The Republicans Need To Make Up Their Minds

So Congress passes a relief bill and the President torpedoes it and the House Dems take him at his word and then, the House GOP kills the new current version of the relief bill. I think the President needs to call House GOP leadership and Senate Majority Leader McConnell and…

Where’s The COVID-19 Economic Relief Package?

Time To End Catch All Omnibus Bills? Sen. Mike Lee Is Seeing The Light.

I haven’t gone back to look for it, but I think I published an article a few years back suggesting that Congress and the various state legislatures pull back a bit and keep bills clean and lean. A spending bill should be a spending bill…a defense bill should be a…

Where’s the Author of: “Art of the Deal”?

I mean really…a president who ran on the premise that he was the expert on making deals…is totally missing in action during the negotiations for the next COVID-19 stimulus package.
