1. Time to Repeal ObamaCare - by Sen. Rand Paul via USA Today
There are those who insist Republicans must act as a team to repeal Obamacare. I agree — if the topic is repeal. Every Republican has run on repealing Obamacare for seven years, and all but one voted for clean repeal in 2015. Now we have a president who will sign it and is asking for us to send the same repeal bill to his desk, one that repeals with a two-year window to work with. We also have a majority leader who has said he will bring this vote to the Senate floor.
I’m encouraged by the fact that the original bill, which did not keep our promises to repeal, is dead. It’s a great step forward that we plan to take up the 2015 repeal bill instead. Read more here...

Obama’s IRS was one of the most corrupt government agencies in his administration. Lois Lerner used it to target innocent conservatives, then Obama’s crony IRS Commissioner John Koskinen covered it up!

Unfortunately the IRS’ abuse of power didn’t stop there. They hired corporate henchmen to carry out their audits (which was illegal) and THEN passed a regulation to make it legal!

That’s why FreedomWorks is asking you to contact President Trump right now. Urge him to repeal this crony IRS regulation today.
After conservative senators opposed the Senate healthcare bill, known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA), President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have agreed to put forward a bill based upon the 2015 Obamacare repeal bill that would repeal large parts of the Affordable Care Act.
Adam Brandon, chief executive for FreedomWorks, urged Americans to contact their senators and tell them to vote yes on an Obamacare repeal bill. He cautioned that even moderate senators such as Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Dean Heller (R-NV), and Rob Portman (R-OH) voted to repeal Obamacare in 2015. Read more here...
Members of the House Freedom Caucus are withholding support for the House GOP budget as lawmakers prepare for a committee vote on Wednesday. The Freedom Caucus members are pressing for double the budget’s $200 billion in proposed cuts to mandatory spending, and they want details on a coming tax reform package.
The budget itself has little importance in setting actual spending limits for the government. But it is highly important in setting up the rules for tax reform. “The only reason you need a budget is for reconciliation. So if that’s the only reason we’re doing it, we’d like to know what the savings will be like and what tax reform is going to look like,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), a Freedom Caucus leader, told The Hill. Read more here...

Imagine you have a dispute with your credit card company. Currently, you can go to an arbitration body, where the card company will almost certainly pay all your expenses, and you may get compensated in full, usually promptly. Now, thanks to a new rule, courtesy of the inaptly named Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the regulatory agency unleashed by the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, that won’t happen.
Instead, you’ll have to wait for trial lawyers to form a “class” that includes you, wait years while the lawyers do whatever it is they do, probably never see court, and then rejoice in a small refund, while the lawyers pocket millions. It’s what passes for “consumer protection” these days. Read more here...
