The Growing Danger of Dynastic Wealth Maybe Gary Cohn is correct that only morons pay the estate tax. But if he and his boss were smart and they cared about America's future, they'd raise taxes on great wealth. Roosevelt's fear of an American dynasty is more applicable today than ever before.

Everything You've Always Wanted to Know about the Trump-Republican Tax Plan there's no Trump tax plan and no Republican tax plan? All they've come up with so far is a bunch of platitudes about how nice it would be to cut taxes, simplify the tax code, and spur economic growth. Corporate and Wall Street Republicans -- along with Donald Trump -- are most interested in cutting taxes on corporations and the wealthy. They have the backing the GOP's big business donors who will make a bundle off tax cuts.

It's Now Time for Medicare for All Why is health care so much cheaper in other nations? Partly because their governments negotiate lower rates with health care providers. In France, the average cost of a magnetic resonance imaging exam is $363. In the United States, it's $1,121. There, an appendectomy costs $4,463. Here, it's $13,851. Medicare for all would avoid all these problems and get lower prices and better care.

Trump's Obstruction Of Justice Obstruction of justice was among the articles of impeachment drafted against both Presidents Nixon and Clinton. The parallel between Nixon and Trump is almost exact. White House tapes revealed Nixon giving instructions to pressure the acting FBI director into halting the Watergate investigation.

Trump's Policy Catastrophe Trump decisions other than DACA -- banning transgender people from military service, siding in court with a businessman who doesn't want to sell his services to gay couples, weakening the standard for responding to sexual violence in universities, demanding money for his "wall," banning Syrian refugees and reducing by half the number of refugees admitted to the United States.

Why We Should Abolish The Debt Ceiling Today's debt is about 77 percent of our total national product. The reason it's a problem is it's growing faster than the economy is growing, so it's on the way to becoming larger and larger in proportion. This is what we ought to be focusing on. Fighting over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling is a meaningless and dangerous distraction. So abolish it.

Why CEOs are Turning on Trump Trump's unwillingness to strongly condemn the neo-Nazi's and white supremacists in Charlottesville caused business leaders to stampede off his advisory councils. Now Trump's cruel plan to end DACA, the Obama-era program that allows unauthorized immigrants who arrived in America as children to remain here, is mobilizing CEOs to make the program permanent.

Google, Trump, and the Arrogance of Power Google and Trump are wildly different, of course, but they've been playing much the same game. They've used their clout to stifle criticism, paid members of Congress to pull their punches, and bought fake or at least questionable facts to support of their goals. Such abuse of power is morally wrong.

Trump's Labor Day In his first seven months as president, Trump has done nothing for American workers. In fact, his attempt to undermine the Affordable Care Act, his retreat from Labor Department regulations boosting overtime pay, and his proposed tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations will make most workers worse off. But he is in office because of their anger and distrust, and he's still feeding off it.

Dear Trump Voter... Trump administration is rigging the system for the extremely wealthy from the inside. They want to make it easier for banks to once again gamble with your money and repeat our financial crisis. They want to cut health care for millions of you. They want to lower taxes on corporations and the rich. They want to get rid of rules that stop corporations from harming your health or safety.

So be prepared for scorched-earth politics from the Oval Office, including more savage verbal attacks on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, more baseless charges of voter fraud in the 2016 election, and further escalation of the culture wars. Donald Trump has never been committed to the rule of law. For him, it's all about winning.

His refusal to reveal his tax returns, like his predecessors. The never-ending stream of lies that he continues to spew even after they're proven to be lies.

The 10 Steps to Impeach a President Only two presidents so far have been impeached by the House and had that impeachment go to the Senate for trial. The first was Andrew Johnson, in 1868, when the Senate came one vote short of convicting him. The next was 131 years later, in 1999, when Bill Clinton's impeachment went to the Senate. Fifty Senators voted to convict Clinton, 17 votes short of what was needed.

It's Time for Medicare for All American spending on healthcare per person is more than twice the average in the world's 35 advanced economies. Yet Americans are sicker, our lives are shorter, and we have more chronic illnesses than in any other advanced nation. That's because medical care is so expensive for the typical American that many put off seeing a doctor until their health has seriously deteriorated.

The Secret Healthcare Bill The Senate's bill is not a healthcare bill. It's a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans, paid for by a dramatic reduction in healthcare funding for approximately 23 million poor, disabled, and working middle class Americans. If enacted, it would be the largest single transfer of wealth to the rich from the middle class and poor in American history.

The Case for Obstruction of Justice Against Trump A decision to support an "inquiry of impeachment" resolution in the House -- to start an impeachment investigation -- doesn't depend on sufficient evidence to convict a person of obstruction of justice, but simply probable cause to believe a president may have obstructed justice. There's already more than enough evidence of probable cause to begin that impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.
