Dale Schultz, a Republican, served in the Wisconsin Legislature for more than 30 years, from 1983 to 2015. His Senate district is located in south Wisconsin, much of it rural farmland. Schultz was considered a moderate, and so much of what happened in state politics near the end of his tenure dismayed him: partisan fights over…
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is attacking several swing-district Democrats for failing to overturn a policy Republicans implemented back in 2017.
In a tweet posted on Wednesday afternoon, the NRCC claimed that Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Tom Malinkowski (D-NJ), Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) and Andy Kim (D-NJ) "failed at restoring the SALT deduction," referring to a federal tax deduction for state and local taxes that was primarily beneficial to people who live in Democratic-voting states that have higher taxes.
"They can't accomplish anything for hardworking New Jerseyans," the NRCC added.
The problem with this line of attack, however, is that it was Republicans who put a cap on the SALT deduction as part of their 2017 tax cut package. In fact, former President Donald Trump openly gloated about the fact that implementing the SALT cap hurt his former home state of New York, where some residents wound up paying more in taxes due to the policy.
As NBC News reporter Sahil Kapur notes, it's unusual for the House Republican campaign arm to slam Democrats for "not (yet) repealing a part of the Trump/GOP tax law."
Whistleblower says he hasn’t been contacted by Jan. 6 committee despite ‘explosive report’ on the Capitol Police
A Capitol Police whistleblower came forward saying that he witnessed senior leaders in the department standing motionless watching the attack unfold on television instead of rushing to help their officers. At the time, Congress said that it would be reaching out to add that to their investigation.
According to Politico, however, the whistleblower still hasn't been contacted by the Jan. 6 House Select Committee probing the incident, those who participated in the organization and what led to the violence.
"He said the police force deserves more attention from the select committee than it's gotten so far, and added that he would talk to investigators if they reach out," said the report, not citing the former high-ranking department official.
The House is currently attempting to enforce subpoenas for key players in former President Donald Trump's circle. The committee voted Tuesday to pass criminal contempt of Congress charges onto the full House for a vote.
MIAMI — In the rubble of one of the deadliest building failures in modern history, Hussain Sajwani sees opportunity — a prime beachfront property that could become home to the billionaire Middle East developer’s first project on American soil. Sajwani, a friend and business partner of Donald Trump known for flashy towers in his native Dubai, has visions of erecting an ultra-luxury condo building in Surfside where Champlain Towers South once stood, a spokesman for his company, DAMAC Properties, confirmed Tuesday. His $120 million bid for the land, one of several competing offers expected to com...
