In the confounding world of health care, what at first looked like a convenient bargaining chip has instead left the Trump administration ducking out of a taxpayer boomerang. “ObamaCare is in serious trouble,” President Donald Trump tweeted on April 23 to start a busy week of negotiation. “The Dems need big money to keep it going — otherwise it dies far sooner than anyone...

Editorial: Forget ‘death spiral,’ Obamacare should be fixed, not killed

An inconvenient fact is elbowing its way into the national discussion about Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act (ACA), to use the formal name, is not “failing,” not “exploding,” not in “death spiral.” It’s not, that is, unless President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress push it over a ledge. Which Trump has threatened to do. The latest evidence for the...

What happened to Donald Trump's old plane?

What happened to Donald Trump's old plane?

Editor's Note: Back in 2011, Donald Trump sold his 727 private jet and purchased a much roomier 757.

By then, though, Trump had decided against running in the 2012 GOP primary field and, ultimately, challenging President Obama’s re-election bid. But … "It's a big...

POINT OF VIEW ‘Tax reform’ is just ‘trickle down’ with a new name

Some politicians believe that if you cut taxes for the rich, then prosperity for all will follow. This is actually an old theory, which used to be called the “trickle down” theory. But this theory has been proven false. President Bill Clinton raised taxes and prosperity followed, and President George W. Bush lowered taxes and a recession followed. And the “trickle down” wording...
