A Note from My Congressman, Erik Paulsen

Today I wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal responding to Senator Rubio’s recent comments on the tax reform bill.  

From the Wall Street Journal:

Last Friday’s upbeat jobs report was the latest sign that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has strengthened the American economy and helped working families. But this success hasn’t satisfied all the skeptics. My friend and colleague, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, argued in a recent interview that a different approach to tax reform, including a smaller corporate rate cut, would have more directly benefited workers. Based on all the evidence—including the analysis of the Joint Economic Committee, which I chair—I must respectfully disagree.

When House Republicans crafted the tax-reform law last year, our priority was to boost the economy so workers could thrive. Cutting the U.S. corporate tax rate from the highest in the developed world to a competitive 21% wasn’t a luxury. It was a crucial step to prevent the loss of American headquarters and jobs to other nations.

For proof that the gains of tax reform are already flowing to American workers, Sen. Rubio need only ask the nonpartisan analysts who advise Congress on economic matters. The Bureau of Economic Analysis recently reported that real disposable income—workers’ inflation-adjusted earnings, after taxes—rose 3.4% in the first quarter of this year. The bureau specifically credited tax reform for higher wages as well as lower taxes.

Even the Congressional Budget Office, which tends to play down the growth effects of tax relief, estimates the tax law will create nearly one million new jobs over the coming decade, along with higher wages and near-term annual growth of more than 3%. The Joint Committee on Taxation finds that cutting corporate taxes will generate long-term wage growth, and that tax reform will draw foreign investment to the U.S., producing strong benefits for workers.

The good news for workers keeps pouring in, as more than 530 companies have announced bonuses, pay raises and more-generous benefits for employees, as well as utility rate cuts for customers and corporate expansions. Americans for Tax Reform estimates more than four million workers have received bonuses.

In addition to benefits from the business side of tax reform, the tax savings on the personal side mean that a typical family of four earning $75,000 will pay $2,000 less in taxes this year than in 2017.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act wasn’t perfect, and Congress should continue to improve the tax code by adding more individual tax relief and making the current cuts permanent. But no matter how you slice it, working families are benefiting from tax reform. And as the pro-growth effects of the tax cuts continue to work their way through the economy, the best is yet to come.

Sen. Rubio is right to want to ensure that America’s economic policy favors working families—that’s why I supported him during his presidential primary campaign. But as we continue to work on Americans’ behalf, we should recognize the success tax reform has already achieved and use it as a foundation to go further.

Mr. Paulsen, a Republican, is U.S. representative from Minnesota’s Third District and chairman of the Joint Economic Committee.

Eric Paulsen



This morning I watched   the entire morning television presentation of the fascistic plotting  Democrat Charlie Schumer’s Senators lying, conning, distorting, stalling, obstructing the confirmation of a highly qualified, intelligent woman, Gina Haspel, to become head of the CIA.   This fascist plot to disrupt an administration is new to our Congress.  It is plotted by today’s Democrats in Congress.

It is  unfortunate Charlie Schumer’s fascistic leftist American citizens, voters and otherwise called “Democrats”, aren’t forced to spend a day or two in the good old Soviet Union…..even the one without the slaughterer of millions of the state’s citizens,  Josef Stalin.

In 1966 I received a NDEA grant to join a group of twenty American master’s degree level  of American Russian language teachers  to absorb the language according to ‘natives’ of European Soviet Union that August.  I had never experienced life in a police state much less one whose  citizens avoided speaking in public  unless forced to by ‘authorities’.

Today’s Democrats in Congress led by Charles Schumer, Mark Schiff, Richard Blumenthal, Kamala Harris, Ron Wyden, Martin Heinrich, even Dianne Feinstein and countless other Marxist-likes have chosen to play slimy games, lying, cheating, sabotaging, concocting scenarios to cripple and destroy the leadership of our duly elected 45th American President, Donald J. Trump.

This is a newbie for our America, a fascist revolutionary attempt  consistent with the George Soros money and the Barack Hussein Obama promise in November,  2008 to change America forever  (by “Sovietizing” America through dictating  education,  communications, the economy, and the FBI),  to destroy the Trump presidency.

“Obstruct, destroy”  everything conservative possible”, is the fascist Democrat call for political revolution….in the streets, in schools, in Congress…where ever!!

I returned to the Soviet Union October 1990 when it was on the verge of  collapsing as a Communist state.   A local Twin City Protestant religious group had collected quite a sum of money they had raised to donate  “in person by group” to the hospitalized victims of the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl.

While in Soviet police state Kiev, a morning when I was shaving, housed  in a room on the twelfth floor of a newly built hotel room without working elevators,  despite closed windows I heard whistles, the manufactured kind being blown from thousands of  human breath from  the plaza and streets below.

Soviet Communism 70 plus years in the Ukraine, was ruled by   vile, conniving  leftist revolutionaries, killers of the democratic process akin to our Charlie Schumers, Mark Schiffs, Ron Wydens, Richard Blumenthals and  other Communist George Soros financed Obama type neoDemocrats  of our America over the last ten years, began its  collapse in Kiev that day.  The whistlers, by the thousands, came to surround Kiev’s Communist Party headquarters building that day.   Tanks, motor-pooled, countless in number, were visible and  in reserve less than  a mile away.  They remained silent.   Please read the article below!

Jason Whitlock on Kanye: If You Say Trump Has A Good Idea, You Get Kicked Out Of The Black Race

Sports journalist Jason Whitlock explains why Kanye’s tweet about President Trump was one of the best tweets of all time in a Tuesday appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

Whitlock lamented that the African-American vote has been taken for granted by the Democratic party and that blacks have made a mistake by swallowing liberalism wholly. Whitlock noted the historical importance of the church in black history and said liberalism and the Democratic is now the church for blacks and it is “not working out for us.”

He also spoke about the backlash musician Kanye West has received for his decision to come out and say he supports some policies of President Donald Trump. Whitlock said of course Kanye doesn’t agree with Trump and the Republican party on a lot of issues but he is someone willing to acknowledge a good idea.

Whitlock said that type of thinking puts you at risk of being “kicked out of the black race.” He said if we cast someone out of the human race just because we disagree with them then we would have no one left.

“I don’t really like politics much at all, but if you just say I think Trump has a good idea here, you get kicked out of the black race,” the sportswriter told Tucker Carlson. “Kanye is saying I don’t agree with everything Trump believes in. Kanye, I’m sure, disagrees with Trump and the Republican party and conservatives on a lot of issues but he’s not willing to cast someone out of the human race just because he disagrees with him. If I cast everybody out that I disagreed with I would have no one.”

He also blacks have to examine why they are the only group that has gone all in with one party and why they are “chained” to an ideology that hasn’t worked out for the race for the last 60 years.

“I think we’ve made a mistake,” Whitlock said.

He also knocked writer Ta-Nehisi Coates who believes he is the “overseer of black thought.”

Whitlock made an interesting comparison of the Democratic party being marketed to black Americans as the solution to all the race’s problems like cigarettes were decades ago.

“It’s been marketed to us the same as cigarettes — fashionable, sophisticated, it’s supposed to be liberating but I think it needs a Surgeon General’s warning, hazardous to your family and all the values you were taught as a child,” he said of liberalism.

JASON WHITLOCK: I think what Kanye is trying to do open black America’s mind to the fact that perhaps we have chosen a bad strategy by swallowing all of the Democratic party and liberalism whole. I say in my column in The Wall Street Journal that in the immediate aftermath of the civil rights movement in the 1960s Democrats marketed to us liberalism as the solution to all of our problems and liberalism now is like the cigarette. It’s been marketed to us the same as cigarettes — fashionable, sophisticated, it’s supposed to be liberating but I think it needs a Surgeon General’s warning, hazardous to your family and all the values you were taught as a child.

I think us as African-Americans, we have to examine why are we the only ethnic group that has gone in wholly with one political party? No one has to compete for our votes. We are chained to an ideology that just isn’t working over the last 50, 60 years. Liberalism, the swallowing of it whole. Our families have been destroyed. Our children lost and confused. Our black men incarcerated and emasculated and we’ve moved away from the traditional values that have always defined us. I think we’ve made a mistake.

TUCKER CARLSON: The thing about politics is if you give your vote away for free you don’t get anything in return. And so maybe the hysterical reactions to the Kanye West tweet is the reaction of a party that knows that once people figure that out it’s got a major problem on its hands, so you need to tamp down any independent thought immediately or else it can get out of control.

WHITLOCK: And it’s being tamped down as viciously as anything I’ve ever seen. When they call in the great writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates, basically I call him the overseer of black thought. Basically he is there to keep everyone in line with the groupthink that the only solution is liberalism for black America’s problems.

If that were the case our problems would be being solved much faster because 90, 95% of us are afraid to even admit that we have conservative values and we have been sold — we’ve moved away from our church. We’ve been the most religious people in America for years, hundreds of years and we’re moving more secular. We’re moving away from the church. Our religion now is liberalism and the Democratic party is our church and it’s just not working for us.

CARLSON: So if Kanye West, who is not just one of those popular black Americans, but one of those popular Americans just across the board, if he doesn’t stand a chance of just raising this question because it’s a totally valid question, then who does?

WHITLOCK: Well, actually he does stand a chance because when someone like Kanye speaks out, he creates space for others to speak out because anybody that has said — Tucker, I am a non-voter.

I don’t really like politics much at all, but if you just say I think Trump has a good idea here, you get kicked out of the black race. Kanye is saying I don’t agree with everything Trump believes in. Kanye, I’m sure, disagrees with Trump and the Republican party and conservatives on a lot of issues but he’s not willing to cast someone out of the human race just because he disagrees with him. If I cast everybody out that I disagreed with I would have no one.
