If Democrats gain 30 seats in the November election, they will regain control of the House. As of today 32 Republican Congressmen have decided not to run for reelection. GOP politicians will have no support from Trump. With an approval rating in the low 30’s, he is the most unpopular president in American history after only one year.
The greatest bonus is that Lyin Paul Ryan will be removed as the Speaker. He is the greatest disappointment in America.
For eight years of the Obama administration Republicans did absolutely nothing. In one year of the Trump debacle, they have voted against the wishes of the majority of the American people. They have chosen to support a fascist who chooses to rule over us and refuses to serve us.
Trump, McConnell, Ryan, and the rest of the Republican Party attempted to sell the American people on their destructive tax plan. Although it was obvious that it is nothing but a gift to Trump and other wealthy Americans, they promised increased employment. Immediately after they passed the bill on a totally partisan basis, Wal Mart announced a small increase in wages for their employees while reporting that they would be laying off thousands of men and women as they closed ‘Sam’s Club’ stores. Other large companies are doing the same.
40,000 jobs have been lost in the tourism industry and that fact is directly related to Trump’s policies and threats.
The Carrier plant in Indiana where Trump and Pence visited to brag about ‘saving jobs’ sent much of their manufacturing department to Mexico, and have laid off many of their employees.
Trump promised that all construction would use American made steel. The Steel Worker’s Union has reported this to be a huge lie.
About 58 percent of U.S. adults surveyed said that large U.S. corporations or wealthy Americans stand to benefit most from the tax legislation, according to the latest polls. Every proposal from Trump benefits him first and ignores the needs and wishes of the majority of Americans.
Wake up America; you have been conned by an old white sexual predator, and the greediest man alive.
