Ramesh Ponnuru: 16 questions Hillary should answer

lacrossetribune.com — As her campaign for the presidency kicked off, Hillary Clinton managed to go 27 days without answering a question from the press. On Tuesday, she broke that streak. Here are a few questions reporters might want to ask the next time she decides to give her prospective subjects an opportunity to get unscripted answers from her.

Obamacare's Assumptions | National Review Online

nationalreview.com — As Wesley Smith notes below, the New York Times is flagging a story about the drafting of Obamacare that supposedly undermines the plaintiffs in King v. Burwell and related cases. Author Robert Pear sees it that way, too, noting that nobody with whom he spoke intended to restrict subsidies to state-established exchanges as a way to make the states establish them.

The Pitfalls of ‘Pro-Family’ Regulations

nationalreview.com — Perhaps the most successful way to devise policies that help working families but avoid unintended consequences, people who study the issue say, is to make them gender neutral. In places like Sweden and Quebec, for instance, parental leave policies encourage both men and women to take time off for a new baby.

Rubio on Iraq | National Review Online

nationalreview.com — Some observers have said that Senator Rubio "dodged" and refused to give "a clear and direct answer" to Chris Wallace yesterday. I think he was pretty clear: If we had known there were no WMD, we would not have gone to war, but it "was not a mistake for the president to go into Iraq based on the information [Bush] had as president."

The immigration wages fallacy

charlotteobserver.com — Does immigration hurt American wages? Some Republican presidential candidates seem to think so. Rick Santorum wants to reduce legal immigration by 25 percent to boost wages. Scott Walker has hinted that he'd support something similar. Because Walker's a top-tier candidate, his comments have led to some shocked reactions.

Free trade opponents get less logical by the day

miamiherald.com — Elizabeth Warren's arguments "don't stand the test of fact and scrutiny." The Democratic senator is "absolutely wrong." She's being "a politician like everybody else." So says President Barack Obama, who sounds like he's surprised to learn these things. Obama is miffed with Warren for opposing him on two pending trade bills.
