Rep. Paul Ryan has been elected Speaker of the House and the next battle for conservatives centers on who will take his place as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.  The Ways and Means Committee is the central battleground for the future of tax reform.  If we are ever to limit the power of the federal Leviathan, we will need a chairman willing to fight on principle for key conservative reforms.  That person is Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH).

Tiberi is one of two members who have declared their candidacy for the vacant chairmanship.  If you can tell a man by his friends, Tiberi is the right person to take the gavel.  Tiberi has a perfect pro-life position throughout his career in Congress.  Likewise he is pro-gun and has been endorsed repeatedly by the National Rifle Association with an "A" rating.  He has also scored 90% by Gun Owners of America and has an outstanding record on tax issues, including support for the Americans for Tax Reform "No New Tax" Pledge.

On tax issues, which are the most pertinent for the Ways and Means Committee, Tiberi has supported reducing the capital gains tax, he supported effort to make the Bush tax cuts permanent, and wanted to eliminate the death tax.  Most critically, Tiberi has pledged to push for a Reagan-type tax reform that will limit the power of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and reduce the tax burden on all Americans.

America sits at the tipping point.  If we are ever going to stop the growth of federal power, we must limit the ability of the government to grab money from our wallets and pocketbooks.  It is critical at the next chairman of the tax-writing committee share those beliefs.  With a long history of support on reducing taxes, there is little doubt Tiberi would be a leader in the fight to reduce the power of Washington.

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
