That's because the deems social programs made it easier to not work than to get up and earn a living.

I think Scott is not a despicable human, with views probably to the center compared to Bannon.

Not my words. I see the far left offends you as much as they do me . You seem to have a pretty low threshold for what makes a despicable human . I think he's had a fairly distinguished life including several years as a naval officer . Perhaps you just don't like the team he plays for . It seems to matter to liberals .

Had a 100 days and Trump's tax plan is only one page.

Some one compared it to a kid who did their home work on the bus on the way to school..(had to get it in on day 99.5 )

But yet again he puts this out . and the faithful run to defend it .. tell us what it means whats it going to do how its going to do it . (even if its only 1 page)

love repeal the death tax to give Ivanka a huge tax break

Who pays the estate tax? no one on this board or the majority of American but the some how think it does and support theses repeals blindly

the real answer is

The Tax Policy Center estimates that some 11,020 individuals dying in 2017 will leave estates large enough to require filing an estate tax return (estates with a gross value under $5.49 million need not file this return in 2017). After allowing for deductions and credits, 5,190 estates will owe tax. Nearly 70 percent of these taxable estates will come from the top 10 percent of income earners and over 25 percent will come from the top 1 percent alone.

So Trump taking care of 11,020 of his friends

I have said this and seems no one has the answer at the current tax rates we dont get anything now .. do you really think GDP is going to be 9% a year ?? GDP has grown since the 80's That is, the US has a distribution problem. Wages have lost relative to profits (and profits largely accrue to the rich and wealthy), and the wages of lower paid workers have fallen even while the wages of higher paid workers have risen. pesky facts

Trump is not here to help the Avg Americans he is using them as a means to an end ..


Trump told Reuters in an interview that being president is harder than he thought it would be and he actually misses his old life. (supporters That’s incredibly honest) WTF really so glad Obama never said that could you imagine

he was worse...

“This is something that I’ve struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is that, you know, I’m the president of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.” He “told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China,” the New York Times reported in March 2011. “As one official put it, ‘No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.’”

WOW from nationalreview no bias here


what a surprise more False equivalence. one telling people he cant just do what he want to do.. and Trump not recognizing how hard is to be The POTUS


Where Trump’s comments seem tinged with wistfulness — O, to enjoy unburdened the breeze at Mar-a-Lago! — Obama’s were more often tinged with frustration.

again telling people what he ment and not what he said ... as if we all can't comprehend a sentence

President Trump’s first 100 days have been mostly a flurry of shallow symbolic gestures. There is a reality-television program called American Pickers, and what happens on it is this: A junkman drives around in a van and offers to buy other people’s junk, sometimes haggling over the price. The supporting characters are assistant junkmen and sundry onlookers. It is as though someone decided to remake Sanford and Son without actors, Redd Foxx’s humor, or a plot. (Or that nifty theme music.) Its popularity is as inexplicable as it is undeniable. Because nothing actually happens on American Pickers, the show relies on the illusion of action, which is created through camerawork and editing. Junkman offers $x for a quantity of junk; Junk-Haver produces a look of concentration. The camera cuts quickly back and forth among the faces of Junkman, Deputy Junkman, Assistant Deputy Junkman, Junk-Haver, and Sundry Junk-Having Onlookers. And then there is a commercial for erection pills. The application to the first 100 days of the Trump administration is of course obvious.
