The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

Japan’s ‘Lost Generation’ of Economic Growth: Blame High Taxes

John Fund, National Review

The key to revitalizing the American economy and creating good jobs is to pass tax reform this year. It will be no panacea, but the absence of real structural changes in our tax code for the past 30 years has clearly set us back. Now is the time to seize the opportunity for change. If we flub it, we could face a Japanese-style sluggish economy that could sap our innovative spirit and also create social tensions.

Job Creation First, Tax Reform Second In House Tax Bill

There is still a lot of work to be done to get a tax reform bill through the Senate, but the House bill is a start, and, with its extensive economic growth and job creation features, it is a better start than we initially thought it would be.

Voters Sent The Republicans A Wake-Up Message

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Maybe the most powerful line in American politics is “send them a message” and on Tuesday the voters sent Republicans a series of unmistakable messages.

Why the Left Has Been So Wrong About the Trump Boom

Stephen Moore, Investor's Business Daily

Maybe the liberal economists and their shills in the media should show some humility. They should acknowledge they were dead wrong about how much Obamanomics was going to grow the economy and about how Trumponomics would crash the economy and the stock market. Or better yet, maybe the rest of us should all just stop listening to them.

First Impression: House GOP Tax Plan

The cost of government is not what it taxes, it is what it spends. The GOP tax plan is a start, but not a particularly bold or ambitious start, and it is only one part of a pro-growth economic formula. Spending has yet to be dealt with.

Despicable Anti-Gillespie Ad Backfires After NYC Truck Attack

After an Uzbek Muslim, who apparently entered the United States on a so-called “diversity visa,” ran over and killed at least eight innocent New Yorkers the Latino Victory Fund pulled their sickening ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children with a pick-up truck.

Economic growth is halfway there, livin' on a prayer

Editors, Washington Examiner

If tax reform efforts fail, the economic growth caused by its anticipation won’t just be nullified, it’ll be reversed. The Trump administration’s deregulations should be applauded, but in terms of finalizing economic growth, we’re only halfway there. The economy is livin’ on a prayer, a prayer that Congress needs to answer with tax reform, and soon.

Gillespie Gets Pence and CHQ Nod in VA Governor Race

The MAGA agenda is on the line in the Virginia Governor's race, and it is time for conservatives to own the vote. We urge you to talk to your friends, neighbors, family, church members and others in your social circle and ask them to vote for Ed Gillespie for Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Conservative Leaders To Ryan: Pass Budget Resolution Now!

Conservative leaders, including CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie have written to Speaker Ryan telling him to stop stalling around on passing a budget because the quickest path to passing a tax reform bill is to move directly to a House vote on the Senate-passed budget resolution.

Trump’s tax cut: ‘Show me the money’

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Mr. Trump and the Republicans won the election by promising jobs and prosperity. A new Terrence poll finds that by a two to one margin voters agree with Mr. Trump that a tax cut would be “good for the economy.” Failure to pass a pro-growth tax cut puts nearly every Republican seat in peril. To keep the Republican majorities and grow the economy Mr. Trump has to do one thing for voters: Show me the money.

GOP tax plan can raise the economic tide and lift all boats

Editors, Washington Examiner

The long-awaited Republican tax reform framework was released Wednesday, endorsed by President Trump and congressional GOP leaders. Much commentary focused on "winners and losers," but the truth is that effective tax reform creates economic growth that benefits everyone. It shouldn't have come in late September, but here's hoping it quickly becomes legislation then law, and thus quickly fosters economic growth and new well-paid jobs.

Trump Tax Plan: Will Ryan And McConnell Pass It?

The President's tax plan shouldn't be controversial with Capitol Hill's Republican majority, however, that's what we thought about the Obamacare repeal and McConnell and Ryan couldn't get that passed.

The Trump boom arrives

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

In the aftermath of the Obamacare repeal whiff, enacting the Trump tax cut this year is critical to the expansion. Some of the elation we are seeing in the stock market and business spending is due to the anticipation effect of tax rate cuts before year’s end. If Republicans — and hopefully pro-business Democrats — can pass a meaningful tax cut this fall — the Trump boom may just be getting started.

The Only Problem Facing President Trump’s Tax Reform Ideas

We are all for the President’s tax reform principles, but we hope he understands that, like Obamacare repeal, the problem getting it passed isn’t the Democrats, it’s the establishment Republicans like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

Some Cutting Remarks on Taxes

Ed Fuelner, CNS News

True tax reform must combine the right cuts in tax rates with the right cuts in spending. Indeed, it’s the only way to put the federal budget on a sustainable path. Focusing only on one side of the budget ledger would be a major mistake.

The Trump Economy

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

Put simply, if the GOP whiffs on the tax cut, it will harm the economy and the stock market. It will put in dire jeopardy the Republican majorities in the midterm elections in 2018. So losing is not an option here. That is why Republican leaders would be wise to downsize their grand ambitions of a total rewrite of the tax code and simply sell the American people on a job creation tax cut that will benefit all American companies.

Introducing MAGAnomics

Mick Mulvaney, Wall Street Journal

If we enact the president’s broad agenda—if MAGAnomics is allowed to work—we will have set the stage for the greatest revival of the American economy since the early 1980s. It will remind people—including those who have forgotten, or those who don’t want you to remember—what a great America means. That is driving everything we do.

Are Illinois and Puerto Rico Our Future?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Deficits and national debts as a share of GDP are rising. Almost nowhere does one see the old robust growth rates returning. And the infrastructure of the West — roads, bridges, tunnels, ports, airports, subways, train tracks — continues to crumble for lack of investment. The days of interstate highway systems and moon shots seem to be behind us.

House Freedom Caucus To Ryan: Cancel August Recess

We agree with our friends in the Freedom Caucus; it’s time to go big on tax reform, and to do that Congress must work through the August recess to get a bill on the President’s desk.
