The political goal of handouts is another example of how Trump thinks he can throw around billions of dollars, seized by the government through taxes, to get whatever he wants.
Opposition to a recent energy law passed in Ohio has led to allegations of Chinese interference in American politics.
Democratic contenders for the presidential nomination are talking a lot about higher education, and it seems they want ‘free’ everything except for speech.

If CBO and House Budget are blameless, and everything about this budget change occurred in an above-board manner, they seem to have a funny way of going about proving their innocence.

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.
By throwing money at the problem of rising drug costs, Republican leaders’ ‘solution’ may end up raising them even faster.
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.
House leaders have concocted a plan that would use a budget gimmick that arguably violates the law to bail out Obamacare and provide taxpayer funding to plans that cover abortion.
