    Default Here Come the Republican Benefit Cuts

    It's like my good friend said on Sunday, what on earth would make people think voting for Trump would be a good thing for workers. A pro business person. And her other question was why on earth would a union person vote for someone like Trump!!!

    First, they run up the deficit with massive tax giveaways for millionaires and Wall Street; then they use the deficit as an excuse to cut benefits for working people.

    This is what the Republican tax scam is all about. Anybody who’s been paying attention should have seen this coming a mile away. The only surprising thing is that they’re not even waiting for their tax bill to run up the deficit before they start demanding benefit cuts.

    Last month, House Republican Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) announced, "Congress will turn next year to spending cuts to try to lower the deficit…that’s the second step after cutting taxes."

    Yesterday Ryan said, "We’re going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit." Just to be clear, by "entitlement reform," Ryan means cutting Medicare and Medicaid benefits.

    Why would Ryan want to cut health benefits? Yesterday he claimed that, "Frankly, it’s the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt” and “that’s where the problem lies, fiscally speaking."

    Next question ...
    Why would any women vote for Trump, with multiple accusations of sexual impropriety's, and a recorded tape describing lewd and "locker room" talk ?

    Hmm where to start?
    Immigration, a flood of labor driving down wages?
    Trade TTP, Nafta...Paris agreement
    You can go on and on

    Here is some facts, after Obama was Elected the people push back. Every Election led to a bleeding of Democrat seats.

    Trump, accused by the same people that said a Stained Dress is nothing but a private affair and has nothing to do with leading the country.

    Not to offend my friend ABFwife but this prior to being elected sexual harassment stuff is getting out of hand. Everyone knew what Trump was before he was elected. He was never charged or tried for any of those past accusations. As the president he hasn't committed any impeachable offenses. I'm not defending his politics but lets get on with it. Fighting ISIS is good, Cutting Medicare and Medicaid benefits is bad. Draining the swamp is good, replacing them with his billionaire Goldman Sachs buddies is bad.

    I want Trump to succeed in fulfilling his campaign promises. But he sure seems to have a strange way of going about it.
