     Missed chance to fix the filibuster
    The best chance to get the U.S. Senate to do its job is not to withhold pay (although withholding campaign contributions might have done the trick) but to reform the Senate rules so that filibusters aren't used so routinely to gum up the works. Majority...

    When Maryland National Guard Capt. Cara Kupcho first enlisted in the military 18 years ago, she wanted to drive a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, a 30-ton, armor-busting tank. "I like things that go boom," she explained Thursday. "I like tanks." But as a...
  • Letter: State lawmakers should follow President Obama's lead on gun safety

    I don't think I've ever been so proud of an American president as I was watching President Obama speak so movingly about the victims of recent gun violence and the executive actions he was going to take to curb the country's epidemic of gun violence. What...
  • Obama must recognize al-Qaida threat

    Obama must recognize al-Qaida threat
    After Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's pathetic responses to the Senate and House ("Clinton grilled on Benghazi," Jan. 24), let's be honest that we don't have al-Qaida on the run (as President Barack Obama claimed during the recent campaign; although,...

  • Let's go with GOP budget

    Let's go with GOP budget
    Comparing the House and Senate federal budget proposals should make the decision a no-brainer. Do we want a $7 billion surplus per the Republican budget or a $566 billion deficit per the Democratic budget? This would be simple except that the American...
  • Roe v. Wade at 40

    Roe v. Wade at 40
    At last week's signing of "executive actions" designed to combat gun violence in America, President Barack Obama, flanked by schoolchildren, said, "when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now." There's no doubt that...
  • Gun control a hot issue for O'Malley, Obama

    Gun control a hot issue for O'Malley, Obama
    I am writing to share my perspective on the rush by President Barack Obama and Gov. Martin O'Malley to enact more gun control legislation ("Gun control at front of O'Malley's legislative list," Jan. 19). I feel that both are using the school shooting...
  • Republicans block Obama's agenda at their peril

    Republicans block Obama's agenda at their peril
    President Barack Obama's inaugural speech was inspiring and brilliantly focuses on the correct path the nation must take in the future ("Obama 2.0," Jan. 22). The president spelled out a progressive agenda that I and millions of American citizens voted...
  • Hillary Clinton leaves D.C. well-positioned for 2016

    Hillary Clinton leaves D.C. well-positioned for 2016
    Many Republicans and some conservative Democratic legislators in Annapolis believe the Maryland General Assembly has become a proving ground for the presidential ambitions of Gov. Martin O'Malley. The governor's critics believe that by pushing issues...
  • The flimsy case against Thomas Perez

    The flimsy case against Thomas Perez
    Just as they did when Thomas E. Perez was nominated to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Republicans are seeking to hold up his confirmation to head the U.S. Department of Labor, using any excuse they can think up, no matter how flimsy....
  • Women in combat a bad idea

    Women in combat a bad idea
    Unfortunately, a lot of military decisions are being made by people who have never served in combat or have had limited service ("Military ceiling lifted," Jan. 25). President Barack Obama never served in the military, and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta...
