Before 1985, inflation in the United States put people in higher tax brackets even if their real income – discounting inflation, that is – hadn’t budged. The term we used at the time was “bracket creep.” Fortunately, in 1981, Congress passed – and President Reagan signed – a bill that cut tax rates for the next three years. And most of the years between 1979 and 1999 had inflation rates of 3% or less.
Democrats are terrified. The lengths to which they'll go to silence their political opponents – as opposed to defeating them at the polls – tells you everything you need to know about today's Democrats. The reason "The Left" wants to silence regular old Americans and "Conservatives" is because they’re afraid more want to join our ranks. If nothing else, this move by Elon Musk to buy Twitter makes that crystal clear.
As president, Joe Biden's left our country in a dire situation. With the ending of Title 42 coming next month, an estimated 18,000 illegal immigrants per day may flood into our communities that are already overburdened with migrants. And don’t think that these are only innocent migrants running from failed governments in South and Central America.
While Att. Gen. Ken Paxton stated that Houston ISD’s Covid-19 Paid-Leave Policy does not, on its face, violate an employee’s medical privacy rights, he did clarify that “HISD is a covered entity under the Texas Medical Records & Privacy Act, and must comply with its provisions. Any standard documentation that certifies an individual’s COVID-19 vaccination status constitutes a 'vaccine passport'.”
“By rescinding our Medicaid waiver, the Biden Administration needlessly threatened the healthcare of many vulnerable Texans. Texas knows its own healthcare needs better than the federal government, and this puts those needs first,” said Cruz after Biden restored the state's 10-year waiver that - if not allowed - could have jeopardized the coverage of 2-out-of-5 Texas children who rely on Medicaid.
“I was horrified by the crimes against fellow Texan and service member SPC Vanessa Guillén, and hope this legislation honors her memory and legacy as a monumental step toward ending sexual assault and harassment in our nation’s military. The SHIIP Act creates commonsense protections and processes to ensure that instances of sexual assault are removed from the military’s chain of command,” said South Texas Rep. Tony Gonzales.
The Texas Workforce Commission's Jobs & Education for Texans (JET) Program supports Texas' employers by preparing students for careers in occupations identified as being in high demand. And now approximately $50 million has been allocated to help eligible institutions that apply for grant funding to defray the start-up costs of developing Career & Technical Education Programs.
It’s always fun when progressive jerks try to use their bizarre phrase of "that's not who our nation is" to get us to do what they want. From running down the bedrock idea of "free speech," to "reimagining democracy” into meaning that they have total control over cultural and political power, turning our kids into gender-baffled sex objects for some miniscule slice of Democrat perverts is unacceptable.
After unwanted media exposure caused a lull late last year, “the charters (flights) are back with a fury,” says a whistleblower from Avelo Airlines – one of three Charter Companies whisking illegal immigrants into U.S. cities around the country in the dead of night for the Biden White House. An Immigration & Customs Enforcement source said, “Flights never stop. It’s like the Energizer Bunny – they just kept going & going.”
While Americans are rightfully and understandably stressed about the rapidly increasing price of gasoline at the pump, those escalating prices are not due the reasons Joe Biden is telling us. The most significant cause is his policies related to the Oil & Gas Industry. These began on his first day in office, when he unilaterally canceled the permits for the partially constructed Keystone XL Pipeline.
Even Democrats from all across the nation are now complaining about Joe Biden's failure to control our border – with some 2 million poor, unvaccinated & untested illegal immigrants crossing the Southern Border last year. The bigger problem is that some experts estimate the numbers in this 2022 Election Year could climb to 6 million! So, what is a nation if it doesn’t control its own borders?
Since President Joe Biden took office on January 20th, 2021, newly released U.S. Customs & Border Patrol data now shows that Border Patrol Agents arrested a bone-chilling 42 individuals on our own nation's Terrorist Watchlist as they tried to enter the country illegally via a porous Southern Border in 2021.
Its what quiet panic looks like. Among a crucial group that Joe Biden won by 13% in 2020 – the Independent Voter – his "disapproval rating" is now 30% or more higher than his "approval" rating. And despite such mounting evidence, there's still internal debate within Democrat Party ranks as to whether its the party’s messaging, or its policies, that are pushing voters of all stripes away.
There's an interesting list of things that Democrats believe in these days – and if you’re a Democrat, believing in something means its like a religious cult. Its all that matters. What do you have to believe in to be a Modern Democrat, and is there a place hidden far from view where some anointed one makes up all the nonsense and sends it down from high upon the mountaintop?
“We’re here, we learned a lot, we’re angry. We came here upset with this administration, and we’re leaving even more upset,” said Cong. James Comer, who along with Texas Cong. Pete Sessions and over a half-dozen other members visited the U.S. Customs & Border Patrol's Yuma Sector, where immigrants stream across the U.S Border through a little-known pathway where Arizona, Mexico & California meet.
"To be a Law Enforcement Officer is to answer a higher calling, which is why I'm proud to recognize the dedication & bravery of our DPS troopers across the state and throughout history," said Gov. Abbott, dedicating the memorial to honor DPS Officers & Texas Rangers who have given their lives protecting their fellow Texans. The monument includes a 77-foot circle of granite and an 11-foot-tall bronze DPS Trooper.
“Crime is going up in far-left cities because of soft-on-crime policies. Biden’s response is to clamp down on guns put together in a kit. Federal law already prohibits felons from owning or possessing any gun, including so called ‘ghost guns,’” said Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma prior to introducing a Congressional Review Act Joint Resolution of Disapproval to stop Mr. Biden’s proposed new rule.
Attorney General Ken Paxton joined a multi-state effort in an emergency application to the U.S. Supreme Court in a racial discrimination case against Fairfax County Virginia's School Board – the state’s largest school district – after the board issued new admissions criteria that was intended to reduce the number of Asian-American students while moving toward a progressive vision of racial balance.
