There's an easy way to tell the Republican tax plan from the Republican health-care plan. The first one would cut the corporate tax rate to help mostly wealthy investors, and pay for some of that by cutting health-care spending for the poor and the middle class. The second one, on the other hand, would cut health-care spending for the poor and the middle class to pay for the capital-gains tax cuts it would give to mostly wealthy investors. See the difference?
The Federal Reserve has ones of the best problems it could right now: Inflation isn't supposed to be this low when unemployment is this low as well. It's pretty simple. When almost everyone who wants a job has one, companies have to compete over workers by offering them higher pay. Which, if it goes on long enough, will eat into their profits enough that they have to raise prices too. Wage inflation, in other words, will eventually turn into price inflation.
If it's possible to make a good decision that also makes no sense, President Trump has just done that. Jerome Powell, who goes by the nickname Jay and is Trump's choice to be the next Federal Reserve Chair, is a perfectly defensible pick. He's worked on Wall Street, in the Treasury Department and, most recently, as a Fed governor, where he's been on the right side of just about every economic debate the past five years.
Instead it’s just “Democrats say this, and Republicans say that, and look at them breaking decorum while they argue!"
It’s a disservice to readers to not tell them who the official budget scorekeepers think is right.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
