That tax law that's bankrupting the country? Yeah, still not helping the GOP - DailyKos.com | Backstabber Watch | Scoop.it
Most Americans have not been fooled by the GOP's tax con, according to new polling from PPP. A majority, 51 percent believe it will mostly benefit the wealthy (true!) while just 30 percent say it will help middle class and only seven percent believe it...
The Destroyer at #OpDejaVu's insight:

The moral of this story: GOP leaders shouldn't continue to behave as if their constituents are helpless and stupid. No one likes being conned. Nobody.

3 Reasons to be Concerned about the USDA’s Proposed GMO Labeling Rules - CivilEats.com

3 Reasons to be Concerned about the USDA’s Proposed GMO Labeling Rules - CivilEats.com | Backstabber Watch | Scoop.it
Food labels help consumers quickly discern whether their food contains gluten, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, trans-fats, or MSG. This same right to know should be clearly offered for foods that are genetically engineered (“GE” or “GMO”), especially since polls consistently show that Americans overwhelmingly believe they have the right to know if their food is GE, with roughly 90 percent regularly voicing support for mandatory GMO labeling as a result of concerns about health, food safety, and environmental impacts from GE foods.

That’s why the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) long-awaited proposed regulations for GMO labeling on food are so surprising.

"Some leaders get a rise


when they tell bold-faced lies 


to unsuspecting constituents 


who don't yet realize 


that once the election was hacked 


they became obsolete. 


If they don't do something soon 


they'll be living on the streets." - Mister Al

Here's an idea for a new Monopoly card: Do not pass go. Do not collect dark money to use as bail money. Do not consult lobbyists unless they're your lawyers and not under investigation. Go directly to jail.

House GOP Quietly Introduces Legislation To Gut Medicare, Repeal ACA - CrooksAndLiars.com

House GOP Quietly Introduces Legislation To Gut Medicare, Repeal ACA - CrooksAndLiars.com | Backstabber Watch | Scoop.it
The budget would transform Medicaid, the federal-state health-care program for the poor, by limiting per capita payments or allowing states to turn it into a block-grant program — the same approach House Republicans took in their legislation that passed last year to repeal the Affordable Care Act (the repeal effort died in the Senate, but the GOP budget assumes the repeal takes place). It also proposes adding work requirements for certain adults enrolled in Medicaid. Changes to Medicaid and other health programs would account for $1.5 trillion in savings.

Social Security comes in for more modest cuts of $4 billion over the decade, which the budget projects could be reached by eliminating concurrent receipt of unemployment benefits and Social Security disability insurance.
