    Tags: Economic Recovery, Your Taxes

    Joe Biden received a whopping four Pinocchio’s from The Washington Post for claiming that Republican tax cuts only went to corporations and the richest Americans. It’s more of the same Democratic narrative, peddling falsehoods about America’s booming economy. Released last week, the April jobs report crushed all expectations - 263,000 new jobs, the seventh straight month of wage growth, and the lowest unemployment level since 1969. How can Joe Biden and his party of economic deniers continue to ... Read more

After two years, 2,800 subpoenas, 1,000 search warrants and interviews, tens of millions of dollars, and unfettered freedom to follow every path, Special Counsel Robert Mueller reported there was no collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign. None. Zero. Nada. In fact, he concluded not a single American conspired or coordinated with Russia despite “multiple offers.” Turns out the entire accusation Democrats and the liberal media tried to desperately sell ...

    “Doesn’t she know how tax refunds work?”. That’s what I heard repeatedly from folks I visited this past week while traveling my nine-county congressional district. They were referencing a Democratic presidential candidate from California who – like others in her party and many media “experts” – shamelessly peddled the claim that smaller tax refunds means higher taxes. It was quickly debunked. The Washington Post called the claim “misleading and nonsensical.” My constituents here in Texas know: Y... Read more
