“It would be hard to fault the average American for thinking all that’s going on in Washington these days is high-drama hearings and partisan sniping.

Signed by President Trump

  • The First Overhaul of Our Tax Code In a Generation
    We have delivered the first overhaul of our tax code since 1986. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will mean more jobs, fairer taxes, and bigger paychecks for middle-class families. With this new law, the typical family with two kids making the median income ($73,000) will get a $2,059 tax cut next year.
  • Repeal of Obamacare's Individual Mandate
    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act repeals the individual mandate at the heart of Obamacare, giving back to families the freedom and flexibility to buy the health care plan that's right for them.
  • Boosting America's Energy Independence
    The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act opens up a small non-wilderness portion of the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) for responsible exploration. It is the biggest step we have taken in decades to improve our energy independence. It will also help create more good-paying jobs for Alaskans.
  • Landmark Veterans Reforms
    We have delivered the biggest reforms to the Department of Veterans Affairs since the national scandals that broke out in 2013, with measures to boost accountability, and improve care for our veterans and their families. And we have delivered a landmark expansion of the GI Bill, meaning no more time limits on when veterans can use their education benefits.
  • Expanding School Choice
    We have expanded support for charter school organizations and renewed the groundbreaking DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, to put a better education in the reach of more children.

Passed by the House

  • Repealing and Replacing Obamacare
    We have passed the American Health Care Act to repeal and replace Obamacare with a system that covers pre-existing conditions while bringing down costs and expanding choices for families. 
  • Replacing Dodd-Frank With Main Street Relief
    We have passed the Financial CHOICE Act to replace Dodd-Frank and revitalize Main Street by giving relief to the community banks that small businesses rely on every day.
  • Reforming Flood Insurance
    We have passed the 21st Century Flood Reform Act to improve the nation's flood insurance program to help homeowners and give more peace of mind to families.
