Meaningful tax reform is about putting small businesses at a competitive advantage, the leader of a nonpartisan organization committed to limited government and economic freedom said Friday.

“Our cause is simple,” Alfredo Ortiz, the president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, said at the rally near IRS headquarters in Washington. “Put small businesses back at the heart of America’s economy. It is the right thing to do.”

The first priority should be tax cuts, he said.

“It starts with tax cuts, and

Where is the Money Going?

Share

By Adam Brandon at FreedomWorks 1 day ago

The fix is in. Did you know, Americans spent more on taxes (on average) than food and clothing combined in 2016? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average U.S. tax bill has increased by 41.13 percent in just three years.

No wonder half of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck. Meanwhile, the federal debt stands at $19.976 trillion, which is bigger than U.S. gross domestic product (GDP).

You can’t help but wonder, where is the money going?

Will the GOP tax cut be the ‘one of largest tax cuts in history’ as President Trump is proposing?

Share

By Robert Romano at NetRight Daily and Americans for Limited Government

“We’re proposing one of the largest tax cuts in history, even larger than that of President Ronald Reagan. Our tax cut is bigger.”

That was President Donald Trump speaking on May 1 in a speech made to the Independent Community Bankers Association at the White House, promising huge, record-setting tax cuts for the American people this year.

Since 1968, the largest tax cut in American history was the 1981 package delivered by President Ronald Reagan, a Republican Senate and a Democrat House. At its height, 4 years after enactment in 1985, it rose to 4.1 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), averaging 2.89 percent of GDP over the four

Share

The cost of a legislation to legalize childhood arrivals is likely to be far higher than earlier attempts because of Obamacare’s health insurance subsidies. The Affordable Care Act subsidizes the costs of health insurance for millions of Americans and would likely foot the bill for many of those whose residency in the U.S. would be legalized by the DREAM Act.

Sen. Ted Cruz thinks tax reform can help the average American.

Tax reform is all about “the promise to remodel our antiquated, bureaucratic, ineffective tax system with the objective of creating more jobs, higher wages, more opportunity, with the objective of making it easier for a factory worker to pay for his son’s education,” Cruz said at a Capitol Hill event on tax reform Wednesday, adding:

Making it easier for a single mom to pay her monthly mortgage bill. Making it easier for a family who is

COMMENTARY BY

Scott Asbjornson is an executive of AAON, Inc., an HVAC company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The U.S. tax code is 4 million words long, so it’s no surprise that millions of Americans look for help every year just to keep appraised of the ever-changing, complex maze of laws and regulations—and yet few actually get the help they need.

Last year, only a quarter of the more than 100 million taxpayer phone calls to the IRS were actually answered by someone.

That’s a

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) plans to unveil his “Medicare for All” plan today, which is drawing criticism from those who say a single-payer system would eliminate choice and put more burdens on hardworking taxpayers.

“Instead of wasting hundreds of billions of dollars trying to administer an enormously complicated system of hundreds of separate insurance plans, there would be one insurance plan for the American people with one single payer,” a summary of the bill explains.

David Merritt, executive vice president at
