    The Brady Briefing is a regular feature of USA Daily Times. By U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) Last week the President announced his pick to replace Justice Kennedy for the United States Supreme Court. Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a very strong choice, just as Neil Gorsuch was. He is a highly qualified originalist with an exemplary record. I have no doubt he’ll strictly adhere to the Constitution and uphold the rule of law, rather than try to make law from the bench. It’s exciting to watch Pres... Read more

    By: Rep. Kevin Brady Last week, when President Trump asked House Republicans to pass a bill that would turn the four pillars of his conservative immigration plan into law, I said yes.

    By: Editorial Board Democratic governors have lambasted the GOP tax reform as “evil in the extreme,” to quote the moral stylings of California Governor Jerry Brown. But that isn’t stopping them from cashing in on the tax law. Many liberal states have reported unexpected revenue surges. Tax revenues in California this year are $3.8 billion higher than the governor’s forecasts. New York’s Comptroller reported last month that tax collections have surpassed the state’s February forecast by $315 mill... Read more

    By: Tony Mecia May 16, 2018 As new economic indicators attest to the economy’s strength, Democrats continue to insist that last year’s tax law is a big failure. In a hearing Wednesday before the House Ways and Means Committee on the effect of the law, Democrats stuck to the talking points they used in failing to block the bill: that it is a raw deal for American families and mortgages the future for the sake of the wealthy few. Republicans say the law is succeeding in unshackling the U.S. econom... Read more

President Donald Trump is right to take a hard line against China’s predatory policies and significant trade violations. The challenge for every president, however, is how to change China’s behavi...
