New Senate ad in controversy over old Facebook posts

(CNN) - Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas is launching a new TV commercial Wednesday that attacks his Republican primary challenger over old Facebook postings that included some "insensitive" comments.

"Dr. Milton Wolf's patients trusted him, but stunning news reports show that Wolf exposed private patient X-rays and other personal information on Facebook – where Wolf relentlessly poked fun at the dead or wounded. A Kansas City medical ethics expert called Wolf's behavior 'beyond alarming' for a professional in the field of medicine," says the narrator in the 30-second spot.

Health care battle heats up again

(CNN) – As the Obama administration and Democrats gear up to promote the president's sweeping health care reform as a winning solution in the next election cycle, Republicans are gearing up to prove the opposite.

Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, argued Saturday in the GOP's weekly address that Obamacare is a law crafted out of political maneuvering and has an ill-fated future for Americans.

Roberts targets Obama for recess appointment

(CNN) – Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts is taking aim at President Barack Obama for making a recess appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick as the new head of the federal agency overseeing Medicare and Medicaid.

The recess appointment allowed the president to install Berwick while the Senate was on vacation over the July 4 holiday, thereby bypassing what could have been a lengthy confirmation process.

“It is ironic that the President chose Independence Day for this action, avoiding the Senate’s Constitutional check on executive power, to appoint Dr. Berwick,” Roberts said in the weekly Republican radio address.
