For Assisting The Jan. 6 Witch Hunt, Cheney And Kinzinger Should Be Booted Out Of The GOP

Most Americans recoil from calls for political purges. Despite that, Republicans are contemplating just such a measure over the conduct of two members of their House caucus. The participation of Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger in the Jan. 6 Committee convened by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has led many conservatives, both in the House and out of it, to…

It’s Not The Filibuster’s Fault We Have ‘Gridlock,’ It’s The Senators’

Official Washington’s conventional wisdom about the Senate filibuster is a fairy tale. It is utterly unmoored from the choices being made by individual senators, party caucuses, and the body as a whole. Every person who has ever told you that the mean, nasty, outdated legislative filibuster is the source of Senate gridlock and the obstacle to common-sense legislating in Congress…

No, Sane Senate Republicans Are Not To Blame For Another Near Federal Shutdown

A simple thought experiment: If you leave at 7:55 p.m. for a concert all the way across town that starts at 8 p.m., do you have any right to blame the traffic for making you late? That analogy applies to the United States Senate these days. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, tried on Thursday to blame conservative Republicans for…

How House Democrats’ Reconciliation Bill Could Face The Senate Shredder

On November 2, five House Democrats—enough to block the passage of the spending spree that the party hopes to enact via the budget reconciliation process—wrote to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, urging her “to only bring a bill to the floor for which we have a strong level of confidence…will be ruled in order by the Senate parliamentarian and earn…

Democrats’ $3.5T Spending Bill Is Even More Crooked Than Obamacare

How quickly Democrats forget. A dozen years ago,  President Barack Obama faced strong and justified criticism for backtracking on his promise, made numerous times during the 2008 presidential campaign, to televise health-care negotiations on C-SPAN: [embedded content] By this year’s standards, however, the process that led to Obamacare—the law that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, said we had to pass…

Only An Idiot Would Believe Congress’s Spending Spree Will Cost ‘Zero’

In recent weeks, the Biden administration has begun asserting that the spending bill independent experts believe could cost $5.5 trillion over a decade will actually cost “zero.” Putting aside the way these patronizing assertions insult voters’ intelligence, does the kernel of the Biden claim—that the Democratic reconciliation proposals will be fully paid-for—stand up to scrutiny? In a word, hardly. Multiple…

A Republican Vote To Raise The Debt Limit Is A Vote For Democrats’ $3.5 Trillion Spending Spree

According to conventional wisdom, congressional Republicans have no power to block Democrat plans to ram through $3.5 trillion in tax increases and new spending on welfare programs (among other things). Democrat lawmakers hope to use the budget reconciliation process to pass the legislation through the Senate with 51 votes — all Democrats plus Vice President Kamala Harris. Under this theory,…

There’s A Reason DC Democrats Are Always Winning, Even When They Lose

Washington Republicans are excited for the 2022 elections, and they have reason to be — they’re going to do well. They’re heavy favorites to take back the House of Representatives; and despite a very bad Senate map, it’s a coin flip they’ll retake that too. None of this is too shocking: First-term presidents usually face a backlash, and often it’s…

Why Congress Should Demand An Audit Of Biden’s Taxes

A bipartisan Senate working group has proposed paying for new infrastructure spending in part by providing $40 billion to the Internal Revenue Service. But before Congress even considers the legislation, conservatives rightly skeptical of doling out new funds and authority to the IRS should pose one simple request to the Biden administration: You want to audit other “rich” people?
