Pearce: Putting the American taxpayer and economy first

Pearce on fracking.
Translation: "pearce: putting corporate profits ahead of everyone and everything.

"I applaud the BLM today for putting the American economy and taxpayer first by rescinding this unnecessary regulation. Many of these Obama-era environmental rules were duplicative in nature and made in order solely to cripple energy production on federal lands. This doesn't better preserve our environment, but cuts off sources of revenues for states like New Mexico who rely on the production and development of resources to support our teachers, infrastructure, and more. From the very beginning, federal courts declared that the BLM did not have the proper authority to regulate hydraulic fracturing on public lands. By rescinding the rule altogether, the BLM upholds the rule of law and moves the nation closer towards becoming less reliant on foreign energy production. With that, New Mexico can once again have the opportunity to become a leader in energy development."

What total bullshit.

Tennessee: Signs are a safety hazard, but guns are OK

From USA Today Network:
Tennesseans will be allowed to bring their guns to the new home of the legislature but must leave any hand-held signs behind, according to a recently implemented policy.

The policy, which Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, R-Oak Ridge, and House Speaker Beth Harwell, R-Nashville, approved Dec. 14, expressly prohibits “hand-carried signs and signs on hand sticks” because they “represent a serious safety hazard.”

Is this sick or what?

Anonymous press release (pearce?)

From the Grant County Beat:

Washington, D.C. (December 18, 2017) Last Friday, the House and Senate Conference Committee released their final report of the compromised version of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. Today, the Tax Foundation released a preliminary economic analysis, highlighting overall economic effects this bill will achieve if passed and signed into law.

"… the plan would significantly lower marginal tax rates and the cost of capital, which would lead to a 1.7 percent increase in GDP over the long term, 1.5 percent higher wages, and an additional 339,000 full-time equivalent jobs. In 2018, our model predicts that GDP would be 2.45 percent, compared to baseline growth of 2.01 percent."

"The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a pro-growth tax plan, which, when fully implemented, would spur an additional $600 billion in federal revenues from economic growth…"
