WTAS: Praise Continues to Roll in for President Trump's Unified Framework for Tax Reform

EDITORIAL BOARDS The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board: “Overall, the GOP has produced a tax-reform outline that can revitalize a weak economic expansion, lead to more new business creation, enhance worker productivity, and lift wages.” New York Post Editorial Board: “The US economy needs strong medicine to break out of the slow-growth ‘new normal’ it’s been trapped in since the Great Recession. That has left Wall Street and the rich doing fine, but Main Street and everyone else struggling. The Big Six — Trump’s top two economic advisers, the House and Senate leaders and the two chairmen of Congress’ tax-writing committees — have now outlined just the medicine. It includes corporate-tax reform to finally make US rates competitive with those of other developed nations, along with changes for other businesses to put them on a fair footing with corporations, plus revision of the personal income-tax code to put more money in middle-class pockets. Simplification of the code will also make it less maddening to actually do your taxes as well as ending some blatant inequalities.” The Washington Times Editorial Board: “The details of the plan are almost all positive and pro-growth. This is as much a jobs bill as a tax plan.” Washington Examiner Editorial Board: “A simpler corporate tax code doesn’t just mean businesses would spend less time on paperwork and filing taxes, it means they can spend more time on productive endeavors, such as more innovation and product improvement. It also means Big Business won’t be able simply to hire the best tax accountants to beat the little guy. They’ll actually have to compete on the value of their goods and services.” Investor’s Business Daily Editorial Board: “Among the most potent provisions in the GOP tax reform package unveiled Wednesday by President Trump are the big cuts in taxes on corporations and small businesses…. By supporting corporate and small-business tax cuts that will boost investment, create more and better jobs, and raise average workers’ incomes, Americans won’t just be cutting taxes for businesses. They’ll be cutting their own taxes, too.” National Review Editorial Board: “Republicans’ framework for tax reform is chock-full of good ideas about modernizing the taxation of business.” PRIVATE SECTOR LEADERS, COMMENTATORS, AND ADVOCACY GROUPS Eli Lilly & Co. Chairman And CEO David A. Ricks: “When President Trump came to my company’s hometown of Indianapolis on Wednesday to lay out his tax-reform plan, it was welcome news. The proposal, developed by the White House and congressional Republicans, would cut the corporate tax rate to 20%, put in place a territorial system, and maintain tax credits for research and development. This would go a long way toward leveling the playing field for American workers and businesses competing against their foreign peers.” Best Buy Chairman and CEO Hubert Joly: “I am encouraged by the latest efforts by the Administration and Congressional leaders to advance corporate tax reform and the progress that has been made in recent months. For the first time in decades, the country has a real opportunity to achieve significant tax reform which will allow companies to reinvest in jobs, grow the economy and create opportunities for all Americans. We are ready to help pass tax reform this year.” Job Creators Network President and CEO Alfredo Ortiz: “While many details still need to be filled in, this is a crucial and positive step in the right direction. Make no mistake: the recent progress in the campaign for tax relief should bring optimism to the 29 million small business owners and the roughly 56 million people that depend on them for their livelihoods.” Mercatus Center Senior Research Fellow Veronique de Rugy: “There is a lot to like in this plan: It reforms the corporate income tax system, it reduces the tax rate for small businesses and S-corps, it simplifies the tax brackets on the individual side of the code from seven to three, it eliminates some of the tax exemptions which are both a handout to special interests and make the tax code complex and unfair. The bottom line is that, if implemented, it would be an improvement of our tax code.” The Heartland Institute President Tim Huelskamp: “President Donald Trump and Republicans are showing what strong leadership looks like by proposing this forward-looking tax plan. These tax reforms would help Americans get back to work and assist in draining the Washington, DC swamp.” The Heritage Foundation Policy Analyst Adam Michel: “Bold tax reform got a big boost on Wednesday. Leaders in the House, the Senate, and the White House have all agreed on a tax outline, meaning a true update to our broken tax system could be imminent…. Most simply, this will allow all Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money in their pockets. Importantly, the plan goes a long way toward fixing our business tax system, which makes it hard for U.S. businesses to invest in new equipment and new factories. Slow investment caused by our high and distortionary taxes has limited American job creation and slowed wage growth.” Independent Women’s Forum Senior Policy Analyst Patrice Onwuka: “The White House tax plan is a win for women…. Women will benefit as workers, keeping more of their earnings. Lowering the corporate tax rate will make it more likely that workers might finally see a real raise. And female business owners can look forward to greater growth and the opportunity to expand as they become more competitive with international businesses. We may experience even faster growth in women-owned businesses, which are already being established 1.5 times faster the national average. This tax plan would be a big step in the right direction for women and our country.” Tea Party Patriots President Jenny Beth Martin: “Tea Party Patriots and our network of grassroots activists are excited by the framework President Trump and Republicans in Congress have released for top-to-bottom tax reform. After eight years of a stagnant economy under former President Obama that left too many American families behind, we are confident that fundamental tax reform will help Americans keep more of their hard-earned money, and will also foster an economic environment that will lead to greater job creation and prosperity for all Americans. The framework released by the White House and congressional Republicans will establish a tax system for individuals that is simpler, flatter and fairer, helping to lessen not only the enormous tax burden on Americans, but will also greatly reduce the outrageous compliance costs associated with today’s overly complex code.” Fox News Contributor Bradley Blakeman: “President Trump’s tax plan is smart and timely. What matters is not how well Wall Street is doing. What matters t is how well Main Street is doing. These reforms will be a tremendous boost to the middle class. It is time for a major overhaul of the U.S. tax code, tax rates, deductions and loopholes. What our economy needs more than anything is fairness and certainty. This plan will bring that.” MEMBERS OF CONGRESS Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX): “The priorities laid out today by Congressional leadership and the White House to reform our country’s broken, burdensome tax code are incredibly encouraging. There are numerous positive elements in the current outline for which I have long advocated, from lowering and flattening rates for individuals and businesses, to eliminating the death tax and the alternative minimum tax, to allowing for expensing of capital investments, to making reforms that will bring American jobs and companies back to the United States from overseas.” Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH): “Our current tax code encourages U.S. companies to take jobs and investments overseas. The United States is falling behind while other countries are attracting more investment and more jobs at our expense. That is unacceptable. Our reform effort will encourage more investment in America, bring jobs home, and give American workers a competitive advantage…. I’ve been very pleased to see President Trump talking about the urgency of this issue around the country, including again today in Indiana. I’m optimistic about the prospects for getting tax reform signed into law this year. Working together, we can simplify our tax code in a common-sense way to increase investment here in America, create more jobs & increase wages for American workers.” Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA): “I see this as an amazing opportunity and responsibility. Enacting legislation consistent with this framework will allow us to achieve the growth that we’ve been waiting so long to achieve. There’s nothing normal about two percent growth for the United States of America. We’re capable of so much more. When we get this right, I am confident that we will achieve robust growth. What that means for the hardworking families that I represent all across Pennsylvania is a direct pay raise when we lower their direct tax burden. It also means an indirect pay raise as more jobs are created and more businesses are launched. Upward pressure on wages allows people to have a higher standard of living.” Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX): “This framework – supported by both the White House and leaders in Congress – marks an important first step in delivering pro-growth tax reform and relief to the American people. Having grown to over 70,000 pages long, the current tax code is too costly, complex and burdensome. It is time we simplify our broken tax code and allow Americans to keep more of their hard-earned money. This framework provides an important path forward that will lead to bigger paychecks, more jobs and greater economic freedom for middle class Americans. I look forward to working with my colleagues in achieving this historic opportunity to create a fairer, simpler, less burdensome tax code for the American people.” Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM): “Small businesses are the cornerstone and families are the backbone of our state. For too long, our nation’s complex, antiquated, and one-sided tax code has caused stress, undue burden, and hard-earned money to ensure compliance. This is simply wrong, and must change not only for the success of our communities, but for the success of New Mexico and the nation. The tax framework released today has the potential to finally bring the relief that has long been needed. Done right, it will strengthen the middle-class and working-class, ease the burden and stress on families, make small businesses a priority, and put America back on the competitive global playing field.”   ###

Shares of five of the six drug companies at the White House meeting with Trump were up more than 1 percent on average following the president’s remarks, compared with a 0.5 percent drop in the broad S&P 500. The Nasdaq Biotech Index was up 1.1 percent, reversing earlier losses, and the S&P 500 health care index gained 0.7 percent. Attending the meeting were the CEOs of Novartis AG, Merck & Co Inc, Johnson & Johnson, Celgene Corp, Eli Lilly & Co and Amgen Inc as well as the head of the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America lobbying group. Trump told the drugmakers that pricing had been “astronomical.” “We have to get prices down for a lot of reasons. We have no choice, for Medicare and Medicaid,” Trump said at the meeting, citing the nation’s government insurance programs for the elderly, the poor and the disabled that together are the largest U.S. purchaser of medications. Trump also said currency devaluation by other countries had increased drugmakers’ outsourcing their production and called on the companies to make more of their products in the United States. He added that foreign countries must pay fair share for drug development costs. “We’re going to end global freeloading,” Trump said. Novartis CEO Joe Jimenez, who is chairman-elect of the industry lobbying group, said last week that he wanted to talk to Trump about efforts to develop pricing models that would pay for clinical results rather than a flat price per pill, as well as plans to replace the Affordable Care Act, which is popularly known as “Obamacare.” Trump spooked investors in the pharmaceuticals and biotech sectors by saying on Jan. 11, before his inauguration, that drug companies were “getting away with murder” on what they charged the government for medicine and that he would do something about it. That prompted the pharmaceutical lobbying group to unveil a new TV marketing campaign last week to improve its image by focusing attention on strides in research. Company executives, meanwhile, have tried to tread a careful line in defending their industry while expressing optimism that the United States would continue to reward scientific advances.

Pence, Kaine Share Long Histories In The Fundraising Trenches

Mike Pence of Indiana has raised funds for six House races and two gubernatorial campaigns, the second of which was aborted when he was added to the GOP's presidential ticket.  (AP Photo/Charlie Neibergall, File) By: Jack Noland Though divided ideologically, Indiana's Republican Gov. Mike Pence and Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia have traced similar paths through state and federal politics on their way to being nominated for vice president. Both have served in Congress and as governors, and now hope to assume the government's second-from-the-top job. Though they may not discuss it tonight during the campaign's only vice presidential debate, their common ground extends to fundraising, too -- at least in broad strokes. The two have relied on lawyers, Wall Street types and a handful of other well-heeled individuals to raise the copious sums they've needed for their past campaigns. A Hoosier's hunt for cash Mike Pence, tonight's surrogate for GOP White House nominee Donald Trump, was elected to the House six times, collecting $1.1 million for his first run in 2000 and almost $2.7 million for his final contest; his 12-year haul came to more than $10.3 million. After retirees, who contributed $716,789 to Pence's congressional campaigns and leadership PAC (it's not unusual for seniors to be No. 1 on any candidate's list of top donors), the securities and investment industry -- aka Wall Street -- was his most generous industry, kicking in $376,311. Lawyers and law firms were third, providing $337,914. The governor's top donors fall outside those industries, however. The conservative Club for Growth donated $90,762 to Pence's congressional campaigns through its PAC and earmarked contributions from individuals. Cummins Inc, an engine manufacturer, and Eli Lilly & Co, a pharmaceutical company, round out Pence's top three campaign contributors. Employees and PACs of these Indiana-based corporations gave $78,500 and $64,350, respectively. When Pence ran for governor of Indiana in 2012, he raised more than $14.8 million -- including $425,000 from the late Dean White, a billionaire businessman from the state; that made White Pence's top individual donor that year. Big shots of party cash came via the Republican Governors Association and the Indiana Republican Party, which gave $1.1 million and $811,504, respectively. Pence also picked up $220,000 and $200,000 contributions from conservative bigwigs like Texas homebuilder Bob Perry, who passed away in 2013, and billionaire industrialist David Koch. After joining the presidential ticket in July, Pence dropped his 2016 re-election bid, having already raised more than $16.1 million. The RGA, Pence's top funder in 2012, had contributed more than $3 million, and the governor also collected $300,634 from Anthony Moravec, the CEO of Columbus-based Applied Laboratories, Inc., and another $100,000 from David Koch. White, who died in September, also contributed $350,000 to Pence's 2016 reelection effort. Trump and the governor will be unable to cultivate much hedge fund or private equity industry cash in 2016 -- at least not directly. That's because the SEC's so-called pay-to-play rule, implemented in 2010, caps the amount "SEC registered hedge fund advisers" can contribute to sitting state or local officials at $250-$350. Designed to prevent bankers and politicians from exchanging campaign contributions for the lucrative right to manage state pension funds, the rule triggered a Goldman Sachs memo banning certain categories of employees from donating to campaigns that feature a sitting state or local official. The Trump-Pence ticket is specifically listed as an example of a campaign to which employees may not contribute. Are there workarounds? Sure, including gifts to the Republican party. Pence's personal finances are less robust than his campaign coffers. His net worth in 2012 was estimated at $211,511. New documents are no more revealing: Pence's 2016 financial disclosure form reports his $173,860 gubernatorial salary and lists student loans for his children's education as his only liabilities. Multiple Kaine candidacies required millions Tim Kaine has moved relatively quickly between jobs over his political career. He was mayor of Richmond, lieutenant governor and then governor of Virginia, chairman of the Democratic National Committee and finally U.S. senator, the position he still holds, in a span of 18 years. Democrat Tim Kaine of Virginia has had to raise money to run for mayor of Richmond, lieutenant governor and governor, and senator -- and a huge part of his job at the DNC involved harvesting cash for his party. (AP Photo/Chuck Burton, File) For his 2001 lieutenant governor's race, Kaine raised almost $2.4 million, according to National Institute on Money in State Politics records. At the top, his haul included $50,000 from the DNC and $40,000 from Virginia real estate magnate Gerald Halpin. When Kaine ran for governor in 2005, he ratcheted up his fundraising efforts, collecting more than $18 million over the course of the cycle. Like Pence, he benefited from hefty cash infusions from the party, including $1.5 million from the DNC and $685,242 from the Virginia Democratic Party. Kaine also earned $662,964 in unitemized (small) donations and did well with unions, too: the SEIU, Laborers Local 980, Virginia AFL-CIO and IBEW each kicked in six-figure contributions. Among individuals backing Kaine, billionaire Sheila Johnson, who cofounded Black Entertainment Television and now heads Salamander Hotels and Resorts, made six donations worth a total $392,490 that year. Cisco Systems cofounder Sandy Lerner and real estate developer B. Mark Fried each gave Kaine more than $175,000. After leaving Richmond and serving as the chairman of the DNC (where corralling cash was a major part of the job), Kaine ran in 2012 for the Senate seat fellow Democrat Jim Webb announced he would be vacating. Kaine ultimately outraised Republican former Sen. George Allen in the general election, pulling in $18 million to his opponent's $14.5 million. Over the course of his Senate career, Kaine has raised the most cash from lawyers and affiliated PACs, taking in more than $2.7 million. Like Pence, he has benefited from heavy support from retirees, who have given the senator more than $2.1 million. Employees and PACs in the securities and investment industry come in at No. 3 on Kaine's list, having contributed almost $1.1 million. Kaine's top contributor has been JStreetPAC, a liberal pro-Israel group, leads the way. The PAC and individuals earmarking gifts to Kaine through it have provided him with $178,283 during his Senate run and since. Running just behind is the League of Conservation Voters, which also passed along gifts marked for Kaine; it provided $177,129. Employees of Covington & Burling, a D.C.-based law firm, gave more than $100,000. Kaine's net worth, estimated to be roughly $1.45 million in 2014, was far below the Senate average of $10.2 million. The senator's single outstanding liability then was a 15-year mortgage, and his financial reports list his board memberships at the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation and the US-Spain Council. Kaine's income tax returns, released in August, show that he and his wife, former Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton, together earned $313,441 last year. While Kaine was lieutenant governor and then governor, he also accepted more than $160,000 worth of gifts, including vacation lodging, clothes and airfare, Politico reported. While the gifts were properly disclosed and legally permissible under Virginia law, the state's in-kind donation laws recently came into the spotlight when the U.S. Supreme Court in June unanimously overturned former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell's (R) ethics conviction, which stemmed from undisclosed gifts and charges of quid-pro-quo corruption. Pence and Kaine face off at Longwood University in Farmville, Va., tonight at 9 p.m. ET. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Квартальные продажи Eli Lilly превысили прогнозы аналитиков

Американская фармацевтическая компания Eli Lilly & Co представила финансовые результаты за три месяца с окончанием в июне. Так, прибыль составила $747,7 млн или 71 цент на акцию по сравнению с $600,8 млн или 56 центами на бумагу годом ранее. Заметим, что прибыль за исключением некоторых статей сократилась с 90 центов на акцию годом ранее до 86 центов на бумагу, что совпало с ожиданиями рынка. Продажи, тем временем, увеличились на 8,6% г/г и составили $5,4 млрд, тогда как аналитики прогнозировали $5,15 млрд.
