The president elect has been pursuing an “all-star” cast for his cabinet. It’s missing one person.

The ‘War on Povety” has been an unmitigated disaster. We never learn, no matter how bad the outcome. We simply double down and believe more welfare will be better.
This is a true Tea Party agenda that should be the Republican agenda, and the true American Kennedy Democrat agenda.
