Lindsey Graham: 'Shame On Us As Republicans'

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) expressed disappointment with his GOP colleagues in the House of Representatives for failing to pass legislation on immigration. “Shame on us as Republicans,” he said. “Shame on us as Republicans for having a body that cannot generate a solution to an issue that is national security, it’s cultural and it’s economic.” “I’m close to the people in the House, but I'm disappointed in my party," Graham continued.

The New Health Care: When Health Coverage Expansion Means Longer Waits for a Doctor

The New Health Care: When Health Coverage Expansion Means Longer Waits for a Doctor

One concern about the Affordable Care Act is that as more Americans get health insurance and start using it, those who already have coverage will have to wait longer for care.

Pitbull's Latino-themed jokes at the American Music Awards host not appreciated

Pitbull brought some Latino flavor when he took the stage to host the American Music Awards for the second consecutive year. But for some viewers, the Miami rapper left a sour taste in their mouths. The show started with a burst of energy thanks to Taylor Swift’s on fire, almost literally, performance of “Blank Space,” but when the Cuban-American rapper took the stage for his intro, it just fell flat. “Mr. Worldwide” spent a good portion of...
