Jayson Lusk: Oh, SNAP!

Blue Oregon: Peeling back the onion on the agriculture sector’s opposition to the new Oregon minimum wage law.

Lawyers, Guns and Money: Jeffrey Toobin perfectly sums up Antonin Scalia.

TaxVox: When it comes to the size of their tax cuts, Trump, Rubio and Cruz are way out-Reaganing Reagan.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
”I've been asked if I have any regrets. Well, I do. The deficit is one.” (President Ronald Reagan, January 11, 1989.)
