Trump vs. The Federal Bureaucracy

 

Donald Trump’s triumph over Hillary Clinton presages an even bigger battle ahead against the heart of the Democratic establishment: the federal workforce.

Failure at Foggy Bottom

 

Hillary Clinton boasts that her experience traveling to 112 countries as secretary of state qualifies her to be president. Don’t believe it. At the end of her taxpayer-funded audition on the world stage, she came home empty-handed, with no meaningful gains for the United States. Voters are too smart to be wowed when she rattles off names […]

What’s in Your Wallet?

 

The choice for voters is clear: a tax cut from Trump or a pay cut courtesy of Clinton. Donald Trump is promising to slash income taxes to zero for millions of people currently paying them, and to reduce the tax bite on everyone else except the megarich. Hillary Clinton isn’t cutting income tax rates for anyone. Instead, she’s […]

Bad teachers. We’ve all had one. A Connecticut judge is ordering the state to stop spending money on teachers who can’t or won’t teach. State Superior Court Judge Thomas Moukawsher ruled last week that Connecticut must overhaul how it evaluates and pays public school teachers, including expediting firing the worst performers.
