First topic message reminder :

First on their agenda is their death panels. They should be charged with murder if one patient dies because of the Affordable Care Act Repeal.

The Brain-Dead Republican Congress Gives Themselves, And Their Buddies, Billions Of Dollars

Post by Lurker on Wed Dec 20, 2017 6:25 pm

Corrupt. That’s a pretty tough word. Tough, but how else does anyone explain what the Republicans just did.

In a vote on the Senate floor in the dead of night, the Republicans delivered a giant, gift-wrapped present to big banks like Wells Fargo, giant corporations, and billionaires. And who will pay for this present? Millions of working families.

Most Americans see this bill for what it is: A giveaway to the rich and powerful. But Republicans in Congress didn’t care what working Americans thought. They proved today that they’re not here to work for the people. They’re here to work for the donors who fund their campaigns and Super PACs.

It’s bad enough that the Republicans are handing over billions in giveaways to the rich, but the American people will be paying for generations to come.

We’ve been fighting our hearts out all year to resist and persist – and our work has been powerfully important. But here's the harsh reality: When Republicans control the House, the Senate, and the White House, billionaire megadonors who fund the Paul Ryans and Mitch McConnells of the world will call the shots. That means a tax bill that is a payoff to those donors can breeze through Congress and rig the system even more for the rich and powerful.
Elizabeth Warren

There is plenty of truth in this satire

WASHINGTON—Saying the current disapproval would soon give way to support, House Speaker Paul Ryan was confident Thursday that the American people will warm up to the new tax plan once they realize life is a cruel and meaningless farce. “Although it may not be very popular now, I’m certain that Americans will come around to this new system when they begin to understand the ruthless absurdity of existence,” said Ryan, explaining that once taxpayers see that there is no objective moral framework in the unforgiving chaos of the universe, they will learn to appreciate what this bill actually does. “I think many voters will find a lot in this tax overhaul that they can embrace when it finally dawns on them that they have no agency and it’s futile to resist entropy. We just need to keep hammering home to average folks that our time here on Earth is a joke with no punchline.” At press time, Ryan said that once Americans accepted the brutality and pointlessness of life, they’d be just as amenable to gutting Medicare.

I said back in 2008 that the Republicans are heading down the road to internecine.

"internecine" is a good word to describe these idiotic Republicans. They don't care who or what they destroy just so they get their insane way.

I have no doubt that those heartless scumbags who have trolled NewsFix mercilessly over the years --  the likes of Smellybandit and his good chum Stormee  --  would feel quite at home, and right in their element, if they ever got the chance to wallow over there among the rump end of the US Republican party...

How good people can cling to the sewer-based Republican party baffles me.

All right, it's time for some prognostication. What's the best in the future for Republicans. This nutcase backed into the WH, and you use what they give you. You can't get shit done, and it's nearing the end of the year.

You are associated with the nutcase, so you are going to get your ass kicked in both chambers of Congress next year. What are you gonna do? You steal as much money as you can outta the money room and run like hell.

The Congress that comes in next year is going to be preoccupied with impeachment of the nutcase. You don't care. The only thing you care about is getting that money and running.

Now...if the Democrats were smart, they would start a drive to repeal the 2017 tax cut (the one for the rich)...and call it the people's tax cut.

A reckoning is coming......

Post by Lurker on Tue Dec 26, 2017 5:26 pm

From start to finish, we’ve been fighting. Fighting to protect health care for millions of Americans. Fighting to stop unconstitutional and immoral immigration policies. Fighting to prevent obscene tax breaks for wealthy Republican campaign donors.

I know how hard it is to resist and persist each and every day. It’s exhausting, frustrating, even demoralizing – especially when Republicans jam through corrupt bills in the dead of night. But let me be clear: our fight is never for nothing.

Republicans can pass their corrupt bills, spew their shameless lies and swing their gavel until it falls off the podium. They may have control today – but a reckoning is coming.

We’ve already seen it happen in Virginia, Alabama, and local races across the country: people are ready to stand up to the powerful interests and fight back to level the playing field for working families. With only 11 months until Election Day, that means our re-election fight in Massachusetts is more important now than ever before.

We have a huge end-of-year fundraising deadline this week. After the deadline, the Republicans will look at our 2017 numbers and decide just how hard they’re willing to fight our grassroots team in 2018. So let’s give them something amazing to look at.

We’ve set a huge fundraising goal of $100,000 before Sunday night’s deadline. Please chip in $3 – or whatever you can afford – to join our team of grassroots supporters that will stand up to the GOP and give power back to working across the country.

The Republicans who control the Senate, House and White House have proven time and time again that they aren’t here to fight for working Americans – they work for the millionaires, billionaires, and giant corporations that fund their campaigns and Super PACs. We saw it just last week when they jammed through the terrible tax bill that their donors demanded.

But the people are watching. The voters are paying attention. And if we keep fighting in 2018 – if we stand together – we can win. And when we do, we’ll be one step closer to a democracy where everyone, even the richest and the most powerful, pay a fair share – and where we all work to build a better future for all of our kids.

I will fight and I will give it everything I’ve got. But if we’re going to do this, it’s not going to take one of us, it’s going to take all of us.
