The legal justification for President Biden’s student loan forgiveness measure is flimsy at best and non-existent at worst.
If Gov. Ned Lamont spent any time looking at the Inflation Reduction Act, he would know that it does nothing to combat inflation.
In Connecticut, abortion is a lay-up. Objective, thoughtful debate on the merits of this important issue is soundly and righteously rejected by the political majority with little protest from the political minority.
It happens this way in Connecticut every time: Party leaders deliberately drop a huge bill, hundreds upon hundreds of pages long, on the desks of legislative members without anywhere enough time to understand what they are voting on.
Just like the separation of church and state contained in the Constitution’s First Amendment, subjects concerning politics or political views should be kept out of public schools.
The SCSB was born like many laws and entities: as a political necessity in 2007 to “do something” after a scandal, horrendous crime, or disaste
