Lanhee Chen: We Can Overcome This Crisis Together

There’s something important that all of us can do to stop the spread of coronavirus.

It’s not convenient, and it’s not necessarily fun. But it will save lives. What is it? Try your best to stay at home.

You can still take walks outside with others in your family, shop for essentials, or get take-out from a local restaurant.

And there’s also plenty we can do to stay connected to others: Check in on your loved ones and friends frequently, give to people in need in your community—supplies for food pantries, financial donations, personal hygiene items.

Buy online gift certificates to your favorite local stores and restaurants — and use them when this is over.

If you’re going to spread anything, spread help, compassion and humor. Above all, do not panic. Remember: Like all outbreaks, this too will eventually end.

Focused and united, we can avoid the worst possibilities. It’s up to all of us. As a country, we can overcome this crisis together.

David Davenport: The Democrats’ Go Big Or Go Home Problem

Have you noticed the Democrats’ new message? It’s “go big or go home.” Elizabeth Warren says we need “big structural change.” Bernie Sanders agrees, saying no “half measures.” Nearly all the candidates have jumped on the bandwagon, favoring Medicare for all, free college and a massive Green New Deal.

But there’s a problem: Americans don’t trust big government.

A Pew Research study showed that only 17 percent trust government to do what is right. 75 percent believe trust in the federal government is shrinking. A new book titled “Good Enough for Government Work,” argues the American people do not trust government officials, finding their programs inefficient and ineffective.

Republicans should be the party of incremental change. Their climate change ideas about innovation, research and plastic waste are a great example.

According to the American people, the era of big government should be over.

Albert Mohler: Switzerland Criminalizing Public Expressions of Christian Orthodoxy?

The news coming out of Switzerland should have our attention—where 63 percent of voters decided to criminalize public homophobia.

What are we looking at is a species of hate speech legislation—a law criminalizing certain speech. In an intellectually dishonest move, the Swiss government authorities assured voters that even though this is a curtailment of the freedom of speech, it is not actually a curtailment of free speech.

Yes: It’s a contradictory argument, but it also points to the very heart of the problem with hate speech legislation.

In fact: On the other side of this vast sexual and moral revolution, a traditional defense of biblical Christianity could well now be defined as a criminal act in Switzerland.

Any exemptions we see will not long last because of the logic of this legislation—and that is to declare that anything short of the total public comprehensive embrace of the LGBTQ movement—is a form of hatred.

Lanhee Chen: Democrats Push Single-Payer Health Care Plan

Democrats this week are holding a hearing to discuss legislation that would impose a single-payer, government-run health care system on every American.

Not only do they want to take away the health care you have and like, but they want to put government bureaucrats in charge of your medical decisions—all while putting an end to the innovation and dynamism that has made the American health care system the finest in the world.

They claim it will save money and improve service, but the only thing it will actually increase are taxes and wait times for quality care. They also claim it will make things easier for Americans, but when’s the last time you had an “easier” experience when dealing with the DMV or another government agency?

The better course is to introduce more choice, competition, and transparency into our health care system. That will lower cost and expand access to care for more Americans.
