Re: GOP Healthcare Bill to Reduce Taxes on the Rich
Why else would they want a switch from subsidies to tax credits ?

So insurance becomes less affordable, the numbers of uninsured rise, hospitals lose out... Remind me, how is this an improvement ?

Re: GOP Healthcare Bill to Reduce Taxes on the Rich
Remind me, how is this an improvement ?

More people will die, because they cannot afford health care.

That will reduce the amount paid out in social security (retirement).

That leaves a bigger pool in the social security trust fund.

Their next target will be to loot the social security trust fund.

Yes, I do worry that it might be reality.

Re: This is great.

On 7 May 2015 Trump tweeted : "I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me."

The CBO says that the Republican health plan will cut $880 million from Medicaid over the coming decade.

Trump is supporting the bill.

Releasing his tax returns? That would be a nope.

Trump Travel Ban Part Deux
Well Trump travel ban The Sequel has been halted before it began and so far in two courts. But some parts were left intact and those are among the more frightening.
source

quote:
Left intact, Cox said, were lesser-known provisions, including one that orders Homeland Security and the U.S. attorney general to publicize information about foreign nationals charged with ­terrorism-related offenses and other crimes. He said the provision seems designed to whip up fear of Muslims.

Note it does not say that they may publish such information but rather that they are directed to.

Echos of "The Eternal Jew".

Don't you mean pas de deux?

Of course, that fear mongering is part of the plan, always has been.
