As the Republican Party moves toward Trump’s looniness — his xenophobia, isolationism, attacks on the press and on truth, conflicts of interest, anti-Muslim and racist provocations, climate-change denials, proposed cuts in Medicare and Medicaid, dismantling of the Affordable Care Act, and evisceration of the constitutional divide between church and state — Jamie Dimon and his ilk could come out big losers.

The Swarm's insight:

Why don't the skinflints, cheapskates and misers in the GOP leadership stand up for the needs of voters? It's because, between the kickbacks and the dark money, they have no need for you.

 

It doesn't matter whether you're a GOP constituent or not.

 

The middle class and working people don't pay GOP leaders enough to care, but the CEOs do. So when CEOs don't want Republican leaders to help the voting public, help doesn't come.

Trump and Republicans are preparing an all-out assault on the safety net - The Washington Post

In a new polling memo, the Center for American Progress Action Fund argues that this is a fight Democrats should want to have. The memo points out that social programs poll extremely well and that we’ve seen recently how much GOP attacks on those programs motivate voters. Health care was a central issue propelling Democrat Ralph Northam to victory in the Virginia governor’s race in November, and the Republicans’ attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act produced a huge backlash in large part because of the millions of Americans they wanted to toss off Medicaid.
