I have made the followng uggestions in letters to representatives Paul Tonko (D) and Chris Gibson(R) whom I hve had several dscussions with over the past 2 years.

Both of these congressman have expressed interest i my previou sugetion to eliminate the earnings social secnurity tax as a means to preserve the SS trus fund.

Inasmuch as entitlement programs are an issue in the current

discussions aking place in washington.  I have clarified my suggestion that this could be ossable solution to the dispute over increasing income tax rates on taxpayers earninbg mor thn $150,000.  The eliminationof the earnings capin SS tax would not be increasing icome tasx rates but would require those more affluent workers to continue to contribute to the SS program throughout their working life which would have the effect of leveling the playing field with those middle class workers who make SS tax contribtions on every dollar of their working life.  In as much as the employers matching tax contribution is a deductable business expense which reduces the income subject to income tax, the removal of that earnings tax this may be somewhat counter productive, I have suggested that the employers share be capped at $250,000 while the employees sharewould be continued throughout their working life.  This would not be a new tax or inincrease in tax, itwould imply put be an extensionof the emplolyees tax .

Both Political Party's express a concern for the middle class txpayer losing some of the tax credits inclded in the "Bush Tax" some sensible relief could be provided to the retired citizens through the taxcing of Social Security benifits recieved using a tax threshold of $20,000/$32,000 of total income and which I determined to increase their tax liablity b 45% to 52% by recomputing thier tax liability without the Social security income being taxed My srudy was for Taxpayers in a $20,000-$85.000 income range. My saggestion would be to raise the tax earnings thresholds to $225,000-$250,000 which sould satisfy the democrat standard amount.

I have also been suggesting to my 2 Represantives a change in the Corporate foriegn tax credit which allowas international operatioins to decuct all foriegn taxes pad from their U S Income tax  While only allowing taxes paid to states

and localities in this country t5 be treated as ordinary expenses reducing the taxable income.  Inasmuch as I contend that these taxes paid to foriegn countries is an inentive for U S Corporations to move production facilities overseas  These companys can also avoid import tariffs by shipping partially completed back to the U S.  I feel tyhat this is providing other country's with an unfair competive advantage

I would therefor encourage te party members to communicate with their mrmbers of congress an make specific suggestions when ever those suggestions mak sense to you.

I have also found that your congrssmen and congresswomen are mor receptive to constituants suggestions than senators as many senators are enamored of their own importance and are less inclined to see the common sense of your suggestions unless your suggestions are accompanied with a large campaign contbution.

“You’d Go To Jail For Contempt”FBI Refuses Order To Produce McCabe Communications

Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter reports that the FBI refuses to produce outgoing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s communications in response to “a government watchdog group that has filed a lawsuit on behalf of a former senior FBI special agent.”

Carter reports:

The communications in question are related to McCabe’s wife’s unsuccessful run for Virginia State senate and might also contain invaluable information on McCabe’s role in the Bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server used to send classified information, several former FBI sources and a government official told this reporter.

In January, Judicial Watch, a formidable conservative watchdog group based in Washington D.C., filed a lawsuit against the FBI for the communications on behalf of retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent Jeff Danik. Danik spent more than 28 years with the bureau as a supervisor in the counter-terrorism division and special overseas advisor. Danik filed his original Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in October 2016 for McCabe’s communications.

“They have not produced not one text of McCabe, not one,” said Danik, referencing the bureau. “The government is out of control and it’s astonishing. Do you know what would happen if the government subpoenaed you for information and you didn’t produce records that you had in your possession? You’d go to jail for contempt.”

Carter recently told Fox News host Sean Hannity that Justice Department Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, is investigating whether or not McCabe asked bureau agents to “change their 302s.”

A day after the New York Times reported FBI Director Christopher Wray confronted McCabe over unspecified findings in DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, the Washington Post reveals the embattled bureau official is being probed over his role in examining emails found on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

That’s not all.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino has hinted to his nearly 320,000-strong Twitter followers that the next bombshell to drop could involve McCabe’s mishandling of classified information.

“Here’s the next shoe to drop -> was Andy McCabe using secure comms to send/receive classified information? Someone should check on that,” tweeted Bongino.

McCabe stepped down January 29th, as first reported by NBC News.

McCabe, who served a brief stint as acting director of the bureau, was already expected to leave. He will stay on “terminal leave” until he is eligible to retire with benefits in March,” reports CNBC.
