When it comes to progress on funding, Congress fell short… again

When the opportunity arose, Congress missed its chance to work on fully funding the government before the end of the fiscal year on September 30. Time is running out and the baby steps Congress is taking to pass funding bills may not be enough to fully fund the government. Sen.

This is a huge step forward, but we still didn’t get it all done. The Senate has completed and passed nine of the 12 appropriations bills in three tranches. Both chambers have ...

At best, moderates’ proposals would have put a Band-Aid on the ObamaCare bullet wound. Without ...

Once Donald Trump had secured the delegates and become the nominee, there was still some division among the conservative base. However, many Republicans and conservatives voted for Donald Trump in November of that year for one reason: the Supreme Court. President Trump released a list, a.k.a. “The List,” of potential Supreme Court nominees that he pledged to choose from if elected president.
