Tax reform even John Boehner could love

In a world where principled bipartisanship is often disregarded in favor of political rhetoric, I have a simple proposition for House Speaker John Boehner: Let's sit down together and figure out how to get tax reform done. Few would disagree that it's time to reform the outdated U.S. Tax Code.

Both parties in Congress play it safe

Seven weeks before the elections, Republicans and Democrats are both playing it safe, willing to make short-term sacrifices of long-held positions in hopes of maximizing their chances for victory at the polls. That means that House Republicans who recently voted to sue President Barack Obama for what they say is his failure to obey the Constitution seem likely to hand him new war powers to combat militants seeking an Islamic state.

Sen. Lindsey Graham says the Chris Christie scandal is a reflection...

The Obama administration struggled Sunday to define its strategy for beating back the Islamic State in Iraq and particularly in Syria , where its plan to rely on moderate fighters at this stage is complicating President Obama's sales pitch to Congress and his legacy of winding down wars in the Middle East. While Secretary of State John F. Kerry said it is a "waste of time" to focus on the semantics of whether America is at war or not with the extremists - also known as ISIS or ISIL - White House chief of staff Denis McDonough answered that irrelevant question after being asked it at the start of several Sunday political shows.

How a Republican Stays Afloat in a Hispanic-Majority Border District

Inside a local radio station near New Mexico's dusty eastern border, Steve Pearce needs just one take as he breezily speaks-in English-to his district's Hispanic community during a mock 15-minute radio "interview" for a paid campaign infomercial to be aired next month on Spanish-language stations. A conservative white lawmaker who is not fluent in Spanish, Pearce, 67, is seen nationally as a bit of a curiosity: A Republican who keeps getting reelected in this sprawling district that is more than half Hispanic and where Democrats have an 8-point edge in voter enrollment.
