Trump-onomics 101

The forgotten working folks who voted for Donald Trump are seeing the benefit of his economic policies in more hours at the factories and other businesses that employ them, higher wages and more job security in the outlook for new orders.

Trump Voters Winners In First 24 Hours Of Tax Reform

The Fake News media can kvetch about “trickle down” economics all they want, but $1,000 bonuses to Trump voters – frontline workers and managers – and companies announcing $15 an hour minimum wage is a huge political win for President Trump, and a big quality of life win for America’s hard-pressed working families.

The GOP Establishment Is About To Blow-Up The Pro-Growth Tax Plan

We urge CHQ readers to call their Representative and Senators through the Toll-Free Capitol Switchboard at 1-866-220-0044. Tell them to lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent, keep the special rate for repatriation at 12 percent and to keep the focus of the tax reform bill on job creation and economic growth, not class warfare.

The Jonestown GOP

In its blind failure to recognize its dire peril if it fails to pass tax reform, Capitol Hill’s Republican establishment is beginning to look a lot like the unfortunate souls at Jonestown who “drank the Kool-Aid” and committed mass suicide.

Ron Johnson urges end of 'failed' Obamacare program

Robert King, Washington Examiner

The Affordable Care Act created the Multi-State Plan Program to drive competition on the law’s exchanges, but only one state — Arkansas — is participating in the program next year. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said he is concerned about wasting the manpower of 42 federal employees on the program, which gets $10 million a year.

Congress Suffers From Senility Of Purpose And Principles

The 115th Congress is among the oldest in history; 18 of the 33 Senators running for reelection in 2018 will be 65 or older, but we think Congress is failing not because it suffers ill effects from aging, but because it suffers from senility of purpose and principles.

McConnell Refuses To Work With Conservatives On Obamacare Replacement

We urge CHQ readers to call Senator McConnell’s office (the Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell him you want a vote on the Consumer Freedom Option. Tell him it’s time for Senate Republicans to let the American people know whether they stand with consumers who want choice and freedom or with the Democrats and their abusive and intrusive Obamcare healthcare mandates.

Time for Conservatives to Call Talk Radio

It’s time to call talk radio and your Senators.  Tell your Senators and your favorite talk radio show host that they need to get behind the Cruz amendment to the Senate health care bill.

Conservatives Oppose McConnell’s Obamacare Bill

Mitch McConnell’s Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017 is a Band-Aid when an amputation is needed. This is not what Congress has promised the American people and will only pave the way for a government-run, single payer system that Republicans will own. The Senate should, simply put, start over.

Forgotten Americans Find Their Champion

Far from being dark or dystopian, we found in Donald Trump’s acceptance speech the first glimmer of hope for the restoration of our country and the real change for which Mr. Viguerie has long campaigned: My message is that things have to change and they have to change right now. Every day I wake up determined to deliver a better life for the people all across this nation that had been ignored, neglected and abandoned.

The Most Important Speech At The GOP Convention Last Night Was Not Delivered By Chris Christie

In a campaign that is all about communicating brand before policies and ideas Tiffany Trump’s remarks stood out as what may very well be the first speech about love delivered to a national political convention and for that distinction we deem it the most import speech of the evening.

In Wisconsin Trump Hits the Limit of His Stream of Consciousness Campaign

The arrest of Donald Trump’s campaign manager for grabbing a female reporter, and Trump’s ridiculous attempts to lie and tweet him out of the rap in the face of clear video evidence drove Trump’s numbers with women even lower. But Trump hit the limit of his stream of consciousness campaign with the truly bizarre statement that women who have an abortion should somehow be punished if abortion is illegal.
