Harve Daily News: HHS junior tapped as Dems vice chair

Seems like every time I turn on the TV, I see another pundit or politician calling for greater American military intervention in response to ISIS, or heading to war with Iran, or cleaning up after some other conflict around the world.

While these threats are real and must be taken seriously, America can no longer afford to go it alone.

We spend billions overseas every year and put thousands of young American men and women in harm’s way. And we pay for it by taking out new loans — mostly from foreign countries like China and Japan.

In the meantime, our allies are free to invest significantly more in public education, in health care, in infrastructure, in research and development, and in lower taxes.

We should be making those investments. But the budgets passed this week by the majority in Congress don’t.

Montanans believe marriage is a fundamental right

The Supreme Court has already struck down the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act. Thirty-seven states — including Montana — legally recognize the right of same-sex couples to marry.

And next week on April 28th, the Supreme Court will hear a series of cases that could finally extend those rights to every American.

Montanans believe in personal freedom and the right to make a good life for our families. No one can tell us who we are allowed to love or who we can marry. That’s our business and ours alone.

Montanans, and a majority of Americans, believe that marriage is a fundamental right that should be extended to all Americans, regardless of creed or sexual orientation.
