Lower premiums, increased choices and improved care: these were the promises made to America by those who imposed Obamacare. Exactly the opposite has happened.

I strongly support President Trump’s decision to fire James Comey for gross misconduct during his tenure, and only wish he had done so on January 20th. Because of the highly politicized circumstances involving the Russia inquiry, I think an independent prosecutor would be advisable to place the inquiry above reproach.

“President Trump has nominated a true champion of free-market principles to lead the Export-Import Bank. I have no doubt that Scott Garrett will fundamentally transform the Bank to embrace merit over political favoritism. That’s a good start.”

This bill funds the government through September 30th. Sadly, it continues a spending trajectory in which deficits are expected to hit trillion-dollar annual levels within just a few years – risking a sovereign debt crisis that has proven devastating to economic growth and often fatal to other countries...
