Lanhee Chen: A Study in Contrasts

Tuesday night’s presidential debate was a study in contrasts: The accomplishments of a president over the last 47 months, against a politician who’s been in politics for 47 years.

Two more presidential debates are scheduled in the coming weeks, and the task for President Trump is clear: He must continue to emphasize his accomplishments while sharing more with the American people about his plans for the next four years.

The president has plans to lower the cost of health care and make our health care system more accessible and transparent; plans to lower taxes for middle-income Americans, while continuing to cut red tape for job creators and entrepreneurs; and plans to hold China accountable for its misdeeds and address other geopolitical challenges around the world.

Looking ahead, President Trump should spend more time emphasizing these plans and talking about where he would lead the country in a second term. That’s a recipe for winning not only the debates and the undecided voter—but perhaps the election too.

Jerry Bowyer: A Vacancy on the Court and a Spending Pattern We Cannot Afford

Democrats and the media are attacking Republicans for pushing ahead with a new Supreme Court nominee while, allegedly, dragging their feet on a coronavirus relief bill.

There’s just one problem: the coronavirus bill put forward by Democrats is a dangerous expansion of the federal government that puts our economy at even more risk of fiscal collapse.

Though we don’t hear about it much anymore, the United States’ debt-to-GDP ratio has increased dramatically in the 21st century. When George W. Bush took office, we had a debt ratio of under 60 percent. Today, we have a debt ratio of over 100 percent—107 percent to be precise.

In simple English, that means our government owes more than our entire economy produces in a year. America simply cannot afford more of these immense spending bills.

Republicans are right to reject the Democrat’s short-sighted, ridiculous proposal. Imagine the spending binge if Democrats gain the presidency too.

Albert Mohler: We Need Judge Barrett

What happens now? President Trump made history by nominating Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. That is fantastic news. But now the scene shifts to the United States Senate. The rules of the Senate call for hearings before the Judiciary Committee. Watch for those in coming weeks—and expect a political blockbuster.

Then, the committee votes to move the nomination to the floor of the Senate. That, too, will be a fight. Then Senate debate and the big event—the vote. It will be a battle at every turn, and Democrats will try their best to slow it down. Republicans must keep up the heat, and see it through to the end—the future of the Supreme Court is at stake.

We need Judge Barrett on the Supreme Court now.
