    That Good Old "Do-Nothing" Congress

    Oftentimes, people fret that Congress isn’t doing anything. But is that such a bad thing?

    Voting Rights: Anything but Non-Partisan

    In reaction to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Shelby County v. Holder decision last June, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R., Wis.) and Sen.

    The Real 'War on the Poor' Is Being Waged by Obama

    Republicans in Congress are being accused of fighting a “war on the war on poverty,” in part because of a tiny cut in the food stamps program last week. Democrats charge that these “cuts” will take food from the mouths of hungry children, and they claim this is an example … More

    When Presidents Upheld the Law

    Today is known as “President’s Day,” a three-day weekend retailers use to lend an air of Founding-era seriousness to their sales. But its legal name is Washington’s birthday—and how appropriate to reflect on a President who took his bearings from the Constitution while serving in office. George Washington “understood himself … More

    Workers Choose Not to Turn Chattanooga Into Detroit

    Three weeks ago I traveled to Chattanooga, Tenn., on behalf of the Beacon Institute to educate workers and community leaders on the perils of unionizing the 3,000-worker Volkswagen plant. My message: beware turning Chattanooga, a surprisingly fast-growing metro area in the South, into Detroit. So when the plant workers rejected … More

    Americans Can Unite Around 'Core Ideas,' DeMint Says on 'Face the Nation'

    Although Democrats in Congress willingly gave President Obama “a blank check” to borrow more money last week and most Republicans didn’t, Americans are tired of such partisan fights in Washington and ready to rally around “core ideas,” Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint said this morning on “Face the Nation.” “America … More
