More approve of Mueller than of Trump — CNN Poll

In his tweets, Trump has flatly and openly stated that the rule of law should not apply to Republican members of Congress who are under indictment because applying the law to them makes a Democratic takeover of the House (which means real accountability for Trump as well) more likely.

WASHINGTON-Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives plan to unveil another round of tax cuts this week, hoping to draw a sharp contrast between themselves and Democrats ahead of the November 6 congressional elections.

A Republican-led panel in the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to make permanent individual tax cuts from President Donald Trump's 2017 tax overhaul, a move widely seen as a partisan ploy to help Republican candidates in the November 6 congressional elections.

The SALT cap had made unveiling the Tax Reform 2.0 legislation a little complicated for Republicans.

Blunt wants to investigate Kavanaugh allegations
On Sunday, the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford , came forward with her allegations in an interview with The Washington Post . Kavanaugh has categorically denied the incident occurred, so logically, both he and Ford can not both be telling the truth.

Republicans gave Congress nearly a full decade to extend these individual tax cuts before they expire, but the law's mediocre polling numbers and the hard election outlook for House Republicans have increased their sense of urgency.

A dozen House Republicans opposed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act last December.

Trump previously had openly questioned whether the 2018 midterm elections, where Republicans stand to lose control of Congress, even mattered. All but one were from high-tax Democratic states such as New York, New Jersey and California. But that has been undercut on the campaign trail by worries about Trump's policy on trade tariffs and a lack of evidence that tax cuts have delivered promised pay increases to workers. Starting in 2026, the cuts could cost the federal government about $165 billion annually in today's dollars, according to projections by the Tax Foundation, a conservative-leaning think tank.

The bill includes several retirement-related provisions that would allow small businesses to more easily offer 401 (k) plans, as well as new individual savings accounts for education and newborns.

Canelo Alvarez defeats Gennady Golovkin for middleweight title
Golovkin's camp had ridiculed the Mexican fighter for backing away and opting for a strategic, defensive-minded approach. Initially, it was expected Golovkin and Alvarez would rematch on Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) earlier this year.

Prospects for the new tax legislation in the Senate are weak, given the slim Republican majority and concern over the potential for further blowing up the deficit with a new tax cut - without corresponding new revenue sources.

If that happens, it would be the first time since 2012 the USA economy would have to support such a large deficit, highlighting a basic shift for the Republican Party, which once prided itself on fiscal conservatism.

The new tax law enacted in December provides steep tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, and more modest reductions for middle- and low-income individuals and families.

The poll is CNN's first since the conviction of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on tax and bank fraud charges stemming from Mueller's investigation and guilty pleas from Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen on several charges after an investigation that Mueller had referred to the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY.
