When He Wins You Lose, Trump Federal Budget Edition
Nothing gets more going than the media lie during 2016 that Hillary didn’t have passionate support. Here we are five months later, and how many of my fellow Democratic friends on Twitter still have Hillary hashtags? #I’mStillWithHer.
Here is a ‘I voted for Hillary.’
Based on actions, trump's only priority is HIMSELF. https://t.co/t9hNkWmGBb

I have a new follower-I followed her first-whose hashtag is HRCRemembered.
Lovely, bittersweet memory from one of Hillary's campaign staff.
"We are all still heartbroken."
And they all fight on. https://t.co/n02utYUHwf

I started following a woman last night with the best hashtag: @HillaryWarnedUs.

Just how much Hillary fascination there is out there is shown by this website:
We still love Hillary and always will. Your lies and slanders about her will never fool us.
The Trump supporters can’t stop talking about her either.
Trump takes a shot at Hillary during Nashville rally. Crowd chants "lock her up." Trump says nothing.
The election was over 4 months ago.

Exactly. Because it was always just about beating Hillary. Now that the dog caught the car-with lots of help from Russia and James Comey-they still have nothing to do but hate on her.
One thing that she definitely warned us about is ‘When he wins you lose.’
Kurt Eichenwald was one of the few to get the true significance of Trump’s 2005 returns-who you really do wonder if he didn’t send them himself. After all, they were marked Client Copy.
If Trump told the truth about his net worth in 2005, he earned 1.5% on his assets after tax. Savings accounts were paying 4.92%. He lied.

In other words, unless Trump lied to the IRS, this shows he didn’t have the net worth he claimed. As Hillary pointed out last night, in 2005 Trump sued the author Tim O’Brien-who he had actually cooperated in writing his book after O’Brien argued his net worth was only about $250 million dollars.
Of course, if you want to sue someone for falsely saying you’re not a billionaire-you have to go to court and prove you are a billionaire.
In the court case, he was continually called out for exaggerating his net worth.
Don’t get me wrong, though: even if he wasn’t a billionaire before his illegitimate Presidency, he may well be one now. He and his family are getting very rich at our expense. Margo, Lago, Don Jr’s business deals, a number of Trump’s projects in China are suddenly getting a green light.
And while he wins he wants to cut the budget by over $1 trillion dollars. But I thought the Berners told me he and not Hillary is the real Keynesian?
“President Trump on Thursday will unveil a budget plan that calls for a sharp increase in military spending and stark cuts across much of the rest of the government including the elimination of dozens of long-standing federal programs that assist the poor, fund scientific research and aid America’s allies abroad.”
“Trump’s first budget proposal, which he named “America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again,” would increase defense spending by $54 billion and then offset that by stripping money from more than 18 other agencies. Some would be hit particularly hard, with reductions of more than 20 percent at the Agriculture, Labor and State departments and of more than 30 percent at the Environmental Protection Agency.”
“It would also propose eliminating future federal support for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Within EPA alone, 50 programs and 3,200 positions would be eliminated.”
“The cuts could represent the widest swath of reductions in federal programs since the drawdown after World War II, probably leading to a sizable cutback in the federal non-military workforce, something White House officials said was one of their goals.”
“You can’t drain the swamp and leave all the people in it,” White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters.
So now we know what Drain the Swamp means: drain from out pocketbooks and use it to promote the private wealth and interest of him and his family.
Nothing he said on the campaign trail added up. He had argued we’d spent too much in foreign wars and entanglements and this money would have been better spent at home.
Yet he’s cutting domestic spending and putting it all into military spending as well as building his unnecessary wall.
He says we should demand that our Nato partners ‘pay up’ as if this is a protection racket. But the premise is that this would allow us to spend less abroad. Yet, he’s jacking up military spending; he himself calls it one of the biggest military buildups in history.
It turns out there are things he says you can take literally-Muslim ban and mass immigration raids-and things you can’t: healthcare for everybody, spending more here at home.
P.S. As we saw this morning, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
