Debbie, Paul, Bill and Hillary...

WTF? Seriously, it just keeps getting worse for the middle class and below. The only good thing about it is that we are getting closer to the real soul of the Democratic Party elite who are now in a position to defend strip mining the middle class and below to feed the children of the 1%.

Seriously, that's EXACTLY what is happening.

From the bullshit premise that locking up kids for minor offenses is reducing poverty, to worrying about Donald Trump's college age kids when the real issue that it can cost $100K for a 4 year degree at a state school, (does he even have any?), to the defense of our horrible, awful medical system propped up by the Democratic Party elite who are happy to see us suffer while they suck down $300,000 speaking fees, to the pay day loan scams set up to take advantage of the Wall Street sleaze and corruption defended by Bill, Hillary and now Paul - he's attempting to rewrite history in an almost hilarious, backfiring effort to align it with Hillary Clinton's made up story about the virtues of Wall Street. The dude may be smart, but it's a mistake to assume we are all that fucking stupid. Jesus, the arrogance of these guys!

In Debbie's case, she's supported the policies driving education, medical and housing costs out of reach and then gets on her knees in front of Congress to beg for the Pay Day Loan scammers charging 100% interest and more. Notice any conflict of interest there?

And you wonder where Trump gets his power?

The Democratic National Committee is enabling him. We ARE being held hostage with Hillary Clinton as a candidate - the pragmatic lesser of two evils, a false choice.

Goddamn it Bill, its our turn to tell you to STFU. Go spend your money, paint your toes in the bathtub, just stop making things worse for American families.

How can we possibly sustain a government system so transparently corrupt?

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Idaho, Nevada and Utah have among the nation's highest interest rates for payday loans, according to a new report.

The study, released this week by the Pew Charitable Trusts, found their rates are so high mainly because they're among only seven states that impose no legal limits on them.

Idaho payday lenders charge an average 582% annual interest on their loans to lead the nation, The Salt Lake Tribune reported.

That's followed by South Dakota and Wisconsin, both 574%; Nevada, 521%; Delaware, 517%; and Utah, 474%.

Among states with storefront payday lenders, the lowest average interest charged is Colorado at 129%, which matches its legal limit. The next lowest are Oregon at 156% and Maine at 217%.

Fifteen states either ban payday loans or cap interest rates at 36%. None of them has any storefront lenders.

2. So if I've got this straight, loan sharks are charging 500% interest and a Dem is protecting them?


If our tent has room for such support then our tent is too damn big.

And people post that those who see too little differences between the parties are the problem.
