Happy Tax Day

Resolute Reads

Happy Tax Day
-Washington Examiner
“Tax Day is always bad because Americans are overtaxed. But this Tax Day, we can celebrate the fact that an overwhelming majority of people are being taxed less, thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which Republicans passed in late 2017,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes. “No fewer than four out of every five taxpayers saw a reduction thanks to the law.”

From ‘No Crisis’ to ‘Breaking Point’: Mainstream Media Changes its Tune
-Fox News
“So let’s stick to one big, basic truth: There is no crisis at the southern border,” The Washington Post editorial board proclaimed after President Donald J. Trump’s State of the Union address in February. After U.S. officials apprehended or turned away more than 100,000 illegal immigrants crossing our southwest border last month, “the same media outlets are now scrambling to accurately portray the border crisis.”

The Fraying Edges of Universal Health Care
-The Washington Times
“If you’re wondering what Democrats have in mind when they tout 'Medicare For All,' look no further than England. There are more reports of the U.K.’s National Health System’s collapse, this time featuring horror stories of rationing care for the elderly,” Tammy Bruce writes. Government-run healthcare “is the ultimate in population control.”
US Weekly Jobless Claims Drop to the Lowest Level Since 1969
Weekly jobless claims dropped to a near 50-year low last week, pointing to America’s continued market strength, Reuters reports. “Initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 196,000 for the week ended April 6, the lowest level since early October 1969. Claims have now declined for four straight weeks.”
Pence Confronts Venezuelan Ambassador at UN: ‘You Shouldn’t Be Here’
-Fox News
“Vice President Pence called out Venezuela's United Nations ambassador to his face while addressing the body's Security Council on Wednesday -- a speech he used to declare it's time for Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro to step down,” Adam Shaw reports. The Vice President said it is time for the United Nations “to stand with the people of Venezuela as they march for freedom.”

The Worst Federal Student-Loan Program
-The Wall Street Journal
“College debt feels out of control. Outstanding student loan-liabilities, almost all from federal loans, have more than doubled since 2009, to $1.57 trillion,” Neal McCluskey and Diego Zuluaga of the Cato Institute write. “Recognizing the ever-increasing burden of student loans, the Trump administration has proposed limiting the amount of money available through PLUS loans . . . That may have the rare feature of being both a step in the right direction and an area of bipartisan agreement.”
A Serious Blow to Iran’s Terror Specialists
-New York Post
“In a bold step, President Trump has formally designated Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization — a move that carries serious financial implications for Tehran and lengthy prison terms for those who provide material support,” the New York Post editorial board writes. These sanctions are “vital to addressing the key elements that were deliberately omitted from the Obama nuke deal: Iran’s missile program and its fomenting of global terror.”
Trump Signs Executive Orders to Fast-Track Oil and Gas Pipelines
-The Daily Caller
“President Donald Trump signed a pair of executive orders aimed at speeding up oil and gas pipeline permitting, including limiting the ability of activists and states to block key energy projects,” Michael Bastasch reports. “President [Barack] Obama lamented the lack of shovel-ready jobs; President Trump is going straight to the operating engineers who will build our infrastructure to show how he will clean out the stables and make America stronger,” said Dan Kish, senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research.
