WILL SHERROD BROWN DELIVER TAX REFORM TO OHIOANS?

Cleveland, OH - House Republicans introduced their tax reform legislation today, which kicks off efforts to provide American taxpayers with a simpler and more competitive tax system that will put more money in their pockets and create jobs.

One of the biggest questions for Ohioans is if Career Politician Sherrod Brown will join his Republican colleagues in providing historic tax cuts for middle-class families and businesses. So far, Brown and his fellow Washington Democrats have done everything in their power to obstruct Republicans’ pro-growth agenda. But with the 2018 election looming, can Brown really afford to deny Ohioans the middle-class tax cut they want and need?

“Career politician Sherrod Brown’s 24-year history of voting for tax hikes is not a good sign for Ohioans future,” said Republican Party of Cuyahoga County Chairman Rob Frost. "If Brown fails to support Republican efforts to deliver comprehensive tax reform, Ohio voters will know he doesn’t have their backs. Ohio families and businesses can’t afford Brown standing with Washington liberals against President Trump’s tax cut plan and they will reject Brown’s obstructionism in 2018.”

Based on this evidence, I would guess no. 

This is purely a guess.

Sen. Sherrod Brown won't apologize for comments about white supremacy in White House


By Marisa Schultz 

White House full of Goldman Sachs execs, white supremacists: Senator [Brown]

WASHINGTON — A Democratic senator from Ohio described the Trump White House as a haven for Goldman Sachs executives and white supremacists.

Sen. Sherrod Brown says he’s concerned about the Wall Street types pressuring the president for tax cuts for the rich.

“You walk into the White House, and it looks far too much like a retreat for Goldman Sachs executives,” Brown told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The people closest to the president whispering in his ear all want to do tax cuts for — want to do trickle-down economics, big tax cuts for the wealthiest people in the country, and hope it trickles down.”

Brown says he wants to work with President Trump on tax reform, especially provisions to keep jobs in the America, but he’s troubled by rhetoric coming 

out of the White House.

He sided with Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who said the White House is “full of white supremacists” following the ongoing criticisms against her from Trump and White House chief of staff John Kelly.

“I agree that (former White House strategist) Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, and (current staffer) Stephen Miller seems to be,” Brown said. “And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled around the White House.”

Bannon has returned to Breitbart News and is trying to unseat Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell by backing anti-establishment GOP primary candidates.

Miller is a trusted policy adviser in the White House who has been instrumental in devising travel ban and immigration policies, among others.

Former Goldman Sachs executives in the White House include Gary Cohn, head of the National Economic Council; Steve Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, and Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders denounced Brown’s characterizations.

“Senator Brown’s comments are outrageous and slanderous,” Sanders said in a statement to The Post. “The nonstop name calling from the left continues to show an inability to build consensus and fix the problems ailing hardworking Americans. Senator Brown needs to understand that when he calls out public servants who are part of the Trump administration, he is indicting the voters in Ohio themselves who overwhelmingly voted for the president’s agenda.”

Will someone please explain to me how lowering the statutory corporate tax rate to 20% will make a difference to the average Common Joe? The average current statutory (legal) corporate tax rate is 38.9%, but the average effective (actually paid) rate is 18.7%. They are already paying lower than 20% due to corporate deductions and credits. For example, Exxon Mobile got 12.8 billion in subsidies just in the last eight years. Their actual paid tax rate was 13.6%. I would call this corporate welfare. Wall Street and the corporate stockholders win again.

Just a totally different thought......43 years in government!!! (Hell!! I thought my 49 years in the laboratory was a very long time!)   24 of those years in the US Congress!!! Why do we continue to allow career politicians??? NOT what Congress was intended to be!

If we can't get Term Limits, how about the "mandatory retirement age" imposed by so many companies???
