Congressman Don Bacon Will Hold 7th Town Hall Meeting October 16th

His newsletter states:
Residents of the Second Congressional District are invited to attend Congressman Don Bacon’s (NE-02) seventh town hall on Monday, October 16 at Papillion-LaVista High School from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. I committed to hosting seven town halls across the district so I could hear from many constituents on issues important to them. The first six were held on Saturdays so that those who work during the week would be able to attend. This town hall is on a weeknight to reach those who may not have been able to attend a previous one. 

August recess was a productive work period for my staff and I, with usually five to seven events a day. These events included discussions on international trade, meeting with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, speaking with employees at ConAgra, 3M, Green Plains Inc. and Kellogg’s, and meeting with the Hispanic Chamber.  I also hosted a Small Business and Federal Contracting Seminar and a Paths to Success: Education Forum that were both open to the public. And, I was at Omaha North High School for my sixth, of seven, town halls. Earlier in the recess period, I spent a day learning about the diverse energy portfolio of Nebraska’s Second Congressional District, and Joe McClelland, Director of the Office of Energy Infrastructure Security-a division of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, joined me at a forum with energy leaders to discuss energy infrastructure security.

Approximately 75 people attended the Small Business Seminar.  Attendees heard about my bill, the Small Businesses Know-Before-You-Bid Construction Act of 2017, H.R. 2350, which will provide more transparency to the costs and risk for subcontractors when preparing bids to particular federal agencies. I also spoke about a bill I have co-sponsored, H.R. 1700 the SCORE for Small Business Act of 2017. This bill will provide personal counseling, mentoring and coaching relating to the process of starting, expanding, managing, buying, and selling a business. The language of the bill was included in the House passed version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). 

Experts from the following agencies were in attendance to share their knowledge and give their advice: Defense Logistics Small Business, Defense Contracting Management Agency, Procurement Technical Assistance Center, 55th Wing Contracting-Small Businesses, US Army Corps of Engineers (Omaha District) Contracting, National Parks Service (Midwest Region) Contracting, Veterans Affairs Contracting and the Small Business Administration. 

I would also like to thank the local high school students, home-schoolers, parents, and adult learners from Nebraska’s Second Congressional District who came to the “Paths to Success” Education Fair where attendees learned about resources for accessing and affording higher education. Thank you as well to speakers from EducationQuest, College Possible, Nebraska Department of Education, and Metropolitan Community College who presented on critical topics such as applying for Federal Student Aid and private scholarships, college and SAT/ACT preparation, earning a General Education Diploma (GED), and other programs. 

At the town hall, I answered questions about military readiness, health care, tax reform, political discourse, and small business. Several questions submitted centered on the same theme: how to grow business in North Omaha and how to eradicate the race divide in jobs and the economy. One piece of legislation I have co-sponsored to address this is H.R. 2056, the Microloan Modernization Act, which will incentivize low income individuals to start and operate their own small businesses through an increased loan pool. H.R. 2056 will add more flexibility with the intensive marketing, management, and technical assistance grant funds directed to lenders from the Small Business Administration. This has passed the House, but has not yet passed the Senate.

I am also a co-sponsor of H.R. 1242, the 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act, which specifically calls for the establishment of the 400 Years of African-American History Commission. The legislation directs the commission to “plan programs to acknowledge the impact that slavery and laws that enforced racial discrimination had on the United States.” These directives include: 1) planning programs to acknowledge the impact that slavery and laws that enforced racial discrimination had on the United States; 2) encouraging civic, patriotic, historical, educational, artistic, religious, and economic organizations to organize and participate in anniversary activities; 3) assisting states, localities, and nonprofit organizations to further the commemoration; and 4) coordinating for the public scholarly research on the arrival of Africans in the United States and their contributions to this country.

NTF Tax Day Rally

NTF hosted a taxpayers’ rally
at Walnut Grove Park in Omaha, NE on Monday, April 17. Keynote speaker was Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert. Other speakers included City Council members Aimee Melton and Brinker Harding. (See NEWS for more photos.)

Even before President Trump assumed office, the virulent Left was plotting and conspiring to destroy his conservative agenda and presidency. Similar to how the Communist Party organizes its cells, the Left has mobilized and continues to organize small groups of radical activists, already a formidable opposition movement. Trained by veteran community organizers, these groups steadily are engaging in a variety of efforts, including mass marches, confrontations at public meetings, saturating congressional offices with emails and phone calls, and media interviews. The Liberal media not only offers them the means to reach a large segment of the public but also offers them selective favorable coverage while portraying conservatives and our President in a negative way. The Left has begun harassing the offices of conservative congressmen with sit-ins, intrusive videos, and other disruptions, obstructing and frightening their staff. By maintaining relentless pressure on conservative representatives and senators, Hate Trump leftists seek to weaken their political ties to and votes with the Trump Administration. Loud and brash, these radicals pledge a continuous resistance to Trump initiatives. Their ranks swell with the subsidized and non-working proletariat, flush with high school and college students radicalized by their union teachers and Marxist professors.

Stung by the Trump freeze on federal hiring and his pledge to “drain the swamp” in the federal bureaucracy, union employees are fighting back. Employees purposely leak memos and sabotage the Trump efforts to streamline and trim the bloated bureaucracy and slice away waste, inefficiencies, and fraud. Agency employees use their government computers to post messages and commentary contrary to the President’s directives. This entrenched, intransigent civil service can slow the progress of Trump rules and regulations. The liberal federal bureaucracy will sabotage the Trump Agenda as much as possible. Example: The Justice Dept. asst.-secretary who refused to enforce the Trump immigration restriction. Liberal federal judges try to block Trump reforms continually.

Congressional leftists in the House and Senate are plotting to delay, destroy, or at least dilute Trump legislation to lower taxes and spending, keep out Muslim terrorists, protect the lives of unborn babies, and rid commerce of strangling and job-killing rules and regulations.

The controlled, liberal print, radio, and TV media deliver daily poisonous commentary about the Trump Agenda, pounding the President on every issue with flagrantly biased coverage.

Liberal-controlled institutions like universities and increasingly our public schools churn out a steady pabulum of leftwing indoctrination, goading their students to protest and march against the Trump Agenda.

The international Left coordinates closely with their American comrades to mobilize simultaneous marches, riots, and attacks on private property and businesses.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
To confront, counter, and overwhelm this Leftist onslaught, conservatives must take action now! Though many conservatives gratefully volunteered to elect Donald Trump, now is not the time to fade into the political wilderness. Our President campaigned hard for us, won, and now has embarked on a journey to restore our nation to the constitutional foundation bestowed upon us by our Founding Fathers. He needs and deserves our help. Join us today to Make America Great Again!

Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom again protested the treatment of taxpayers by officeholders in Nebraska and Congress. “We continue to protest against taxes and illegal immigration,” said Doug Kagan, NTF president, “because elected officeholders continue to anger us with high taxes, higher debt, excessive spending, burdensome regulations on businesses, and undeserved privileges for illegal aliens.”

With themes of ” No Taxation without Representation” and “No Illegal Immigration without Representation,” taxpayers rallied on Friday, July 29, at Walnut Grove Park, 150th & Q Streets, Omaha.

Keynote speakers included Att.-Gen. Doug Peterson, Mayor Jean Stothert, congressional candidate Don Bacon, and Dr. Mark Christian from the Global Faith Institute speaking on radical Islam. Those attending visited and met with conservative state and local candidates and officeholders.

Our tea party also featured patriotic music, contests, drawings for prizes, and a Liberty Tree.

What about a free market approach?  Would you choose instead Milton Friedman's classic argument against the inheritance tax altogether?   Read more »
