If you’re poor and dying of cancer, console yourself with the thought that rich people will pay less taxes under the American Health Care Act. Oh, and the tax cut is retroactive, in case you have any questions about the true nature of what Republicans are up to.
If you believe in the electoral process, there isn’t much of a window left to save it. As stories in the Washington Post and elsewhere demonstrate, Russian influence in the 2016 election was a) ordered by Putin, b) more widespread than previously realized, and c) just a precursor to what we can expect in coming years.
What’s coming is the destruction (and privatization) of natural resources, education, and the nation’s infrastructure, along with an erosion of rights and protections for most of us. But, don’t worry, there’ll be good times on Wall Street.
