Campaign for Liberty Supports Adding USA Workforce to Tax Reform 2.0

Campaign for Liberty Supports Adding USA Workforce to Tax Reform 2.0

By Campaign For Liberty

Today, the House Ways and Means Committee will markup tax reform 2.0. This bill builds on last years tax reform bill with a number of positive tax changes, including expanding permissible uses for 529 savings accounts to allow the money to be used for apprenticeship programs, to cover the costs of home schooling, and to pay off student loans.

The tax bill could do more to improve Americas apprentice and education system by including the USA Workforce Act (H.R. 5153). This act provides tax deductions for donations to scholarships funds for K-12 education and apprenticeship programs. If your representative is on the Ways and Means Committee please call them and tell them to support adding the USA Workforce Act to the tax reform 2.0 bill. Here is a coalition letter in support of adding the USA Workforce Act to tax reform 2.0:

August 21, 2018

The Honorable Kevin Brady


Committee on Ways and Means

1102 Longworth

U.S. House of Representatives

Washington, DC 20515

Dear Mr. Chairman:

Thank you for your leadership in securing approval for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017, including the important step initiated by the House of allowing 529 savings to be tapped for K-12 tuition. With the creation of new jobs and record low unemployment, the nation is facing a growing labor shortage.

We agree with House leadership and the Ways and Means Committee that the time has arrived to address this labor shortage and the associated skills gap. For the first time in recent memory, the number of unemployed is outstripped by the number of jobs that remain open because U.S. employers cannot find Americans with the skills to fill these jobs.

We need to simultaneously address the skills gap affecting working-age adults and — looking towards the future — empower elementary and secondary students to find the best fit for their education to ensure they are prepared adequately for the future workforce.

The USA Workforce Tax Credit legislation (H.R. 5153, introduced by Rep. Lloyd Smucker) addresses these twin goals. We write to request that the U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means include the provisions of the USA Workforce Tax Credit within the Committee Mark-up on Tax 2.0.

This legislation (H.R. 5153) would create a national tax credit to encourage donations to apprenticeship and workforce training programs and donations to K-12 scholarship organizations. Importantly, the bill makes sure religious liberty is protected, respects private-school autonomy, and applies to taxpayers across the entire country concerns that have been underscored in hundreds of meetings we have held with House Members and their staffs.

H.R. 5153 is backed by a coalition of almost 300 organizations, including the Catholic Church and key Evangelical and Orthodox Jewish groups, business groups, African-American and Latino community groups, and more than 30 labor unions. The coalition includes Ralph Reeds Faith and Freedom Coalition and Grover Norquists Americans for Tax Reform.

H.R. 5153 has more than three-dozen sponsors representing diverse districts across the nation and representing the full spectrum of opinion in the GOP Conference, ranging from: the bills sponsor, Rep. Lloyd Smucker (R- Pennsylvania), a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus; to Rep. Peter King (R- New York), a pro-union suburban Republican from Long Island; to Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Indiana); to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-North Carolina) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the chairman and founder respectively of the House Freedom Caucus.

Thank you in advance for consideration of including H.R. 5153 within Tax 2.0.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
