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.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
