Raising taxes will destroy jobs

On the heels of a messy withdrawal in Afghanistan that appears more like a surrender to the Taliban and a weak August jobs report, the Biden administration is asking the few remaining moderate Democrats to pass Sen. Bernie Sanders' multitrillion-dollar, tax-and-spend package upon their return to Congress from the August recess.

Public servants didn't suffer like rest

The Democratic Party loves spending trillions of dollars we don't have and then just raising the debt ceiling to "cover" the constant shortfall. Michael McKenna ("Let the incompetent Democrats own the shutdown," Web, Sept. 6) is right that the Republicans should not help the Democrats avoid a government shutdown by supporting foolish appropriations and their $3.5-trillion reconciliation package.

Where does virus fit into 'movie'?

In my opinion this is not the time to impeach President Joe Biden. It is time overdue, instead, to arrest him and try him for treason.

Contrasts between Truman and Biden

I grew up with genuine respect for President Harry S. Truman, a Democrat and the man left to fill the shoes of President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the end of World War II.

Drug policy reform needs more than marijuana legalization

In jurisdictions across the U.S., we have seen progressive policy reforms to decriminalize and legalize marijuana, reduce penalties for other drugs, and move toward a public health approach to drug use.
