House GOP blocks effort by Democrats to obtain Trump's taxes

Source: MSN News

WASHINGTON — House Republicans on Tuesday blocked another attempt by Democrats to obtain President Donald Trump's tax returns from the IRS.

House Democrats tried for a third time to use a procedural vote to pry loose Trump's returns. Republicans thwarted the effort, 228-190, on a mostly party-line vote.

The vote happened as the House Ways and Means Committee debated a similar motion to get Trump's tax returns. That effort was expected to fail as well.

DNC Asks All Staffers For Resignation Letters


Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez has launched a major reshuffling of the party's organization that has been stung by recent crisis — and the DNC has requested the resignation letters of all current staffers be submitted by next month....

Earlier this month, Perez held a meeting to discuss the issue with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sanders, both of whom supported Ellison in the DNC chair race, along with Ellison, Sanders aides Jeff Weaver and Larry Cohen, and others.

Schumer, pointing to Ellison and Sanders, told Perez, "If he's happy, and if he's happy, then I'm happy," according to two sources.

Mom described her stretch marks as glitter stripes,

We’re ready to make this a trend.

Teaching your kids to be body-positive can be difficult when you’re still training yourself to stop listening to the fat-shaming voice that most women have programmed in their brains. Luckily, Allison Kimmey, a mom and body-positivity advocate, has shown us how it’s done after she told her daughter that her stretch marks are called “glitter stripes,” and that they’re something a woman earns with age.


Imagine a world full of kids like Cambelle who grow up into adults who believe — scratch that — know that “every body is a good body!” We could live in a wonderful land of self-love and lots and lots of pizza.

Democrats introduce the 'MAR-A-LAGO Act'


A group of Democratic members of Congress are playing the clever acronym game again.


One of the latest to be introduced and to target the Trump administration: the "Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act."

Yes, the "MAR-A-LAGO Act."

The legislation would require the publication of White House visitor logs, something that was done regularly by the Obama administration but has since ended since President Trump took office.

Any connection between Freedom Caucus and Kochs with Bannon, Brieitbart ?

Could some of you educate me as to whether any of the above are connected to any of the others? It would seem they would have the same goals. Maybe the Kochs want world domination and Bannon wants Russian domination?

So help me out DU... Thanks.

Pet Adoption Saves Lives. Theirs and ours..

Lingerie Company Asked to Remove Ads Featuring Curvy & Disabled Models


“Body shaming is real.”

So declares the women behind the Georgia-based lingerie company LiviRae, who were allegedly asked to remove photos of curvy and differently-abled models from their Kennesaw storefront.

LiviRae CEO Molly Hopkins told Today that the shop’s property manager told her the photos featured in the company’s latest body-positive campaign, Real Bras, Real Women, Real Stories, were “in poor taste.”
