CHANGES OF FORTUNE ... REPUBLICANS VOTE DEMOCRATIC in State and local elections ...

There is going to be only one big loser in the Age of Trump, and that loser is, you guessed it, President Donald Trump!

Actually, his best accomplishment is already done. He denied Hillary her fantasy....but we all know that she's going to be the Democratic candidate until she's ten years dead. Democrats talk and talk because they are going to do what they are going to do.

I don't want to sabotage Trump just yet. We probably need to have him deny her plastic unicorn fantasy one more time...but the career Republicans got to go.

A new analysis of the House GOP bill finds that taxes would increase for 25% of filers by 2027. Some groups would fare better than others:(link: http://nyti.ms/2fE0rSv ) nyti.ms/2fE0rSv

"The corporate tax cuts is where the tax cuts really are, and therefore where the economic growth is going to come from. It's a significant rate reduction, thirty-five to twenty percent. Here comes the Senate wanting now to delay it to 2019. That means it's not gonna happen... There's still a year-and-a-half to go before 2019. So somebody can come along and write new legislation next year eliminating the whole thing. That's why it has to be done now, because it can always be undone too..." ---Rush Limbaugh, 10 November 2017

That patently idiotic notion that corporations need a tax break is absurd, the current U.S. corporate tax rate is not impeding corporate profits. Both before-tax and after-tax corporate profits are at a historic high.

From 1980 onward, it started to become clear that the middle class was evaporating. The GOP denied it and most democrats ignored it. Fueling this trend were President Reaganís trickle-down nonsense, the deterioration of union jobs, the shift of manufacturing jobs overseas, and the shift to the knowledge economy that led to the boom of the importing of high-skilled workers to fill the jobs. Our Govít completely failed us on this one. And now, wouldnít you know it, Republicans are at it again . . . Wagnerís Law (named for the 19th-century German economist Adolph Wagner) states that government spending as a share of the economy will increase as nations get richer and their citizens demand more and better public services. This is public policy in other industrialized nations. In the US itís a failure as republicans make sure of that.
