Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) has introduced a bill that would make the individual tax cuts included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act permanent.

Before the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law, there were seven tax brackets: 10, 15, 25, 28, 33, 35, and 39.6 percent rates. The tax reform legislation cut those rates to 10, 12, 22, 24, 32, 35, and 37 percent.

Chris Enloe WEEKEND EDITOR/the Blaze To ring in the new year, Seattle implemented a new tax on its residents: the dreaded sugary drink tax. Now, we know just how much the tax will hurt consumers. How bad is it?

Pricing labels at a Seattle Costco have garnered much attention because they show just how much soda and other sugary drinks now cost Seattle residents. A CBS News manager tweeted pictures showing the price increase of two drinks.

In the first case, the price of a case of Dr. Pepper (36 cans) nearly doubled.

Giving amnesty to “Dreamers”—young adults brought to the U.S. illegally as children—would create a deficit of about $26 billion over 10 years, according to a report last month from the Congressional Budget Office.

“If we want to save taxpayers’ money, probably the best strategy is to enforce the law and encourage those here illegally to return to their home countries.”—@wwwCISorg’s Steven Camarota

In a video released Monday, the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies details costs presented in the government report.

There’s a belief that people really vote according to their wallets, and that’s why one of Hillary Clinton’s former advisers, in particular, is scared that a wave of millennials will leave the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

Trump’s Wall to Cost Less than the Amount US Spends on Taking Care of Illegals

Trump’s Wall Makes More Sense Than Dems Want to Believe

Since the day that he first announced his candidacy, Donald Trump has repeatedly insisted that his presidency would oversee the construction of a wall along the country’s southern border to secure the nation from illegal immigration and other criminal activity, like the trafficking of drugs.

Now, after Trump has been in office for nearly a full year, The Wall Street Journal reported that it had received a document from the Department of Homeland Security that outlined how the administration sought roughly $18 billion over 10 years to construct approximately 700 miles of new border barriers, which would more than double the

Just In: The Difference In Regulation Spending of Obama’s Last 16 Days And Trump’s First 11 Months Is Staggering

Share

According to a newly released study, the Obama administration pushed through $24.8 billion in new regulations during its final 16 days in office, or $1.55 billion per day.

By way of contrast, the Trump team passed $5.8 billion for the entire year, or $16.8 million per day.

“The trend of regulatory activity shifted dramatically in 2017 once President Trump assumed the presidency,” said Dan Bosch, American Action Forum director of regulatory policy, and research analyst Dan Goldbeck, the authors of the study.

They added, “In fact, 81 percent of all regulatory costs finalized in 2017 came during former President Barack Obama’s final weeks in office.”

The GOP-led tax overhaul signed into law by President Donald Trump has forced high-tax blue states to consider lawsuits and even calling for tax cuts of their own.

Democrats in New Jersey and California are considering allowing people to make charitable donations instead of paying certain taxes, according to the Associated Press. Democrats in Connecticut and New York are considering switching from income taxes to new taxes on payroll.

Some, believe it or not, are even calling for tax cuts.
