GOP senator appeals 'fatally flawed' ruling on ObamaCare lawsuit

Sen. Ron Johnson on Monday took his ObamaCare lawsuit to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing a lower court was 'fatally flawed" when it ruled he lacked standing to challenge a portion of the law. Johnston took the latest step in his lawsuit against the Obama administration, in which he argues the Office of Personnel Management violated the law by allowing lawmakers and their "official" staff to continue receiving federal employee health subsidies when signing up for the newly created exchanges under ObamaCare.

Al Franken Opponent: 'He's Been Invisible As A Senator'

Since Al Franken barely won a U.S. Senate seat in Minnesota after a statewide recount in 2008, the former Saturday Night Live comedian has kept his head down and largely avoided national publicity in an effort not be portrayed as one big joke of a legislator. But this low-key strategy may be backfiring for the liberal Democratic incumbent now that he faces a challenge in this year's election from a Republican businessman, who is arguing that the senator should have been out-front more the last six years.
