Keep the government out of the energy marketplace

Over almost the entire course of the Obama presidency, congressional conservatives battled with the administration over the subsidies that were such an important part of renewable energy policy. Critics labeled them distortive of the marketplace, said they had an adverse effect on energy consumption, and put the government in the position of picking winners and losers, something that most definitely was not its job.

Wider consequences of pulling out from Iran Deal

President Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly called 'the Iran Deal,' has gained us nothing - and could potentially cost us much on down the road.

Feds sanction slave labor, 21st century style

"With President Trump, you never know." Those were the exact words a U.S. Senate legislative aide said to me when we were talking about President Trump's immigration views. The specific topic at the time was deferred action for childhood arrivals, DACA, which candidate Trump had vowed to end on "Day 1" of his presidency, but didn't. In part because of President Trump's DACA dithering, the program and its future have since devolved into a political and legal quagmire.

Many, many more questions for Trump

Robert Mueller has many questions for the president. The New York Times released a list of 49 for which Donald Trump hopefully has answers that can assist the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 election. Although the New York City real estate developer may know nothing at all. A situation many folks say... chances are high.

Defenseless driving

My eldest and most expensive child recently reached one of those teen milestones that parents often consider with a combination of dread and hopefulness. No, I'm not referring to her first solo trip to a beauty salon, from which she might return either lovelier than ever, or looking like an adolescent version of Pennywise the clown. I'm talking about earning her learner license to operate our largest and most embarrassing family vehicle while at least one parent develops advanced gluteal clenching skills in the front passenger seat.

NAFTA 2.0 poses major threats to U.S. workers

The Mexican and Canadian governments are pushing the White House to step up the North American Free Trade Agreement's renegotiation pace and to conclude talks in May. Dubbed NAFTA 2.0, President Trump must proceed cautiously lest he open up the U.S. labor market to a new flood of employment-authorized visa holders.

Trump’s artful dodging

Sometimes it takes a year or more for a president's strengths to come into focus. In Donald Trump's case, it is now clear that he excels whenever he bestows upon us the honor of his absence.
