As Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis once said, “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.” And I agree. By posting government spending online, citizens are able to play an active role in their government and help root out fraud, waste and abuse.

  • Communicating with your representatives
    Tuesday, August 15, 2017 1:42 AM
    Having a productive conversation with elected representatives comes down to being informed, remaining courteous, being curious and open to dialogue yourself, and stating your views and understanding of the issues as clearly as possible.

    I have always blamed John Wilkes Booth for the period known as the “Jim Crow” years. Had he not assassinated President Lincoln, I believe Lincoln would have filled out his term uniting the country and perhaps lived until 1900 as a senior statesman to which the country would listen for guidance. I can envision Lincoln – in later years – touring the former Confederate states and calling out the malfeasance that became known as Jim Crow.

    The fact that Trump – after internal pressure – was more forceful on Monday than on Saturday may prove to be a good thing and a learning moment. Let's hope there's not a next time for him to have to draw on this type of experience. And to the law-breaking protesters on either side, one can't help but wonder: When was the last time you actually put in a 60-hour work week or a 40-hour work week or even a 20-hour work week? Try it sometime. You'll be a lot less energetic about causing public and private property damage, making idiotic signs and even more idiotic rhymes – and trying to kill one another.

    Monday, August 14, 2017 9:06 AM
    Newspaper editorial boards including the New York Times and the Washington Post have endorsed the Problem Solvers’ plan, and many constituents have come up to thank me for this common-sense proposal to make healthcare more affordable.

  • Has the world fallen off its axis?
    Monday, August 14, 2017 7:12 AM
    What is it about this time in history or this person that even with the weight of facts they choose to be unwavering in support? Our president is a man. He’s flawed. He’s also achieved success in his life. That doesn’t mean his ideas and behavior are always perfect – or always horrible.

  • End Senate confirmation delays
    Monday, August 14, 2017 7:03 AM
    Democrats in the Senate are using unnecessary procedural hurdles because they don’t like the results of the presidential election. My colleagues on the other side of the aisle have allowed only 10 percent of President Trump’s nominees to be confirmed by voice vote, while more than 90 percent of President Obama’s nominees had been confirmed by voice vote at this point in 2009.

  • Bringing regulatory policies into the 21st century
    Saturday, August 12, 2017 9:28 AM
    Federal regulations should do their critical job of protecting public health, safety, and the environment while not unnecessarily hurting job creation and economic growth. This goal is achievable, but it requires a smarter and more modern regulatory process.

    The word “grace” has to do with favorable attributes. Noah Webster tells us that it is “to adorn; to decorate; to embellish and dignify; to raise and to honor” (1828 Dictionary). The word is used in the Bible chiefly in terms of either “saving” grace or “serving” grace.

    From food aid to Medicaid to Pell Grants, the Republican budget plan making its way through the U.S. House of Representatives takes aim at critical public services that help millions of Ohioans, according to a report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.
