The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Yet that’s exactly where we are three years into the conflict in Yemen.

Today and I introduced the Choose Medicare Act - a universal Medicare buy in for every American and every American business. It's a simple idea: allow Medicare to fairly compete against private insurance and let consumers decide.

I've met with new farmers across Connecticut and one thing I hear often is how difficult it is to start a farm and juggle student loans. That's why this week, and I intro'd a bill to create a loan forgiveness program for beginning farmers and ranchers.
