Ken, He admitted doing it. The biggest problem with Trump is that his EGO gets in the way of his thinking and actions. He is extremely thin skinned and extremely disrespectful to people he disagrees with which is why he surrounds himself with yes men. He needs to be told each and everyday how great he is. He is the first President ever to have a Propaganda Minister (Bannon) who he put on the National Security Council and he also has walk in privileges to the Oval Office. This is to make sure only info favorable to him is released. My big problem with him is what I've said for many months and that is the US Nuclear Arsenal is controlled by a mentally impaired person. What will happen when an Ally like Australia or Iran, North Korea pisses him off? I can tell you it will be war and it could be Nuclear. Remember Trump knows nothing about what is like to be in a war. His Father did not serve in WW2, he refused to serve during Vietnam and his children never served in the Gulf. Obviously they were all "Too rich to serve".
Trump slams phone down on Australian PM during their first conversation. What will be next for the thin skinned Treater in Chief? Nuclear War ?
Very true plus do you know how to tell if a Politician is lying? His or her lips are moving.
According to the 1996 Welfare Reform Act Undocumented Immigrants DO NOT qualify for Food Stamps, Welfare and other Benefits. You must be in the country in LEGAL status for 5 years minimum to qualify for any benefits.
You are quoting an alternative fact. I know many US citizens over the years who work "under the table" for cash so they don't have to pay taxes. Our current President brags he has not paid Federal Taxes in 20 years on $ Billions of income and he has many children by different wives.
Illegals cannot receive food stamps or welfare however their children can go to public school. Only American citizens are eligible for these programs. Most illegals are fully employed(doing jobs Americans refuse to do) working on the farms or cleaning hotel rooms and maintaining golf courses many owned by Donald J. Trump. High paying jobs require skills they don't have nor do many Americans. Most of those good jobs have been replaced by automation and robots and they will never return again. It is fantasy to believe millions of high paying with benefits manufacturing jobs will suddenly reappear. The ones that do will be highly automated employing one fifth of what they previously had. The Auto Industry in the US had 3 million workers in the 50's to 70's. Today 500,000 workers put out twice as many units as they did then thanks to automation. If you don't have the skills needed in todays job market you will be stuck in a dead end job, that is reality.
Tax revenue??? Then please explain to everyone how Trump is going to pay for the massive increase in Defense spending, massive Infrastructure spending , the Wall etc. and at the same exact time have massive tax cuts for Corporations, eliminate the inheritance tax for the top 0.1%, reduce the top rate from 39% to 25% etc.(Why should anyone pay taxes, we should all be like Trump and pay nothing for 20 years) The OMB predicts this will all add an additional $10 Trillion more to the National Debt. I think we did all this from 2001 to 2016 and the deficit went from $5 Trillion to $19 Trillion today. Which is worse, tax and spend politicians or tax cut and spend politicians?
Is Deregulation always a good thing? The Airline Industry was deregulated in 1978 and the end result was we now have only 3 Major Airlines that control everything and they treat everyone like cattle. Does anyone enjoy flying anymore? They deregulated the Investment Banks in 2000 by repealing the Glass Steagall Act and what was the result? The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. All Tipton wants is to allow the Oil and Gas Industry to take over our National Treasures so they can drill anywhere and poison our water and air so he can get big campaign contributions. No telling what the "Moscow Candidate" wants to give away so his friends and business associates can laugh all the way to the bank and the rest of us will have to pay the price. Be careful what you wish for !!!
I must be lucky I have had no problem finding providers. I think it must depend on where you live. The US spends more on healthcare(17% of GDP) than any other Western Country with worse results. The difference is all the others have Universal Healthcare for all their citizens. They don't have Insurance Companies paying 30% of what they take in to CEO's and Executives in the form of compensation and bonuses. What is the solution to this nations Healthcare ? I was not Obamacare or Romneycare. I totally agree the construction of the VA Hospital in Denver is exactly what is wrong with Government. Construction companies underbid the project then bill enormous cost overruns. I believe the original cost was around $700 million and it is now $1.7 Billion. However you will find that tactic prevalent in Defense Contracts. The F-35 Fighter has tripled in cost over the last decade with some estimates around $500 million per aircraft. Originally it had 2 engines per aircraft one from GE and one from Prat and Whitney which is ridiculous. Contractors spread out manufacturing in many states and especially in powerful Congressmen's Districts so they will never question the cost overruns. This way they can brag about all the high paying jobs they have created. One of the engines was built in Congressman John Boehner's District. Like Pres. Eisenhower said in 1960 beware of the Military Industrial Complex.
