This is a thread about his budget plan but ok.

If he actually paid 25% tax .. he needs to fire his accountant ;-)  Lots of plutocrats shelter their assets and income a lot better than that.

It is the work of a man who is going to find himself thrown out of the White House very soon.
I keep hearing people say this, but it's usually the same people who said he'd never get in the WH in the first place...

I suspect that by the time he does something so bad as to be in danger of impeachment, the GOP will also be so implicated that they'd never be able to convict him without convicting themselves.

Trump's health care plan will not pass for one very important reason:

If they say yes to it, they know for certain they will be voted out of office next year.

I doubt they're planning on letting any more elections happen. I don't know how they'll stop it - maybe a "national emergency" will allow them to suspend elections. I hope I'm wrong, as I probably am.

Ha, ha, ha ha, ha! You guys are so cute! You think that the American people are collectively capable of making an informed decision, in the unprecedented new age, of ambiguity, innuendo and obfuscation, led by Fox News, and the right-wing-radio brainwashing.

Our analysis in the spring of 2007 of the 257 news/talk stations owned by the top five commercial station owners reveals that 91 percent of the total weekday talk radio programming is conservative, and 9 percent is progressive.
Each weekday, 2,570 hours and 15 minutes of conservative talk are broadcast on these stations compared to 254 hours of progressive talk—10 times as much conservative talk as progressive talk.
A separate analysis of all of the news/talk stations in the top 10 radio markets reveals that 76 percent of the programming in these markets is conservative and 24 percent is progressive, although programming is more balanced in markets such as New York and Chicago.

It comes from a new survey by the Pew Research Center, which surveyed 2,901 people and divided them into five categories—“consistently liberal,” “mostly Liberal,” “mixed,” “mostly conservative,” and “consistently conservative”—based on 10 questions about their political values. Among consistently conservative respondents, 47 percent chose Fox News as their main source “for news about government and politics.” The next largest group, 11 percent, chose local radio.

No need, give it all to Elon Musk's private space program for billionaires who want to hide out on Mars.  Payback for campaign contributions.

PBS is cut, although I'm not sure how many people would care about that.
