Gunman’s Vantage Point and Preparations Opened the Way for Mass Slaughter

VideoLas Vegas Shooting: What Can We Learn From the Sound of Gunfire?A New York Times reporter — and Marine veteran — analyzes the barrage that left at least 59 dead.By THOMAS GIBBONS-NEFF and DAVID BOTTI on Publish Date October 2, 2017..Watch in Times Video »embed From his hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock would have looked down upon a crowd of more than 20,000 people, surging to the final sets of a country music festival.He opened fire late Sunday, killing at least 59 people and injuring 527 others in one of the deadliest mass shootings in American history, the authorities said.But what may have seemed like a difficult feat, firing across an urban area and into a crowd from about 500 yards away — the equivalent of several football fields — appears to have been offset by Mr. Paddock’s preparations, which made it possible for him to inflict mass carnage.Law enforcement officials cautioned that their information remained preliminary amid a rapidly unfolding investigation, and it was at times contradictory. But officials said Mr. Paddock established firing positions by smashing a pair of windows in his hotel room. He was armed with at least 23 firearms, the authorities said, including rifles designed to be fired at such distances. He was also perched from a vantage point that increased the likelihood that even errant shots were more likely to strike someone than had he fired them from ground level.Among his weapons, a law enforcement official said, were AR-15-style rifles, a civilian variant of a standard service rifle used by the American military for more than a half-century.The possibility that Mr […]

Democrats Lament Inability to Pass Gun Restrictions: ‘We Are Stuck’

“We cannot let the actions of a single person define us as a country. It’s not who we are. Instead what truly defines us are the acts of heroism we witnessed after the tragedy,” Mr. Ryan said.Mr. Ryan also said the House has no plans to vote on the so-called Hearing Protection Act, which would eliminate a $200 tax on firearm silencers, refund silencer-tax payments back to October of 2015, and ease registration requirements.“That bill is not scheduled now,’’ he said […]

On Washington: ‘The New Washington’: Though Out of Power, Democrats Are Winning the Fight, Pelosi Says

As Republicans last week came up short yet again in their push to repeal the Affordable Care Act — a health care law that she was instrumental in writing and enacting as speaker of the House — Ms. Pelosi feels she is taking good advantage of the place she retained at the negotiating table. By virtue of Democratic unity and Republican disarray, she said, Democrats have been able to shape spending bills to their liking (no border wall, for instance) and hold off Republicans on their attempts to unravel the health care law.Continue reading the main story“That’s another reason I stayed — to protect the Affordable Care Act,” Ms. Pelosi said.“We didn’t win the elections, but we’ve won every fight,” she said about the legislative agenda. “We’ve won every fight on the omnibus spending bill — you know the appropriations bills and the rest. You look at everything, they have no victories!”In her post as House minority leader, Ms. […]

Senate Unveils Budget Blueprint Allowing $1.5 Trillion in Tax Cuts

Those with incomes between about $49,000 and $86,000 would see an average tax cut of $660, raising their after-tax income by 1.2 percent.The analysis said the Republican plan also would provide enormous benefits to corporate America, with a $2.6 trillion cut in business taxes over the next decade. Individual income tax revenue would actually increase by $470 billion over that period, largely as a result of changes in personal deductions and exemptions as well as an increase in the bottom tax rate to 12 percent from 10 percent.“Tax collections would shift dramatically from businesses to individuals,” said Eric Toder, co-director of the Tax Policy Center.The loss of deductions would hit the upper middle class the most, and more than a third of the taxpayers who earn $150,000 to $300,000 would see their taxes go up next year, the report found. They would be hit particularly hard by the repeal of the state and local tax deduction.And all of that would have to be squeezed into a $1.5 trillion budget hole, forcing lawmakers either to scale back cuts, phase them in, find more loopholes to close or identify other taxes to raise.GraphicUnder Trump’s Plan, Tax Cuts Shrink Over Time for Everyone but the RichestThe major findings in a preliminary analysis of the president’s tax plan.OPEN GraphicThe budget resolution released on Friday does foresee a balanced budget within 10 years — but only by assuming trillions of dollars in unspecified spending cuts and projecting higher economic growth than is forecast by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.Republicans are counting on a surge of economic growth to pay for their tax plan, and the Tax Policy Center analysis does not account for those “dynamic” effects. The group’s analysts said that they planned to release another report soon that does account for growth, but that they expected those results to be similar.Continue reading the main storyIn a preview of the partisan battles over the tax legislation to come, Democrats seized the analysis as evidence that talk of populism from Republicans is not to be trusted.“This report on Trump’s tax scam is more hard evidence that the president and his out-of-touch millionaire advisers are executing a middle-class con job,” said Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Finance Committee. “While this administration continues to peddle false claim after false claim, nothing can hide the truth that the only individuals benefiting from this plan are the president, his family and his highflier friends.”Republicans quickly dismissed the analysis, saying the tax cut framework needs detail before it can be accurately assessed. A nine-page proposal for a tax overhaul, announced by Mr. Trump and Republican leaders in Congress on Wednesday, did not include income levels for its three personal income brackets. It left the door open to a fourth level of taxation for high-income taxpayers, and it did not specify the size of an enhanced child tax credit.“This analysis is based on guesswork and biased assumptions designed to promote the authors’ point of view — rather actual detail from a bill that has not yet been written by the committees,” said Antonia Ferrier, a spokeswoman for Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader.The budget resolution, essentially a blueprint for federal revenues and spending for the 2018 fiscal year that begins on Sunday and beyond, lays the groundwork for approving a tax bill using special procedures that would shield it from a Democratic filibuster. Republicans used the same strategy in their failed effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.Senator Michael B. Enzi, Republican of Wyoming and the chairman of the Budget Committee, called the budget resolution “the first important step in providing Congress with the tools it needs to enact tax reform that will grow America’s economy and strengthen hardworking families and small businesses.”Democrats cast the plan as fiscally irresponsible and harmful to the middle class.“The Senate Republican budget is the clearest sign yet that Republicans are intent on pursuing a tax plan that would blow a huge hole in the deficit and stack up debt, leading to cuts in programs that middle-class Americans rely on,” said Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the Democratic leader.

Health Secretary Tom Price Resigns After Drawing Ire for Chartered Flights

Mr. Trump berated Mr. Price in the Oval Office on Friday afternoon for about two hours before heading out to meet with reporters, according to people informed about the meeting. All cabinet travel requests now must be cleared by the White House, they said.The White House’s announcement of Mr. Price’s departure was sparse, with none of the customary thanks for his service; it said simply that he had “offered his resignation earlier today and the president accepted.”In his resignation letter to Mr. Trump, Mr. Price said: “I have spent 40 years both as a doctor and public servant putting people first. I regret that the recent events have created a distraction from these important objectives. […]

McConnell Gambled on Health Care and the Alabama Senate Race. He Lost.

“There is this acute, continued frustration amongst the Republican base at the sluggishness of the Trump agenda in Washington,” said Josh Holmes, a former chief of staff to Mr. McConnell. “That’s not imagined; that’s real.”Mr. Strange lost his primary runoff to Roy Moore, a provocative former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, who made attacking Mr. McConnell a central feature of his campaign.“McConnell has become synonymous with gridlock,” said Richard C. Fording, a political scientist at the University of Alabama who followed the race closely. “I think people here are frustrated, and they have bought into this narrative that Mitch McConnell is to blame, that he’s incompetent, that he’s part of the establishment, that he’s controlled by special interests and synonymous with the status quo.”Allies of Mr. […]
