  • Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, but privatizing it won't help

    When established in 1935, Social Security made its first payments to Americans age 65. These first recipients never contributed and were paid from contributions made by younger Americans. Those Americans and successive generations believed their...
  • If the economy is so terrible, why is Obama winning?

    If the economy is so terrible, why is Obama winning?
    It's the economy, stupid — or maybe not. President Barack Obama, with the help of congressional allies, has taken key issues that should be dooming him and turned them to his advantage. Economists agree that growth is slow and jobs scarce...
  • Newt the demagogue

    Newt the demagogue
    Rick Perry's withdrawal from the presidential race and his endorsement of Newt Gingrich give a boost to a campaign that has been gaining momentum in the days before the South Carolina primary. Much of the analysis of this latest turn of events focuses...
  • The Bain of Romney's candidacy

    The Bain of Romney's candidacy
    Newark Mayor Cory Booker was wrong and President Barack Obama is right: Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital deserves closer scrutiny by voters. Whether a brief television ad accomplishes this is another matter. Presidential campaigns are seldom pretty....

  • Disgusted by GOP Know-nothings

    After watching the Republican presidential primary debates, I have an urge to move to another country if any of these clowns win. The unapologetic racism shown by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and the loud clapping by the people of South Carolina,...
  • Despite what Gov. Perry says, Turks are not terrorists

    As an American of Turkic descent, I am outraged Gov. Rick Perry's response to Brett Baier's Turcophobic and twisted question about Turkey ("Turkey rejects Perry comments," Jan. 18). Gov. Perry made a disastrous mistake by saying that Turkey is governed by...

    O'Malley under scrutiny as he serves in two roles
    On Monday, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is set to unfurl the most ambitious legislative agenda of his six years in office. By Thursday evening, he's scheduled to be 200 miles north in a Midtown Manhattan hotel, schmoozing with contributors to the...
  • Obama reversed economic slide

    Thank you, President Barack Obama, for saving American capitalism. When President Obama took office in January, 2009, the U.S. economy was on the brink of disaster. Under President George W. Bush, we were losing 700,000 jobs a month. Within a year,...
  • The problem with Romney capitalism

    Jay Hancock's column "Missing the point about Romney" (Jan. 22) should be required reading in every economics class, and of course for every voter. The issue is not that Mitt Romney is rich or even that he paid low tax rates on his riches. The real issue...
