  • Make a deal where everyone wins

     Make a deal where everyone wins
    It is hard to believe that the Democrats and Republicans can't come up with the following as a way to break the logjam in D.C.: The GOP agrees to this year's budget, the updated debt ceiling and the immigration reform law passed by the U.S. Senate. In...

    Shutdown costs feds $2 billion in lost productivity, report finds
    WASHINGTON -- The 16-day shutdown of the federal government last month resulted in $2 billion in lost productivity and, at its peak, left 40 percent of the federal workforce furloughed, according to a report released by the Obama administration Thursday....
  • Sun dominated by leftist views

     Sun dominated by leftist views
    In reading The Sun's editorial pages on Oct. 4, I couldn't help but think that the editorial board, in bowing to the extreme left wing base, has been shoveling a huge amount of "stuff." Take, for example, the editorial, "Congress: Do your job," where...
  • Few signs of compromise

    Few signs of compromise
    While it's not uncommon for any negotiation to begin with a degree of doubt, it's difficult to imagine any launched with as little optimism as accompanied the opening last week of federal budget talks. That President Barack Obama could possibly still be...

    Looking Out: Harry Reid moving Employment Non-Discrimination Act toward a vote
    Happy Halloween! Let's talk about something truly terrifying: LGBT discrimination in hiring. Maybe not as viscerally scream-inducing as ghouls or witches, I know. But after progress on the Employment Non-Discrimination Act got halted by a government...
  • Acting responsibly is not a 'surrender'

    Unconditional surrender. That's what House Speaker John Boehner has called it if Republicans go along with President Barack Obama's position that the government shutdown must be halted and the debt limit raised before negotiations over their grievances...
  • Let people, not politicians, write the laws

     Let people, not politicians, write the laws
    A family that takes a second and a third mortgage may be in danger of losing the family home. A nation raising its debt ceiling again and again is in danger of losing its future. I think that many people are willing to do something, but what can we do?...
  • Thanks to Congress, this future groom suddenly has time to do more wedding planning

    Thanks to Congress, this future groom suddenly has time to do more wedding planning
    Thanks to Congress, I have more free time than usual.  I am a federal employee, but my job does not entail the protection of life or property.  I am “nonessential.”  So, while the Congress and president are split on how to fund government...
  • The Democrats' hidden agenda

     The Democrats' hidden agenda
    John F. Kennedy rightly said "the human mind is our fundamental resource." It takes people with right thinking in government to eliminate deficits, reduce the national debt and restore confidence in leadership. I salute Maryland Rep. Andy Harris for his...
  • The way out for John Boehner

    House Speaker Boehner, so the thinking goes, is held hostage by the tea party members of his caucus. They, plus the more moderate House Republicans who fear tea-party primary challenges, form an effective majority of the Republican Caucus (the "majority...
  • Yes, Republicans, a default would be a really big deal

    Yes, Republicans, a default would be a really big deal
    The latest out of the extreme conservative wing of the Republican party is that a failure of the U.S. government to take the steps necessary to pay all its bills on time would be no biggie. They say we could juggle things around and avoid missing any...
  • A modest debt solution: Print more money

     A modest debt solution: Print more money
    Right now there is a controversy in Washington D.C. as to whether or not we should raise the debt ceiling. I really don't see any problem with raising the existing debt ceiling, since it only stands at a modest $17 trillion, and that should be easy to pay...
