Sen. Franken offers effort to pass anti-bullying legislation


Washington, D.C. -- During a press conference today (Thursday, Nov. 18), U.S. Sen.

Klobuchar, Franken press for ANWR protection


Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar pressed the Obama administration last week to grant the “strongest possible protections” to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in a letter signed by 25 senators. The letter suggests that oil drilling should not occur in the wilderness area. “As we approach the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge on Dec. 6, 2010, we ask that you grant the Arctic Refuge the strongest possible protections,” the senators said in their letter. “Many Inupiat people across the North Slope have voiced ...


Al Franken Calls the Anti-Trust Cops on Comcast


Comcast executives may think that they made all the right contributions, lobbied all the right players and greased all the right wheels to get control of NBC.

Huffington Post: The Republicans’ Big Health Care ‘Idea’ Is Complete Nonsense
Huffington Post: The Republicans’ Big Health Care ‘Idea’ Is Complete Nonsense If you watched the Republican debate on Thursday, you probably noticed the candidates agreeing that insurance companies should be allowed to sell policies across state lines. “We have to get rid of the lines around the states,” said Donald Trump, making vigorous circles with his hands for emphasis, “so that there’s serious, serious competition.” It would, he promised, “be a beautiful thing.” This is often presented as the Republicans’ Big Idea on health care — in fact, as with Trump, it’s often the only idea they can come up with. But it isn’t a serious plan for improving our nation’s health care system. In fact, it’s absolute nonsense.
