Americans ready for tax reform, survey says

  U.S. tax-policy reform is on the forefront of Americans minds this year, according to a recent survey – which is not surprising as real-unemployment numbers remain abysmal and Americans continue to tighten their belts. CNBC has the story: That's the finding of a recent survey of 1,040 individuals conducted by WalletHub, a provider of free credit scores and reports. Nearly 57 percent of participants said that "tax fairness" — what people should pay and how much — was more important than "whatever is best for the economy," which garnered close to 23 percent… "Consumers are spending more than they should over the past few ...

Irony Alert: The Budget Blame Game has Already Started

Over the last several weeks, many Republicans and most Democrats have said the media will blame the GOP for any government shutdown that takes place over the funding of Obamacare. Never mind that all fiscal conservatives want to keep the government running, with the exception of Obamacare – and therein lies a distinct note of irony for Republicans worried about the blame game: the media is already scapegoating Republicans, more than a month in advance of when the 2013 fiscal year ends. Consider just a few examples in mainstream media publications: Politico: They’d never say it publicly. But catch many Democrats in an honest moment and they ...

It’s been 4 years – and the Tea Party has already impacted Washington

Join us as we celebrate our 4th Anniversary with the 4Years4Liberty Money Bomb! In 2009, a spontaneous political movement swept the country. Yet the media and Washington ignored it. After all, Republicans and Democrats have run the country for over a century – what could a few million protesting citizens do? In 2010, they found out. As Tea Party Patriots’ newest video reminds us, Washington was taken by storm in the mid-term elections. While not all of the newly elected Members of Congress were Tea Party-minded, the elections showed that it is indeed the people who, if they choose, are in charge of Washington. For better or worse, ...

It’s been Long Enough Already! We need a Budget Now!

The Congress of the United States is broken.  Yesterday there was a six-hour farce on the floor of the Senate to supposedly consider five different budget proposals. 57 Senators (including Senators from both parties) voted “no” on all five budgets. Four of the proposed budgets were Republican budgets and included Congressman Paul Ryan’s House-passed budget (which got 1 more vote this year than it got last year for a total of 41), and three offered by Republican Senators, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, and Rand Paul. The Democrat budget - the President’s Budget proposal - went down to a 0-99 defeat. In fact, the President’s budget did not get a ...

Texas sheriff at expense of constituent safety narrows list of reasons to honor ICE detainer

The Lone Star State’s Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez trimmed the list of criminal offenses Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials give as justification to detain illegal immigrants, instructing her deputies to honor only a handful of the listed offenses and thereby excluding from detention an illegal immigrant accused of sexually abusing a young girl. The Daily Signal has the details: The sheriff’s new policy stipulated that only four exempted crimes—murder, capital murder, aggravated sexual assault, and human trafficking—would be grounds for her department to honor an ICE detainer. Unfortunately for the alleged victim of ...
