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.

A Republican running for the U.S. House of Representatives in Oklahoma said he would "use" his Second Amendment if anyone treated his daughter the way President Trump treats women. Danny Stockstill, a Republican running for the vacant seat in Oklahoma’s 1st Congressional District, admitted that, while he approves of Trump’s job in office, he doesn’t want him to be a role model for his children. “So why are we so afraid to say, ‘There’s no way I want my son to act like [Trump]?´" Stockstill said during a Tuesday night forum, according to the Tulsa World. “If my daughter ever

The rhetorical attacks on incoming National Security Council Executive Secretary Fred Fleitz (the author’s former colleague) have been shrill and ineffective. Conservatives have rallied to Fleitz’ defense, bolstered in part by Fleitz’s long history of work as a Central Intelligence Agency analyst, State Department official, and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence staffer, along with his solid reputation working on Iran and nonproliferation-related issues. According to Trump administration insiders, the White House blames Obama allies and Iran deal advocates for ginning up the non-controversy, and there’s no indication of a willingness to surrender the scalp of a long-time national security

Peter Strzok, who was pulled off Special Counsel Robert Mueller´s investigative team last year, played a more central role than previously known in both the Russia and Hillary Clinton email probes, a lawmaker familiar with the matter told Fox News Tuesday. The lawmaker´s assessment of Strzok´s role in both investigations was based on the most recent records and testimony, including a closed-door interview with FBI espionage chief Bill Priestap. Priestap was interviewed Tuesday as part of an ongoing joint investigation by the House Judiciary and Oversight committees. Priestap was Strzok´s supervisor and oversaw both the Russia and Clinton investigations.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission
