The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus posted on social media his satisfaction with today’s vote in the House to approve the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, 227-203, a significant reworking of the federal tax code and the eighth largest tax cut in U.S. history.
“The Senate will pass the bill later this evening, and following that, it will go to the President’s desk as soon as tonight,” said Rep. Mark R. Meadows (R.-N.C.).
The bill before both chambers is the compromise crafted by the conference committee made up of delegates from the House and the Senate, who were tasked with reconciling the differences between the bills each chamber had previously passed. The conference committee has the authority to write a completely new bill from scratch, unless the conferees have specific instructions from their chamber.
Today, we're giving the American people their money back. We're making American businesses more competitive. And we’re finally igniting the kind of economic growth that every American deserves.

Once each chamber passes the conference-produced bill, it is sent to the president.
Meadows said the victory of President Donald J. Trump’s tax bill is a promise kept to the American people.
“The forgotten men and women of our country voted to elect President Trump and a Republican Congress to fix our broken tax code that taxes Americans too highly, ships their jobs overseas, and directly undermines the fundamental principles that make America great,” he said.
“All of that changes today,” the congressman said.
“We’re giving the American people their money back. We’re making the country more competitive for job creation and wage growth. And we’re igniting the kind of economic growth that every American deserves,” he said. “Business as usual is over.”
Deranged Democrat Demands Prosecution of 40,000 Trump Supporters Who Were OUTSIDE Capitol
Guilt by association.
Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee implied that every protestor who was outside of the Capitol on January 6th should face criminal prosecution in a Tuesday tweet threat, utilizing a “guilt-by-association” theory more commonly associated with the criminal justice system of third world countries.
Jackson Lee falsely claimed that the 40,000 protestors who arrived in the area of the Capitol in January all intended to overturn the election by killing the Speaker of the House, Mike Pence, and Members of Congress. In reality, there’s little to no reason that anyone outside of small handful of easily manipulated cosplayers intended to become seriously violent.
2/4 alleged that 40,000 protesters were in DC with the mindset to overturn a legitimate election and to kill the Speaker, the Vice President, and Members of Congress, in that instance, only 300 persons have now been arrested and are being prosecuted. What kind of justice is that?

Only a small minority of the protestors present at the January 6th protest engaged in any criminal trespassing and violent conduct. Peaceful protestors present at the event in fact urged those breaking boundaries to stop, likening them to Antifa criminals. Hundreds of individuals present at the event are being prosecuted- in some cases, on dubious grounds. Jackson Lee’s proposal would criminalize peaceful protest in a direct fashion.
Jackson Lee compared the peaceful protestors to Portland’s enduring anarchist criminal movement, ignoring that the January 6th event hasn’t repeated on a nightly basis in a fashion analogous to the anarcho-tyrannical city. While street criminals have been arrested at the Portland protests, Multnomah County’s left-wing prosecutor, Mike Schmidt, has consistently dropped criminal charges against nearly every arrestee involved in left-wing street violence.
1/4 Testimony today on the Hill evidences that in the Portland protests, a thousand people were arrested. People protesting against the violence that was evidenced in the George Floyd murder. People wanting good things to happen. In Washington DC on January 6th, where it is
— Sheila Jackson Lee (@JacksonLeeTX18) March 3, 2021
Lee also likened left-wing rioters in Portland to “good people wanting good things to happen,” excusing systemic violence because she supports the aims of those who commit it.
Under the fist of anarcho-tyranny, there is no such thing as a neutral standard of “law.” There’s domination- impunity for those who obey those who wield the levers of political power, and severity against those who dare to challenge it though peaceful protest.
