The New York Times has the lowdown on the plan that has been shaking up Washington:

“Senators had to contemplate major changes to the tax bill after a nonpartisan committee found that proposed cuts would not pay for themselves, as Republicans have claimed. On Thursday, the Joint Committee on Taxation said the measure would add $1 trillion to budget deficits over 10 years. One idea is to set the corporate tax rate higher than the 20 percent President Trump has called for.”

NIKE IS GOING ALL IN WITH THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON

Many in the sports world joke that the University of Oregon is already “Nike U” due to the heavy financial influence of Nike founder Phil Knight, but The Oregonian reports that “The university would get more than $88 million in cash and apparel and shoes over 11 years under the deal proposed by Nike, more than double the current contract.”

“The deal illustrates the continued escalation of the arms race among athletic footwear and apparel makers to outfit top-flight university athletic programs. In recognition of the enduring popularity of college sports, sneaker makers are paying ever-larger sums for the right to splash their logo on as many players and playing fields as possible.”
