Florida: Land of Sunshine but Home of Dumb Legislators

Tuesday, February 20th, the Florida House of Representatives debated and then voted to declare pornography a “public health risk.” These same representatives then refused to take up a bill to ban assault weapons and large-capacity magazines. They did this while students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were watching from the gallery.

Truly dumb.

Remember when the Republicans were maniacal about government debt?

The meme that Republicans are better with government finance is dead. Dead I tell you. Those Republicans voted today to add from $1,500,000,000,000 to $2,000,000,000,000 to the national debt. That's $1.5 to $2 TRILLION. Remember that next fall in the 2018 elections.

Watch out. Next Paul Ryan will be coming for your Social Security. Or your Medicare. Just watch.

How to pay for massive tax giveaways to corporations and the wealthy

The massive tax giveaways for corporations and the wealthy will be paid for by throwing 13 million people off health insurance. 

If that isn't enough (it isn't) then cut $400 billion from Medicare. 

If that still isn't enough (and it still isn't enough), raise taxes in over 10 years on 92 million middle-class families.

Look at the tax bill just passed. The obsequious Republicans own this disaster.
