Feel the Bern on Taxes

I had a lot going on today and this evening so missed the debate with Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz.

Bottom line for me: Full Repeal of Obamacare Tax is REAL tax reform.

Senator Mike Lee’s take on the Child Tax Credit as neccesary for tax reform makes total sense to me and I do not have children. Read FOR THE NON-RICH, THE CHILD TAX CREDIT IS THE KEY TO TAX REFORM by Ernie Tedeschi.

Mike Lee posted, quote:  must benefit our ultimate entrepreneurial and investor class: America’s moms and dads. 

And there there are issues with tax reform and the budget process playing into it. What difference does tax reform make if there is no cutting, or capping or balancing happening the budget?… while spending keeps going on and on and on and …. well, you get the picture.

Please, watch Mike Lee tell it like it needs to be told: 

(Wish there was a rap for things Mike Lee talks about! >subliminal to Nate Smoove and Diamond & Silk<.)

Is Paul Ryan trying to look Presidential?

It seems like Paul Ryan is working very hard at running for a future presidential campaign.  Everything is so well staged. Everything appears to be dignified. Most notably things seem to make him appear like a young Jack Kennedy. It seems like Ryan’s handlers are preparing him to look like a leader for a run for something bigger, in the near future.  

If that is indeed the case then Paul Ryan needs to be well vetted on his true leadership capabilities and where he specifically stands on smaller government because frankly, for all of his yammering and staged personality, I find him sorely lacking in his performance claims. 

  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to cut taxes and spending and rein in the debt?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to limit the size and scope of the federal government and return authority to states and to the American people?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to get rid of Obamacare and promote health care solutions based on free enterprise, not government controls?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to protect America from foreign threats, secure the border, and develop a robust, principled foreign policy that puts America first?
  • What exactly, as a LEADER, has Paul Ryan done to ensure that our judges and lawmakers uphold the Constitution of the United States, starting by halting executive overreach?

But first, let us flashback to November 17, 1998when Paul Ryan set foot on the political path to Speaker of the House…and beyond? Take your time and really listen to the whole question and answer segment, especially after the section on his family.

Note: And remember when Paul Ryan said“I want to say to the American people: We hear you. We will do right by you. And we will deliver.” (Begin at 4:19)  

In case you missed it, watch and listen to Thomas Massie: At least McConnell got health care bill to a vote.

And thanks to Thomas Massie, that is why I keep asking those original questions of Mr. Speaker and why you should ask him too, especially now it appears he is walking the walk on that path to a presidential run.

In fairness I must point out Jim Geraghty’s piece in National Review: A Busy House but specifically quote him in paragraph three : 

“In fact, the House keeps sending bills over to the Senate, month after month: 250 in all so far this year…. Quite of few of those bills are minor — …but a significant number would count as accomplishments worth boasting about on the campaign trail next year if they were signed into law.

Oh yeah, and #WeAreStillWaiting Mr. Speaker.

Revenue Neutral: A Liarspalooza

Revenue Neutral is not Congress cutting spending.

Revenue Neutral is not Congress capping spending..

Revenue Neutral will not Make Government Small Again.

Revenue Neutral is not about the Proper Role of Government

Revenue Neutral is not Tax Reform.

Revenue Neutral is about Control. It is about some in Congress wanting to maintain control of your hard earned money by redistributing it to their favorite projects and agendas and people. Instead of living on a budget or scrapping redundant or useless or wasteful or unconstitutional programs, ones that infringe upon unalienable rights, some in Congress want to keep spending your money without consequence, without conscience, and without just cause. 

Seriously Republicans, get a grip on it and stand for something.

You said. We believed you. We Won.

Now go and win some more. Take Back America! 

Full Repeal. No Bailouts. No Excuses. Cut, Cap, and Balance that stinkin’ budget already. Sheesh.
