Will Current Political Currents Lead to a Top 70 Percent U.S. Tax Rate in 2021?

January 22nd, 2019 Comments off

Facts are what they are and should not be over or under stated.  For example, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) is a formidable political figure, a potent fund raise, and the most powerful elected female office holder in the U.S. today.

 

All those points about Speaker Pelosi are realities.

But it is equally true that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez – @AOC – has more Twitter followers than Speaker Pelosi.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY-D)’s Twitter following is shown below. Clearly, he holds the most powerful chair on the Democratic side in the U.S. Senate.

But then consider Senator Bernie Senator (VT-I but caucuses with Democrats), who dwarfs the three above.  One reading of this is that the further left a candidate or politico seems to be, the more Twitter followers that they appear to have.

Or look at the Twitter followers for Senator Elizabeth Warren (MA-D), who has an exploratory committee launched for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020. She has roughly an equal number of Twitter followers as Speaker Pelosi or Minority leader Schumer have.

What’s Up With That Headline?

This left-of-center MSNBC video does a decent job of running through some of AOC’s outline, and explains some of the reasons why it might not work out the way she claims.

 

 

What the video above doesn’t mention is that hundreds of billions of dollars have flowed into the U.S. since the tax cuts were passed in late 2017, and went into effect in 2018.

Those repatriated dollars brought money into the U.S. Treasury, and has provided huge pools of money that are being invested in various ways across the 50 states.

But facts don’t matter for millions who may not understand the ways that proposals like AOC’s could cost the nation.

 

 

The election cycle never stops in the U.S., certainly not at the federal level.  No sooner than one election is completed, and the results are sorted out, the next election cycle is underway.  Democrats could have 20 to 50 candidates that raise their banner for their party’s nominee for the presidency.

 

 

What the Twitter followers data suggests is where the energy” is with significant portions of the “base” of the Democratic party. The experience of Venezuela is moot to those who don’t follow the facts.

 

 

One of the best defenses against having the economic shock that significantly higher tax rates would bring is education of those in your circle of influence.

Arguably no one in MHVille is providing more meat and potato intellectual meals for the reality checks needed to make more voters think.  That’s this evening’s look at the trends that are causing concerns among some investors, which in turn have caused more uncertainty in the markets.  It’s not the only thing, but it is a thing. “We Provide, You Decide.” © ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)

$500 Billion Dollar Affordable Housing Plan from Warren, Growing Manufactured Home-Impacting Plots

September 29th, 2018 Comments off

$500BillionDollarAffordableHousingPlanWarrenGrowingManufacturedHomeImpactingPlotsDailyBusinessNewsMHPronews

There are at least 4 recent “affordable housing program” proposals that have been announced that have the potential to impact manufactured housing for good or ill.

3 of them are by higher-profile 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Senator Kalama Harris’ (CA-D) office has provided a plan she has styled the “Rent Relief Act of 2018,” which can be read at that hot-link or as a download.

Senator Cory Booker’s (NJ-D) communication’s team provided MHProNews his idea that will impact the affordable housing and manufactured home markets in a concept he’s styled “Housing, Opportunity, Mobility, and Equity Act of 2018.’’

This passed week, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (MA-D) office has provided the Daily Business News on MHProNews her plan. It’s dubbed the “American Housing and Economic Mobility Act.”

The last plan was described by the left-of-center Intercept  as “The legislation calls for a half-trillion dollar investment in affordable housing over the next 10 years, creating up to 3.2 million new units for low- and middle-income families.” Why have a plan that only covers less than half of the affordable housing shortfall reported by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) ?

That’s 3 plans from 3 Democratic hopefuls.  We will review those in the days ahead here on MHProNews, but note here that each involves an effort to frame affordable housing as an important issue for the upcoming midterms. Each prospective Democratic hopeful believes that affordable housing is one of the necessary planks for winning the midterms, and thus winning the White House 2 years later.

That’s a huge signal to manufactured housing tea-leaves-readers. Note that a quick thumbnail is this.  Each plan has an opportunity to erode the private-sector solution for affordable housing that is provided by the manufactured housing industry.

Henry Kraemer, a Portland-based activist, co-authored an article in The Nation in May making the political case for Democrats to take up housing issues. In August, he followed up withco-authored report laying out specific policy recommendations, such as new rent subsidies and expanded public housing,” said the Intercept.

Manufactured housing investors and professionals – sit up and take notice from the ONLY trade publisher in MHVille that keeps you abreast of these topics which can help-or-harm your bottom lines with such clarity and depth of information. Where’s the Manufactured Housing Institute’s (MHI) analysis and commentary on these looming issues?

HUD Secretary Ben Carson and the Trump Administration’s Plan – Which Has Noted MH

The “U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced that it aims to “streamline and enhance” an Obama-era rule on desegregation,” said CityLabs.

The same source said that this time “...HUD is adopting a novel framework for rolling back its rule on desegregation: Carson is pitching this rule change as a way to fend off NIMBYism.” If that sounds like YIMBY vs. NIMBY, CityLabs says you’re right. Once more, it is the Daily Business News that spotlighted that issue, which a few state association executives, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), and a small circle of others have mentioned.

A Washington, D.C. source has told MHProNews that our submission to HUD and the DOE have drawn attention on manufactured housing issues. CityLabs calls Carson’s move an about face. Coincidence?

When former President Jimmy Carter blasted the Trump Administration for their failure to address affordable housing as he thought it should be done, a HUD spokeswoman told MHProNews that part of the Carson plan is manufactured housing.  She specifically pointed to the talk Carson gave, which is linked below.

As the midterms approach – now just 38 days away, and with early voting starting in some places – the industry needs to wake up and smell the coffee for what’s coming.  There are signals both ways as to how the polling is going.

Pew Research says that interest among voters about the midterms is at 72 percent, a sky-high level for non-presidential year voting. It’s a jump ball between the two major parties.
