Distancing from Trump? Some Republicans step up critiques

For more than three years, President Donald Trump instilled such fear in the Republican Party's leaders that most kept criticism of his turbulent leadership or inconsistent politics to themselves.

Chris Christie, a Trump friend an...

Modern Monetary Theory risks massive inflation

In response to the coronavirus, the federal government has added almost $3 trillion to the national debt just in the last few months. The federal budget is astronomically out of balance. No one in Washington seems to care. The deficit hawk is not just an endangered species; the bird is extinct. During the presidential primaries, Sen. Bernie Sanders espoused massive increases in government spending. When asked who would pay for it, he replied that modern monetary theory (“MMT”) proved that no one...

Opinion: Why Democrats need to prioritize statehood for DC and Puerto Rico

The US House of Representatives passed a bill in favor of DC statehood Friday. Both the Republican Party and the President oppose statehood for the nation's capital, so the bill will almost certainly go nowhere in the Senate — for now. But should Joe Biden win the presidency and bring with him majorities in the House and Senate, he should make statehood for DC — and for Puerto Rico — a priority for his first 100 days in office.

Trump’s Raving About Carnage. Biden’s Channeling Reagan.

The Republican Party’s latest casualty is optimism about America’s future. The most Reaganesque presidential candidate in 2020 is the Democrat, Joe Biden.Once upon a time, that would have been the ballgame. Until recently, the most optimistic candidate almost always won the presidency. Still, for Democrats, optimism might be the key to the 2020 election.That’s because the so-called “Trump-Biden voter” could be the most vital bloc of swing voters in November—and people yearning for a “shining Cit...
