To mandm84 and all, I think you might appreciate some more connect the dots. I'm a newbie on this site.

This is also to try our best to get back to dealing with facts and trying to be truthful...it's tough to do!

We need to sort thru the bright reflective objects that trump tosses in the air for us to chase, and focus on what is the real important subject is. Sort out the bs.

trump, his cabinet, his judges, and republicans are all complicit with their approach to health care, taxes, our country, and our citizens. And I am not speaking of true conservatives, who do not seem 

to have lost their mind over trump, his base, or donors...they still seem to be patriotic and support our country, not trying to destroy it.

trump and gang have lost any concept of normal order or procedures and do not represent their true

objectives, but then throw up an object blaming Dems (or Hillary or Obama)...they cannot take responsibility for their own dishonest solutions or answers.

The big object they keep trying to hide...Russia. They try to hide their contact with Russians, or have

such a terrible memory that they should not be serving in any important decision making capacity.

What does putin have over trump? trump has not said one critical thing about putin. Yet I think, along with our national security agencies, that it is very likely that russia, at putin's direction is interferring with our elections and our country. Why are we putting up with this? And from what I see, I think that there is indirect evidence for their actions. What is trump trying to help putin do to our country? Case in point, and if anyone can show me otherwise, please do. What measures has trump and his administration initiated in order to provide safeguards against russian intrusion? Are they making the net safer, making government computers and programs safer, or communications safer? russia has intruded, is intruding, and will intrude in the future unless we apply an effort to prevent that. Even AG sessions testified that he was not aware of any effort underway...isn't he suppose to be helping to protect us?? 

Instead trump throws out the objects for us to chase: searching for 3 million illegal voters? I hope that he won't break his arm while patting himself on the back for the terrible treatment that he has provided our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands. NFL? Gold Star families? Treatment of

women? He won't benefit from the tax cuts? ...and I'm sure that we can provide more items to put on

that list! He has no empathy to lead our country, or it appears any conscience or sense of truth.

But I do have a suggestion for trump and his supporters, if you like russia so much, then move there!

Good luck. We can get by just great without you. Besides maybe they are looking for a king, or a dictator, or another rich friend in putin's circle of theives...except you probably are not worth as much

as they are.

The USA wants a leader, not someone who runs around making stuff up and calling people names!

And has a sense of trying to be honest. Perfection is not expected, but trying is.

@john258–Thank you!  I’ve said the same a number of times, but RWNJ’s can’t see past their initial greed to see that removal of health care insurance works against their own best interests.

Sad, how some seem to be unable to see beyond the ends of their greedy and shortsighted noses.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

Lets start with this. You have to look at the entire health system before you make a comment on one small part. Here is a fact for you. Everyone in the US has health coverage under different parts of the system. The part that treats the people with the least income or no income and can not pay for it is the ER system. Go to the ER in any hospital and you will get treatment whether you can pay or not. That is by law. That is the most expensive part of the care system. We all pay for it by taxes at the local, state, fed. level. So by what you say we are and having been using a socialistic platform for about the last 100 years. Now you want to cut that so it means closing the ER unless you pay before you are treated, and that means you will let people die in the Streets. I hope most will not agree with you and fight that approach. Medicare costs a lot less to treat a person than the ER care does so we all save money with more people on Medicare. With SS you would throw the older people on to the streets so they can become sick and die. Really great approach but sadly we see the far right Reb. support this approach. The answer is never elect any Reb. to any office until the party gets rid of the fringe far right group, and puts their let them die in the streets approach in the ash can of history.

Now you are starting to get to the real reason that they are pushing thru this “gets uglier as more light is shown on it”. It’s not just cutting taxes but by doing so they will run up a deficit, then say that they have to make budget cuts (which they have already started in the tax cuts), which the cuts will be centered around cutting entitlement programs. How many lives will this impact? Republicans have long wanted this, and start salivating when they speak of it. But just like developing the secret healthcare bill and the secret tax bill, they don’t want to let this dirty little secret out yet. Think about it, within the last ten years have they proposed or passed any people oriented bills which actually help any of our citizens? They seem to have this strange mindset that they have to destroy programs which might help all people, instead of trying to make them better...that’s just weird!!

The CBO take on the Senate abortion bill they call tax reform is that in the next decade, folks earning between $40,000 and $60,000 will pay an ADDITIONAL $1.5TRILLION, while those earning over $1,000,000 will have their total tax burden REDUCED by $3.2TRILLION. The cuts to Medicare and Social Secutiry will not effect the 1% but it's THEIR tax cut that will cause the cuts to Medicare and SS.

 

Amazing how the GOPers have used FAUX and Hate Radio to get the Republican Base to vote for thier own economic collapse by promising to let them keep their guns and allow their churches to get involved in politics.

Marco Rubio said he will not cut his mother's benefits, but he told Wall Street...
