Trump Nominee Not Hindered by Bernie Sanders’ Religious Litmus Test

No thanks to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., President Donald Trump’s pick for the Office of Management and Budget is one step closer to his new job. After a faith-based grilling that left Sanders red-faced and Americans in shock, Russell Vought’s nomination squeaked out of the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee by the narrowest of margins, 8-7. The hearings caught the country’s attention when Sanders made the case that Christians like Vought are unfit for public office—even in jobs that have nothing to do with faith. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); While Sanders fired shot after shot at the Office of Management and Budget’s soon-to-be second-in-command, Vought was the picture of poise, explaining that he thinks everyone has inherent dignity, even if they don’t agree with him that Jesus is the only way … Read entire article »

4 Conservative Senators Say They Can’t Vote for GOP’s Draft Health Care Bill

Four conservative senators promptly said they can’t support the draft of a health care bill released Thursday by the Senate’s Republican leadership as a cure for Obamacare. “Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor,” Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Ted Cruz of Texas, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, and Mike Lee of Utah wrote in a formal statement. Today I join senators Lee, Johnson, and Cruz in opposition to the #HealthcareBill.

Trump: GOP Health Care Bill Needs ‘a Little Negotiation’

President Donald Trump didn’t give a strong indication about where he stood on details of the Senate bill to replace Obamacare—but he at least seemed happy the proposal is moving forward. “Obamacare is dead and we’re putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated,” @POTUS says. “A little negotiation, but it’s going to be very good,” Trump told reporters during a technology event at the White House Thursday. During his prepared remarks, he talked briefly about health care. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); “Obamacare is dead and we’re putting a plan out today that is going to be negotiated,” Trump said. “We’d love to have some Democrats’ support, but they’re obstructionists.” After a second try, the House passed a health care bill last month. Though he celebrated the passing in a Rose Garden … Read entire article »

Obama Says Health Bill Will ‘Ruin’ Medicaid. Here’s Why the Program Needs Reform.

The much-anticipated Senate health care bill dropped Thursday morning, and the hot takes poured in. While analysts are scrambling to understand the details of the legislation, one of the biggest early criticisms is that it eviscerates Medicaid, which is a public health care program. Liberal pundits and legislators reacted by saying that the bill would destroy the program.

Up to 5.7 Million Noncitizens Voted in Past Presidential Elections, Study Finds

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the 2008 election and potentially more voted in 2016, according to a new study by Just Facts, a New Jersey-based research group, drawing on information from other studies. The study—based on data compiled from Harvard University’s Cooperative Congressional Election Study, an analysis published in the journal Electoral Studies co-authored by Old Dominion University faculty, and Census data—also provides some support for what then-President-elect Donald Trump tweeted in late November, when he asserted he won the popular vote if the fraudulent votes were deducted. The Just Facts study did not look specifically at 2016. In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally — Donald J.

How Trump Could Change the Country’s Direction With These Court Vacancies

There is likely no political issue more important to either side of the ideological spectrum than who controls the Supreme Court. Rumors are building that another justice is going to retire this summer. The odds-on favorites are two members in their 80s: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal justice, and Anthony Kennedy, the notorious swing vote. If either retire, President Donald Trump’s next nominee could determine the balance of the court for decades—and the fight over that justice will be a battle royale. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); But as enticing as such prospects may be, is it possible that Trump’s appointments to lower courts are just as important? The often overlooked reality is this: Whether it’s blocking travel bans or redefining marriage, the Supreme Court only hears cases that lower courts have already heard and … Read entire article »

The Senate Health Care Bill Misses a Key Opportunity. Here’s What Should Be Done.

While the ongoing congressional effort to reform health care is falling short of repealing Obamacare, it is critical that Congress maximize every opportunity to undo Obamacare’s damage. The draft bill released on Thursday by the Senate misses important opportunities to move closer toward that objective. On net, the Senate bill is better than Obamacare because it contains provisions to reduce insurance premiums and promote access to insurance in the short run, cut taxes, and provide major Medicaid reform that will help refocus the program on those most in need. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); It is still an open question, however, whether the bill will repair enough of the damage caused by Obamacare so that the middle-class self-employed will be able to find affordable health insurance in five years. To move closer to the goal … Read entire article »

Circuit Court Win for Religious Freedom on Gay Marriage

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously on Thursday that a Mississippi law that protects religious liberty and the rights of conscience in light of the redefinition of marriage may go into effect. In the decision, the circuit court overruled a previous judgment from a district court judge who had declared the Mississippi law unconstitutional for violating the Establishment Clause and the Equal Protection Clause. But as the circuit court pointed out, the challengers to Mississippi’s law lack standing because they “have not clearly shown injury-in-fact.” In other words, they did not show how the Mississippi law protecting liberty for people who hold to the pre-Obergefell v. Hodges definition of marriage harmed them.
