The Brady Briefing: Trump Economy’s Job Creation Continues to Defy Expectations

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 argue with the facts?

Families have been asking lawmakers to simplify the way their children are taxed on unearned income. While we worked to do so in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we recognize that military survivors’ benefits are different than gifting stocks and bonds.

Last week, bipartisan legislation was introduced to provide tax relief to children who have lost a parent serving in the military. Our Gold Star Families should keep every dollar that they deserve, and I’m confident that members on both sides of the aisle will support the family members of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

At a $32 trillion price tag, Medicare For All is a frightening government takeover of health care that would kick 158 million Americans off their current health plans and severely limit access to local doctors and hospitals – life-threatening news for anyone who lives in rural America.

I sent a letter last week to Chairman Neal requesting that the Ways and Means Committee hold a hearing on the proposed legislation. With so much at stake – more government control, seniors losing Medicare advantage, taxes doubling – the American people have a right to see exactly how this radical proposal would impact them.
