GOP congressman introduces his own ‘Warren Buffett Act’

Louisiana Republican Rep. Steve Scalise will introduce his own Warren Buffett-inspired legislation tonight, but this one has the support of conservatives likeGrover Norquist. Scalise’s “Warren Buffett Act of 2011” will instruct the IRS to provide a checkbox on Americans’ income tax forms so that those who feel they are not paying enough in taxes can easily and conveniently do so — without forcing an entire change in the tax code. “The President is running around the country saying that he wants to raise taxes on our nation’s small businesses, and ...

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) Takes on the Christmas Tree Tax

Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA) has introduced a joint resolution “disapproving [of] the rule of the Agricultural Marketing Service of the Department of Agriculture with respect to the establishment of a Christmas tree promotion, research, and information program.” We applaud the Congressman for jumping on this issue, which was highlighted yesterday by The Heritage Foundation’s David Addington and resulted in the tax being “delayed” several hours later. In a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mr. Addington writes of the proposed tax: “In ...

Scalise's bill to give BP fines to Gulf stat. picks up steam

Supporters of legislation to give the five Gulf states 80 percent of any Clean Water Act fines paid as a result of last year's Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster got another co-sponsor last week: Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska. That brings the number of co-sponsors to 27. Stephen Bell, spokesman for Rep. Steve Scalise, R-Jefferson, the bill's lead sponsor, said Young's backing is significant because he was the original sponsor of the 1990 Oil Pollution Act, which sets current rules for oil and gas spills. A hearing on the Scalise legislation is scheduled before the House Transportation and ...

Scalise: FCC Chairs Set Top Box Plan An "Unlawful Power Grab"
WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the following statement in response to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler’s set top box proposal: “Chairman Wheeler’s set top box proposal is a dangerous step backward in the effort to modernize the way the video space is regulated. Instead of empowering innovators, the creation of a new government-mandated IP licensing board will have a chilling effect on the video app market. This proposal is an unlawful power grab by the FCC, allowing them to dictate content licensing terms. The consequences of these additional layers of red tape will be severe, as they will undoubtedly stifle innovation and drastically altar the way in which people watch and enjoy television. It is not too late, and in fact I strongly encourage the FCC to abandon this power grab and instead work with us to create a system that unleashes innovators and benefits consumers.”
Scalise, McCarthy, and Brady Object to IRS Misuse of Taxpayer Info
WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Ca.) and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tx.) today sent a letter to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen requesting information related to a partnership between Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the IRS, and their use of sensitive taxpayer information for an Obamacare marketing outreach campaign.  The letter is in response to a recent CMS fact sheet, entitled “Strengthening the Marketplace by Covering Young Adults,” which discusses the Obama Administration’s plans to advertise insurance options to individuals who previously sought exemptions from the law’s individual mandate or paid a penalty.   In the letter to Commissioner Koskinen, the members underscore that this campaign raises legal and privacy concerns. “We strongly object to any action by the Administration to improperly use sensitive taxpayer informat
Halting Tax Increases on the Middle Class
WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the following statement regarding House passage of H.R. 3590, the Halt Tax Increases on the Middle Class and Seniors Act: “Obamacare is a disaster, and that’s why I’ve worked tirelessly to repeal that failed law and replace it with a patient-centered plan that is affordable for hardworking taxpayers. One of the many ways Obamacare hurts hardworking Americans is through a sinister tax hike that targets millions of seniors and middle-class families who are already struggling with costly medical bills. These Americans should never be forced to shoulder the financial burden of President Obama’s failed healthcare law, and the legislation we passed today eliminates this harmful tax once and for all. I thank my colleague Martha McSally for her leadership on this issue that is so critical to help millions of Americans.”
Cash On Delivery: The preferred method of payment in Iran
WASHINGTON, DC –House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today at a House Leadership press conference discussed home-grown terrorism and the consequences of the Obama Administration’s cash payments to Iran, the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism: Remarks: “This weekend, we continued to see more terrorism coming to American soil -- in this case, more home-grown terrorism, which is an increasing problem. The House has taken action over the last few months to address home-grown terrorism. The Senate needs to take action on that. The president needs to step up his actions. “But one thing we're going to do this week, and I want to thank Chairman Royce and his committee for their leadership on confronting this ransom payment that the president made to Iran. When the initial word came out that $400 million was sent in unmarked bills on an unmarked plane to, in essence, exchange that money for American hostages, it sent a chilling signal. But what we heard from the White Ho
