The Death of American Coal

Share

 

By Stephen Moore at Freedom Works Originally Published in The Washington Times on 4/17/16.

There was a time in America — and it wasn’t even so long ago — that liberals actually cared about working class people. They may have been misguided in many of their policy solutions — i.e., raising the minimum wage — but at least their heart was in the right place.

Then a strange thing happened about a decade ago. The radical left wing environmentalists took control of the Democratic Party. These are crazies who care more about the supposed rise of the oceans than the financial survival of the middle class. The industrial unions made a catastrophic decision to get in bed with these

As Republican policymakers nationwide continue debating ways to replace Obamacare with patient-centered solutions, a Colorado group has landed a plan implementing a single-payer model of health care on November’s ballot. Coloradans are already bracing for its impact.

In the general election, Colorado residents will not only head to the polls to cast their votes for president, but they’ll also weigh in on a controversial ballot measure: Amendment 69, which would create a government-run health care plan in the Centennial

For many Americans, the days leading up to tax day are some of the most dreaded on the calendar. Over the past several weeks, Americans have spent many frustrating hours poring over W-2’s and Form 1040’s as they prepare their tax returns. According to the Internal Revenue Service, Americans collectively spend roughly 6.6 billion hours a year filling out tax forms for Uncle Sam.

In case the burdensome task of filing taxes isn’t cause enough for celebration, this week also marks “Tax Freedom Day” as calculated by the

In the wake of the recent “Panama Papers” scandal, this unassuming brick office has received renewed scrutiny from the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Continue reading…
