Bridging The Gap
Tax Day isn't likely to be easier next year: Bill Sternberg Tax Day isn't likely to be easier next year: Bill Sternberg
Republicans don't agree on changes to the tax code any more than they do changes to Obamacare. We got our tax returns back from the accountant the other day. Although our family finances aren’t unusually complicated, our federal and state returns for 2016 were 50 pages long. The printouts featured entries about “line 18 of the Unrecaptured Section 1250 Gain Worksheet,” “transactions reported on...

United's unfriendly approach: Our view United's unfriendly approach: Our view
The skies might be friendly for United, but not so much on the ground, where some of the airline's employees seem to be suffering from a dearth of common sense. Last month, United provoked widespread ridicule when personnel barred two teenage girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings, which the airline said violated a dress code policy for those traveling on employee passe...

Trespassing on Internet privacy: Our view Trespassing on Internet privacy: Our view
President Trump certainly has an odd idea of what it means to be a populist. Not only did he back a plan that would have stripped millions of people of their health insurance, he has undermined the notion that people might have some shred of privacy while on the Internet. On Monday night, Trump quietly put his name to a bill stripping consumers of Internet privacy protections drafted by the Fed...

National Council of La Raza: Don’t abandon families National Council of La Raza: Don’t abandon families
child care, opening a bank account, and enrolling in school. They provide needed support for family-owned businesses and are significant contributors to their communities, and many of tomorrow’s innovators are among them. The founders of Google, Yahoo and eBay are all immigrants — and none came to the United States through a skilled-workers visa. Immigration shouldn't be all in the family: Our ...

Westminster attack was long overdue and couldn't have been prevented Westminster attack was long overdue and couldn't have been prevented
Wednesday's attack on London was expected, planned for, and in the view of many, a long time coming. The UK terror threat has stood at "severe" for more than two years now, meaning that the response to this kind of attack in such a high-profile location had been extensively rehearsed. This was amply reflected in the way in which London, its security services and the public responded: rapid fir...

Through executive order, Trump aims to make government 'less wasteful' Through executive order, Trump aims to make government 'less wasteful'
WASHINGTON — President Trump launched an ambitious effort to reorganize the federal government Monday, signing an executive order that he said would "make it less wasteful and more productive." Like many of Trump's executive orders, the order sets a high-level policy but leaves the details to be determined. Titled "Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch," the directive gives T...

The Case for a Border-Adjusted Tax The Case for a Border-Adjusted Tax
The American corporate tax system is broken. Faced with one of the highest tax rates in the world, many multinational corporations in the United States move their operations and reported profits offshore or undertake “inversions” to relinquish their American tax nationality. Elaborate regulatory and enforcement measures have been unable to stop this. Vilifying companies for their behavior hasn’t w...

Ms. DeVos’s Fake History About School Choice Ms. DeVos’s Fake History About School Choice
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos offered a positively Orwellian explanation Monday of why historically black colleges and universities were created in the United States. Incredibly, she suggested that they were “real pioneers” in the school-choice movement and “started from the fact that there were too many students in America who did not have equal access to education.” The Education Department...

Republicans refuse to enforce gun law: Our view Republicans refuse to enforce gun law: Our view
Seven weeks into Congress’ new session, little on the Republicans’ list of major goals has been accomplished. But right out of the box, members of the GOP majority made sure to get one thing done: Make it easier for people with severe mental illness to buy guns. Talk about getting things backwards. Under a policy based on a decade-old law and approved during the final days of the Obama White H...

Trump's terrorism claim is baloney Trump's terrorism claim is baloney
First, there was the "Bowling Green massacre" that wasn't. Now comes President Donald Trump's claim Monday at the key US military base overseeing the war on ISIS -- US Central Command in Tampa, Florida -- that the media aren't reporting terrorism for "reasons" the President didn't elaborate upon. Trump told the CENTCOM audience, "You've seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe, it...
