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.

#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?

CBS Evening News hosted a panel of three women, two African-American and one Caucasian, all who voted for and support President Trump. The outlet was surprised to find that recent events have not changed their opinion about the current Commander-in-Chief. Janelle Jones, Ellen Diehl, and Lucretia Hughes appeared on the program Tuesday. No doubt the mainstream media outlet was looking for a juicy story that including the women shedding tears over Trump’s reaction to the racially-motivated march and murder in Charlottesville.

Although most people under 40 are astonishingly ignorant about it, a great worldwide armed conflict known as World War II took place from 1939-1945 in the European and Pacific regions. It is relevant and important to know and understand because the outcome of World War II put into place the political, economic and geographical conditions and relationships that make the world what it is today. An understanding of the ramifications of WWII is central to comprehending how today’s world came to be. People under 40—heck, even under 60—would do themselves a huge favor if they learned some history and saw

Media working overtime

Major media outlets this week encouraged people to speculate on whether President Trump is a racist and even commissioned artists to convey the idea that he is, but still fell short of generating a consensus that Trump is prejudiced against non-whites. The effort is nearly a week old now. It began Saturday when Trump was criticized for not immediately singling out neo-Nazis and white supremacists for their role in the violence in Charlottesville, Va. When Trump finally did identify the groups on Monday, the press said he was too slow. Then a day later, Trump again condemned white supremacists, but

One American was among the 14 people killed in a pair of deadly terror attacks in Spain, the State Department announced Friday. The assaults -- in Barcelona and Cambrils -- wounded more than 100 others, and one U.S. citizen was also among that count, officials said. Neither person´s name was immediately released. The news comes as a fourth person was arrested on Friday in connection with the terror attacks. Police shot and killed five suspects who were equipped with bomb belts in Cambrils. The belts were found later to be fake. It was not immediately clear if the Barcelona van

The ridiculous campaign by virtually every media outlet, every Democrat and far too many squishy Republicans to label Trump some kind of racist and Nazi sympathizer is beginning to have the stink of an orchestrated smear. The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning. Planned by whom? Time may tell. We know that Michael Signer, the mayor of Charlottesville, declared his city to be the "capital of the resistance" just after Trump´s inauguration. We know that Gov. Terry McAuliffe is a corruptocrat, joined at the hip to the Clintons. He

GETTYSBURG, Pa.- Officials with the National Park Service said the Confederate monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania will not be removed from the battlefield. Katie Lawhon, senior adviser for the park service´s Gettysburg battlefield office, told the Reading Eagle (http://bit.ly/2uTe2rn ) the site-specific memorials are important, and the park service´s job is to historically and objectively tell the stories the monuments commemorate. Her reassurance comes after a heated debate over Confederate monuments spread across the U.S. Three people died amid turmoil in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday over the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Five terrorists were shot dead by police in the early hours of this morning after they attempted a second attack in a beach resort near Barcelona - hours after an atrocity in the Spanish city killed 13. Seven members of the public including a policeman were hurt in the latest attack in Cambrils, 70 miles south-west of Barcelona, which saw the Jihadis’ car overturn before they were gunned down by armed police. Footage from the scene appears to show bodies wearing suicide belts strewn around the seafront. Bystanders had jumped onto the beach when gunshots rang out at around 1am

Brad Dacus was thousands of miles away in California last weekend when the Charlottesville protest erupted, so he was flabbergasted when CNN labeled his Pacific Justice Institute a “hate group.” “Here are all the active hate groups where you live,” said the CNN wire story headline on Chicago’s WGN-TV website. The article listed the 917 organizations on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s much-disputed “hate map,” which names racist groups like the Aryan Nation alongside mainstream conservative organizations such as the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Family Research Council. Mr. Dacus’ conservative Sacramento-based institute, which specializes in religious-liberty cases, was featured

Democratic candidate for Maryland´s governorship Ben Jealous was arrested on Tuesday outside the White House during an immigration rally. Jealous was leading the rally around the White House when he and 26 others were taken into custody, CBS reports. The rally was in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an immigration program. "His actions today are consistent with his life-long work as a civil rights leader and community organizer, including his efforts to steer passage of the Maryland Dream Act," Jealous spokesman Kevin Harris said.

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter.

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar.

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how

Gore made the statement in a video interview published Thursday on LAD Bible, the United Kingdom´s largest entertainment website. He was there to discuss climate change and his new documentary, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," which was released this month. The interviewer asked if there was "one piece of advice" for Trump, what would it be? He responded: "Resign." The interview appears to have been recorded before the premiere of Gore´s new film in the U.K. on Aug. 10. Gore´s
