These bilateral agreements keep governments from subsidizing airlines and allow for a fair and free trade in international air travel. Trump has already been successful in convincing Qatar to change course and honor our Open Skies agreements, something that former ...

They have done it while refusing to acknowledge the impact that they have on every single taxpayer in the nation. The IRS must be held to a higher standard and President Trump can change this —  with or without Congress. The Hill has the details: In a virtual case study of the law of unintended consequences — the one law Congress cannot repeal — James Valvo’s research documents show, over time, the IRS has amassed unto itself more and more power to ...
