Spending Cuts and Debt
More on Spending Cuts and Debt
Iowa Congressman David Young supported H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act, also known as the rescission package, which passed the House of Representatives this evening.
"Washington has a spending problem and this rescissions package brings back taxpayer dollars which either can't be spent or were unused - this is simply Iowa commonsense," said Congressman Young.
On March 23, 2018, President Trump signed legislation funding the government until the end of the fiscal year. The bill was not perfect and the process was not ideal.

They sent me to make sure our policies and programs help Iowans.

It’s been difficult to hear or see the reality over the blaring and flashing “BREAKING NEWS” alerts which fill the airwaves continuously each broadcast hour.
The reality is the most common sounds coming from the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2017 are the words “the bill is passed”.
The week ahead overview will be sent each week Congress is in session. All times are in Central Time.
Tax simplification has been a topic of discussion since the 115th Congress began in January of this year. The debate has moved from "if" Congress will take steps to reform and simplify the federal tax code to "when" it will happen.
One major component of tax simplification will be through changes to federal income taxes.
