Good morning friends! I have a couple days worth of links to share as I got swamped with the bill-paying job yesterday and wasn’t able to put up a post. I am very thankful for those who did drop in with their findings and I’ll do my best to not repeat anyone else’s posts.
Starting off with Bernie’s reaction to Trump’s speech to Congresss and verything else will then go in the comments in absolutely no sort of order at all.. so if something doesn’t interest you keep on scrolling and I’m sure something eventually will! As always I welcome your input!
Color Bernie Sanders unimpressed with President Trump’s address to Congress.
The US senator from Vermont recorded a 14-minute long video after the speech Tuesday night railing against Trump for not just what he said, but what he didn’t say.
In a video posted to Facebook, Sanders said that Trump failed to touch on issues like income inequality, criminal justice reform, and climate change.
“I did not hear President Trump say one word, not one word, about the need to combat climate change, the greatest environmental threat facing our planet,” Sanders said.
Sanders also said Trump wants to give $3 trillion in tax breaks to the richest people in the country, calling the move an “outrage.”
The senator also expressed displeasure with Trump’s plans on repealing the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as Obamacare.
“Tonight, President Trump once again made it clear he plans on working with Republicans in Congress who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act, throw 20 million Americans off of health insurance, privatize Medicare, make massive cuts in Medicaid, raise the cost of prescription drugs to seniors, eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, while at the same time, he wants to give another massive tax break to the wealthiest americans,” Sanders said.
