Warren Proposes Ending Trump
Tax Cuts and Adding 3 New Taxes

Original Article

Posted By: M2, 10/9/2019 7:35:28 AM

Senator and presidential contender Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) has proposed rolling back the tax cuts implemented by the Trump administration in 2018 and imposing an “ultra-millionaire tax,” an “excessive Lobbying Tax,” and an increased tax on gun manufacturers.” She claims these new taxes will ultimately serve the purpose of financing “universal childcare, student loan debt relief, and down payments on a Green New Deal and Medicare for All.” “As the wealthiest nation in the history of the world,” Warren's campaign webpage says, “We can make investments that create economic opportunity, address rural neglect, and a legacy of racial discrimination -- if we stop handing out giant tax giveaways to rich people

Is it something in their genes that require dems to insist we need new taxes? Or is it just their insanity that makes them believe they can solve all our problems by taxing us to death?

Warren is both a LIAR and a pipe-dreamer. She wants to close the gap between the rich and the poor by...cutting down the rich? This is the difference between capitalism and socialism: capitalism creates wealth, socialism only redistributes it. She should be concentrating on ideas and programs that give incentives to people to start businesses and invest venture capital but like any other socialist crook she sees what's in place and wants to control it. Not to grow it. She does not have the slightest idea how to do that.

Squaw talk big heap stupid. The only way to achieve large tax increases is to do it after you are in office. Anybody talking about taking away your money beforehand will not be elected. It worked great for Bathhouse Barry and his $2500 per year savings on health insurance and then Bam! Obamacare. Slick Willy also used that strategy. Warren carefully avoided mentioning how she would achieve her giveaways until she was repeatedly pressed by that question but now the beaver is out of the trap.

Seems to me that a tax on gun manufacturers is akin to a tax on churches - against the Constitution. Just as is a fee for a ''permit' to do what is already allowed. Any tax on a producer, of anything, is ultimately, a tax on the consumer. So, basically, the democRATS waant to tax us to death (and there is a tax on that, too)!

'During the late nineteenth century, various groups, including the Populist Party, favored the establishment of a progressive income tax at the federal level. These groups believed that tariffs unfairly taxed the poor, and they favored using the income tax to shift the tax burden onto wealthier individuals. [snip] Though conservative Republican leaders had initially expected that the amendment would not be ratified, a coalition of Democrats, progressive Republicans, and other groups ensured that the necessary number of states ratified the amendment. Shortly after the amendment was ratified, Congress imposed a federal income tax with the Revenue Act of 1913. Wikipedia It initially only taxed the very wealthy: Morgan, Rockfeller, etc, and so was somewhat popular. You see how that went.

Ending the Trump tax cuts--what about adding back all the regulations he has also cut?--then saddling taxpayers with the Green New Deal, Medicare for all (pure socialized medicine), the wealth tax would totally destroy the American economy. Totally. Now here is a metaphor for you: our economy under the Democrats' planned communist changes (socialism isn't a strong enough word for what they plan to do). Do you want to see what total destruction looks like? Complete defeat with all four legs in the air? That's one shot with a .300 Winchester Magnum rifle at 253 yards distance. The 250+ pound boar hog never knew what him him. In chess parlance, he flicked over his king and immediately resigned. This would be the American economy after the Democrats take over and pass their wish list. They want to make us poor, and believe that if they tap us enough, poverty will be eliminated. They never learn. Just defeat them. Or submit to economic hell.

#11 says she's insane. I think that's true. How else do you explain her chronic lying, perhaps even on the pathological end of the scale? Her lies are designed to weave in something she wants, but emphasizes some aspect she has created in order to elicit empathy, draw in the vulnerable and credulous. Her lies are easily disproved, and so the pathological liar/narcissist lay person diagnosis seems correct. As old Vlad Lenin asserted, all you need is some useful idiots; as Johnathan Gruber more recently asserted, wanna sell a transoceanic Amtrak train all you need is gullible voters, stupid Americans Next time you see Warren hop skip and jaunt onto to the stage, waving her arms wildly like a whirling dervish, she's about to spin another outlandish tale.

Americans are showing more animosity toward members of the opposing political party, with the majority of both Republicans and Democrats saying those on the other side of the aisle are too close-minded, the Pew Research Center reported Thursday. In a survey of 9,895 adults between Sept. 3 and 15, researchers used a “feeling thermometer” metric to measure respondents’ reception toward members of the opposing party. Seventy-nine percent of Democratic respondents indicated “cold” or “very cold” feelings toward Republicans, which is also 7% increase from May. Reciprocally, 83% of Republican respondents felt “cold” or “very cold” feelings toward Democrats, which has also risen 7% since the spring.

We all know there's such a thing as a push poll. We also know that a heckuva lot of pollsters get their results wrong. Nevertheless, here's an unwelcome Fox News poll result being reported as news and being flashed, at least at first, in red letters at the center of the page on the Drudge Report: Just over half of voters want President Trump impeached and removed from office, according to a Fox News Poll released Wednesday. A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether.

In order to remove the U.S. president, the vice president, federal judges, and other federal officials from office, Article I, Section II of the U.S. Constitution gives the U.S. House of Representatives "the sole Power of Impeachment." Article I, Section III gives the U.S. Senate "the sole Power to try all Impeachments." In the history of the United States, the U.S. House has initiated impeachment proceedings dozens of times; however, only 19 individuals have faced actual Articles of Impeachment. Most of these 19 were judges, and most were acquitted or resigned from office before facing trial in the Senate. All, save two

The latest Census Bureau Current Population Survey data now show that middle-class incomes, after adjusting for inflation, have surged by $5,003 since Donald Trump became president in January 2017. Median household income has now reached $65,976 – an all-time high and up more than 8 percent in 2019 dollars under the Trump presidency. This data was compiled by the statisticians at Sentier Research, an economic research group whose founders have more than 30 years of experience at the Census Bureau in analyzing the monthly income numbers. I reported last week in the Wall Street Journal that real median family income had soared by $4,146 under Trump through July 2019

Attacks on the electoral college are nothing new, but there’s no question that it’s been under heavier fire than usual lately. Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg and Beto O’Rourke have all said they want to scrap it. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has repeatedly tweeted against it as well. “Every vote should be = in America, no matter who you are and where you come from,” she said. Ocasio-Cortez went on to argue that the electoral college allows smaller, rural states outsized influence over the presidential election process, claiming it is akin to “electoral affirmative action.” But how much does the electoral college really advantage smaller states?

President Donald Trump signed executive orders Wednesday afternoon that are designed to take much of the sting out of what conservatives believe is an out-of-control administrative state. The orders will limit the use of a tool the Trump administration believes short-circuits the rule-making process. They take aim at federal guidance, which agencies can use to explain how they intend to implement policy. The Wall Street Journal reported on the orders Tuesday. The orders are expected to dramatically reduce the impact a key element of the country’s regulatory infrastructure has on businesses and Americans, according to White House spokesman Judd Deere.

The teaching of the Catholic Church and most Christian churches is that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was incarnated as fully man and fully God. As the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, "The unique and altogether singular event of the Incarnation of the Son of God does not mean that Jesus Christ is part God and part man, nor does it imply that he is the result
