President Trump on Wednesday made his closing argument for passing a sweeping tax reform package, dangling the prospect of Americans seeing tax cuts by February if Congress can pass a bill by Christmas.
“We're so close right now, so close,” the president said during a speech at the White House.
The president spoke as House and Senate negotiators were holding a meeting on a compromise plan that still must pass both chambers.

Right now, Obama's so-called "Clean Power Plan" threatens to destroy thousands of American jobs and cause your energy bill to skyrocket.
Thankfully President Trump and his conservative EPA Commissioner Scott Pruitt aren't going to let that happen.

Write a comment to President Trump's EPA right now. Tell them to support the president's efforts to repeal Obama’s Clean Power Plan today.

Occupational licenses make it harder for workers to pursue opportunities because getting licensed in another state often requires retaking classes and other time- and money-consuming requirements. Researchers have identified that phenomenon before—including in this wide-ranging report from the Brookings Institution—but the new working paper by Janna Johnson and Morris Kleiner takes a stab at figuring out exactly how many workers those state rules hurt. Read more here...
5. Four Reasons So-Called Net Neutrality Regulations Should Be Scrapped - via Competitive Enterprise Institute
CEI applauds the anticipated Federal Communications Commission vote to roll back the harmful 2015 Open Internet Order and replace it with the pro-consumer Internet Freedom Order. The new order means a return to the light-touch regulatory regime the Internet thrived under for twenty years.
