The rhetoric says the credit is beautifully pro-life and, in taking it away, Congress is practically consigning children to lives in orphanages or being snuffed out in abortion. But is that accurate?
Republicans produced bills that would entrench current law: financially rewarding foreign aliens who come to the United States illegally and have children to help them remain here.
While a certain amount of taxation is necessary, we shouldn’t kid ourselves about its true nature. It’s a form of coerced taking.
Every single Democrat senator owes Hillsdale an apology for the blatant lies spread about the college during Senate debate over tax reform.
Four Republican senators have blocked Obamacare repeal. These same senators’ low-income constituents are among those most hurt by Obamacare’s individual mandate tax.
Speaker Paul Ryan promised the House bill would mean ‘bigger paychecks’ for American workers, but some payments are coming straight from another taxpayer’s pocket.
To bring home a win, the White House and Congress need tax reform. To pass tax reform, they need to ensure middle-class families will meaningfully benefit.

The idea that we must rob from Peter to pay Paul has led to historic levels of taxation in this country and helped stifle economic growth for decades.
The U.S. corporate income tax system is awful and needs to be reformed, but it does not subsidize foreign imports or justify a border-adjusted tax.
By backing away from a border adjustment, Republicans are making a major mistake. This policy will help narrow the trade deficit and fund a tax cut for all domestic businesses.
These two changes would transfer workers’ share of the corporate tax onto American investors, who are so far the disproportionate beneficiaries of globalization.
