Because of the coronavirus bailouts, the federal deficit is now expected to be $3.7 trillion for fiscal year 2020. This is a huge drag on Americans’ earnings and retirement security.
In the face of asymmetric intolerance, such as communist China’s bully tactics, corporations rationally take the path of least resistance and slide into corporate leftism.
Behind the scenes, congressional Democrats’ main priority is bringing back a big tax loophole for rich people in high-tax blue states: their donors.
What to do about the U.S. economy in the wake of the Wuhan virus? The answer requires a mix of both short-term suppression and then long-term mitigation.
The economic implications of the virus are most concerning of all, and require a level of seriousness from the White House that was missing for much of last week.
The Trump administration wants more funding for states’ child care welfare, but the program is prone to fraud, waste, and abuse, and it carries massive marriage penalties.
Treating child predation like a disease has put too much focus on rehabilitating criminals and too little focus on keeping children safe.
The City Pages hit, and Planned Parenthood not liking the billboards, is not just about a disagreement over a controversial issue. It’s about money.
Instead of playing politics, Washington must realize that risking the lives of American forces in a gamble to reduce Iranian influence in Iraq isn’t worth it and may be self-defeating.
Michael Bloomberg’s new plan is a perfect example of the failure of center-left policy concoctions meant to help black Americans, invariably cooked up by rich liberals.
Trump is uniquely gifted to bring black America back into the GOP. Come spring 2020, he should go to Detroit and aim for winning back black voters.
D.C.’s hysteria is dangerous. The strike wasn’t necessarily wrong, but the president must tread carefully. Too much of D.C. wants him not to.
The stock market and wages are important means to an end. But though the market is booming now, conservatism doesn’t fail if it drops.
There’s a sense that the bureaucrats who command the federal leviathan work for themselves, not for the country at large. That wasn’t true of Paul Volcker.
Given his dismal track record, it’s stunning that Christopher Steele has again surfaced, just before the U.K. election that will decide Brexit, to claim that Johnson is a Russian asset.
Right now, the interests of the GOP donor class are being put above the interests of the American people, and easily 90 percent of GOP voters. It’s beyond time for that to change.
As long as the Pentagon is a sacred cow, the United States will never balance its budget. If our military stops being the world police, it can have all the ships and planes it needs to keep us and the troops safe.
Widening inequality and slowing social mobility really is a problem in America, and government policies championed by the elite have exacerbated this inequality.
Matt Bevin’s loss doesn’t have anything to do with Trump, and it’s not about ‘conservatives’ versus ‘moderates,’ either. Conservatism embodies middle-class and working-class values. Why not embrace that?
From the media to government bureaucrats to Epstein himself, powerful people are getting away with execrable behavior. It’s time to investigate the Epstein-media-intelligence agency nexus.
