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.

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.

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.

An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow is furious after the DOJ blamed a “glitch” for withholding ‘missing’ Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs from the ACLJ. How convenient.

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will appear as a guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.” Her appearance on the drag-queen competition show has already been filmed, her office told the Washington Post. “She had a ‘fabulous’ time,” Pelosi’s spokesman told the paper. Pelosi’s longtime support of the LGBT community and what she sees as attacks from the Trump administration on the gay and transgender community underscored why she wanted to appear on the show. The new season begins Jan. 25 on VH1.

The Trump administration launched a division at the Health and Human Services Department on Thursday to protect doctors and medical providers who object to participating in abortions and assisted suicide on religious or moral grounds. Officials said the division, part of the HHS’ Office of Civil Rights, will stand ready to assist health care workers who say they’re being coerced into participating in procedures that violate their beliefs. Democrats strenuously objected, saying it will restrict health care access to women or transgender patients. They’re already fuming over President Trump’s attacks on Planned Parenthood and his decision to curb Obama-era rules

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease."
