NBC's Tom Curry: "House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Democrats are not losing confidence in President Barack Obama’s ability to make the Affordable Care Act work and don’t fear Obamacare’s effect on their chances in next year’s elections. Appearing Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press, Pelosi said, ‘I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year’ when voters cast ballots in the mid-term elections, but ‘I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act.’”
Politico: "Without much fanfare, House Republicans are crafting an election-year agenda that’s meant to target what they believe are the real economic issues facing middle-class Americans — and thereby attract the kind of voters that the GOP and Mitt Romney alienated in 2012. They hope the initiatives will help them hang onto the majority in 2014 and paint a more positive image of the party."
