MERRILLVILLE | Four company leaders received the region's most prestigious business honor Friday: induction into the Northwest Indiana Business and Industry Hall of Fame.
U.S. Rep Todd Rokita is this week's special guest on the Political Roundtable.
There's something eerie about writing about the federal budget for the Ides of March, considering all the political backstabbing going on right now. But there are good things happening in regard to the federal budget, too.
Indiana, like other states, is trying to figure out how to comply with the federal law compelling states to expand Medicaid eligibility so more uninsured Americans get health care coverage. There's a catch, though, because states pay a portion of the cost of Medicaid.
One of the great Indiana success stories of the past decade is what we’ve accomplished in the area of education reform. I am always proud to tell the story of our state’s success in Washington, D.C., and now, as I begin my service as chairman of the U.S. House Subcommittee on Early Childhood…
If Congress and President Barack Obama were serious about wanting to stimulate the economy, the best thing they could do is end the uncertainty over taxes and spending. If you don't believe me, just listen to some local business leaders.
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.
When we were kids, we played "kick the can" but soon tired of it. That just shows how childish Congress has been lately, continuing to postpone its fiscal cliff deadline rather than completing the task.
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 | A Munster native was selected Wednesday to lead the U.S. House subcommittee overseeing early childhood, elementary and secondary education.
From a political perspective, the decade-long "Mitch Daniels era" has been devastating for Indiana Democrats.
The Indiana congressional delegation has been bleeding seniority, a coveted asset in Capitol Hill.
As the hours tick down to Tuesday's elections, Republican Joel Phelps remains optimistic that Northwest Indiana voters will pick him to replace Democrat Pete Visclosky in the U.S. House.
INDIANAPOLIS | As the presidential contenders prepare for their first debate tonight, U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Indianapolis, said he doesn't believe the swing-state voter surveys that suggest President Barack Obama is likely to defeat his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
If you are an American – whether a Republican, Democrat or independent – Mitt Romney’s selection of House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan to the ticket is the best thing that could have happened in this critical campaign.
INDIANAPOLIS | State officials have finalized the sale of former money manager Marcus Shrenker's stunt plane, with profits from the sale to be used as restitution to his ponzi scheme victims.
INDIANAPOLIS | The U.S. Supreme Court may be done dealing with Obamacare (for now), but the U.S. Congress is just getting (re-)started.
INDIANAPOLIS | The response from Hoosiers to Gov. Mitch Daniels' appointment as president of Purdue University has been overwhelmingly positive.
INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana and Illinois lawmakers reacted along party lines Friday to President Barack Obama's decision to halt deportations and provide work permits to undocumented immigrants who came to the country at a young age.
INDIANAPOLIS | As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to rule on the constitutionality of Obamacare, two Hoosier Republicans are standing by with plans to reshape the nation's health system.
