Trump tax cut unlocks billions for a GOP election blitz

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/politics/tax-cuts-republicans-donors.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

WASHINGTON — Republicans are struggling to make the $1.5 trillion Trump tax cuts a winning issue with voters in the midterm congressional elections, but the cuts are helping the party in another crucial way: unlocking tens of millions of dollars in campaign donations from the wealthy conservatives and corporate interests that benefited handsomely from it.

Billionaires and corporations that reaped millions of dollars in tax cuts are pumping some of that windfall into the Congressional Leadership Fund, a “super PAC” closely aligned with Speaker Paul D. Ryan that is flooding the airwaves and front porches of swing congressional districts with increasingly sharp attacks on the Democratic candidates vying to wrest control of the House.

We need to collectively move on from our grief, and find a viable candidate for 2020.

I personally think Corey Booker should run.

Go on, drag me...

Las Vegas shooting: Mandalay Bay Hotel owner sues 1,000 victims

Source: BBC News

The owner of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas has filed a lawsuit against more than 1,000 victims of a mass shooting that killed 58 people in 2017.

The MGM Resorts International's lawsuit does not seek money and appears to be a judicial bid to avoid liability and dismiss claims against it.

A lawyer for several victims called the lawsuit "outrageous" and "verging on unethical", according to US reports.

Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on festival-goers before killing himself.
