Blackstone President Throwing Swank Party For Nancy Pelosi
Business Insider ^ | Mar. 18, 2010 | Courtney Comstock

Posted on 03/23/2010 10:20:05 PM PDT by bronxville

The NYPost is reporting that Blackstone's president, Tony James, is throwing a party at his house for Nancy Pelosi. Their sources tell the Post that the party is meant to encourage Pelosi to vote against the proposed tax rate increase on carried interest, the profits people make on money they have invested.

Raising taxes on carried interest is a hot topic because carried interests isn't really income, but some people want to tax it as if it were. Currently carried interest is taxed at 15%. The proposed tax rate for carried interest is the same as the income tax rate, 35%.

Raising taxes on carried interest so significantly would do serious damage to hedge funds and PE firms, like Blackstone, because it would deplete money managers' yearly profits. Then again, this could also just be an excuse to throw a swanky party.

Nancy conquered them all right....the people, her employers. She certainly showed them a thing or two.

Does anyone have any photographs of her from the 1960’s? Where was she? What was she doing? Who was she hanging around with? Had she ever traveled to Moscow? Was her thesis Alinski? What do we know about her past?

There are more pictures of Obama on the net during the 1960s/70s/80s than Nancy. Interesting. No pictures...

I’m getting very little as well. I’m beginning to think this woman is an empty shell who had no convictions on anything and just trying to hi-jack a ride on which ever side she can gain fame. I’m beginning to think she’s truly a total sham with absolutely no convictions on anything other than her own mirror’ed self. God help her...God help all of us from this woman.

She then goes on to say, “The President isn’t worth it ... he’s not worth impeaching. We’ve got important work to do.”

Stark then says, “Respectfully, the question is whether or not the Constitution is worth it,” to which Pelosi responds, “Well, yeah, the constitution is worth it if you can succeed.”

That the leading Democrat in the House, and one of the most powerful people in the Democratic Party leadership, could be so dismissive of the Constitution, so seemingly ignorant of the workings of the impeachment clause, and so openly pessimistic and negative about the power of her opposition party, is simply astonishing...

“The Constitution is worth it if you can succeed” thus stated in 1987... Most of what I’m getting is anti-Constitutional...I don’t know how she got there unlike Hillary...

Yes you got it. Blackstone probably made $100’s of million in the last two days alone on their healthcare stocks - drug companies, insurance firms etc..

I'm not so sure... Obama is an empty shell. Pelosi is an empty shell. How do empty shells become dictatorial? The most undistinguished members of congress have more public info that these two. Keep digging...
