What Happened To The Republican Consensus On Climate Change?

In May right-wing activist Marc Morano said Republican candidates "can believe in the science of global warming ... if you keep your mouth shut about it and you advocate no quote-unquote solution to the problem." By contrast, the following statements show that in previous years, prominent Republicans spoke about both the robust body of evidence indicating that human activities are changing the climate and the need to address the problem. While the political discourse has since regressed, the scientific consensus has not.

The Chamber Of Commerce's Health Care Lies Keep Getting "Worse"

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has taken to the airwaves with cookie-cutter ads attacking Reps. Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Mary Jo Kilroy (D-OH), and John Boccieri (D-OH), as well as Kansas House candidate Stephene Moore, with misleading information on Medicare. The Chamber's ad claims that the Representatives have made (and Moore would make) problems such as unemployment, spending, and debt worse by supporting "big-government health care." The ad follows up this falsehood by claiming that Heinrich, Boccieri, and Kilroy voted to "gut Medicare" and are therefore hurting families in their respective states. Contrary to the Chamber's accusations, the Affordable Care Act actually strengthens Medicare and improves coverage of preventative benefits.
