The 116th Congress will be one for the record books, but not in a positive way. Sadly, the United States House of Representatives is now controlled by the Democratic Party for the first time in eight years.
The Republicans lost their grip on power for a variety of reasons including their refusal to enact the agenda endorsed by the American people in the 2016 election. As a result, Democrats have the spotlight and the ability to consider horrible ideas such as the “Green New Deal” proposal being floated by 29-year-old socialist superstar U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). She wants to raise the top income tax rate from 37%to 70% to move the country toward zero carbon emissions. If any of her proposals are ever enacted into law, Venezuela here we come!
Democrats - Ocasio-Cortez - Tax - Rates - Country
It is ridiculous that Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez want to double tax rates after the country’s economy has been booming due to the policies of President Donald Trump. Among his many accomplishments during his first two years as President was the passage of massive tax cuts that have spurred robust economic growth. The tax cuts also helped the labor market, which grew by an astounding 312,000 new jobs in December.
Along with abysmal policies, there will be plenty of abysmal behavior from the new Congress. For example, new U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), did not waste any time in using vulgar language to refer to the President of the United States. On her first night as a new member of Congress, Tlaib vowed to “impeach the mother…er” at a reception hosted by a progressive organization. Instead of being greeted by groans and angry demands for an apology, Tlaib received cheers from her group of supporters. This type of nasty insult is certainly unprecedented in recent political history.
