Amidst all the confusion and obfuscation by the president and his stooges, the real work is being done by Congress, and nobody seems to be watching.
1. HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
2. HR 610 Vouchers for Public Education
3. HR 899 Terminate the Department of Education…
4. HJR 69 Repeal Rule Protecting Wildlife
5. HR 370 Repeal Affordable Care Act
6. HR 354 Defund Planned Parenthood
7. HR 785 National Right to Work (this one ends unions)
8. HR 83 Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Bill
9. HR 147 Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)
10. HR 808 Sanctions against Iran
Congress is quietly dismantling our country as we know it. They are “making America great again” by throwing it back to the way things were in the 1940s. Seriously?
Pretty soon they’ll turn the Internet off because too many of us pesky citizens are watching and posting nasty fake news like this.
Pretty soon we’ll all be poor, since the billionaires are going to suck up more and more of our taxes and resources, and then they’ll take our iPhones away because we’ll need this money to buy health insurance on the open market.
What is DeVos going to do when the Department of Education no longer exists? What is Scott Pruitt going to do when he turns off the lights at the EPA?
I am seriously scratching my head. America is going to be “great again” when abortion is criminalized, when there is no EPA to keep a check on the rampant rape of our land by industry, when every state makes its own decisions about education, when millions of people who just managed to get health insurance will lose it again?
This is all going on while the presidential clown show is underway in Florida, keeping us distracted from the real changes happening that affect all of us every day.
Are they serious?
We really want this?
