Tax reform: How the GOP can win big

The GOP needs the right kind of win, not a simple "check-the-box" win or a perfunctory "we-finally-did-something" win.

Lessons in the midst of Puerto Rico's tragedy

Puerto Rico's devastation in the wake Hurricane Maria has dominated the news over the past week. But a false narrative has crept in, crowding out the truth about what is actually unfolding.

AT&T and Time Warner want to merge.

DOJ must carefully review AT&T-Time Warner merger

For good reason, Americans are distrustful of the consolidation of power - and it matters little whether that concentration of power occurs in government or in the private sector.

Well, for one thing, The New York Times is crediting Mr. Trump's policies with having had a swift and significant effect on curbing illegal immigration.
