Ex-Obama Treasury secretary:
Tax cuts ´leaving us broke´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Naomi Jagoda

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/3/2018 2:17:55 PM

Former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew expressed concerns about the new GOP tax law´s impact on the debt, arguing that it is "leaving us broke" and could lead to cuts in social safety net programs. "I fear that the next shoe to drop is going to be an attack on the most vulnerable in our society," Lew said in a Bloomberg interview. "How are we going to pay for the deficit caused by the tax cut? You´re going to see proposals to cut health insurance from poor people, to take basic food support away from poor people, to attack Medicare and Social

Comments:
You couldn´t even make this up! The utter and complete hypocrisy of this jerk is absolutely shocking. Obama incurred more debt than all presidents combined and Lew says this?? Lew also defended paying off Iran those billions of dollars. Link below. I´m so tired of lying hacks like Lew.

I know they’ll never learn, but people actually believe this garbage, even though every single prediction about Trump has been wrong.

His premise has to be that the current spending has absolutely no waste, duplication or fraud. Were he truly concerned, he would be working to end government waste, but he isn´t so he is only grandstanding.

"How are we going to pay for the deficit caused by the tax cut?" - Former Treasury Secretary Jack Lew

This by a former Secretary of the Treasury... tax cuts don´t cause deficits - excessive spending does. And, Mr. Lew, who is going to pay for the debt incurred while you were in office? The saddest fact is that Lew could be either a Democrat or Republican. Neither party has any credibility when it comes to "balanced budgets" or "spending cuts." It´s only money - and the presses can spin off whatever needed. Exactly what is a dollar worth?

Baloney! If Congress would quit spending our money on waste, we would have a lot more. Obama ran our debt up to trillions of dollars which we don´t have and can never have. Let´s just start with those millions in cash he gave to Iran and the six billion Hillary lost at the State Dept. on her watch, and the millions they used to pay off the women and men that they sexually assaulted. Don´t get me started!

Hey, I have an idea. How about we get rid of millions of criminals who are taking taxpayer money and using American social services? How about we change the rules for those who live on public money for generations?

The problem is not that there is not enough money. There is never enough money for government agencies and their clients. They are like a cancer that just wants to grow and grow using the resources of the host (us).

How about we have fewer poor people, by cutting taxes and creating jobs? That should be the goal... not more poor people.

With the emphasis on "EX"... they all said the same exact thing when the Reagan tax-cuts were put into effect. I want to hope that Trump will reduce personal tax rates along with corporate rates over his term. Corporate taxes should be close to ZERO if and only if they quit lobbying.

Naturally, Ubama´s Treasury Secretary would object to sensible economic policy. As others have said, it´s excessive spending--not tax cuts--that is breaking the Nation financially. The unfastidious penman Lew is also known for his signature, which in its natural form is a series of connected loops with no recognizable letters.

New American, by Michael Tennant    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/25/2018 2:11:49 PM     Post Reply
In a direct assault on the freedoms of speech and religion, the California Assembly on Thursday overwhelmingly approved a bill that would, in effect, prohibit the dissemination of traditional Christian teaching on homosexuality and transgenderism. The Assembly voted 50-14 to criminalize “a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer” that consists of “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual.” The bill defines “sexual orientation change efforts” as “any practices that seek to change an individual’s sexual orientation.

Census: Immigrants on welfare

Welfare and Medicaid use by new immigrants, even those with college degrees, has surged to new levels, an indication that the jobs they came to America to take aren’t there, according to a new report. The Census Bureau charted the growth in the use of taxpayer-funded programs for financially poor new immigrants and found the biggest rise in the use of welfare, roughly triple over the last 10 years. And, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies, the use of Medicaid by immigrants has gone up nearly as much. Steven Camarota, the center´s director of research and

Orrin Hatch warns Trump: Firing

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, warned President Trump firing special counsel Robert Mueller could lead to impeachment, becoming one of the first congressional Republicans to mention impeachment directly. “Firing Mr. Mueller would be a grave error. It would trigger a crisis, possibly even impeachment,” Hatch said in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece published Tuesday night. “It would threaten many of the administration’s accomplishments and make continued progress virtually impossible.” In his op-ed, Hatch endorsed the proposed legislation aimed at protect Mueller from being fired by Trump, or, for that matter, any president from firing a counsel appointed to investigating potential presidential misconduct.

The Center for American Progress, a progressive think tank, had an internal sexual harassment problem, according to a report by BuzzFeed News Tuesday. Benton Strong, the former associate director of communications for the “War Room,” is accused of sexual harassment by two previous female CAP employees, BuzzFeed News reported. One employee referred to as Mary described receiving “lewd and inappropriate text messages” from Strong, including wanting to perform oral sex on her. He discussed with male staffers whether or not black or white women are better at blow jobs and praised her body, she claimed. Another woman claimed she reported

The network duo expressed concern that Mr. Trump and his rhetorical “tentacles” will cause “anarchy” around the globe. “Fake news, by the president saying this, is not just a simply or cute little statement for some,” Ms. Ryan said in a taped interview published Tuesday. “This has tentacles that is

US Winter Olympians who competed in PyeongChang are heading to the White House this week, but some of the most notable names are skipping the prestigious event. The 2018 Winter Olympics were, at times, used by athletes to vocalize their dissatisfaction with the Trump administration. Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, figure skater Adam Rippon and freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy have all spoke out against the administration. They are among a large swath of about 60 Olympians who will not attend the White House reception this year.

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Sen.

The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American. Sanders´s office has yet to release the details of the plan´s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.

On the domestic and foreign fronts, the Trump administration has prompted economic growth and restored U.S. deterrence. Polls show increased consumer confidence, and in some, Trump himself has gained ground. Yet good news is bad news to the Resistance and its strange continued efforts to stop an elected president in a way it failed to do in the 2016 election. Indeed, the aim of the so-called Resistance to Donald J. Trump is ending Trump’s presidency by any means necessary before the 2020 election. Or, barring that, it seeks to so delegitimize him that he becomes presidentially impotent. It has been only

Chelsea Clinton took inspiration from the Duchess of Cambridge for how to manage the birth of her first child, a new book claims. She and her aides ´studied´ how the British royal family had handled the birth of Prince George in 2013 in order to prepare for her own first baby, who was born a year later. Bill and Hillary Clinton´s only daughter Chelsea, as well as her staff, noted how press was handled and how the Duchess of Cambridge handled herself, and used it as a template for themselves, the book claims.
