Latest Senate Items
U.S. Senate candidates George Allen and Tim Kaine found plenty to disagree about on issues such as taxes and health care Thursday in their first joint appearance since Mr. Allen's Republican primary victory June 12. But the pair found some areas of consensus as well.

Saving its biggest case for last, the Supreme Court is expected to announce its verdict Thursday on President Barack Obama's health care law. The outcome is likely to be a factor in the presidential campaign and help define John Roberts' legacy as chief justice. But the court's ruling almost certainly will not be the last word on America's tangled efforts to address health care woes. The problems of high medical costs, widespread waste and tens of millions of people without insurance will require Congress and the president to keep looking for answers, whether or not the Affordable Care Act passes the test of constitutionality.
