What’s kept the economy in low gear and the unemployment rate stubbornly high has been the shrinking of government workforces: cops, teachers and other valuable public employees let go in the face of inadequate tax revenue. Most of these layoffs occurred at the state and local levels, but a vigorous federal response could have prevented them.

A heavy tax burden means consumers have less of their income to spend in the economy and businesses have less for hiring, expansion and investment. So when taxes go up, the rate of economic growth goes down.

No one argues that increasing the minimum wage increases the number of unemployed workers who find jobs. In the end, the trade-off is clear. People who keep their jobs get more money; those who lose their jobs, or fail to get new ones, suffer.

By allowing the minimum wage to remain at a nearly unlivable level, we have deemed certain jobs not worthy enough to meet even our country’s minimum standard of living.

Extremism in the Middle East and northern Africa may be fed by our military presence in that part of the world. Our interests may suffer precisely because of our presence.

The 43 percent of U.S. voters who think that America is “too involved” in the Middle East, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, or the 58 percent who think that we should “leave things alone” in the Islamic world have it backward.

If Secretary Clinton’s approval numbers are this high during a month in which she endured a hostile congressional grilling over Benghazi, there is no reason to expect that the incident is going to plague her in any meaningful way.

Last year, on 9/11, Secretary Clinton finally got that “3 a.m. phone call.” Her failure to answer leaves a permanent black mark on her record.

Today, the depth of the Sandy Hook tragedy makes it seem almost inevitable that there will be a dramatically increased police presence, perhaps even armed, in our nation’s schools. Yet a student of history cannot help but wonder if we are once again being drawn down an ineffective and counterproductive path.
