Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin flew on Michael Milken's private plane. He's also tried to get President Trump to pardon Milken, who pleaded guilty in 1990 to securities fraud and spent two years in prison. @arappeport reports

I can't go to the panel on "Tax Advice in the Age of the 24-Hour News Cycle" because I am living the 24-hour news cycle.

For those of you who followed me when this was an all-taxes-all-the-time account ... here is some Hot Pass-through Content:

These problems are compounded by the gender imbalances of econ journalism, btw.

Every economics journalist has a story of being math-splained by an economist.

Those stories are far, far worse for women in econ journalism -- and men don't get the bonus creepy personal questions women do -- as this brave @byHeatherLong story details. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/please-listen-to-us-what-its-like-being-female-at-americas-biggest-economic-conference/2019/01/18/4809c294-1b47-11e9-88fe-f9f77a3bcb6c_story.html?utm_term=.d94ce5cdc993 …

The federal shutdown is hurting the U.S. economy. It's hurting Americans' economic optimism. And it's hurting Trump -- the public has soured on his economic policies. w/ @bencasselman

Proposal: Trump and Pelosi end the shutdown by inviting Bryce Harper to deliver SOTU, banning him from leaving D.C. (As a Dodger fan, I oppose this proposal)

Senior admin official tells me "it's just not true" that Trump officials have raised possibility of lifting China tariffs to speed a trade deal. @bobdavis187 reporting Mnuchin has done so:

We're like two days away from no aircraft being allowed to leave DC under any circumstances until the shutdown ends, aren't we?

Since President Trump took office, real median weekly earnings are up 2.6% for men. For women, they're basically unchanged. (Per BLS)

A scene in DC, January 2019:

I've seen signs like this all around DC... in LOCAL restaurants, not in the big chains. A reminder that small businesses really care about their neighbors.

The new West Wing: “you’re all adults. You all have relationships with him.” Mulvaney takes off the reigns. @maggieNYT and me

Our retirement savings are better off thanks to Jack Bogle. https://lnkd.in/g84ar2a 

Now that he's gone, I think Jack Bogle would have us all raise our savings by a percentage point, rebalance our portfolios and then not look at them again for six months in his honor. How much more money do so many of us have because of him? His memory is a blessing.

Why don't unpaid federal workers walk off the job en masse? https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/16/us/politics/shutdown-federal-workers-strike.html …

Re: Federal workers like their jobs/mission-driven: Federal government workers are about 2 percentage points less likely to quit than private-sector workers.

If you underpaid your taxes last year, but not by *that* much, Treasury says it has you covered.

I wonder if the TSA workers at DCA understand how much power they have right now.
