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.

Trump & Clinton, Part 1 – The Good/Bad/Ugly of Sacrifice [A Nerdfighter’s Treatise]
 
11:12
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.

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/

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.

Why Territorial Taxation for Individuals (TTFI) needs to be part of tax reform
 
22:29
Help end citizenship-based taxation! Sign the petition here: ttfi.info During last weeks meetings at the White House, Solomon Yue (RO Vice Chairman & CEO) and Michael DeSombre (RO Worldwide President) delivered the already signed petitions and letters to the White House and to select members of Congress. Keith accompanied them to certain key meetings in Congress. While it went well...your support is still needed! During the meetings, a strategy was discussed for having TTFI included in the Tax Reform Bill. While the White House is supportive of the efforts to get TTFI included, only Congress makes laws. We have the opportunity to petition Congress and truly make a difference. So, if White House support is there, what, or who, are we up against? Where is the pushback coming from? First, US financial investors because they're selling financial products to non-US persons, and they have an advantage...invest in the US and avoid taxes! But why should a foreigner get a better tax treatment than a US person? We've learned in the past that powerful lobbies can squelch laws that will take money out of their pockets. Second, the Tax Compliance industry. There. We said it. While this may be the industry we're in, we have to agree that many other companies like the laws the way they are because it drums up business. But, as Attorney Parent exclaimed, "But that means they're putting their interest before the best interest of their clients!". If TTFI is passed, there will still be plenty of opportunities to help our clients in other, more meaningful ways. Instead of having to constantly fight the US tax code, we could use it to our advantage to help our clients benefit, and flourish. Average Americans may be wondering how this affects them – wouldn’t this only affect Americans living overseas? How does this affect all Americans? It's true that many people very unexpectedly end up living overseas. It could be for work...or love...or any other reason. For homeland Americans, TTFI would help US Industries overseas, and this helps everyone. It would create more capital and more opportunity. The petition campaign will run through Sunday, 22 October. The team fighting for TTFI will be back on Capitol Hill on 23 to 25 October to deliver the petitions and lobby Congress. Please sign the petition, then share it with family and friends! It takes only seconds to fill out. We all have the opportunity to make the changes we so desperately want. http://ttfi.info The petition campaign will run through Sunday, October 22nd. The team will be back on Capitol Hill on October 23rd to 25th to deliver the petitions and lobby Congress.

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.

Trump Administration Brags About Repealing Laws That Don’t Even Exist
 
03:19
According to the Trump Administration, they have repealed nearly 1,000 rules and regulations so far this year. The only problem with this claim is that it isn’t true at all. Most of the regulations that the administration halted were proposed rules that never stood a chance of passage, while others were rules that were expiring anyway. The Trump administration is desperate to claim credit for something – ANYTHING – and so they have resorted to just lying about it, like they do everything else. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://shareblue.com/white-house-brags-about-repealing-834-fake-regulations/ Ring of Fire needs your help!

Well as we approach the end of this year, and basically come to Donald Trump's full 11th month in office in the coming days, let's look back at what Donald Trump has accomplished in his first year as president. Well, that was easy, it's pretty much nothing. But according to the Trump administration he has repealed nearly 1,000 different job killing regulations and rules that were put in place by previous administrations. Donald Trump, he may not have any legislative accomplishments to his name as of right now, but he's been repealing regulations, undoing the work of past presidents non stop since he came into office. According to the White House, almost 1,000 regulations gone. Not exactly though. According to new reports, all of these regulations that the Trump administration is bragging about destroying, most of them, more than 800 of the alleged 1,000 never existed to begin with. See, here's what Donald Trump is actually taking credit for. A lot of regulations that get put in place by agencies here in the United States have an expiration date. At that point the regulation can then be re-looked at, re-vamped, re-tooled, or just simply re-instated. Or nothing can be done and it goes away because time's expired. That's what happened with most of them. Some of the others, a good third of them I think, actually never got put in place to begin with. They were simply proposed rules that everyone already admitted had absolutely no chance of passing. According to the Brookings Institute, only 12 active regulations had been killed by Donald Trump this year. The White House wants you to think that they've repealed 1,000 regulations, but the real number, according to reports, is closer to a dozen. Now even just repealing one of these regulations is going to be bad for the American people, because some of the ones that they're going after are environmental regulations that protect our air and our water and our earth. Our quality of life, our ability to go outside and take a deep breath and not inhale a bunch of pollutants. Those are the things that the administration's getting rid of. Not off benefits to the middle class, not because it's going to create jobs, not because it's going to help the economy, it's going to actually do the opposite, it's going to harm the economy. They're doing it because it helps their corporate interest. It helps businesses. They're not going to parlay that savings from not having to comply with regulations into hiring more people, they're going to distribute it amongst shareholders, because that's what corporations always do. But the bottom line is this, as 2017 draws to a close, Donald Trump has done virtually nothing as president of the United States. And the few things that he has actually accomplished are among the most horrible we've ever seen from a president during their first year.

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.

A Remarkable Push-Back to Donald Trump
 
01:41
Could Donald Trump’s presidency—his divisive rhetoric and unpredictable actions—paradoxically revive U.S. democracy by making Americans more civically and politically engaged? E.J. Dionne—a prominent liberal pundit who is both a nationally syndicated columnist for The Washington Post and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution—thinks so. Dionne expressed his reasons for optimism about the push-back against Trump when he took part in a Zócalo/Daniel K. Inouye Institute “Pau Hana” panel discussion titled “Will the Trump Administration Renew American Democracy?” at Artistry Honolulu in downtown Honolulu. He was joined by Colleen Wakako Hanabusa, the Democratic U.S. representative for Hawaii’s 1st congressional district, and a candidate for governor of the Aloha State, and moderator Bill Dorman, news director of Hawai’i Public Radio.

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"?

Ryan Medicare Reform Plan Suffers Blow

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.

Donald Trump and His Tribute to Susan Rice
 
01:52
President Donald Trump sings a tribute to Susan Rice. Susan Rice is a U.S. public servant who was formerly a U.S. diplomat, Brookings Institution fellow, and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She served on the staff of the National Security Council and as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs during Clinton's second term. She was confirmed as UN ambassador by the U.S. Senate on January 22, 2009. Rice was mentioned as a possible replacement for retiring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but the ongoing controversy related to the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi caused her to withdraw her name from consideration. Rice is noted for a series of blatant lies:(1) claiming numerous times that the attack on the consulate at Benghazi was caused by extremists reacting violently to an obscure video, (2) proudly stating that deserter Bowe Bergdahl served the army with "honor and distinction", (3) asserting incorrectly that all chemical weapons had been removed from Syria, (4) denying any knowledge of surveillance of candidate Donald Trump and then a week later (5) admitting that she directed the surveillance of Trump while claiming that it was not done for political reasons. Liar for Hire, Susan Rice was written and sung by Jesse Goldberg whose website is http//www.JesseGoldberg.com

VOA news for Tuesday, December 6th, 2016
 
06:00
VOA news for Tuesday, December 6th, 2016 Thanks to http://gandalf.ddo.jp/ for audio and text From Washington, this is VOA news. I'm David DeForest reporting. Norbert Hofer has lost his bid to become the first Austrian leader from the political right since World War II. Hofer has conceded the election to independent Alexander Van Der Bellen. Van Der Bellen told his supporters that they comply with a movement. "The first time in history, I think an enormously broad electoral movement has taken place. Young people, old people, people from all income classes, all society classes. An electoral movement beyond all party lines. You know people that they engaged not because we told them, they did by themselves." :Alexander Van Der Bellen. Italian Premier Matteo Renzi says he is resigning after voters Sunday turned down a constitutional change that would have cut Italy's bureaucracy and made the country more competitive. He conceded defeat after exit polls showed his proposal losing by a margin of about 60 percent to 40 percent. His opponents were hoping to tap into the populist anti-European Union sentiment that has been gaining ground in Europe. The remains of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro were buried in eastern Cuba early Sunday morning. The ceremony in Santiago de Cuba was made private at the last minute. The Syrian government army has ordered rebels in Aleppo to leave the city or face death. But the rebels say they will not leave even though their top commander has been wounded. Meanwhile, pro-government forces attacked neighboring areas in Idlib province, killing a number of people. Aleppo shook throughout the day as fighters loyal to the government of President Bashar al-Assad attacked opposition communities to the east of the city, capturing a number of them. This is VOA news. Remarks by the U.S. secretary of state on Sunday are being quickly interpreted by the Israeli media as harsh criticism and undiplomatic. John Kerry told generally pro-Israel audience at the Brookings Institution's annual Saban Forum in Washington that Israel is heading to what he called a "place of danger" because of its policies toward the Palestinians. "I do believe that Israel, because of decisions that are being made on a daily basis quietly and without a lot of people seeing them or fully processing the consequences, is heading to a place of danger.” Kerry characterized the long-stalled peace process as moving in the wrong direction. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied an easement for the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline project. The project has been the subject of months of protest by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which contends the project would affect its drinking water supply and destroy sites it considers sacred. Sarah Krakoff is an Indian law expert at the University of Colorado: "All the tribes would be affected if ???anything happened to the Missouri, if there was a leak or spill, and then the other issue or that the pipeline construction has gone across land that were ancestral land or are an ancestral land or the Sioux and other tribes of the former Great Dakota nation.” In a statement Sunday, the Corps of Engineers said it would be undertaking an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternative routes for the project. Donald Trump's transition team is downplaying the significance of the president-elect's telephone conversation with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan. No U.S. president or president-elect has had such a discussion with a Taiwanese leader since the late 1970s when the U.S. recognized the mainland's "one China" policy that regards self-ruling Taiwan as one of its provinces. Vice President-elect Mike Pence spoke Sunday on ABC's This Week program: "I think I would just say to our counterparts in China that this was a moment of courtesy." :Vice President-elect Mike Pence. Meanwhile, Trump has widened his search for a secretary of state after high-profile meetings with four top candidates failed to yield a decision last week. Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told reporters in New York Sunday that the president-elect has "a very full slate of meetings" set to begin on Monday to fill the remaining cabinet positions. From the VOA news center in Washington, I'm David DeForest. That's the latest world news from VOA.

GOP Tax Plan Would Apparently Cost $2.4 Trillion
 
01:08
"The GOP's tax plan would cause revenue to drop between $2.4 trillion and $2.5 trillion over the course of a decade, even after economic growth is taken into account, according to an analysis from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center. The Tax Policy Center's initial September analysis of the plan drew fire from some conservatives for not including the effects of economic growth on revenues. The updated report found almost no difference with growth effects, called dynamic scoring. "The outline would reduce federal tax revenue by roughly $2.4 [trillion] over the next decade, nearly the same as under conventional scoring," the Tax Policy Center's Howard Gleckman wrote in a blog post on the matter. In the second decade, the center added, revenues would fall by $3.4 trillion. "While the Framework's tax rate cuts would generate new economic activity at first, those growth effects would be washed out in a few years by the effects of higher budget deficits. Because the federal government would have to borrow more to finance the tax cuts, less money would be available for private investment," Gleckman wrote. The Trump administration has argued that economic growth stimulated by the tax breaks would bring in enough revenue to cover most-to-all of the revenue lost by the tax cuts. On Thursday, the GOP adopted a budget that would allow up to $1.5 trillion in deficit-financed tax cuts. The party is struggling to find a way offset nearly $4 trillion in additional revenue losses incurred by their proposed cuts. Earlier Friday, the White House Council of Economic Advisers released an analysis that said GDP would grow between 3-5 percent as a result of the tax plan."

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.
