  • 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...
  • Obama should swallow his pride, negotiate with House GOP

     Obama should swallow his pride, negotiate with House GOP
    The Sun continues the steady stream of Democratic Party talking points by repeatedly asserting that the current government shutdown is entirely the fault of extreme Republicans bent on creating chaos ("Fund government, then negotiate," Oct. 7). One of...
  • 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...
  • Andy Harris could always refuse subsidized insurance

    Andy Harris could always refuse subsidized insurance
    For the sake of ideological balance — and for entertainment purposes — you have to hand it to Andy Harris. He's the lone Maryland Republican in Congress, an extreme conservative counterweight to the moderate-to-liberal Democrats who hold the...

     GOP is out of touch on the shutdown, debt ceiling
    Republican Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul for too long have lead the GOP into believing their claim that the debt ceiling and government shutdown issues won't cause an economic calamity ("Ted Cruz wins by losing," Sept. 27). All well and good senators,...

  • Will Americans really become addicted to Obamacare?

    Will Americans really become addicted to Obamacare?
    For all the acrimony in Washington over Obamacare, there's an intriguing consensus around one issue: the ratchet effect. Neither side uses the term, but both the right and left treat it as an article of faith. The term was coined by the libertarian...
  • It's morning again in Maryland

    It's morning again in Maryland
    Lost amid our gloom and doom over the tea partiers' nonsensical, reactionary effort to bring down effective government in Washington is this happy local counterweight: 2013 has been an incredibly fruitful year for the forces of forward-thinking government...
  • Lawmakers must put country above party

     Lawmakers must put country above party
    I really enjoyed R. Reynolds' letter this morning, though I believe he only got it half right ("The curtain is poised to fall on the American republic," Oct. 8). This country takes in $2.7 trillion annually but we are spending $3.7 trillion. It is...
  • Conservatives must stand up against Obamacare

     Conservatives must stand up against Obamacare
    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Barack Obama are holding the American people hostage as they try to force their big government agenda on our great country ("Obama and Republicans struggle to break fiscal impasse," Oct. 11). We...
  • Grow up, Congress

    Grow up, Congress
    With the government shutdown entering its third week and Thursday's deadline to raise the debt ceiling — and hold off potential default — now looming, negotiations appear to have entered a new phase of victim-hood. Apparently, it's not...
  • GOP, tea party are the only adults in the room

    GOP, tea party are the only adults in the room
    If congressional negotiators fail to raise the debt ceiling and reopen the government, voters will blame House Republicans, but it's the president and fellow Democrats that are behaving like teenagers by wanting to spend irresponsibly. Studies by the...
