    "Despite all that good news, there's plenty of horror stories being told. All of them are untrue, but they're being told all over America," said Reid. "The leukemia patient whose insurance policy was canceled [and] could die without her medication, Mr. President, that's an ad being paid for by two billionaire brothers. It's absolutely false. Or the woman whose insurance policy went up $700 a month--ads paid for around America by the multibillionaire Koch brothers, and the ad is false. "We heard about the evils of Obamacare, about the lives it's ruining in Republicans' stump speeches and in ads paid...

    The allegations against Sen. Robert Menendez may have started with unsubstantiated stories about trysts with prostitutes, but questions about the lawmaker’s conduct have reached the point where they’re not focused on sex. A slow drip of national news reports about the New Jersey Democrat and his ties to Florida ophthalmologist and political donor Salomon Melgen have put his office on the defensive over an assortment of issues including a port contract in the Dominican Republic and a possible intervention in a Medicare billing dispute involving the doctor. Menendez tried to move forward with his normal agenda Thursday, holding a morning...

    It’s your money, but evidently some Senators don’t want you to know how they spend it There is a bill in the U.S.Senate (S 2590) which would allow you to go online at a single site and see how your taxes are being spent. However, one or more Senators, acting in secrecy, put a hold on the bill and refused to allow it to come up for debate and action. The bill, introduced by Sens. Coburn of Oklahoma and Obama of Illinois, would create a website database with access to information on almost all federal spending. Just before the annual...

Byron Dorgan (news, bio, voting record)'s political group just three weeks after the North Dakota Democrat urged fellow senators to fund a tribal school program Abramoff's clients wanted to use.The check was one of about five dozen the Coushattas listed...
