Letter: GOP tax plan would harm state’s poor, working class

The Republicans in the Georgia General Assembly are again reminding us what their real priorities are by pushing for a restructure of the tax code next year.

Tom Crawford: Transparency for tax breaks is heartburn for politicians

The phrase "GASB 77" is not just a random collection of letters and numbers. It is an accounting regulation that applies to state and local governments and could potentially cause massive headaches for elected officials.

Editorial: Candidates are driven by polls, not ideas

It's more than three months before anyone will cast a vote in the Iowa caucuses, and another month beyond that when Georgians will weigh in on who should be the nation's 45th president.

Charles Krauthammer: It’s already game over for the Democrats

I repeat: Unless she's indicted, Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic nomination. I wrote that six weeks ago, amid fevered dreams of a Clinton collapse and a Joe Biden rescue. That those were a mirage is all the more obvious after Tuesday's debate. The reason, then as now, is simple: Clinton has no competition.

Editorial: 'Yes' vote on E-SPLOST is a pennywise choice

It's not hard to make a case to boost public spending for schools. Among all of the government-funded needs, education ranks near the top, along with public safety, in the eyes of most taxpayers as vital services that can't be done on the cheap. As long as local school systems keep growing, the need for more infrastructure, equipment and teachers remains a high priority.

Jonah Goldberg: How Biden bid could help Hillary Clinton's campaign

The scuttlebutt in Washington is that Vice President Joe Biden is going to throw his hat into the presidential race, which means there is at least a 50 percent chance that he will. I mean, when is the Beltway scuttlebutt ever wrong?
