Trump's Abysmal Response to the Puerto Rican Crisis is What Racism Looks Like in 2017

This is what "Make America Great Again" really means and it's ugly.

Republican "Tax Reform" is Merely Code for More Redistribution of Wealth Upward

Apparently, our wealthiest citizens are struggling and all Americans should devote even more resources to their upkeep, or as the book title suggested, "Pity the Poor Billionaire."

Pigs at the Trough

Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, perhaps for a reason. The idea that the GOP is the party of fiscal responsibility is a joke. They are shills for corporations and the ultra-wealthy, with their endless gluttony. This is the party that wanted a congressional investigation for $16 muffins at an Obama conference, yet Tom Price wasted over $1 million of taxpayer funds on private jet travel in a few short months (and never even offered to reimburse the taxpayers for his wife's seat.) As we've seen, time and again, gluttony and hypocrisy are the cornerstones of Republican leadership.

It doesn't take a genius to see how damaging and destructive the Republican Party has become to the health, welfare, and safety of us all.
