A six-month budget truce stitched together by Congress in March could unravel if Republican leaders vying to replace U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan indulge party conservatives who want to renege on critical parts of the pact.
According to the Treasury Department this year’s United States federal deficit will hit $873 billion, up a dangerous 31.3 percent from last year’s shortfall of $665.8 billion.

U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan deleted a tweet on Saturday cheering a $1.50 increase to a Pennsylvania school secretary's weekly pay because of a $1.5 trillion tax cut after it drew criticism that he was out of touch with ordinary Americans.
Ryan cares more about dismantling the social safety net and advancing the interests of his wealthy donors than he does about helping his constituents or holding this dangerous president accountable.
When it comes to the country’s bills and responsibilities towards its own population, right-wing politicians treat things like deficits as a plaything, alternatively ignoring it or using it as a cudgel. We can see much of the same behavior in the way the Right-Wing tax bill has been playing out.
It's no accident that the 429-page House Republican tax bill specifically takes aim at Democrats and areas that didn't vote for Trump. Petty, petulant and punitive is how this Republican Party rolls. But the next time someone claims Obama divided this country, just ask them about this.

Speaker Ryan's spokeswoman never disputed that the material used against Democratic candidates was “stolen as an act of Russian espionage
"GOP Congress spends a year and a half investigating Clinton emails, but refuses to investigate whether Russia is hacking our election? WTF?"
As if Donald Trump being the nominee didn't make the party a caricature already; now they want to convince the American people that the most important task of government is to investigate an investigation.
Republicans finally revealed their "replacement" health care "reform” that literally robs healthcare from tens-of-millions of Americans.
