U.S. Senator Portman Wants Action On Prisoner Swap
Ohio’s Republican U.S. Senator is pushing a resolution to say Congress is officially opposed to the recent prisoner swap that freed five Al-Qaeda operatives in exchange for Army Sergeant Bo Bergdahl.

Portman says he’s also working on a proposal to make it easier to hire and fire employees at the Department of Veterans Affairs in light of the recent scandal there.
