Trump Wants To Impose A Fee On Small Grocery Stores That Serve Food Stamp Recipients (VIDEO)

Republicans love to tout “smaller government” and “protecting small business owners.” Well, if the facade hasn’t fallen away yet, perhaps the next installment of targeted genocide against the poor emanating from the Trump administration will deliver the message.

House GOP Bill GUTS Consumer Financial Protections (VIDEO)

It should come as no surprise that when Republicans tell us they are protecting “freedoms,” they don’t mean ours.” When they claim to be holding Wall Street “accountable,” they’re concerned only with the “account” part.
