Conservatives should demand more than the soft bigotry of low expectations that Republican lawmakers’ miserable track record on spending has led them to expect.
Shutdowns and bailouts are unsustainable for 18 months to two years. We need a new and better set of strategies, and we can’t put it off any further.
Instead of bailouts, Congress should create new safety net programs that largely recover the cash relief from the same households and businesses that receive taxpayer support.
President Trump’s block-grant plan is a bold call to congressional Republicans to not squander their next opportunity to relieve U.S. education of bureaucracy like they did in his first two years of office.
The current definition of a bipartisan ‘deal’ occurs when both sides get what they want—at the expense of taxpayers, or more specifically future generations.
Jerome Powell, the chairman of the Federal Reserve, issued an ominous warning to lawmakers Wednesday that the federal budget is on ‘an unsustainable path.’
President Trump’s proposed budget eliminates funding for the NEA, and apparently not wanting taxpayers to bankroll endeavors beyond the government’s constitutional scope demonstrates his lack of humanity.

In some cases, living paycheck-to-paycheck is unavoidable. In other cases, people need to wake up and take a long look at their foolish finance habits.
Republicans may criticize Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for proposing new spending, but the difference between her and most GOP members represents one of degree rather than of kind.
We spend gobs of money on our military, so what do we get in return? A lot of foreign intervention that has little clear benefit to Americans.
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?
