The #TrumpBudget is replete with dangerous proposals that leave working families to fend for themselves in a changing and uncertain economy. It makes the President’s priorities clear: the wealthiest Americans come first ahead of working Americans. bit.ly/2HaXWkH
The #TrumpBudget is a manifestation of #TrumpBrokenPromises to improve health care, safeguard Medicare, & eliminate the debt. POTUS cuts Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, nutrition assistance, student loan assistance, & other priorities to offset the deficits caused by the #GOPTaxScam.
POTUS & GOP allies promised that their tax cuts for the wealthiest would pay for themselves & not cause higher deficits because the benefits directed toward the wealthy would eventually trickle down to workers & boost economic activity. This #TrumpBudget makes no mention of them.

THREAD: #SOTU is tonight. We're anticipating a lot of false information on taxes and how the economy is doing, as @realdonaldtrump has done every year (1/11)
LIE 1: When Trump was at #WEF in Davos, he boasted of an outlandish and completely false American economy and lied about how no one is benefiting more than the middle class (2/11) commondreams.org/views/2020/01/…
FACT 1: In reality, low- and middle-income folks are hurting the most. Republicans who voted for the #GOPTaxScam are benefiting from this terrible law because they gave themselves tax breaks by helping companies they were already invested in (3/11) publicintegrity.org/inequality-pov…

It’s time we break down the myth (promoted by Trump) and reality behind GOP tax cuts, which became law almost two years ago today. As Vice Chair @RepMaloney noted, “Americans would be right to feel cheated” by the tax law. This thread shows why. (1/7) jec.senate.gov/public/index.c…
TRUMP MYTH: Tax cuts would boost GDP growth to as high as 6% annually.

REALITY: In the seven quarters since the tax cuts became law, GDP growth has been the same as in the seven prior quarters—roughly 2.5%. #2YearsOfTCJA (2/7)
TRUMP MYTH: Tax cuts would spur massive growth in business investment.

REALITY: Business investment has decelerated since the tax cuts became law, even contracting in the past two quarters. #GOPTaxScam (3/7)

1/ I've been connecting some dots & thought I'd share
For the last week I've been feeling as though we'll see Trump not only Impeached but that the Senate WILL vote to remove Trump
I HATE Trump so I thought I'd be excited by this but I'm too focused on what may be coming next...
2/ First I trust Giuliani as far as I can throw him.
Speaking of throwing...when I look at how Rudy's 'helping' Trump its as if he's throwing Trump under the bus.
It makes me wonder, is Rudy sabotaging Trump?
I was surprised to learn that Trump may not actually be paying Rudy🤔
3/ Rudy's in a difficult divorce & his wife's divorce lawyer claims Rudy's working for free & actually losing money on Trumps travel🤔
NOBODY believes Rudy's working out of the goodness of his❤️
Rudy's wife thinks he's hiding money
So do I
But is he hiding💰or who he works for???

Indexing capital gains to inflation. Who knew those five words could make me so angry? But I finally was able to put my finger on where my low simmer of anger all day has come from...Surprise surprise, it's from Donald Trump. Again. Let me explain. (1/n)
Yesterday, Donald Trump proposed cutting taxes – for the rich – by indexing capital gains to inflation. And it's not the first time he's floated the idea. Why is it an idea that is sticking around? What does it mean? nytimes.com/2019/08/20/bus… (2/n)
Let's start with what "capital gains" are: They are the profits that investors make on assets like stocks & bonds. Say you bought a stock for $10k in 2009 and you sell it for $50k in 2019. Your capital gains is $40k and you are taxed on that $40k. (3/n)

I really don't think ppl understand the crisis trump's trade war has caused. Even if we elect a dem in 2020 the market share these farmers and other businesses have lost will likely be permanent. It will be up to a dem pres to tell em the hard truth and to try to find a solution.
trump has not only LOST his trade war he's killed entire markets for farmers and businesses for decades and decades to come. China has found other suppliers (Russia for example) and those new deals are likely to be in place for decades.
If you think it's bad for farmers NOW, wait until a dem pres has to clean up trump's trade war mess after he's deported all the migrants and US farmers and businesses have to compete with other countries who are using slave labor to grow those soybeans they are shipping to China

My friend @AdyBarkan is a hero not just to me, but to everyone whose health care he’s fought for. When the #GOPTaxScam was poised to cut Medicare—a program that millions of Americans rely on—Ady fought back hard. His story reminds us: We need #MedicareForAll.
Insurance companies sucked $23 billion out of our health care system last year. They profited on the backs of people like @AdyBarkan. Unfortunately, there are so many other stories like his. #DemDebate politico.com/magazine/story…
One third of donations made through @gofundme go towards helping people pay for health care—including plenty of families who have health insurance and still get hit with crushing medical bills. The system is broken. #DemDebate huffpost.com/entry/gofundme…
