Sen. Bob Menendez: Don’t let GOP take away the student loan interest deduction

Published

on

Flanked by his political allies, including Sen. Cory Booker (D.-N.J.), Garden State Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez spoke out Nov. 3 against the plan by House Republicans to eliminate the tax deduction for interest paid on student loans as part of its tax reform package.

“As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, the Republican tax plan does not solve the problems that working families face in this economy,” said Menendez, who is still on trial in a New Jersey federal courtroom on corruption charges.

The senator said that the GOP’s plan to wipe out the income tax deduction for interest paid on student loans bothered him a great deal.

Mendendez said his own college education was supported by both Pell Grants and student loans.

If he could have deducted the interest on the debt as h was finally getting into a professional part of my life, it would have made facing those challenges easier, he said.

The current tax code allows individuals earning less than $80,000 and couples earning less than $165,000 to deduct up to $2,500 of the interest they pay on student loans.

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist

Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.

Published

New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.

Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.

Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.

More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.

Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.

Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.

Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
