Portman, a leader on fiscal issues, should get more airtime

Today's Politico story on Sen. Rob Portman's role in the debt negotiations shines a rare light on one of the most talented freshmen in Washington today. The term "freshman" hardly seems to fit Portman, given his previous service in the House and his roles as President George W. Bush's trade representative and then budget director. The Politico article reminded me of this National Review piece from May, which focused on Portman and his much-overlooked jobs agenda that he released in the spring. As the NR article points out, Portman's jobs agenda is pretty boilerplate: tax cuts, a balanced ...

The full text of the Athens Messenger op-ed can be found below.  “I spent a recent Saturday visiting the Rural Women’s Addiction Recovery Bassett House near Athens. I was pleased to see firsthand all of the impressive work being done at that recovery facility, and to meet with some of the courageous women in recovery there. “Drug addiction is at crisis levels in Ohio.
