    Democrats riding high for now, but beware a midterm crash
    My columnist and television pundit gigs have me thinking a great deal about the relative positions of the two parties heading into the midterm election cycle. For starters, the Democrats are ahead. Last November's elections gave the president a...
  • Sequester will affect financial aid for the coming academic year

    Sequester will affect financial aid for the coming academic year
    The across-the-board federal spending cuts known as the sequester come at a bad time for Maryland colleges. Many usually send out financial award letters this month, but they still don't have all the details on how much federal funding they will...
  • As sequestration starts, concern in Howard builds

    Howard County business officials still are learning how the federal sequestration will affect the county's economy, but once Congress missed its March 1 deadline for an agreement avoiding the cuts, one local business already was feeling the effects....
  • Sequestration was Obama's idea; now he doesn't like it?

    Sequestration was Obama's idea; now he doesn't like it?
    I was dismayed by your recent, misleading article on the Republican's responsibility for the budget sequester (The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Jack Lew, the White House chief of staff and budget director, set up the sequester in 2011, and Rob Nabors,...

    Dow is up: Happy days here again?
    Economist John Kenneth Galbraith once observed that there are two kinds of market forecasters, those who don't know and those who don't know they don't know. That is well illustrated by the current disconnect between Wall Street and Main Street, as the...
  • Snowquester, sequester both inspire a yawn

    Snowquester, sequester both inspire a yawn
    It is fitting that we referred to last week's storm-that-wasn't as a snowquestration. And not just because it was kind of embarrassing and shut the government down. No, the meteorological turbulence — such as it was — was like the economic...
  • Sequestration is not the solution

    Sequestration is not the solution
    If Congress fails to deal with the looming threat of sequestration, March 1 will be devastating for millions of Americans. That will be the day that automatic, across-the-board spending cuts begin to take effect — cutting $1.2 trillion from...
  • Blame game rages on over looming sequester

    Blame game rages on over looming sequester
    We are just days away from a cataclysm of biblical proportions. The cuts foretold in the Budget Control Act of 2011 are young as far as prophecies go, but apparently they are every bit as terrifying as rivers of blood and plagues of locusts. Any day now...
  • Wrong to blame GOP for showdown

    Wrong to blame GOP for showdown
    What a joke your editorial regarding pending federal budget cuts is ("The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Do you not research information anymore, or do you just call up some liberal Democrats for advice? Maybe you're just blind and believe anything that...
  • Sequester is not just GOP's fault

    Sequester is not just GOP's fault
    It is nice to know that The Sun has received the White House talking points on the sequester and written an editorial based on them, as I expect nothing less from you ("The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Blame can be attached to both sides. The Democrats and...
  • Sequestration puts Howard business community 'on edge'

    With less than a week to go until the federal government's March 1 deadline to reach an agreement avoiding a set of spending cuts known as sequestration, Howard County's business community is in the dark about its potential impact. Pam Klahr,...

    White House warns of education, defense cuts in Md.
    WASHINGTON -- Maryland would lose $14.4 million in federal education funding, roughly 46,000 Department of Defense employees would be furloughed and 2,050 fewer children would receive vaccines if looming across-the-board spending cuts are allowed to...
