Utah Sen. Orrin G. Hatch conceded Wednesday it's only a matter of time before gay marriage is legal across the country, even though he doesn't think that's the right way to go.
Senate Republicans on Wednesday told President Obama's pick to lead the Health and Human Services Department that they expect the government to recoup millions of dollars in federal grants from states that set up flawed websites under Obamacare.

The Senate immigration bill cleared the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote Tuesday night, ducking — for now — big fights on guns, gay rights and how broadly the legalization is drawn, and leaving the 867-page overhaul mostly unscathed by conservative attacks.

Jack Lew, President Obama's pick to head the Treasury Department, faced several uncomfortable moments over his brief stint in the private sector, but he emerged from a Senate hearing Wednesday apparently still on track for a relatively quick confirmation by the full Senate in the coming weeks.

The political groups that injected millions of dollars into political races over the past two years may already be giving way to the rise of a new class of politically oriented nonprofits, organizations that have most of the same powers as super PACs, and one major advantage: They don't have to meet the same strict requirements for disclosing where their money comes from.
Persuading Massachusetts voters to elect a Republican to a full U.S. Senate term isn't easy, and it has left Sen. Scott P. Brown blazing a lonely trail in Washington, where he's spent much of the year voting with Democrats — or bucking both parties altogether.

Orrin G. Hatch appeared to be coasting to victory in Utah's Republican Senate primary, and then Richard G. Lugar happened.
"It's a mystery why the administration would make even more they cannot keep," said Mr. Hatch, who estimates the initiative will cost $2.5 trillion over 10 years. "This shouldnt be called a health care bill of rights, but a bill of goods that the American people arent buying. ... Ninety days after the president signed it into law, one thing hasnt changed: The American people are as opposed now as they were then. Politically motivated threats wont lower skyrocketing health care costs."
Sen. Orrin G. Hatch, Utah Republican, said that Mr. Obama making more promises is a bad idea, considering the problems keeping the ones made earlier.
