(Thursday, September 7, 12:52 PM | By: Chris Matthews)

  • Democrats and Republicans sparred during a Senate Banking Committee hearing Thursday over the causes of rising home-insurance rates and deductibles and the trend of some insurance companies abandoning markets in states like California and Florida where they believe its no longer profitable to operate.

Wilmington News Journal LaRose: Brown stands in the way of small town Ohio

(Thursday, September 7, 7:38 AM | By: news engin)

  • For more than two years now, inflation has outpaced wages under President Biden and Sherrod Brown. In fact, earnings have fallen each month since Biden-Brown passed their $1.9 trillion ‘stimulus.’ Sixty-one percent of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Ohioans are undeniably worse off and it’s hurting working class families the most.
  • Even more hypocritical is Brown’s all-out regulatory war on the oil and gas industry. Oil and gas jobs provide income for more than 350,000 Ohioans and reliable power for everyone else. Unfortunately President Biden and Sherrod Brown have placed these workers in their sights, pushing aggressive anti-fossil fuel development rules that threaten to put them out of work.
