    Doctors Say Medicare For All Is The Best System For America

    Earlier this week, The Hill ran an op-ed by a physician here in the United States and this physician actually made the case as to why Medicare For All is the best possible system for the United States moving forward and more importantly, why a public option is basically trash. The doctor laid out three points. First and foremost, a public option does not lead to universal healthcare or savings, and that is true. As I have said in the past, if the government offers a program, but that program is not universal for everybody, and that program has a budget that comes up every year for a vote, because…

    Judge Says Obama & Trump Violated Constitution With Border Patrol Holding Facilities

    A federal judge in Arizona this week issued a stunning rebuke and condemnation of both the former Obama administration and the current Trump administration, when this judge ruled that the conditions in which migrants are being held at a Tucson customs and border patrol holding facility were in fact unconstitutional. Unconstitutional because we are depriving them of things like sanitary conditions, you know, personal hygiene items. We’re depriving them of sleep by not giving them blankets, not giving them clothing, not giving them mats to sleep on. They can sleep on the cold concrete floor. And the judge said this is unconstitutional and it’s important to point out, once again,…

    Sean Spicer Can’t Name A Single Legislative Accomplishment From Trump – The Ring Of Fire

    We’re a little more than a week away from Donald Trump’s 100-day mark of his time in office as the President of the United States. Yesterday during the White House press briefing, Sean Spicer was asked point-blank, “What do you think Donald Trump’s biggest legislative accomplishment has been in these 100 days? What kind of accomplishment should he be boasting about to the public?” Sean Spicer could not answer that question because I guess according to Sean Spicer, Donald Trump has accomplished approximately nothing since becoming President of the United States. Now, Spicer did talk about some of Trump’s executive orders, you know, I guess the ones that weren’t overturned…

    Democrats Introduce Legislation To Allow Shooting Victims To Sue Gun Makers

    Democrats in both the House and the Senate have put forward legislation that would actually repeal rules that are currently in place and have been in place since 2005 that give immunity to gun makers, gun manufacturers, gun sellers, ammunition wholesalers, all the people involved in the gun industry. Basically right now they have immunity from being sued by the victims and their families of shootings here in the United States. While House and Senate Democrats have come up with a piece of legislation called the equal access to justice for victims of gun violence act, that would basically take those protections and immunity away from the gun industry and…

    America Has A Space Force But Not Universal Healthcare

    Donald Trump’s space force, thanks to the recently passed military budget, is officially a thing. A couple of weeks ago, they tweeted out the official uniform of the space force, which not ironically I guess is camouflage, you know, incase the space forces up there in space and needs to hide in space forests. But nonetheless, the space force is actually a thing now and it’s forever going to be a part of Donald Trump’s legacy. And here’s the thing, representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, this past weekend on Twitter, made a brilliant observation. She said the following, the folks writing checks for a new space force are the same ones asking…

    Democrats Introduce Legislation Aimed At Crippling Trump’s Presidency

    While the new democratic majority congress is in session, if you know not all the government is open, but Democrats are in session and hell yeah, they are raring to go and they are raring to take down. Donald Trump, democratic representative Steve Cohen, actually within the first day and a half of being on the job this year, has introduced a series of bills that would create these constitutional amendments that would severely hinder the rest of Donald Trump’s presidency and to be perfectly honest, improve the overall state of American democracy. Here’s what these bills would do. First and foremost, there is a constitutional amendment to abolish the…

    Jeff Merkley HAMMERS Big Pharma With New Drug Price Legislation

    Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley has introduced legislation that would punish drug companies here in the United States if they do not lower their prescription drug prices. Here’s what’s so brilliant about this legislation that Merkley has put forward. I love this. I love what he’s doing with this. If drug companies do not lower prices of prescription drugs for American citizens to the same level at which people overseas pay for those drugs, then those drugs that were paying the exorbitant markup on will no longer be covered by Medicaid, medicare or the Va. Those are some of the largest markets for prescription drug sales here in the United States.…

    Mitch McConnell Stalls Opioid Legislation To Hurt Democrats In Midterms

    At this point, you would be very hard-pressed to find a single person in this country who would say that we do not have a problem with prescription opioid medications and the deaths that are resulting from the over-prescribing of these opioid medications. So, it makes you wonder, right, why we’re not seeing any action whatsoever from Congress. I mean, the House of Representatives a while back actually passed a measure to help the opioid crisis. They’ve just been waiting for weeks or months at this point for the Senate to do the same thing, so that they can get a bill to the President of the United States. Well,…
