Congress can pass bi-partisan legislation -- to effectively bar the IRS from offering a free online tax filing system that would compete with for-profit tax preparers. Those tax preparers put $600M in campaign coffers according to NBC News. Cause and effect??
Attorney General Barr told Congress today he will publish the redacted (color coded) #MuellerReport by next week. It would be wise, if not realistic, to wait for the report's publication before casting doubt on his motives.
Congress cannot allow the executive branch to "adopt regulations" intended to insulate itself from the forceful congressional oversight the Founding Fathers enumerated in Article One of the Constitution.
Subpoenas for unredacted Mueller Report should not be necessary between Congress and Department of Justice -- consistent with previous investigations. Redactions are appropriate before public release of the Report.
The Trump Budget calls for ending Department of Education financial assistance ($18M) to Special Olympics. Has deliberate cruelty replaced "compassionate conservatism" as governing philosophy? The decision defies logic and happily a bi-partisan Congress will not go along!
Congress should await results of Mueller, Southern District of NY, etc.law enforcement investigations of Trump/Trump Administration. Redundant Congressional investigations waste money -- make voters skeptical of Congressional motives.
Since January 20,2017, the pillars of our Representative Democracy have been shaken. Congress must not allow present to become precedent either by ignoring or overreacting to Donald Trump!
The drip of deception from White House should alarm us all. No time for Congressional dithering. Potential compromise of National Security must be handled MONDAY 3/4!
Thousand Oaks' Borderline Bar and Grill is as unlikely a place of mass murder as a Pittsburgh's Tree of Life Synagogue. Congress must act to strengthen background checks, red flag warning laws, magazine capacity and the other predictable points of failure in our gun safety laws. Congress should act on Tuesday morning!
Government by Executive Order rather than Congressional law-making does not work. Just as President Trump has used Executive Orders to reverse President Obama's Executive Orders, the next President will reverse President Trump's Executive Orders creating uncertainty in every area of American life. Congress needs to step up and do it's job.
