    EDITORIAL: Cash for billionaires

    Democrats are fond of playing the class-warfare card in calling for tax hikes on "millionaires and billionaires." It's their way of pretending to stand for the little guy. The latest actions in the Senate, however, show they stand more with the ultra-wealthy than with middle-class taxpayers.

    TYRRELL: Nat Gas Act is no boondoggle

    Republicans in Congress seem to be having an identity crisis.

What is called the New Alternative Transportation to Give Americans Solutions Act - more simply put, the Nat Gas Act - came to Congress on April 6. It had bipartisan support.
