Trump’s proposed tax cuts, which include slashing personal income-tax rates and the corporate tax. The Washington Times has the story: House leaders have said they want to pass a tax package in 2017, and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep.

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Trump’s budget proposal puts taxpayers first

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column says President Donald J. Trump’s proposed budget plan puts American taxpayers ahead of government bureaucrats who fund programs by signing away our children’s future. The Washington Times has the commentary: Under the current system – as practiced by both parties over the last several decades – the federal government sees citizens not as taxpayers, but as members of groups, groups that can be bought off with government benefits. Democrats prefer spending programs, Republicans prefer targeted tax incentives. Under this system, the government doesn’t think of the national ...

President Trump’s Budget Puts American Taxpayers First

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, reacting to the White House releasing the President’s 2018 budget. “Tea Party activists and grassroots conservatives appreciate that President Donald Trump and his administration are taking to heart their promise to ‘Drain the Swamp’ by constructing a budget based on the needs and expectations of the American taxpayer and not the impulses of bureaucrats and special interests in Washington, DC. It is not a perfect budget – if passed, it would balance in 10 years rather than five years, as advocated by Tea Party Patriots – ...

Aetna to get out of Obamacare

One of the nation’s largest health insurers this week announced it is soon withdrawing itself entirely from Obamacare – a move Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price says is more proof former President Barack Obama’s signature health-insurance law is a disaster. Fox Business has the details: “Aetna’s decision to completely withdraw from the ObamaCare exchanges adds to the mountain of evidence that ObamaCare has failed the American people. Repealing and replacing it with patient-centered solutions that stabilize the marketplace to bring down costs and increase choices is the only solution,” Price said late Wednesday. The ...

Rep. Lamar Smith demanding DOJ prosecute Hillary Clinton’s private server team over stonewalling

Lawmakers are crying "Foul!" — and rightfully so — over the internet company Hillary Clinton hired to run her private, off-the-books email server, as the company has been giving congressional investigators the runaround for more than a year — something prompting leading lawmakers to take the case to President Trump's Justice Department for prosecution. The Washington Free Beacon has the details: Rep. Lamar Smith (R., Texas), chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee, has asked the DOJ to prosecute Platte River Networks CEO Treve Suazo for obstructing a congressional investigation into his company’s role in provid...

Jenny Beth Martin: Trump administration takes ‘its boldest step yet’ with tax-cut plan

Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin in her latest column says President Donald J. Trump's recently released tax-cut plan is his administration's 'boldest step yet' as it will grease the wheels on what has for years been an otherwise sluggish economy. The Hill has the commentary: Wednesday, the Trump administration delivered a two-fer: On the one hand, it took its boldest step yet in its quest to drain the swamp that is Washington, D.C., while on the other hand it played its strongest card in its effort to jump-start the kind of economic boom that would extend the benefits of the anemic Obama “recovery” beyond the bicoastal elites ...

HHS Secretary Tom Price: ‘We need our physicians to be patient-facing, not computer-facing’

Raise your hand if you've been to see a medical provider in recent years and been disappointed he or she spent more time behind a computer than interacting with you? Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Tom Price this week on behalf of the Trump administration says he hopes to change that by lifting the regulatory burdens that too often come between patients and their medical professionals, specifically regulations that pertain to information technology. The Washington Examiner has the details: "We simply have to do a better job of reducing the burden of health IT on physicians and other providers," said Price, speaking at the Health ...
