During the 2016 elections, presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have proposed changes to the US federal tax system. The Penn Wharton Budget Model and the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center have collaborated to analyze how the proposed changes of each candidate would affect the economy and the federal budget, using a new dynamic economic model that employs big data, cloud computing and visualization. Two experts will discuss each proposal and the sensitivity of estimates to the key assumptions.

Study: Romney Tax Plan Favors The Rich
 
05:53
"Mitt Romney's plan to overhaul the tax code would produce cuts for the richest 5 percent of Americans — and bigger bills for everybody else, according to an independent analysis set for release Wednesday. The study was conducted by researchers at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, a joint project of the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, who seem to bend over backward to be fair to the Republican presidential candidate. To cover the cost of his plan — which would reduce tax rates by 20 percent, repeal the estate tax and eliminate taxes on investment income for middle-class taxpayers — the researchers assume that Romney would go after breaks for the richest taxpayers first...".* Cenk Uygur and Ben Mankiewicz discuss on The Young Turks. *Read more here from Lori Montgomery in The Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/study-romney-tax-plan-would-result-in-cuts-for-rich-higher-burden-for-others/2012/08/01/gJQAbeCCOX_story.html Support The Young Turks by Subscribing http://bit.ly/TYTonYouTube Like Us on Facebook: Follow Us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/theyoungturks Buy TYT Merch: http://theyoungturks.spreadshirt.com/

Think Tank Admits YUGE Error In Bernie Sanders Report
 
05:27
Earlier in the primary, The Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) published a wildly inaccurate report against Bernie Sanders. Now that most of the primary votes have been cast, they’re suddenly realizing they've made a big mistake. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "All but the wealthiest households would see net income gains under Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’s proposals, according to a report released Monday. “For most households, additional government benefits would more than offset the tax increases,” the non-partisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) said in the report. Sanders has released a number of proposals to expand and create new social-insurance programs. These include single-payer healthcare, comprehensive coverage for long-term services and supports, expanding Social Security benefits, free college tuition at public universities and paid family leave. The candidate has proposed paying for these programs through tax changes for individuals and businesses. TPC in March estimated that Sanders’s tax plan would raise $15.3 trillion over 10 years. Everyone would pay more taxes under his plan, and most of the new revenue would come from the wealthy. The Sanders campaign complained that TPC’s tax analysis was “inaccurate and one-sided” because it did not look at the benefits people would receive from the candidate’s spending proposals. TPC Director Len Burman told reporters that the center “thought the Sanders campaign had a point.” The center’s latest analysis looks at who wins and who loses once Sanders’s new government benefits are taken into account as well. TPC found that the average tax burden would increase by about $9,000 in 2017 but the average amount of benefits would increase by more than $13,000. As a result, households would on average receive a net income gain of almost $4,300 under Sanders’s proposals, TPC said.”* Read more here: http://thehill.com/policy/finance/279201-study-most-would-see-net-benefits-from-sanderss-proposals Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Now that Doug Elmendorf is no longer Director of the Congressional Budget Office, he’s speaking his mind. As part of the “Doug Elmendorf Unleashed” series, he says tax reform can boost economic growth, but that policymakers should be realistic about how much growth is possible from even a strong, pro-growth tax reform effort.

How the President Can End Pot Prohibition Without Congress
 
05:49
After President Obama admitted last year that he doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, he was pressed to reconcile this view with the federal war on weed. Why won’t he once and for all declassify marijuana as a controlled substance? The president’s response, and that of his attorney general, is that it’s a job for Congress. But that’s not true, says Brookings Institution Senior Fellow John Hudak. According to a report authored by Hudak and Grace Wallack, the federal Controlled Substances Act clearly details a process by which the administration can take marijuana out of the drug schedules or, at the least, lower its schedule so that medical research can proceed. To the feds, marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance, considered the most dangerous of the five classes of drugs. Schedule 1 drugs are defined as having a “high potential for abuse,” and are the only controlled substances the feds claim have “no currently accepted medical use.” That's why marijuana is treated the same as heroin, and why it's even more restricted than meth. Since California became the first state to legalize in 1996, many more states are waking up to the benefits of ending pot prohibition. Twenty-three states and the nation’s capital have already legalized medical marijuana, while Pennsylvania enacted a law to do so just last week and at least a dozen more states are considering following suit this year. Four states allow recreational use, and over 80 percent now permit some form of medical cannabis extract. These reforms mean that patients with diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s can get life-changing treatments, violent drug cartels are being starved, and state and local governments have a new revenue source to make good on their unfunded liabilities. So why does federal law still matter if states are legalizing left and right? Because it means federal agencies still can—and have—ignored state sovereignty by raiding legal facilities on a whim. They deny cannabis businesses access to loans and bank accounts, and, perhaps most perniciously, federal regulations prevent most scientists from studying marijuana’s medical benefits. In fact, the feds say marijuana has to remain in Schedule 1 because there aren’t FDA-style clinical studies supporting its medical value. Yet such clinical studies are exactly what the feds prohibit by keeping marijuana in Schedule 1. Even with this catch-22, there’s already abundant evidence of marijuana’s medical value from other types of studies—just ask the Surgeon General. Or the Department of Health and Human Services, which owns a patent on the chemical components of marijuana. Or the FDA itself, which has approved and allowed the rescheduling of cannabis-based medicine. Or the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which has suggested we need to reconsider marijuana as a medicine and allow more research. The most recent petition to reschedule marijuana was filed with the attorney general in 2011, and—half a decade later—is still pending. Only four such petitions have been considered since 1972, and one took over 20 years to adjudicate. The DEA claims it will complete its review of the current petition by June, but this history shouldn’t encourage marijuana reformers to hold their breath. The clock is ticking on the Obama administration. Absent further congressional action, will the president finally find the political will to end federal pot prohibition? Or will he leave it to a future Congress or POTUS? 5:48 minutes. Written and Produced by Justin Monticello. Camera by Joshua Swain. Additional footage by Mitch Martinez.

Cruz tax plan would slash U.S. revenue, favor wealthy: analysis
 
02:36
A tax plan proposed by Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz would cut federal revenues by $8.6 trillion over 10 years, adding substantially to the debt, according to an analysis published on Tuesday by a nonpartisan research center. Cruz's plan, unveiled in November, would create a flat 10 percent individual income tax that with other changes would mainly benefit high-income households, the study by the Washington-based Tax Policy Center found. Other changes include repealing the corporate income tax, as well as payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare, and estate and gift taxes; increasing the standard deduction and eliminating most other deductions except for mortgage interest and charity; and adding a broad-based 16 percent value-added consumption tax. "The plan would cut taxes at most income levels, although the highest-income households would benefit the most and the poor the least," the Tax Policy Center said. The value-added tax proposed by Cruz, a Senator from Texas who won the Iowa caucuses among Republicans last month, would replace only 70 percent of the costs of the tax cuts, according to the center. Cruz is a favorite of the conservative Tea Party movement who helped provoke a 16-day government shutdown in September 2013 with his opposition to a spending bill. The goal was to gut the healthcare law known as Obamacare. The TPC analysis noted that high-income taxpayers would see an average tax cut in 2017 of about $6,100 or some 8.5 percent of after-tax income, while those with annual incomes over $3.7 million would see an average cut of nearly 29 percent, or more than $2 million. "Households in the middle of the income distribution would receive an average tax cut of $1,800, or 3.2 percent of after-tax income, while taxpayers in the lowest quintile would receive an average tax cut of $46, or 0.4 percent of after-tax income," the TPC said. The changes would "boost incentives to work, save and invest," but the lower revenue would require unprecedented cuts in government spending to avoid borrowing that would raise interest rates and discourage private investment, it said. The Tax Policy Center is a joint venture of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, two Washington-based think tanks. It has issued studies of other candidates' proposals.

A report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is expected next week, and experts at the Brookings Institute—who have performed their own analysis of the bill—predicted it will bear bad news for Republicans.

Former CIA Director: Sean Hannity Is A ‘True Propagandist’
 
05:00
Former CIA Director Michael Hayden is accusing Fox host Sean Hannity of being a propagandist. He’s right for all the wrong reasons. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/join "Michael Hayden, the former director of the NSA and the CIA, said in a statement Sunday that Fox’s Sean Hannity, one of Trump’s most ardent and vocal media supporters, behaved like a “true propagandist.” In a statement to Brookings Institute senior fellow Benjamin Wittes, Hayden, a retired Air Force general, wrote that “Hannity has entered the pantheon of a true propagandist.” He added that the Fox host’s “behavior reminds me of a conversation I had with a political office in the mid-1980s when I was the air attaché to Bulgaria. I asked this officer what truth was to him. He responded without hesitation, ‘Truth is what serves the party.'” Hayden’s remarks were in direct response to Hannity’s praising WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. It was a drastic shift for the Fox host, who was hostile to Assange and WikiLeaks for years. His sudden about-face comes after the organization began making disclosures intended to damage Clinton’s campaign, specifically steadily releasing emails stolen from the private email account of Clinton’s campaign chair John Podesta. Hayden noted that, save for a few personalities — such as Chris Wallace, who moderated the final debate, Bret Baier, and Megyn Kelly— “FOXNews has almost completely jumped the shark.” “They have given up any semblance of conservatism and focused on an almost visceral hatred of all things Clinton and Obama.””* Read more here: http://www.mediaite.com/online/former-cia-director-under-w-bush-labels-hannity-true-propagandist/ Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Rhetoric vs. Reality: China, Entrepreneurial Capitalism & the Turbo Tax Defense
 
28:03
Follow us @ http://twitter.com/laurenlyster http://twitter.com/coveringdelta China has made a move to increase the trading flexibility of the yuan. It's reportedly one of the government's strongest moves yet to show the yuan is ready to become a global currency. It also gives banks a new pitch for bonds and other yuan-denominated investments. Though China's currency has been slowly appreciating in value for over half a decade and that move has accelerated over the past 18 months, we hear plenty of hawkish rhetoric towards China's currency policy from politicians including frontrunner for Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney, who says he would name China a currency manipulator if elected. We talk about what developments like this really mean for business, the US and China trade-and-currency song and dance, and the global economy. We interview Barbara Hackman Franklin, former US Secretary of Commerce (1992-1993) who led a mission to China in 1992 to normalize commercial relations. She's now President/CEO of international consulting firm Barbara Franklin Enterprises, where she's an adviser to American companies doing business in international markets including China. She's also the subject of a new book: "A Matter of Simple Justice: The Untold Story of Barbara Hackman Franklin and a Few Good Women." Hackman separates business reality from domestic political rhetoric. Speaking of the world economy, it "remains on life support" from central banks. That's one conclusion from the latest Brookings Institution-Financial Times tracking index reportedly. So as central banks like the Federal Reserve continue to prop up the big banks, what's the cost to true entrepreneurial capitalism in the US? We talk about the impact of corporate welfare, Too Big to Fail Banks, and the JOBS Act on small businesses, entrepreneurial investment, and innovation. We speak again to Barbara Hackman Franklin, who is an expert in corporate governance and has served on the board of directors of fourteen public companies. And remember when US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner got into trouble at his confirmation hearing a few years back for failing to pay some of his taxes? It came out that he used the software Turbo Tax to file his returns. He used the "Turbo Tax defense" and he saw the IRS waive his fines! So with three-quarters of individual US tax returns expected to be filed electronically this year, shouldn't average Americans have protection from some kind of Turbo Tax defense against penalties, too? We talk about that, along with the bull market in targeted drone killings and the new Dutch banker oath, in Loose Change. We're joined by special guest Alyona Minkovski, host of RT's The Alyona Show.

Why Are Barack Obama's College Records Still Unreleased?
 
08:07
From Snopes.com - "Barack Obama's student records from Occidental College remain unreleased. He has not chosen to make them public, nor has any court ordered the school to release them." (http://www.snopes.com/POLITICS/OBAMA/birthers/occidental.asp) In the wake of demands for candidates tax returns and personal history for the sake of "vetting", the most powerful man in the world has never released his college transcripts despite repeated requests. WHY? But decades after Mr. Obama completed his own college course work, his academic performance is still a mystery. Before and after his election as president, Mr. Obama has refused to release his college transcripts from his days as an undergraduate and a law school student. Most presidents’ academic records are made public by the time they reach the highest office in the land, either with their consent or by someone else digging them up. “There’s no reason why people shouldn’t know,” said Stephen Hess, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who focuses on the presidency. “At this point, it’s pretty moot — perhaps amusing if it turned out that he didn’t do very well.” But whenever Team Obama is asked about the president’s college performance, officials dodge the question, obviously with Mr. Obama’s blessing. The years-long secrecy about Mr. Obama’s college records has led to accusations that he is trying to hide something — for example, grades that might have justified neither his transfer to Columbia University in 1981 from Occidental College, a small school in Los Angeles where he was on a scholarship, nor his acceptance into Harvard Law School in 1988. Mr. Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1991.

Trump & Clinton, Part 1 – The Good/Bad/Ugly of Sacrifice [A Nerdfighter’s Treatise]

PLEASE SHARE! This is the first in a two-part factual and philosophical analysis of 2016 Presidential Candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, from the perspective of what the candidates have sacrificed by campaigning. In the process, I touch upon a useful example in the Black Lives Matter movement. The next video will expand on what voters will sacrifice in order to support each candidate. I hope these videos get seen before the election. I’ve done a substantial amount of information gathering in order to present what I believe to be an oft-overlooked perspective on the current political situation in the United States. It is far from comprehensive, but I tried to be thorough. I try to be fair, though my words may be potent at times; they come from a place of observing the facts and making sense of human behavior. As a sociologist, I stand by my analysis; as an informed voter, I stand by my opinions. My eternal thanks to John and Hank Green, AKA The Vlogbrothers, for their inspiration.

Ryan Medicare Reform Plan Suffers Blow
 
06:02
Via The Huffington Post: "The co-creator of the concept that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is relying upon to reform Medicare no longer thinks it will work. Henry Aaron, now of the Brookings Institution, got the chance to tell Ryan exactly why at a recent Capitol Hill hearing. Aaron and former Urban Institute president Robert Reischauer came up with the idea of "premium support" in 1995, after the failure of then-First Lady Hillary Clinton's bid to reform the health care system. The basic idea is simple: let people pick their health insurers in the private market, subsidize the premiums, and competition will drive down costs...".* Cenk Uygur and Richard Eskow (Campaign For America's Future) discuss on The Young Turks. *Read more here from Michael McAuliff: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/03/henry-aaron-paul-ryan-medicare_n_1466826.html Read more about U.S. healthcare spending: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0512/75851.html Subscribe to The Young Turks: http://bit.ly/eWuu5i The Largest Online New Show in the World.

Will Repeal and Replace really fix any of Obamacare's problems?
 
12:00
Republicans just released their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. But does that plan really improve access to high quality and affordable healthcare for all Americans? Drawing on research from the Brookings Institution, Andrew takes a closer look at how Obamacare has faired since it was first implemented in 2014. In the vide, Andrew relays four major takeaways from the Brookings research: that healthcare is local, that Obamacare insurance markets are struggling because insurance providers underestimated the number of sick people who would seek coverage, that doctor choice is narrowing, and that hospital competition is a key factor in bringing down insurance costs for average Americans. Looking ahead, Andrew wonders whether the Republican repeal and replace plan will take these issues into account. Known as the American Healthcare Reform Act, will the Republican repeal and replace plan offer meaningful reform to Preisdent Obama's Affordable Care Act? Or, will it leave most of the nuts and bolts of Obamacare in place, cherry picking politically significant policies to change and then rebranding whatever results "Trumpcare"?

Follow Me on Social Media Facebook.com/Bulletb1983 https://twitter.com/BulletB1983 PSN: Bulletb1983 By MICHAEL VIRTANEN, Associated Press WELCH, W.Va. (AP) — Following a Town Hall meeting in one of West Virginia's poorest counties U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that the Senate can defeat the House Republican proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act with a version he said would provide enormous tax breaks to the wealthiest Americans. The former Democratic presidential candidate from Vermont received a standing ovation immediately from about 250 people in a high school auditorium in McDowell County, and his call for universal health care as a right for all Americans was greeted with loud applause. The Republican proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, which added health care coverage to 20 million people, would throw five to 10 million people off coverage including thousands of West Virginians, Sanders said. At the same time, it would provide an estimated $275 billion in tax breaks for the wealthiest 2 percent of Americans over a decade, he said.

Who Are The Democrats Supporting The President's TPP Plan?
 
01:32
The Democrats opposing President Obama's plan for the Trans-Pacific Partnership have garnered a lot of attention, unlike the Democrats supporting him. Follow Sebastian Martinez: http://www.twitter.com/sebastiansings See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: A lot has been made of the congressional Democrats opposed to the president's push for "fast-track" authority on his Trans-Pacific Partnership. They're informally led by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who's raised a number of concerns, from granting the president too much power to the impact on American workers. Warren asked: "Who will benefit from the TPP? American workers, consumers, small business, tax-payers, or the biggest multinational corporations in the world?" (Video via Office of Sen. Elizabeth Warren) But there are Democrats who back the president's plan. The president has said he's got 20 of them in the House. (Video via The White House) The Hill made its own list and counted 15, but it's hard to tell exactly how many he would need to get fast-track authority through the House because Republicans are split on it, too. And the House is where it counts now because Senate Democrats, Warren aside, agreed on a deal to move it through that chamber last month. (Video via C-SPAN) Arguably the most important Democrat in the House, Minority Whip Nancy Pelosi, has criticized the bill in the past, though a writer for Politico argues she's part of a complicated political game. (Video via Democratic Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives) "The White House hopes Pelosi's going to put her thumb on the backs of however many necks she needs, forcing yes votes among the more reluctant but safe members, letting the more endangered members off the hook," said a writer for Politico. The House Democrats who've vocally supported the president's plan are relative unknowns — like Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson of Texas, who's argued, "A free-trade agreement would only help our economy." But even they have expressed concerns, especially about transparency in the process, with many arguing fast-track authority would inherently deny public access to the deal. (Video via Brookings Institution) The House GOP is expected to push for a vote on fast-track authority as soon as possible.

Far-Right Bannon Site Breitbart ATTACKS House Republicans & Paul Ryan For "Obamacare Lite" TRUMPCARE
 
06:31
Far-Right Bannon Site Breitbart ATTACKS House Republicans & Paul Ryan For "Obamacare Lite" TRUMPCARE Stephen Bannon's former site Breitbart has been attacking the house republicans for their "obamacare lite" trumpcare bill as they stated it. Breitbart News is upping its attack on House Republicans’ healthcare proposal. Breitbart News is upping its attack on House Republicans’ healthcare proposal. Breitbart been far from supportive of the Affordable Care Act, which the GOP is seeking to repeal and replace. But its coverage of the GOP's proposal – the American Health Care Act that Trump has supported – has remained largely critical. On Saturday, the outlet published several stories blasting the GOP plan, citing various Republicans in headlines referring to the healthcare plan as "ObamaCare 2.0," "RINO-Care" and "a perverse economic system." The outlet also touted an interview with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), who ripped the House GOP proposal while arguing that Trump "will step in and fix it." Breitbart has long offered critical coverage of Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who presented a PowerPoint presentation this week pitching the GOP plan that was carried live by television networks. During Trump’s presidential campaign, the website ran an aggressive 2,800-word story accusing Ryan of backing then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and saying the GOP leader “leads the pro-Islamic migration wing of the Republican party.” The site was closely tied to Trump’s campaign and White House chief strategist Steve Bannon previously served as Breitbart’s executive chair. Breitbart has maintained a fiercely anti-Ryan stance, focusing on his support for the GOP legislation. A Breitbart story published Saturday highlighted a report from the left-leaning Brookings Institution, which claimed that House Republicans’ healthcare bill would cost millions of Americans coverage. The Brookings assessment found that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) will likely estimate that 15 million Americans will lose healthcare under the Republicans’ measure. Breitbart’s story also cited the nonprofit Kaiser Family Foundation’s assertion that the bill’s proposed tax credits – intended to encourage people to purchase insurance on the open market – would disproportionately benefit wealthy Americans. The site was among a number of conservative media organizations that panned the GOP proposal early this week, publishing an article titled, "Obamacare 2.0 Guts Enforcement, Gives Illegal Aliens Health Care Through Identity Fraud." The website published another story on Thursday slamming Ryan's alleged use of an outside group tied to House leadership to "browbeat" fellow Republicans into support the healthcare measure with a series of advertisements. That article cited anonymous House Republicans suggesting rumblings of a coup against Ryan's speakership. On Friday, Breitbart published another story titled, "7 Reasons Why Obamacare 2.0 Is All But Guaranteed to Impose Crushing Costs on Voters, Hurt Trump’s Base, And Hand Power Back to the Democrats." Ryan has made an effort to sell the House GOP plan while a number of conservatives and rank-and-file Republicans have been quick to reject the healthcare proposal this week, arguing that it does not go far enough to dismantle ObamaCare. Democrats and some Republicans have also been critical of the GOP pushing forward with the proposal without a score from the CBO. The CBO is expected to soon release its analysis of the plan, measuring its cost and how many people would lose insurance if passed. GOP congressional leaders and the White House have sought to downplay the looming report. Former House Freedom Caucus Chairman Jim Jordan says he does not support Ryan’s American Health Care Act. He said, “This is Obamacare by a different form. They’re still keeping the taxes in place and Medicaid expansion, and they’re starting a new entitlement.” Although many conservatives chided the Obamacare package, it is unclear whether Republicans will vote for it. -- Connect With The Host! - BECOME A MEMBER: https://www.patreon.com/theprogressivevoice - LIKE MY NEW FACEBOOK PAGE https://www.facebook.com/The-Progressive-Voice-144803039365734/ - CHECK OUT MY ARTICLES: http://progressivearmy.com/2017/01/14/donald-trump-celebrates-martin-luther-king-jr-weekend-attacking-civil-rights-legend-john-lewis/ http://progressivearmy.com/2017/01/14/deception-and-lies-by-trump-that-will-cost-the-american-people/ http://progressivearmy.com/2017/01/21/historic-womens-march-reaches-more-than-four-million-around-the-world/ http://progressivearmy.com/2017/01/18/obama-right-thing-commutes-mannings-sentences/ - SUBSCRIBE TO THE PROGRESSIVE VOICE: https://www.youtube.com/c/theprogressivevoice - FOLLOW THE PROGRESSIVE VOICE ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/progressvoice - GO TO THE NEW WEBSITE FOR ALL ACCESS http://www.progressivevoicenews.com/

Sep 9 -- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke about the Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday at the Brookings Institution in Washington. Acknowledging that the deal is not perfect, the former secretary of state invoked Ronald Reagan’s call to “trust but verify.” Clinton said, “It’s not enough to just say yes to this deal. Of course it isn’t. We have to say 'yes, and.' Yes, and we will enforce it with vigor and vigilance.” --Subscribe to Bloomberg on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/Bloomberg Bloomberg Television offers extensive coverage and analysis of international business news and stories of global importance.
