IRS still hasn’t gotten rid of policy it used to target tea partyers

The same policy that enabled authorities at the IRS to slow-roll the tax-exempt-status applications of tea-party groups remains on the books, according to a watchdog group. The Daily Caller has the story: The federal tax agency’s policy requires IRS officials to stop processing tax-exempt applications that are “likely to attract media or congressional attention,” the Cause of Action Institute said in a report made public Wednesday. The policy also directs IRS officials to prepare “sensitive case reports” for their supervisors and to ignore “the merits of the application” if it involved a newsworthy topic. “Targeting was — ...

The Washington Examiner has the story: The attorney general, speaking to an audience filled with law enforcement, said the administration will work to support police.

President Trump: ‘Real and positive immigration reform is possible’

Trump Tuesday during his first joint address to Congress said his goals for immigration reform “will have many benefits” and that it’s possible to achieve his goals for immigration reform if members of Congress come together. The Hill has the details: Switching away from this current system of lower-skilled immigration, and instead adopting a merit-based system, will have many benefits:  it will save countless dollars, raise workers' wages, and help struggling families –- including immigrant families –- enter the middle class.

The Washington Times has the commentary: Congress is on recess this week, and recess usually means more interaction with constituents and more engagements in forums and dialogues with constituents. Or, at least, that is what it has historically ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: President Trump could ‘go down as one of the greats’ if he rallies Congress around entitlement reform

President Donald J. Trump recognized on the campaign trail that spending beyond our means is a problem and he appears to be coming around to the idea that we will never rein in our national debt unless we address non-discretionary spending like social security and Medicare. The Washington Times has the commentary: Despite campaign rhetoric indicating his opposition to such efforts, recent signs indicate a growing recognition on his part that such spending reforms would be not only good, but also necessary. If he can find a way to use his legendary deal-making skills to bring polarized political elites together to fashion a long-term reform of our ...
