When tears wouldn't stop Nov. 22, 1963

I remembered it like yesterday. On Nov. 22, 1963, I was sitting in my ninth grade physical science class. Mrs. Pharr was lecturing about some boring topic. Instead of taking the required notes from her lecture, I was writing a love note in response to the one who had just been passed to me.

A fairer, simpler tax code

Recently, the House Republicans passed the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. One of my top priorities this Congress was to help pass comprehensive tax reform, and this bill does just that by overhauling our complex tax code for the first time in 31 years. It is an encouraging moment as Congress takes one step closer in providing a better future for every American. Our objectives are straightforward: we aim to deliver more jobs and bigger paychecks for American workers, through a fairer and simpler tax code.

Social Security is a blessing

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of the great presidents in my opinion. He surely was looking out for the welfare of citizens when he backed the Social Security Act of 1935. All of us who receive benefits or soon will receive them should be very grateful to him and God for this provision. My first payment comes the end of October as I will be 62 on Aug. 21.
