Pathetic rewrite of our history. The history I learned in school was white washed, this is just blatantly false.
History Channel coming from the left with facts. But if you really want to know the trouble we’re in, read a few comments from their thread. Low info delusional right wingers who believe all these new billionaires earned their money. Lots of folks becoming vacuums for surplus labor.
Cringeworthy. Trump, his administration and appointees will go down in history as the least competent of all time.
What you are about to see is Senator John Kennedy, a Republican I might add, ask the most basic questions imaginable of men Donald Trump has nominated to become federal judges.
They’ve never tried a case. They hardly even understand the law.
If you work for a living, your taxes are going up under the GOP / Trump tax plan.
“It raises another $1.3 trillion by going after deductions for state and local taxes, mortgage interest, charitable contributions, interest on student loans, medical expenses, teachers’ out-of-pocket expenses for paper and pencils for students, and a bunch of other nickel-and-diming of the middle class. No change drawer in the car, couch cushion, or plastic piggy bank is going untouched in the hunt for money to pay for the tax cut. “
The biggest tax hike in American history is being used to pay for the biggest tax cut.
For the first time in United States History since Labor Secretary Francis Perkins urged Franklin Delano Roosevelt to include Universal healthcare in the Social Security Act of 1935 (The only plank that Francis Perkins demanded of FDR if she was to become Labor Secretary that did not get through) Full Medicare For All is starting to become a real possibility.
You are going to hear arguments from ALL Republicans and many Democrats that “Capitalist Market based Solutions are best”
This is erronious to anyone who understands the history of Capitalism and has read Economist Micheal Hudson, the original Classical Economists like Adam Smith said that you needed to get rid of the Parasetic element in the economy for it to work efficiently.
All “For-Profit” Insurance of any type is parasetic because it drains income from Workers and Firms into the pockets of Idlers that do nothing.
A Publically funded system through Taxation is much more efficient as there is no profit motive.
