How President Donald Trump is helping lift 1 million Americans out of poverty

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – One million Americans will be lifted from poverty because of President Donald Trump’s historic Opportunity Zones tax cuts program, the White House Council of Economic Advisers estimates in a new report.
 
For over 50 years, the “War on Poverty” has left too many American communities behind. Many of its programs have “relied on inefficient top-down federal grants and subsidies that empower Washington bureaucrats and special interests with lobbyists at the expense of communities in need,” HUD Secretary Ben Carson and White House Domestic Policy Council Director Brooke Rollins wrote.

Small Businesses to Face Biggest Tax Increase in Years Under Former Vice President Joe Biden’s Tax Proposals

 

Bambridge Accountants New YorkNew YorkFormer Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, plans to issue the biggest tax increase in years for small businesses report Bambridge Accountants New York.

The effect would be to hinder entrepreneurship and reduce the funds available for business growth.

Alistair Bambridge, partner at Bambridge Accountants New York, asks: “Is this really what is needed as the economy tries to recover? When we should be encouraging corporations to add to the workforce and drive the economy, these tax plans reduce the ability and incentives for businesses to invest and expand.”

Monday Starts an Excellent Week for President Donald Trump

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Tomorrow night, February 4th, 2020,  President Donald Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address.
 
“He’ll quite rightly be able to declare the nation is strong — with solid economic growth and jobs for all who want them and a Dow more than 50 percent higher than when he won the White House. Not to mention a new North American trade agreement just as candidate Trump promised, China desperate to end the trade war and America’s NATO allies paying much more of their fair share for collective defense.”

Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – January 5th, 2020

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – We accomplished a lot in Washington in 2019, but you probably didn’t hear about it from the mainstream media; they were (and still are!) hyperfocused on impeachment. From giving our military the largest pay raise in a decade, to protecting the sanctity of life, I spent my first year in the Senate fighting for Tennessee values

In 2020, I will continue to advocate for what Tennesseans consistently tell me is most important to them: protecting family values, fighting to expand rural health care and broadband access, helping workers succeed, and securing the nation.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.

Tennessee Attorney General Asks the Affordable Care Act Be Held Unconstitutional

 

Tennessee State GovernmentNashville, TN – Tennessee Attorney General Herbert H. Slatery III has joined a coalition of 20 States asking a federal district court in Texas to hold the Affordable Care (ACA) unconstitutional and to enjoin the entire law.

“The lawsuit filed today explains that in 2012 in NFIB v. Sebelius the U.S. Supreme Court narrowly upheld the core provision of the ACA—the individual mandate—because the Court viewed ACA’s penalty for not complying with the individual mandate as a ‘tax’”,  said Attorney General Slatery.
