I don't even know why they continue legitimizing this useless press corps by continuing to give daily public briefings...I would have said F Them long ago, based on these constant, ridiculous questions.

Compare the MSN to other papers outside the major cities and you see a complete difference in reporting. It is a lot more factual than the MSN.

Quote:
It hit me this week, around the time when Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blithely seconding Chief of Staff John Kelly’s Civil War revisionism, that I missed Sean Spicer.

I missed the panic in his eyes, which signaled a scintilla of awareness that he was peddling hooey. I missed the squeak in his voice, which suggested perhaps the tiniest smidgen of shame.

He never seemed to me entirely at home in his domicile of deception; she dwells without evident compunction in a gaudier fairyland of grander fictions. There’s no panic. No squeak. Just that repulsed expression, as if a foul odor had wafted in and she knew — just knew — that the culprit was CNN.

True, she hasn’t told a lie as tidy as Spicer’s ludicrousness about Donald Trump’s inauguration crowds. But her briefings are breathtaking — certainly this week’s were. For some 20 minutes every afternoon, down is up, paralysis is progress, enmity is harmony, stupid is smart, villain is victim, disgrace is honor, plutocracy is populism and Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia if anyone would summon the nerve to investigate her (because, you know, that never, ever happens). I watch and listen with sheer awe...

Not quite..

Quote:
Whoa, our happy little bar tale has suddenly taken an ugly turn, has it not? Because under the GOP's must recent plan, the average taxpayer in the richest 1% will enjoy a reduction in their tax bill of 18%, while the middle class will see a decrease in tax of 5% -9%.

It gets worse when you look at things from a percentage-of-after-tax-income perspective, where the richest 1% -- #10 in Sanders' story -- will walk away with an 8.5% increase in after-tax cash, while everyone from #7 on down will see a bump of just 1%.

Then there's the little matter that according to the Tax Policy Center, one-in-three taxpayers in #5, #6, and #7 would actually experience an INCREASE in their tax bill, meaning in Sanders' terms, they'd have to chip in MORE after the price of booze was reduced while #10 pockets the extra cash.

Finally, Sanders' story speaks to a bigger issue: why did she feel the need to spin a yarn justifying large tax cuts to the richest 1% when President Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have both gone on record as saying that under their plan, #10 would pay the exact same amount for beers before and after the $20 price reduction. In other words, the richest 1% would experience no net benefit after tax reform is complete.

Perhaps that is in fact the case, the richest 1% will get no tax cut, and Sanders' performance yesterday will go down as a bigger waste of time than it already appears to have been.

Coming up at 3 will Sarah bake a pecan pie for April Fool or make her eat cake?
I'm banking on the latter.
