After Comey Firing, Congress Gives Up on Checks and Balances

The Constitution calls for three separate and coequal branches of government, each operating independently of each other, and each with their own powers—and limitations.

The GOP’s New Obamacare Repeal Deal Would Give States More Choice—But Only With Federal Permission
