It was in 1916 — 100 years ago this year — that America made a big, big mistake that has done significant damage to our economy and the fairness of our tax system for an entire century. We are talking about the estate tax, more popularly known as the death tax.
Following reports that Blue Cross Blue Shield is urging Congress to protect ObamaCare’s reinsurance program, which directs payments to health insurance plans with high-cost enrollees, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
There is an agency in Washington that spends over $7 billion per year and employs about 60,000 people nationwide, yet fails to do its one job 95% of the time when tested. Nearly half of the agency’s employees have received complaints for misconduct in the last three years. Private companies providing the identical services are 65% more efficient while costing taxpayers less money.
FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our Bill of the Month for September 2016 is S.1541, the Transportation Empowerment Act introduced by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), and its House counterpart, H.R. 2716 introduced by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla). These bills respect the principles of federalism, would cut the federal gas tax, and reduce bureaucracy. Talk about making freedom work.
FreedomWorks is pleased to name Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA) as our Congressman of the Month for September 2016 for his continued dedication to promoting Congressional principles, a balanced budget, conservative values, and limited government.
