Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), In particular and America in general, Lord Please Give Us The Strength To Endure The Next 30 Days!!! Then we will gladly say, “good riddance to bad rubbish. I’am so Angry, A total disregard for us…Mitch McConnell, is no longer fit to be leader of the Senate.

TAX BREAK FOR 3-MARTINI LUNCHES IN THE STIMULUS PACKAGE

The draft language of the emergency coronavirus relief package includes a tax break for corporate meal expenses pushed by the White House and strongly denounced by some congressional Democrats. It appears, in order for the Democrats to push through a deal to get some relief for the pandemic crisis, they had to give Mitch McConnell the three martini lunch tax credit for corporate meals expense, which is estimated to only cost about 1 billion a year.

President Trump has for months talked about securing the deduction — derisively referred to as the “three-martini lunch” by critics — as a way to revive the restaurant industry badly battered by the pandemic.

But critics said it would do little to help struggling restaurants and would largely benefit business executives who do not urgently need help at this time. Some Democrats recoiled at the proposal, though it has also been denounced as ineffective by conservative tax experts as well.

ZERO TO 26 MILLIONS AMERICANS WITH NO FOOD

“Republicans are nickel-and-diming benefits for jobless workers, while at the same time pushing for tax breaks for three-martini power lunches. It’s unconscionable,” said Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee.

The cost to taxpayers of the proposal is not known, though tax experts expect it to not exceed a few billion dollars a year.

Since the 1980s, businesses have only been able to deduct 50 percent of their meal expenses off their federal taxes. A proposal championed by the White House and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) would increase that deduction to 100 percent allowing companies to deduct the full cost of a business meal off their federal taxes.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin included the meal deduction as a White House priority in negotiations, two people with knowledge of matter said. A Treasury Department spokeswoman declined to comment.

In a statement, Scott heralded the legislation as a “pro-worker, pro-restaurant, and pro-small business bill will lead to increased spending in restaurants and more income for staff.” Republicans pointed to support for the measure by the American Hotel and Lodging Association, US Travel, and the National Restaurant Association.

Trump and Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, have been among the most aggressive proponents of restoring the meal deduction.

LET THEM EAT CAKE

At the White House in April, Trump urged that the United States “go back to the original” version of a tax deduction for entertainment and meals.

The president added: “They’ll send their executives, they’ll send people there, and they get a deduction. That is something that will really bring life back to the restaurants; I think make them hotter than before. You know, they used to have it. And when they ended it, it was really never the same. It was never the same.”

During a roundtable discussion in May, Trump brought up the idea unprompted and suggested it would be more important than hundreds of billions in emergency small business loans.

“I think it’s, frankly, more important than even the other things we’re talking about,” the president said of restoring the deduction. “I guess, short term, what you’re talking about, is more important, but long-term, the deduction would be phenomenal.”

Liberal and conservative economists and tax experts have panned the idea.

“Months later it is still bad policy, and still not good economic relief for the current situation,” said Kyle Pomerleau, a tax analyst at the conservative-leaning American Enterprise Institute think tank. “It just should not be in there.”

Divided but not conquered

Running For GA. Senate

GMW: Our Country Has Been Divided, but, We Will Not Be Conquered. Grandmothers, Mothers and Women, Let’s Save Our Country. We are fighting for the soul of our country, traveling- through-the-state-of-Georgia.

GMW: Number 45 and the GOP has lost their way. Our Country is in chaos, and the present administration doesn’t have a clue as to how to fix it. I know the majority of Americans are holding their breath, until January 20, 2021. We have over 11 million positive, and almost 250 thousand deaths to COVID 19, and #45 has invited 2 of Michigan GOP Law-makers to the Oval Office, in his Efforts to alter the voice of American voters. I hope their integrity is not for sale, While the GOP that we once respected, has sold their integrity to #45. If we allow those two Georgia Senate seats to remain with the GOP, we will have co-sign the madness that has beset America. #45 finally allowed a Covid-19 press conference with the professionals, with no questions asked.

GMW, in the other 49 states, each of us has an opportunity to use 3 tools in Our Power Box: God, Love and $Dollars, to ensure our sisters in Georgia, Secure those 2 Senate seats with the power of theirs, their families, communities, cities and state speaking for themes they vote. With God as our guide, together we can accomplish this.

Mitch McConnell, Of the Senate, has had a stimulus package from the House on his desk since May 12, 2020, now congress has gone home for Thanksgiving, with no concerns, for how their Thanksgiving dinner will appear on the table, or the fact that so many American are not sure how long they will have a roof over their heads and essential needs met, and morning the empty seats at their tables this Thanksgiving. We’re praying with you for change, not more of the same.

With our financial support, they will be able to make sure all young persons turning 18 by January 5, 2021, is registered and ready to vote. From the millennials down, the Z Generation 18-29 and the Alpha, 17 turning 18; this is your time to decide for the future of this country and your children. Jon Ossoff is 31 years old, put him in office.

Per Aguilar, a 17 yr. old a founder of: Engaging young voters said’ they’re trying deep canvassing, tapping issues that resonate with young Perdue voters – the economy for instance – and explain how Ossoff’s policies might fit. Aguilar sees momentum from the general election in terms of engaging young voters. “What’s exciting about right now is that we just saw absolutely historic turnout,” he says. In Georgia, some 20% of ballots were cast by voters between the ages of 18 and 29, a state that moved firmly from taken-for-granted Republican stronghold to courted battleground territory in 2020.

Other groups are also making a concerted effort to drive turnout. When We All Vote uses social media and games like Among Us and Kahoot! to share information about how to register or how to request an absentee ballot, says Tiffany Pham, a 16-year-old student activist from Clayton County, Ga.

“I think this is really important to equip the next generation with the most important tool, which is their vote,” Pham says. “Historically, in our country, we’ve always been seen as like the apathetic generation that doesn’t really care. And that’s just simply not true.”
This weekend, Black Voters Matter is launching a “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” bus tour in Georgia. Maybe we can support them. Some rural parts of Ga., For funeral homes, but no hospital. I don’t think the two GOP senators are even aware of this crisis right under their nose.

?This we pray and claim in the name of Jesus?

GMW Handbook for 2020

We’re Being Manipulated

The first case of COVID-19 in the US which was reported on January 22, 2020, since then, the country has reported 3,260,500 cases and 134,581 deaths.

Grandmothers, Mothers and Women (GMW), If we want real change across America, while doing all we can to save our children, families, and country, we must first KEEP THEM ALIVE. We must Get our priorities in order. Each of us is responsible for doing our part, and it starts in each of our homes. We must lead by example: wear a mask; practice social distancing; wash hands often; get tested depending on your movement or travel; avoid crowds; and last, but not least, get to the voting polls on November 3, 2020.

Me, My Grands and Great-grands

All of my grandchildren, from 1 year to 17 years, have been on serious lock down over the past 5 months, and their parents are riding shotgun over them. As I have traveled from state to state, while visiting my sister, brothers and other family members during their health challenges, I followed safety protocols for the protection of myself and others by wearing face masks, gloves and using hand-sanitizer, alcohol sprays, and Lysol. Upon returning home, I always get a Covid-test and quarantine before going around my family or others. I believe we can control this virus if we do our part and listen to updates given by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) health departments, mayors, and the governor.

GMW, America will never be the same again because we all now see the things we have in common are much greater than all the differences. We must make sure that we, along with our children, learn American History—the good, the bad and the ugly. There are no statues of Hitler in Germany because they know the true story. Hitler was a brutal leader who killed more than 10 million people to create a “pure” German society, which resulted in the ruin of Germany at the end of World War II. Throughout America’s educational systems and society in general, it is time for a serious, honest, and complete examination of our history for accuracy and revision.

George Floyd was the sacrificial lamb to wake up America and the world. Americans in all 50 states are protesting the great injustices that have been allowed to exist in this country. While the demonstrations have put focus on our problems, we have to legislate solutions. GMW, we are responsible for making sure our states are addressing problems individually and pursue changes and justice at the national level. We must keep the majority in the House of Representatives, achieve a majority in the Senate, and win the White House in November 2020. We need a majority in the House and Senate to unite America. We must seriously start holding the people we choose to represent us accountable and demand that they do their jobs, or we must make them one-term by voting to remove them from office. Ladies, we MUST realize the value of our power, especially OUR VOTE. Our country must have credible leadership which reflects the entire America landscape – white, black, brown, red, and yellow, without respect to gender or religion.

In the comingv months, we can support and help our next President (Joe Biden) by maintaining a focus on the dying American Middle Class and the issues brought forth in The Poor People’s Campaign, as conducted by Rev. William Barber. The platform demands that we dispel the notion that systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, and the war economy hurt only a small segment of our society. More than 40,600,000 Americans subsist below the poverty line; this report additionally shows that there are close to 140 million people dealing with some combination of these crises every day. Nearly half of our population cannot afford a $400 emergency, which presents a structural crisis of national proportion that ties poverty to things like healthcare and housing. The devastation cuts across race, gender, age, and geography. It has carved a dangerous and deepening moral chasm in America and inflicts a tragic loss of purpose, even among the affluent. Mr. Biden has to address these issues. He needs our votes to win.

This we Pray in the Name of Jesus…Amen?
