    With Video ----------------------- Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) admonished Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) for accusing Republicans of writing the tax bill "for the rich" at a late night hearing on amendments and markups. "With all due respect, I get sick and tired of the rich getting richer," Brown said in a diatribe against Republicans. "I come from the poor people, and I have been here working my whole stinkin' career for people who don't have a chance, and I really resent anybody that says I'm doing it for the rich. Give me a break. I...

    As I contemplate the Trump presidency, I cannot help but think of Joseph Welch. On June 9, 1954, during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Welch, who was the chief counsel for the Army, famously asked the committee chairman if he might speak on a point of personal privilege. After asking Sen. Joseph McCarthy for his attention and telling him to listen with both ears, Welch spoke: “Until this moment, senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness.” And then, in words that today echo from his time to ours, Welch delivered the coup de grace: “You’ve done enough....

    Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) announced his decision to retire from the Senate rather than seek re-election in 2018, citing the new tone and political values that President Donald Trump brought to Washington, DC, as the reason. “When the next generation asks us, ‘Why didn’t you do something? Why didn’t you speak up?’ What are we going to say?” Flake said sorrowfully as he stood up in the Senate for his announcement. “Mr. President, I rise today to say, enough.” Flake said that he no longer could serve as a conservative in a party that no longer valued free trade or...

    GOP Sen. Jeff Flake isn’t ruling out a primary challenge to President Trump in 2020. “I won’t go there. That’s a long time away,” the Arizona senator told CNN, when asked if he or another Republican should oppose Trump in the next election. “It’s early. Time will take care of itself.” Flake announced that he would not be seeking re-election on Tuesday in an emotional speech that sharply criticized Trump and his leadership. After the speech, he told CNN that Republicans like himself, who are willing to criticize the president, have a “narrow path” to election. “I would have to...
  • Jeff Flake Rails Against Trump, But To What End?

    It seems safe to say that Senator Jeff Flake’s new anti-Trump book is politically contraindicated. His approval ratings in his home state, Arizona, are so low they are somewhere down in a missile silo; according to Politico, the president has privately said he would spend $10 million in the Republican primary to whisk Flake out of the Senate with a broom. Then again, maybe this is what a man who’s facing political expiration does: speaks his mind, goes for broke. Or perhaps he’s simply fed up. Flake was one of the few Never Trumpers in Congress to remain so right...
  • Mike Lee to Donald Trump: Step Aside

    Mike Lee to Donald Trump: Step Aside 1:28 AM, Oct 08, 2016 | By John McCormack Following the release of a 2005 video in which Donald Trump made obscene comments about how he gropes women and might commit adultery, Utah senator Mike Lee called on Trump to step aside so that someone else could challenge Hillary Clinton. "You yourself, sir, Mr. Trump, have stated repeatedly that the goal, the objective, has got to be to defeat Hillary Clinton in November. I couldn't agree more. It is for precisely that reason, Mr. Trump, that I respectfully ask you, with all do...
