Dem Tax Horrors, Part 3 🧟

Dem Tax Horrors, Part 3 🧟

Along with America’s workers and families, who else is on the Democrats’ tax-heavy chopping block? Small business ownersmost of whom will have to give more than 40% of their hard-earned money to the federal government if the liberals get their way.

The tax scheme Democrats proposed to pay for their $3.5 trillion spending bill would lob an extra 3.8% tax on many small business owners—on top of what they already owe. At the same time, it’d wipe out a tax deduction introduced under the Trump administration that freed up businesses to hire more people and raise workers’ wages. 

From farmers, to mom-and-pop shop owners, to innovative entrepreneurs, the Democrats’ tax hikes spare no one (except the far-left friends we discussed yesterday). It’s time for them to stop kneecapping the engines of America’s economy.

ATTN Biden: Taliban Leaders ARE Terrorists 😨

Republicans have hit the gas pedal on demanding justice from the Biden administration for its Afghanistan debacle, and they aren’t letting up anytime soon. Yesterday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) called on Biden’s team to formally declare the Taliban a terrorist organization. 

What criteria must an organization meet to fit the definition of “terrorist” under U.S. law? The group must be foreign, intent on engaging in terrorist activity and pose a threat to America’s national security. When it comes to the Taliban: check, check, and check. They’ve been terrorizing innocent people—including Americans—for decades. And the terrorists they just put in charge have direct ties to other terrorist groups—including al-Qaeda. 

One more thing: The Taliban hates America and everything America stands for. For all these reasons and more, the Biden administration needs to label it a terrorist organization. Now.
