    House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is willing to let the government shut down unless Congress passes a budget that funds the construction of a border wall along the southern U.S. border, Breitbart News, a far-right publication closely allied with the White House, reported Monday ...

    Long his father's attack dog, Trump Jr. now in eye of storm

    ... He has settled on a strategy out of his father's playbook: a strong counter-attack. He released the emails himself — although just minutes before they were set to be published by The New York Times — and appeared on Sean Hannity's program late Tuesday to defend himself in a typically Trump-friendly space ...

    Tillerson is as bad a Secretary of State as you’d expect the CEO of Exxon Mobil to be
    State Dept. science adviser quits amid fears the Trump administration is ruining the agency for ‘decades to come’


    Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and President Donald Trump are in the process of undermining the State Department “for decades to come,” as one employee put it in a recent survey.

    Tillerson’s embrace of a 30-percent budget cut for State coupled with his mismanagement has left departmental morale and influence at an all-time low, even while our foreign policy appears to be run more by the president’s erratic twitter account than a well-run State Department ...

    TRUMP’S TAX PLAN WOULD BE 23,500 TIMES BETTER FOR THE ULTRA-RICH THAN THE POOR
    Yes, really. It would also raise the deficit by $3.4 trillion


    ... Of course, we all know why, against all odds, the G.O.P. has stood by 45: tax cuts. Yes, the prospect of shrinking the government while simultaneously transferring trillions to the rich takes precedence over potentially punishing the president for any unsavory campaign dealings with a foreign government ...

Today, the C.B.O. reported that the same White House budget that the administration claimed would result in a $16 billion surplus by 2027 would actually result in a $720 billion deficit.The C.B.O. did note that the plan would cut government spending by $4.2 trillion over the next decade, and, to be fair, that’s a big cut (on the backs of, among others, the poor, the sick, and children) ...
