    In an apparent violation of the 1907 Hatch Act - which strictly prohibits the use of public offices to influence the outcome of elections - the efforts were coordinated by the White House Office of Political Affairs, which used political muscle in an attempt to retain Republican control of Congress.

    Well I guess all these great Obama solutions are a big waste of time then. Cancel the debate and don't bother voting. It's all over.

    Who's gonna break it to Barack that his plans are useless?

    I guess everyone here forgets about the use of air force one to run for the NY senate.

    The hatch Act only applies to employees, not Congress, and the Executive branch, like most of the laws they pass, they exempt themsleves from it.
