The Democratic candidates who are advocating for a federal minimum wage increase are out of touch with the industries that would be affected. The restaurant industry, for example, would be the first to cut jobs, hours, and probably turn that $10-burger into a $25-burger. Proponents should really be honest with themselves: Would you buy a $25-burger?
Restaurants in areas like New York and Seattle that have already implemented minimum wage increases are already seeing the negative effects, and others in the restaurant industry fear a universal policy.

The Founders never envisioned a Permanent Ruling Class! They envisioned a legislature of “citizen legislators” who would serve no more than a few terms, then return to their previous lives. Unfortunately, we have created career politicians who are in it for the long haul, and in it for themselves. These politicians no longer remember why they came to Washington and who they represent. It’s unfortunate, especially now with lawmakers completely out of touch with their constituents are conducting a witch hunt for political reasons.

Typical. Rather than pass legislation to better America, Democrats are wasting their time with a new witch hunt. Democrats’ “official impeachment inquiry” against President Trump is more of the same – lies and attacks deployed to dismantle our Constitution, our elections, and our liberty.
First of all, the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and the Ukraine president didn’t indicate any evidence of bribing. In regards to the so-called “whistleblower,” he had met with the staff of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and had ...
One year ago, we saw the most vicious and divisive Supreme Court confirmation battle in American history, underscored by uncorroborated claims of sexual assault at the height of the “Me Too” movement. Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed in the face of the ugliest attacks and protests ever hurled at a judicial nominee. The problem is, it could happen again. We know this because the Democrats reignited the Kavanaugh fight in September.

The House and Senate are both in recess for another week.
Following on the Trump Administration’s announcement of its “public charge” rule, the Administration announced on Friday night a new proclamation requiring many future visa applicants to demonstrate that they can afford health insurance. That could make it harder for some poor immigrants to enter the United States. The action is set to go into effect a month from now.

Our national debt is now over $22 trillion, and with the deficit being so high, we have to shell out cash to pay the interest alone. So far, the net interest payments on the debt are estimated to be over $390 billion this fiscal year. These numbers will keep going up unless Congress makes proactive decisions.
One way Congress can fix our spending mess is by using the Penny Plan. Heritage Foundation economist Steve Moore argues why this bipartisan effort that could work:
“For every dollar, we spend in Washington, next year that agency instead of spending that ...
Schools are an important factor in the upbringing of a child. Good teachers and education can set the tone of a kid’s entire life. That’s why it is important for parents to have as much freedom as possible when deciding where their kids go to school. It shouldn’t just be based on where kids live, nor should governments force parents to send their children to public schools. Recently, a new federal report on school choice was released. The Cato Institute has the rundown:
Decreased Government Assignment to Schools
