    It's like they are not even hiding their scams anymore

    Trump Tax Bill Exempts Just One College From Endowment Tax. It's Owned By Betsy DeVos




    Democratic Senators just voted to strike an amendment from the Republican tax bill that would have given a tax exemption exclusively to a small conservative college in southern Michigan owned by education secretary Betsy DeVos.

    Republicans have slipped into the tax bill a provision sponsored by Sens. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that would exempt Hillsdale College, as it is the only education institution that meets the criteria detailed in bill’s add-on. The exemption was related to a proposed 1.4% excise tax for endowment investments, The Guardian reports.

    Senate Democrats hammered Toomey on Friday night over the proposed amendment, arguing it would specifically benefit the conservative college in Michigan.

    “It feels like this is a very limited provision written for a very special person,” Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said on the Senate floor.

    Toomey defended the provision, saying it would broadly apply to schools that don’t take federal funds.

    “My view is, if a college chooses to forgo federal money and the students that attend have to find their own way to get in, it is diminishing the burden that that college would otherwise impose on the taxpayers,” he said. “And so it’s perfectly reasonable in my view to exempt such a college from the tax on endowments that we’re applying generally.”
    The hits keep piling on their complete scam of a tax bill.

    Lots of give-aways to get the votes.

    Wasn't the first time, won't be the last time.

    And, yes, BOTH sides do it.

    President Obama does not own the college and no one in his administration owns the college getting the tax exemption. Do you want to address the issue in the thread or what?

    This is clearly a pay for play deal. She got a seat in the cabinet and her family is a big donor now they are getting the only tax exemption for colleges in a bill the GOP is passing. I bet her brother was the contact between him and Russia on that island too. A bunch of crocked traitors the whole gang of Trumps.

    Why do you even bother? No facts at all support that. At all. Obama had 8 years of republicans trying, desperately for any scandal, and failed. No scandals at all. Just a bunch of fake pathetic shit, even being so pathetic as questioning where he was born.

    2009-current, yes you are right. It's pronounced "AdministrationS" though. Since it's two combined.
