Writing a bill is a complicated process. Not just getting members of Congress to co-sponsor it. Not just negotiating the broad terms of agreement to accommodate different points of view. But the actual writing, getting down on paper specific details. This is not done by the individual Congress member but by his or her staff. […]

Who can forget the twin insults of going to war in Iraq over massaged intelligence and then paying for a multi-trillion dollar war through borrowing, thereby exploding the national debt? There is a solution, one that would co-incidentally return to Congress the effective power to declare war, a power that the executive has wrested from […]

For decades, communist opposition defined much of U.S. foreign policy. We fought wars, made questionable allies and spent countless billions of dollars to counter that threat. Because of the mutual destructive power contained in the U.S. and Soviet nuclear arsenals, our opposition was easily justified as an existential necessity. Republican and Democratic administrations alike steadfastly […]

Security and mandatory spending, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the increase in terror-prevention expenditures and the growth of entitlements have crowded out all other domestic spending. This downward trend continues, even as we enjoy historically low interest rates. The cost of our wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and on terror is dear, and we’ve […]

The path to a balanced budget does not lie over the rubble heap of reduced Social Security and Medicare benefits, though many would have you think so. Both these programs represent a social contract that all working Americans take very seriously. They presume that since they’ve paid their premiums through payroll taxes, they should get […]

A string of calamities have followed the tragedy of 9/11: the war in Iraq, the war on terror, Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, torture, drones, the Patriot Act and an erosion of our civil liberties. Encroachments into our privacy were revealed in myriad secret domestic spying programs with ineffectual congressional and judicial oversight. The legal justification […]

Nothing gets done if Congress remains deadlocked, if House Republicans continue, robot-like, to vote to repeal Obamacare and if the Senate continues to filibuster every bill the administration proposes. Not only is government paralyzed; it’s an affront to the very idea of democracy. As I said in my book The Reagan Memes: The Path from Reagan Conservatism to […]

There should be a path to citizenship for the millions of undocumented residents who are striving to earn that position. It says something about the condition of the House of Representatives that it won’t even consider the plan, worked out in the Senate by both Democrats and Republicans, that addresses this important issue.   Please excuse the brevity […]

Isn’t it about time that we got this straight? We pay people for the work they do. We don’t discriminate on the basis of sex—including sexual orientation. Or against certain ethnic or racial groups. Or against with people with handicaps.   Please excuse the brevity of some of my issue statements. I am running a bare-boned campaign. […]

Like other liberals and progressives, I believe in a woman’s right to make her health care decisions without the undue influence of government. Every day we learn of new obstructions to this Constitutionally protected right.   Please excuse the brevity of some of my issue statements. I am running a bare-boned campaign. Most of the things I […]

Even NRA members agree that commonsense guns laws should be enacted. I want to ban the sale of assault weapons. That goes for high-capacity clips, too. Hunters don’t need a quick 30 rounds to kill a deer.   Please excuse the brevity of some of my issue statements. I am running a bare-boned campaign. Most of the […]
