Bridging The Gap
Don't take the environmental cop off the beat: Column Don't take the environmental cop off the beat: Column
There are few American values we cherish more than fair play and accountability. These values guide any strong law enforcement program that holds bad actors to account when they do harm to others. That is certainly true of how we operated at the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance, where I worked until last year. EPA’s enforcement deters irresponsibl...

Suspending driver's licenses creates a vicious cycle: Column Suspending driver's licenses creates a vicious cycle: Column
Some states are recognizing the injustice of linking to the ability to pay court-imposed fines and fees. Though our nation feels more divided than ever, there is a common concern that cuts across party lines and entrenched ideological silos: a pervasive sense that we have failed to give all Americans an equal opportunity to attain the American dream. Despite our best efforts, government polici...

Democrats have a viable path forward: Guy Cecil Democrats have a viable path forward: Guy Cecil
In the months since President Trump's victory, Democrats have been debating whether we must focus on our party's demographically diverse base or redirect our attention to the white, working-class voters who defected in historic numbers to Donald Trump. This is a false choice. To be successful in 2017, 2018 and beyond, Democrats need to persuade and motivate all of these voters. And there is ear...

Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column Protect our troops, not Wall Street: Column
President Trump won the election by appealing to blue collar, working-class voters desperate for a change from the norms of Washington. “I'm not going to let Wall Street get away with murder,” he said in January 2016. “Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us.” Wall Street and predatory lenders are assuming that rhetoric was all for show, and they were no doubt heartened by Trump’s ste...

Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column Don't panic about 'alternative facts': Column
Since Donald Trump upended everything we thought we knew about politics, hands have been wrung and ink has been spilled about the "post-factual age." How could the candidate with the worst Politifact rating in the 2016 campaign come out on top? How could fake news cause a man to shoot up a pizzeria in a quiet Washington neighborhood? How could the Trump administration claim its new press secretary...

Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view Trump's 'trust me' trust: Our view
President-elect Donald Trump, in his first news conference in six months, laid out plans Wednesday for how he'd avoid conflicts of interest while maintaining a far-flung business empire. He will place his company in a trust to be managed by two of his sons. Count us unimpressed. The word “trust” in this case is an artifice. Trump is not actually divesting himself of anything. He, and the rest o...

The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider The golden era of anti-knowledge: Christian Schneider
Shortly before his death in 1983, eccentric futurist Buckminster Fuller introduced what he called the "knowledge-doubling curve" to describe the rapid acceleration of human knowledge. Fuller estimated that before 1900, humanity's cognitive database doubled every century; after World War II, the doubling of knowledge occurred after every 25 years. But with technological advances, recent studies sug...

The Season to Be Stressful The Season to Be Stressful
MONTREAL — Red Bull? Check. Late-night delivery on speed dial? Check. Pringles? Check. You would think that after three semesters of college, I’d have learned my lesson. No more skipping classes to catch up on missed assignments before finals, pulling all-nighters before an exam, or relying on junk food for sustenance as I burn the midnight oil. “This won’t happen again,” I remember telling ...

Real people rely on Obamacare Real people rely on Obamacare
In policy and political debates, we often forget the human impact of weighty choices. Abstract numbers, ideological arguments, “he said, she said” talking points and outright falsehoods — these are the currency of our public discourse. But elections and policies have real consequences in the everyday lives of ordinary families. As Congress considers repeal of the Affordable Care Act, we at the ...

Keep the overtime rule: Our view Keep the overtime rule: Our view
Donald Trump won the presidency with a populist message and the support of working class voters. But, aside from Trump's staunch opposition to trade deals, little of his agenda is actually geared toward improving the lot of the people who embraced him. His cabinet selections so far have been heavy on billionaires and Wall Street financiers. His tax cuts would disproportionately help the wealthy...
