WASHINGTON (AP) — Jubilant Republicans pushed on early Wednesday to the verge of the most sweeping rewrite of the nation’s tax laws in more than three decades, a deeply unpopular bill they insist Americans will learn to love when they see their paychecks in the new year. President Donald Trump cheered the lawmakers on, eager to claim his first major legislative victory.The Senate narrowly passed the legislation on a party-line vote, 51-48, after midnight with protesters interrupting with chants of “kill the bill, don’t kill us” and Vice President Mike Pence repeatedly calling for order. Upon passage, Republicans cheered, with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin among them.The early morning vote came hours after the GOP rammed the bill through the House, 227-203. But it wasn’t the final word in Congress because of one last hiccup.Three provisions in the bill, including its title, violated Senate rules, forcing the Senate to vote to strip them out. So the massive bill was hauled back across the Capitol for the House to vote again on Wednesday, and Republicans have a chance to celebrate again.Hours earlier, House Speaker Paul Ryan, who has worked years toward the goal of revamping the tax code, gleefully pounded the gavel on the House vote. GOP House members roared and applauded as they passed the $1.5 trillion package that will touch every American taxpayer and every corner of the U.S. economy, providing steep tax cuts for businesses and the wealthy, and more modest help for middle- and low-income families.

He and Collins were allowed to stay home after preliminary tests indicated there was no public threat.Collins and her staff have been subjected to threats over her decision to back Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.Collins tells WABI she is not going to live her life any differently and will not be intimidated or live in fear.She says she first learned of the letter in photos sent from her husband. Her husband and their Labrador retriever, Pepper, were both quarantined for a time.
As the partial government shutdown drags past its one-month anniversary, the closure’s impacts are spreading beyond furloughed and unpaid federal employees and hitting the general public.In Clark County’s private sector and network of volunteers, the ongoing shutdown is starting to leave a mark.Without institutional support from the U.S. Forest Service, restoration efforts in the Columbia Gorge have stalled. Without approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, local breweries can’t market new beer products across state lines. With food stamp programs facing limbo in March, the region’s food banks are wondering how their resources might handle some strain.And with federal employees facing their second consecutive missed paycheck on Friday — the first time that’s happened in the country’s 38-year history of budget-related shutdowns — the private sector might take a hit in the form of money not spent. When people aren’t sure when their next paycheck will arrive, they’re not taking their families out to dinner.“People are feeling pain, and some businesses are going to lose some revenue that they’re probably never going to get back,” said regional economist Scott Bailey.The ripple effectLong-term projects of “nonessential” federal employees are starting to suffer.The Pacific Crest Trail Association, which organizes volunteer restoration efforts of public lands, had to cancel its scheduled excursion into the Columbia Gorge to help repair the devastation from 2017’s Eagle Creek Fire.

Barcelona loanee Gerard Deulofeu has claimed that the club do not want him to return and has hinted that he will be making his stay at Watford a more permanent one at the end of the seasonThe Spanish forward is a product of Barcelona’s youth academy but has struggled to establish himself in the senior side among the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.After two loan spells with both Everton and Sevilla, Deulofeu completed a permanent move to the Premier League side in 2015.However, the 24-year-old only found the back of the net four times in his 46 appearances for Everton and was re-signed by Barcelona in 2017 after a loan spell with AC Milan.Deulofeu has struggled with recurring injury troubles in his recent loan spell with Watford this time and has now claimed that he is not wanted back at the Nou Camp.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“It’s clear that I will not be returning to Barca,” Deulofeu explained on Cadena Ser (via Football-Espana).“I do not think the Coach would want me back at Barca and I have been told by Watford that I am wanted, so it could be that I stay at the club.“I cannot say what will happen and we must wait but now I’m back from my injury (a fractured metatarsal) and now I hope to finish the season strongly.“I need to remain calm and make the right decision but a Barca return is not likely.”
AS Roma president James Pallotta has hit out against the “embarrassing” decisions that the referee made in their defeat against Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions LeagueThe Giallorossi came narrowly close to repeating their shock comeback victory against Barcelona at the Stadio Olimpico in the previous round by defeating Liverpool 4-2 in the return leg on Wednesday.Two late goals from Radja Nainggolan gave Roma hope that they could produce a miracle comeback, but they ultimately fell short with the visitors holding on for a 7-6 aggregate win.But things could have gone differently for the Serie A side had Edin Dzeko not been wrongly ruled offside earlier in the game and they were then later denied a clear penalty when Trent Alexander-Arnold handled Stephan El Shaarawy’s shot in the box.“It is very clear VAR is needed in the Champions League because you just can’t let stuff like this happen,” said Pallotta, as reported on Sky Sports.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“You can all look at it yourself. Dzeko in the 49th minute wasn’t offside and he gets taken down by the goalie; the 63rd minute was a handball that was obvious to everyone probably in the world except people on the pitch; the 67th minute [Patrik] Schick gets taken down in the box.“I know it is difficult to referee but it is really embarrassing that we lose on aggregate like that.“By the way, it should have been a red card which would have been 10 men in the 63rd minute.“Liverpool is a great team, congratulations going forward, but if they don’t get VAR in the Champions League stuff like this is an absolute joke.”
During a press conference ahead of Manchester United’s match vs Juventus, Paul Pogba wanted to clear the air with Jose Mourinho.So much has been said about the relationship between Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, both men really did have major differences at the start of the season.But as the season progressed and they started to understand each other a little bit more, manager and player finally seem to have reached common ground and they are starting to get positive results for the squad.The test they have this Wednesday will be the most difficult of the whole season, but that will be only the start of a gruesome week for the Red Devils as they get ready to visit Etihad Stadium next weekend to play against Manchester City.Pogba needed to come out and clear things about his alleged bad relationship with Jose Mourinho, a smart move on his part because the squad currently cannot afford to have any distractions that will tamper with their aspirations to keep improving in every single competition they play.Pogba has also proved that he is committed to the cause, he has led the team to good results lately and is already shaking off the criticism coming from the fans and an important part of the press.We’re #MUFC – we fight until the end 👊 pic.twitter.com/x5F46GXwOi— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 3, 2018“I would classify it as a good relationship between the coach and the player, it’s the same way as everybody,” said Pogba this Tuesday via Sky Sports.“I’m just the player, I do what he tells me to do because he’s the boss, he’s the manager. I listen and that’s it. I enjoy it. I listen and do it with happiness.”“I’m still playing and I’m happy to play. The manager is the one who chooses who will be captain.”“If he takes the armband it doesn’t change anything for me – I just want to play, perform, that’s my job and give my best for everybody, for the fans the club, that’s it. It didn’t affect me. Nothing changed really.”“Choosing to come back to Manchester United was my choice. Juventus were playing Champions League and Manchester were playing Europa League. I knew, first of all, I wouldn’t play Champions League and I was very happy.”Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.“I made my choice and don’t regret it at all. I know Manchester the last few years are not being at the top but I came back just to help the team and try to come back at the top so we are on the way.”“We have a lot of goals so, for me, no it’s not strange. It’s a choice and I don’t regret it all. I’m very happy to come back to Manchester United and wear a shirt and everything. I’m sure we will come back to our best,” he added.Great result, up to the next one 👊🏾 @ManUtd #MUFC pic.twitter.com/Je1Ge5OcDv— Paul Pogba (@paulpogba) October 28, 2018“Do I look sad? I’m happy. Like I said again, I’m happy to wear the shirt, I’m really happy to come back to Manchester United wearing this shirt playing for this team, this big club,” said Paul.“Obviously when you play in a big club like that there is always talk about this club. We know anything can go on but on the pitch always happy, always with a smile, fighting for my teammates’ club and fans. That’s what I do and I’m really happy to do that,” he concluded.Manchester United is about to play against Juventus in Torino, where they will try to avoid getting one step closer to an early Champions League elimination and also attempt to defeat one of the most competitive clubs in European football today.Paul Pogba will also get a lot of mixed feelings for this match, as he faces his former club and is convinced that the Juventus fans will give him a warm welcome after the incredible spell he lived with the Vecchia Signora.Pending on what actually happens during the game at Juventus Stadium, there is no doubt that the absolute favorite to win this match is the Italian club but Manchester United is well-known for surprising top squads when they least expect it under Jose Mourinho’s tutelage.A look back at today’s #UCL training session ahead of Juventus v #MUFC! 👊 pic.twitter.com/6B75VWiQal— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 6, 2018Who will win this Champions League match on Wednesday, Juventus or Manchester United?

Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard is in awe of teammate David de Gea after his impressive saves helped them to a 1-0 hard-fought victory at Spurs.De Gea put in a stellar performance at Wembley on Sunday as he pulled off a series of brilliant saves to deny Spurs an equalizer after Marcus Rashford gave United the lead just before the break.The Spaniard denied Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Heung-min Son in spectacular fashion with both his feet and hands in the second half.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He was excellent – but it was a normal day for him,” Lingard told the club’s website, praising De Gea.“When they looked like scoring, he saved us. We see that in training and it pays off when it comes to the big games.“With some of his saves, you’re like ‘oh my God’. ”He’s one of the best keepers in the world, if not the best. Having a keeper like that gives you extra confidence.”

Hence a strong foundation was laid by persons like Eugenia Lockhart, Mary Ingraham, Hon. Doris Johnson and others. As a result of their labour and sacrifice, women voted for the first time in 1962.”She said the work was continued by Janet Bostwick, Cynthia Pratt, Dame Ivy Dumont, Italia Johnson, Dame Joan Sawyer, Loretta Butler-Turner and wives of Bahamian prime ministers stood with their husbands and ensured that the voices of women were heard.“We live in this strong house built by women and having regard for their labour and sacrifice, we simply cannot come down,” said Minister Rolle.She declared that the women of The Bahamas are doing a great work and urged them to continue to work together to build strong women, strong families and strong communities.
