On Fox and Friends, Ivanka Trump showed she's as clueless as her father by repeated the widely debunked lie that the American people will now be able to file their taxes on a postcard.
Democrats are getting set to unleash a series of ads that will make Republicans pay a heavy price for supporting the tax cuts for the rich scam.
As the Senate Finance Committee was marking up the Republican tax cut bill, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) caused Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) to explode with rage by telling Republicans that this tax cut isn't really for the middle class. It's for the rich, and Republicans should drop the sarcasm and tell the truth about the tax cut.
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was taken to task by fact checkers for claiming that every taxpayer will get a tax cut.
At his weekly press conference, Paul Ryan to claim that his tax cuts for the rich are not being done for political benefit.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) had the ideal response to how Democrats could live with themselves if they vote against his tax cut plan that would overwhelmingly benefit the wealthy.
The trickle down con is back. The White House Council of Economic Advisers claims - against evidence - that lower corporate taxes incentivize companies to (magically) invest in new machines that would require more skilled workers and those people would (magically) then be paid higher wages.
Trump went after retiring Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee with a personal attack that may have killed the Republican plan to cut taxes.
The President tweeted about a member of his own party:
Senator Bob Corker "begged" me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee. I said "NO" and he dropped out (said he could not win without…
It seems completely illogical that the state can argue that a reduction in education funding was necessitated by the downturn in the economy and the state's diminishing resources and at the same time cut taxes further.
Trump’s economic plan will confer vast monetary gains on the very wealthiest Americans while leaving Trump’s electoral base further behind.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF), has finally conducted comprehensive research and reported what every conscious human being on Earth already knows like they know the Sun rises in the East; GOP trickle-down economics is a certifiable economic disaster that reliably retards economic growth, kills jobs, and increases income inequality.
Scott Walker's budget epitomizes the Koch-Republican "vision for America" and not at all unique among states ruled by Koch-governors with Republican legislatures. In Wisconsin, because Walker has driven the state's deficit over the $2 billion mark with tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy, he intends on slashing yet another $300 million from the University of Wisconsin system over two years, and for fun will make seriously Draconian cuts to health care and food stamps.
Because Republicans depend on "the widespread ignorance of objective reality," their fascist threat to democracy is only succeeding due to the abundance of ignorance and gross stupidity of America's uneducated citizenry. Subsequently, Republicans are building on their success and slashing education funding at a record pace to produce an entire population of stupid conservative voters.
Some people may errantly conclude that Republicans, as typical conservatives, are so set in their ways they are naturally unwilling to change, but although that is a very accurate conclusion, it is not the case when it comes to the nation's deficit.
In his first proposed tax reform legislation as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, deficit hawk Paul Ryan's tax plan benefitting big business and the wealthy will increase the deficit by $100 billion over ten years.
Instead of changing course and helping the majority of the population, Republicans still propose heaping wealth on the rich and increasing taxes on the bottom 90% of the population to complete the utter destruction of middle income earners. According to yet another report they are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams.
Brownback's latest trickle down approach to make up for gross revenue shortfalls "crippling the state's finances" include cutting classroom funding for schools by another $127 million, cutting state payments to pension funds by $446 million, and stealing about $350 million from the state's transportation department funding.
There is nothing as evil, mean-spirited, and pathetic as a mature adult who sees firsthand that something is inherently dangerous to other human beings and should be prevented at all costs, and yet wishes they could do the same thing.
The Chamber of Commerce president gave his state of American business address that was replete with propaganda that the economy is failing because President Obama is not following Reagan's trickle-down economics.
The ground is shaking and the rumblings are getting louder as top congressional Republicans are signaling that they are about to give President Obama what he wants and cave on tax cuts for the rich.
