    Maine Sen. Susan Collins promised the Senate would not confirm a replacement for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein if that individual would not commit to continuing the Russia investigation. Collins, R-Maine, said on ABC’s “This Week” that if President Trump fires special counsel Robert Mueller and his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to end the Russia probe, the Senate won’t allow the investigation to stop. “Only the deputy attorney general with fire him. That ... investigation is still going to go on,” Collins said. “So, it would not spell the end of the investigation. If a new deputy attorney...

    The Left's romance with the Islamic Republic ensues. The Senate debated on Tuesday a resolution introduced by Vermont Socialist Bernie Sanders that would require the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Yemen. The surprising support the resolution won from 44 U.S. Senators handed a big win to Iran, which is engaged in a hot war with Saudi Arabia on the Arabian Peninsula. And it was a huge slap in the face to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who was meeting with President Trump in the White House as the Senate debated the motion on the floor. It also showed the...
  • Trump: The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe.

    The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe. @DHSgov says it would be “the end of immigration enforcement in America.” It creates a giant amnesty (including for dangerous criminals), doesn’t build the wall, expands chain migration, keeps the visa... lottery, continues deadly catch-and-release, and bars enforcement even for FUTURE illegal immigrants. Voting for this amendment would be a vote AGAINST law enforcement, and a vote FOR open borders. If Dems are actually serious about DACA, they should support the Grassley bill!

    Credit six-term Republican Sen. Richard Shelby for Democrat Doug Jones’ shocking win in Alabama, senators from both parties said Wednesday. Shelby, Alabama’s senior senator and the state’s most influential official, publicly opposed GOP nominee Roy Moore and declared before the election that ”the state of Alabama deserves better” than a former judge accused of sexual contact with teenage girls decades ago. A former Democrat, Shelby, 83, announced weeks before the election that he had already cast an absentee ballot for another, unspecified Republican, even as President Donald Trump and other prominent state Republicans stood up for Moore. “I give the...

    Sen. Susan Collins, a liberal Maine Republican, said on Sunday she's disappointed that the Republican Party has resumed its support for Roy Moore, who's running for a U.S. Senate seat in the special election that takes place on Tuesday. But she also questioned whether the Senate should overturn the will of the people, if Alabama voters send Moore to Washington tomorrow. "I would point out that I did not support Mr. Moore even prior to these allegations of sexual misconduct because I was concerned about his anti-Muslim comments, his anti-LGBT comments," Collins told CBS's "Face the Nation." "And also, most...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said early Thursday that she expects legislation to lower health-care premiums to pass Congress before senators take a final vote on a $1.5 trillion tax-reform bill that would repeal the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate. “When you take out that one provision from the ACA it causes premiums to go up as healthier, younger people leave the market place,” she said. Senate GOP leaders at the urging of conservatives have added to the tax package a provision that would repeal ObamaCare’s requirement that people purchase health coverage. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that could cause insurance...

    Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said Wednesday that the Senate would have “no choice but to seat” Judge Roy Moore if he wins the Alabama Senate race in December. According to the law, “We would have no choice but to seat him,” she said, speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill. Her remarks come amid threats from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other establishment Republican senators that they will push Moore out even if he wins on December 12 over Democrat Doug Jones. Republican senators who opposed Moore are calling for him to step aside, after the Washington Post published an interview...

    Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and several other Republican senators said on Thursday if allegations are true, Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore should drop out of the race. The Washington Post released a story on Thursday alledging that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32, as well as other cases of sexual misconduct. Moore denied the allegations. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “If these allegations are true, he must...

    Sen. Susan Collins will remain a thorn in President Trump’s side in Washington – after announcing Friday that she will stay out of the Maine governor’s race. “I am a congenital optimist. I continue to believe that Congress can, and will, be more productive,” Collins said at a Chamber of Commerce event in Maine. “I want to continue to play a key role in advancing policies that strengthen our nation, help our hardworking families, improve our health care system, and bring peace and stability to a troubled and violent world.” Collins, 64, has been weighing for months whether she’d make...

    WASHINGTON — Senator Susan Collins of Maine said on Monday that she would oppose the latest plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republican leaders clearly short of the votes they need for passage. Ms. Collins, a Republican, announced her opposition in a written statement, delivering a significant and possibly fatal blow to the party’s seven-year quest to dismantle the health law.

    U.S. Sen. Susan Collins all but said she would vote “no” on an Affordable Care Act repeal bill on Friday morning at an event in Portland. “I’m leaning against the bill,” the Maine Republican said after listing a series of serious deficiencies in the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill. “I’m just trying to do what I believe is the right thing for the people of Maine,” Collins said. She said Graham-Cassidy undermines pre-existing conditions, a major flaw in the bill. “I’m reading the fine print on Graham-Cassidy,” Collins said. She said insurers could charge sky-high rates to people with pre-existing conditions. “The...

    Abortionist Dr. Warren Hern’s abortion facility in Boulder, Colorado, does abortions all the way up until birth. He brazenly advertises third-trimester abortions on his website. The next time someone tells you abortions never happen in the third trimester, send him to Hern’s site. Abortion clinic manager turned pro-lifer Abby Johnson once described a conversation she and the workers at her abortion facility had about Hern. Johnson said her boss at the time said the babies aborted by Hern are so large, “they come out crying and looking for their mama.” I remember one day at Planned Parenthood we were standing...

    Boeing Co. and Airbus SE voiced concerns about a proposed tie-up of two leading suppliers Tuesday, potentially upsetting United Technologies Corp.’s $23 billion acquisition of Rockwell Collins Inc. The world’s largest planemakers added to the chorus of skeptics of a deal that would create an aerospace behemoth with a range of products to outfit jetliners and warplanes. Investors sent United Technologies shares plunging by the most in two years, while credit ratings companies said the manufacturer risks downgrades. Boeing, which has been squeezing suppliers for discounts, warned it would take action to protect itself if it saw the merger as...

    Maine Republican wrote in Paul Ryan for president in 2016 President Donald Trump is already stumping for re-election in 2020. But at least one member of his party says it’s uncertain if he’ll become the GOP’s standard-bearer. Maine Sen. Susan Collins, known as a Trump critic, was interviewed on MSNBC Monday morning and asked if she believed the president would end up as the Republican nominee in 2020. Her reply: Collins also told MSNBC she didn’t support Trump in 2016, instead writing in House Speaker Paul Ryan’s name. “That was very hard for me to do as a lifelong Republican,”...

    Two of the senators who singlehandedly derailed the skinny repeal of Obamacare were awarded a sit down interview with the admiring Dana Bash Friday on CNN. The bright faced journalist applauded Sens. Susan Collins (ME) and Lisa Murkowski (AK) for having the “cajones” to vote against the Republican bill when they knew half the country would view them as heretics. Collins admitted it was an “uncomfortable” vote. But, they both insisted it was the right thing to do, which is why they did not fear backlash from GOP leadership, or even intimidating tweets from the Oval Office. Both women said...

    The signs calling for the repeal of New York’s SAFE Act have become a fixture in the landscape of many parts of upstate New York, including the Finger Lakes. Now a western New York congressman is sponsoring legislation he claims would do what so many Second Amendment supporters have called for since the state Legislature adopted it with virtually no public debate in 2013: Repeal the controversial gun-control legislation called Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act. Rep. Chris Collins, R-27 of Clarence, said Monday that he is sponsoring legislation called the Second Amendment Guarantee Act, which he...

    Maine’s Republican Sen. Susan Collins said that she would not be swayed by President Donald Trump’s apparent threats to pull the plug on key Obamacare funds, including subsidies for members of Congress and their staff. In a Sunday interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Collins first said that even if Trump cut off Congress’ subsidies, it would not change her mind about opposing the health care repeal. Tapper then asked whether if cuts to cost sharing reduction payments, or CSRs, that the federal government provides for low-income people would affect her decision. “It would not affect...
