Now is the time for SNAP reform

By Natalia Castro Mandatory spending has gotten out of hand, with programs such as food stamps costing Americans billions, while their recipients rarely give back to the economic growth of the nation.

A freshman steps up to lead on Obamacare repeal

Without repeal, Medicaid expansion wastes money on able-bodied, working-age adults at expense of seniors

By Natalia Castro The Obamacare replacement bill is dead, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has now presented a partial repeal bill in its stead, akin to the 2015 legislation vetoed by former President Barack Obama, H.R. 3762.
