Rep. Lamborn Votes Yes on Tax Reform
Congress listened to the American people and simplified our complicated tax code. This is a historic day for our country. Moving forward we can expect bigger paychecks and filing taxes will be as easy as sending a postcard. The middle and lower classes, for the first time in decades, will see more of their hard-earned money staying in their bank accounts. I'm looking forward to seeing the boom Colorado's economy will experience. More jobs will be created, which means more opportunities for our region's small business to expand, hire more workers, and invest. - Rep. Lamborn
Taylor Force Act Passes House Vote
Rep. Lamborn and Rep. Lee Zeldin (NY-01) join Stuart and Robbi Force, the parents of Taylor Force, whom H.R. 1165 was named for after his murder by Palestinian Authority funded terrorism. The Palestinian Authority allocates hundreds of millions of dollars annually to pay terrorists to murder innocent Israelis and Americans. The bill is an important first step in ending U.S. tax dollars from supporting terrorists who kill innocents like Taylor.
Rally for Jack Phillips with Alliance Defending Freedom
Rep. Lamborn rallied for Jack Phillips today while the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission case. Jack doesn’t violate any proper understanding of nondiscrimination laws. He serves all people, but declines some requests for custom cakes that conflict with his faith. That is not a form of unlawful discrimination, but a legitimate exercise of his artistic and religious freedom.

"Unlike many places in the world, our government is not prohibited from referencing or accommodating religion, nor is the government compelled to scrub all religious references from the public square. Rather, the First Amendment ensures both that the government does not show preference to a certain religion and that the government does not take away an individual’s ability to exercise religion. In other words, the church should not rule over the state, and the state cannot rule over the church." Religious Freedom Day is a day not only to enjoy our liberties, but reflect on the guiding principles that affirm them. http://time.com/5103677/church-state-separation-religious-freedom/
Three very important days to remember: 1. New Years Day - America will have a new tax code for a new era. 2. February 2018 - look at your paychecks to see the tax relief that we promised in the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. 3. April 15, 2018 - the last time file your taxes under the current monstrosity of a tax code.
We remember the dream, we honor the legacy, and we teach a new generation. #MLKDay
Planned Parenthood is in decline! Great news from the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List group: On New Year’s Eve, a traditionally non-newsworthy day, Planned Parenthood - the nation’s largest abortion business - published their annual report, proving to us that they were not excited to share their results. In fact, their report shows they are sinking faster than the Titanic. Over the past five years, Planned Parenthood has seen large declines in non-abortion services, massive losses of clientele, and rapid facility closures. Further, as you can see below, even though they purport to be a provider of medical services other than abortion, their annual reports over the past five years prove otherwise: • Total services dropped from approximately 11,033,366 to 9,537,592 – a decline of more than 1.4 million. • Planned Parenthood performed approximately 126 abortions (1,628,550) for every adoption referral (12,879) over that same period. • Approximately 100 (14% of the total) Planned Parenthood facilities have closed their doors, despite record income
