Last week, Andrew Yang became the second announced Democratic candidate for president to surpass the 65,000 individual donation threshold to be on the stage in the televised Democratic debates. Yang is the son of Taiwanese immigrants and has a law…

“I think the $33 trillion price tag for Medicare for All is a little scary,” Rep. Cheri Bustos, chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, confessed to the Hill earlier this week. That $33 trillion estimate assumes, more or less…

Most Americans recognize the phrase, “A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.” Yet few could tell you, without a surreptitious glance at Wikipedia, that it was Herbert Hoover’s 1928 campaign slogan. It was obviously meant to…

Gotta love this January 23, 2019 poll of Americans surveyed by the Kaiser Family Health Foundation.
