I hope this happens too. We cannot afford insurance, so we pay the penalty, which leaves us less disposable income to pay for any medical expenses (or anything else for that matter).

I wish this could pass, too - but it may be a "poison pill" so that McConnell and company can have an excuse not to pass this part of the Trump agenda. Remember that the GOPe RINOs are the Washington Generals to the Democrat Harlem Globetrotters. They only serve as a foil to provide a veneer of legitimacy to the UniParty "game".

It´s a head fake, it goes to committee and when it comes back to the senate the resistance will vote against it even though they voted for it.

I give the tax bill less than a 20% chance of ever passing. DACA will be the only thing passing by 2018 elections. The easiest thing for these politicians to do is spit in our faces.

The uniparty thinks they can sucker Trump in to signing a CoC tax bill with this little tidbit thrown in to stroke his ego. Aint going to happen.

Trump picks immigration hardliner
Tom Homan as ICE director
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Todd J. Gillman    Original Article
Posted By: Lucky5- 11/14/2017 5:46:07     Post Reply
President Trump on Tuesday named immigration hardliner Tom Homan, who has served nearly 10 months as acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to run ICE on a permanent basis. Homan has run the agency since Obama appointee Sarah Saldaña — the former U.S. attorney in Dallas — stepped down when Trump took office in January. He has been a public face of the administration´s crackdowns on immigrants and border security, a tough talking law enforcement careerist who is unapologetic about being "heartless" when it comes to deporting even the most sympathetic longtime U.S. residents.

The most remarkable thing about the current tide of sexual assault and harassment accusations is not their number. If every woman in America started talking about the things that happen during the course of an ordinary female life, it would never end. Nor is it the power of the men involved; history instructs us that for countless men, the ability to possess women sexually is not a spoil of power; it’s the point of power. What’s remarkable is that these women are being believed. Most of them don’t have police reports or witnesses or physical evidence; many of them are recounting

The first thing you’ll see when you walk into Eaton Workshop, a hotel opening in late spring 2018 in Washington, is a custom-commissioned video art installation by AJ Schnack, shown on a series of vintage-style television screens. All day long, it’ll broadcast a montage of footage from the presidential elections of 2012 and 2016 that’s built around one pointed question: How did our country get where it is today? It’s not a subtle statement, and it’s not meant to be.

The Democrats have two very different profiles. One is their public face of absolute moral purity. They’re just better people than Republicans. That’s what you’re buying when you walk into the Democratic store: pure virtue. They’ve got nothing else on the shelves. No beef jerky, no wiper fluid, no Gatorade. The other profile is reality: In the backroom, where the employees eat lunch, the Democrats and their fat-cat donors are committing unspeakably sleazy and immoral acts. Everyone on the left knows this. That’s why, the moment Harvey Weinstein was exposed as a sexual predator, his reflexive response was not to apologize. Accused of

The Country Music Association Awards got very political very quickly when the hosts opened Wednesday night´s show by mocking President Donald Trump Country music superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the 51s annual awards show by wearing eclipse sunglasses, poking fun at the commander-in-chief - who at one point looked at August´s solar eclipse without wearing eye protection. The pair also sang an opening song with the lyrics ´Maybe next time he´ll think before he tweets´, a play on Underwood´s hit song ´Before He Cheats´.

It was the middle-finger salute seen around the world. Juli Briskman’s protest aimed at the presidential motorcade that roared past her while she was on her cycling path in Northern Virginia last month became an instantly viral photo. Turns out it has now cost the 50-year-old marketing executive her job. On Halloween, after Briskman gave her bosses at Akima LLC, a government contracting firm, a heads-up that she was the unidentified cyclist in the photo, they took her into a room and fired her, she said, escorting her out of the building with a box of her things. “I wasn’t

WASHINGTON (AP) — Special counsel Robert Mueller´s grand jury is investigating a prominent Democratic lobbyist and a former GOP congressman for their involvement in an influence campaign on behalf of Ukrainian interests tied to Paul Manafort, according to a person with direct knowledge of the investigation. At the center of the widening probe are Tony Podesta, a longtime Democratic operative, and Vin Weber, a former GOP congressman and leader of his own high-powered lobbying firm, Mercury LLC. The two men were hired as part of a multimillion-dollar lobbying effort directed by Manafort and longtime associate Rick Gates. With the emphasis on the

Top lawyers from Facebook and Twitter said Tuesday that Russian-linked posts and advertisements placed on the social networks after Election Day sought to sow doubt about President Donald Trump´s victory. Facebook general counsel Colin Stretch told a Senate Judiciary panel that content generated by a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency after Nov. 8 centered on “fomenting discord about the validity of [Trump’s] election.” That´s a change from Russia´s pre-election activity, which was largely centered on trying to denigrate Hillary Clinton, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a January report.

After months of getting themselves worked up about hearings featuring a hero once accused of rigging the election for Donald Trump and Don Jr.´s inability to sniff out Nigerian prince emails, spectators of the Russia game have finally gotten what they wanted: indictments. Unfortunately, the indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Richard Gates have nothing whatever to do with "collusion," however broadly defined. Politically speaking, we have learned nothing except what we already knew: namely, that a shady businessman who briefly worked for the Trump campaign is, in fact, a very shady businessman indeed, one

Less than 24 hours after Kevin Spacey announced to the world that he is a gay man in an attempt to deflect from sexual assault allegations, Netflix has announced that they are cancelling his show ´House of Cards´ after its sixth season, which is currently in production. This news comes after Spacey made the decision to come out of the closet in a statement apologizing to actor Anthony Rapp, who said in an interview that the actor attempted to sexually assault him in 1986, an incident Spacey says he does not remember.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com.

(Snip) The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday the following: The tension has grown so severe that the topic of removing Jones has been discussed by at least some owners, according to three people familiar with the matter.
