An American Tax System Makeover

After years of rising tax rates and intensifying frustration among individuals and corporations, it appears the American tax system is finally getting the makeover it needs. President Trump unveiled a tax plan which, at its core, will grow America’s economy. By slashing corporate and individual tax rates, this plan will encourage more business to be done in our great country and result in more money in all our pockets. Under the current tax system, corporations are taxed at some of the highest rates in the world.

Trump Ends Michelle Obama’s Policy of Starving Students

School lunches are no longer a depressing mass of unidentifiable and inedible paste that provides all the nutritional content needed by the average mouse. That's right. The Michelle Obama school lunch menu is headed into the wrong side of history. Yes, Michelle Obama had a dream - a humble dream - to starve children, to make students miserable. And Trump is depriving her of that dream. He and Ag Secretary Perdue moved to Make School Meals Great Again. [more...]
