House passage of the Republican tax overhaul bill on Thursday creates a new problem for the GOP — preventing hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to federal spending under a 2010 law. The Pay-As-You-Go Act, enacted when Democrats were in the majority on Capitol Hill, requires automatic cuts if the total effect of legislation passed by Congress in one session adds to the federal deficit.
Wednesday’s news that Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray plans to resign by the end of this month was met with predictable jubilation from Republicans who have frequently criticizedÂ his management of the young agency throughout his tenure. Democrats who have supported Cordray, however, made it clear they will expect President Donald Trump to name a replacement who shares at least some of their priorities on consumer financial issues.
Portman’s amendment would cut federal excise taxes on domestically produced beer and distilled spirits and allow greater access to a credit for the wine excise tax, which ranges between $1.07 and $3.40 per gallon. Under current law, the per-barrel excise tax rate for beer is $18, but small brewers can access a $7-per-barrel rate for their first 60,000 barrels if they produce fewer than 2 million barrels every year.
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".
