I was one of them.
“More Americans voted in 2020 than in any other presidential election in 120 years. About 67% of eligible voters cast ballots this year, but that still means a third did not.
That amounts to about 80 million people who stayed home. …”
“The Trump era has been wildly lucrative for pretty much anyone who’s been invested in markets. Schwarzman has seen his personal fortune roughly double to $20 billion. Big policy wins, especially around taxes, suggest that his fealty to a man he’s known since the 1980s has paid off for him and his industry. That support was still on display two weeks ago, when Schwarzman questioned some vote-counting totals as Trump embarked on an unprecedented effort to subvert the election. …
Schwarzman said in Monday’s statement that the outcome of the Nov. 3 vote was “very certain today and the country should move on.”
“I supported President Trump and the strong economic path he built,” Schwarzman said. “Like many in the business community, I am ready to help President-elect Biden and his team as they confront the significant challenges of rebuilding our post-Covid economy.”
It’s a relationship that’s paid off. The Trump years — which in 2017 and 2018 also saw Republicans control both chambers of Congress — have been very good for the firm and Schwarzman personally.
The December 2017 tax law kept the controversial carried interest loophole for investments of three years or longer — a boon for private equity, and a rule change that Schwarzman personally backed, according to a person familiar with the matter.
“The tax reform bill increased the personal tax rates of every senior Blackstone executive given the near-elimination” of the deduction for state and local taxes, said Anderson, the Blackstone spokesman.
Neither of the two parties represent my views.
The same billionaires like Steve Schwarzman who bought Trump will buy Joe Biden.
