Republicans now coming after our benefits

The People are not the problem.
The Republicans are the problem.

The Trump and Republican Tax Plan is simple to understand: it's Robin Hood in reverse. 

You know the story: Robin Hood and his band of merry men would take from the rich to give to the poor.

Today's story is not so pretty for the middle class: Trump and his evil band of Republicans are on the edge of passing their new tax plan that will take from the poor and the middle class (who are barely scrapping by just about every legitimate economic standard) and give it to the richest people and the most powerful corporations, who, of course as we all know, need it the least of all.

One billionaire has said so loud and clear in a number of television ads promoting that Americans do something about their impending financial demise. Visit or Click Here>

It's beyond belief but it is happening right before our very eyes. Nonetheless, people are denying that it is brazen, craven and wrong. Bank robbers would be so lucky as to be able to run off with so many billions of dollars that the Republicans and billionaire Trump are able to cart away. "Lock them up" may well become the new refrain once well-meaning, naive Americans finally face up to the truth that they have been played like the fools that they are.

Another way of saying it is that Trump the Bully Billionaire and his lying band of Republicans will transfer the money of the middle class to the pockets of the wealthy.

They will do this by brazenly charging the middle class higher taxes and then give that money to the richest people and corporations who will have their taxes lowered. 

The Republican tax plan is not tax reform. The Republican tax plan is a transfer of wealth scheme.

It's that simple. It's that direct. It's that arrogant. It's that evil. It's that wrong.

That's why the Republicans are the problem. That's why the People are the solution.

That's why Trump and his Republicans must be stopped. See if you don't agree with what good people have researched and discovered.

Yes, it's Robin Hood in reverse.

And we must understand that truth. For that reason, we as a nation must resist and fight against Trump and his Republicans who are not only liars, but are unAmerican in destroying the American Dream for us and our children and our grandchildren. They are, in the final analysis, nothing more than crooks.

Perhaps I'm just talking to windmills.

Perhaps the Republicans will win and make the rest of us poor ghosts of what we used to be as a nation. I hope not. I will continue to push back and speak up as long as I am able and willing and healthy enough to do so. To fight is a young person's sport, but even the aged and the ill must do what they can to push against this corruption which is almost beyond words. But not quite yet.

Republicans now coming after your benefits | The trusted media and knowledgeable people who care about saving the American Dream and preserving the financial wellness of the middle class are predicting that after the Republican tax plan passes and becomes the law of the land, Americans will discover that they have taken massive amounts of money for the middle class by increasing their taxes and cutting their deductibles, and in turn will give it to the rich and corporations — and in the process the new tax bill of the Republicans will explode the deficit. Then comes the real bad news: The Republicans and Trump will then say that we, the middle class, will have to reduce the debt. And the only way to do that, these lying Republicans will say, is to take away our Social Security, whittle away our Medicare, demolish as quickly as they can our Medicaid, and chop apart any safety net for the people that Republicans say is too expensive. We are the richest country in the world. The People are not problem. They have made this country great. The Republicans are the problem. | More>


The People have earned, fought for and died for these benefits that Republican Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Paul Ryan calls it "welfare." Social Security is not welfare. It was earned and paid for by those Americans who worked. Ryan calls Medicare welfare. It is not. It too is a program to which Americans are entitled because we through our taxes paid for it. Ryan at best is wrong in his thinking; Ryan at worst is so wrong he is corrupt and evil

Social Security, Medicare, Medicare and other safety net programs are not merely gifts granted from kings and queens to their peasants, as Trump and his Republican-dominated Congress would have us bullied into believe. They are wrong. Our wages have beeb held in safe keeping by a better government than this government is today. That good U.S. government was from another time when workers were respected for what they had done to make America great, and the workers in turn respected the government. No longer. The people have been lied to long enough. Things must and will change. This Trump and Republican tax plan will not stand.

We The People have earned these benefits ever since FDR's New Deal and Johnson's Great Society put them into place, as they should have. But every since then, the Republicans have declared war on the middle class.

At first Republicans were quiet about it. But over time, and especially nowadays since they now occupy dominate power in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, the Presidency and have illegally stacked the U.S. Supreme Court when they stole the selection of the latest Supreme Court Justice from the Democrats. That should be reversed when the Democrats return to power. What the Republicans did to steal that Supreme Court seat was beyond despicable; it was against the spirit if not literally against the U.S. Constitution. For that, Republican leaders, should be impeached and indicted.

Decades ago, the greedy, rich, power-hungry Republicans had started and continue today on with what is now nothing short of a Class War against the middle class. And it's time for the middle class to understand this fact, as sad and as horrible as it is. But this is what is going on. That is where we find ourselves today.

Now is the time for all good men and women to fight against injustice of the Republicans. They are ethically and morally bankrupt.

Follows are facts as published by a number of responsible news sources to help us better understand what is going on and what we need to do to counter the injustice and obstruction of justice by Trump and his not so merry men and women.

We who resist Trump and the Republicans must get educated. To do so will make us more effective. To do so will increase our chances of making the changes this country so sorely needs now.

Join the fight to save the American Dream from utter destruction. Before it is too late. If not us, then who. If not now, then when. Someone very smart once said that, and it holds true today. Join the fight. Occupy Wall Street. Resist. is a good place to start if you haven't yet joined the fight against Trump and his very, very bad band of lying Republicans. It will give you some place from which to begin to make your stand.


Republicans now want to take away the middle class's Medicare and Social Security | After their tax giveaway to the rich and corporations, the Republicans, led by the lying Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, will be coming after your Social Security and Medicare. That's the long and short of it in economist Paul Krugman's Dec. 4, 2017, column, entitled "Republicans Are Coming for Your Benefits" in | More>

Stop the Republicans war on the working class | The National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM), a trusted and independent source of information, keeps readers up to date about how the Trump and Republicans are rigging the system to tax the middle class more in this new tax plan and transfer that money to the rich and corporations. It's true. You have to look at what the Republicans are doing, not at what they are saying. Liars lie. The truth is the truth. Take the time to see that the Republicans have a wicked game plan that they have now set in motion to make the national debt so large because of their giveaway to the rich and corporations, that they will turn around and say we must as a nation reduce the debt that they created. Just watch how the next lies from Republicans will be them trying to convince you that you are the problem, that you must give up your Medicare. That you must have your Medicaid payments slashed. The your Social Security payments that you have earned will be called by manipulative Republicans that they are welfare. They are entitlements that rightfully carry the term "entitlement" because we the people have paid into it and we are entitled to it. It must not be cut. What needs to be cut are the Republicans in office; they must be voted against in 2018 and 2020 and be cut out of their job. Because they are doing a horrible job of helping the average American. The solution for middle class Americans is to elect representatives and senators, at the national level, at the state level, at the local level, who will help to tax the rich more, and provide greater opportunity for Americans to be able to afford healthcare and higher education so they can get better jobs and earn more money to take care of themselves and their loved ones. Do something good for yourself for a change. Do something different and new, such as visit to find out more about the arrogance of the Republicans to crush the middle class and even the upper middle class. Knowledge is power. Educate yourself. | More>

Paul Ryan says Republicans to reduce welfare, Medicare, Medicaid spending in 2018 | The Republicans have not even finalized their tax plan to financially crush the middle class by increasing their taxes and then giving them to the wealthy and corporations who will be paying less taxes. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from Wisconsin, talks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time. The Chicago Tribune in its Dec. 6, 2017, article explains what Democrats and others who care about the middle class predict will be coming down the road immediately after the tax plan is passed.
