After the news broke of Trump's pick for the nation's top cop, Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) said Sessions "will make a great attorney general." "The attorney general has the responsibility to...

Max Baucus about exactly where all of this “train wreck” blame belongs: Dear Senator Baucus,I was stunned, and also saddened, to read of your complaint that Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is doing an insufficient job informing the public about the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), otherwise known as Obamacare. My shock wasn’t because I disagreed: You’re right to say this legislation has led to great uncertainty for hard-working Americans, small business owners, and families. No, I was shocked because you wrote...
