FROM Mark Rank
The Growing Problem of Hunger in a Struggling Economy The Great Recession has increased the number of Americans who depend on food stamps and food banks to get enough to eat. What kind of food do they get? Do food stamps carry a stigma and create dependency at the same time? Do private charities allow government to avoid dealing directly with the causes of poverty?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
