Republicans say the law is succeeding in unshackling the U.S. econom... Read more

    By: Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) China’s dishonest and unfair trade practices are hurting the American economy and costing us thousands of jobs.

    By: Kevin Brady On Tuesday, April 17, we Americans file our taxes — for the last time — under the old, broken tax code. Yes, for the last time.
