The Silver-Tongued Liars’ Playbook

Paul Driessen, Coal-fired power plant scrubbers now remove 80-90 % of airborne particulate, mercury, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and other pollutants.

Republican Business Tax Reform: Less Government in Businesses’ Wallets – and Yours

Seton Motley, Congress hasn’t done major tax reform since 1986.  We are WAY past due.  And it is WAY past necessary.
