From Facist Cantwell In Wa State - Please note one comment in partiicalar We need to be able to raise revenues to fund the government people want,

Dear Ms. Robinson,


Thank you for sending me your suggestions for reforms to our nation's tax code.  I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.


As a member of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee, which oversees all tax policy legislation, I know what an important role the tax code plays in our economy. Along with being a powerful tool in driving economic decisions, the code has a tremendous impact on the lives of Washington state residents.  My seat on the committee allows me to play a central role in formulating legislation to produce a fair and workable tax system. 


I believe we can best meet this goal by working together and inviting solutions from inside and outside government.  I value hearing from the people of Washington state, because it enables me to learn about your concerns and the problems you are facing.  The innovation and breadth of the suggestions that are sent to me by Washington state residents is impressive. I will work with my staff to evaluate your thoughtful proposal.


It is important for policymakers to strike a balance.  We need to be able to raise revenues to fund the government people want, but we also need a tax code grounded in clear policy principles that is fair and that supports productive investments to create U.S. jobs, encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, and restores our leadership in the global marketplace.  In crafting a new code, we also have to make sure we look at the ways our tax laws will affect family budgets.


The tax code, with all its special rules and provisions that often work at cross purposes, has gotten too complex even for sophisticated taxpayers – and for the average family or small business, it is a nightmare. I share the frustrations of average taxpayers who believe the rules work against them.  Everyone has to contribute their fair share, but fairness means that all taxpayers must be equally able to navigate the complexity of the code.  Along with leveling the playing field, we have to make sure taxes don't cripple our working families and businesses.


I am committed to working with my colleagues in the Senate and with the administration to undertake fair and sensible reform of the tax code.  Please be assured that I will keep your comments in mind as I work on these important issues.


Again, I appreciate the opportunity to hear your ideas. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance.

United States Senator

CONFUSION:   Pelosi Says Constitution Spells Out ‘Two Co-Equal Branches’ Of Government

No Nancy. No.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be taking night classes at the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez School of Government.

Pelosi, the 79-year-old third-highest ranking official in the U.S. government, was speaking to the Center for American Progress today when she mistakenly said there are “two co-equal branches” of government, before correcting herself to say there are three.


“First of all, let me just say, we take an oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“Democrats take that oath seriously, and we are committed to honoring our oath of office. I’m not sure that our Republican colleagues share that commitment, and I’m not sure that the president of the United States does, too,” she claimed.

“So, in light of the fact that the beauty of the Constitution is a system of checks and balances— two co-equal branches— three co-equal branches of government,” she corrected with a laugh.

“A check and balance on each other,” she continued. “Con— Constitution spells out the pri— pa, uh, the duties of Congress and one of them is oversight of the president of the United States, another one of them is to impeach the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.

In November, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rallied supporters on Facebook to pitch in and help Democrats take back “all three chambers of Congress.”

“…the Progressive movement works and it wins in all districts…If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress– three chambers of government…,” she said during the virtual appearance.

She clarified that she meant the “presidency, the Senate and the House.”

According to the Constitution, the three branches of government are the legislative, executive and judicial.
