JOY REID: "The two parties are NOT the same."

@JoyAnnReid

They’re not done. And they won’t stop until they take it all: your healthcare, Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security, in the service of themselves and their super rich donors. Elections matter, folks. The two parties are NOT the same.

CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – Vandals left their mark on a mosque in New Mexico and what they wrote on that mosque is raising eyebrows.

On the corner of Mitchell and Ninth street in Clovis sits the Golden Mosque. This past weekend, vandals paid a visit to the building. A neighbor noticed the vandalism right away Monday morning.

“I pass by this every day and it was about 7:30 this morning, and of course you’re going to notice big red spray paint,” said Toni Pop.

The red spray paint reads, “Happy Birthday Jesus Christ. From a real Christain.” On the front of the building, the vandal wrote: “Trump” on the door, while misspelling “Christian” again on the front sign.

If Dems don't run on THIS shit next year.....

VAN HOLLEN: Look, George, this is a total betrayal of President Trump's economic populist message on the campaign trail. It's a huge giveaway to big corporations. Millions of middle class tax payers will see their taxes go up, even though Republicans promised that would not happen. Millionaires will get an average annual tax break of $35,000 a year. And the big winners are those corporations. And I think many people haven't focused on the fact that 35 percent of the shareholders of those corporations are actually foreign stock holders, who in the year 2019, are going to get a $31 billion tax break.

So millions of American taxpayers handing over money to foreign stock holders.
It doesn't sound like America first to me. It doesn't sound like the middle class first.


- Senator Chris Van Hollen, about the tax so-called legislation.

The Final Tax Bill Is a Bigger Win for Foreign Investors Than the Entire Working and Middle Class in Trump States

The story

https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/economy/news/2017/12/19/444363/final-tax-bill-bigger-win-foreign-investors-entire-working-middle-class-trump-states/

President Donald Trump claimed in a November speech promoting his tax plan that his focus “is on helping the folks who work in the mailrooms and the machine shops of America. … The people that like me best.” But in reality, the final tax bill that emerged late Friday from the conference committee focuses on corporations and the wealthy. According to the Tax Policy Center (TPC), the top 1 percent of families by income would receive a larger share of the bill’s cuts in the first year than the bottom 60 percent of families combined. And in fact, state-level data from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) show that in 2019, the bill would give $5 billion more to foreign investors who own corporate stock than the combined families in the bottom 80 percent of the income distribution in every state that voted for President Trump.
