Tesla plans to unveil new car in the $40,000 range in early 2015. The Model E. Can’t wait for this. Need to start saving for a down payment.
Turns out Ayn-Randianism doesn’t make for factual macro-economics.
No offense Brazil. But that won’t fucking stop the NSA.
The question is… can this tax system if simplified close our deficits without gutting the budget. If you eradicate all corporate welfare could this possibly work? If thats what Republicans are offering here in exchange for lowering corporate tax to 25% from 35 (because very few multinational corps actually pay 35 if anything in taxes) and ensuring all corporations will pay that then thats a big win for the nation. I need to see more specifics. Lowering tax rates is fine so long as enforcement is iron fisted and without loopholes via tax breaks and porous tax laws. I’d like to of course see capital gains taxed at the same rate as the top wealthy tax rate.
Either way I like the idea of a page 1 rewrite of the tax code. Its cumbersome, it rewards duplicity and wealth unfavorably versus the middle class and the poor, and for small businesses it can be awful.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is
likely to veto the state’s controversial measure that could allow businesses to refuse service to gay and lesbians due to religious beliefs, according to three people close to the governor and familiar with her thinking.
One of those is longtime Brewer political adviser Chuck Coughlin, who told NBC News: “It’s been her proclivity in the past to focus on the priorities she wants them [the legislature] to accomplish, and this was clearly not part of her agenda.
"She doesn’t want to take any actions that could jeopardize the economic momentum we’ve seen here in Arizona,” said another person close to the governor.
What he didn’t say… “She doesn’t want to take any actions that are illegal, un-constitutional, un-American, hateful, and prejudicial” Instead her prerogative is “economic momentum”.
