Why does the GOP want to cut the super rich’s taxes while raising taxes on the middle class?

Here’s one question that every Republican at every town hall needs to be asked ASAP The GOP’s nameless Affordable Care Act “replacement” has been leaked after reportedly being pulled for review by the CBO because it was about to be scored as not adding any coverage over straight repeal and the numbers look atrocious.

I honestly don’t believe that Trump voters want to take Nathaniel’s Medicaid

Some measured optimism for the Trump Era from the great John Dingell

Some measured optimism for the Trump Era from the great John Dingell

“He’s going to be amazed with what he can’t get away with. And you will too.” Institutions are all that Americans can rely on now to protect us from Trump’s sleep-starved, anti-democratic impulses. And John Dingell is an institution. That’s the thesis of my argument in USA Today that my former representative in Congress should be named to give the […]

REMINDER: No one knows how to beat Donald Trump — yet

We know about as much about beating Trump as Ted Cruz — a Canadian who made an alliance with a birther Until the last drip of opium hits my bloodstream, I shall be eternally grateful to the organizers and participants of last Saturday’s Women’s March.

REMINDER: The GOP wants to replace health insurance for 32 million Americans with a sad slogan

REMINDER: The GOP wants to replace health insurance for 32 million Americans with a sad slogan

Why would the GOP blindly take on the political risk of uninsuring tens of millions? Tax breaks, of course. It’s obvious why some Republican donors are beyond eager to get the Repeal part of the “Repeal and Replace” of Obamacare out of the way as soon as humanly – or inhumanly – possible.

Donald Trump explains why it’s okay to call Donald Trump a liar

“That wouldn’t have been true, but I would have said it anyway.” Donald Trump’s greatest asset is our good intentions. It may be his only asset that he hasn’t mortgaged. Who knows? We haven’t seen his tax returns. The latest example of Trump benefiting from the media’s fixation on the wrong hand in the sleight of hand trick is the […]

Why Democratic politicians shy away from addressing race

Racism hurts everyone and until we start pointing that out, we can’t fix the economy Donald Trump isn’t going to give up “identity politics” — but some on the left think Democrats should about a “post-identity liberalism” in order to focus on winning over those 70,000 mostly white voters who gave Trump his narrow wins in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan, […]
