Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., tears a page from the national health care bill during a press conference at the Capitol in 2012. If you’re an American who misses the days when you could pick a doctor out of the phone book, write a check to pay for the visit and be done with it, you may be pleased to hear that the next president’s nominee to run the nation’s health system belongs to an organization that agrees with you. The nominee is Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., Donald Trump’s pick as secretary of health and human services, and the organization is the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, an Arizona-based group that promotes libertarian principles in health care — and an array of far-right conspiracy theories about many other topics.

The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture. This all comes after a host of plant layoffs and a temporary shutdown to the Michigan facility.

By Ernest Scheyder and Terray Sylvester CANNON BALL, N.D.

With the dust now settled from the election, Democrats are looking to rebuild the political "blue wall" of traditionally Democratic upper Midwest and Great Lakes states that Republican Donald Trump captured with an appeal to white, working-class voters. Hillary Clinton's failure to hold key blocs of these voters helped seal Trump's stunning electoral victory and leaves Democrats with a gaping, perhaps long-term, hole in the party's national battle front. Trump carried Michigan and Pennsylvania, where Democratic nominees had won the previous six presidential elections.
