Like many institutions in government, the Federal Reserve has dramatically increased in size and scope since its inception.

Right before the U.S. House of Representatives went into August recess, legislation was introduced that would block abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) guarantees eligible parents 12 weeks […]

That said, on Wednesday night, there was an interesting exchange on the Hyde Amendment […]


The fertility rate in the United States is at an all-time low, according to a National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) report which came out last week.

Expanding a 2016 ban on city-funded employee travel to certain locations, San Francisco will now also prohibit employees from taking paid travel to states that are pro-life.

On Thursday, the House of Representatives passed a new budget agreement that would explode federal spending by an additional $320 billion over two years in a bipartisan vote.
