Wait, wait... so union efforts pay off in getting people double digit raises and Biden mispronounces Tesla in the list of companies and you think that's going to make him look bad vs. trumps word salad?  Keep pushing the Biden is old /slow/incapable meme if you want, but the rest of that clip is miles away better than anything from trump recently.

Also, Trevor Noah was good but not Jon Stewart good. Now that Noah's gone, the show's in peril. Since Stewart owns a part of it, he's got to do something to salvage his stake in the property.

FWIW - Is the Beakers dyslexia on the link intentional?  The article is about Haley stopping Trump (based on the link)...not the other way around.



At least you're paying attention.

Biden bows out, and someone younger, hipper, and electable steps to the forefront. And then it becomes a real race, worthy of attention (instead of gawking).

There is no clear winner in either tax policy, without an effort to control spending. Keeping corporate taxes low and raising taxes on capital gains for the wealthy are a step in the right direction...encourages reinvestment of capital rather than distributions to shareholders. Also, raisie the estate taxes above a reasonable value.

WASHINGTON—There isn’t a dime’s worth of a difference between the political parties. The chasm is more like $6 trillion.

The winners of November’s presidential and congressional elections will quickly face decisions on extending tax cuts scheduled to expire after 2025. President Biden and Republicans support starkly different tax plans.

Republicans generally want to extend all expiring tax cuts from the 2017 law former President Donald Trump signed. The price tag: $4 trillion over a decade.

Biden proposed extending Trump’s tax cuts for households making under $400,000 annually but said the rest should expire. Beyond that, he would raise taxes further on top earners and corporations. That plan, including tax increases the president hasn’t fully detailed, would generate more than $2 trillion beyond current forecasts.

That $6 trillion gap is on the ballot, and the ultimate resolution will affect family budgets, corporate profits and the federal government’s fiscal health amid rising debt.

With the White House, Senate and House up for grabs, one party could sweep into office and impose much of its fiscal vision. More likely, however, they will be limited by intraparty fights. If neither party wins full control, a divided government would likely force compromise.

Tax battle looms

Here is why the tax fight looms in 2025.

In 2017, Republicans cut corporate and individual tax rates and curtailed tax breaks. They made the corporate cut permanent but scheduled most individual tax changes to lapse, a common strategy to lower the headline cost of legislation and pass partisan fiscal bills.

They bet that Americans would get accustomed to lower taxes and that future Congresses wouldn’t let taxes rise on most households.

If Congress does nothing and those changes expire, the standard deduction would shrink, marginal rates would climb and a deduction for closely held businesses would vanish.

That is considered the baseline scenario by nonpartisan budget forecasters. The Congressional Budget Office projects that the U.S. will collect $60 trillion in revenue from 2024 through 2033. Biden would aim above that target; Republicans would go below.

Republicans push to keep cuts

Republicans see the 2017 law as a rousing success that boosted the prepandemic economy. The party consensus remains that the cuts should continue beyond 2025.

GOP presidential candidates haven’t fully specified tax plans. Trump, who leads in polls, hasn’t articulated a second-term tax policy besides a new 10% across-the-board tariff.

People with nothing move to where they can get something/anything. Republicans pretend to support self-reliance, and so provide little if possible. This is, of course, Christian™ - to deny those in need.

And, because we allow the super rich people (remember that corporations are now people, too) to suck up wealth and dodge taxes, the others are left with little. Little food. Little safety. Little hope. Tell them to poo somewhere else all you want; they can’t. Living on the streets eating out of trash is their version of keeping alive. Some are drug addled; some are crazy; some are just screwed over. Since they’re so different there’s no good expedient solution - but the GOP thinks that hurting them or shoving them elsewhere is good policy. Again, it’s Christian™.

A sanctuary city doesn’t mean it has adequate resources, but it means they don’t hate/fear/torment the people coming from somewhere else. So, of course the GOP mocks that intended kindness and tries to scuttle it when possible. It embarrasses them to be so parsimonious, hateful, and seen.
