The Trump tweet illustrates a much larger problem facing congressional Republicans: They don’t want to fight—about the wall, or about much of anything, particularly spending.
With the federal debt at $21 trillion and rising, if Congress will not act on this package, when will it discover fiscal discipline?
Mary Katharine Ham and Mattie Duppler host today’s Federalist Radio Hour to chat about America’s week in Royals obsession, the tax bill aftermath, and more.
We agree with President Trump: a spending bill like the one passed this March must never happen again. Unfortunately, Congress currently is on a path to repeat that debacle.
The two immense challenges we citizens will eventually be forced to face are the staggering explosion of federal debt and the accompanying increased dependency upon government.
Republicans yet again voted to fund an organization that aborts babies and spends taxpayer dollars to boot conservatives from office. What gives?
The brief lapse in appropriations had serious underlying causes, and the flip way its correspondents covered the incident led to arguably the dumbest headline in Politico’s history.
The budget proposal means the Trump administration is now actively working to codify not one but two Obamacare bailouts that a Republican Congress denied to the Obama administration.
Parents and grandparents who otherwise work hard to help their kids have no compunction about burdening them with endless budget deficits resulting in a crushing national debt.
By throwing money at the problem of rising drug costs, Republican leaders’ ‘solution’ may end up raising them even faster.
President Trump signed a deal to avert a government shutdown for another two years by basically giving the Democrats all the spending they wanted.
Of course, Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer want to ram the deal through Congress by Thursday evening—because we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.
While not conceding on the substance of immigration legislation, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made an important concession on process—one he has not made to conservatives.
The facts of DACA lay bare the fraud underlying the Democrats’ politically motivated, selective shuttering of the federal government.
When the shutdown comes this Friday, or anytime thereafter, please consult these rules to determine exactly who you should blame.
Shortly before departing for their Christmas break, lawmakers of both parties voted to waive provisions that would have led to federal spending reductions over the coming decade.
Neither party wants to reduce spending—a bad sign for future generations, who will pay the price for current leaders’ profligate ways.
Continuing resolutions, as military leaders have warned Congress repeatedly, are uniquely devastating to military readiness. It’s been nine years of this.
Continuing resolutions ultimately cost taxpayers, who pay for congressionally induced instability and terribly inefficient funding and contract management.
If an outright repeal of the ‘Cadillac tax’ receives more than 60 votes in the Senate the legislation likely would increase the federal deficit in the long term.
