House Budget Chairman Signifies the Stupidity Governing Our Country

"I want to share with you a clip. This was recorded at a rotary club meeting back in September of 2021. This is the chairman of the House budget committee who seems to think that all you have to do if you need money is go to the Treasury Department and say we need money and they write a check and it's all okay because you know what? It's just monopoly money. Who cares, right? Watch. We don't have the balance of. We don't like the bank or the novel question. We created one of the channels on Monday everybody else plays the game. I'm laughing but I shouldn't laugh. I should really be crying, okay? That is the chair. The chairman of the House budget committee, saying we are like the banker in monopoly. We create the money, everybody else just plays the game with it. That is the level folks of stupidity, we have this representative from Kentucky, a Democrat who thinks he can print money. This is the stupidity that's governing our country. And this is the reason why you are paying more at the gas pumps than you'll continue to pay more. This is why it costs more to feed your family. We won't even get into the baby formula supply shortage, which is a total mess that should have been dealt with far earlier on. We have stupid people in Washington, D.C., that affect really big policies.

Rudy Giuliani: How Hunter Biden Hides Joe Biden's Money

"In that film, he gets her to sign all the documents. So he's okay. That's the role hunt just seems to play. He pays for everything. He does everything so that Biden can have deniability. And you have and you have in the hard drive, you've got evidence of it. You have a number of things, a number that he paid for. Things will be unusual for a son to pay for tuition for the daughter. So generally, you pay for tuition for your children. You don't have your other children pay for it. The house needs to be repainted. Their house, the Biden house, not his. He pays for that. So wait, hunter. Right. This makes no sense. So why are they doing this? He's just like a way of getting the bribe money to Joe. That way you're not going to find it. Number two, there's no tax consequence for it. Joe should have paid taxes on all this. And also, there's money there's half of his salary, right? Did Joe pay taxes on that? And this gets delivered through, I am told, through corporations. It's put into corporations. Also, the Ukrainian prosecutor who I trust the most because he's been on this for 5 years. They fired him hired him back, fired him, hired him back. Zelensky had him for a while. He's paid some gains with this too. This guy will tell you that he has two foreign bank accounts. He knows one of them is the bidens because they have money going there from burisma. They have a woman who they're hiding because she's been threatened with death. There's no doubt in his mind, now I'm expressing his mind, not me. This is a witness. He says there's a two farm bank accounts, and each time he's gone after them, our Treasury Department blocks it.

"treasury department" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW

"Let's come to BlockFi and the SEC. We gave extensive airtime to BlockFi challenges with the SEC at the end of last year. And specifically, it was around the practices around their high yield interest bearing accounts. So why might this have attracted attention? Well, on the one hand it wasn't some big hypey ICO, but on the other hand, you could see how a regulator would think that this product was more likely to attract regular old buyers, right? There were concerns about the opacity of what the investment activities were that were producing these promised yields, and of course in the crypto space there were more cynical takes on the fact that this type of interest bearing activity competes very favorably with the traditional banking activity of savings accounts, which currently offer almost nothing at all. In either case, on Friday Bloomberg reported that BlockFi will agree to a $100 million settlement with the SEC..

"For crypto. It was a seismic moment an inflection point for crypto lobbying and for just the crypto political apparatus in general, but it's still left us with the question of what the heck was going to happen with this provision specifically. Now, part of treasury's argument was always that of course they weren't going to do something stupid. They weren't going to try to make a group who didn't have access to a certain type of information, share that information or else render their activities illegal. That wasn't their goal, never was their goal. According to them. Mario man at the time was that that's not how we make laws. Even if we believe that this group will be good to its word and true to its promises to not interpret their definition of broker in such a way, we have to consider the next group of leaders who makes policy around it in the next group after that. But we lost, at least in those specific terms, so really all that was left was to see what treasury actually did in the rule making process. So to this letter, it reads existing regulations impose broker reporting obligations only on market participants engaged in business activities that provide them with access to information about sales of securities by taxpayers. Indeed, the letter goes on to basically say that it's broadly aligned with the senator's view, saying, they're consistent with the Treasury Department's view that ancillary parties who can not get access to information that is useful to the IRS are not intended to be captured by the reporting requirements for brokers. For example, persons who are just validating transactions through a consensus mechanism are not likely to know whether a transaction is part of a sale. And persons who are only selling storage devices use to hold private keys or persons who merely write software code are not carrying out broker activities. So what to make of this, while obviously this is an encouraging sign. It reiterates a key statement from treasury at that time, it's explicit about the types of groups they're trying to exclude, so at least they are not so far going back on what their promises at the time were. However, this is of course a long way from formal guidance. That process will include proposals, public comment, revisions, and repeat. So for now, we're just going to have to keep watching, but certainly it's starting.

All right, so there was a fairly large amount of news on Friday and over the weekend, and we're going to start with a headliner from the Treasury Department. In a letter dated February 11th, which was Friday, the treasury reassured 6 senators who had sounded the alarm that the treasury does not intend to treat crypto miners, stakers and wallet providers as brokers for tax purposes. The letter went to 6 senators Cynthia lummis, Mark Warner, rob Portman, Kristen sinema, pat toomey, and Mike crapo, who had shared concerns about the treasury's changing definition of broker in a communication to the Treasury Department. So the backstory of this, of course, starts last summer,.

"We have just reached a milestone. And it's not a good one. It's a story that our leaders in both political parties can take blame for. National debt tops $30 trillion. We have become a debtor nation that no longer cares about the amount of debt we are passing down from one generation to the other, but why would we care? It's the same moral dynamics that shuts down schools as it borrows money from kids or steals money from kids. The U.S. national debt is surpassed $30 trillion, according to the latest data, released by the Treasury Department, marking a new milestone as government spending and borrowing continues to surge. Reading from Fox business dot com. The new record is for government's total debt outstanding, which includes the $23.4 trillion debt held by the public and another $6.5 trillion in intergovernment duct debt such as China, owning a lot of our debt. Spending by Congress was already increasing at a steady clip for years before the virus sparked a borrowing surge of $5 trillion in pandemic relief that accelerated the rate. Totally unnecessary, by

GOP Senator Tim Scott Seeks to Block Controversial Proposed Bank Account Monitoring

"I saw senator Tim Scott make a little speech about this woman that the Biden administration once confirmed as a top ranking Treasury Department official. And he just seems like he's in a state of shock. The left is trying to defend this doomed nominee and she better be doomed. You can not have somebody in charge of the purse strings who wants to blow up the banking industry. And wants to nationalize wants to federalize banking. Yeah, that's just what I want. The government calling all the shots with my checking account. They're nuts. They're purposefully picking people who are who are so radical and bizarre. I mean, Sean wants you to hear a little bit. We have senator Tim Scott queued up, right? I want you, this is four minutes. Like, it's like four and a half minutes. I want you to hear the whole thing. Because she was also convicted of shoplifting 25 years ago. Now, you could make the case 25 years ago is a long time. Incidentally, that's funny how the left and the woke crowd and all the crazed activists on social media don't seem to mind if it's 25 years ago if it's something they don't approve of. Then you better cancel somebody over what they did 25 years ago. But when it's a Biden nominee to do something like, oh, I don't know. Control the purse strings of America's monetary system well, that was a long time ago she should be forgiven. In fact, they say, those are personal attacks. You're attacking her. I mean, I don't even know what she's Asian, right? I don't even know what her ethnicity is. She appears to be Asian. I'm sure there's the left is ramping up all their bigotry defenses for her, right? All these mean Republicans don't like her because she's Asian. They're bigots. They're just they're just racists and bigots. No, she's a radical kook who has no business, no business whatsoever in a responsible position of authority at the Treasury Department. So keep all that in mind. Bear in mind that she shoplifted a couple decades ago, so people are mocking her for that. There's the racist thing. There's the same, you're getting personal with her. These are personal attacks. Don't do personal texts. So listen to this reasoned, eloquent, short of every man approach that U.S. senator Tim Scott from South Carolina takes in addressing Biden's nominee. I want to be fair, and I will be fair. I won't be hyperbolic, but I will be Frank and honest. I can not think of a nominee more poorly suited to be the control of the currency based solely on your public positions, statements, and the weight of your writings. Than you are. Let me just quote you versus anybody else. On the Green New Deal champion, you propose taking economic and climate policy making from Congress and creating an unaccountable bureaucracy called the national investment authority. In a round table this year, this year, you push to make the NIA the dedicated institutional platform at the federal level for really being the kind of fighting muscle of the Green New Deal and fighting muscle of you know all of these other movements that pursuing environmental justice, social equality and so on. You're disdain for the financial services industry. In 2019 in the documentary, titled, I'll be kind, buttholes, a theory. You said the financial services industry in my view and I don't think I'm alone here is the quintessential butthole

"I'm mitchell hartman for marketplace. This is a busy month in washington as we've talked about a couple of times. I think deadlines on the debt limit and government funding and congress grinding away on that big infrastructure bill and the human infrastructure agenda to push that last bit along. The treasury department is out of the new study today about childcare saying the american childcare system is basically a market failure with significant ramifications for the rest of this economy. Marketplace's kimberly adams has that one just about any parent who's been on a waiting list for daycare or a childcare center has experienced firsthand the economics of the childcare industry i think it was in a state of market failure before the pandemic and i think it's the state of market crisis now. Gina adams a senior fellow at the urban institute and parent herself has studied this for years and experienced it. The market failure is that we count on parents to pay for the bulk of the cost of childcare yet to provide good quality care costs far more than many parents can afford a typical family with a child under five pays thirteen percent of their income on child care according to katherine wolfram acting assistant secretary for economic policy at treasury. She wrote the new report and says for many. That cost is a stretch. Childcare comes at this time in life when your earnings are low and and you can't borrow against the future and so kind of described that as a liquidity constraint a constraint that keeps the demand for care high but when parents can't pay more programs have no choice but to keep wages low or to not provide the kinds of quality. Care that we know is good for children. Hannah matthews is with the center for law and social policy and during the pandemic it became very clear. They struggle to stay afloat. We saw tens of thousands of providers closed their doors exacerbating childcare shortage. Many economists warn keeps people especially women from working or returning to work in washington. I'm kimberly adams for marketplace on wall street today equities were up bonds. We'll tell you when we get there. We'll have the details when we do. The numbers. Mitchell was talking to import prices a couple of minutes ago bouncing around month month as he said up nine percent year on your part of which are the astronomical prices being paid for shipping as companies bid for that.

"Us tonight. Coming up next week could be make or break. We for president biden and chuck schumer's very ambitious to track plan on the infrastructure. That's next today. The senate jumped over the next procedural hurdle to move forward with. The considerate with consideration of the bipartisan infrastructure. Package senators voted sixty six at twenty eight on emotion to pursue proceed vote. That will open up the package to potential changes through the amendment process. It remains to be seen whether there will be any amendments because the final text of the bill hasn't been released majority leader schumer believes amendment. Votes could happen this weekend. Keeping the chamber on track to pass the deal before the august recess. The senate remains on track to reach our goal of passing both bipartisan infrastructure. Bill and a budget resolution with reconciliation instructions before the start of the august recess. It's ambitious deadline. Absolutely but the hard work put in by senators and staff means that we are on the right track to get it done given the partisan of the bill. The senate should be able to process this legislation rather quickly. We may need the weekend. We may vote on several amendments but with the cooperation of our republican colleagues. I believe we can finish the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill in a matter of days joining us now. si hell kapoor national political reporter for nbc news. Okay so when will we actually see the text of this. Bipartisan package a jonathan. At the good question and as of two hours ago i was told by an aide involved in writing this that it could be done as early as tonight now. The night is running out of moments. Left if i looked at the clock so i suspect it's not going to be done tonight but the hope is that it's done tomorrow and at some point this weekend they can begin this process. Hopefully up or stay on chuck schumer scheduled for democrats. Wrap it up by early next week and get the budget resolution done that. Three point five trillion dollars Vehicle before they had home for the august recess. Okay so you. And i both know capitol hill and we certainly know how Senate minority leader. Mitch mcconnell operates you embed snarlin have written a piece. What's in it for for mcconnell. Because he has a blown up. So what's in it for mcconnell. It's a question. A lot of people on capitol hill are asking. Jonathan force. Senate republican leader. Mitch mcconnell is best. Known for denying bipartisan. Victories to democratic president is self style himself. The grim reaper progressive legislation. He appears to be going along with the top priority of president biden. So why is that. There are a couple of reasons. According to many conversations. I've had with his top allies. And even some of predicts the first is that many republicans in his senate caucus want this bill they are invested in that includes retiring members like rob portman who is in legacy mode thinking about how he'll be remembered includes people like lisa murkowski who came to washington to do things and not just obstruct things. Mcconnell is not omnipotent. he's got to give them what they want. Sometimes otherwise his own position could be jeopardized. The second reason is that mcconnell is eager to preserve the filibuster in there to moderate democrats. Are joe manchin and cares in cinema. Who are strong supporters of the filibuster. They happen to be authors of this. Bipartisan bill allowing the surpass would give them the talking point they need to go to progressive. Say see the senate actually works. We don't have to Nuke the sixty vote threshold that and the fact that infrastructure as popular there's little opposition to it and former president trump's mrs trying to blow up this deal have according to one republican senator. I spoke to almost zero impact on the caucus. So there's this little downside for mcconnell to allow the sapin and the lesson minute that we have left so hill. Can you tell me explain. Why senator chris juiston cinema. Kristen cinema is threatening to scuttle the three point. Five trillion dollar reconciliation bill. What's up with that cinema. Has said she opposes the three and a half trillion dollar price tag. She did not say why she did not identify policies specifically that she opposes because there aren't policies in this bill. It's currently i just kind of a concept. So that's her position. Three and a half trillion is too much in theory. Three point four trillion be viable for her. So she's not necessarily trying to blow it up altogether that said the fact is a progressives you three and a half trillion has compromises thought. They wanted six ten trillion and some progressives i spoke to including a giant the the In the house and alexandria of cortez of new york are not happy with the fact that she is objecting to three and a half trillion. Ao see accused cinema trying to nuke this entire process including infrastructure deal including that reconciliation. Which by the way are tied together in the house. These have to come up around the same time in order for speaker pelosi to consider either because the progressives have threatened to blow up the bipartisan deal unless they get as other priorities jonathan and how speaking villas he has made it clear. She wants him both together. Nbc's sahil kapur. Thank you very much. That is tonight's last word. I'm jonathan kaye part. You can catch me tomorrow on a special edition of the sunday show here on.

"Joyce i'm gonna put a tweet of yours from today and then have you expound further you write you wrote the fact that doj turned these notes over to the house oversight committee the type of internal product. They typically fight to protect suggests that they believe this is very serious potentially potentially even criminal conduct talk further about that so doj typically will hold close any of its internal work product particularly notes that a senior official might take during a phone call. That's not something. Doj turns over without a fight but in this case they've made a bold statement indicating that they believe the events here are important and this information is so critical that they're going to permit former trump administration. Folks to give unrestricted testimony. I take that to mean that. They're not going to exert any kind of executive privilege and also they're turning over the physical documents this means. This is serious stuff whether it's criminal or not requires additional investigation but certainly that investigation is merited enjoys it. Is this information relevant to what's happening down. In georgia in the investigation the fulton county criminal probe into that phone call in which trump tried to pressure the georgia secretary of state referenced. Burger too. I think is fine me. Ten thousand seven hundred eighty votes. Jonathan the interplay between these two events is pretty interesting and let me talk about one way that it might be significant. Prosecutors worry a lot about proving defendants intent was he just sort of bumbling in saying stuff or was there actually a cohesive plan to overturn the results of a legitimate election. And something that makes it more likely that it was intentional rather than an accident or stumbling is if there's evidence of a repeated course of conduct in actually admissible evidence that you can put in say georgia were to indict. Prosecutors could very likely offer evidence of other similar related courses of conduct like this pressure that trump tried to bring to bear on the justice department to show that it wasn't a mistake unintentional but rather there was an intentional effort to subvert the election in georgia congressman swallow. Well considering you've been an impeachment manager and devised questions to ask witnesses. What kinds of questions should investigators be asking. Now we're at this point. It really trying to understand what donald trump and those around him new as to. Who was going to show up on january six mo brooks who you referenced earlier. He admitted this week that he was wearing body armor when he gave inciting remarks just outside of the white house. So what did he know that led him to wear body armor. What donald trump no about who was showing up and then of course what decisions that you make to protect the capital. What decisions that he not make. That could have protected the capital. I think that will be incredibly helpful for us as we try and ensure that we again have a peaceful transition of power in this country. One that we did not have an twenty twenty one transition as we go into the next presidential election comes. Swallow one more question to you. I think you alluded to this earlier. But how concerned are you that we really. We dodged a bullet in twenty twenty in that we had responsible people who were being pressured by the president of the united states members of his own party. Who did not bend to his will and did not subvert the constitution of the united states. How concerned are you that that kind of withstand withstanding pressure won't hold in two thousand twenty two. The midterm elections. Jonathan is is. I and my colleagues were running from the floor through an evacuation route. That the thought going through my mind was it can't end this way that this cannot be how democracy dies and i thought that's what was going to happen on january six and i would say at best it's on life support right now because nothing has changed. Donald trump is telling people. He's coming back in august mark meadows. Set some pretty disturbing things today about a cabinet meeting. They had plans. They have that they're going to announce soon i mean he's still assembling a shadow cabinet It sounds like and we still don't have the security posture at the capital. That we need to make sure that we could protect you. Know a future coup attempt. And so i am very very concerned in the best thing to knock late against. That would be the unity of republicans and democrats really really debunking. The big lie acknowledging. Joe biden is president and then putting in place laws so that this won't happen again otherwise again. We're just we're close to flat line right now for our democracy and on that note.

I guess we're going to be doing is warning. Yes right well. Thanks very much alley. Have a good evening it. thanks a lot al. it's about damn time. That's how congressman. Bill pascrell a member of the house ways and means committee described justice department's announcement that the treasury department must turn over six years of donald trump's tax returns to house investigators on the committee the committee. I made the request eight hundred forty nine days ago. The bill bar justice department which basically operated as the donald trump justice department blocked trump's returns from being released despite the fact that the law is absolutely clear that the treasury department xiao turn over any tax document requested by a tax writing committee in the congress. Today merrick garland justice department. Says that the committee's request to see the records is lawful valid and should be fulfilled quote applying the proper degree of deference. Do the committee. We believe that there is ample basis to conclude that it's june twenty twenty one requests for former president trump's tax information would further the committee's principle stated objective of assessing the irs presidential audit program a cleanly legitimate area for congressional inquiry and possible legislation ways and means chairman. Richard neal said this about the decision. As i have maintained for years. The committee's case is very strong in the law is on our side. I am glad the department of justice agrees and that we can move forward and then there's this from house speaker. Nancy pelosi who called the decision. A victory for congressional oversight powers quote access to former president. Trump's tax return is a matter of national security. The american people deserve to know the facts of his troubling conflicts of interest an undermining of our security and democracy as president leading off our discussion. Tonight is congressman. Lloyd doggett of texas. He has the second highest ranking democrat on the house ways and means committee. Doug thank you very much for being here. The immediate question for you is this. When do you get donald. Trump's tax returns not yet but this was an important step in getting Jonathan and it is important to remember how we got to this point today. Donald trump the lied about the his willingness to disclose his tax returns. As the public outcry over that began to intensify. He presented us in the committee a letter a letter from his law firm that there was nothing to look at not noting that that same law firm was named the russia author of the year for years for months at least a the house. Republicans on our committee covered up for him. I made six motions other colleagues made motions. They refused to use a law that grew out of another republican scandal. Almost one hundred years ago. The same law that figured in richard nixon saying i'm not Over his tax deductions and the the law is clear. It requires that the treasury secretary or the irs commissioner of who's been delegated that responsibility shall deliver returns when their request. And what we've had now for much than years is an unwillingness to comply with that very clear law on now that we have this decision It's really question of just. What mr trump's next tactic is to try to hide the evidence that i think will show his tax evasion up congressman target on this this question of the handing over the returns when they are requested. Here's something from the doj decision where it says. The june twenty twenty one request seeks the same categories of information as the april twenty nineteen requests. But it covers each of the tax years twenty fifteen to twenty twenty whereas the april twenty nine thousand nine requests asked for tax information for tax years two thousand thirteen through twenty eighteen. My question to you is why the change in years requested. Why is that significant. Well i think it was just an updating of the prior request to bring it up to date actually thinks the request and we provided for this in the for the people act should cover ten years But the main point is that the committee has crafted a narrow legislative request and not as to be able to ensure that the audit that president trump kept using excuse is being conducted properly and not the result of his manipulation or intimidation of the internal revenue service. So chairman neil has used that as the reason for getting these returns he also in this updated request he filed in june mentions the very real possibility of foreign entanglements. We know the saudi money. The russian money that appeared to pour into some of mr trump's sub accounts and effect on legislation in congress that relates to taxes. So we have a good basis for getting it. It just a question now. With a court case pending of whether trump comes up with yet more excuses perhaps files on the junction. Try to block. What will eventually nap when this clearer. Law is implemented but which he is determined to delay as long as possible. I don't believe any president has ever tried so hard to hide so much. There is much as stake here. It's really important that we get to separation once we have it. That's not a guarantee that remains public in fact it would be a criminal offense if i were to disclose that information prematurely. It will be a matter of our committee looking at the documents in private. I'm sure they'll be a substantial amount of him and determining in a report whether any of this should be made public after we see what's there and how soon would that be well. It.

So where things stand on a new China trade deal? We've learned the Trump administration is considering eliminating tariffs on Chinese imports to help grease the skids toward a trade deal ahead of more talks in two weeks. Washington Post global reporter, David Lynch spoke with komo's Rick van Cise. So full confession David this is getting very hard for some of us to follow police. Connect all the dots on the latest strategy. And what you're hearing. There's a lot of ideas floating around, and it can be difficult to know, which ones to take entirely seriously. What's important to know is that there's a big negotiation or a resumption of the negotiations coming at the end of this month when Leo who's one of Chinese president, Xi Jinping's? Closest aides is expected to lead a delegation to Washington for two days of talks. In advance of that the administration is having a series of meetings trying to sort out what their approach to those talks won't be the treasury department, which is typically more focused on the potential downside risks to the economy, and to the financial markets of the trade dispute is advancing proposals. That the hawks in the administration reject how the hand is too soft. And so what you're seeing at the moment is sort of to negotiations. There's the US China negotiation, and then there's the internal negotiation within the Trump administration to figure out exactly what to do with these talks. Okay. No. As this back and forth continues internally the word gets out. And does this put the US in a disadvantage is a tries to negotiate a trade deal with China. No. I wouldn't say a disadvantage. I mean, the Chinese had difficulty. Figuring out the Trump administration two years now. And I think they in Beijing were slow to wreck. Is that the president intended to take a much different approach to the relationship than his predecessors have? But what you're seeing this week between the story we reported. The story of the Wall Street Journal broke yesterday on this treasury department proposal, and then another leak today from the hawks no doubt in the administration pushing back on this trying to make the case that while look China has put forward a proposal that would eliminate the trade deficit the bilateral trade deficit in five years now, nobody really takes that proposal entirely seriously. He is the math just doesn't add up. One more quick follow up, and that is important to our tech community here. David and is intellectual property protection. Still part of all these discussions. It's an important part two halves to the talk. So the the simplest part which would address the president's desire to reduce that bilateral trade deficit, which is now about three hundred seventy five billion dollars a year. Just in our China trade would involve stepped up purchases by the Chinese of American products. Farm products, liquefied natural gas, you name it. That's the easy part. The harder part is what are known as the structural issues where the US is demanding the China change, some very fundamental elements of its economic bottle one of which has been a very cavalier attitude toward intellectual property.
