It would reduce the quality of care and strain the program’s finances. Moderate Democrats like Sens.

Republicans passed a package of market-friendly laws to expand access and increase competition.

The split bill is good for him. It complicates life and minimizes losses for congressional Democrats.

They’re out of power in Washington, but in state capitals they can show they have real solutions. With the Supreme Court having (unsurprisingly) upheld ObamaCare again, Republicans are playing defense on health policy in Washington. Advancing conservative health-policy principles at the state level—where they have majority control in 30 legislatures—allows Republicans to advance federalism while […]

What is unique about COVID that brought this new left religiosity to the fore?

To begin to fix immigration, we must agree the American identity is worth preserving and then work to build an immigration system that nourishes it.

As America becomes more secular and pluralistic, conservatives are fighting a rearguard battle to protect their rights to speak, worship, and participate in the public square.

As increasingly secular liberals find more and more meaning in politics, they are becoming increasingly fundamentalist.
