  • Poll: Six in 10 say higher health care premiums are 'major concern'

    Six in 10 U.S. adults say they worry about having to pay higher health insurance premiums, according to a Gallup poll. The poll finds that 61 percent say having their premiums raised is a ďmajor concern,Ē higher than several other health care-related problems. Democrats focused heavily on health care on the midterm campaign trail and won back the House majority while saying they would preserve protections for people with pre-existing conditions. The poll, though, finds that premiums are an even bigger concern for the public than pre-existing conditions. Forty-two percent of adults said being denied coverage for a pre-existing condition...

    During a Q&A hosted by the Washington Post, House Speaker Paul Ryan positioned Mitt Romney as John McCainís moral successor. In one of the last interviews Ryan will have given as House Speaker, he praised his long-time friend, former running mate, and Utah senator-elect. ďItís great that heís coming,Ē Ryan said. ďMitt believes thereís a role for him Ö as a standard-bearer for our party.Ē McCain was a maverick GOP element in public perception, often resisting his own partyís majority stance on key issues as a matter of principle. Before his death, McCain famously voted against the repeal-and-replace Republican health...

    Taiwan has rejected same-sex marriages, in a blow to the island's reputation as a rights trailblazer in Asia. The results in referendums come despite a high court ruling in March 2017 in favour of such unions. The court also gave parliament two years to amend laws or pass new ones. It is unclear how Saturday's voting will affect legislation. Meanwhile, President Tsai Ing-wen quit as leader of Taiwan's governing party after defeats in local elections. Her pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is set to lose more than half of the 13 cities and counties it won in 2014, Taiwanese media...

    Sen.-elect Mitt Romney(R-Utah) (R-Utah) on Wednesday condemned President Trump's and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's latest comments about journalist Jamal Khashoggi's killing, calling them "inconsistent" with the U.S. national interest. "The President's and Secretary of State's Khashoggi statements to date are inconsistent with an enduring foreign policy, with our national interest, with basic human rights, and with American greatness," Romney said in a statement. "Sanctions do not necessarily require ending the alliance; they do demand real and painful consequence," he added.

    No, even though the votes from last week arenít even all counted yet, it is, of course, time to move on to the next election. And while the discussion so far has focused on which Democrats are running and who among them is best positioned to defeat President Trump, Iíve got the perfect candidate to dethrone the Donald. Itís Mitt Romney. Or maybe Jeff Flake. Ben Sasse? Sure, whatever. Any of them will do. Because Iím not suggesting that any of these vocal Trump critics from within the presidentís own party ó including Massachusettsí re-gift to Utah ó run as...

    Utah Sen.-elect Mitt Romney signaled he may focus on climate change when he's sworn in in January. In a brief interview with E&E News yesterday, the former Republican presidential nominee said he sees climate change as a "critical area." ....snip Last year, Romney told college students in St. Louis that he was "concerned about the anti-scientific attitude" expressed by some of his Republican colleagues and that he was convinced humanity has played a part in global warming (Climatewire, Oct. 3). "I happen to believe that there is climate change, and I think humans contribute to it in a substantial way,...

    Mitt Romney is finally heading to Washington. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee won a seat in the Senate for his adopted home state of Utah in Tuesday's election. "I will be only one of a hundred United States senators, but I believe that one person doing the right thing at the right time can have a lasting impact," Romney said on Election Night. For Romney, it was the right time. In 2012, he waged a hard-fought presidential campaign, complete with an endorsement from then-businessman Donald Trump. After losing to President Barack Obama, Romney stepped out of the public eye. Four...

    The jury is out on whether Mitt Romney, the nearly certain winner in the Senate race in Utah, will be a powerful voice challenging President Trump or whether he will, as so many other Republicans have, crumble. However, his essay this week in defense of a free press was as excellent start. . . Romney should be credited with responsibly defending the First Amendment. It is good practice for the oath heíll take to uphold the Constitution (including all the amendments) before entering the Senate. Republicans who think the media really is the enemy of the people and/or support Trumpís...

    Two Christian filmmakers appeared before the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul Tuesday to challenge Minnesota state law which they say illegally forces them to produce and create films expressing messages that contradict their core beliefs. Telescope Media Group owners Carl and Angel Larsen have already been threatened with hefty fines and up to 90 days in jail if they choose to disregard the law. The Larsens want to enter the wedding industry. However, the state's Human Rights Act stipulates if the couple creates films celebrating their Christian beliefs about marriage Ė that marriage is between one man...

    Utah Senate candidate and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney claimed Saturday that he wasn't a leader in the "never Trump" movement among conservatives, and said some of the president's policies have been "pretty effective." Romney was asked following a rally in support of Arizona Senate candidate Martha McSally (R) about where he stands with Trump given his fierce criticism of the president during the 2016 campaign. "You led the never Trump movement. I mean, what happened with that?" a reporter asked, in a video posted online. "I donít think that was the case," Romney responded. "President Trump was not...

    Heís asked in the clip below about having led the Never Trump movement, which he denies. And I suppose thatís fair enough: There was no formal Never Trump ďleader.Ē But Romney, as the reigning GOP nominee and the person who delivered the most scathing anti-Trump speech by a Republican during the 2016 cycle, was the closest thing to one. In fact, I take his denial to be aimed not so much at the claim that he led Never Trumpers as at the idea that he even was a Never Trumper.
