If you thought the Republican bill so shamelessly signed is benign, consider that the next step Republicans plan is to gut Social Security and Medicare. Don’t think they won’t do it. It was their plan all along.

Sen. Rubio tells a secret: After giving a tax cut to the rich, GOP will cut Social Security and Medicare

THE G.O.P. PLAN:

My goal is to cut government in half in twenty-five years,
to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.

It’s not like we didn’t know the Republican plan for America - opps Amerika

The Job Killers
Why are Republicans determined to snuff the recovery?

Among the many ritual ablutions a Republican presidential contender must perform is the signing of Grover Norquist’s “Taxpayer Protection Pledge,” a document the length and subtlety of a bumper sticker that commits politicians to oppose “any and all efforts to increase taxes.” To date, all the GOP hopefuls, save Jon Huntsman, have signed on, as have 238 House members (99 percent of the GOP caucus), 41 senators, and more than 1,200 state legislators (PDF).

Don’t worry about it Lois, we’ll probably have a nuclear war before any of these cuts really kick in.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/02/asia/north-korea-trump/index.html

US President Donald Trump and his administration are “begging for nuclear war,” North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said Saturday.
Trump is “staging an extremely dangerous nuclear gamble on the Korean peninsula,” a Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a written statement that also calls Trump a “nuclear demon” and a “disruptor of global peace.”

And even though they made it possible for the lunatic who is now in the Oval Office to be there the Russians are pissed that the US is beefing up the missile defenses of Korea and Japan.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/russia-us-missile-defence-systems-japan-north-korea-concerned-putin-military-a8074031.html

Russia has criticised Japan for allowing a US military build-up in north Asia under the pretext of countering North Korean aggression.

Foreign minister Sergei Lavrov attacked Tokyo for allowing its territory to be used by the US military as a base for part of its missile defence system during a press conference with his Japanese counterpart in Moscow.

Japan’s foreign minister Taro Kono was forced to defend his country’s stance toward North Korea and its ties with the United States.

Want to know what it’s like to be ruled by a ruthless and deadly political system that is totally out of your control… just open your eyes, that is the ongoing nightmare for 99% of humanity.
