GOP to Repeal Johnson Amendment’s Muzzle on Pastors Through Tax Reform


House Republicans have finally unveiled their new tax reform bill. Despite some delays, Republican leadership insists they are still on schedule to have the bill on President Trump’s desk by the end of the year.

McMorris Rodgers told CBN News they delayed the release in order to get a bill that everyone in their conference can rally behind…. read more
