How Trump And The GOP Stuck It To First Responders With Their Tax Scam Bill

Donald Trump campaigned as the candidate of “law and order,” and catered shamelessly to police officers and other first responders. But a section of the tax scam bill he just signed proves that he and the Republican party truly are liars and hypocrites. The section of the bill in question allows wealthy corporate CEOs can […]

GOP Tax Bill Is So Bad That Republicans Admit They’ll Need Another One To ‘Fix’ It

As a rule, when Congress writes and passes a piece of legislation, they try to work out any possible problems with the bill before they actually pass it. But when it comes to the GOP tax bill, it appears they’ll go full steam ahead, even though they realize there are major problems with the so-called […]

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Asked Twitter For Reaction To Trump’s Tax Plan – That Was A BIG Mistake

For some strange reason, President Trump and members of his administration seem to have a bizarre need to take whatever happens to be wandering through their normally empty brains and splatter it all over social media.

2018 GOP Budget Will Feature Massive Cuts To Programs For the Poor, The Disabled, And Veterans

If there’s one thing Republicans excel at (other than lying and making excuses for their criminal behavior), it’s finding new ways to screw the poorest and most vulnerable among us. If you’re poor, have a disability, or cannot afford decent healthcare, it must be your fault, and you shouldn’t expect any help from the government. House […]

Former Wall Street Exec On Trump Tax Plan: ‘This Is A Tax Break For Donald Trump’ (VIDEO)

On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin presented the Trump administration’s “tax reform” plan, even though there’s no reform, only more trickle down voodoo economics calling for massive tax cuts for business and the rich.

Disappointing Jobs Report Issued; Fox News Morons Call It ‘Most Successful Day’ Of Trump’s Term

If you want to find genuine “fake news” day and night, you need look no further than Fox News. Fox specializes in the big lie, exaggeration, and the downright absurd. Such was the case Friday morning shortly after the jobs report for March was issued by the Department of Labor. It showed that only 98,000 […]

Paul Krugman Explains Why So Many Trump Supporters Choose To Vote Against Their Own Self-Interest
