Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for October 18th:
Bottom Line: These are you daily doses of nonsense from the generally godless, soulless and slanderous news media...
What If Trump Wins on Obamacare and Taxes? Robert Kuttner, HuffPost
Excerpt: Trump is screwing not just the rest of America, but tens of millions of people who voted for him.
Well, once again let's see what's real...
Economic growth over 3%
Base unemployment rate is the lowest in 16 years
Real unemployment is the best in ten years
Wage growth is the best in ten years
Labor participation is the best in four years
Corporate profits are at all-time highs
The stock market is at all-time highs amid a record run since last November's election
And if we actually were to have a lower tax burden with a similar code and at least the ability to not have to participate or a pay tax for the current insurance first-model as well... If this/that is what it means to get screwed, I'll gladly take some more of it please.
Trump's Plan to Kill Obamacare Likely to Fail in the Courts Mark Joseph Stern, Slate
I hate to be the one to point out the obvious here but the "courts" already found Obamacare to be illegally funded. So, help me understand how the President actually abiding by the "courts" ruling will likely fail in the "courts".
America's First 'Low-Information' President Ed Kilgore, New York Magazine
Excerpt: But there is one sense in which Trump is genuinely a man of the people — or, more precisely, of a certain subsegment of said people: Like millions of ordinary Americans, Donald Trump watches a lot of Fox News, but isn’t really interested in politics.
No occupant of the Oval Office has ever shared the average person’s disinterest in policy, parliamentary procedure, and the rudiments of American civics to the extent that Trump does. He is America’s first “low-information voter” president.
I have to admit it's a guilty pleasure of mine when people who pretend they're smarter than you and are attempting to insult others step in it. The first is the attempted drive- by on all Americans who choose to watch Fox News (in addition to the President). The second is once again the notion that an ignorant rube built a multi-national, multi-billion-dollar company. But the best part is the reference of the insult. The term low-information wasn't coined by Rush Limbaugh (it was actually a pollster making observations about many of Bill Clinton's supporters in the 90's ironically enough) but no one has used it more prolifically than Rush Limbaugh in recent years. The rubes at New York Magazine linked the reference back to the Washington Post. So, who's really the low information crowd in this conversation?
