Fact Check: Trump Says Clinton Will Raise Middle-Class Taxes

"She's raising your taxes really high. She is raising your taxes and I'm lowering your taxes. That in itself is a big difference," Donald Trump says in second presidential debate w/ Hillary Clinton.

Trump Wins

(John Hinderaker) Some of the rats might want to consider returning to the ship. Donald Trump came through pretty well tonight, mainly because the focus was on the issues. As long as issues are being discussed, Trump wins. The moderators came out of the box with questions about Trump's 2005 video, which many people expected to be the centerpiece of tonight's debate. The effort flopped, I thought. Bill and Hillary Clinton took

Trump Won, I Guess?

I think Donald Trump won. He seemed more focused than in the first debate. He didn't go off the rails, as he easily could have given his … difficulties this week.

(Steven Hayward) I started noodling on a few "What if" thoughts about this long election cycle the other day, but the one on my mind this afternoon is this: What if the electoral college actually worked the way the framers intended—as a gathering of eminent citizens who would pick a good man to be president, rather than a Byzantine mechanism merely for channeling a popular majority? Remember, in most states you aren't

Industrial robots will replace manufacturing jobs — and that's a good thing

Photo: Echo/Getty Images There is no denying that the U.S. and Canada have been losing jobs to offshore competition for almost half a century. From 2000-2010 alone, 5.6 million jobs disappeared. Interestingly, though, only 13 percent of those jobs were lost due to international trade; 85 percent of job losses stemmed from "productivity growth" — another way of saying machines replacing human workers.
