Congressman Don Bacon: 

Last week in Congress:
I was grateful to have Omaha Fire Department Assistant Chief Kathy Bossman as my guest at the State of the Union in Washington, D.C. For the past two years, I have invited a first responder from the district to show my appreciation for their hard work and dedication to our community. Here in D.C. for the very first time, Kathy was able to visit several historical monuments such as the White House, Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial. Kathy was also able to attend Rep. McCarthy’s State of the Union Reception at the Capitol before the address. I admire and appreciate Kathy’s strong work ethic to serve and protect the Omaha community.
The President delivered a hopeful speech where he called for compromise, compassion, and bipartisan solutions to immigration, healthcare, national security, and trade.

This week in Congress
Yesterday, I introduced the LEOSA Reform Act, which expands concealed-carry capabilities for qualified off-duty and retired law enforcement officers. The original cosponsors of this bill are Rep. Pete Stauber (MN-08) and Rep. John Rutherford (FL-04)

Last night we held a tele-town hall to hear from constituents in the Second District. Approximately 1200 people called in with their questions. These offer an opportunity for me to connect with constituents while I am in DC.

In the District
Last week I visited Omaha’s Rejuvenating Women, a faith-based non-profit organization that provides hope and rehabilitation to survivors of human trafficking. I appreciate all of the hard work Rejuvenating Women has done for women and young girls. They offer various therapeutic services and proper resources such as legal services, individual and group therapy, life-skills classes, and comprehensive medical care. We must stop human trafficking and pass legislation that helps programs such as these that assist victims of sex trafficking.

I was also fortunate enough to visit Family Lutheran Services in Omaha to discuss foster and adoption programs, veteran services, and mental health resources that are offered to the community. LFS is doing great work for veterans, families and children. Being a foster and now adoptive parent myself, I believe it is important to have more legislative efforts that aid our veterans and families that rely on facilities like LFS.

Earlier that week, my staff hosted an educational Lunch and Learn webinar about the devastating and horrific events of the Holocaust. The panel included: Scott Littky, the Executive Director at the Institute for Holocaust Education; Kael Sagheer, the Education Coordinator at the Institute for Holocaust Education; and Dr. Franklin Thomas, a former Omaha City Council member and leader of the Omaha’s Human Rights and Relationship departments. Dr. Fred Kader, a Holocaust survivor, also joined the discussion panel to share his story. I look forward to having more educational webinars that bring together the Omaha community and engage in civil discussions about our nation’s history and how we can make a difference in our district.

DON’T LET THE LEFT WIN BY DEFAULT: SUPPORT THE TRUMP AGENDA.
NTF worksheet: president36.doc. 2-17.
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!

8TH ANNUAL INDEPENDENCE DAY TEA PARTY HUGELY SUCCESSFUL!

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.

Milton Friedman - Redistribution of Wealth

Do you agree with Warren Buffet that no parent should let their children inherit enough wealth so they didn't have to work?  Did you know that Buffet favors a 100% inheritance tax?  No? What about a free market approach?  Would you choose instead Milton Friedman's classic argument against the inheritance tax altogether?   Read more »
