An Evening with Michael Reagan
You’re cordially invited to an evening with Michael Reagan. Details below.
The IRS is at it again!
Do you know what happens when someone publicly criticizes liberal big government? Under President Obama, there’s a chance they’ll be targeted by the Internal Revenue Service.
Just last year we discovered this was true when we found out the IRS was secretly targeting conservative organizations for more intensive screening during their application process to receive tax-exempt status.
Now, the Obama administration wants to take it a step further and unilaterally alter America’s tax code in hopes of further silencing political speech.
If implemented, the new IRS regulations will drastically limit the free speech of 501(c)(4) groups (like veterans’ organizations, civic education programs, and many important nonprofits) by:
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to criticize or praise the policies of any federal, state, or local politicians within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election
- Forcing affected groups to remove any references to politicians from their websites during these time periods
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to hold candidate debates or forums during these time periods
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to distribute voting guides and legislative scorecards
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to weigh in on nominees for federal, state, or local appointed government positions
Of course the Administration made sure these new rules won’t affect their favorite beneficiaries — labor unions. Unions just so happen to fall into the nearly identical 501 (c)(5) tax classification, and this next tax code overhaul intentionally leaves them untouched, allowing them to play politics as usual.
In spite of these facts, President Obama still claims there’s “not even a smidgen of corruption” going on at the IRS. But Americans like you and me think otherwise — 64% of voters think the IRS is corrupt!
It’s time we stopped pretending the IRS is innocent, and started demanding the Obama administration stops punishing those who disagree with the President.

Just a few hours left
There are just a few hours left before my midnight fundraising deadline and I need your help.
Earlier this week, President Obama doubled-down on his liberal agenda during the State of the Union. Instead of bringing our Country together to solve our Nations’ problems he took on a dictatorial tone vowing to take widespread action without Congressional approval. Now, more than ever before, it’s critical that we fight back or risk losing our country to liberal, big-government, spend-too-much policies.
It’s absolutely critical that we reach our goal. Are you with me?
We must do better
when that’s not the case whatsoever. It was just one of many major flubs Obama’s handpicked nominee made that day.
At a time when Americans mistrust the government more than ever, you have to ask yourself – what was Obama thinking nominating this guy?
Please take a moment right now to watch the video of Tsunis’ confirmation hearing to see just how bad the decisions coming out of the Oval Office have gotten.
And remind yourself — we can do better. We MUST do better. America DESERVES better.
I’m fighting for that America. One that has higher standards and expects MORE from our country’s leaders. Please consider making a generous donation of $15, $25, $50, or more in support of an America that doesn’t just settle, but demands nothing but the best.
Obama’s at it again
Obama’s at it again — misleading the American people when it’s convenient for him.
This time, we’re learning that his so-called deal with Iran regarding their nuclear future, isn’t all that he led us to believe.
Just yesterday, Iranian officials came out saying, “we did not agree to dismantle anything” and that Obama administration’s version of the agreement “underplays the concessions and overplays Iranian commitments.”
Enough is enough. It’s time for the President to stop spinning the truth, and start telling the truth. ESPECIALLY when it comes to America’s national security.
I’m confident that together we can put the pressure on the President and demand the truth instead of more spin.
The verdict is in
Have you heard? The verdict’s in on Benghazi.
Despite the Obama Administration’s best efforts to sweep the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans under the rug, the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee released a stinging, declassified report yesterday based on extensive intelligence that concluded not only could the Benghazi attack have been prevented, but it also definitively declared that individuals involved in the attack were tied to Al Qaeda groups.
But we’re not at the bottom of things yet. The American people deserve the whole truth. Thus far, the Obama Administration has been nothing more than a roadblock in the Benghazi investigations and the Senate report only further intensifies the need to dig deeper.
It’s time we looked more closely at the State Department’s failure to react to warnings about the attack and what Hillary Clinton’s role was in the decision-making process and aftermath. This is why I support creating a Select Committee to investigate Benghazi.
I won’t stop looking for answers until the American people and the families of those who died in Benghazi know the whole truth about this horrific tragedy — and those responsible are brought to justice.
America deserves answers.
One of the first things I did when considering running for Congress was to read the constitution. It’s the owner’s manual for governing our country. The decisions I make will be based on it. But beyond that, we are a unique and revolutionary nation. Here, we do not bow or swear allegiance to king or crown, but to our constitution. Article VI, Clause 3 has a simple requirement for Members of Congress as well as other elected officials: “to support this Constitution.” Many of our elected officials have forgotten this crucial element of governing and I believe this is the fundamental cause of the significant losses of our freedoms and self-governance.
The purpose of the constitution is to limit government – to chain it down and protect the people and not the other way around. Washington has it backwards.
I will fight to restore constitutional government – a limited federal government, to return power and money to state governments, and remember the constitutional republic left to us by our founders.
We must fight further government encroachment in our lives, on our Bill of Rights, our rights as gun owners and property owners. The decisions I make as a Member of Congress will be based on constitutional concerns, not the opinions of a day or what’s best “politically.”
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS I DID WHEN CONSIDERING RUNNING FOR CONGRESS WAS TO READ THE CONSTITUTION. IT’S THE OWNER’S MANUAL FOR GOVERNING OUR COUNTRY.
In his first Christmas in the White House, President Ronald Reagan reminded us that Christmas is “more than just a day, Christmas is a state of mind. It is found throughout the year whenever faith overcomes doubt, hope conquers despair, and love triumphs over hate. It is present when men of any creed bring love and understanding to the hearts of their fellow man.”
As we celebrate the birth of our Prince of Peace, our risen Lord Christ Jesus, this Christmas day let us remember Reagan’s words and be reminded that spirit of Christmas should fill us all year round.
And as you celebrate Christmas with your family and friends this year, I hope that you will set aside a special moment and offer a prayer for our men and women in the Armed Forces. Their dedication and service to our great nation makes it possible for each of us to enjoy this joyous season in peace.
I wish you and your family a blessed and joyous Christmas holiday.
