Democrats’ fear-mongering tax reform tactics have backfired

After weeks of Democrats – like Nancy Pelosi – falsely claiming President Trump’s tax reforms are little more than “crumbs” and “scraps” for the American people, more recent polling in February show hard-working Americans are discovering they aren’t telling the truth. After millions of workers noticed a bump in their income, a majority of Americans now support President Trump’s tax reform plan. Townhall has the details: This is about as clean a political win as you're going to see these days, so Republicans are absolutely right to be pressing their advantage.  They've earned it.  They withstood weeks of withering and punishing ...

Daily Signal: Spending cuts are better for the economy than tax hikes

Thanks to President Trump, the recently passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a great first step to reviving business confidence in the U.S and boosting economic growth. However, if the Republican party doesn’t follow through on their campaign promise to minimize spending, America will take two giant leaps backward. The Daily Signal has the details: Some point to the deficit as a reason to raise taxes. But new research shows that spending cuts are superior to tax hikes when it comes to reducing the deficit. This should embolden lawmakers to pursue spending reductions in this year’s budget resolution, giving particular focus to reducing entitlem...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: “Why is the Senate putting the cart before the horse” on illegal immigration

The Senate has spent most of the week considering the “best” possible plan for the “Dreamers” and how to protect them from deportation. What our lawmakers should be focused on is policy that actually secures our borders and protects the American people. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: Consider that virtually every proposal under consideration begins with the premise that this particular group of illegal immigrants — the “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children — must be shielded from deportation. They did not come here illegally of their own free will. They were brought here as children. It ...

Rep. Mark Meadows: This spending proposal is disgusting and reckless

After eight years of reckless spending under the Obama administration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer managed to strike a so-called budget “deal” that fails to serve the American people and only prolongs their suffering. Breitbart has House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows’ take on the reckless deal: The budget deal between Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell will increase defense and domestic spending by roughly $400 billion over the next two years; the Defense Department’s budget will rise by $80 billion and domestic spending will increase by $63 billion in 2018 alone. The budget deal ...

Quin Hillyer: The Senate budget deal is overwhelmingly irresponsible

The Senate budget deal worked out on Wednesday should be vetoed by President Trump immediately – if it passes Congress, that is. The agreement would bust budget caps for military spending and it would create an explosion in domestic discretionary spending that is unaffordable to a nation already suffering from years of massive deficit spending. The Washington Examiner has conservative columnist Quin Hillyer's take on the so-called deal: A nation already reeling from years of massive deficit spending, including a demonic $666 billion deficit in the most recently completed fiscal year, cannot afford this new profligacy. The new spending will ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Blasts Reported Congressional Budget Deal

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today, responding to reports that Congress is close to a 2 year budget deal. “When will our so-called ‘Republican leaders’ ever learn to stick by their promises and previous statements? Republicans in Congress should step away from Chuck Schumer’s negotiating table and work to pass a budget that balances by making tough choices and eliminates our more than $20 trillion in debt. Anything less would be an abandonment of their promises to the American people. "It's really not that hard -- as the Penny Plan (endorsed by Senate Budget ...

The NFL has become a mouthpiece for leftist disrespect for our country

For nearly a year, the country has watched the NFL act as a megaphone for the left’s “take a knee” protests. Now they have taken their liberal advocacy a step further by refusing to run a veterans’ Super Bowl advertisement asking the country to stand for our national anthem. The hypocrisy of this is astounding and the NFL has made a big mistake for its teams and for the country. The Washington Examiner has the details: For nearly a year, the country has watched the NFL act as a megaphone for the left’s "Take a Knee" protests. They have given airtime and a massive public platform to their athletes who’ve chosen to kneel during the ...

Sen. Rand Paul: ‘We need to figure out a way the FBI doesn’t insert itself’ into politics

The House Intelligence Committee has voted to release a classified memo to members of Congress, reportedly containing allegations of the FBI abusing a surveillance program to target a Trump campaign official during the 2016 presidential election. Democrats and some officials are fighting the release of the memo, but the decision to release it is ultimately in the hands of President Trump, and Republicans are calling on him to make it available to the public. The Washington Times has the details: Sen. Rand Paul said Thursday the FBI needs more oversight, and there needs to be some way to keep the agency out of elections. “Maybe we need to be ...

Senator Ted Cruz: Congress, it’s time to keep your promise to repeal and replace ObamaCare

Republicans in Congress failed last year to repeal and replace ObamaCare and millions of Americans are suffering under skyrocketing premiums and health insurance costs. Senator Ted Cruz wants to kickstart a bill that starts small and builds up allowing the American people to break free from overbearing premiums. The Daily Signal has the details: Cruz is committed to the issue because he thinks the Republican Party needs to use the repeal-and-replace bill as a “last reconciliation” before the midterm elections in November. Cruz aims to get a bill passed with just 51 votes, getting around a Democratic filibuster. Getting rid of Obamacare’s ...
