Politics

The use of accounting trickery to obscure Mr. Biden’s pipe dream true cost is nothing new on Capitol Hill. But in BBB’s case, the magnitude of the Democrats’ deception is without peer.

The bill would touch just about every sector of the US economy, from healthcare to the environment.

During a period of immense economic anxiety and persistent inflation, the last thing Americans need is a coordinated effort by elected officials to secretly explode the deficit.

Have a happy, prosperous Christmas week, Keep the Faith!
