Summer Economy (2018)

In June, unemployment in the U.S. rose from 3.8 percent to 4 percent.  Did it have anything to do with President Trump’s tariffs on aluminum and steel?  The economy is strong.  It could be stronger, and might have to be—through the removal of tariffs.

Conservative writer Jonah Goldberg is right:  Why are our trade deals so bad if, as Trump says, America is making impressive foreign investments?

I wish our progress against the federal deficit was impressive.  Medicare administrators want you to know that Medicare will be insolvent by 2026.  Social Security?  2034.  Better generate that revenue (and then some).  The more jobs, the better.  America, pay your bills!
