Friday – Bottomless.

WASHINGTON, DC – DECEMBER 6: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) (Drew Angerer/Getty Images) Quote from https://eand.co/why-is-america-the-worlds-most-uniquely-cruel-society-f67afc5c6b9a

Maybe she’d better hold off on squandering the $78 total on a Costco membership. She may need to save it to offset higher medical bills, or the loss of all the “entitlement” programs Paul Ryan is planning to slash…

The House is expected to vote on a “balanced budget” amendment after they return from recess. It is expected that the amendment would have no chance of passing, since it would need Democratic votes, then ratification by three-fourths of the states in the U.S. However, we should take nothing for granted.

(Wapo) “A balanced-budget amendment to the Constitution would require that every year the federal budget would have to be balanced, no matter what: no borrowing, not a dollar more spent than the government receives in taxes. It’s one of the worst ideas anyone in Washington ever had, but it’s particularly absurd coming from the GOP.”  Continue reading “Friday – Bottomless.”

Stand Against the #TrumpTaxScam at the Government Center!

Bring your signs, your voice, a friend — and, if you can, a “mask” of your favorite “fat cat!” Oh, and a big, clever check!

When: Friday, November 10, 1-3PM
Where: Ventura Government Center, Corner of Victoria and Telephone
800 S. Victoria, Ventura, CA 93003

Let’s get a crowd! SHARE, SHARE, SHARE the Facebook Event Page! https://www.facebook.com/events/151158868827524 <–click in to let us know you’re coming!

The #TrumpTaxScam is a DISASTER-of-a-giveaway-to-fat-cat-Republican-donors (surprise, surprise). It adds $1.5 trillion to the deficit — which will force deep cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security down the road — all to give huge tax cuts to the wealthy, corporations — and to Donald Trump himself.

We can, and must, kill this bill with constituent power. The tax fight and the healthcare fight are the SAME FIGHT. And, just like with healthcare, we can defeat it with nationwide constituent power. On our own home turf!

See you there!

Print out your mask – and affix it to a stick:
