Now read this:Those Praising Hagel Now Opposed Him As SecDef And Are Using Him To Bash Obama (Nov 24, 2014) What Reagan And Bush Did […]

The White House today held a “Summit on Working Families.”  We lag behind Western Europe in providing benefits for working mothers and fathers.  But doesn’t the Western European system cost too much, you ask?  Jonathan Cohn answers: The data, however, tell a more complicated story.
