Thank goodness Schumer and Pelosi (they are for the "workers and little people" of this country, not big corporations and big pharma) pushed for and insisted on a better benefit package than McConnell and senate buddies wanted - thank goodness!

    This is great. Trump Hotels and Resorts gets to write off the entire downturn in business as "lost business opportunities" worth hundreds of millions of dollars and the company is also now eligible for millions of dollars in Federal disaster grants (i.e., they don't have to be repaid). That is what I call a stimulus bill.

    Senate Republicans snuck a tax code provision into the $2 trillion package that could be a “bonanza” for wealthy real estate investors—including the president and his son-in-law.

      Under the existing tax code, when real estate investors generate losses from gradually writing down the value of their properties, a process known as depreciation, they can use some of those losses to offset other taxes.

        The result is that people can enjoy big tax breaks stemming from only-on-paper losses, even if they enjoy big cash profits in the real world.

        But the use of those losses was limited by the 2017 tax-cut package. The losses could be used only to shelter the first $500,000 of a married couple’s nonbusiness income, such as capital gains from investments. Any leftover losses got rolled over to future years.

          The new stimulus bill lifts that restriction for three years — this year, and two retroactive years — a boon for couples with more than $500,000 in annual capital gains or income from sources other than their business. That group comprises the top 1 percent of taxpayers, according to Internal Revenue Service data.

Kushner really needed a break and gains
Posted on: 2020-03-27 11:36:11   By: Anonymous
 
real estate companies run by Kushner’s family likely won’t be bound by the same restrictions that the Trump Organization is, despite the First Son-in-Law’s governmental role.

    The government officials restriction singles out companies controlled by “the spouse, child, son-in-law or daughter-in-law” of elected officials and department heads, but only applies if the family member in question owns at least 20% of the company—which, sources cited by the Times assert, is more than Kushner’s stake in his family’s properties. And while the restriction on governmental leaders’ businesses prevents the Trump Organization from receiving assistance through a $500 billion fund set up through the Treasury Department, the president’s company could still likely take advantage of other provisions aimed at the hotel and restaurant industries.

    Trump himself has deflected questions about whether he could personally benefit from the bill, saying Sunday, “I just don’t know what the government assistance would be for what I have. I have hotels.”

From A Republican Perspective

This stimulus is needed, but what they hushed in was by all means no help to the poor Americans and Republicans alike. I don’t support wealthy tax breaks, it’s the poor that deserve the most aid.

It reminds me of the $300 check that the Bush sent...

    A. El-Erian, chief economic advisor at Allianz, told Politico. “There will definitely be a need for a phase four.” Whether Congress’s next moves to save the economy will also stand to line the president's pockets, however, remains to be seen.

    So when the sh** hits the fan as in 2007, the Republicans get religion- socialism.
    Yes socialism, bailouts are socialism. Conservatism as Hoover used after the 1929 crash only made the economy worse.
    FDR was elected on a socialism platform, he implemented socialistic principals and started a recovery.
    The same in 2007. The bailouts of the banks mainly was pure socialism to save the economy as much as possible until the recovery $ -4Trillions filtered into the economy.
    Socialism to the rescue. When the Republicans and their pals are against the wall, they applaud socialism, not more Conservatism.
    This exposes all the Conservatism arguments for the BS it is.
    What saves America? Socialism Again.

    The bail out $ must help the poor and middle class, unlike in 2007, when $Trillions was shoveled into the banks who caused the sub prime crises to begin with, the loss of Glass Stegal which was an economic firewall in place since 1930. Clinton threw it out with applause on both sides and in 8 years, the banks had crashed the economy as the predatory capitalists have so many times.

    The cure once again is socialism, watch the Republicans cheer it on.
    What hypocrites. Except the socialism is for the monied interests, not the people..

            And Trump was accused in 2011, 2014, 2016, and 2018 when he slapped NiKKKi Haley with his combover. Even porn stars accused Trump of sexual misconduct and that’s a tough orange to swallow.

            Let’s see what Epstein did....If we jailed Trump there’s not a makeshift noose that would support his weight, he’s to fat to hang himself in a makeshift way.
