Skip to comments.Blackstone President Throwing Swank Party For Nancy Pelosi
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.
Excellent questions April. Let’s do some digging.
Flowers in her hair.... flowers everywhere.... I love the flower girl....Let’s get to work, Comrade!
Does she/ did she, report ALL of her income to the IRS? All of it? For all years? Well now, let’s just check into that!
I’ve gotten to a link with Karim Aga Khan...he’s this guy...
Aga Khan Development Network -
There’s lots going on we don’t know about...yet...but we’re getting there...and when we do there’ll be hell to pay. All I know is that there’s a lot of them lining their pockets with our money. They need to be stopped!!! Let’s also look into the Aga Khan and what he’s got in store for us...
I’m finding a long line of Pink in her family. Trinity College in 1962?
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...
Sorry I don’t understand - what do you mean “the list”?
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..
