    Bill Summary

    Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act of 2017 This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code, with respect to the low-income housing credit, to rename the credit “the affordable housing credit” and make several modifications to the credit. The bill increases state allocations for the credit and modifies the cost-of-living adjustments. It also revises tenant eligibility requirements, with respect to: the average income test, income eligibility for rural projects, increased tenant income, student occupancy rules, and tenant voucher payments that are taken into account as rent. The bill revises various requirements to: establish a 4% minimum credit rate for certain projects, permit relocation costs to be taken into account as rehabilitation expenditures, repeal the qualified census tract population cap, require housing credit agencies to make certain determinations regarding community revitalization plans, prohibit local approval and contribution requirements, increase the credit for certain projects designated to serve extremely low-income households, increase the credit for certain bond-financed projects designated by state agencies, increase the population cap for difficult development areas, and eliminate the basis reduction for affordable housing properties that are allowed the credit and receive certain energy-related tax credits and deductions. The bill also modifies requirements regarding the reconstruction or replacement period after a casualty loss, rights related to building purchases, the prohibition on claiming acquisition credits for properties placed in service in the previous 10 years, foreclosures, and projects that assist Native Americans.

    Under The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

    the government allocates nonrefundable tax credits to state-run housing agencies

    who distribute them to housing developers

    that agree to make a portion of their units available to low-income renters.

    The housing developers who receive the tax credits

    then sell them to independent investors to help finance the actual development of the housing units.

    The investors are ultimately the ones who claim the tax credit

    rather than the low-income residents of the rental units or the developers.

    Subject: A Bipartisan Fix to Our Affordable Housing Crisis

     

    Fellow Washingtonians,

    An affordable housing crisis is happening across our country.

    If we don’t take action now, as many as 15 million Americans will be spending half their monthly income on rent by 2025.

    That’s why I requested today’s hearing, to address the worsening affordable housing shortage gripping our nation, and discuss my Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, that would expand the successful Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) – our most effective tool for addressing America’s affordable housing crisis.

    WATCH: Senate Finance Committee Hearing on the Affordable Housing Crisis

    Under my proposal, which is cosponsored by Finance Committee Chairman Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Ranking Member Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), and 16 others, the expanded LIHTC would help create or preserve approximately 1,300,000 affordable homes over a 10-year period – an increase of 400,000 more units than is possible under the current program.

    Senators from both parties spoke in support of the LIHTC program, presenting an opportunity for bipartisan action as tax reform negotiations begin.

    “One reason I support the LIHTC is that it… allows decisions on housing to be made within the communities where the housing is needed while involving the private sector.” – Senator Hatch (R-UT)

    “The LIHTC is a critical tool.” – Senator Brown (D-OH)

    “I’m a big supporter of Ms. Cantwell’s program… It has passed the test of time” – Senator Isakson (R-GA)

    “The LIHTC is the major tool available and strengthening that tool is the most important thing I believe we can do.” – Senator Cardin (D-MD)

    If we don’t take action now, to bolster the program, it’s likely that almost $1 billion in investments will be lost in this year alone.

    According to the National Association of Home Builders, annual LIHTC development supports approximately 95,700 jobs and $9.1 billion in wages and business income.

    “America’s housing affordability crisis affects millions of families in urban, suburban, and rural areas nationwide, and the federal government must do everything in its power to help communities address it—beginning with expanding the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit. We commend Senator Cantwell and her colleagues for pursuing a bipartisan solution to this pressing issue and urge every member of Congress to reflect on today’s hearing and support the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act of 2017.” – Anthony J. Alfieri, president, Affordable Housing Tax Credit Coalition.

    My bill would also allow the 58,000 homeless students in the U.S. to finally access the affordable housing units created with LIHTC, expanding development opportunities in rural and Native communities and providing flexibility and financial feasibility to developments so they can more deeply target their units to the neediest individuals, including the homeless.

    Over the past year, I’ve met with local communities and visited affordable housing developments in Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Vancouver, Walla Walla, Longview, Kent, Bremerton, Bellingham, Portland, New York City and Salt Lake City and they’ve all told me the same thing: we need more affordable housing.

    I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN ME AS I CONTINUE FIGHTING TO EXPAND THE LIHTC AND BUILD MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING, FOR MORE AMERICANS.

    As always, you can contact me with your questions and concerns through my website. Follow me on Twitter and Facebook to stay updated on the issues. Let’s stay in touch!

    Sincerely,

    Maria

  • Fixing Too Big to Fail 2008-2017

    OBAMACARE CAN BE CERTAINLY BE COMPARED TO ANOTHER DEMOCRATS’ TOO BIG TO FAIL ACT

    Comment on “TOO BIG TO FAIL” seven years ago

    Is it possible for taking care of financial crisis by allowing each state to work on their own because each state has different needs?

    and they could spot the problem easier and can easily find the solution.

    ? Solving the Global financial Crisis is so complex. I have no idea what the solutions is going to be.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MORE THEN ONE WAY TO FIX OBAMACARE.

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday declared that Republicans should “let Obamacare fail,” saying the collapse would force Democrats to work with the GOP

    Whether they repeal Obamacare immediately or not, Trump has said Democrats would be forced to come to the table to negotiate with Republicans on a path forward for the nation’s healthcare system.

    JUL 29, 2015 –  ‘Too Big to Fail’ Is Still a Problem. Here’s How D.C. Wants to End It.

    REMEMBER THIS WAS POSTED JULY 29, 2015

    The scariest thing about addressing “too-big-to-fail” banks is that there’s no dress rehearsal. For all the plans, simulations, and preparations, the only way to know that the problem of banks being excessively interconnected in the wider economy has been solved is when one of these banks fails — but doesn’t take the rest of the economy with it.

    Until that happens, elected officials and regulators are left to look back at the 2008 debacle and argue about whether they’ve put the pieces in place to keep it from happening again.

    Leaders in the world of financial regulation talk about how to pick up where Dodd-Frank left off — or how to scrap the law and start over entirely.

    But in the midst of that argument, this much is clear: These banks are as big, or bigger, than they ever have been.

    “THEY HAVE A POTENTIAL TO HAVE A CATASTROPHIC EFFECT,” says Thomas Hoenig, vice chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. “THEY ARE LARGER THAN THEY WERE AT THE LAST CRISIS.”

    That does not mean that there haven’t been attempts to mitigate the problem of banks being so large that they require a bailout. IN THE FIVE YEARS SINCE CONGRESS PASSED the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law,(OBAMA’S) regulators have implemented a suite of measures aimed at ensuring that the nation’s largest banks are sound and that, should they wobble, the economy won’t go with them.

    IN 2010 THE DEMOCRATS TWO “TOO BIG TO FAIL LAWS” BECAME LAW OBAMACARE AND DODD-FRANK

    AND WHAT WOULD I SAY, IF ANYONE ASK ME WHY, IN THE SEVEN YEARS SINCE THE DEMOCRATS IN CONGRESS PASSED THEM,  THEY HAVEN’T BEEN REGULATED?

  • Putting Down the Distracted Drivers Law?

    FACT: WA STATE DISTRACTED DRIVERS, HOLDING ELECTRONIC DEVICES, KILL AND INJURE PEOPLE, THE PUNISHMENT AND PENALTIES, BY LAW, SHOULD  BE THE SAME AS DUI LAWS.

    DUI or DWI Punishments and Penalties | Nolo.com

    www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/dui-or-dwi-punishments-penalties-30321.html

    Jail Time. In all states, first-offense DUI or DWI is classified as a misdemeanor, and punishable by up to six months in jail. That jail time may be increased under certain circumstances. … MANY STATES ALSO REQUIRE MINIMUM JAIL SENTENCES OF AT LEAST SEVERAL DAYS ON A FIRST OFFENSE.

    MANY STATES also require minimum jail sentences of at least several days on a first offense. Subsequent offenses often result in jail sentences of several months to a year.

    For a DUI or DWI that’s been classified as a felony — either because the driver killed or injured someone or because it’s the driver’s third or fourth DUI — jail sentences of several years are not uncommon. Again, this depends on state law, the facts of the case, and the discretion of the judge at trial.

    FINES IN ADDITION TO JAIL SENTENCES, courts can and do impose high fines for DUI or DWI. These range from $500 to as much as $2,000.

    DRIVER’S LICENSE PROBLEMS A DUI or DWI offender stands a good chance of having his or her license suspended for a substantial period of time (either by court order or mandate of the state motor vehicles department). FOR EXAMPLE, MANY STATES suspend a first offender’s license for 90 days; a second offender’s license for one year; and a third offender’s license for three years.

    IN MANY STATES IF YOU COMMIT THE SAME CRIME , KILLING AND INJURING PEOPLE, YOU DO THE SAME  TIME

    The Michael Bloomberg Nanny State In New York: A Cautionary Tale

    www.forbes.com/…/the-michael-bloomberg-nanny-state-in-new-york-a-cautionary-tal…

    May 10, 2013 – Since New York City Mayor Bloomberg announced the 20-ounce soda ban last fall, the controversy has garnered national attention. But, this is just the latest example of his attempt to expand the “nanny state” that has become New York City.

    ———————————————————————–

    Meet Bloomberg | Nanny State

    https://www.meetbloomberg.com/nanny-state/

    Bloomberg’s 12 years as mayor of New York City have been referred to as a “stereotypically laughable example of a liberal nanny state at its worst.

    ———————————————————–

    What Has Bloomberg Tried To Regulate Or Ban In New York City?

    A BETTER QUESTION MIGHT BE WHAT HASN’T HE TRIED TO REGULATE OR BAN.

    HERE’S THE LIST OF SOME OF THE ITEMS ON HIS NANNY AGENDA: ALCOHOL, CALORIE COUNTS, carbon, CELL PHONES, CIGARETTES, contraceptives, composting, fingerprinting, gasoline, NOISE, POLITICS, PRIVACY, SECOND AMENDMENT, SODA, SODIUM, Styrofoam, taxis, tanning, traffic congestion and trans fats.

     BLOOMBERG’S 12 YEARS AS MAYOR OF NEW YORK CITY HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO AS A

    “STEREOTYPICALLY LAUGHABLE EXAMPLE OF A LIBERAL NANNY STATE AT ITS WORST. HE “UNLEASHED A TSUNAMI OF PUBLIC HEALTH INITIATIVES” IN AN ATTEMPT TO REGULATE OR BAN DOZENS OF ITEMS AND BEHAVIORS FROM BIG GULPS TO CIGARETTES, from composting to trans fats.

    HE DID THIS BECAUSE HE THINKS THERE ARE TIMES WHEN GOVERNMENT  “SHOULD INFRINGE ON YOUR FREEDOM.” 

    BLOOMBERG DOESN’T THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT, OR WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU.

    HE HAS ACTUALLY SAID,“YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT.

    BECAUSE WHAT YOU CARE ABOUT CHANGES WITH WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE WORLD,

     AND YOU NEED SOMEBODY TO MAKE THOSE DECISIONS FOR YOU.”

    And Bloomberg has spent his billions trying to be that somebody.

    Bloomberg’s ban on cell phones in schools simply showed how out-of-touch he was with today’s realities.

    www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/devil.asp

    Soapbox: Radio commentator Paul Harvey penned an essay entitled ‘If I Were the Devil.’ … Claim: Transcript reproduces radio commentator Paul Harvey’s essay entitled “If I Were the Devil.”. … If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    SNOPES SAYS The oldest genuine Paul Harvey version of this piece we’ve found so far appeared in his newspaper column in 1964:

    If I Were the Devil

    If I were the Prince of Darkness I would want to engulf the whole earth in darkness.

    I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree.

    So I should set about however necessary, to take over the United States.

    I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whispers to you as I whispered to Eve, “Do as you please.”

    To the young I would whisper “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that “man created God,” instead of the other way around. I would confide that “what is bad is good and what is good is square.”

    In the ears of the young married I would whisper that work is debasing, that cocktail parties are good for you. I would caution them not to be “extreme” in religion, in patriotism, in moral conduct.

    And the old I would teach to pray — to say after me — “Our father which are in Washington.”

    Then I’d get organized.

    I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull, uninteresting.

    I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies, and vice-versa.

    I’d infiltrate unions and urge more loafing, less work. Idle hands usually work for me.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could, I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction, I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the Devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, but neglect to discipline emotions; let those run wild.

    I’d designate an atheist to front for me before the highest courts and I’d get preachers to say, “She’s right.”

    With flattery and promises of power I would get the courts to vote against God and in favor of pornography.

    Thus I would evict God from the courthouse, then from the schoolhouse, then from the Houses of Congress.

    Then in his own churches I’d substitute psychology for religion and deify science.

    If I were Satan I’d make the symbol of Easter an egg

    And the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

    If I were the Devil I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. Then my police state would force everybody back to work.

    Then I would separate families, putting children in uniform, women in coal mines and objectors in slave-labor camps.

    If I were Satan I’d just keep doing what I’m doing and the whole world go to hell as sure as the Devil.

    So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.

    I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

    With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.”

    To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince the children that man created God instead of the other way around. I’d confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is square.

    And the old, I would teach to pray after me, “Our Father, which are in Washington …”

    Then, I’d get organized, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting.

    I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

    If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

    And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

    If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run will. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

    With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

    In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

    If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

    What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

    I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

    And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

    In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.

    How fitting Trump’s Contract to “We the People”  in historic Gettysburg, PA

    https://www.donaldjtrump.com/…/donald-j.-trump-delivers-groundbreaking-contract-…

    Oct 22, 2016 – “What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter – and …

    Presents 100-Day Plan To Make America Great Again – For Everyone

    Gettysburg, PA: Today, in historic Gettysburg, PA, Donald J. Trump presented a game-changing plan for his first 100 days in office. This revolutionary “Contract with the American Voter” will ensure that America’s economy is revitalized and citizens are protected.

    “I’m not a politician, and have never wanted to be one. But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I knew I couldn’t stand by and watch any longer. Our country has been so good to me, I love our country, I felt I had to act,” said Mr. Trump in his address.

    “Change has to come from outside this broken system. The fact that the Washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our campaign is only more proof that our campaign represents the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime,” he continued.

    “I am asking the American people to rise above the noise and the clutter of our broken politics, and to embrace that great faith and optimism that has always been the central ingredient in the American character. I am asking you to dream big.

    “What follows is my 100-day action plan to Make America Great Again. It is a contract between Donald J. Trump and the American voter – and begins with restoring honesty, accountability and change to Washington,” he concluded.

    DONALD J. TRUMP CONTRACT WITH THE AMERICAN VOTER

    “Therefore, on the first day of my term of office, my administration will immediately pursue the following six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC:

    • FIRST, propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress;
    • SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health);
    • THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated;
    • FOURTH, a 5 year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
    • FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government;
    • SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

    On the same day, I will begin taking the following seven actions to protect American workers:

    • FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
    • SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
    • THIRD, I will direct my Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator
    • FOURTH, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately
    • FIFTH, I will lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
    • SIXTH, lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward
    • SEVENTH, cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure

    Additionally, on the first day, I will take the following five actions to restore security and the constitutional rule of law:

    • FIRST, cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama
    • SECOND, begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States
    • THIRD, cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities
    • FOURTH, begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back
    • FIFTH, suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.

    Next, I will work with Congress to introduce the following broader legislative measures and fight for their passage within the first 100 days of my Administration:

    1. Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act. An economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.

    2. End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.

    3. American Energy & Infrastructure Act. Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.

    4. School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.

    5. Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act. Fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.

    6. Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act. Allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivizes employers to provide on-site childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.

    7. End Illegal Immigration Act Fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for overstaying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.

    8. Restoring Community Safety Act. Reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.

    9. Restoring National Security Act. Rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values

    10. Clean up Corruption in Washington Act. Enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.

    On November 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our economy, security to our communities, and honesty to our government.

    This is my pledge to you.

    And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people.”

     WikiLeaks NOVEMBER 23, 2010 THE PRIVATE FACE OF HILLARY AND HER SERVER

    Report: Clinton mulled killing Wikileaks’ Julian Assange with drone strike

    Tuesday NOVEMBER 23, 2010 shortly after 8 a.m. Clinton met with staff on Mahogany Row at the State Department to attempt to formulate a strategy to avert Assange’s plans to release an enormous batch of 250,000 secret cables, dating from 1966 to 2010.

    Clinton’s State Department was getting pressure from President Obama and his White House inner circle, as well as heads of state internationally, to try and cutoff Assange’s delivery of the cables and if that effort failed, then to forge a strategy to minimize the administration’s public embarrassment over the contents of the cables.

    Hence, Clinton’s early morning November meeting of State’s top brass who floated various proposals to stop, slow or spin the Wikileaks contamination.

    That is when a frustrated Clinton, sources said, at some point blurted out a controversial query.

    “CAN’T WE JUST DRONE THIS GUY?” CLINTON OPENLY INQUIRED, offering a simple remedy to silence Assange and smother Wikileaks via a planned military drone strike, according to State Department sources.

    The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said.

    Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases,

    —————————————————–

    …[E]mails previously released from Clinton’s private server reveal Anne Marie Slaughter, a former director of policy planning at the State Department, sent an email on the same day in 2010 on the subject of possible “nonlegal strategies” for dealing with WikiLeaks. That email also notes that a meeting was held that day to discuss WikiLeaks.

    1787  The United States of America

    We hold these truths to be self evident.

    At the time of its founding, the United States was a weak and fledgling nation, unique in claiming its republican institutions, extremely vulnerable to the great powers that dominated the world. Its objectives were to strengthen its constitutional government, build an adequate military capacity to defend itself, and, if possible, remove European influence from the North American continent.

    If America failed in this, Alexander Hamilton warned in Federalist 11, it would become “the instrument of European greatness.

    ” But if it succeeded, it would be “superior to the control of all transatlantic force or influence and be able to dictate the terms of the connection between the old and the new world.”

    Alexander Hamilton essay’s MAIN PURPOSE IS TO FORCE CITIZENS TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEIR CURRENT GOVERNMENT IS NOT WORTH KEEPING compared with the ideas of the Constitution.

    However, Hamilton knows the difficulty of convincing someone to replace something they are comfortable with. He reminds the people of how they “depend for their political constitutions on accident and force” and PRESENTS THEM WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHOOSE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A “GOOD GOVERNMENT”. Hamilton even states that if the Constitution was not ratified, the existing Union would be completely destroyed.

    Alexander Hamilton writes THAT ENERGY IN THE EXECUTIVE IS “THE LEADING CHARACTER IN THE DEFINITION OF GOOD GOVERNMENT.”

    A great example of the Founders’ prudence is their early foreign policy. It is often said that the American Founders were isolationists and that the principle of their FOREIGN POLICY was to withdraw from the world in favor of focusing solely on the home front.

    A great example of the Trump’s prudence is his foreign policy.

    Build an adequate military capacity to defend itself

    And, remove the globalization of the European Union, United Nations rule etal. from the United States of America.

    TRUMP WILL BUILD A WALL

    And  focus  solely on America’s  home front.

    Transcript

    Mr. President and Mr. Speaker and Members of the United States Congress, distinguished guests, fellow Americans, thank you very much for that warm welcome. We gather tonight, witness to events in the Persian Gulf as significant as they are tragic. In the early morning hours of August 2d, following negotiations and promises by Iraq’s dictator Saddam Hussein not to use force, a powerful Iraqi army invaded its trusting and much weaker neighbor, Kuwait. Within 3 days, 120,000 Iraqi troops with 850 tanks had poured into Kuwait and moved south to threaten Saudi Arabia. IT WAS THEN THAT I DECIDED TO ACT TO CHECK THAT AGGRESSION.
    At this moment, our brave servicemen and women stand watch in that distant desert and on distant seas, side by side with the forces of more than 20 other nations. They are some of the finest men and women of the United States of America. And they’re doing one terrific job. These valiant Americans were ready at a moment’s notice to leave their spouses and their children, to serve on the front line halfway around the world. They remind us who keeps America strong: they do. In the trying circumstances of the Gulf, the morale of our service men and women is excellent. In the face of danger, they’re brave, they’re well-trained, and dedicated.
    A soldier, Private First Class Wade Merritt of Knoxville, Tennessee, now stationed in Saudi Arabia, wrote his parents of his worries, his love of family, and his hope for peace. But Wade also wrote, “I am proud of my country and its firm stance against inhumane aggression. I am proud of my army and its men. I am proud to serve my country.” Well, let me just say, Wade, America is proud of you and is grateful to every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman serving the cause of peace in the Persian Gulf. I also want to thank the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Powell; the Chiefs here tonight; our commander in the Persian Gulf, General Schwartzkopf; and the men and women of the Department of Defense. What a magnificent job you all are doing. And thank you very, very much from a grateful people. I wish I could say that their work is done. But we all know it’s not.
    So, if there ever was a time to put country before self and patriotism before party, the time is now. And let me thank all Americans, especially those here in this Chamber tonight, for your support for our armed forces and for their mission. That support will be even more important in the days to come. So, tonight I want to talk to you about what’s at stake—what we must do together to defend civilized values around the world and maintain our economic strength at home.
    Our objectives in the Persian Gulf are clear, our goals defined and familiar: Iraq must withdraw from Kuwait completely, immediately, and without condition. Kuwait’s legitimate government must be restored. The security and stability of the Persian Gulf must be assured. And American citizens abroad must be protected. These goals are not ours alone. They’ve been endorsed by the United Nations Security Council five times in as many weeks. Most countries share our concern for principle. And many have a stake in the stability of the Persian Gulf. This is not, as Saddam Hussein would have it, the United States against Iraq. It is Iraq against the world.
    As you know, I’ve just returned from a very productive meeting with Soviet President Gorbachev. And I am pleased that we are working together to build a new relationship. In Helsinki, our joint statement affirmed to the world our shared resolve to counter Iraq’s threat to peace. Let me quote: “We are united in the belief that Iraq’s aggression must not be tolerated. No peaceful international order is possible if larger states can devour their smaller neighbors.” Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East-West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression. A new partnership of nations has begun.
    We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge: a new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we’ve known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak. This is the vision that I shared with President Gorbachev in Helsinki. He and other leaders from Europe, the Gulf, and around the world understand that how we manage this crisis today could shape the future for generations to come.
    The test we face is great, and so are the stakes. This is the first assault on the new world that we seek, the first test of our mettle. Had we not responded to this first provocation with clarity of purpose, if we do not continue to demonstrate our determination, it would be a signal to actual and potential despots around the world. America and the world must defend common vital interests—and we will. America and the world must support the rule of law—and we will. America and the world must stand up to aggression—and we will. And one thing more: In the pursuit of these goals America will not be intimidated.
    Vital issues of principle are at stake. Saddam Hussein is literally trying to wipe a country off the face of the Earth. We do not exaggerate. Nor do we exaggerate when we say Saddam Hussein will fail. Vital economic interests are at risk as well. Iraq itself controls some 10 percent of the world’s proven oil reserves. Iraq plus Kuwait controls twice that. An Iraq permitted to swallow Kuwait would have the economic and military power, as well as the arrogance, to intimidate and coerce its neighbors—neighbors who control the lion’s share of the world’s remaining oil reserves. We cannot permit a resource so vital to be dominated by one so ruthless. And we won’t.
    Recent events have surely proven that there is no substitute for American leadership. In the face of tyranny, let no one doubt American credibility and reliability. Let no one doubt our staying power. We will stand by our friends. One way or another, the leader of Iraq must learn this fundamental truth. From the outset, acting hand in hand with others, we’ve sought to fashion the broadest possible international response to Iraq’s aggression. The level of world cooperation and condemnation of Iraq is unprecedented. Armed forces from countries spanning four continents are there at the request of King Fahd of Saudi Arabia to deter and, if need be, to defend against attack. Moslems and non-Moslems, Arabs and non-Arabs, soldiers from many nations stand shoulder to shoulder, resolute against Saddam Hussein’s ambitions.
    We can now point to five United Nations Security Council resolutions that condemn Iraq’s aggression. They call for Iraq’s immediate and unconditional withdrawal, the restoration of Kuwait’s legitimate government, and categorically reject Iraq’s cynical and self-serving attempt to annex Kuwait. Finally, the United Nations has demanded the release of all foreign nationals held hostage against their will and in contravention of international law. It is a mockery of human decency to call these people “guests.” They are hostages, and the whole world knows it.
    Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a dependable ally, said it all: “We do not bargain over hostages. We will not stoop to the level of using human beings as bargaining chips ever.” Of course, of course, our hearts go out to the hostages and to their families. But our policy cannot change, and it will not change. America and the world will not be blackmailed by this ruthless policy.
    We’re now in sight of a United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders. We owe much to the outstanding leadership of Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar. The United Nations is backing up its words with action. The Security Council has imposed mandatory economic sanctions on Iraq, designed to force Iraq to relinquish the spoils of its illegal conquest. The Security Council has also taken the decisive step of authorizing the use of all means necessary to ensure compliance with these sanctions. Together with our friends and allies, ships of the United States Navy are today patrolling Mideast waters. They’ve already intercepted more than 700 ships to enforce the sanctions. Three regional leaders I spoke with just yesterday told me that these sanctions are working. Iraq is feeling the heat. We continue to hope that Iraq’s leaders will recalculate just what their aggression has cost them. They are cut off from world trade, unable to sell their oil. And only a tiny fraction of goods gets through.
    The communique with President Gorbachev made mention of what happens when the embargo is so effective that children of Iraq literally need milk or the sick truly need medicine. Then, under strict international supervision that guarantees the proper destination, then food will be permitted.
    At home, the material cost of our leadership can be steep. That’s why Secretary of State Baker and Treasury Secretary Brady have met with many world leaders to underscore that the burden of this collective effort must be shared. We are prepared to do our share and more to help carry that load; we insist that others do their share as well.
    The response of most of our friends and allies has been good. To help defray costs, the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the UAE—the United Arab Emirates—have pledged to provide our deployed troops with all the food and fuel they need. Generous assistance will also be provided to stalwart front-line nations, such as Turkey and Egypt. I am also heartened to report that this international response extends to the neediest victims of this conflict—those refugees. For our part, we’ve contributed $28 million for relief efforts. This is but a portion of what is needed. I commend, in particular, Saudi Arabia, Japan, and several European nations who have joined us in this purely humanitarian effort.
    There’s an energy-related cost to be borne as well. Oil-producing nations are already replacing lost Iraqi and Kuwaiti output. More than half of what was lost has been made up. And we’re getting superb cooperation. If producers, including the United States, continue steps to expand oil and gas production, we can stabilize prices and guarantee against hardship. Additionally, we and several of our allies always have the option to extract oil from our strategic petroleum reserves if conditions warrant. As I’ve pointed out before, conservation efforts are essential to keep our energy needs as low as possible. And we must then take advantage of our energy sources across the board: coal, natural gas, hydro, and nuclear. Our failure to do these things has made us more dependent on foreign oil than ever before. Finally, let no one even contemplate profiteering from this crisis. We will not have it.
    I cannot predict just how long it will take to convince Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait. Sanctions will take time to have their full intended effect. We will continue to review all options with our allies, but let it be clear: we will not let this aggression stand.
    Our interest, our involvement in the Gulf is not transitory. It predated Saddam Hussein’s aggression and will survive it. Long after all our troops come home—and we all hope it’s soon, very soon—there will be a lasting role for the United States in assisting the nations of the Persian Gulf. Our role then: to deter future aggression. Our role is to help our friends in their own self-defense. And something else: to curb the proliferation of chemical, biological, ballistic missile and, above all, nuclear technologies.
    Let me also make clear that the United States has no quarrel with the Iraqi people. Our quarrel is with Iraq’s dictator and with his aggression. Iraq will not be permitted to annex Kuwait. That’s not a threat, that’s not a boast, that’s just the way it’s going to be.
    Our ability to function effectively as a great power abroad depends on how we conduct ourselves at home. Our economy, our Armed Forces, our energy dependence, and our cohesion all determine whether we can help our friends and stand up to our foes. For America to lead, America must remain strong and vital. Our world leadership and domestic strength are mutual and reinforcing; a woven piece, strongly bound as Old Glory. To revitalize our leadership, our leadership capacity, we must address our budget deficit—not after election day, or next year, but now.
    Higher oil prices slow our growth, and higher defense costs would only make our fiscal deficit problem worse. That deficit was already greater than it should have been—a projected $232 billion for the coming year. It must—it will—be reduced.
    To my friends in Congress, together we must act this very month—before the next fiscal year begins on October 1st—to get America’s economic house in order. The Gulf situation helps us realize we are more economically vulnerable than we ever should be. Americans must never again enter any crisis, economic or military, with an excessive dependence on foreign oil and an excessive burden of Federal debt.
    Most Americans are sick and tired of endless battles in the Congress and between the branches over budget matters. It is high time we pulled together and get the job done right. It’s up to us to straighten this out. This job has four basic parts. First, the Congress should, this month, within a budget agreement, enact growth-oriented tax measures—to help avoid recession in the short term and to increase savings, investment, productivity, and competitiveness for the longer term. These measures include extending incentives for research and experimentation; expanding the use of IRA’s for new homeowners; establishing tax-deferred family savings accounts; creating incentives for the creation of enterprise zones and initiatives to encourage more domestic drilling; and, yes, reducing the tax rate on capital gains.
    And second, the Congress should, this month, enact a prudent multiyear defense program, one that reflects not only the improvement in East-West relations but our broader responsibilities to deal with the continuing risks of outlaw action and regional conflict. Even with our obligations in the Gulf, a sound defense budget can have some reduction in real terms; and we’re prepared to accept that. But to go beyond such levels, where cutting defense would threaten our vital margin of safety, is something I will never accept. The world is still dangerous. And surely, that is now clear. Stability’s not secure. American interests are far reaching. Interdependence has increased. The consequences of regional instability can be global. This is no time to risk America’s capacity to protect her vital interests.
    And third, the Congress should, this month, enact measures to increase domestic energy production and energy conservation in order to reduce dependence on foreign oil. These measures should include my proposals to increase incentives for domestic oil and gas exploration, fuel-switching, and to accelerate the development of the Alaskan energy resources without damage to wildlife. As you know, when the oil embargo was imposed in the early 1970’s, the United States imported almost 6 million barrels of oil a day. This year, before the Iraqi invasion, U.S. imports had risen to nearly 8 million barrels per day. And we’d moved in the wrong direction. And now we must act to correct that trend.
    And fourth, the Congress should, this month, enact a 5-year program to reduce the projected debt and deficits by $500 billion—that’s by half a trillion dollars. And if, with the Congress, we can develop a satisfactory program by the end of the month, we can avoid the ax of sequester—deep across-the-board cuts that would threaten our military capacity and risk substantial domestic disruption. I want to be able to tell the American people that we have truly solved the deficit problem. And for me to do that, a budget agreement must meet these tests: It must include the measures I’ve recommended to increase economic growth and reduce dependence on foreign oil. It must be fair. All should contribute, but the burden should not be excessive for any one group of programs or people. It must address the growth of government’s hidden liabilities. It must reform the budget process and, further, it must be real.
    I urge Congress to provide a comprehensive 5-year deficit reduction program to me as a complete legislative package, with measures to assure that it can be fully enforced. America is tired of phony deficit reduction or promise-now, save-later plans. It is time for a program that is credible and real. And finally, to the extent that the deficit reduction program includes new revenue measures, it must avoid any measure that would threaten economic growth or turn us back toward the days of punishing income tax rates. That is one path we should not head down again.
    I have been pleased with recent progress, although it has not always seemed so smooth. But now it’s time to produce. I hope we can work out a responsible plan. But with or without agreement from the budget summit, I ask both Houses of the Congress to allow a straight up-or-down vote on a complete $500-billion deficit reduction package not later than September 28. If the Congress cannot get me a budget, then Americans will have to face a tough, mandated sequester. I’m hopeful, in fact, I’m confident that the Congress will do what it should. And I can assure you that we in the executive branch will do our part.
    In the final analysis, our ability to meet our responsibilities abroad depends upon political will and consensus at home. This is never easy in democracies, for we govern only with the consent of the governed. And although free people in a free society are bound to have their differences, Americans traditionally come together in times of adversity and challenge.
    Once again, Americans have stepped forward to share a tearful goodbye with their families before leaving for a strange and distant shore. At this very moment, they serve together with Arabs, Europeans, Asians, and Africans in defense of principle and the dream of a new world order. That’s why they sweat and toil in the sand and the heat and the sun. If they can come together under such adversity, if old adversaries like the Soviet Union and the United States can work in common cause, then surely we who are so fortunate to be in this great Chamber—Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives—can come together to fulfill our responsibilities here.
    Thank you. Good night. And God bless the United States of America.
