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.

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.
The idea that we must rob from Peter to pay Paul has led to historic levels of taxation in this country and helped stifle economic growth for decades.
President Trump has proposed cutting the State Department’s budget. Its mission will prevail. The power of cultural diplomacy comes from people, not government funding.
Like many visa programs we have, the immigrant investor program started as a good idea but evolved into something very different.
Breaking down what happened with these two Trump legislative successes—Obamacare revision and the budget omnibus—illustrates what we should expect from the coming years.
Our defense budget is a sieve for congressional pet projects, special interest contracts, and social engineering programs. Pumping more fuel into the tank is little use if you don’t patch the holes.
The people screaming about PBS, the NEA, and the NEH are the same people who helped tear down the arts in favor of the ‘counterculture.’
Republicans plan to cancel aspects of Obamacare that affect the federal budget, but if they leave the regulatory scheme intact, the result will be disaster.
