FOREIGN POLICY

I saw a sign on a car the other day, it said, “I don’t care what you believe, just support our troops.”  I thought that’s interesting, who can be against that, or yellow ribbons? The problem is that it’s so vacuous and distracts...

TAXES

Over 210,000 more jobs have been added since 2011 and more Minnesotans are working than ever before. But for some Minnesotans, it can feel like stagnation. We must restore our values to our tax code. We want a tax code...
