Exclusive: Black Americans For A Better Future wary of Senate GOP’s tax bill

Published

on

Members of Black Americans For A Better Future told Big League Politics that they are happy President Donald J. Trump’s support of tax reform, the bill in the House, but concerned about what version that passed the Senate.

“I consider this administration to be about promises made, and promises kept,” said Raynard Jackson, chairman of the BAFABF.

“We know we can’t get anything done unless we are at the table,” Jackson said.

“Members of the Trump administration are getting called racist, but after numerous administrations ignored us, Trump’s is the only administration helping my group get to the table,” he said.

The House bill passed Nov. 16, with 227 Republicans voting for its passage and no Democrats.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R.-Wash.), the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, she the House had made history.

“This is a historic moment. It’s been 31 years since the tax code was fundamentally reformed,” she said.

“We’re looking out for middle class families who deserve the same chance as everyone else to get ahead,” she said.

“The hardworking men and women of America deserve a tax code that puts them first,” the congresswoman said. “We’ve created a plan that rewards hard work, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and levels the playing field so that everyone plays by the same rules.”

In early October, Jackson’s group presented a white paper titled: “Black Entrepreneurs Keys to Economic Improvement 2017,” to McMorris Rodgers and Stephen K. Bannon, Trump’s former chief White House strategist and now the executive chairman of Breitbart News.

The group’s research showed that access to capital was a problem due to diminishing numbers of community banks, Jackson said.

Bannon told a private group at a Nov. 2 meeting in South Carolina: “Minority entrepreneurs are the biggest customers of community banks and you know why they didn’t get recapitalized? Because nobody cares. When it comes time to make the deals, you’re not in the room.”

Jackson’s group appeared on Capitol Hill Oct.25, along with Rodgers, chairwoman of the House GOP conference, at a conference called the Faces of Tax Reform.

“I pray the Senate will finally hear our message.  Obama didn’t do this much for us,” Jackson said.  In 2008, President Barack H. Obama ran on a platform of assisting the black community getting assistance with small business in urban areas.

Kenneth McClenton, president of The Exceptional Conservative Network and member of Jackson’s group, said he has been involved in the process from the white paper to Capitol Hill, told Big League Politics: “President Trump’s administration is keeping their promises to us.”

Yet, McClenton said he is concerned about the bill in the Senate. “In truth, I believe that the Senate will sabotage the bill to surrender Congress to the Democrats.”

He is especially worried about Sen. Susan M. Collins (R.-Maine), Sen. Lisa A. Murkowski (R.-Alaska) and Sen. John S. McCain III (R.-Ariz.), because he suspects they will betray the voters, he said.

“The Senate’s resistance to the Trump agenda puts at risk economic growth and individual prosperity,” he said.

OUT OUT OUT: Study Shows That Each Illegal Alien is Up to a $6,500-Per-Year Burden for the U.S. Taxpayer

The cost of illegal immigration is massive.

Published

on

A ground-breaking new study has shown that illegal immigrants cost the U.S. taxpayer approximately $6,500 per year by soaking up welfare cash and other government benefits after they break the law to enter the country.

The study, commissioned by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), showed that that small states are particularly burdened by the illegals, and the money and services are going to aliens instead of veterans, children, and the disabled.

FAIR surveyed ten small states and determined that illegal immigration cost them an average of $454 million per year.

“To put that figure into context, that $454 million expenditure is more than 200 times what the state of Montana budgets for its entire Veterans Affairs program, and it is 2.5 times the total sum that West Virginia invests in its state university,” the report states.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, notes that the native populations of these small states are getting squeezed the most by the burden caused by illegal immigrants. These individuals are essentially being replaced as a once-great nation transforms into a globalist economic zone.

“In many ways, the influx of immigrants into less populous areas of the country has an even greater impact on long-time residents than it does in larger and more urban areas,” Stein said.

“These areas have neither the tax base, nor the economic and social infrastructure to accommodate the needs of the growing numbers of immigrants taking up residence,” he added.

The FAIR study, Small Migrant Populations, Huge Impacts, analyzed Alaska, West Virginia, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Montana, Mississippi, North Dakota and Maine to discover their startling conclusions regarding the costs of illegal immigration.

“Many local officials tout immigration, including illegal immigration, as a remedy to economic stagnation. However, as this report reveals, the reality is precisely the opposite,” Stein said.

“Illegal immigration, in particular, drives down wages and inhibits job opportunities for legal residents, while bringing more low-skilled, low-wage workers to these states. In turn, this increases costs to state and local governments, and discourages investment by businesses seeking a skilled labor force and lower overhead,” he added.

FAIR released the following video to accompany their newly released study:

“This report highlights the fact that the adverse effects of unchecked mass immigration, combined with an immigration selection process that does not choose people based on individual merit, job skills and education, are now being felt in all parts of the country,” Stein explained.

“Americans, in every part of the nation, are being affected by antiquated and unenforced immigration policies, which is why it is at the top of the list of voter concerns heading into the 2020 elections,” he added.
