Holding Donald Trump Accountable

Just as I am holding East Orange mayor Lester Taylor III accountable for breaking his campaign promises and for proving that he is only interested in getting re-elected rather than in doing an excellent job as mayor, I plan to hold Donald Trump Accountable for doing the things he said he was going to do in order to become our President.

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.

off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to
the U.S. tax-free.

and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure
investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
ACTIONS TAKEN: 02/03/17 Order on Core Principles for Regulating the

4. School Choice And Education Opportunity Act. Redirects education dollars to
give 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.
ACTION: 02/07/17 Betsy DeVos Confirmed as Secretary of Education

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.
ACTIONS TAKEN: 01/20/17

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.

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.

a government of, by and for the people.
