‘House Democrats introduced a new proposal that would give middle class families a $2,000 tax cut that was immediately shot down by Speaker Of The House John Boehner’.
‘The Washington Post described the Democratic plan as a step towards addressing income inequality’:
“The centerpiece of the proposal, set to be unveiled Monday by Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), is a “paycheck bonus credit” that would shave $2,000 a year off the tax bills of couples earning less than $200,000”.
“Other provisions would nearly triple the tax credit for child care and reward people who save at least $500 a year”.
‘Speaker Boehner shot down the idea via a tweet from his spokesperson’:

Boehner spx Steel on Van Hollen plan: The last thing we need is a new trillion-dollar tax hike added to the current broken tax code.
‘Boehner’s position that tax cuts add to the deficit apparently only applies to tax cuts for the middle class because it was only last month that Speaker Boehner supported a $440 billion tax cut for corporations’.
“This is a song and dance that we have all heard before. For years, Republicans moaned and groaned about the deficit. They claimed that the nation was too broke to extend unemployment benefits, programs for the needy, or even expand veterans benefits”.
“Now that they are about to take control of Congress, Republicans have found enough cash to blow a $440 billion hole in the deficit by pushing a tax cut bill that his heavily slanted towards corporations”.(1)

‘Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a man who doesn’t believe climate change is real and who’s dad recently claimed evolution was a communist lie to “convince you that you came from a monkey” as a way to disprove God, will now oversee the subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness, including NASA. We’re screwed’.
‘In 2013, Cruz tried to slash funding to the space agency by sneaking an amendment into a spending authorization bill’.
‘Much of the research NASA has been conducting – from space and here on earth – has been focused on the devastating effects of climate change’.
‘Arguably, it’s the most important research of the 21st century, because those effects will have dire consequences for people and the planet in the decades to come’.
‘But the terrifying thing is this: Cruz doesn’t believe any of it’.
‘Unlike many of his conservative colleagues, Cruz doesn’t just believe climate change isn’t man-made, he doesn’t think it’s happening at all’.
‘In an interview with CNN last year, he was certain that he was right’:
“The last 15 years, there has been no recorded warming. Contrary to all the theories that they are expounding, there should have been warming over the last 15 years. It hasn’t happened,” said Cruz’.

FOX (cough) so called news host ‘Judge’ Jeanine Pirro
“I said that we need to bomb ISIS as it began its steamroll through Iraq. Bomb them, bomb them and bomb them again”!
PIRRO: “Our country’s response to this threat? The FBI destroys tens of thousands of documents deemed offensive to Islam! The CIA removes the word “Islamic” before “terrorist” in those Benghazi talking points. The Fort Hood massacre? The Oklahoma beheading? Both (airquotes) “workplace violence.”
(Raising her voice) “Are we morons? Of course, none of this should be a surprise given that our president invited the Muslim Brotherhood to fill the first two rows of his apology for being an American speech in Cairo in 2009”.
PIRRO: “This surrender is nothing more than a coward’s response to the fear of this fanatical terrorism”.
“And this political correctness will be the death of us. They can kill us but we can’t hurt their feelings? I’m surprised the president hasn’t signed a new executive order that simply says, “Don’t offend Muslims.”
“And make no mistake. As sure as I’m talking to you, there will be efforts to limit our First Amendment, our free speech, to comply with Sharia blasphemy laws, which call for death to those who slander the prophet Mohammed.
“And at a time when we have never been in more danger, our president is focused on free community college on his continuing march to reduce the size of the military and eviscerate our national security”.
First the recognition by the Smithsonian as one of the 100 most significant Americans of all time, and now speaking at Cambridge.
How close are we to rock bottom? When will we ridicule these people instead or honoring, worshiping them?
