Robinson, re elected in Coquitlam Maillairdville and formerly critic for mental health and addictions, is seen as a strong advocate for housing affordability and a rising star in Premier John Horgan party.

timberland ankle boots House Speaker Busch sister thought he was dying

timberland clearance sale House Speaker Busch sister thought he was dying

“I thought he was going to tell us he that was dying, and he wanted us to make sure that we knew what his wishes were for his children,” Kathleen “Laurie” Bernhardt said.

Instead, gathered around a kitchen table at Bernhardt’s house, one of the most powerful men in Maryland politics asked his three younger sisters for half a liver.

Three and a half months after the liver transplant, Busch and his sister spoke publicly for the first time Thursday about the surgery that saved his life and renewed the bond between them.

In the House of Delegates lounge at the Maryland State House, Bernhardt rapped Busch on the back to remind him to sit up straight. She ruffled his hair disapprovingly and turned to his surgeon.

“His hair thinned out back here,” she said. “Think you can make it grow back thick like mine?”

Busch laughed and shrugged.

“I’m like the family pet.”

Busch said he thought his liver condition was manageable until mid May, when a doctor asked the age of his eldest daughter. The doctor suggested she donate part of her liver to save him.

“It was a pretty traumatic moment,” Busch said. “I had thought after the [legislative] session, with the lack of the stress of the session, that I could get more rest. That some of this would take care of itself.

“That was not the case.”

It was around the time that Busch filed for reelection to the seat he’s held since 1987. He still plans to return in January as speaker and, next November, seek his ninth four year term in office.

The Anne Arundel County Democrat is the longest serving House speaker in Maryland history. A college football player at Temple University, his athleticism has defined his political persona delegates affectionately call him “coach.”

His illness began unfolding in public last fall, but doctors did not diagnose him with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis until May. By then, Busch, a nondrinker, had packed 16 liters 30 pounds of fluid on his abdomen. He couldn’t take off his own shoes.

He was so weak, his sister dressed him in his hospital gown after putting on her own.

“All your vanity is gone when you’re in those gowns,” Busch said.

Just six weeks earlier, on the hectic, final day of the General Assembly session, Busch had put his No. 2 in charge of the House while he rested in his office. He told reporters he just had the sniffles, and was feeling “better than ever.”

His sisters had been worried for more than a year.

“My sisters and I would say to each other, ‘Don’t you think he looks bad?’ ‘He looks bad.’ ‘He says he’s fine,” Bernhardt said.

“And then we’d see him at another family gathering, and he’s not getting better. [He’d say,] ‘I have a bit of fluid and it’s pressing on my stomach, but I’m taking pills and it’s going away, blah, blah, blah,'” Bernhardt said. “Each time we saw him, he did not look any better. But he kept telling us that he was fine, that he was getting better.”

Five weeks ago, Busch was still recovering and unable to return to work or eat much. A state trooper on his security detail would drive him from his Annapolis home to the State House to collect mail, and Busch would convene impromptu staff meetings in the backseat of his SUV, call House Democrats facing tough reelection bids and, in between medical appointments, grant interviews about how a Confederate era statue should be removed from State House grounds.

Busch said Thursday he feels he finally turned a corner last month.

“I still think it’s day by day, you know what I mean? I’m just happy to be where I am now, and I’m eternally grateful that my sisters stepped up to the plate,” he said. “I didn’t know that they thought I was going to tell them I was dying. But I was going to do everything I could to live. I have two daughters.”

“And a wife,” Bernhardt reminded him.

Busch and Bernhardt pitched themselves as poster children for the benefits of the University of Maryland’s living donor program, one of the largest transplant operations in the country.

“What we want you to do is advertise that donation is a good thing,” she told a reporter. “Put in there that the liver does regenerate itself, and people can donate and still after recuperation remain healthy and retain their active lifestyles.”

The operation that saved Busch’s life was rare just 10 years ago, said his surgeon, Rolf Barth, the head of the University of Maryland Medical Center’s transplant program.

splitrock timberland boots House Republicans working to plan to avert another shutdown

timberland boots girls House Republicans working to plan to avert another shutdown

Details are closely held and subject to change. But at issue is a two year deal to increase crunching caps on spending set by a failed 2011 budget deal. Republicans have pushed for defense increases in the neighborhood of $80 billion a year and have offered Democrats nearly as much $60 billion or so per year for nondefense programs.

Add in $80 billion to $90 billion worth of hurricane aid for Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, health care funding and money for President Donald Trump’s border security plan, and the final tally could total close to $400 billion. The potential cost, over the 2018 19 budget years, would rival the deficit impact of last year’s tax measure over that period.

“Republicans for years have made all of these bold promises to rein in spending,” said Brian Riedl, a budget analyst at the conservative Manhattan Institute. “And they’re doing the opposite.”

The negotiations are bipartisan since it takes votes from Democrats to lift the budget caps and advance a follow up omnibus spending bill, whose overall cost is likely to exceed $1.2 trillion. That means domestic programs get their due, despite the opposition of conservatives.

“Right now, everything I’m hearing grows the size of government at 13 percent,” said Rep. “And that’s a nonstarter for conservatives.”

Still, Republican deficit hawks stepped aside during last year’s tax debate, and it’s not looking like they’ll mount a stand now. Instead, GOP defense hawks worried about lagging readiness, training and weapons procurement are carrying the day, even if it means placating Democrats with spending elsewhere.

“This budget dysfunction has a human cost, and our military is bearing the brunt of it,” said Mac Thornberry, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, citing a spate of casualties from training accidents last year.

The potential agreement would significantly exceed Trump’s request for a $54 billion increase in defense spending to $603 billion before adding war funds above the current cap. Thornberry, R Texas, said negotiators are “very close to a budget agreement.”

The budget talks are closely held and occurring as lawmakers struggle to sort through a solution to protect younger immigrants soon to be at risk of deportation with Trump’s elimination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, called DACA, established by President Barack Obama. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D Calif., has linked progress on the budget with action to address DACA, but other Democrats are beginning to agitate for delinking the two, lest the opportunity for a budget pact be lost.

A trade of offers on Thursday represented progress, aides said, but an agreement didn’t appear imminent. The aides, both Democrats and Republicans, spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks are secretive.

The budget caps are the hangover from the 2011 Budget Control Act, negotiated between Republicans and Obama, that prevented a default on the national debt and established a deficit cutting supercommittee. But the failure of the supercommittee left behind unrealistic automatic spending cuts, known as sequestration, and today’s stringent spending caps.

Deals in 2013 and 2015 eased the effects of sequestration by replacing cuts to domestic agency operating budgets and the Pentagon with spending cuts and fee increases elsewhere in the budget. Those offsetting measures tended to be relatively pain free, though.

This year’s looming deal is too big, however, to be fully offset with easy cuts elsewhere so Capitol Hill leaders would simply be adding much of its costs straight to the $20.6 trillion national debt.

In the wake of last year’s tax bill, the Congressional Budget Office says the deficit for 2018 will hit about $700 billion before any fresh increase. Next year’s deficit is already estimated to reach $975 billion, so the brewing agreement would mean the first $1 trillion plus deficit since Obama’s first term.

House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack, R Ark., told reporters at a GOP retreat that he is considering abandoning the chamber’s traditional pursuit of a budget resolution this year. Under Capitol Hill’s arcane rules, the annual budget resolution is a nonbinding measure that lays out priorities on spending, taxes and deficits. But it takes follow up legislation to implement these priorities.

Womack said he might instead focus his efforts on unspecified changes to Washington’s budget process. He said any House budget measure “certainly will not have a force of law and, No. 2, is not ever going to see the light of day.”

timberland heeled boots House passes bill that allows comp time for private sector worker

baby timberlands boots House passes bill that allows comp time for private sector worker

Julia Horowitz CNNMoney (New York) Do you get paid for overtime work? The House of Representatives just passed a bill you may want to know about.

The measure, backed by Republicans, would let employers give workers time off instead of time and a half pay the next time they put in extra hours. The vote tally was largely along party lines, with no Democrats voting in favor of the bill. Six Republicans also voted against it.

“I don’t think there’s anything more powerful than giving them more control over their time so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families,” Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington said Tuesday morning in a press conference held by Republican leaders in the House.

The Trump administration also came out in support of the measure on Tuesday. The White House said in a news release that the president’s advisers would recommend Trump sign the bill into law if it was presented to him in its current form. 1180 would help American workers balance the competing demands of family and work by giving them flexibility to earn paid time off time they can later use for any reason, including family commitments like attending school appointments and caring for a sick child. 1180 contains critical protections to ensure employees can continue to choose overtime pay and to prohibit employers from coercing their employees to accept compensatory time instead of overtime pay.” The White HouseBut Democrats stand in strong opposition. Their chief concern is that employers have the final say on when comp time can be used, which means bosses can defer compensating employees for overtime work.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts a Democrat who has made workers’ protections her flagship cause and sits on the Senate Committee on Health, Education,
timberland heeled boots House passes bill that allows comp time for private sector worker
Labor and Pensions called the bill a “disgrace” on Twitter.

Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, who is the top Democrat on the Senate HELP committee, said the bill doesn’t put workers first.

“This is nothing but a recycled bad bill that would allow big corporations to make an end run around giving workers the pay they’ve earned,” Murray said in a statement.

Congressional Republicans have pitched similar measures a number of times over the past two decades but have been unable to get the rule on the books. An analogous bill passed the House in 2013 but died in the Senate.

Republicans, who hold 52 seats in the upper chamber, will need eight Democrats to vote in favor of the legislation to avoid a filibuster.

The House bill is sponsored by Rep. Martha Roby of Alabama. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah has introduced a similar bill in the Senate, but it’s still in committee.

Compensatory time off (comp time) is paid time off the job that is earned and accrued by an employee instead of immediate cash payment for working overtime hours. The use of comp time instead of overtime is limited by Section 7(o) of the FLSA to a public agency that is a state, a political subdivision of a state,

Claire frequently wears form fitting sheath dresses that allow her to transition from the office to her husband’s official political events with ease. Her taste for minimalism is appealing as she accessorizes with interesting necklines, rather than jewellery. Of course, running around from power meetings to her husband’s award ceremonies means that Claire relies on a sturdy pair of black pumps. I’m convinced that we, as the viewer, are meant to see the red sole on the bottoms of her heels as she casually flicks them off in countless episodes. The devil may wear Prada, but Claire wears Louboutins.

Claire gives a nod to menswear in a couple of episodes by wearing a crisp button down shirt. An essential aspect of any corporate vixen’s closet, her button down shirt is fitted and tailored to fit her form. When Claire goes for the menswear look, she really goes for it with a complementary pair of dark frames, that only she is able to pass off as corporate chic, as opposed to trendy.

How to get Claire’s look: Choose button down shirts that are fitted to your body and are not boxy. Balance them out with a classic corporate style piece the pencil skirt. A solid pair of dark rimmed glasses complete the look.

No one wears a coat like Claire. The woman could put on a windbreaker and still look incredibly important and stylish. She would never. Rather, the coats that she opts for throughout the series are simple, classic pieces ranging from a dark trench coat to a camel wool coat. In each case, they both look like they have been tailored to suit her, and quite frankly, they look expensive.

How to get Claire’s look: When it comes to proper, scene stealing coats, you need not choose interesting styles or different colours. Claire demonstrates that classic shapes and styles are best so long as they are fitted immaculately to the body. Coats are items that are well worth the investment because it shows.

House of Cards has me believing that every wife of a politician has an arsenal of cocktail dresses at the ready. In Claire’s closet, you find simple strapless dresses in her characteristic form fitting and neutral colour style. That’s not to say that her dresses are boring,
timberland trainers House of Cards Fashion
when in fact, she knocked it out of the park in the episode where she just so happens to wear this to the same event that her incredibly handsome photographer ex lover is also attending. That, my friends, is how ‘effortless’ is done in Claire’s world.

How to get Claire’s look: It’s really hard to get Claire’s look when she looks so impossibly chic in this dress. But, for cocktail events, we can work from three simple rules: choose a style that shows off your most flattering features (which for Claire is her strong shoulders and defined collarbone), that hits you at an appropriate length for the event that you are attending, and most importantly, that you feel extremely confident in.

I have probably never wanted a bag more than after watching Claire so easily throw her dome shaped ‘Muse’ bag by Yves Saint Laurent on her desk at the office or slam it down on the coffee table at home. Being so casual with a designer bag means that it is easily replaceable for her, while others of us might treat it to its own chair at restaurants. Besides this apparent display of affluence, the bag with its heavy hardware and jet black leather shows us that Claire means business and makes me want it even more.

How to get Claire’s look: There’s no easy way around this one other than to get a banging bag. One that works for your style, except, please treat it with care.

After admiring Claire’s wardrobe for an entire season, I’ve realized that a great deal of Claire’s corporate style comes down to her attitude. She is incredibly confident in herself and she wears clothes that reflect this. She knows the colours, fits, shapes, and cuts that work for her and she nails them each and every time. If only the rest of us can be so consistent. Until then, grabbing a button down shirt and some dark rimmed glasses is a pretty good place to start.

timberland coats House lawmakers hammer Senate for not approving Trump

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R OK) testifies before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee during his confirmation hearing to be administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Nov. 1.

President Trump nominated Bridenstine in September and the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee narrowly voted in November to forward his name to the full Senate for approval.

But his nomination in the GOP controlled Senate has stalled due largely to opposition from two key members: Sen. Marco Rubio, R Fla., and Sen. Bill Nelson, D Fla., the top Democrat on the Commerce panel.

The delay is infuriating some Republican House colleagues of Bridenstine, not only because he’s a political ally but also out of concern that NASA cannot fully handle its complex charge with a fill in at the helm. Robert M. Lightfoot Jr., a career NASA employee, has been acting director since Jan. 20, 2017 a span of 406 days.

“No offense to you but I hope the next time we’re sitting here that Administrator Bridenstine will be in the chair,” Rep. Jim Banks, R Ind., told Lightfoot during a hearing Wednesday on NASA’s proposed 2019 budget before members of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee. “It’s an embarrassment to the process that that hasn’t happened yet.”

“You’ve done an outstanding job,” Rep. Frank Lucas, R Okla., told Lightfoot in a comforting tone. “But ultimately, the resources that the agency needs in the long term, having a director nominated and confirmed by the United States Senate is critically important.”

Lightfoot, the longest acting director in NASA history, didn’t argue.

“It is always a value to have the person the president wants in this position and I think that would be important for us all,” Lightfoot said. “But I can tell you for the past year I’ve had no trouble getting access to the people I’ve needed to have access to.”

No date for a floor vote has been set. A spokeswoman for Bridenstine declined to comment.

The lack of a permanent administrator comes at a pivotal point for NASA.

Trump has placed new emphasis on the agency’s importance by reviving the National Space Council headed by Vice President Mike Pence, announcing a re pivot to the moon, and proposing the privatization of the International Space Station by 2025.

In addition, missions to develop the powerful Space Launch System designed to take astronauts to Mars within 20 years, develop a network of private rockets to ferry passengers to the space lab and launch the James Webb Space Telescope are approaching key milestones.

Rep. Dana Rohrbacher, R Ca., who sits on the committee, blasted senators for their “arrogance” in not approving Bridenstine, a commercial space advocate who has been endorsed by prominent astronauts such as Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

“This is the product of a couple of senators who are bullheaded and couple of senators who are basically watching out for their own little domain rather than what’s good for the overall country,” Rohrbacher said without using names.

Nelson, who has called Bridenstine politically divisive, so far has kept the Senate’s 49 Democrats unified against his confirmation.

Rubio has expressed deep misgivings about nominating a politician to an agency that prides itself on being non partisan, especially when the nominee cut ads on behalf of Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz suggesting that Rubio, a rival in the 2016 race for president, was soft on terror.

Even if Rubio opposes Bridenstine, the combat war veteran who represents the Tulsa area could win confirmation with Pence casting the tie breaking vote in favor. But complicating matters is the failing health of two GOP senators Thad Cochran of Mississippi and John McCain of Arizona whose attendance now appears crucial to Bridenstine’s successful confirmation. Cochran announced Monday he is retiring effective April 1.

Lightfoot told the panel Wednesday the lack of a permanent successor is not stopping the agency from moving ahead with the controversial plan of ending operation of the space station when the current agreement with international partners expires in 2024.

Trump’s proposed budget includes $150 million as seed money to help NASA assist industry to develop commercial ventures which could eventually operate the space station or at least take over portions of the orbiting lab.

timberland deck shoes House GOP weighs repeal of health mandate in tax bill

timberland snow boots for men House GOP weighs repeal of health mandate in tax bill

Ryan, R Wis., told “Fox News Sunday” that “a lot of members are suggesting” that the House include the repeal, though he did not weigh in personally on how to deal with the coverage mandate.

Equally as evasive was the second ranking House GOP leader: “Well, I know people are talking about it,” Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R Calif., said on CBS'” Face the Nation.” He added: “Look, my focus is on tax. As the individual mandate goes, I would not be opposed to that. But I want to see this bill go forward.”

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that repealing the individual mandate would save $416 billion over a decade. That’s because without it, fewer people would enroll in Medicaid or buy federally subsidized coverage on insurance exchanges.

Republicans are likely to make changes to the measure to ease opposition among some GOP lawmakers as the Ways and Means Committee takes up the plan. Some want to broaden tax relief to include more small businesses, while others are upset at a provision eliminating a tax credit for adoption expenses.


For example, the GOP proposal eliminates the deduction for state and local income taxes, and caps the deduction for state and local property taxes at $10,000. Some lawmakers from New York and New Jersey oppose the change. tax code in three decades, mixing sharp tax cuts for corporations and businesses with more modest relief for individuals. An inflation change to tax brackets announced on Friday reduced the tax cut to individuals by $89 billion over 10 years. Many earners in the upper middle class, especially those from high tax states, are facing tax increases.

In examining the GOP’s tax bill, Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation projected that the expiration of certain tax breaks would result in tax increases for some income groups in some years.

An analysis from the liberal Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said the committee’s projections showed the tax cuts would overwhelmingly benefit the wealthiest households. Meanwhile, the joint committee’s analysis indicated that tax filers with incomes between $20,000 and $40,000 would pay higher individual income taxes in 2023 and each year thereafter, as would filers with incomes between $200,000 and $500,000.

“They give with one hand and take away with the other,” said Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D Calif.

The bill would telescope today’s seven personal income tax brackets into four: 12 percent, 25 percent, 35 percent and 39.6 percent. The 25 percent rate would start at $45,000 for individuals and $90,000 for married couples.

The standard deduction used by people who don’t itemize, around two thirds of taxpayers would nearly double to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for couples. That’s expected to encourage even more people to use the standard deduction with a simplified tax form Republicans say will be postcard sized.

timberland nellie boots House Forced To Revote On GOP Tax Bill Wednesday

Senate Republicans have passed the most sweeping rewrite of the nation’s tax laws in more than three decades, setting the stage for a final House vote Wednesday.

The House passed the bill earlier Tuesday. But the Senate had to make minor changes so the bill would comply with Senate budget rules.

The tax cuts total nearly $1.5 trillion over the next decade and would take effect in January. Workers would start to see changes in the amount of taxes withheld from their paychecks in February.

Democrats say three provisions in the Republican $1.5 trillion tax bill violate Senate rules and will likely be removed before that chamber votes on the measure.

The House approved the legislation Tuesday. But this means the House will have to vote again on the legislation once it’s been amended and approved by the Senate.

Senate passage was expected Tuesday night or early Wednesday. GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s office says the House would reconsider the bill Wednesday morning and send it to President Donald Trump for his signature.

Democrats said the Senate parliamentarian had found three items that violated Senate rules.

These included one provision that would let families use tax advantaged 529 accounts for home schooling expenses.

The problem was revealed by Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders and Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden.

Gleeful Republicans on Tuesday muscled the most sweeping rewrite of the nation’s tax laws in more than three decades through the House. House Speaker Paul Ryan dismissed criticism of the widely unpopular package and insisted “results are what’s going to make this popular.”

The vote, largely along party lines, was 227 203 and capped a GOP sprint to deliver a major legislative accomplishment to President Donald Trump after a year of congressional stumbles and non starters.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R Ky., said the Senate would vote Tuesday evening, sending the legislation to Trump for his signature. economy, providing steep tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy, and more modest tax cuts for middle and low income families. It would push the national debt ever higher.

The standard deduction used by most families would be nearly doubled, to $24,000 for a married couple, while those who itemize would lose some deductions.

“We’re delivering a tax code that provides more jobs, fairer taxes and bigger paychecks to Americans across the country,” said Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas, Republican chairman of the tax writing Ways and Means Committee. “Our local job creators will see the lowest rates in modern history so they can invest more in their workers and in their future.”

Democrats called the bill a giveaway to corporations and the wealthy, providing little if any tax help to the less than well to do and no likelihood that business owners will use their gains to hire more workers or raise wages.

And the Republicans’ contention that the bill will make taxes so simple that millions can file “on a postcard” an idea repeated often by the president was simply mocked.

“What happened to the postcard? We’re going to have to carry around a billboard for tax simplification,” declared Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts, the top Democrat on the Ways and Means Committee.

Tax cuts for corporations would be permanent while the cuts for individuals would expire in 2026 in order to comply with Senate budget rules. The tax cuts would take effect in January. Workers would start to see changes in the amount of taxes withheld from their paychecks in February.

During debate, decorum on the House floor was fleeting as two New Yorkers a Democrat and a Republican voiced their opinions on the bill. Rep. Rep.

The bill is unpopular among the public, and Democrats plan to campaign against it in next year’s congressional elections. Senate Democrats posted poll numbers on the bill on a video screen at their Tuesday luncheon.

“This bill will come back to haunt them, as Frankenstein did,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

Not so, said Ryan, who has worked for years on tax overhaul.

“When we get this done, when people see their withholding improving, when they see jobs occurring, when they see bigger paychecks, a fairer tax system, a simpler tax code, that’s what’s going to produce the results,” said Ryan, R Wis.

The bill would slash the corporate income tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. The top tax rate for individuals would be lowered from 39.6 percent to 37 percent.

It scales back a popular deduction for state and local taxes, repeals a key tenet of Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act and allows drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
