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.

The budget deal ...
