The only proposal worse than Trumpcare offered by your illegitimate president is his budget. Both would greatly harm tens of millions of Americans and benefit the one-percent, and his budget is not based on his own ideas; it is based on the failed fiscal policies initiated by Ronald Reagan, and adopted by George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
When Reagan left office in 1989, our nation was eight trillion dollars in debt, and unemployment was at 10 percent. Similar statistics were created by Bush 41 and Bush 43. In contrast, Democrat Bill Clinton retired leaving our nation a surplus.
“Supply side,” or “trickle-down economics” simply does not work. However, Trump is ignoring facts, he hates them, and is planning a huge tax cut for the “job creators.” It has been proven multiple times that when the one-percent experiences an increase in their profits, they store it in offshore accounts and often reduce employment by sending jobs overseas, or implementing automation in their factories.
Republicans have no ‘ideas.’ GOP politicians are inept and cannot govern effectively. Not only Trump, but Lyin Paul Ryan, and Mitch ‘the traitor’ McConnell are complete failures. They have never represented the majority of the American people; they work for the wealthy.
Finally, there was some humor in the budget proposal, which confirms the hap-hazard manner in which Trump and his circle of sinners operates. A school boy would have noticed that there is a two-trillion dollar error in the arithmetic. That’s right Trillion. Budget director, Mick Mulvaney attempted to explain the mistake, by simply made a fool of himself.
Trump is a buffoon; he knows nothing about anything. We cannot allow his failures to cause the failure of our nation.
Time for all Democrats and Independents to rally around every candidate who is not a Republican. Vote in November 2018.
