Republicans Against the Tax Bill

A number of Republican senators have expressed strong reservations about the tax-reform bill currently under consideration in the upper house. While there are only a handful of dissenters, the narrow 52–48 majority in the Senate means that the party cannot afford to lose more than two if it is to push the bill through. Most of the skeptics are concerned ...

Roy Moore’s Polling: An Update

A new FiveThirtyEight polling roundup reveals that the drop in Moore’s support immediately after allegations emerged of molestation and improper relationships by the former judge was not a one-off. He has seen a steady decline in support since, moving from a large lead before the allegations to dead heat just after to clearly falling behind his opponents in the most ...

The New York Times vs. Alliance Defending Freedom

Jeremy Peters writes in the New York Times: “We think that in a free society people who believe that marriage is between a man and a woman shouldn’t be coerced by the government to promote a different view of marriage,” said Jeremy Tedesco, a senior counsel and vice president of United States advocacy for the group, which is based in ...

Should Tenure Depend on ‘Collegiality’?

Tenure is supposed to protect college faculty from termination if their speech or writing disturbs school officials. That protection is getting weaker and weaker. For example, Marquette is trying to get rid of tenured political-science professor John McAdams because of a blog post that criticized an instructor’s handling of a controversy with a student. Now, there is a proposal being ...

Trump Defends Roy Moore: At Least He’s Not Democrat Doug Jones

Yesterday afternoon, President Trump addressed press questions about Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who in mid November was accused of having sexually assaulted two teenage girls when he was in his thirties. Perhaps predictably, Trump did more to defend Moore than to acknowledge the apparent credibility of his accusers. “He denies it. Look, he denies it,” Trump said of ...

KPMG Analysis on Tax-Base Erosion: Senate vs. House

During the battle against the Border Adjustment Tax, the Senate was always the most responsible party. The tax writers on the House side, on the other hand, created and, for far too long, fully embraced that bad idea (thus delaying significantly the necessary unification around tax reform in our broadly defined movement). The same can be said about anti–base-erosion provisions ...

Alabamians Should Reject Both of Them

If you’re a voter in Alabama who can’t in good conscience vote for either Roy Moore or Doug Jones–because Moore is most likely a serial sexual predator, and Jones supports a grave injustice–don’t try to overcome your conscience. ...[READ MORE]   SOURCE: National Review
