Senate health care bill vs. Obamacare vs. House proposal

The new bill would not upend Obamacare as abruptly as the House legislation, passed in May, but both call for significant cuts that would likely increase the ranks of the uninsured.
Opinion: GOP's remarkable move to the right
In 1965, 13 Senate and 70 House Republicans joined Democrats to pass the Social Security Amendments that created Medicare and Medicaid. Many Republicans in the House and Senate took this vote kicking and screaming, but in the end, they joined the Democratic majority to create the largest expansion of government health care coverage in American history until the Affordable Care Act.

Opinion: It's likely Trump can't fire Mueller
There has been much talk about whether President Donald Trump is considering firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In my view, this is just talk -- not so much because the President might not want to fire him, but because the rules governing the hiring and firing of the special counsel would make it very difficult for him to do so without triggering a congressional inquiry into whether he abused the power of his office.

Recycling is a concept as old as trash itself.
