GOP Tax Cuts Are Devastating Friday, February 24, 2017 (3 comments)

The Perennial GOP Tax Scam With the GOP in power, get ready to see working people's pay start dropping again, as it did starting in the 1980s after Reagan's tax cut and in the early 2000s after Bush's. Also get ready to see income inequality grow even worse, as the truly rich see a big boost in their take-home pay and thus their overall wealth, while working people and our nation's infrastructure get screwed.

Trump Lends the Banksters a Hand Donald Trump just pulled off the biggest bait-and-switch in American history. Back when he was a presidential candidate, Trump said things about the big banks that made him sound like a Bernie Sanders Democrat. In his final ad before Election he blasted the "global power structure" that was robbing the country blind at the expense of working Americans. That ad will go down in history as a con job of epic proportions.

The Coming War on Net Neutrality Net neutrality doesn't threaten freedom or hold back investment -- net neutrality keeps the Internet the way we've always known it: everyone's online content and services are treated the exact same way as anyone else's, no matter whether the creator is a tech-savvy amateur or a giant multinational like Microsoft.

The Trump Story the Media Dare Not Utter Freedom of the press in America has become as much an economic as a political issue. This is problematic, because no democracy can survive when most of the media has a sole commitment to profit with little consideration for the public good. The Trump presidency is virtually entirely a product of our modern for-profit, highly-consolidated media.

Will Trump Provoke a Serious Conflict with China? The so-called "pivot to Asia" that President Obama made the centerpiece of his long-term foreign policy agenda was also predicated in large part on the idea that China is a potential adversary that needs to be countered -- perhaps by force. But is China really our enemy? Or are we just turning them into one? And are we risking nuclear annihilation in the process?

Here's How We Can Really Protect America It's time to wake up and realize that we've become the planet's village idiots. Giant transnational corporations and the politicians the Supreme Court has allowed them to own have sold us out. We're the only developed country in the world that doesn't aggressively practice at least some form of protectionism.

The Danger With Trump's "Election Rigging" Talk The real problem with Trump's rigged election talk is that it will give Republican legislatures all across the country a new justification to ramp up their war on young people, people of color and older people voting. The base will want it because Trump will have primed them for it, and so will the party establishment, because they've always worked to suppress the vote.

Our Giant Experiment With "Greed Is Good" Has Failed If we really want to stop other banks from doing what Wells Fargo did, we need to repudiate Reaganomics and the tax structure and business rules that allow it flourish. Start enforcing the Sherman Act and break up the giant corporate monopolies. Raise the top tax rate. And eliminate the corporate deduction for compensating executives with stock and stock options.

Now, Every Storm Is a Climate Change Storm We can't stop every extreme storm event from happening, but we can demand that our politicians make our planet's climate crisis their top priority; we can put a price on carbon and start funding efforts to make our cities greener and more resilient; and, we can hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for lying to consumers and investors about the threat that their business model poses to humanity.

We need to reject Reaganism once and for all, and we need a massive government investment to bring US infrastructure into the 21st century.

The US Is a Country, Not a Business With Reaganomics came the idea that government isn't the solution, it's the problem. But this mantra is the source of many things wrong with this country. By waging war on government, which they call the "problem," Ronald Reagan and his contemporary followers in the Republican Party have sold us out to big business.

We Have All Won an Oligarchy and Lost a Democracy Since Reagan killed the Fairness Doctrine and the passage of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, our media has completely shifted from "news" to infotainment. It's largely fact-free, and the only things discussed are personalities, gotchas and the horse-race claptrap. It's completely free of facts that would give us any information, context or understanding of the role that corporate power plays in our lives.

Goldman Sachs Is Acknowledging Climate Change. Why Isn't the GOP? The Republican Party. The so-called Grand Old Party, the party of Lincoln, is the only major political party in the developed world that denies man-made climate change. Despite all the evidence, despite the fact that the past 16 months have been the hottest on record, despite the fact that we're now seeing 1,000-year weather events on monthly basis -- despite all this, the Republican Party still refuses to accept reality.

Why Does Trump Survive Scandals? Because Scandals Are Part of His Appeal Trump is someone who's made billions by hustles and bribes, and he's not going to suddenly change once he becomes president. He'll still be the same privileged bully he's always been. If he brings his corrupt deal-making skills to the White House, expect him and his buddies to get rich and US workers to get the shaft. That's the way it's always been with Trump the businessman; it's the way it'll be with Trump the politician.

Don't Buy the Hype -- the TPP Won't Secure the US All this talk about "confronting China" and "preserving American hegemony" is doublespeak aimed at keeping the American people in the dark about the corporate grab bag the TPP really is. When it comes down to it, the TPP is just another neoliberal corporate plan to reduce national sovereignty and strengthen the role corporations play in running the world.

Bus Drivers Shouldn't Pay More Taxes Than Millionaires Even though it only benefits about 2,000 people every year, the carried interest loophole costs taxpayers -- you and me -- about $2 billion in lost revenue every single year. Closing it, some studies have found, could bring in as much $18 billion over 10 years.

Our tax code needs to be fixed to encourage companies to come home and pay their taxes, and to block companies from doing business in the US without paying their fair share.

TiSA" Big Brother and Big Business Together By far the most sweeping deal that's being negotiated in secret and largely overlooked by activists is the Trade in Services Agreement, also known as TiSA. TiSA will undermine citizens' privacy and governments' sovereignty, and negotiators are hoping to have a deal finalized by the end of this year. It will cripple our democratic republic by making it even easier for corporations to manage or strike down our public laws.

These Corporations Have Pillaged the Land and Robbed the People It's time to put a stop to Big Coal's playbook of pillaging the land for short term profits and then robbing workers and retirees of their pensions to pay off Wall Street lenders. And if lawmakers want to be pro-worker, we need legislation that ACTUALLY protects workers' health care and pensions, without holding the environment for ransom.

How Do We Democratize Our Media? There's a reason the framers of the Constitution wrote the press into the First Amendment: Democracy can't thrive without an informed electorate. It's time to democratize the media, and that means it's time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine and to reinstate media ownership rules so a small handful of wealthy right-wingers no longer dictate our daily media diet.

What Happens When Neither Political Party Answers to the Bottom 90%? America in Crisis With both political parties captured almost entirely by the interest of the top 1% (Republicans) and the top 10% (Democrats), the bottom 90% feel they have nowhere else to go. For the past few decades, they've expressed this reality of being unrepresented by simply not voting and not showing up for politics, which they correctly saw as rigged and not working in their interest.

Go West, Young Man: Bernie Sanders' Path to Victory and Political Revolution The experts and pundits in the establishment media industrial complex have written Sanders off before, and they've been wrong about pretty much everything this election, so we should take what they say with a gigantic grain of salt. The political revolution wins regardless of whether or not its leader does.

A Key Component of US Fascism Is Already in Place When corporations can buy Congress and use their sheer size and influence to get what they want and box out competition, there is no free market at all. And if you believe the old maxim that there is no freedom without economic freedom, there's no democracy either. Donald Trump is taking us in a very dangerous direction, and thanks to Ronald Reagan, he has fertile ground to work with.

The Era of Small Government Is Over Today's Republicans don't believe in promoting the general welfare. They're ideologues who've been running a gigantic scam on the American people for the past 30 years. They want to destroy government to enrich their wealthy friends and donors. This con worked for decades, but Americans are now starting to figure it out.

It's Time to Rid the DNC of DINOs, Starting With the Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz isn't the only Democrat-In-Name-Only (DINO) in the Democratic leadership. But as the DNC Chair, she is the highest-ranking DINO in the party. It's time to restore the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party, and we should start with the chair.

Why Is Our Government Working for the Private Good Over the Public Good? If the new chemical safety bill passes into law, cities and schools will be stuck with the bill to clean up Monsanto's cancer-causing chemical, and individuals will be stuck with the bill to treat the cancers that the chemical caused. That's a real possibility, because our government has stopped working for the public good, and now it works mostly to line the coffers of multibillion dollar corporations.

Why Insurance Companies Are Nervous About Sanders' Health Care Agenda Ever since Bernie Sanders announced his campaign for president--and long before, in fact--he has been attacked for his stance on single-payer health care. It's been over 50 years since Medicare was legislated into existence, and it was established with the idea that one day it would be tweaked to become the national single-payer health insurance program for the United States of America. Let's fulfill the promise of Medicare!

Have the Democratic Superdelegates Been Compromised? If Americans suspect that the Democratic elite have been rigging the nomination process, then Democrats are going to have a hard time harnessing the grassroots energy that they'll need to propel their candidate to the White House. If they want to win in November, it's time that the Democrats make their primaries truly Democratic again.

Why Americans Like Socialism Say what you want about the feasibility of "democratic socialism," but the argument that it's somehow out of step with what the American people want is just flat-out wrong. Americans do want socialism, even if they've been bludgeoned by decades of Cold War era propaganda into believing that it's an affront to our democracy.
