    Tax cuts for the wealthy reduce revenue and show no indication that they "stimulate" anything but larger deficits. Ignoring history must be a full time job for you.
    Nearly 70% of the Trump income tax cuts are going to the top 1%. Do you think those billionaires are now going to spend even more than they already do? Corporate profits are at record highs and cash on hand is at record levels too because of low demand for goods. Explain how those that pay no income tax already are going to spend more because of those cuts. The didn't under Bush and they won't under Trump. I expect a recession soon because that is what Republicans do.

    The FBI is pretty much the only agency that would be able to legally conduct that kind of surveillance. Other agencies are capable of it, but we're talking about some pretty serious felonies if they did this.



    Again... The FBI was doing routine surveillance on Kislyak. KISLYAK. NOT FLYNN.



    Trump hauled off at 6AM on a Saturday morning and accused Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower. No one has any evidence that any such thing happened. Not the FBI, not the DoJ, not the House intelligence committee, not the Senate intelligence committee, not the White House -- which is so desperate to sell its story that it relied on a conspiracy theory promulgated by a Fox News commentator, with pretty much zero proof, and insulted a major ally in the process.

    No amount of spin can make these facts go away.



    I feel quite confident that we can cease investigating the spurious and baseless claim that "Obama ordered surveillance on Trump Tower." If not now, then very soon.

    I have no idea how the rest of the investigations are doing.
    I'd simply note that if Trump Tower was the headquarters of the Trump election campaign and if the DOJ was, as Comey admits, investigating whether or not there was any illegal involvement between the Russians and the Trump campaign, would it not seem logical to you - as it does to me - that surveillance of such "involvement" would have to include surveillance of the Trump campaign, headquartered in Trump Tower.

    Now, you can take the lawyerly position and the legalese response and legitimately claim that Trump Tower wasn't the focus of the surveillance - that the Russian elements were - but you can't surveil one party without surveilling the other party. I'm not excusing Trump's take on the matter, simply saying that Trump may not be entirely wrong in his assertions as they relate to wiretapping if not as they relate to President Obama, personally.

    But I'll tell you what, it defies credibility that the Justice Department would be conducting an investigation of Donald Trump, pre election, without President Obama knowing and implicitly or explicitly condoning it.

    And I'd also add that President Obama, a man who has an opinion to offer on virtually every subject known to man, and usually before investigations have been completed, has been eerily silent and nowhere to be found on this issue.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    You lost, snowflakes. Get over it and grow up.
    1) Do you even understand the Clinton Foundation and how it works? You realize the Clinton's gained nothing to speak of, personally, from the foundation. Frankly, the Trump Foundation is corrupt... the Clinton's are generally guilty of twisting people's arms to give to the Foundation, but the Foundation actually did meaningful work throughout the world.

    2) Russia interfered in the US election. There is plenty of evidence of that. Their interference is actually an act of war. Whether their "work" swayed 85,000 (or flipped 42,500) votes in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, which is quite probable, is something we should better understand. The legitimacy of the Trump win lies in the balance. If you are running around concerned about voter ID but are not concerned about this, you are either ignorant or a hypocrite, as this was a real blow to American election integrity.

    3) I understand that, as of now, there is no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. However, there is a enough circumstantial evidence (lots of meetings and no renouncements by anyone in the campaign of Russia or its activities) AND the integrity of the American elections are at question, such that we should all support continued investigations.

    Most of the world relies on govt. spending for the predominant GDP contribution, not this country. You haven't figured it out yet so why don't you move? Russians involvement in our elections make great press but so what? did they change any votes? What do you hope to gain by this investigation?

    Yeah, I'd say this is the worst 100 days of all time. And Lincoln had to deal with secession!
    So people choosing not to participate is stripping them of their insurance? Liberal rhetoric. 21000 stock market, 9.2% U-6 which is a reduction from Obama, is definitely the worst 100 days on record in the liberal world. Is that liberal logic and economic results.

    Yes, but he bored the hell out of those AND threaten the health of those that had to sit through his 3+ hour inauguration speech in the cold rain.
