Donald Trump: 'The hedge fund guys are getting away with murder'

August 23, 2015 by legitgov

Donald Trump: 'The hedge fund guys are getting away with murder' --'They're paying nothing and it's ridiculous. I want to save the middle class.' | 23 Aug 2015 | Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would change the tax laws to force people who work at hedge funds to pay more in taxes, because "the hedge fund guys are getting away with murder." In an interview with Time Magazine published last week, Trump said he might want to "switch taxes around" because "I have hedge fund guys that are making a lot of money that aren't paying anything." He confirmed on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday that he would change the tax system to force those who work for hedge funds to pay more. [Gee, Scott Walker and the other Koch suckers are not going to like this...Contrast Donald Trump's position with corporatist fraud Obama, who is completely in the service of Wall Street. Obusha has classified TPP corporate takeover documents as 'state secrets,' punishable by imprisonment. --LRP]

MSNBC Airs Softball Interview With Anti-Union Activist Campbell Brown | 19 Aug 2015 | After her show was cancelled on account of low ratings, former CNN anchor [pea-brain] Campbell Brown reinvented herself as an education reformer and charter school advocate -- this despite having little to no training in education, and never having taught students herself. She founded the education corporate advocacy group the Partnership for Educational Justice to fight teacher tenure in New York and recently launched the Seventy Four, an "nonprofit, nonpartisan" education news site. However, as some critics have pointed out, Brown's news [sic] site is largely dedicated to trashing teachers unions and advocating for school choice...Brown has refused to disclose the donors behind her Partnership for Educational Justice -- which is not tied to the news site -- saying only that they come from "both sides of the aisle." But MSNBC made no mention of Brown's ties to advocacy groups -- or her lack of transparency -- when she came on "Morning Joe" on Wednesday to promote an upcoming education forum with many of the Republican presidential nominees.
