Donald Trump’s Very Good Idea: Raise the Gas Tax Donald Trump’s Very Good Idea: Raise the Gas Tax
Every once in a while, President Trump says something that really makes sense, as when he suggested on Monday raising the federal gasoline tax to help pay for his infrastructure plan. Hold on to that thought, Mr. President. It’s a great idea.

Send ‘Fearless Girl’ on tour: Our view Send ‘Fearless Girl’ on tour: Our view
In 1989, artist Arturo Di Modica deposited his Charging Bull statue on Wall Street, intending for the animal to become a symbol of American resilience in the aftermath of a stock market crash two years earlier.

Now Netflix Is All Thumbs Now Netflix Is All Thumbs
Netflix, as you may have heard, is killing off its stars. At a recent news conference at its headquarters in Los Gatos, Calif., the company announced it was shedding its former one-to-five-star rating system in favor of binary digits: namely, thumbs up or thumbs down. “Now it’s easier to tell us what you like,” the site promises.

John Kasich: End the Partisan Warfare on Health Care John Kasich: End the Partisan Warfare on Health Care
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Americans are relying on leaders in Washington to fix health care, not engage in yet another unproductive partisan standoff.
