After zipping through the backyards and wallets of rich Democratic donors, President Obama concluded a West Coast fundraising swing on Thursday by trying to shift his focus back to the middle class. In a speech at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, Obama revived his push to crack down on "corporate deserters," his description of U.S. companies that avoid paying taxes by reorganizing overseas. In a damning assessment, he accused the companies of "renouncing their U.S. citizenship" and "fleeing the country" while sticking U.S. taxpayers "with the tab."

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Arizona´s entire congressional delegation sent a letter Thursday to Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald urging him to name a permanent leader of the Phoenix VA medical center to replace Director Sharon Helman even though she remains on the agency´s payroll. The letter, unusual in its bipartisan consensus, notes that two temporary bosses have overseen the beleaguered Phoenix VA Health Care System since Helman was placed on leave May 1 amid allegations of fraud and mismanagement. A third fill-in is expected in November."Surely, we can agree that the circumstances surrounding the recent issues at VA facilities around the country are anything

Nancy Pelosi is almost single-handedly keeping House Democrats afloat. She has raised $80 million for her party this cycle and more than $400 million during her dozen years as party leader.It’s an eye-popping sum that places her as one of the top Democratic fundraisers in history, in the realm of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.Pelosi said in an interview that donors give because they believe in the Democrats’ mission, not because of any strong-arming tactics by her.“I’m not interested in anything really for myself,” the California lawmaker insisted. “It’s just about the causes that we believe in and

When Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted last month on two felony charges stemming from how he dealt with a misbehaving Democratic state official, the image of the stuttering 2012 Republican primary challenger was replaced with that of a hero-cowboy in the eyes of many conservatives. Perry was under attack from the left wing, and his response was not to apologize but to walk through a hail of blue-hued bullets and emerge laughing, without a mark on him. But some conservative true believers have begun to notice something rather suspicious: The company Perry keeps seems more suited to a mainstream

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month.

The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
