Why Supreme Court's ruling in Fulton case is critical win for religious minorities

#SCOTUS’s decision in the Fulton case vindicates the religious liberty rights of faith-based foster care & adoption providers.

Because of this ruling, more children will be placed into loving homes.

Pat McDowell is a 5th generation Texas rancher. He & his brothers want to leave their ranch to a niece so she can keep traditions alive for the next generation.

Under Democrats' plan this won't be possible. They’d have to break up the business to pay a huge tax bill.

It's crucial for American businesses to be able to sell and compete, not just here at home, but around the world too.

The House needs to pass bipartisan renewals of the GSP and MTB.

House Democrats’ inaction on job-creating trade programs is only adding to the grief of Main Street businesses who are already struggling under a severe worker shortage, higher production costs, & the prospect of crippling tax hikes.

We've got a better way.

It's time for a bipartisan approach to renewing the job-creating Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) and the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (MTB).

Today we will be introducing legislation to do just that.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Liberals are now questioning President Biden’s pledge that “Nobody making under $400,000 bucks would have their taxes raised, period,” with a new analysis from the left-leaning Tax Policy Center.   The analysis finds that President Biden’s overall tax plan will raise ta...

There’s fantasy and then there’s reality.

It’s time for the left to stop trying to raise taxes on the middle class with their disingenuous attacks on the 2017 tax cuts.

Lifting the SALT cap as part of an infrastructure deal creates a tax shelter for the wealthy and would guarantee that tax hikes land on the backs of working families.

It’s alarming Secretary Yellen couldn’t provide us with assurances that the President will not take this approach.

The Biden Administration’s tax hike raises taxes on more than a million small businesses.

In order to incur the cost of the Biden Plan, these employers will have to layoff employees, raise prices on consumers, or scale back plans to grow.

06/16/2021

Democrats prioritize wasteful government spending over hardworking Americans’ paychecks.

Most of the pain from Biden’s proposed tax hikes will be shouldered by ordinary families, with lost jobs, lower wages, fewer benefits, and higher consumer costs.

06/15/2021

Biden’s tax plan takes money and power away from local communities and gives it to Washington.

Democrats’ tax-and-spend policies seize control from America’s small town and turn it over to Nancy Pelosi to reward her hand-picked industries and pet projects.

06/15/2021

Raising taxes on entrepreneurship drives away incentive to invest in local business and a local community.

The only promises that can be made by the Biden tax hike are fewer jobs and lower wages.

06/15/2021

Following the 2017 tax cuts, unemployment reached all-time lows for African American workers, Hispanic workers, and workers without a high school degree.

President Biden’s $3.4 trillion tax hike directly targets the heart of American entrepreneurship: small businesses and family farms.

Democrats’ socialist agenda pushes companies to countries with lower tax rates – including Communist China.

If we follow the Biden Plan, America will have the highest business tax rates in the developed world.

06/15/2021

In 2017, America started on a track to greater economic security when Congress passed historic tax cuts.

Now, Democrats in Washington want to return America to the bad old days of jobs and investment fleeing overseas.

Half of the pandemic's unemployment money may have been stolen

The greatest theft of American tax dollars in history—up to $400b—demands congressional oversight.

For context, $400b is more than:

-The entire 2021 budgets of the Army and Navy combined
-The entire economy of Colorado
-The combined economies of 8 American states

Much of the money has probably left the country.
