    The economy grew by just 1.2 percent in the second quarter, the Commerce Department announced today, while first quarter growth was revised downward to 0.8 percent. With our unrivalled workforce and abiding entrepreneurial spirit, America can do so much better than this.

    Congressman Devin Nunes (CA-22) issued the following statement today after House Republicans released their tax reform blueprint: “This is a really bold and aggressive plan that would essentially junk the current tax code and scrap the IRS as we know it. Measures like full expensing for business investment and the move toward a territorial tax system are exactly what the U.S. needs to create jobs, encourage start-up businesses, end the exodus of U.S. companies abroad, and regain our competitive ...

    This week I introduced in the House of Representatives a bill—the American Business Competitiveness Act (ABC Act)—that will reform the business tax code. Actually, my bill doesn't reform the code as much as it totally abolishes it and replaces it with some clear, simple rules that everyday, small-business owners can actually understand without help from accountants and lawyers. A key feature of the bill is that it eliminates all the loopholes and special deals that riddle the business tax code.... Read more
