Doddering, rich, rapacious, and a shameless liar, Sen. Hatch is one of the iconic figures in today’s GOP caucus.
He has one of those patented GOP hissy fits on the Senate floor when Sen. Brown calls him out on the GOP tax scam.
Hatch has the audacity to cite his humble beginnings as defense of the horrendous ambush on America that this tax cut represents.
Who cares where you came from, Sen. Hatch, it’s the irrevocable harm you’re inflicting on America today that counts.
Mick Mulvaney to head Consumer Protection.
Boggles the mind, but then, at this point, it no longer does.
As Sen. Warren tweets, “This is a giant middle finger to consumers.”
There is no one in the GOP with a more warped, perverted, set of anti-American values than Mulvaney.
White House, Inc., as if we needed reminding, is an all -out war on the American population.
So did an audience-member, a small business owner, lament at last week’s forum on “High-Rent Blight,” hosted by State Senator Brad Hoylman.
FIT’s auditorium was full of people imploring the elected officials present: Hoylman and Manhattan Borough President Gail Brewer, to do something to restore affordable commercial rents.
We live in a city that now caters solely to the municipal, national, and international wealthy.
Scribes Jeremiah Moss and Tim Wu also had a lot to say at this forum.
Moss recommended Julian Brash’s book “Bloomberg’s New York,” which I started reading today. The book makes clear that Emperor Bloomberg’s takeover of municipal government was something of a dry run for Trump’s attempt to transform America into a dictatorship.
No, democratic governance should not be run like a business-nor like a totalitarian state.
Fox’s Fawning Freaks aren’t enough.
Siinclair Broadcasting puppet, FCC chairman Ajit Pai, relaxes ownership rules to ensure even more media consolidation, and, in particular, enable GOP affiliate Sinclair to devour our airwaves.
Sinclair will be the right-wing, hyper-capitalist answer to the urban loudspeakers that once dispersed official “news” to Soviet citizens.
who and what he is. His loyalty is only to the dominance of the Republican Party and the billionaires who fund it.
Within an hour of sexual harassment accusations against Senator Franken, McConnell is calling for an investigation.
Almost a year into Trump’s presidency, McConnell is NOT calling for an investigation into Trump’s self-admitted serial sexual harassment.
Jeff Sessions squirms under the questioning of Representative Hakeem Jeffries.
Hey, Paul Krugman’s right, that the GOP tax bill will create a hereditary plutocracy in this country, buy why think small?
Why don’t they establish a hereditary monarchy?
Think big, traitors!
He bitches that the GOP-led House and Senate aren’t giving him a big enough tax cut.
Come Christmas time, she’ll be dancing the Sugar Plum Fairy in the Fadeyev Ballet’s Nutcracker on Long Island.
Trump nominates a former Big Pharma exec to succeed the infamous Tom Price as Health and Human Services head.
Every single GOP elected official who goes along needs to be confronted with his/her endorsement of yet another merciless attack on the American people.
