The Death of American Coal

There was a time in America — and it wasn’t even so long ago — that liberals actually cared about working class people. They may have been misguided in many of their policy solutions — i.e., raising the minimum wage — but at least their heart was in the right place.

Wisconsinites Are Calling on Lawmakers to Support Justice Reform

BY Adam Brandon and Chris Ahmuth

As Wisconsin residents begin to engage in this election, Republicans and Democrats are split on many pressing issues — like how to handle the economy, what education policies to pursue, or what national security policies will keep us safe. But there’s one issue many voters are united on: criminal justice reform.

Privatize Planetary Pursuits

“That’s one small step for man, one giant exploitation of taxpayers.” That’s what Neil Armstrong should have said when he stepped foot on the Moon in 1969.

Nebraska Asset Forfeiture Reform Passes through Legislature, Headed to the Governor’s Desk

The people of Nebraska have spoken, and they are calling for a change in the state’s asset forfeiture laws. Earlier this week, LB 1106 passed through the state’s unicameral legislature with a vote of 38 to 8, with 3 abstentions. The bill is now heading to the Governor Pete Ricketts' desk, waiting for a signature to become law.

In Push to Fight Opioid Epidemic, McCarthy Should Remember Cantor's 'Make Life Work' Disaster

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) recently laid out his plans for the House "to address the nationwide opioid epidemic." The majority leader is to be commended for announcing in a transparent and articulate manner his blueprint for this problem. This effort at dialogue and the openness it demonstrates is welcome and courageous. While the majority leader's goals for addressing opioid issue are laudable, it is vital that McCarthy not repeat former Majority Leader Eric Cantor's (R-Va.) disastrous and constitutionally dubious "Make Life Work" initiative in the process. That effort pushed progressive legislative proposals in an effort to soften the image of Republicans in the House. The result was that it blurred the distinction between Republicans and Democrats to the frustration of the former and the delight of the latter. McCarthy should take care not to head down the same path with his endeavor.

Department of Education Harasses Teachers Over Common Core Testing

Common Core Fails, but Education Department Tries to Silence Critics This month we are in the middle of what the Department of Education educrats have labelled as “Testing Season.” That’s right. It’s not duck season, it’s not rabbit season, it’s Testing Season. As hundreds of thousands of students opt out of Common Core testing, teachers are weighing the professional risks of speaking out against this testing. Instead of fixing the problems with Common Core and its myriad of regulations, Education Department bureaucrats have resorted to shooting the messengers – our nation’s teachers. Perhaps Testing Season should be renamed Hunting Season.

Stop Over-criminalizing and Over-federalizing Criminal Law

It’s that time again. Another day, another we-need-to-add-multiple-amendments-before-reauthorizing-a-bill moment. Currently, the Senate is moving to pass the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2016 (S.2658), which would grant the FAA funding through September 2017. During this process, however, senators like Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) have taken the opportunity to squeeze in additional measures by way of amendments as they rush the bill to the floor.
