A Republican senator from Utah relaunched a measure that bans abortion in the District after 20 weeks of pregnancy mere moments after the House defeated its version of the bill Tuesday night.
Several prominent Republican senators are decrying President Obama's decision to hand over to the Iraqi government a Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist believed to be responsible for the deaths of at least five U.S. servicemen in Iraq.
But that doesn't make them equally guilty, he says.
"I am concerned that too many Americans continue to lose their homes and livelihoods through no fault of their own, and I fear that, until the pace of recovery picks up, this unacceptable situation will continue," Sen. Joe Lieberman, Connecticut independent and chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, wrote in a letter to Mr. Obama's budget director earlier this month.
