Regarding the healthcare monies being bloc granted back to the states.
If I understand this right, this bill continues to collect most of the ACA taxes,and removes most of the mandates, but block grants the money back to the states in a fair and just manner. Why not sunset the ACA in three years? This would give the states time to organize and implement their heath care services and fund them. Adding a sunset will also encourage the states to use fiscal sanity while providing good service to their people. Replacing our tax code with a flat lower tax on everyone,including business,getting rid of the inheritance tax , free repatriation investment monies, along with continued trade and regulator reforms will create the great jobs that puts all Americans and immigrants back to work and will provide healthcare benefits that will decrease medicaid and subsidized healthcare rolls.
What were the lies that started the ignorant disrespectful kneeling protests at sports events? It all began after Barack Obama and the Democrats told America and the world that America was an inherently racist nation and our law enforcement brutalized our black families and immigrant families. Nothing could be further from the truth, but the lies continued, starting with the Florida Trayvon death. Despite being found not guilty, the court of public opinion,incited by our President lies, demonized and harassed a man for defending himself. How many times do you allow a wanna be thug teenager to bash your head into the sidewalk before you shoot him? Then came the Ferguson event. Despite a court saying it was self defense& Brown used his substantial body as a weapon, the court of public opinion, again incited by our President, demonized and harassed the policeman. Having beat on the policeman once and trying to gain possession of the gun, Brown turned and charged to finish the policeman off. The policeman shot him in self defense, but Obama and the Democrats made it a race and police brutality issue.There was NO “Hands Up Don’t Shoot”. After that, came the Garner case in NYC. Mayor DeBlasio insisted that the police shut down the sale of black market cigarettes. Garner died while the police tried to enforce DeBlasio’s stupid order. Garner was so unhealthy, he did not survive his own resistance to the arrest. There was no choke hold and yet our President lied and incited our people with half truths and smearing innuendo. And finally, the prosecutor in Baltimore insisted the police clean up the sale of drugs on the city street corners. The police arrested a known drug dealer, who was high and tossed himself about so that he could claim police brutality, like he had done before. The activist prosecutor charged the policemen, but all six were found not guilty. Again, despite a court saying the police were innocent, Obama and his ban of Democrat agitators incited the mob to violence with their deceitful rhetoric filled with lies, half truths and innuendo.
What were the results of Obama’s lies? He imposed more Federal oversight and regulations on our police departments, more centralized government. He divided our nation. He caused our people to disrespect, distrust the police officers that protect them. He caused violent, destructive protests and riots with his lies. He and Democrats did the same with our immigrant populations. Why would he do this? Why would Barack Obama and Democrat leadership divide and destabilize our nation? Because he and they are Marxist Revolutionaries, that is why. Obama and Democrats seek to replace our self governance, representative government, individual rights and sovereignty with governance by leftist elites using unelected, authoritarian Global and Federal Bureaucracies. We have only to look at how Obama governed to know that this is true. Barack Obama used the bureaucracies as political weapons against his opposition, including the DOJ, IRS,FBI, ATF and FISA powers.
As for the ignorant kneelers who disrespect our flag, our anthem, our people,our military, our law enforcement and our nation with their protest built on the lies of Obama, sadly, they are the useful idiots of the marxist revolutionaries. Shamefully, the NFL kneelers chose to demonize our nation at a world event in London today. As for the owners and managers again appeasing the radical left’s bullying, reap what you have allowed. Loss of revenue. I wont be watching sports and I wont be paying for a seat. Goodbye. America is rejecting the unwholesomeness and unpatriotic views of the professional players who continually insult those that defend them, both here and abroad. The entitled kneelers are ungrateful to a nation that defends them and gives them the opportunity to succeed. When the kneelers show respect and allegiance to their nation, I will forgive them. For now, I have no patience with them. .
Regarding DACA: For eight years, we had a President who told our bureaucracies to not enforce our laws, including our Immigration Laws. For eight years we had a President who made his own laws by executive orders. Why our Judiciary and Congress allowed this unconstitutional behavior, I do not know. Indeed for decades, Congress has ignored the need to modernize our Immigration system and make it more merit based and answer our economic needs in an efficient and timely manner . Legislating is Congress’ job. They need to do their job. We cannot continue to ignore our Constitution and laws or we will lose our Republic. It is causing nation destroying anarchy, division, destabilization and distrust.
President Obama stopped Congress from legislating a Dreamer law and he unconstitutionally gave us a temporary DACA executive memo.What is that? It is an order to ignore our laws, our Constitution, that is what that is. Obama and the Democrats have shamefully used undocumented immigrant children and their parents as political weapons and political sacrificial pawns, in their partisan and ideological war against Republicans, Conservatives and Constitutional adherents.
It is Congress that makes law. If Congress wants our Immigration system changed, then they need to do the work and pass those laws. It is clear that America is stronger with immigrant children who are educated here. It is clear that America is better off with employed, tax paying, independent law abiding immigrants. If I were Congress, I would give citizenship to the children, to the Dreamers. I would also make sure every adult Dreamer and every American High School Senior takes the citizenship test. Our people need to be educated about what our Constitution,our Declaration of Independence and our History says. We are a diverse nation of many races, many religions, many social beliefs , that is united under the mandates in our Founding Documents. We must not ignore them. Much of the Social unrest in our nation goes on because our people are ignorant about who we are, what our Founding Documents really say and mean, what our laws are. I would also, give work permits to all law abiding, self supporting, undocumented immigrants. If they want citizenship, they need to go to the back of the line. All criminal immigrants, foreign gang members, foreign cartel members, must be deported. They hurt and prey on our people and our immigrants. Our immigration system needs to answer our economic needs and work in a timely efficient and just manner. That means,new immigration and citizenship comes after Americans are fully employed.
Regarding the Tax code Reforms. If Congress would stop worrying about what the special interests want and stop taking election donations from said special interests, passing a new tax code would be a whole lot easier. A 15% tax on all income and profits over $35,000 with NO subsidies, NO deductions would be fair for everyone, individual and businesses alike. Add free repatriation for overseas profits that are used for job creation, building infrastructure, funding research and development. We also should get rid of the inheritance tax. The middle class should be able to pass on wealth to the next generation, just like the rich do. It is stupid that we have an overly complicated incomprehensible tax code that costs so much for compliance. .How many people and business have been litigated and fined because they did not understand the tax code? How many people and business have been litigated and intimidated for partisan and ideological reasons? Clearly the IRS footprint and power needs to be reduced. It is too powerful and has been used as a political weapon against our people.
Regarding DACA: For eight years, we had a President who told our bureaucracies to not enforce some of our laws, including our Immigration Laws. For eight years we had a President who made his own laws by executive orders. Why our Judiciary and Congress allowed this unconstitutional behavior, I do not know. Legislating is Congress’ job. President Obama stopped Congress from legislating a Dreamer law and he unconstitutionally gave us a temporary DACA executive order. Obama and the Democrats haves shamefully used the immigrant children and their parents as political weapons and political sacrificial pawns, in their partisan and ideological war against Republicans, Conservatives and Constitutional adherents.

It is America’s rejection and fear of the corrupt, incompetent, greedy swamp monsters that put Trump in office. We watched the abuses of power thru the politicized bureaucracies, all during the Obama Administration. From the amorality of Fast and Furious to the lies and deadly incompetence of Benghazi to the IRS abuse against Conservatives, to the use of every bureaucracy as a political weapon and propaganda arm, to the DOJ obstruction and corruption, to the forced rationed healthcare law, to the bureaucracy corruption, cronyism, greed, waste, fraud and incompetence, to the Middle East and Northern Africa destabilization caused by the encouragement and funding of revolution and regime change, to the exploitation of created crisis, to the surveillance of American citizens, including the press, Congress. Presidential candidates,Trump World and manipulated leaks to undermine this presidency, we have witnessed and are witnessing America’s biggest threat to our Representative Democracy from the Obama Administration and the leftist activists in our government.
America put Trump in the Oval Office to fix the mess that Obama left us in both here and abroad. America recognized Trump as a patriotic, pragmatic, accomplished, successful problem solver. THAT is why he is in the Oval Office instead of crooked Hillary. How corrupt has the Democrat Party become to try to force that corrupt, incompetent, greedy, deceitful, amoral woman on us as our president? America recognized that Hillary would have closed the gate and locked us out of the individual freedom, individual sovereignty and self governance that our Declaration of Independence promises and our Constitution and Bill of Rights protect. America recognized Hillary would have continued Obama’s agenda to force governance by unelected authoritarian global and Federal Bureaucracies, controlled by leftist elites. The Democrat leadership and their big anti American Marxist donors, like Soros and OFA, are supporting anti American Marxist groups and Anarchists whose only goal is to destroy the American experiment, The radical right have the same goal. Who is funding them? America sent Trump to Washington to stop the radicals from destroying our nation. Trump has chosen pragmatic successful problem solvers, like himself, to assist him in fixing the mess Obama left us in and to return our nation to the Founders vision of small Constitutional governance, equality, sovereignty, individual rights and self governance.
The Swamp of corruption, incompetence, waste and fraud, with the assistance of the liberal press, will lie and smear to stop Trump’s America First Agenda that will provide economic recovery, jobs that allow us all independence and the opportunity to pursue the American Dream, provide education choice and excellence for all and maintain America’s security both here and abroad. Economic failure and social disruption is the only way the left can force their freedom stealing agenda on us.
America needs a history lesson, regarding the Democrat Party. Democrats have used the mob to divide our nation with race baiting rhetoric for two centuries, all for political gains. The Confederacy with Democrat leadership, attacked our nation. They lost. 600,000 Americans died. Democrats incited the mob and one of their acolytes murdered our Republican President, Abraham Lincoln to stop his equality reforms and slave reparations. It was Democrats who wrote voting laws that prevented Blacks from voting in the South. It was Democrats who formed the KKK to terrorize Blacks and stop President Lincolns reforms. It was Democrats who had a KKK Grand Wizard in the Senate in leadership positions for decades. Senator Byrd served in the Senate until 2010 and he has many memorials and many pieces of infrastructure named after him. And, finally, it was Democrats who put up every single one of the Confederate statues, including Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi’s Father, former Baltimore Mayor, Thomas Ludwig John D’Alesandro Jr.. Democrats have never supported the limited Government mandates in our Constitution, the individual rights listed in our Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence.
Democrats are again trying to stop a Republican Agenda by using race baiting. Some Dems have even called for Trump’s assassination. Democrat’s deceitful inciting rhetoric have caused one of their acolytes to try to assassinate several Republican Congressmen, already. It is Democrat demonization and disrespect of our police that have encouraged criminals to assassinate our police. It is Democrats who are supporting and funding violent Marxist groups, such as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matters. Heavens, our former President Barack Obama’s OFA group is funding these organizations. Democrats are using any means, telling any lie, encouraging any intimidation and violent means, to stop President Trump’s American First Reforms which will lead to good paying jobs, better security both here and abroad and much needed bureaucracy reduction, reforms and reorganization. It is Democrats who have used deceitful inciting race baiting rhetoric to divide our nation, all to stop Trump and the Conservative agenda to drain the swamp of corruption, incompetence, greed, waste, fraud and cronyism. While espousing Social Justice and equality, Democrats have always worked against the people, making them dependent and uneducated. You just have to look at the inner cities that they have controlled for decades to know that. Why the supposed enlightened press supports the Democrat vision, I do not know. The press is supposed to be on the side of the people, the guardians of our people. Governance by leftist elite controlled unelected authoritarian Global and Federal Bureaucracies is NOT the what the Founders’ and our people have defended and died for, for over two centuries. We are supposed to be a government by the people and for the people, not a modern day Serfdom where elites control us for power and wealth. How long will We The People allow our bureaucracies to be used as political weapons, and leftist propaganda arms? How long will we allow our government to deny our Constitutional Freedoms? How long will we allow our government to abuse us? How long do Americans allow their Democrat Leadership to manipulate and incite our people thru deceitful rhetoric filled with leftist propaganda, smearing innuendo, half truths and lies?
To all Americans, Refugees and Immigrants that pollute our land with their evil ideology, bigotry and crimes. Stop your social disruption, your tyranny, your lawlessness, your intimidation, your intolerance, your violence or LEAVE. We Americans, don’t want you. You don’t represent us. You have nothing and you stand for nothing that we want. There is no tolerance for your disgusting actions and beliefs in America.
To all Refugees and Immigrants ASSIMILATE or LEAVE. Embrace, accept, adopt our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence and our Rule of law or LEAVE. You came to our nation fleeing violence, crime, oppression and poverty. You did not or could not stay in your home nations and fight for your rights, for your freedom. Some of you had a Constitutional government, but you did not or could not defend it. That is okay, many of our ancestors came here the same way, but they assimilated, they embraced American values, adopted our Founding documents and they obeyed our laws. Americans have defended our Country, protected our inherent rights with each generation. We Americans. even defended other nations to make them free from oppression. Knowing all that, you immigrants, you refugees came here. Help us defend this nation and protect our people. Help make our nation strong. Help make our nation remain that shining city on the hill, that beacon for equal justice and individual freedom.
Just as American citizens before you, left their home countries, left their families, left their political traditions and embraced and defended American principles, you must do so too. You have inherent rights here, but you do not have the right to infringe on others’ rights or disobey our laws. I am asking all immigrants, all refugees to stop hiding those that mean to do America wrong. From the cartels, the gangs, to the communists, the dictators, to the Islamists, they all want to destroy this nation and replace it with their diverse perverted visions. If you see something, hear something, say something. All anti American immigrants must be kicked out of America and those of you who want to be Americans and enjoy a free and prosperous life, you need to help defend our nation. Don’t stand by again and allow evil to grow and oppress you again. Help defend this nation.
To all Americans and Immigrants in the USA: We need to unite as one under our Constitution and stop this insanity of divisive identity politics and multiculturalism that is destabilizing and dividing our nation. We had a Civil War before. Fathers turned against sons. Mothers against daughters. Brothers against brothers. Sisters against sisters. Families against families. Neighbors against neighbors. State against State. We slaughtered each other. We have massive Civil War graveyards. We destroyed our land, we killed and wounded each other and after the war was done, we united as one under our Constitution and Declaration of Independence, again.
Few American ancestors had slaves or supported slavery . It went against the equality mandates listed in our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. We defeated the Confederacy and as such no Confederate flag and no Confederate memorial should be on active government property. Put them in museums, Revolutionary War battlefields, and cemeteries. As for our Founder’s monuments, yes, some owned slaves, but they were men of their time. They held beliefs similar to all other western nations. We would do better to direct our hatred of slavery towards those that are in the obscene slave trade today. We have people, men, women, children sold and bought every day for manual labor and sex.
Don’t erase history. ISIS and dictators do that. We need to know our history so as not to repeat it. Some people in this nation are recklessly dividing us again, exploiting our emotions with deceitful rhetoric, flirting with another Civil War. Many of our politicians and identity groups are disgustingly exploiting the social unrest, inciting the mob to violence and intolerance, dividing our nation with their deceitful rhetoric…all for political and ideological gains,all to overthrow this government and replace it with their vision. We need to reject these politicians and these identity groups. Our Constitutional rights are being silenced and infringed upon through the intimidation of our liberal press and hate groups. Colleges are silencing opposition voices. Businesses and politicians are cowardly backing away from the President’s economic reform groups. Politicians are mouthing the usual anti bigotry rhetoric, hoping that the hate groups and the liberal press will not come after them, like they do our President everyday with their negative spin, smearing innuendo, half truths and lies. We need to say no to the intimidation of the anti American hate groups and people. We need to unite as one under our Constitution. We need to be Americans. We need to embrace Americanism.
Bottom line, we all want the liberties that our Declaration of Independence promises, that our Constitution guarantees and that our laws protect and enforce. This is what we have in common, these are the ties that bind us, that unites us as one.
America, our Founders wanted a nation that gave everyone the opportunity to better their lives. The Constitution that they gave us gives all of us individual rights, individual sovereignty and inalienable God given rights. We are not a collective, we are not socialists, we are not communists, we are Americans with individual liberties. There is no other nation like us. We need to unite behind the nationalism of the American ideology and stop attacking each other, stop dividing into little hate filled, bigoted, racist, ideological, multicultural group. Stop the identity politics insanity or we will destroy our Republic. None of these violent hate groups want America to succeed, they want it destroyed and they want to replace it with whatever ideological vision they have.
Put the Confederate statues and the Confederate flag in Confederate cemeteries, Civil War Battlefields and museums. The Confederacy is a defeated nation and its memorials should not be on Government property. Don’t erase our History. We need to teach our children everything, the things we got wrong, the things we have right and the things we did to right those wrongs. Our children need to know We fought against our brothers, our fathers our neighbors. We slaughtered each other. They need to know the harm we did to each so that we never do it again. As for memorials to honor our Founding Fathers who were slave owners. They were men of their time. We should not compare their moral standards by ours today. Despite their flaws, they wrote two miracle documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, that declare we are all equal, we all have inherent rights, we all have individual sovereignty. These two documents and our flag represent and unite us as one nation under God. We should celebrate that kind of nationalism, not indulge in harmful identity politics and multiculturalism lunacy. Historical wrongs have been fixed, have been corrected, but the inhumanity of slavery has not. We should direct our outrage towards the increasing business of modern day slavery instead of trying to rewrite history, destroy and punish ourselves for the past sins made by others. They are selling people every day for sex and manual labor all around the world. The Asian fishing industry employs slaves, ISIS, pervert criminals and the drug cartels sell women and children for sex slaves. Every year, we arrest people who have slaves in America. This is obscene. This needs to stop. Where is the leadership on this?
To Congress you need to quickly repeal and replace the ACA–send it back to the states so that they can make healthcare fit their individual needs—quickly replace the tax code with a simple flat tax–I like 10%. Our President likes 15%. Take your pick, but get it done. —-quickly pass a balanced budget–balance it in 5 yrs or 10 yrs, put infrastructure money in it, I don’t care, but get it done! This is an national security issue and you guys are dragging your… feet. The house is on fire and you do nothing but give us empty rhetoric. Make good on YOUR promises. Our President is making good on his. Tax code replacement, regulation reduction and good trade deals will encourage the investment and creation of jobs. A good paying job, an excellent educational system and the opportunity to pursue the American Dream for all of us, citizen and immigrant alike, will solve a whole lot of problems, including silencing the Dems identity politics divisive rhetoric. The social unrest is growing because of the Dems and press’ deceitful incitement. Economic recovery and the opportunity to improve everyone’s life will stop this social unrest we are experiencing. Thank you, Mr. President. Thank you to all of your team for your service finding the solutions to our problems. I hope to thank Congress, soon. Do your job. Keep your promises.
After years of watching the radical left destroy property, threaten, extort, bully us, some even murdering police and trying to murder Congressmen, we now are seeing the radical right are prepared to do the same. We know that Soros, Steyer, OFA and other leftist groups are funding the violent leftist agitators, but who is funding the violent right agitating groups? Who is paying these hate groups travel, room and board? We need to publish who is funding these violent hate groups. We may find out they are the same anti American scoundrels. It is clear, the goal from both the fanatical left and fanatical right are the same. They want to destabilize our government and overthrow it, to force their political vision on the land of the free.
We have seen many cowardly CEOs fold under the extortionist intimidation from the fanatical left. All these CEOs will profit from Trumps tax, regulation and trade reforms, but they appease the radicals who want to stop Trumps America First economic reforms and to make the land of the free a modern day serfdom governed by a unelected authoritarian bureaucracy controlled by leftist elites.
The social unrest caused by the press and Democrat leaders constantly spinning what our President says so negatively is very dangerous. It could destabilize our nation. What are you doing? I heard what the President said initially, when he had no facts about who the driver was. I was comforted by it. How many times did Obama weigh in on a violent event without the facts, blaming inherent racism and police brutality where our courts found that there was no racism, no police brutality? Trump was prudent in what he said. Shame on the Press. Shame on the Dems for dividing this nation over and over again for political gain. Why did Charlottesville Mayor and Va Governor allow so many hate groups into their city and why didn’t they separate them? Sessions will find out, but by then the Dems and liberal media will have demonized Trump and incited the mob to continue with their violence. …….David Duke and all the other violent hate groups that made Charlottesville their rioting destination–White Nationalists, Black Nationalists, Nazis, ANTIFA, KKK, Black Lives Matter—-do not represent me, so not represent Donald Trump or any of his team, do not represent most Americans. Racism and bigotry are learned. Why parents cripple their children’s minds and lives with this obscenity I do not know. The identity politics of the left and right are dividing our nation, creating social unrest, violence, chaos and distrust. We need to remember America is the melting pot. We are Americans, we are one community who unite under our Constitution and Declaration of Independence, not little separate bigoted, special interest communities who make their own rules.
