  • This is how great Trickle Down Economics works:

    64% of respondents in a Gallup poll say that they didn't receive any increase in their take-home pay.
    Only 12 % report it helped their financial situation a lot.

    Who would have thought
    But, of course, as long as the richest 5% got huge gains, it is mission accomplished for Trump and the GOP ... nothing else matters

    • Only the Republicans can save Medicare from the diabolical socialist machinations of the Liberal Communist Illegal-Migrant-Monger Demon-crats!

      A rare opinion piece from President Trump on US healthcare and "open-borders socialism" has caused controversy. What's the White House strategy?

      Donald Trump didn't write anything that he hasn't said at campaign rallies over the past few weeks.

      But making those allegations in a major American newspaper like USA Today raises the attacks to a dramatic new level for a US president.
      ........
      Now, a half-century later, Mr Trump says he's defending Medicare - which has become one of the most popular government-run programmes - against Democratic plans to destroy it by expanding its coverage to all Americans.

      "If Democrats win control of Congress this November, we will come dangerously closer to socialism in America," Mr Trump writes. "Government-run healthcare is just the beginning."
      ......
      The president also finds a way to work in his favourite topic, immigration, warning that "open-border Democrats" will allow undocumented migrants to flood into the nation for free healthcare, swamping medical centres and denying care to American taxpayers.
      ....
      The Trump administration is backing a Republican lawsuit that challenges the legality of Obamacare's mandate that all insurance plans offer coverage for pre-existing conditions.

            Trumps reaction:
            He wanted to know who drew it

            https://www.washingtonpost.com/ampht...mpression=true

            What "it" means is unclear, but considering Trumps allergy towards written text (of which the report contained 700 pages), it may be he means the few diagrams and pictures it contains.

            Considering the fact that even the reports shortened version for policymakers was 33 pages long (and therefore by far surpasses Trumps attention span limit of 1 Din A4 page with a maximum of 10 bullet points), it can be doubted that Trump understood anything of it

              Diarrhea down economics is what I call it. The rich get the benefits and we are stuck with cleaning the mess including the **** all over the floors.

                      Because of the lipstick, Trump knew it was a picture of some sort of female and, since he couldn't figure out how to molest it, lost interest...

                      • When it comes to rape, almost no one is falsely accused of that.
                        Might want to ask the whole Duke Lacrosse team. I'd doubt they would agree.

                          I'm probably the guy you want to ask that. I've actually worked with Bissonnette, the lady in Toronto who was assaulted. We're all closely watching this case. It's the first time that a pro abort has faced criminal charges for assault in Canada. He's facing 8+1 assault charges and a bunch of mischief charges. Could get anywhere from 2 years to 6 months, due to triggering all the aggravating factors. Unexpected, unprovoked, prior assaults showing consistent behavior, escalating assaults, and she is a pregnant lady.
