"When Paul Ryan leaves government, the federal deficit will be $1.2 trillion higher than when he arrived." - WaPo Funny we don't hear anything from Republicans about the debt and deficit, isn't it?

And then when the Democrats have to raise taxes to pay for this mess, they get demonized as tax and spend blah blah blah. So over it

News too focused on Russia to realize the 100 other things that actually matter. Sadly it’s all about advertising dollars and not about shedding light on important stories. Journalism has become entertainment

Caring about the deficit is a nice tool to try and hobble the opposition when they’re in power. R’s don’t really give a damn. Dick Cheney has a nice quote that deficits don’t matter.

They moan when dems are in office, screams bloody murder. Then they get in power and spend like drunken sailors. That’s the playbook, always has been.

Eh, that was in the Washington Post. I'm talking about the silence of Republicans.

@P2 - Too much on Russia? An adversary is actively disrupting our democracy and OUR president has trouble even admitting it. Literally just had first meeting to take action. Until it is stopped, I think it’s a pretty big deal and should get top coverage.

The same silence from Democrats on the deficit happened when Obama was in power. Republicans like to cut taxes, Democrats like to spend money, neither party has the balls to dramatically cut spending or dramatically raise taxes accordingly. So the cycle repeats

So many burned out colleagues I've met over the years are planning an industry exit strategy, either soon or down the line. Are you thinking of leaving the biz, for what, and why?

I have a roster talented and diverse attorney candidates, especially for organizations looking to increase diversity (race, gender).

Thoughts on Big 4 -> PE ops role? 2 years out of undergrad, interviewing for a 2 year analyst role, would then do MBA afterwards. Interest post-MBA would be turnaround and restructuring Not a "name brand" firm. Smaller, local shop but role would have broad exposure across the firm and might involve work with investment team after year 1

So, Trump is giving corporations a 20% tax break and is taking away the tax benefit of contributing to your 401k. So he effectively took our money and gave it to corporations. Take that middle class.
