The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

From the Compromise of 1790 onward, the American system is built around establishing broad consensus for major issues, passing bipartisan legislation where both parties get something they want.  The result is increased ownership of government programs and less acrimony.  Isn’t that what everyone claims to want for America?

Biden’s big overseas trip, but where’s the beef?

President Joe Biden attended two summits with other world leaders and met with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time.  There’s no question the style and tone marked a radical departure from former President Trump.  The real question is whether or not he accomplished anything except talk.

The megarich refuse to pay their fair share of taxes, sometimes these progressive frauds don’t pay anything at all
