What a Roy Moore Win Could Mean for Washington
On Tuesday, voters in Alabama will choose between two very different political styles: a flame-throwing wild card and an Establishment-backed reliable vote. But as the Alabama Republican Senate primary draws to a close, the differences between incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and conservative firebrand Roy Moore amount to whether voters are happy with the status quo in Washington, and how they felt about their last governor. Strange, the former state attorney general, was appointed in February by embattled former Gov. Robert Bentley, and is backed by President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in a special elec...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Make Their First Official Public Appearance Together
(TORONTO) — Hand in hand, Prince Harry and girlfriend Meghan Markle made their first official public appearance as a couple. Markle might have even left a wedding hint. The prince and Markle held hands Monday as they walked toward Toronto’s city hall and attended a wheelchair tennis event at Harry’s Invictus Games for wounded veterans. Markle wore a white button-down shirt with blue jeans ripped at the knee. The white shirt is called “The Husband Shirt” and is by designer Misha Nonoo.

Republican Senators Vow to ‘Press On’ With Healthcare Bill at Debate
Just hours after a third Republican senator came out against the latest healthcare proposal, all but guaranteeing its defeat, GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy defended it during a televised debate with independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar on CNN. Graham and Cassidy, the namesakes of the latest Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, spent the night repeating their talking points about the law signed by President Obama in 2010. “It’s about Obamacare failing,” Graham said. “It’s not working and it’s never going to work.” But the Gra...

The Dallas Cowboys and Owner Jerry Jones Kneel in Unity Before National Anthem
The Dallas Cowboys made a show of unity before their game against the Arizona Cardinals, but it wasn’t during the national anthem. The Dallas players all kneeled with owner Jerry Jones and his family before a giant American flag was unfurled, drawing some boos from the Cardinals fans. They rose arm-in-arm just before the singing of the anthem. Jones has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and it was unclear if his team would protest during the anthem, as teams across the NFL did Sunday. The Cowboys kneeled near the 50-yard line. The Cardinals gathered on the goal line as a team, some of them locking ar...

President Trump and Republicans Are Planning Big Tax Cuts for the Rich and Corporations
(WASHINGTON) — The White House and congressional Republicans are finalizing a tax plan that would slash the corporate rate while likely reducing the levy for the wealthiest Americans, with President Donald Trump ready to roll out the policy proposal at midweek. The grand plan to rewrite the nation’s tax code would be the first major overhaul in three decades, delivering on a Trump campaign pledge and providing a sorely needed legislative achievement. It also is expected to eliminate or reduce some tax breaks and deductions. The plan would likely cut the tax rate for the wealthiest Americans, now at 39.6 percent...

Latest GOP Obamacare Repeal Would Reduce Insurance Coverage for ‘Millions’
The Congressional Budget Office says the new Republican bill aimed at repealing President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul would reduce health insurance coverage for “millions” of people. The nonpartisan analysts say people would lose coverage in part because of $1 trillion in cuts through 2026 in Medicaid. That’s the health insurance program for the poor and disabled. Others would drop policies because the bill would halt federal subsidies Obama’s law gives them. Still others would be uninsured because the measure drops the law’s tax penalty on people who don’t buy coverage. Th...

Has This Happened Before? 6 Things to Know About the History Behind NFL Protests
With more than 200 NFL players choosing to sit or kneel while the national anthem played before football games over this past weekend — largely in response to President Trump’s continued criticism of athletes participating in such demonstrations — it’s worth remembering that this movement didn’t just begin last year with former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to kneel in order to make a statement about how the country is not practicing what it preaches. In fact, this week’s protests are simply the latest in a long history of athletes making public statements in the na...
