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.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have

Jack Burkman told DailyMail.com he was doused in the face with spray and struck on the head by an unknown assailant who pulled up in a black SUV outside his home at 7:25pm on Tuesday, in what he said was a ´professional hit´.

A Prunedale, Calif., man says vandals toppled 100 beehives and killed hundreds of thousands of bees after dousing them with diesel fuel. Mike Hickenbottom told KSBW-TV that the Italian and Russian honeybees on his property were attacked Saturday. Hickenbottom says the bees are stored on his property during the winter, and beekeeper Alfonzo Perez leases the hives to pollinate almond trees on farms across the state. Hickenbottom says neighbors have complained about the bees in the past, but the bees are not aggressive. An estimated 200,000 bees died. The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is investigating, and authorities said no arrests had been made. Prunedale

The White House slammed Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona Wednesday as someone desperate for attention, after he gave a speech in the Senate criticizing President Trump’s hostile relationship with the media. “He’s criticizing the president because he has terrible poll numbers. He’s looking for some attention,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. She also accused him of being a “mouthpiece” for the repressive regime in Cuba on a recent trip there, and said it was ironic that he would attack Mr. Trump for not tolerating dissent. She said Mr. Flake’s accusations were “utterly ridiculous.”

President Trump denies having used a vulgar term last Thursday to describe dysfunctional Third World countries. Yet there’s no denying that the leftist media, believing he did, responded by repeatedly disgorging the term in a childish orgy of decadence. Of course, the media no doubt think they’re damaging Trump — but they’re actually damaging society. Let’s be clear: Leftists certainly object to the substance of Trump’s comments, that we shouldn’t continually absorb poor, unskilled, often functionally illiterate and unassimilable people from Third World nations. But they also object to his alleged style, labeling as obscene the use of s***hole (toilet) to

IEA chief Fatih Birol said one of the “[f]our large-scale shifts in the global energy system set the scene for the coming decades” is “the U.S. becoming the undisputed global oil and gas leader.” “The remarkable ability of producers to unlock new resources cost-effectively pushes the combined United States oil and gas output in 2040 to a level 50% higher than any other country has ever managed,” Birol said in his Senate testimony.

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed.

Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

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

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.
