Texas Law on Children Seeing Porn Being Challenged

November 3

Dallas (AP)

Pelosi House HealthCare Bill Clocks In at 1,990 Pages

November 3

The House health care bill unveiled Thursday clocks in at 1,990 pages and about 400,000 words. With an estimated 10-year cost of $894 billion, that comes out to about $2.24 million per word. .
