    Are you gonna' let this republican rigor mortis looking weirdo named "Granny" Mitch McConnell who presides over one of our most impoverished states called Kentucky, take away what you've earned over the course of your life ??

    I mean seriously, you must have known this was coming right ? All the experts and Dems warned you if republicans assumed complete control over your lives this atrocious intent to take away your earned benefits would be tops on their agenda right ?? Bozo Trump and republicans have been sabotaging your children's healthcare system for over 2 years now and it’s about time they attempt to sabotage our senior citizens only modest income stream right ?? How else did you expect Bozo Trump and republicans to pay for their abominable corporate welfare tax cut scam which transferred 2 trillion of our dollars to the filthy rich so they can ship it to foreign countries ?? Well, ready or not, here it comes, a major assault by republicans on the USA like we’ve never witnessed before and if they are successful, it will be the final demise of this once great nation

            That's just plain FALSE Sharlee01, but here's a verifiable fact for you, Bozo Trump and his Russian repugnantkins in congress have already added 1 trillion to our national debt by giving filthy rich un-patriotic slime bags a massive corporate welfare tax cut, they were given OUR money which will NEVER be used to improve the USA, but will be shipped to foreign lands for their benefit:

            President Obama did indeed spend money, but he used it to ensure ALL Americans could own a health insurance policy to be used for medical necessities and before Bozo was inserted by Vladimir Putin, we were well on our way to providing ALL Americans with an insurance policy:

            You act like a person who has never worked a full time job here in the USA because if you had, you'd be furious with "Mutt" McConnell Bozo Trump and ALL repugnantkins who will indeed slash social security and medicare if they hold complete power after NOV 6th:

              What an odd perspective!  And here I always thought that what I earned and built was MINE, not yours.  I'd have to say that one of those two concepts is rather unethical...

              "ALL Americans could own a health insurance policy to be used for medical necessities"

              LOL  You seem to have ignored that most of the poor can't use that wonderful insurance for anything at all because they first have to pay enormous deductibles (with money they don't have) before getting any benefit at all.  Obama pushed through something that was great for those huge insurance companies (don't you love people that give our money to Big Business?) but did nothing for the people that actually needed help with health care.  Convenient, though, when demonizing a great man for ending part of it.

          I don't care if they make adjustments to the age that one can begin to collect full benefits - Americans live longer lives now.  Most likely, that's the kind of "cut" in benefits they're talking about.

          Here are a few facts...
          "lol, yeah right more games Sharlee01, just like I can't seem to find any evidence that Bozo Trump is a legitimate president"
          Jake He is living in the WH, and occupying the oval office. He is our president. It's called the electoral college.
          "e·lec·tor·al col·lege
          noun
          (in the US) a body of people representing the states of the US, who formally cast votes for the election of the president and vice president.
          a body of electors chosen or appointed by a larger group."


          "FYI: If you've ever worked a fill time job in the USA I'd suggest you vote straight DEM from top to bottom as if your life depended upon it because it does: If you've earned social security and medicare benefits and Satan succeeds in helping republicans maintain control of congress those hard earned benefits will be under attack just like our healthcare system is under attack by Bozo Trump in just another act of domestic terrorism by republican 'Mutt' McConnell as he and republicans try to drive the entire nation into poverty just like he drove his state of Kentucky straight into the dirt:"

          Jake no other president in history has borrowed the amount Obama borrowed from our SS. Fact ugly but true...

          Yes, it is true the Trump agenda does include ending Obamacare. This was just one of the reasons Trump won... There are many American's that do not want the Government spending SS to fund health insurance. I pay for mine I expect others to do the same. Trump had nothing to do with creating the huge problems with our failing SS. That was Dems and their giveaways... Just a fact. Trump has made mention that he will work on saving the program, so I would think McConnel would have a very hard time "gunning for SS...

                    And I can't fathom a failure of a Kentucky senator named Mitch "Mutt" McConnell presiding over a tiny little McDonald's franchise let alone federal gargantuan life saving programs such as social security and medicare which he plans to decimate if republicans God forbid maintain control of congress on NOV 6th:

                    There should be rules which prohibit incompetent, Wall Street owned politicians like him from becoming senate leaders: He should be forced to clean up his own state of Kentucky which is the 5th poorest in the country before he's God forbid allowed to wreck retirement programs that have saved the lives of millions of Americans for decades:

              Your article is poorly researched, the author gives nothing of substance, no facts...  Her first sentence "Working families shouldn't have to pay for the GOP tax bill. The rich and big corporations must pay their fair share of taxes!" This is factually incorrect.  In reality president, Trump has vowed to make every attempt to save SS. He has serval ideas on how to stop the failing program from getting worse. Trump was certainly not responsible for the mess SS is in. That blue ribbon goes to many presidents before him. Trump has already made our economy and worth better. I will have a wait and see on what he will do with SS.  It is very clear you grab on to if comes Jake.
              "Working families shouldn't have to pay for the GOP tax bill. The rich and big corporations must pay their fair share of taxes!"

              We should not have to pay for flowers BS giveaways the Dems have a long history of dishing up. Many of us dislike giveaways and don't want to pay for them.

              "Face reality" Obama doubled the debt with his Obamacare and borrowed from SS to do it. That's reality. "You can keep your doctor"... He all but ruined this country with his "all kind of crazy".

      Sorry Ed Fisher, but just like I don't believe a word serial liar Bozo Trump says, the same goes for you and yes, of course you're getting an increase in your social security benefits because the Dems have so far protected it for you and future generations but it won't be protected for long if the Cons maintain control of congress and rigor mortis Mitch McConnell has already pledged to take away that increase and more:

      McConnell is an abominable senator from desperately impoverished Kentucky where people live in run down shacks if they're lucky , that should explain everything for you: How else did Kentucky become one of the poorest states in the union?

      If you've really worked a day in the USA you'd be OUTRAGED at ALL republicans:

      The fact is, republicans rigor mortis McConnell and spaced out Rand Paul preside over one of the most impoverished states in this crumbling country called Kentucky and they both want to do for this nation as they did for their constituents, drive everyone into poverty while giving our money to their elite filthy rich donors:

                I take full responsibility for everything I say and do. I call the president what he is. I don't lump "the left" and "the right" into meat little boxes like you and others here repeatedly do. The only person I ever call a name is President Trump. He is a documented liar, so that is accurate. He admits to grabbing women's pussies against their will, and that is disgusting. He admits to walking in on teenage girls in varying stages of undress, and that is disgusting. He uses the presidency to belittle his fellow Americans, and that is low. He labels the free press "the enemy of the people" and that is what authoritarian dictators do. The only name I use for him that is simply my opinion is POS. I stand by it and take full responsibility for it.

                Like my sweet mom said, "sometimes you have to call a snake a snake."

                This man is not worthy of America. I have said it from the beginning and I will keep saying it. If you think that is hate speech, but our own President labeling the media "the enemy of the people" is not, then you all have a serious problem understanding what history has demonstrated time and again.

                You Trump apologists can continue to not believe your lying eyes, but don't expect the rest of us to join in.

                  As to Trump. You can call him a liar. He is, at times. Sometimes, he isn't lying. And he is called a liar anyway. I think that is wrong and unfair. You don't. I get that.

                  His comment on grabbing things was vulgar. You don't remember, but prior to the end of the primaries I stated I couldn't support the man, unless Hillary was the other part of the equation. I chose disgusting by your standards (and mine) over what I considered to be too dangerous an alternative to imagine. I can live with that.

                  Trump does belittle others. I find it abhorrent. He is not alone in insulting others. As a white woman who voted against Hillary I can say I have been belittled by quite a few more on the left, than just one person. I find that offensive also. Trump is not responsible for those insults.

                  You say Trump is not worthy of America. I say America is above being poor sports and finding every possible reason to deride him. We are above these insults. You want any to support your outrage? Don't be partisan when displaying it. Call it out all the way around.
