Jerusalem: UN resolution rejects Trump’s declaration


The votes for the resolution from powerful US allies, such as France, Germany and the UK, could be seen as a slap in the face for President Trump – but all would argue that they simply voted in line with the existing status quo at the UN. There was no pressing reason for them to switch from this stance.

The Republican Tax Bill Will Devastate Science


I have great faith in our nation’s scientists and engineers.  I have seen what we can accomplish when we put the best and brightest in a room together and give them the resources they need to solve tough scientific, engineering and mathematical problems to better our society.  We can make substantial scientific progress if we choose to make it a priority. I will continue to fight for continued investments in these and other critical programs to ensure the United States maintains our global scientific leadership. Our country is too good to forsake a brighter future for everyone in the name of tax cuts for the few at the top.
