Zeldin Has Nearly $1.17 Million In Campaign War Chest

Or is it possible that Paul Manafort broke the law and should be prosecuted? " Oct 30, 17 1:20 PM

"We will get Hillary" sounds like something that would go on the tombstone of the Republican party." Oct 30, 17 2:20 PM

Um...anyone with any interest in justice cares what Manafort did ten years ago.

When Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath it was because the investigation into Whitewater turned up other wrongdoing.

Now, Mueller's turning over stones uncovered Manafort's past wrongdoing. Why wouldn't we prosecute him?" Oct 30, 17 2:36 PM

"Anyone who thinks Trump's campaign managers getting indicted isn't about Clinton is crazy!"

Well, ok then." Oct 30, 17 2:40 PM

That "volunteer" was announced as a member of Trump's foreign policy team in March 2016.

During his tenure he told an unnamed campaign official about his contacts with two people with ties to the Russian gov't, and that unnamed official responded "great work" and "[we'll] work it through the campaign."

Uranium One hearings are already slated and if any wrongdoing is found it should be prosecuted accordingly!" Oct 30, 17 2:59 PM

That was a general quip about the Republican party's obsession with Hillary, not about you in particular Taz." Oct 30, 17 3:00 PM

Maybe, maybe not. The only ones who really know are Mueller and his team!" Oct 30, 17 3:27 PM

But just think: if we repeal the estate tax then we'll get to keep 100% of our inheritances above $5.49 million!" Oct 30, 17 3:40 PM

Wait, I thought I was mets. When did June become the Jekyll to my Hyde? " Oct 30, 17 5:26 PM

Oooh, do you know something we don't fresh? Please dish! " Oct 30, 17 6:41 PM

Except repealing the estate tax will literally only benefit the rich.

And reducing the SALT deduction will directly hurt New Yorkers, wiping out the tax cut we're hoping for.

And reducing the child credit could actually result in people with 2+ kids rising.

Maybe it's not liberals who should educate themselves." Oct 30, 17 9:11 PM

I'm sure there's a goldilocks combination of proposals getting kicked around that would actually decrease my taxes, but what I've seen so far isn't it. " Oct 31, 17 5:56 AM

Slimy, the point I addressed is "who will benefit and who will lose out", if you want to talk about the merits of these tax cuts:

1. Because the estate tax isn't on the person leaving the money, who was already taxed, it's on the beneficiaries who are receiving INCOME. Also, it's only applied on inheritance amounts over $5.49 Million, so I'm not losing sleep over it.

2. Because raising children is expensive and we've decided that it benefits everyone to let parents take home more income to aid in the process.

Now, let's start from the premise that the child credit and estate tax exist: why would you actively want to hurt parents to benefit multi millionaires?" Oct 31, 17 7:20 AM

It's real curious that people keep calling a repeal of the estate tax a "middle class tax cut."

To inherit a $5.49 Million estate takes you out of middle-class by definition, no?" Oct 31, 17 7:23 AM

You sound confused." Oct 31, 17 7:24 AM

For some reason I can't "like" your comment (it just refreshes the page) but you're spot on.

Let's wait and see where the chips fall before calling Trump a dead-man-walking or claiming Mueller is a democrat stooge." Oct 31, 17 8:13 AM

So he's a bad judge of character upfront, but eventually gets it right?

That's a lackluster quality." Oct 31, 17 8:14 AM

This...is not relevant to this story." Oct 31, 17 9:08 AM

So he's willing to hire an unscrupulous character as long as it benefits him?

That's even worse." Oct 31, 17 9:19 AM

So is Trump a good judge of character or not?

If he is, then he purposely hired an unethical person.

If he's not...well, that's what I'm saying. He's not." Oct 31, 17 9:24 AM

LOL there's a name I haven't heard in a while.

I think it's a binary choice, though.

Is it possible that Trump is both a good judge of character AND didn't realize the Manafort was a shady guy?

I guess so, but it cuts against his being a good judge of character, doesn't it?" Oct 31, 17 9:54 AM

You should set up a camera and share videos of these fools.

Not necessarily to catch them, just to laugh at them." Oct 31, 17 9:55 AM

YES! There's so much anti-middle class garbage in this bill I recoil whenever I see it described as middle-class tax relief." Oct 31, 17 10:38 AM

So, if Manafort is convicted, would it affect your view on whether Trump is a good judge of character?

Can a person consistently make personnel choices of questionable character (Manafort, Christie, Flynn, Scaramucci) and still laud themselves as a good judge of character?

How many shady characters chosen would it take to bring into question whether Trump is actually a good judge of character?" Oct 31, 17 11:01 AM

I thought we were having a discussion on what it means to be a good judge of character and whether that applies to Trump.

If you're not here for discourse then why are you here?" Oct 31, 17 11:17 AM

So were you interested in that discussion? Do you agree with Trump's view that he's a good judge of character?

You can choose to not form an opinion on it at all and avoid the discussion altogether, but a yes/no answer is subject to debate and discussion." Oct 31, 17 11:34 AM

Thanks for your thoughtful reply :-)" Oct 31, 17 11:40 AM

Considering the revolving door that's been installed in the west wing, one could argue it was never really put together all that well!" Oct 31, 17 11:43 AM

We've been able to keep this discussion focused on the proposed tax-reform...please take the indictment discussion to the other Zeldin article." Oct 31, 17 11:46 AM

This administration has set several records for shortest tenures at various cabinet positions. I've lost count." Oct 31, 17 11:57 AM

Was it the establishment's fault that Scaramucci openly accused Bannon of auto-fellatio?

Was it the media that made Flynn lie about his contacts with Russia?

These are all self-inflicted wounds, and rookie mistakes at that." Oct 31, 17 12:55 PM

Admittedly, I got stuck at "mischaracterized examples." I'd insist they're accurate characterizations, but how would you have described Scaramucci's phone call? " Oct 31, 17 1:34 PM

When talking about estates the money isn't "theirs" because "they" are dead." Oct 31, 17 4:42 PM

The estate tax is on the beneficiary, who receives income in the form of an inheritance. Dead people don't pay taxes. They're dead." Oct 31, 17 4:55 PM

Zeldin Has Nearly $1.17 Million In Campaign War Chest

I understand now, that's fair." Oct 31, 17 7:19 PM

That's a good question. Maybe life insurance is not a property interest but a contractual obligation? Is it there an attorney in the house? " Oct 31, 17 7:32 PM

It's being a worked on behind closed doors. They really can't afford to muck up the CBO score on this one. " Oct 31, 17 7:41 PM

I think Po Boy is looking at the turnover in the context of the wave of criticism received by this administration, and suggesting that some erosion was to be expected.

That's a fair outlook, although Po Boy and I would probably disagree on whether that wave of criticism is deserved." Nov 1, 17 6:07 AM

Unpaid? You know who else was unpaid? Manafort, Bannon, and Kushner.

Unknown? In a March 2016 interview Trump said "George Papadopoulos, he’s an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy" " Nov 1, 17 6:42 AM

Everyone take note: 37 is a lot of words to Even Flow. How do you even get through a book, mate? " Nov 1, 17 6:43 AM

I kind of want it to happen just to see everyone's heads explode.

Impeachment would be on the table the following morning." Nov 1, 17 7:28 PM

What increased tax revenue? You're talking about a steep drop in revenue if the estate tax is repealed. " Nov 1, 17 8:37 PM

Zeldin Has Nearly $1.17 Million In Campaign War Chest

I think the more interesting part of his comment is the reference to the "discredited" Trump dossier, in light of how much is being corroborated as time goes by. " Nov 1, 17 11:13 PM

Diversity has inherent value and provides tangible benefits." Nov 2, 17 6:05 AM

And the merits of diversity in the workplace deserve to be part of the discussion in hiring." Nov 2, 17 9:42 AM

I have a hard time getting behind a legislative response to this attack when last month there was zero support for congressional action following the attack in Las Vegas" Nov 2, 17 8:10 PM

Hillary would have been a fine president but she's a terrible loser, as opposed to Trump who is an well-versed loser, but a terrible president. " Nov 3, 17 6:01 AM

Zeldin Has Nearly $1.17 Million In Campaign War Chest

I think he was saying that Trump doesn't pick the best people as he alleges, which wasn't a hard point to gather...for example, his new Fed Chair is the first one without an economics degree in 40 years..." Nov 3, 17 6:08 AM

We know what you meant, and are suggesting that an element of diversity is a qualification in some circumstances." Nov 3, 17 7:22 AM

Define mass voter fraud. As a party member I'm angry that she received preferential treatment from the DNC but that doesn't make it new or criminal." Nov 3, 17 9:53 AM

"Diversity" in the abstract is indeed pointless, but purposeful inclusion of groups that have been historically disadvantaged is beneficial to current and future generations." Nov 3, 17 10:03 AM

Moreso, I meant to say: mass murder is a fact of life in 2017. Deal with it." Nov 3, 17 10:05 AM

There's lots of things I'd rather spend money on than old news...yeah, we knew Hillary was funding the DNC in August 2015. Keep up kids." Nov 3, 17 11:10 AM

Don't forget: growth about 50,000 jobs under expectation" Nov 3, 17 11:11 AM
