Republicans are Finding out that it isn’t Possible to Make a More Conservative Version of the Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, is as conservative a legislation as you could get. Although that is the healthcare bill’s greatest problem, it is also the bill’s greatest strength. It can’t and it won’t be replaced. Republicans are trying to replace it. But with what? Anything more conservative than Obamacare is cruel. The only thing Republicans could come up with isn’t even healthcare. Trumpcare is a tax plan, that takes Medicare from senior citizens and… Keep Reading

70% of Trump Real Estate has Sold to LLCs in the Past Year, According to USA Today,

LLCs are buying up Trump properties like hotcakes. Why? During the campaign, Trump brushed aside all concerns about conflicts of interests. Never before have we had a president with such a far reaching empire of hotels and properties. In fact, his empire is so enormous, that it is impossible to determine every private company that he may have some financial linkage to. In regards to his properties, during the campaign, his opponents remarked how easy… Keep Reading

Trump’s Tax Plan is a Mirror Image of Brownback Plan that Destroyed Kansas

About a year ago, I wrote an article about Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback’s experiment. Brownback speculated that massive tax cuts would lead to unrivaled job growth as well as boosting government revenue. This was such a big republican experiment! After all, tax cuts are the only thing Republicans care about. Just look at President Trump’s proposed budget and healthcare. Both of them are just a massacred collection of slashed benefits and programs. Everything from healthcare for… Keep Reading

Trump’s Budget Will Starve the Very Supporters who Stood Outside His Rallies for Hours in the Rain

Trump’s budget will make most of his supporters regret their presidential decision. Trump is in the White House today because he told his supporters what they wanted to hear. The majority of these supporters are from regions in the country with immense unemployment. Lack of education, drug abuse, starvation, and scarcity of jobs are prevalent in these areas. Everywhere from the rural Southeast to abandoned factory towns to Indian reservations, Donald Trump was perceived as… Keep Reading

Where in the World is Rex Tillerson?

Rex Tillerson is a lot of things however, he is not a politician. Trump’s nomination for Secretary of State said at first, that he didn’t want the job. He conducts his appointed position in secrecy. He was the first Secretary of State to make a foreign trip without any reporters. Tillerson spends more time dodging reporters than meeting State department employees. “What I’m told is that there’s this long tradition that the Secretary spends time… Keep Reading

Republicans Deliver Another Smashing Victory for Business Owners, While Douching Everyone Else

Trump built his campaign around the middle class. He promised them the moon. However, all they got were lumps of coal in their stockings. Judging by the most recent republican legislation, life is about to get much tougher for the same working class that supported Trump. Republicans just passed a measure that will certainly anger every member of the working class. Two days ago, republicans passed a measure that will allow employers to give workers… Keep Reading

Andrew Puzder, who Withdrew from Trump’s Nomination, Might Have Been the #1 Worst Choice for Labor Secretary

When Andrew Puzder bowed out of contention for Trump’s Labor Secretary, he slipped out of the limelight. Puzder returned to his CKE restaurant empire, in which he used to be CEO of. He continued battling unions on raising minimum wages, he continued his quest to replace his workers with robots, and best of all, he continued employing illegal immigrants. Imagine that! Our Secretary of Labor, secretly employing illegal immigrants, to save a few dollars a… Keep Reading

Trump Thumbs his Nose at Every Farmer that Voted for Him, While Getting Rid of Obama Legislation Designed to Protect them from Mega Agribusiness

On April 22, a massive antitrust rule affecting the agribusiness was supposed to go into effect. Obama pushed this legislation just days before leaving office. However, last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture decided to delay the implementation of the law until Oct. 19. This delay was a major bummer for every American farmer. At the same time however, the delay was a tremendous victory for the agribusiness industry leaders. Ironically, Trump’s nomination for secretary of… Keep Reading
