House Speaker Paul Ryan doubled down earlier this month on getting tax reform done by the end of the year. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month He said he hopes to put a tax bill on President Donald Trump’s desk by “deer season”—Nov. 18 for those who aren’t familiar. But if the recent House vote to extend and expand tax credits for nuclear energy is any indication, Republicans might not be as serious about getting tax reform done this year as they say. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Ryan’s ambitious timeline for reform could be achievable, as the House GOP tax blueprint is a good foundation for updating the tax code.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear the government’s appeal of the so-called travel ban shortly after it reconvenes on Oct. 2. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month The court tipped its hand, indicating that it is likely to side with the administration and uphold the traditional deference that it has accorded the other branches of government when it comes to immigration and national security issues.

The Opioid Crisis Is Dire. Why We Need a National Conversation About It Separate From Obamacare.

Whatever the merits or demerits of the recently released Senate version of the GOP health care bill, some have suggested that it should put more funding into treating opioid addiction. Kill Your Cable Bill! Just $2 a month Let’s be honest—the opioid crisis in America is huge, it is severe, and it is devastating. But this partisan-fought legislation just isn’t the place to put that funding. And it would likely do little to help stem and reverse the opioid crisis. First, it’s not as though funding for opioid treatment and recovery has been absent from the federal budget. As recently as last month, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, was touting signed legislation that spent more than $1 billion to fund recovery programs.

Why ‘There Will Always Be a Place’ for Horses in the US Border Patrol

SAN DIEGO—Since Congress established the U.S. Border Patrol in 1924, a lot has changed. From ATVs to drones, agents are constantly tapping into the latest technology to keep the country’s borders safe.

What a Wounded Veteran Thinks of Trump’s VA Reform

Sgt. Mike Verardo’s military career ended seven years ago because of an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, but he said the worst part of his injuries was dealing with a “broken VA” when he returned home.
