NFL Players Have Seemingly Forgotten That Injustice Is a Relative Concept

The number is thankfully in decline, but as of 2010 over 2 billion of the world’s inhabitants had never flipped on a light switch. In the U.S. we understandably hurt for hurricane-ravaged Puerto Ricans who may go without electricity for months, and our compassion is magnified by the happy truth that most of us have never lived without it ourselves.

Tax Reform Must be Permanent to Produce Long-Term Growth

President Trump outlined a bold set of principles for fundamental, pro-growth tax reform in Springfield, Missouri. Emphasizing simplicity, international competitiveness, and relief for the middle class, he stressed the need for Congress to seize what is a generational opportunity.

Ignore The Endless Talk Of Doom, Budget Deficits Really Don't Matter

U.S. federal debt added up to $908 billion in 1980, but today, nearly 40 years later, the number comes in around $20 trillion. That the amount owed by U.S. taxpayers has soared over twenty-fold would, in a static world, correlate with a huge increase in borrowing costs for the U.S. Treasury.

Federal Flood Insurance Did Not Magnify Harvey and Irma

Back in 2008, and in the aftermath of the troubles within the financial sector, a popular theme emerged about banks “privatizing profits while socializing risk.” To believe their critics then and now, banks swing for the proverbial fences with an eye on big bonuses, but if their careless ways lead to insolvency, their errors are cushioned by taxpayer bailouts. It was and is a neat theory, but not a very realistic one.

What Teachers Get Wrong on School Choice

As education reform has become more than a priority under Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, the conflict between supporters and opponents of school choice, designed to place more educational choice back into the hand of families, continues to escalate. While the debate itself revolves around making the best decision for the educational success of students, the opposition to school choice comes primarily from teachers unions like the NEA (National Education Association) and the very vocal AFT (American Federation of Teachers), which have each donated over $700 million to exclusively Democrat candidates, issue campaigns, and lobbying efforts.

3 Economic Realities the Bernie Plan Ignores

The first two laws that comrade Sanders would repeal if given the chance? The law of scarcity and the law of supply and demand. Bernie ignores these basic concepts. Humanity has limited resources leaving us with the problem of distributing those resources among individuals. The government can try - and fail - to distribute those resources for us or the market can distribute do it based on the choices individuals make. Every government that has tried to distribute resources for the people has failed - e.g., the Soviet Union and Venezuela. Every government that has allowed the market to distribute resource based on the choices of individuals has thrived - e.g., Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong. A few basic inferences can be made using Bernie's two least favorite laws that would help him better understand the consequences of a single-payer healthcare system.

The VA: The Government's Ineffective Healthcare System

The United States is searching for a solution to the healthcare fiasco in Washington, D.C. The American people were promised a full repeal of ObamaCare. However, once in power, the members of Congress threw their central campaign promise to the wayside. The Republican leadership’s inability to come to a consensus is troubling and the deviation from the full repeal is appalling. Republican leadership in the House and Senate actually increased support for ObamaCare among senators and representatives.
