    Balanced budget amendment: Here's why it's a bad idea
    The U.S. government teeters on the brink of an unprecedented, self-inflicted debt default, and the House of Representatives can't seem to keep its eye on the ball. After the House debated the fate of incandescent lightbulbs last week, it approved on...
  • Debt limit: Democrats have painted themselves into a corner

    When Rep. Paul Ryan presented his plan to eliminate the budget deficit, Democrats jumped on him and accused him of trying to put America's debt on the backs of seniors. It seemed to work in the special election in New York, and they saw that as a rallying...

  • Protect senior programs

    Protect senior programs
    It's no accident there's been a scarcity of meaningful conversation about what our presidential candidates have planned for Social Security and Medicare. Even in retiree-heavy Florida, details about the candidates' Social Security and Medicare proposals...

    The state Senate voted Thursday to significantly raise taxes on Marylanders earning half a million dollars or more — prompting complaints that liberals were bent on launching class warfare in the state. The Senate's vote to adopt what is being...

    Maryland's Van Hollen at center of deficit fight
    For Rep. Chris Van Hollen, brokering a bipartisan deal to trim the federal deficit is about more than dodging draconian across-the-board cuts or protecting a fragile economic recovery. It's also about proving that a bitterly divided Congress can still...
  • Paul Ryan's song and dance

    Paul Ryan's song and dance
    If Republicans are getting ready to turn an election-year corner, settle on a presidential nominee and begin broadening their political message beyond the reality-challenged segments of the GOP base, Rep. Paul Ryan clearly didn't get the message. The $3....
  • Ryan budget is the only serious deficit reduction plan

    Your editorial on Rep. Paul Ryan's budget proposal demonstrates why it will be so difficult to restore fiscal discipline to the federal budget ("Ryan's song and dance," March 21). Unfortunately, you have picked the wrong culprit. While criticizing...
