By ALAN RAPPEPORTMarch 26, 2017 Trump’s inability to make good on his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act has made the already daunting challenge of tax reform even more difficult. Trump might go for this to get an easy win. Trump during the presidential campaign. If Republicans intend to act again without the help of Democrats, they will need to use a procedure called budget reconciliation to have the Senate pass tax legislation with a simple majority. Eliminating the $1 trillion of Affordable Care Act taxes and the federal spending associated with that law would have made this easier. Trump’s agenda. “I think there’s a lot of flexibility in terms of some of my contacts and conservatives in terms of not making it totally offset,” he said. Ryan’s lead and lost, making it more likely that the White House will try to steer the direction of tax legislation. Graetz, a tax law professor at Columbia University. Trump and Mr. Ryan and Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, have been aggressively pitching a reform blueprint that includes a “border adjustment tax.” It would be a 20 percent tax on imports that, by making imports more expensive, would spur domestic production, they say. Brady said on Sunday that getting rid of the contentious border tax provision would have “severe consequences” and that he hoped to produce a bill based on the House plan this spring that would be passed later this year. Brady’s tax-writing…T: Technology
Library directors are growing increasingly confident about the directions in which they are moving their organizations, a new study found, but the rest of the campus may not have gotten the memo. The Ithaka S+R Library Survey 2016, released this morning, builds on findings from the 2013 edition. It shows many library directors are becoming comfortable with the idea that the library may no longer be the starting point for research, and that they are forging ahead with plans to further boost libraries’ ability to support students and faculty members with their teaching, learning and research. Those plans are facing some resistance. Many faculty members value that the library acquires and stores the books and journals they need for their scholarship and want them to keep doing so while also expanding their services. Compared to the last survey, conducted in 2013, fewer library directors now say they agree with their direct supervisor about the direction in which to take the library. And insufficient funding continues to place constraints on library directors’ ability to make change.B: Philosophy
Last month I chatted via phone with a couple of national religion reporters who were trying to make sense of evangelical support (81%) for Donald Trump. These reporters had been reading things, mostly from progressive sources, that connected Trump evangelicals to the Alt-Right movement, Dominionism, and other forms of Christian nationalism. These reporters had been reading things, mostly from progressive sources, that connected Trump evangelicals to the Alt-Right movement, Dominionism, and other forms of Christian nationalism. Our conversations took place right around the time that the Senate was vetting Betsy DeVos, Trump’s Secretary of Education. They did not seem to capture the lives and views of the evangelicals that they had been encountering in their fieldwork. I would place Sarah Posner’s recent article at the website of the New Republic among the progressive writing that these reporters were referencing. As a result, the religious right—which for decades has grounded its political appeal in moral “values” such as “life” and “family” and “religious freedom”—has effectively become a subsidiary of the alt-right, yoked to Trump’s white nationalist agenda. I don’t dispute the fact that Moral Majority founder Paul Weyrich told Balmer that the Bob Jones segregation case (Green v. But if one takes a longer look at the rise of the Religious Right, one is hard-pressed to say that race was the only, even primary, factor in its founding.

Shares of Tesla Motors Corp. (TSLA - Free Report) closed more than 3.8% lower on Wednesday after a group of investors urged the company to add new independent directors to its board that do not have any prior ties to Elon Musk. Shares of Tesla Motors Corp. Elon Musk served on the SolarCity board for several years before Tesla purchased the solar energy company last year. Will announce soon, but this group has nothing to do with it. According to Autolist.com’s data, used Model S cars tend to sell about 5% faster than their peer group average. Tesla has shown remarkable growth over the past several years, and the company consistently delivers quality cars.
