    Repeal and replace redux

    Just when you thought the Republican plot to destroy the Affordable Care Act had been thwarted, Senate Republicans are angling to swing the ax again.

    Dear Rushern, Why you gotta be that way?

    In their ep-ed, professors Alison Rios Millett McCartney and Elizabeth Matto call for higher education institutions to support the development of students into engaged and active citizens (“Teaching civic engagement,” Sept. 19).

    Why does Kamenetz want to be governor?

    I guess Kevin Kamenetz wanting to be governor has something to do with him filling more of his bank account with lifetime guaranteed money (“Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz joins Democratic race for governor,” Sept. 18). I am sure he will take all of his partners in crime with him to...

  • Pursuit of Obamacare repeal goes against Republican ideals

    Pursuit of Obamacare repeal goes against Republican ideals

    Republican elected officials and their supporters claim to be the party of “personal responsibility.” If that is truly the major plank of their ideological platform, why do they continue to try to repeal and replace Obamacare (“Repeal and replace redux,” Sept. 20)? After all, it mandates that people...

    Pitts: A simple traffic stop left Ayanna Cruver terrified

    Two weeks ago, a black woman driving alone in Princeton, La., was pulled over for no apparent reason. But she was not shot and killed. Or hauled from her car and body-slammed. Or even arrested for getting snippy. The officer explained that she was driving under the speed limit, something he said...

    Reich: Trump's infrastructure scam

    At a roundtable discussion with state transportation officials last Friday, Donald Trump said America's aging roads, bridges, railways and water systems were being "scoffed at and laughed" at. He vowed that they "will once again be the envy of the world." This seems to be a core theme for Mr. Trump:...

    Horsey: Trump's big crime: Ignoring Russia's assault on U.S. elections

    A deadly serious conclusion can be drawn from former FBI Director James Comey' s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee: Donald Trump cares more about himself than about the security of the United States.

    Rachel Marsden: Climate change is replacing war as the new pretext for imperialism

    Pitts: Where did Maher get the idea he could say that word?

    Here's a good rule of thumb for aspiring comics. Whenever you are compelled to say, "Hey, it was a joke," it probably wasn't. At the very least, it didn't land like one.
