‘Tax reform 2.0’ could help middle-class workers save for retirement

According to Northwestern Mutual, 21% of Americans don’t have retirement savings. Lawmakers are in the process of changing that by creating a bipartisan bill that would help middle-class workers save for retirement and assist small employers with cheaper retirement options.

Trump’s justice likely to be trouble for rogue agencies

Washington is bracing for President Trump’s decision of who will replace Justice Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court – including agencies that reigned under the Obama administration. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), created by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was designed with the intent to protect American consumers from abusive financial practices; however, it has become nothing more than a political slush fund. D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh even ruled that the agency is unconstitutional. Whoever President Trump picks for the Court will likely take a conservative view to the CFPB’s abuse of power. The Washington Examiner ...

Canceling Part of the August Recess a Good Step in the Right Direction, More Needed

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a step towards making Congress work by cancelling part of the August recess this week. This is an effort to keep Congress working until appropriations bills pass before the end of the fiscal year and to confirm President Trump’s long list of nominees. But Senators must stay in Washington more than 2 or 3 days each week in order to fight and overcome historic Democrat obstruction. “We cannot continue to allow Congress to wait until our government is nearing another shutdown to present a 2,000 page bill and then give lawmakers a ‘choice’ of shutting down the government or passing a bill no one has ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: Trump will make the deal with North Korea

In a few weeks – for the first time ever – a U.S. president is scheduled to sit down with the leader of North Korea to negotiate the possibility of denuclearization and peace. If President Trump plays his cards right and talks continue to go in an “America first” direction, the summit will happen on June 12 in Singapore.
