When I was in the Tennessee General Assembly and we wanted to address a specific issue, like infrastructure, we would caption the bill so the final version dealt only with infrastructure. It kept the legislation on topic and made the debates more meaningful. Unlike Congress, we didn’t have last-minute, unrelated policy riders that jacked up the price tag or expanded the scope of the bill.
Tennessee voters and taxpayers expect straightforward bills from the state Legislature.

One of the side effects of fighting the coronavirus pandemic has been the effort of some politicians to take power and run amok.

It’s time to start getting things back to normal after weeks of unprecedented national sacrifice to stop the coronavirus from spreading.
President Trump has wisely unveiled a comprehensive three-phase plan to gradually reopen the economy while safeguarding our hard-won public health victories.
Contrary to what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her ilk would have you believe, no one wants to rush this. But it’s important to acknowledge some need for urgency.

America wasn’t prepared to deal with the novel coronavirus pandemic, Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield acknowledged to me in a recent interview. But he is doing everything possible to fight the virus now.
There are many reasons for this lack of preparedness, including the Chinese government’s refusal to provide accurate, reliable and timely medical information about the pandemic that began in the Chinese city of Wuhan. This led U.S.

We are watching the birth of the job-killing, ice cream-eating liberal Democratic Party.
After a week of blocking more money for American small businesses, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., decided it would be effective to show up on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” on CBS to communicate her human side. It was a bizarre interview with the woman who stopped billions of dollars in aid for small businesses and their employees.

Imagine an election where a ballot is sent to a person regardless of eligibility, signed by someone else, picked up and delivered by a campaign operative, and still counted. If Democrats got their way, that is what would happen in Nevada this June, and nationwide in November.
Democrats have sued Nevada in an attempt to block the state from enforcing election laws on the books in their upcoming primary.

A growing chorus on the right is slamming the shutdowns as an overreaction and agitating to end them. A good example of the genre is an op-ed co-authored by former Education Secretary William Bennett and talk-radio host Seth Leibsohn.
