  • 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,...
  • County congressional candidates face off at forum

    One night before President Barack Obama, a Democrat, and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney were to hold their first presidential debate, Howard County's congressional representatives and their challengers had the opportunity to face off. The...
  • Sequestration: How we got here

    Sequestration: How we got here
    Sequestration is an extremely crude way to cut approximately 2 percent of federal spending. It is analogous to forcing a grossly obese person to lose a few pounds by not feeding him for a few days. On this issue, at least, it appears that Republicans...
  • Say yes to sequestration

    Say yes to sequestration
    Sen. Ben Cardin's fear-mongering article about the threat of budget sequestration was appalling ("No to sequestration," Feb. 20). He of all people should know that the sequester was proposed by President Obama himself to Senate Majority Leader Harry...
  • It's the 'Obama sequester'

    It's the 'Obama sequester'
    I guess many of The Sun's readers are of the "low information" type who are not exposed to counter-points that would rebut the mantra of the left ("The GOP sequester," Feb. 22). Let me explain. Never in the history of this great nation have we gone four...
  • Obama was sizzle, not steak, and now the sizzle is gone

    Obama was sizzle, not steak, and now the sizzle is gone
    It was the Puss in Boots eyes. If you've seen the "Shrek" movies or the spin-off cartoon starring the storybook cat voiced by Antonio Banderas, you know what I'm talking about. Whenever Puss in Boots really needs something from someone, he flashes...
  • Powerful poison Ricin found in letter sent to U.S. senator

    Powerful poison Ricin found in letter sent to U.S. senator
    WASHINGTON -- An envelope laced with the lethal poison Ricin and addressed to a U.S. senator was found at a Maryland mail processing facility, officials said Tuesday. The envelope, intended for the office of Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), was discovered...
  • Filibuster reform can't wait

    Filibuster reform can't wait
    Two months after American voters made it clear they want effective government — and two years before the U.S. Senate's next opportunity to reform its broken rules — that "do nothing" chamber appears poised to fix its filibuster. In its present...
  • Missed chance to fix the filibuster

     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...
  • A weak Boehner is bad for the GOP, Obama and America

    A weak Boehner is bad for the GOP, Obama and America
    Only a few days into the new year, the Grand Old Party has a huge political hangover from the events that rang in the tidings of 2013. First came the escape from the fiscal cliff that saw its speaker of the House, John Boehner, embarrassed by his flock'...
  • Bad luck for Mitch McConnell: Ashley Judd bows out

    Bad luck for Mitch McConnell: Ashley Judd bows out
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will not be facing a challenge from actress Ashley Judd when he runs for re-election next year. Though he may be happy to have avoided the physical comparison -- she, after all, played Marilyn Monroe in a movie,...
  • Obama's economic policies will destroy the country

    Obama's economic policies will destroy the country
    Only among The Sun's editors and the Democratic Party is the 3.5 percent annual growth in the federal budget proposed by Republican Rep. Paul Ryan considered "egregious" ("Unbalanced budgeting," March 14). Representative Ryan's plan to spend "only"...
