Pelosi’s Crumbs

Nancy Pelosi called Trump’s tax cuts for workers “crumbs”. Thousand dollar crumbs, but still crumbs.

No doubt the House Minority Leader from San Francisco does have thousand dollar crumbs on her plate.

By her lights those crumbs are a “little piece of cheese in a mouse trap” for the little people who elect her to do what she does.

I don’t think she gets why her party has crumbled.

Pelosi’s Own Tax Facts

President Trump won big on tax reform. And Nancy Pelosi became unhinged. Here’s some of what she had to say about the bill:

End of the worldArmagedonBrazen theft from the middle classRaises taxes on 86 million middle class…Moral Obscenity…Permanent Plutocracy…Unrepentant Greed…A Vote against Tiny Tim

Tax Facts

The fact is, according to Politco and others, eighty percent of filers will get a tax cut averaging $2,000. Yet, for some reason, most people believe they’ll get a tax hike.

But despite his Christmas cash stocking stuffer, Trump’s approval rating remains low. And some Republicans lurk among the resistance.

 

Trump Schumer Deal

The Trump Schumer deal came to pass this week. Chuck Schumer made an offer to increase the debt ceiling for three months. And Donald Trump took him up on it.

Swamp dwelling Republicans were aghast. Earlier in the day Paul Ryan had blasted the same offer as “ridiculous and disgraceful”.

But then Republicans haven’t had much luck closing deals for Trump. Obamacare still stands and Trump outpolls Congress.

Mark Steyn says, “there are now three political parties in Washington.” Democrats, Republicans, and Trump. The Democrats have a base. Trump has a base. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan don’t have a base.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller Crime Search

The Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller special counsel this week. His mission is to investigate suspected collusion between Team Trump and Russia.  And pretty much anything else that strikes his fancy once he gets going.

Mueller’s a career creature of the Washington Swamp. But, as swamp creatures go, he’s one of the most respected. He served as FBI Director for 12 years without scandal. It also doesn’t hurt that he earned a Bronze Star and Purple heart as a Marine rifle platoon leader in Vietnam.

Another Washington swamp creature, Rep. Maxine Waters, looks forward to the Mueller crime search. She anticipates a thorough and fair investigation. Ending with the impeachment of Donald Trump.

The only problem is, so far, there’s no evidence of a crime.

 

 

ObamaCare Entitlement

ObamaCare was passed by the Democrats on Christmas Eve 2009, so we could find out what was in the bill. It has been unpopular with the American people ever since.

But since then it has become the ObamaCare entitlement.

Now, despite all the people who lost their doctors. And all the people who lost their insurance coverage. Twenty million other people will lose the coverage they never had before the bill was passed. At least that’s what the CBO says.

And that has the Republicans scared.
