Treasury Secretary: ‘About 100 People’
Working on Tax Reform at Treasury

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/19/2017 2:30:55 PM

“There are about 100 people working at the Treasury on the issue of tax reform,” Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told the Senate Banking Committee on Thursday. “It is our goal to bring relief to middle-income Americans and make American business competitive again. We will do this all while simplifying the tax system.” Mnuchin noted it has been more than 30 years since the nation has overhauled its tax code, and he said he believes that economic growth of three percent or more is achievable – “if we make historic reforms to both taxes and regulation.” (Video) Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) asked Mnuchin

Putting Congress in charge of tax reform seems a bit like putting a tire manufacturer in charge of the auto industry to me. What a bunch of braggadocios know nothing narcissistic used car salesmen.

Any bets that at least half of these 100 clowns at the treasury are liberal democrat skunks? And what about the ´art of surrender´ progressive republicrats that probably make up the majority of the other 50 clowns?

I have as much faith in these grease stains as I do that dirt bag Schmucky Schumer will stop his attacks against Trump... and America. Otherwise we would have already seen results in the last budget. We are obviously NOT going to fire the thousands of Øbama bobble heads (the leakers) that have been embedded after 8 years and replace them with patriots. This is serious business and I´m tired of waiting for the likes of the Kushners and the Gorelicks and their pals to get their walking papers so that they can be replaced with honorable, decent patriotic Americans. This whole charade has gone on for waaaaaay too long. I believe ´the swamp´ is here to stay and will only get deeper. I would luv to be proven wrong. I can only hold my breath for so long. I just can´t take it anymore. But I will continue to pray for Trump and America.

I´ll do it for free all by myself in 15 seconds.

Here it is:

The Amendment to the Constitution instituting the Income Tax is hereby REPEALED!

See how easy that really is?

#1, I share your frustration, but the news is the agenda is still actively being developed and pursued.

Contrary to the cable "news" folks speculating that any tax reform or even a tax cut, would be delayed until next year, at best.

Or, to put it another way, the Democrat attacks on Trump are not slowing down the agenda.

Maybe the Senate will take it up in maybe 6 or 12 months. Maybe. Just a soon as they finish with healthcare. It takes all their energy to wring their hands regarding Trump.

What are the chances any of them are accountants or know anything about taxes? Or will it be like repealing Ocare by people we provide Cadillac coverage?

Why not start with not giving $10k back to welfare moms who didn´t pay into the system or zero to illegal immigrants?

26 God said, ‘Let us make man in our own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.’ 27 God created man in the image of himself, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them.

Attorney General Jeff Session may not have had the luxury of saying President Trump invoked executive privilege before he went before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, but his rationale for what Democratic critics decried as "stonewalling" was not without merit. Sessions declined to answer lawmakers´ questions regarding private conversations he had with Trump as part of the committee´s broader probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. "It would be inappropriate for me to answer and reveal private conversations with the president when he has not had a full

This week, we learned that former FBI Director James Comey will probably be a witness in any proceeding brought by his close friend Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Rod Rosenstein, a former Mueller staffer, appointed Mueller because Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who handed the oversight of this matter to his Deputy Rosenstein, had recused himself and that recusal was based on a misreading of the law by career Department of Justice attorneys. Sessions’ recusal, moreover, was engendered by illegal leaks and the investigation by Mueller is being fanned by more of them. James Comey -At the center of the narrative is

A slew of attacks Saturday evening that left a man dead and at least 13 injured in the span of about three hours marked the latest spat of weekend violence that has seen at least 30 people shot, including two fatally, across Chicago since Friday evening. More than 200 people have been shot in the first half of June, and more than 1,500 have been shot this year, according to Chicago Sun-Times data. Of those victims, 276 have died. Despite the carnage, this weekend is far behind the pace of the same weekend last year. From June 17, 2016, to

This was not how it was supposed to be. The most hated man in American media has dealt a serious and potentially knockout blow to the career of the woman who thought she was all set to take him on and proceed unimpeded on the fast track to maybe becoming the next Oprah. The battle pitting the two well-known personalities commenced two weeks ago when Megyn Kelly, the golden girl of 21st century TV infotainment, started pursuing controversial talk show host and Infowars founder Alex Jones as the next big interview “get” for her new prime time NBC television network

The moment a former US Special Forces
soldier-turned aid worker runs through gunfire
in Mosul to save a child from ISIS

The moment a former US Special Forces operator-turned aid worker rescues a young girl from the line of fire in Mosul has been caught on video. David Eubank, 56, pulled off the daring rescue recently in the embattled northern Iraq city, where allied forces have been on a grinding offensive to re-take the city from ISIS for the past eight months. Eubank, who founded the aid group Free Burma Rangers after retiring from the US Army, led the group along with his wife Karen and their three children ages 11 to 16, into Mosul after hearing horror stories of ISIS´s

St. Louis Cardinals Resist LGBTQ

The St. Louis Cardinals resolved to host Lance Berkman as their “Christian Day” speaker, despite outcry from the LGBTQ community. St. Louis Pride, an LGBTQ organization, protested the Cardinals’ decision to host Berkman and demanded that the Cardinals cancel his appearance at their annual Christian Day, a post-game event where a public figure, usually a former player as in Berkman’s case, speaks about how Christianity has affected their life. Berkman drew criticism from the LGBTQ community in 2015 and has been lambasted as a homophobe over his opposition to a Houston city ordinance that would allow transgender people access to

Steve Scalise, the congressman wounded this week by a left-wing zealot gunman, is now in serious condition and is showing signs of improvement, doctors said in an update Saturday afternoon released by the congressman’s office. MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Mr. Scalise had another surgery Saturday, the latest in a series of operations that’s stretched from the day of the attack Wednesday, and the doctors said he “continues to show signs of improvement.” “He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones,” the hospital said in the statement.

Last year, while visiting national parks in Colorado, I happened upon a real treat: Star Drive In, an outdoor theater that opened in 1955 in the southern part of the state. But my delight didn’t end there. Next door, I found the Best Western Movie Manor Motel, where you can look out a big window and watch the Star’s outdoor screen … from your bed! Each room is named for a movie star. Booking a night at the motel was a no-brainer. I checked into my no-frills Mel Gibson room and crawled into bed for the feature.

CITIES could begin to start running out of fresh water in less than ten years, experts warn, as fears grow for the global population. Researchers have issued a stark warning that 2024 could spell the end of the absolute necessity that is fresh water for some northern hemisphere cities. Iqaluit, in eastern Canada, is earmarked as the first area which will run dry in just seven years time, a study by York University has found. Increasing demand on the supply coupled with crippling climate change is seeing residents facing a bleak future. Various methods are being suggested in an attempt to address the

Being rich is more pleasant than not being rich for many reasons, one of which is that the more money you have, the less society´s rules and obligations weigh on you. You slide through life using your wealth and connections to avoid the hassles and complications that occupy ordinary people, seldom having your choices impeded by what others or even the government demand of you. In theory the rules apply to everyone, but in practice there are almost always ways around them that are only available to a few.

WASHINGTON – Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday introduced legislation that would automatically register voters who transmit information to state and federal agencies, potentially adding 50 million new voters around the country. In introducing the legislation on the House Floor, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) discussed Shelby County v. Holder, a 2013 Supreme Court decision that struck down certain aspects of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and eliminated the need for nine states to seek federal approval for altering voting laws. Central to the decision was the debate over racial discrimination through polling laws. Controversial voting laws in Texas and South Carolina went into effect

We should all hope not. Democrats may not have gotten everything they wanted out of a series of recent televised Senate Intelligence Committee hearings that ostensibly concerning Russian interference in the 2016 election. But as the party of the ‘resistance’ shifted its focus from alleged collusion between Moscow and Republicans to President Trump’s alleged obstruction of justice, the hearings also produced a new heroine for the anti-Trump Left. Senator Kamala Harris emerged from confrontations with the three national intelligence chiefs and Attorney General Jeff Sessions with her reputation enhanced. Her manner of attack was praised and she was acclaimed as

The Illinois official responsible for paying the state´s bills is warning that new court orders mean her office must pay out more each month than Illinois receives in revenue. Comptroller Susana Mendoza must prioritize what gets paid as Illinois nears its third year without a state budget. A mix of state law, court orders and pressure from credit rating agencies requires some items be paid first. Those include debt and pension payments, state worker paychecks and some school funding.

Following the acquittal of a police officer charged in the death of Philando Castile in Minnesota, there’s definitely been a renewed conversation in America about police brutality and the justice system. After nearly a week of deliberations, the jury found Jeronimo Yanez not guilty of all counts in the July 2016 shooting of Castile. The shooting took place in a suburb of St. Paul and was caught on video. Yanez’s acquittal was met with strong condemnation from protesters around the United States.

Los Angeles - The nation´s oldest U.S. senator looks like she´s sticking around. California´s Dianne Feinstein turns 84 on Thursday and is displaying signs that she´s headed for a re-election campaign, not a retirement party. While the Democrat has been coy when asked about seeking a fifth full term next year, her political committee, unambiguously titled Feinstein for Senate 2018, raised more than $650,000 in the first three months of this year in a cue she is looking ahead. Feinstein plays a marquee role for Democrats on Capitol Hill, where she has queried Attorney General Jeff Sessions and former FBI Director James Comey

The FBI on Friday refused to hand over to The Washington Times unclassified memos that former Director James Comey wrote describing his meetings with President Trump because they are part of a pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding. The denial of the documents, whose existence was made known and whose release was encouraged by Mr. Comey himself, was a response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by The Times. It came as CNN and the New York Times filed lawsuits against the FBI after the bureau failed to respond to similar requests within a specified amount of time.

Yesterday’s news, aside from the usual Trump obstructing, colluding, and making money on his investments, included a ship collision. As described by ABC, a “Navy destroyer collides with container ship off coast of Japan.” NBC had a similar headline, “Navy destroyer collides with ship off Japan.” (snip)The headlines, by saying the US Navy ship collided with the Japanese container ship, imply that the Navy ship hit the container ship.What do the pictures say? This first photo is of the US Navy destroyer.
