Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake will try to force a vote on a plan for Dreamers

Politics
Campaign Action Following last week's debacle of a debate on immigration legislation, which was engineered to fail by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake says in an op-ed in The Washington Post that he will try again. [W]hen the Senate reconvenes next week, the first action I will take will be to introduce a bill extending DACA protections for three years and providing $7.6 billion to fully fund the first three years of the administration's border-security proposal. I’ll be the first to admit this “three for three” approach is far from a perfect solution, but it would provide a temporary fix by beginning the process of improving border security and ensuring DACA recipients will not face potential deportation.

Chelsea are desperate to keep Hazard whom they signed from Lille in 2012. The Belgian international has become one of the best forwards in

Kentucky is going to have to pay more to cover fewer people with Medicaid under Bevin's plan

Politics
Campaign Action Gov. Matt Bevin, Kansas’ own "Freedom" maniac, received the first waiver from the Trump administration to impose work requirements on Medicaid recipients. He's also the first governor to be sued over it. Bevin's argument is that it will save the state money because it will force some 100,000 people off of Medicaid in the state. Because he thinks 100,000 more uninsured people is a good thing, apparently. The other problem for Bevin, besides the 100,000 more uninsured people, is that it's going to cost the state more to kick those people off the program than if it did nothing but continue the program as it was. Cost savings come from the assumption that nearly 100,000 people will drop out of Medicaid by the end of the five-year project recently approved by the federal
