It is Best to Prepare for the Days of Necessity

A wise reminder from the old Aesop Fable and it appears Congress is indeed moving forward with pragmatic plans to help Americans improve their retirement savings prospects. Programs such as 401(k)s and IRAs were created to incentivize employees to save for the future but many folks find the products too complicated, intimidating or not available.

FreedomWorks’ Bill of the Month for March 2019: EPIC Act, H.R. 191 and S. 438

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for March 2019 is the End Pensions in Congress (EPIC) Act, H.R. 191 and S. 438, sponsored by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) and Sens. Mike Braun (R-Ind.) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.). The EPIC Act would terminate pensions for members of Congress, and force them to save for retirement in the same way that most private Americans do, by responsibly contributing to 401(k)-type plans.

A Last Shot at Reining in IRS Abuse of Asset Forfeiture in the 115th Congress

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a long, well-documented history of abusing federal forfeiture laws. They seize assets from innocent Americans on the mere suspicion of malfeasance. If the IRS believes a citizen is structuring deposits to avoid reporting requirements, the agency can seize your money. Administrative reforms were made in 2015 to roll back some abuses, but there is still much work to be done.

Obama Plans His Own Retirement, Vetoes Bill to Repeal Fiduciary Rule

Last month, the Senate voted 56-41 to rescind the Department of Labor’s “Fiduciary Rule” using the Congressional Review Act. This was after a House vote of 234-183 to repeal the regulation. Under the Congressional Review Act, the House and the Senate reserve the right to jointly overrule unnecessary or burdensome acts of regulatory overreach. Today, as promised, President Obama has blocked Congress' efforts to deregulate. This is the 10th veto of the Obama presidency.
