America Has Lost the Thread

I want to stay with 9/11 to say something that struck me hard after the ceremonies last Saturday. The grief felt and expressed had to do with more than the memories of that day 20 years ago. It also had to do with right now. It had to do with a sense that we are […]

Biden’s Price Controls Will Make Good Health More Expensive

Democrats are looking for ways to finance their $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill and one plan is to put price controls on prescription drugs.
