  • Why do conservatives want to bail out Obamacare?

    In my Bloomberg View column this week, I argued that Republicans should work to pass a law to prevent the abuse of Obamacare's "risk corridors." Designed properly, risk corridors can be a useful way to spread risk among the insurers who participate in...
  • Government overreliance: The devil is in the details

    The Constitution is powerless against Satan. Earlier this month, the state of Oklahoma received a proposal from New York-based Satanists to build near the state Capitol a 7-foot-high statue of Baphomet, a goat-headed pagan idol. The Satanists' letter...
  • Myths to ditch in 2014

    The Beltway consensus seems to be that 2013 was a bad year for the same reason nearly every other recent year was bad: polarization and partisanship. Personally, I can think of plenty of more important things to worry about than partisanship. Democracy is...
  • Will states' rights go to pot?

    On Jan. 1, the Centennial State (it hasn't yet changed its nickname to "The Rocky Mountain High State") became the first place in the country to legalize marijuana sales for recreational purposes. And Brandon Harris is stoked. The 24-year-old Harris...
  • A millennial's Rolling Stone rant offers up some tired old 'solutions'

    "In America," Oscar Wilde quipped, "the young are always ready to give to those who are older than themselves the full benefits of their inexperience." And they often do it in the pages of Rolling Stone. Last week, the magazine posted a mini-manifesto...

  • Escaping the rat maze of the welfare state

    This week marks the 50th anniversary of Lyndon Johnson's "War on Poverty," and as the joke goes, "Poverty won." Five decades after a blizzard of programs began descending on the American people, the poverty rate remains essentially unchanged. That's a...
  • 'Net neutrality' ruling could be costly for consumers, advocates say

    A federal appeals court swept aside government regulations designed to ensure equal access to the Internet, raising the prospects of higher fees for consumers and more barriers for start-ups seeking to compete online. The decision Tuesday could allow...
  • The media and Chris Christie: Going overboard in New Jersey

    What a bizarre spectacle. Assuming he did not lie during his marathon news conference last week, the feeding frenzy surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be remembered as one of those incredibly odd moments of elite journalistic hysteria that...
  • President's poll numbers give Dems the midterm blues

    It wasn't supposed to be like this. At the end of 2013, the Washington Post's electoral number-crunchers calculated that the Democrats had a 1 percent chance to win back the House of Representatives. Barely into 2014, that already seems pretty...
  • New leader of Indian capital abandons sit-in

    NEW DELHI – The populist, controversial new leader of India’s capital city on Tuesday called off a two-day sit-in that had snarled traffic, created headaches and raised questions about his upstart party’s national aspirations. Arvind...
