We Hear You: Facing the Opioid Crisis and Defending the Marriage Views of Farmers

Editor’s note: We were pretty jazzed to publish a commentary on the opioid crisis by William Bennett and Robert DuPont. We’ve been meaning to run some of your reactions, so let’s begin with them, followed by more on the farmers banned from a farmers market . Be sure to write us at letters@dailysignal.com—Ken McIntyre Dear Daily Signal: The current panic over opioid drug abuse is just the latest hyped-up cause for the media (“Getting the Opioid Epidemic Right”). The only result is that people who legitimately need opioids for chronic, intractable pain have an increasingly difficult time getting doctors to prescribe those desperately needed medications. Doctors are told that their licenses may be in jeopardy if they prescribe opiates, so they are reluctant to do so. “Pain doctors” are being designated and onerous … Read entire article »

Trump Dumps Reince Priebus After Rocky 6 Months as Chief of Staff

A week after a communications team shake-up at the White House, President Donald Trump announced he was replacing his chief of staff with his homeland security secretary—leaving a key Cabinet position to fill. “Reince is a good man. John Kelly will do a fantastic job,” @POTUS says. Just before 5 p.m. Friday, Trump tweeted that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly would replace Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff. Priebus reportedly opposed the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as White House communications director. Scaramucci also disparaged Priebus, according to The New Yorker, and said he and Priebus were brothers like “Cain and Abel” in a CNN interview.

Congress Needs to Go Right Back to Work on Health Care Reform

Enough is enough. The Senate needs to get back to work and deliver a health care reform bill. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump needs to shut off the flow of illegal health insurance subsidies to members of the House and Senate and congressional staff, and force them to live under Obamacare’s damage just like other Americans. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); With the collapse of the Senate effort to advance a health care reform bill, Americans witnessed a monumental failure of governance. >>> Related: 3 Republicans Join Democrats to Defeat Obamacare Repeal For seven years, members of the House and Senate repeatedly promised the voters that they would repeal and replace Obamacare. The voters repeatedly rewarded them with election to office, and Republicans secured majorities in the House and Senate. Senators must now keep their promises. It is amazing … Read entire article »

How Obamacare Is Eroding Private Insurance

The Senate has now failed to pass legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare. The longer Congress delays or avoids action, the more the problems are likely to grow and compound. The most common and publicized problems with the law have been the skyrocketing premiums and withdrawal of insurers from Obamacare exchanges—consequences that have flown in the face of Obamacare’s backers who said the reform would increase choice and lower costs. But the increasing cost of premiums has had additional repercussions. Larger numbers of middle-income Americans who aren’t eligible for subsidies are now struggling to pay for coverage or, as more insurers leave the market, unable to get coverage at all. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); So while programs for the poor, like Medicaid, continue to grow, the private market for middle-income Americans shrinks. Middle-income Americans … Read entire article »

Nord Stream 2 Pipeline Would Embolden Russia, Put European Stability at Risk

The proposed Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline, which will run alongside the existing Nord Stream pipeline under the Baltic Sea in northern Europe, would directly connect Russia and Germany by bypassing several other European countries. This pipeline would only make Europe more dependent on Russian gas and more vulnerable to Moscow’s energy blackmail. The Trump administration should pressure Germany to not go ahead with the deal. The project, led by Germany and Russia, has shown the deftness of Berlin toward its neighbors. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); First, the project is to be funded through a joint venture between Gazprom, a Russian energy oligopoly, and five other European countries—but other countries like Poland are against the project. Poland is not alone in believing Nord Stream 2 will undermine its national security, and, in fact, … Read entire article »

Conservatives Say Losing Jeff Sessions Would Be ‘Disastrous’

Conservatives across the country are joining forces to support Attorney General Jeff Sessions following President Donald Trump’s criticism of Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation. “We support Attorney General Jeff Sessions and believe he is the right man, and the best man, to lead the Justice Department at this time,” reads a memo released Friday from the Conservative Action Project and signed by dozens of conservative leaders. Signers of the memo include Ken Blackwell, a former Ohio secretary of state and Trump transition team member who is on the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity; L.
