but there have been amendments to the amendment

2018-03-03 02:11:25 UTC  

and I don't know which version is being discussed at this time

2018-03-03 02:11:55 UTC  

Basically, Wxtransit, is reposting his amendment to satisfy each new request or point

2018-03-03 02:12:17 UTC  

though I can agree with all that's being added this might as well be a bill to end the bill that was just passed

2018-03-03 02:12:22 UTC  

I would say revised but I am going to treat the final offered text as a new amendment

2018-03-03 02:12:33 UTC  

different from the first one he offered

2018-03-03 02:12:52 UTC  

Exactly

2018-03-03 02:13:01 UTC  

Because once you load up the requirements, section 3 has to go

2018-03-03 02:13:09 UTC  

since you need the staff back to administer it

2018-03-03 02:14:01 UTC  

I also don't see why computer science is kept separate from "career course"

2018-03-03 02:14:28 UTC  

And knowing this Congress they will likely keep the grants, add back the staff and say who cares when it comes to deficit 😛

lol

2018-03-03 02:23:53 UTC  

remember Yankee: there's nothing wrong with debt

2018-03-03 02:26:04 UTC  

Lmao

2018-03-03 02:27:04 UTC  

You know the irony here is

2018-03-03 02:27:09 UTC  

our debt was much lower pre-reset

2018-03-03 02:27:18 UTC  

Because taxes were far figher, much earlier

2018-03-03 02:27:24 UTC  

It was about 12 Trillion

2018-03-03 02:27:36 UTC  

But taxes were ridiclous

2018-03-03 02:27:41 UTC  

60% top rate

2018-03-03 02:27:52 UTC  

and that was a moderate position

2018-03-03 02:28:05 UTC  

JCL was called extreme for pushing for 45%

2018-03-03 02:28:30 UTC  

like too low extreme?

2018-03-03 02:30:50 UTC  

yes

2018-03-03 02:31:01 UTC  

Of coruse TNF was pushing for 90%

2018-03-03 02:31:09 UTC  

lol

2018-03-03 02:31:16 UTC  

And it was set at 50% for a while

2018-03-03 02:31:30 UTC  

but sbane and I grudingly conceded to 60% because we care about debt

2018-03-03 02:31:48 UTC  

lol

2018-03-03 02:32:37 UTC  

I think only Maxwell voted no on that 60% rate

2018-03-03 02:32:40 UTC  

ironic now

2018-03-03 02:32:50 UTC  

lol

2018-03-03 02:33:12 UTC  

and now the top rate is 39.6%

2018-03-03 02:33:22 UTC  

same as RL yes

2018-03-03 02:33:45 UTC  

well RL 2016

2018-03-03 02:34:07 UTC  

i think the tax reform bill AZ sent me a while back proposed changing it to 50%

2018-03-03 02:34:14 UTC  

but I don't know whatever happened to that

2018-03-03 02:35:04 UTC

I wish he had given break downs for each line of text
