Senate Republicans have the fix to end these shutdowns permanently

BY Jason Pye

The current federal government shutdown, which is the longest in United States history, was completely avoidable. The appropriations process in Congress is so incredibly broken, making it impossible for lawmakers in either chamber to return to regular order to get spending bills done on time before the end of the fiscal year. This stark inability of Congress to perform one of its most basic functions is a result of years of governing by crisis, something both Republican and Democratic leaders are guilty.

Life outside the Beltway goes on while Trump and Pelosi quarrel over shutdown

BY Adam Brandon

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is desperate to win over the radical-left wing of the Democratic Party. With arms crossed and heels dug into the ground, she has lowered the bar of negotiation to something you’d expect from a child on a playground, not someone third in line to the presidency.

FreedomWorks Efforts Critical to Defeating Virginia Minimum Wage Hike in State Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to S.B. 1200, a bill that sought to institute a $15 minimum wage, FreedomWorks activists drove nearly 3,000 messages to Virginia state legislators urging them to oppose the bill. The bill was supported by a variety of Virginia progressive organizations and labor unions. On Sunday, the bill was defeated by a vote of 19-21 on the senate floor. Two senators who had previously voted the bill out of committee opposed the bill in the final floor vote.

Kevin McCarthy Might Have a Bright Future as MSNBC's Token Republican

BY Adam Brandon

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy obviously didn’t get the message from his establishment predecessor John Boehner, who routinely punished House conservatives for dissent, when he unceremoniously booted conservative Freedom Caucus Republican Rep. Jody Hice from the House Armed Services Committee.

Time for a Shutdown Reality Check

BY Adam Brandon

Mark Twain once commented “the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” This quote should come to mind whenever we hear the apocalyptic forecasts associated with the partial shutdown. Here’s a reality check: the partial shutdown is not nearly as bad as Democrats and pundits are making it out to be. The electricity and water still work and our roads are still paved. From what I can tell, my neighborhood doesn’t look like a scene out of “Mad Max.”

Reinstating SALT Would Strike At the Heart of the 10th Amendment

BY Daniel Savickas

As the 116th Congress gets settled in, Nancy Pelosi and fellow House Democrats are adjusting to their new reality of being back in the majority. With that comes an assessment of their policy priorities for the next two years. Among other initiatives, one of their targets appears to be the reinstatement of the state and local tax (SALT) deductions that were eliminated in the tax cuts package from 2017. A bill has already been introduced by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.).

The 'Green New Deal' Is the Worst Thing of All for Green

BY Jason Pye

Democrats in Congress who claim an environmental conscience are pushing a so-called “Green New Deal” meant to fundamentally shift America’s focus to renewable energy sources in the hope of addressing anthropogenic climate change. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has become the face of the effort, with calls for a top income tax rate of 70 percent to finance the program. The excessive intervention Rep. Ocasio-Cortez calls for would be crippling for the environment, simply because it would slow the economic growth that makes green-energy advances possible to begin with.
