    Free college tuition is “a great goal except it’s really expensive,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said at a town hall meeting in Fulton, Mo. last week. “We can’t just start having the government pay for everything.” “We owe a lot of debt,” McCaskill also said. “And if we’re not careful, we’re going to get so far under that we could be Greece.” “Free college tuition is a great goal except it’s really expensive. It’s really expensive and we are struggling with how we’re going to pay for what we have in place right now in terms of Medicare,” McCaskill said....
  • When liberals at New Republic rediscover state's rights, conservatives should say "great!" (Vanity)

    When hard-right conservatives like Patrick J. Buchanan and hard-left liberals writing for magazines like the New Republic both agree that it's time to reinvigorate long-forgotten concepts like federalism and states rights, and let liberal and conservative states both pursue the policies their voters think work best for their own people, something important has changed in our political discourse. Either something's gone seriously wrong and our nation is falling apart, or something is finally working right as both sides of the political divide figure out just **WHY** our Constitution was written as a compromise between the interests of thirteen very different...

    Fortunately, NewsDiffs.com saved the original One form of fake news is to claim something happened when it never did. Another form of fake news is to claim something did not happen when in fact it actually did - especially when said claim is designed to cast aspersions on someone else. And if you’re the New York Times, you can take this to an even higher level: You can report something that appears to cast aspersions on someone you don’t like (aka “a Republican”), and then, when it comes to light that this something is actually not true and that the...

Alas… As the Trump cabinet targeting continues, Sen. Claire McCaskill stepped in a huge pile by claiming she never had a meeting or call with a Russian ambassador.

    Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign Thursday morning over allegations that he met with Russia’s ambassador twice last year then made a statement indicating otherwise during his confirmation hearings. McCaskill has joined the dog pile of Democrats calling for Sessions’s resignation over the debacle. She threw some additional shade in the Attorney General’s direction Thursday morning by tweeting that she’s never met with Russia’s ambassador in the 10 years she’s served on the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. {..snip..}

    NASCAR champ Carl Edwards seems to be open to trading his driver’s seat for a spot in the U.S. Senate. The 37-year-old didn’t exactly rule out challenging Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat whose second term in office expires in 2018. “I believe firmly in the principles that the U.S. was founded upon. If I could help, I definitely would consider it,” he texted to the Associated Press on Wednesday.

Terry Smith, a political science professor at Columbia College, speculated in a Wednesday piece for KBIA's Talking Politics that Edwards will challenge U.S. Sen.

He texted: "I believe firmly in the principles that the U.S. was founded upon. If I could help, I definitely would consider it."

A lot of Republican friends are just saying, ‘we can’t let this guy be commander-in-chief. He has no idea what he’s talking about.’”

I had just made the biggest gamble of my political career—a $1.7 million gamble—and it had paid off. Running for reelection to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat from Missouri, I had successfully manipulated the Republican primary so that in the general election I would face the candidate I was most likely to beat. And this is how I had promised my daughters we would celebrate. But first let me go back...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump's incendiary comments - and the GOP response - are proving political gold for Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid jumped on both Tuesday, first attacking Trump for his criticism of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., then pivoting to a larger target: the growing GOP presidential field and the entire Republican Party. Reid, D-Nev., noted that while Trump's GOP White House rivals were nearly unanimous in denouncing Trump's suggestion that McCain is not really a war hero, they were more tentative in responding to his criticisms of Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists."(continued)
