May 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

There is no good outcome here. Either there is now compelling evidence that the president committed a serious abuse of power, or the nation's leading press outlets are dupes for a vindictive, misleading story.feedback

A 15 percent tax rate would be a huge win for our members. Our members pay the highest effective tax rate of any sector in the country. That would be like making our tax go from 35 percent to 100 percent. We don't want to be in the position of killing tax reform. The choice is easy for us.feedback

If Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution means anything, it means that the president must obtain congressional approval before taking us to war against a sovereign nation that has not attacked the U.S. or its allies and is not threatening to attack the U.S. or its allies.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

There is no reason to forego congressional debate now, just as there was no reason to forego congressional debate when Obama considered taking the nation to war against Syria in 2013. Congressional approval is not only constitutional, it serves the public purpose of requiring a president to clearly outline the justifications for war and his goals for the conflict. It also helps secure public support for war, and in this instance it strikes me as reckless that we would not only go to war against a sovereign nation, we'd also court a possible military encounter with a great power.feedback

In the face of limited U.S. manufacturing, America's small retailers rely heavily on imports and do not have the ability to cut their prices or pass along these increased costs to consumers. For example, specialty apparel stores, which import approximately 97 percent of their inventory, would end up with a tax bill that is three-to-five times larger than their profits and would have to raise their prices by 15 percent or more to maintain current profitability.feedback

Feb 15 2017

This is a plan that we think is risky and unproven. We would urge them to reconsider this approach.feedback

Dec 09 2016

Andrew Puzder is someone with the real-world experience to understand workforce issues and how jobs are created.feedback

Nov 23 2016
