Proposition 37: Battle over Genetically Modified Foods Polls show a lot of support for Proposition 37 on California's November ballot, at least for the moment. Prop 37 would require the labeling of genetically modified food, and this week, Monsanto contributed $4.2 million to the "No" campaign , raising the total to $25 million. That's ten times what supporters have raised so far.
California Voters and the Food Supply In an era of political polarization, Democrats and Republicans agree on one thing: about 90 percent in both parties tell pollsters they want to know if they're eating genetically modified food. Now it appears that a measure called " The California Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act " has qualified for the November ballot and, if it passes, the consequences could be worldwide.
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
