Can You Guess the U.S. State With the Highest Taxes? (Hint: It's Not California.) | Fox Business: If you live and work in the U.S., you're probably aware that taxes are simply a part of life. But the amount you ultimately pay isn't just based on how much you earn; it's also based on where you reside.

While California tends to get a bad rap when it comes to local taxes, it's actually not even close to being this year's greatest offender on the tax front. According to 2016 data out of WalletHub, the state with the highest taxes is actually none other than New York. California, meanwhile, didn't even make the top 10, though some of the states that did may surprise you.

On Thursday, Obama pinned much of the blame for the high court's 4-4 split decision on Senate Republicans' unwillingness to confirm his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, and on House Republicans for blocking a Senate-passed bipartisan immigration overhaul bill in 2013.

Which Is the Greater Evil -- Terrorism or Governments' Response to It?

Which Is the Greater Evil -- Terrorism or Governments' Response to It?: Governments can maintain greater legitimacy among their populace and be more effective combating terrorism if they harness the collective power of their people in fighting it, rather than operating under the premise that it is their people who are the source of the problem. Political leaders often use terrorism, or the threat of terrorism, to repress civil liberties, censor media outlets, and promote their own political and military agendas. In some countries, the mere threat of a terrorist attack has become a means to manipulate nationalist sentiment, which enables political leaders to pursue their own agendas. The consequences are usually negative for citizens, and this raises the question, which is the greater threat: the prospect of a terrorist attack or a government’s response to it?

In the speech, Nadler said he's "one of the most concerned people" about due process rights, citing his opposition to the Patriot Act. However, he argues banning people on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns, with no notification and no trial, does not deny them those rights.
