senate gop proposes large cuts to social services


st. paul, minn. — senate republicans said monday that they want big cuts for many of minnesota's social services programs, while state officials and democrats believe that could harm families with unexpected pregnancies and those who receive medical assistance and social security.the gop's $15.4 billion bill showed a $671 million gap between democratic gov. mark dayton's and the senate republican budget proposals for all health and human services programs over the next two years — with the department of human services seeing the biggest cuts. monday's committee on health and human services meeting dealt mostly with the budgetary aspects of the 400-plus page bill because senate staffers had yet to compile the lengthy legislation's policy effects, angering democrats on the committee.minnesot

why ‘lie about something that you don’t have to lie about?’


msnbc’s joe scarborough was baffled why attorney general jeff sessions failed to disclose his meetings with the russian ambassador while he was a senator and campaign surrogate for donald trump.the washington post reported late wednesday that sessions had met twice with the ambassador, which contradicted claims he made during his confirmation hearings before the u.s. senate.scarborough asked his co-host mika brzezinski why sessions would conceal those meetings, which wouldn’t have necessarily been unusual for his role on the senate armed services committee.“what does it say, mika, when you lie about something that you don’t have to lie about,” scarborough said. “there is a multiplying effect — when you have your nsa, your national security adviser, lying and having to resign. and then you
