Rep. Martha McSally: Hard working families like yours deserve a tax break

By Rep. Martha McSally Families today are working more but can afford less.  Throughout the United States, the cost of college, health care and housing have each outpaced wage growth in the past decade. Sixty-three percent of Americans don’t have enough to cover a $500 emergency. When they become parents, they are faced with a new price […]

Joe Guzzardi: Meanwhile, down on the southwest border…

By Joe Guzzardi President Trump returned from a five-nation Asia tour, claiming “tremendous success” and declaring that “America is back.” But while President Trump was nation-hopping, troubling news surfaced on immigration, his signature issue.

David S. D’Amato: The government is not your mom and can’t force you to share

By David S. D’Amato Humankind’s propensity to act selfishly is taken to be an important problem in political theory: an impediment, perhaps, to the utopian dreams of political philosophers.

Eric Peters: A Talent for deception

Eric Peters: A Talent for deception

By Eric Peters When establishment Republicans like Jim Talent pat the president on the back, he might want to check for a knife.

Joe Guzzardi: No Harvard admissions lottery, why should U.S. have one for citizenship?

Joe Guzzardi: No Harvard admissions lottery, why should U.S. have one for citizenship?

By Joe Guzzardi Nothing can compensate for the eight New York murders Uzbek national Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov perpetrated or the pain and suffering the victims’ families will forever endure. But one positive shift has occurred. The foolish, pointless Diversity Visa, previously unknown to 99 percent of Americans, has been the focus of numerous print and […]
