Q9! RT @: @ Huge cuts to Medicare home health will harm seniors. Your thoughts.

.@ I don't expect huge Medicare cuts in near term, Congress still unwilling to make tough choices. ^@

 

Roll Call
 
Q10! MT @: When I tell people I live/work in DC they ask if media here should be on Obama payroll. How beholden is RC to WH whims?

 

Roll Call
 
.@ Not at all. Nationally, some reporters/commentators in tank for Obama but most reporters simply trying to do jobs ^@

 

Roll Call
 
Q11! RT @: @ What are your thoughts on the VA Senate race for Ds? Does TommyP increase or decrease Dems chances?

 

Roll Call

Roll Call
 
Q12! RT @: @ who do you expect can win the hearts of college aged republicans in 2012?

 

Roll Call

Roll Call
 
Q13! MT @: @ what's your take on how Calif. House delegation will shake out after redistricting & move to jungle primary?

 

Roll Call

Roll Call
 
Q14! RT @: @ @ if Christie decides to throw his hat in can he do damage?

Roll Call
 
Q15! MT @ S.Israel refuses to say Dems can re-take House in '12. Is he right to be cautious? Your # for Dem pickups? (Ed. note: Steve is a Roll Call political reporter.)

 

Roll Call

Roll Call
 
Q16! RT @: @ for @ Q&A: Who's the best 2012 GOP contender (a) politically and (b) governmentally?

Q17! MT @: .@ Who would you rather have on your fantasy team this year? Josh Johnson or Matt Cain and why? (Ed. note: Nathan is Stu's colleague.)

Roll Call
 
Q18! RT @: @ for @ Q&A: Can a comparison be made between a baseball relief pitcher and a party's VP selection?
