Trump White House Bars News Organizations From Press Briefing

“Nothing like this has ever happened at the White House in our long history of covering multiple administrations of different parties,” said New York Times editor Dean Baquet.

John Boehner, who once pushed for Obamacare repeal, now says GOP won't repeal the law

Former House speaker John Boehner said Thursday that Republicans won't deliver on a years-long promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, telling an audience at a health care conference that "repeal-and-replace" is "not going to happen," and that the GOP will instead fix the ACA's current framework. "I shouldn't call it repeal-and-replace, because it's not going to happen," Boehner told Politico. "Most of the framework of the Affordable Care Act ... that's going to be there," he added in the Politico interview. Boehner,...

Hundreds of campuses encourage students to turn in fellow students for offensive speech

Universities are the cradle of free speech, where ideologies and ideas clash, where academics and activists can agree, disagree, or be disagreeable. This is particularly true in the United States, where the First Amendment zealously guards against government surveillance and intrusion into free speech. Yet at hundreds of campuses across the country, administrators encourage students to report one another, or their professors, for speech protected by the First Amendment, or even mere political disagreements. The so-called...

But the reality facing the narrow Republican majority in the Senate is not so simple. Because of Senate rules, if the GOP majorities were to advance tax reform that lost the Treasury money year after year — in other words, a tax...
