Got Putin, yet? PDF Print

WASHINGTON — The new “agreement” between Russia, the U.S. and our allies is exactly what the former KGB agent ordered.

This isn’t to say it’s not a good “prospect” for ending tensions in Ukraine, as President Obama has said. But neither should it surprise anyone that Vladimir Putin is willing to step back from that country — not to ease economic sanctions but to satisfy his own designs.

The handwriting was on the palm of Nina Khrushcheva’s hand, not that she needs notes.

WASHINGTON — In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the “Late Show,” CBS has waged war on America’s heartland — or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

I believe in the power of expanded exports to spur the creation of good jobs, but at the same time, it is critical that we enforce the international rules of trade. When our competitors manipulate markets, engage in illegal dumping, or raise barriers to trade, the United States must take action on behalf of Ohio workers, farmers, and service providers.

Enforcing our trade laws is not a partisan issue. It is a jobs issue and I am proud to stand with the people I represent when their jobs are threatened by the illegal trade practices of our competitors.

The last few weeks, I’ve been working with my colleagues in the Senate to secure an extension of long-term unemployment benefits that is paid for and will help Ohioans who are still struggling in this economy. I wish we didn’t need an extension at all, but even five years after the recession officially ended, too many of our friends and neighbors are still out of a job. In fact, the number of those who have been searching for work for at least six months remains at historically high levels, far above even what we’ve seen at the height of previous recessions.

An unemployment extension is not a moment for celebration; it’s a moment for reflection on what hasn’t worked in the past to spur job creation for the American people and what we can do better in the future.

A presidential budget is many things. It is a chance for the President to declare his priorities, to highlight his initiatives, and to offer reforms of how our government does business. But most importantly of all, it is a chance for the President to lead on the fiscal issues of the day. We certainly need that leadership now.
