#NJ While our POTUS waits for Dimms to come to the table to end this #shutdown and #FundTheWall, one of our Reps is in Puerto Rico doing what? Hustling h00kers? pfft
#PatriotsAwakened @POTUS
While our @POTUS waits for Dimms to come to the table to end this #shutdown and #FundTheWall, Liberal Dem Reps are in Puerto Rico doing what? Partying? Caring about American citizens?

It’s one thing that Dim leaders have blatantly gone to PR showing unwillingness to even think about the shut down, but they are spending it with 109 lobbyists. That's the real message here. How much do they really care about American Citizens?

1/If anyone is wondering why the #PayrollTax is needed in #JerseyCity to help fund @jcps_district schools, here's a thread. This is admittedly complicated & fraught w/ legacy & external issues (eg 2% cap) but ultimately public can/should engage & understand this LOCAL problem.
2/ I created a #NJ #PropertyTax dashboard to show property tax history for last 20 years in NJ. Here's the link: civicparent.org/2018/09/27/nj-…
Drill into #JerseyCity (w/in Hudson County). And you'll see tax base growth & also property tax levy growth for City, County, & BOE.
3/ Notice tax base growth of #JerseyCity from 1988 to 2017 (lower left chart). We have largest tax base in entire state in '17. On lower right, notice City property taxes (red line), which correlates somewhat w/ tax base growth (it's going up)...

⁉️WHAT⁉️

Public pension funds in #NJ and #OH used **HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS of taxpayer money** to bankroll a failing business: #AMI, the company that owns The National Enquirer.

Gee, this sounds kinda bad, doesn't it.🙄

AMI/The National Enquirer is not owned by @realdonaldtrump’s pal, David Pecker. It’s owned by Chatham Asset Management (hedge fund).🤨
Chatham & another Chatham co. manage **$500 million of #NJ state pension funds & $125 million of #OH state pension funds** and are raising new money/trying to refinance **$450 million in AMI debt**. Only w/Chatham’s support did Pecker keep control of AMI.

I feel like this is an episode of #RickandMorty, but we have to do a sequel to first #TwitterStorm now with 280 characters. I will be going through this #GOPRiot where they loot middle-America. So the thread begins here. 1/?
Not that the #GOP cares about #DACA or #undocumented families. But they use #SEC11022 to not allow undocumented parents to receive a tax credit for their children. These is cruel unjust and unAmerican. 2/?
#Sec11023 With the language to repeal the #JohnsonAmendment contained in the house amendment they have allowed an increase of cash contributions to #Charity as a means to funnel the money to #GOP candidates in a tax free fashion. This is not what Jesus would do or want. 3/\?
