It's that time of year. I’m thankful …
Everyone knows Congress is dysfunctional. U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, knows this well. He offered his insights Monday to The Times Editorial Board and on the nwi.com Political Roundtable.
What we’re seeing in Indiana and nationally is a Republican Party that doesn’t recognize it lost the crucial rubber match.
The images we saw last week are grotesque, disturbing, heartbreaking and might be just a preview of things to come.
There's a lot riding on the immigration reform proposals now before Congress, and not just for immigrants.
INDIANAPOLIS | The U.S. Justice Department seizure of reporter telephone records likely would be a crime if Gov. Mike Pence had won passage of the federal media shield law he championed in Congress.
INDIANAPOLIS | A third European nation is set to honor former U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar, R-Ind., for his international relations achievements, and work toward nuclear disarmament.
“Brian, we’re going to get hit again. It’s going to happen. I just hope when it happens, I’m not in Washington.”
For the life of me, I don’t see how expanded background checks for gun purchases is an assault on the 2nd Amendment. Yet that is the phrase we hear over and over from the Indiana congressional delegation.
MERRILLVILLE | Four company leaders received the region's most prestigious business honor Friday: induction into the Northwest Indiana Business and Industry Hall of Fame.
MERRILLVILLE | Former U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar attributes his four decades of negotiating success with national and international leaders in part to the skills he learned on his earliest campaign trips to Northwest Indiana.
Chris Chocola is not a clown.
On New Year's Day, Indiana's four freshman members of the U.S. House voted against the so-called fiscal cliff deal. If the deal hadn't passed — and it did by a 257 to 167 margin — most middle class families would have seen their taxes go up somewhere in the $2,000- to $3,000-a-year range.
INDIANAPOLIS | Demonstrating the bipartisanship he's promised will define his tenure in office, U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., was sworn in Thursday with two of Indiana's former U.S. senators — Republican Dick Lugar and Democrat Evan Bayh — standing beside him.
INDIANAPOLIS | Three months ago, well before the United States sailed over the fiscal cliff, U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Merrillville, told The Times he expected Congress would "at best, kick the can down the road" on taxes and spending.
INDIANAPOLIS | For the first time in a generation, U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar, R-Ind., will not be seated at his desk in the ornate Senate chamber when a new Congress convenes on Thursday.
From a political perspective, the decade-long "Mitch Daniels era" has been devastating for Indiana Democrats.
Dick Lugar set a record as the longest-serving U.S. senator in Indiana history, yet his career can be summed up in a single word: visionary. During 50 years in Indiana politics his chief concern was never the next election but the next generation and the common good.
I'm impressed by Dick Lugar's classy exit from the U.S. Senate. It brings back memories of Evan Bayh's departure just two years ago.
INDIANAPOLIS | U.S. Sen.-elect Joe Donnelly learned Wednesday he'll be a member of the Armed Forces, Agriculture and Aging committees when the U.S. Senate convenes next month.
