Not sure use LDs thread is specific or can be used for any topic IE open thread but found this little tid bit

This is what Trump Inc. has really been doing since the Republican occupation began on Jan 20 2017:

• Employers can no longer be held accountable for keeping accurate workplace injury records for at least five years.
• Student loan companies can levy hefty fees on borrowers trying to get out of default. • Internet service providers can collect and sell information about customers’ browsing habits without their permission.
• About 75,000 mentally ill people determined by the Social Security Administration to be incapable of handling their own finances won’t be barred from purchasing guns.
• Coal companies don’t have to obey new restrictions on pollution, nor do they have to monitor water quality in nearby streams.
• Federal contractors won’t have to disclose safety, health and labor violations prior to being awarded government contracts, a requirement companies have criticized as a “blacklisting rule.”
• Publicly traded oil, gas and mining companies won’t have to disclose payments to foreign governments.
• Financial advisers get a reprieve from stricter standards designed to prevent conflicts of interest when they make investment recommendations to people saving for retirement.
• Replaced EPA scientists with corporate industry hacks
• On the verge of stealing healthcare from millions of American citizens. (Still in progress)
• 20 states have restricted certain forms of peaceful protest. A clear violation of the constitution.
• Mandatory minimums for drug usage reinstated. (It’s a medical issue not a criminal one.)
• Election integrity commission to be headed by architects of voter suppression.
• The illegality of a President of the United States seeking to intimidate a potential witness in a congressional investigation.
• The illegality of a President potentially intimidating current FBI personnel who are investigating that president or his aides, by firing the former FBI head who was leading such an investigation and now threatening retaliation against him.
• Illegally giving classified information to the Russians.
• Granted ethics waivers to 17 top staffers.
• Trump’s FCC head Ajit Pai announced his plan to roll back net neutrality rules. The FCC just voted to start dismantling net neutrality regulations. Meaning, content will be throttled, voices will be silenced, and innovation stifled.
• Congress voted to eliminate pesticide regulations for America’s food supply.
• Rolled back birth control coverage for women.
• Pulls out of Paris Global Warming Treaty hastening the end of civilization and abdicating the US power as a global leader.
• House voted to roll back Dodd-Frank banking rules and consumer protections (the very cause of the 2008 financial crisis).
• Scraps protections for endangered whales and sea turtles.
• Attorney General Sessions is rolling back consent decrees in an effort to roll back civil rights enforcement. They are key to civil rights enforcement.
• The Education Department last week reversed an Obama-era reform that broadened the agency’s approach to protecting rights of students.

Think of the damage he’ll do by Jan 20 2018. Mid terms are so important to get at least one house back to slow him down.

Trumpcare sucks!

Mike Pence addresses the 1% who will benefit from Trumpcare.

Pence forgot to list the tax breaks that the 1% will enjoy on his tweet. Paying for health care is the least of the 1%s problems.

While Pence dines with the 1%, here’s what some of the 99% are focused on:

This certainly will be a jumbled comment but I am trying to make a point.

Over the past several months, you’ve read how all the Blue America-backed candidates are proponents of single payer health insurance. Some, like Illinois emergency room physician, David Gill, have been working towards it for many years. Our newest endorsee, Randy Bryce, the progressive Democrat running for the swing district Wisconsin seat Paul Ryan has been in, did an interview with the New Republic and explained why he favors single payer health insurance. This morning he built on his statement by telling us that “our very health is literally under attack. I am outraged by what I see going on in our government.

Thursday, conservative New Dem (former Blue Dog) Adam Schiff became the latest (and 113th) House Democrat to sign on as a co-sponsor of John Conyers’ Medicare-For-All bill (H.R. 676). The Blue Dogs and New Dems– the Republican wing of the Democratic Party– have tended to stay away from the bill but as election season approaches and the popularity of the approach, particularly among Democrats and independents– becomes manifest, even conservative politicians like Schiff are jumping on the train. Schiff is interested in running for the California Senate seat Dianne Feinstein told him she would be giving up next year. ( bolding by me) No one’s going to win statewide office in California without being committed to single-payer.

I tried to make my point that one should be concerned about Schiff’s motives.

I don’t like these odds at all!

Bernie keeps drawing big crowds!
