Yesterday's #PresidentBiden press conference had very few questions on economy, so here is a synopsis on the #BuildBackBetter plan with a focus on #Infrastructure and possible #TaxReform as a way to pay for it
The Biden "Build Back Better” plan focuses on four main national challenges:
1. Infrastructure and Clean Energy
•Biden will make a $1.7 trillion accelerated investment, with a plan to deploy those resources over the first four years.
The plan will create millions of private sector jobs, and rebuild roads, bridges, water systems, battery charging stations, and electricity grids. This pillar also emphasizes access to clean air & water by providing zero-emissions public transportation to cities

This is the #DemPartyPlatform for 2020. This section is called: Leveling the Economic Playing Field & Reforming the Tax Code to Benefit Working Families Only one party has a specific plan for rebuilding the great American #MiddleClass and helping all #WorkingFamilies. 1/11
The U.S. economy is rigged against the American people. Time after time, President Trump and the Republicans have rewarded big corporations and their wealthy donors, and left working families behind. 2/11 #DemPartyPlatform #WorkingFamilies #EconomicJustice
#Democrats will take decisive action to level the playing field for people of color, working families, women, small business owners, and others who have been left on the sidelines.3/11 #DemPartyPlatform #EconomicJustice

It looks like my colleagues @WhipClyburn and @RonWyden are in backdoor negotiations to systematically destroy my #OpportunityZones initiative. Y'all know me and I'm going to be completely frank here — they're only doing this because it has the support of @realDonaldTrump.
This is the second misguided attempt by Congressional Democrats in the last two weeks to wreck the #OpportunityZone initiative under the guise of ‘improvement.’ Word on the street is that The Squad is coming after the program too in the next few days/weeks...
Some facts about #OpportunityZones for y'all:
✔️ An estimated $63 billion can already be expected to be invested into them
✔️ There are 8,700 Zones with the average poverty rate of 29%

It's easy to lay out numbers, but these are people's LIVES that we're talking about.

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote

Highlights now coming through via radio pooler @stevenportnoy of @POTUS remarks at #gridirondinner. He joked his staff was concerned he couldn’t do self deprecating humor. "I told them not to worry. Nobody does self deprecating humor better than I do."
On @VP: "I reallly am very proud to call him The Apprentice. But lately he’s showing a particularly keen interest in the news these days. He is asking has he been impeached yet? I don’t like that."
"Mike, you can’t be impeached when there’s no crime. I thought that was going to get a much better laugh. Melania said use it, it’s good."

Today Congress will pass the first comprehensive #TaxReform in a generation – a huge win for hardworking families across the country.
#TaxReformFacts – It will help the working and middle class by doubling the standard deduction, and allowing folks to write off their state and local taxes up to $10,000 #WinForFamilies
#TaxReformFacts – Repealing the individual mandate means removing a tax mainly placed on those making less than $50k a year. The bill will not take health care away from anyone, it will instead actually expand the medical expense deduction. #WinForFamilies

The previous one ran from Dec 8 to 18:

Info & links to 12 other photos threads since June 2017:… … …

Enjoy! RT to help #MAGA
(2) The President started the week with a landmark National Security Strategy speech in Washington, DC. #PeaceThroughStrength #AmericaFirst
(3) Oh noes! He held the glass with both hands again! Probably because he unconsciously worries about spilling some, like I do. We're neat freaks and germaphobes, stop judging us!😎

.@GOPSenFinance Tax Cuts and Jobs Act lowers taxes for middle income taxpayers & delivers better jobs, higher wages. It also makes American businesses globally competitive again: #TaxReform
@GOPSenFinance When workers have more capital-intensive equipment to work with, they tend to be more productive, and therefore, earn higher wages. The @GOPSenFinance #TaxReform legislation will make this happen:
@GOPSenFinance Non-partisan @jctgov confirms: The @GOPSenFinance Tax Cuts and Jobs Act makes no changes to health care programs. #TaxReform Image

Trump's admin has made life exceedingly difficult for people like me who are fighting #cancer & dealing with extreme medical costs.

Obama said in 2009 that he hated watching his mother forced to work to pay bills as she fought for her life.

Many of us are still doing this.
Now Trump wants to make yet another critic of #ACA--the only buffer sick & #disabled Americans have until we get #UHC--head of HHS.

#AlexAzar is an actual lobbyist for #BigPharma.
And cut his legal teeth--he's a lawyer--working for #KenStarr investigating the Clintons.
Anyone who thinks sick/#disabled people are going to get a fair shake under this presidency aren't thinking clearly. And while I know we have more Russia news and
more sexual abuse claims today, this appointment impacts EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN WHO IS NOT RICH and it's barely news.

AARP is ready to protect older Americans from any unfair proposals that would raise taxes or threaten their retirement security.  <THREAD>
We're pleased the House #TaxReform bill does not change 401(k)s and hinder hard-working Americans' ability to save for retirement.
However, we strongly oppose repealing the medical expense deduction. This change will impose a Health Tax on the oldest & sickest Americans.

1/ @GOP @SenateGOP @HouseGOP @SpeakerRyan @SenatorBurr @SenThomTillis @RepDavidRouzer I want to tell you briefly about my day today. I am a retired school teacher/counselor in NC and deliver meals-on-wheels on Tuesdays. I was listening to NPR as I drove...
2/ When I heard a clip of @SpeakerRyan talking about the president's tweets. Paraphrasing here, but in essence he was saying to just disregard those words. Yes, DISREGARD the words of the president of the United States! I could not believe my own ears! The speaker of the HOUSE!
3/ So, that is the new attitude in the CONGRESS of the United States of America now? Just ignore what the president says? He's a LIAR and we all know it yet you do NOTHING to stop him because you want to press for YOUR own agenda?

My office spoke with Pennsylvanians about why #TaxReform matters to them. I hope you'll hear what they had to say:
#TaxReform means "millions of companies just like ours could continue to reinvest." -Sean from Bristol
#TaxReform means "we could hire more people. Invest in our plant and equipment." - Bob from Malvern

(1) Team Trump photos thread started on 10/8/17 that will bear no resemblance to the chronological order of events of the last 2 weeks.
(2) I begin with a pic that paints a thousand words. Crooked, Commie Carmen Yulin Cruz has to acknowledge the President while others smirk.
(3) Carmen Yulin Cruz is the failed Mayor of San Juan who won't lift a finger to help #MakePuertoRicoGreatAgain, while millions will.

GOP tax plan actually raises taxes on millions of middle-class families by repealing the state and local tax deduction, a real Trump Tax.
44 million Americans all across the country take the state & local tax deduction (~1/3 of all taxpayers) & they get $1Ks off their taxes.
Don’t believe me? Just look at these numbers & think about what a #TrumpTax would mean:

Budget Cmte is diving into the Trump/GOP #TaxReform plan today & what we’ve seen is bad news for Virginia families…some of my big concerns:
1/ Tax cuts are for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class. 80% of the benefits could go to the top 1%.
2/ We were promised a “middle class miracle.” But from limited details they’ll share, looks like many in middle class could see increases.
