Dems' tax-inversion demagoguery a whopper flopper

Can insurance companies save public pensions?

Sen. Orrin Hatch has introduced an idea to reform pension plans.

Utah's Stewart: Speeches won't help, Obama must act

Washington a Fresh off a trip to the Middle East, Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, says President Barack Obama has been remiss in dealing with threats in the region and the United States now must act to tamp down a strengthened terrorist group whose advance could erase any gains made over more than a decade of war. "The president has had a rough summer and I don't mean to pile on but there's no question that we are reaping what we sowed from policies of the last four or five years," Stewart said Wednesday after visiting Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Egypt and Morocco with other members of Congress to hear from leaders on the ground.
