Now is the time to pile on the GOP Corp Stimulus. Because they gave us the case for spending more.

The so called GOP "deficit Hawks" have turned out to be fat cat Turkeys who agree that deficit spending is great as long as the spending "promotes growth."

Remember, that is their central argument. We may know that is wrong, but as Dems we do know proper deficit spending, like universal healthcare will promote growth by freeing everyone from the CEO to the pot-washer from paying and worrying about healthcare cost

You could start your own business along the new road and the rapid transit station that was built with increased infrastructure spending that we can now afford because companies are now free to add jobs and, well, something wonderful, we have plenty of money.

If it makes sense to them today, make sure they know it makes sense to them again tomorrow.

P.S Does anyone else wonder why no one has asked Trump how many jobs his hotels/clubs will add because of the cuts? I've heard all his kitchens need help and maintenance.

I called my Republican Congressman & Senator, here's my short message to both:

I told my PA Rep. Scott Perry and Senator Pat Toomey that I was distressed to hear that such a fiscal hawk who vote to add at least a Trillion in debt for no apparent reason. And that my only conclusion was that they have to vote for the bill to pay back their donors.

I got to Perry's York office on first try. The woman who answered the phone was very polite as was the gentleman who answered at Toomey's office in Allentown after about 5 tries.

Everyone please keep calling!

Bernie is Beating the Demonic Duo Punch by Punch! Edit: Added Video

The reason is because Bernie is correct about Medicare for ALL.

We need to support it because it makes sense.

Otherwise, the GOP will paint us as mushy for "not having a plan.

Consider that Cobb and Dowd maybe just covering their own...


Cobb sounds like he wants Trump to be transparent. So he making it appear that he is not for covering anything up.

Dowd sounds like Don McGahn has the goods in a safe, and he is concerned about "executive privilege" so he does not want you to think he is covering anything up either.

Maybe they both know the indictments are coming soon.

We hope!

Harvey: Why is the wealthiest nation in the world BEGGING for donations?

The USA is better than that. Every burden suffered by one of US, should be carried by ALL of US.

We do not need to beg for a pittance of pocket change from the wealthy. Like the tiny-fingered donation of a tiny fraction of Trump's wealth. We need to demand the wealthy pay BIG TIME for THEIR senseless, endless and ego-centric wars. In ADDITION to the rebuilding of the nation after ALL disasters. The rich and POWERFUL need to repay the USA for providing the soil, toil and mind-power for their own success.

Trump just said that CNN will not cover his speech, I know this because...

We NEED EVERYONE to Join the Democratic Party!

We need everyone who is willing to vote for Democrats to help win every election, to join us.

We need candidates to run for every seat from Dog Catcher, to a replacement for the creep presently in the White House.

We need you to bring your friends from everywhere, or from any political party, you can find to vote for Democrats.

We need you to advocate for other Democrats in your neighborhood who speak up and even more when they run for an elective office as a Democrat.

We need everyone to join with anyone from any political party who votes for, and with, Democrats to defeat every Republican we can replace and every wrong idea they create.

We need to defeat the GOP and save the world from the evil they stand for and the danger they pose for all of us.

A Democrat is always better for Dems than any Republican. Now, our focus needs to be on winning.

After we win the House, Senate and White House and a large majority of State Houses. Then we can argue over the issues and other specifics like the Republicans are doing. Because right now the GOP controls almost all of our political lives.

Keep your eyes on the prize.

Stop fighting among ourselves.

The Earth itself and all our lives, thoughts and dreams for the future literally depend on it.
