How to lose a trade agenda (Guest Voice)

How to lose a trade agenda by Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group Columnist WASHINGTON — Let’s suppose you are trying to bring a friend around to your point of view. Would you tell her she’s emotional, illogical, outdated and not very smart? Would you complain that he’s being dishonest, fabricating falsehoods and denying reality with his knee-jerk response? Such a method of a persuasion is likelier to...

2016 already bought and paid for

Greg Sargent is pretty sure the Republicans have wrapped up the 2016 election …in dollar bills. The Federal Election Commission has all but given up. Over the weekend, the New York Times published a sobering interview with the head of the Federal Election Commission, who confirmed that she had largely given up on the agency playing a meaningful role in restraining fundraising and spending abuses in the 2016 campaign.

Experience Counts

In politics, as in every other field, experience counts, and in fact may be the most important quality a candidate for an important post possesses. This is even more true for the presidency than any other position. Certainly, there are some things one can learn on the job, but a certain level of sophistication and experience are necessary in a president for his or her administration to be successful.

The 50 States of Workers’ Comp Laws

It would be a mistake to think that we live in one country. In point of fact, the United States is nothing less than a collection of 50 small countries, each with their own cultures, idiosyncrasies and, of course, laws. Recreational marijuana, for example, is legal in just four states: Colorado, Washington, Alaska, and Oregon. But in Pennsylvania, our state senate seems to be making no progress at all; they’re still bickering about...

McDonald’s, Coca-Cola scrambling to connect with health-conscious millennials

There may be no more American a meal than a Big Mac washed down by a Coke, but the companies behind the menu are facing some big question marks as they try to stay relevant in an increasingly Chipotle-and-bottled-water world.
