As the government nears a shut-down, the Ebeneezer Scrooges in the GOP Congress rush to cut taxes for Billionaires
If a nation ever needed three ghosts of Christmas from Charles Dickens’ classic story to visit, it is the USA. The GOP has shown us their priorities. What is more important to the GOP, a functioning government as they head out of Washington for a break, or taking care of billionaires? OK, I apologize for... Read more »

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP

I’m embarrassed about my four decades with the GOP
Today is a good day to be a Democrat. Today is a shameful day to be a Republican. There is not a day that goes by that I am not embarrassed about my past affiliation with the GOP. Not only was I a member of the GOP, but helped GOP candidates raise money and win... Read more »

The GOP tax plan and the Titanic have a lot in common

The GOP tax plan and the Titanic have a lot in common
The White House unveiled their sweeping, magnificent, life-changing, biggest in history tax-overhaul plan yesterday. All 9 pages of it. What the White House released wasn’t a tax plan at all.
