9. Yes. The GREEDY RepubliCONs are making wealth & income inequality reach revolutionary levels.


The percentage of people they can actually con drops daily. By how much? The RepubliCons are gambling with the public's money.

5. MSM ("plutocracy Pravda") always calls everything by the Republicans' propaganda term

"enhanced interrogation" instead of "torture"
"chain migration" instead of the real name "family re-unification"
"Obamacare" instead of ACA
"welfare reform" instead of starving poor people
It just goes on and on.

12. It drives me nuts

when I hear the MSM just repeat the phrases that right-wing strategists coined for political purposes. They are just doing the republican party's work for them, spreading the propaganda. If they must use such phrases, it should be "So called, chain migration" or "As republicans say........", and follow it up with the correct wording.

15. "Reshaping Medicaid" is a new term for adding difficult

and impossible new work requirements, data submission, restrictions and more. All to discourage and eliminate recipients.

MSM rarely delves into the reality of these issues, why many remain completely ignorant. Unless they face it, close up.

6. Current rules about what cannot be purchased with food stamps.

https://eligibility.com/food-stamps/what-kinds-of-products-cannot-be-purchased-with-snap-benefits

No alcohol or tobacco. They can buy snacks -- as in chips for children's lunches.

They can't buy vitamins.

I was really poor at times in my life -- working poor.

I wrote down and listed every item I purchased and every penny I spent. It's a hard job being poor. It's really hard.

And Republicans want to make it harder.

What is the Republican plan for raising wages so that people can live and eat well on what they earn when they work?

and make a profit off of us, then we are of no use to them.

14. You are right. And Democrats need to point that out more strongly than we have been.

16. The GOP has no plan for people to live & eat well when working,

it's pretty clear. Not to survive with any real shred of quality of life anyway.

Ultimate social Darwinism.

20. Yes, and it's critical to somehow make many more aware

of all the drastic policies and changes taking place with social programs, automation, health and pollution. Foremost motivate them to GOTV-D, if they intend to survive. A tall order, but must be done. Or we're done, frankly. Seriously!

The conservative corporate media sucks!
