Fake campaign promise by Trump to lower taxes has reduced his Presidency to swimming in the swamp

“If you’re single and earn less than $25,000 per year, or married and jointly, and jointly earn less than $50,000 – so very important – if you’re single and make less than $25,000 or married and jointly earn less than $50,000, you’ll not pay any income tax. Nothing.” – Donald Trump

@2:00 – Less than $25,000 or jointly less than $50,000, pay no taxes

In January President Trump took office and almost immediately lowered the benefits of his “middle class” tax plan. Suddenly, the $25,000 and $50,000 standard deductions promised on the campaign were slashed 40% to just $30,000 and $15,000. Continue reading →

Kochs paid Romney; now he pushes Rubio/Kasich

Mighty Mite Romney is using robo-calls to urge voters in four states to support Marco Rubio in today’s GOP primaries. Also, in one state he urges support of John Kasich, as well as Rubio. In all calls he disparages Donald Trump, and doesn’t mention second-place Ted Cruz.

To the untrained eye (or ear?) this is very confusing, especially when Romney reps declare that they will also be helping Cruz in the future, but not today. They say it’s all an effort to block Trump from winning the party’s Presidential nomination, despite his near universal approval by voters in national polls.

While you might disagree with Trump on many issues, nearly every American is disgusted with a campaign finance system that allows the very rich to give millions to elect their stooges to public office. Both Trump and Bernie Sanders have railed against the super pacs and their hidden contributors. Trump has especially ranted against those who pull the strings before and after elections, and he has been attacked by the rich interests, who want to continue their control of the electoral process.

The big money, big control boys are nervous, very nervous over the prospect of a Sanders or Clinton victory. At this point Trump seems more likely to gain the prize (unless there is a F.B.I. surprise) so most guns are directed at him.

Assume the biggest power brokers among the wealthy are the ones most alarmed. The Koch brothers, sons of the founder of the John Birch Society – that refuge of the hysterical – Continue reading →
