Breakingviews - Joe Biden’s tax plan has a flaw: too many losers
Joe Biden says he won’t slap new taxes on people who earn less than $400,000 a year if he becomes U.S. president. But if carried through, his tax plan could create losers among those who fall far short of that symbolic income threshold. That could be a problem when it comes...
The Governor & her family deserve an apology. More gaslighting from the governor and newsweek. 😂 drama queen! SHE WAS ALMOST KIDNAPPED. WE NEED A MATURE RESPONSIBLE LEADER WHO UNDERSTANDS THE POWER OF WORDS. VoteHimOut2020 VoteBidenHarrisToSaveAmerica Serve him a warrant at the debate. I support Gretchen!
The State Supreme Court has ruled against her nazi tactics and she continues to violate the people of Michigan's Constitutional Rights. They should remove her immediately. The Far Left Trump Hating types like the leader of the group that allegedly targeted Whitmer aren't as literal as Newsweek's far left weekend staff.
Trump has created a climate that supports hate and violence where bad things happen. The militias and extremists believe hes giving a go ahead to armed insurrection. Real leaders have to let them know that in a democracy government change comes through a ballot not a bullet. I have never been more ashamed and embarrassed to have Trump as President. He is certifiably insane.
I support 'that woman from Michigan.' Jus don’t be a hypocrite and ask other people to make sacrifices you & your hubby won’t make . GovWhitmer ....and demands that they be locked into their homes...again Gretchen is a badass. LOCK HIM UP!! Where’s the death numbers from the nursing homes you won’t release after you put positive covid patients in with the healthy vulnerable elderly people
This is absolutely disgraceful and abhorrent. He needs to be voted out ASAP. What a monster!! My heart is with GretchenWhitmer 😞 If anything happens to Governor Whitmer it’s as if Donald trump loaded the weapon. It’s stochastic terrorism. lock HIM up, now😡 LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE BYE LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP LOCK HER UP
Being theratened by a bunch of Trump's crazy followers is not a reason to 'lock her up' ! Maxine Waters tells people to gather when they see republican politicians and nothing said from the demacrates, suck it up buttercup,get used to it. The Republican Party needs to be destroyed. They have enabled, supported, and conspired with Trump, a vicious dangerous, sociopath, causing suffering, injury, and death to thousands of Americans. They cannot be trusted in any position of public trust. VoteBiden VoteDemocrats
Trump is tilling the fertile soil of violent extremism here at home by:- 1. looking the other way & ignoring the threats by intelligence 2. refusing to condemn violent hate groups 3. offering extremists passive rhetorical support. Okay Lock Trump up for many crimes Trump being locked up after his loss to Biden,..or leave to 'Putinville'
She enjoyed the suffering the people endured with her extreme lockdown Trump has created a climate that supports hate and violence where bad things happen. The militias and extremists believe hes giving a go ahead to armed insurrection. Real leaders have to let them know that in a democracy government change comes through a ballot not a bullet.
Drama queen. Markle wannabe. The President claims hundreds of thousands of ballots are being mailed out to dead people in an attempt at voter fraud, but I'm pretty sure those were just registered American voters who recently passed away from Covid-19 since Trump's been in office. Voters in Michigan know that Trump is bad for Michigan.
If he loses the election he’s going to be the one lock up OMG. Make him go away 😿 TRUMP 2020(00)... deaths so far. Putin-Trump knows he is getting closer to losing and will meet DAs for his money laundering and tax fraud. Trump's Covid Kill Count is now equal to 3 Vietnam Wars or 214,583 Herman Cains. This woman faced a possible kidnapping and assassination yet Trump doesn’t even have the basic decency to sympathise with her. He is literally only making it more likely that another plot to kidnap and kill her happens.
Or....and I'm just spitballing here....maybe your policies are unpopular and unconstitutional She broke the law
'Stunning': Biden slams Trump for shrugging off Whitmer kidnapping plotBiden, in Michigan, said the president&39;s failure to condemn the people arrested for plotting to kidnapping the governor "is stunning" Anything to distract the American people from the Biden family’s corruption. We see through the bullshit. Biden Lawyer asked for harder drive back from Hunter Biden Laptop one day after Hunter Biden story broke THUS VERIFYING THE SOURCE!!! OCTOBER SURPRISE, HEY COMMIES, BIDEN IS TOAST!!!! There was no kidnap plot. Its all a hoax, fake news fake news deep state is behind it and by deep state I mean the Clintons
Michigan Sets New Covid Case Record Just Hours Ahead Of Trump RallyHospitalizations are at their highest since the spring. LOL. The GOP is right....The media is coming for them. But it isn't personal...it's a populist response to poor policy. Democrats, frankly, oftentimes also produce poor policy. Horrible job MrPresident MichiganForBiden COVID19
Michigan Voter: If Republicans won't criticize Trump, 'I am not going to vote for them'Dasha Burns talks to voters in Kent County, Michigan where some are “voting blue all the way up and down the ballot for the first time in their lives.” DashaBurns What about the fake news media not criticizing Joe Hiden, is that ok DashaBurns The Republicans bow to trump irregardless of the lies and disregard for the law and the people to maintain their personal lives. They sold America out when he was impeached, he should have been out of office and now we live with their decisions. So I agree vote Democrat. DashaBurns Actions speak louder than words. Republicans speaking out now is too late. Look how they voted the last 4 years. You can’t trust a thing they say now.
Trump tries to shore up Florida, Biden targets Michigan as early voting surgesU.S. President Donald Trump sought to boost his standing in the battleground state of Florida on Friday by reaching out to seniors, while rival Joe Biden blasted Trump's response to the coronavirus pandemic on a tour of the swing state of Michigan. Trump is like that middle school kid you remember back in school who never shuts up about himself telling lies and self praising with goofy dudes around him only because they have nothing else going on...but it’s middle school so you can just walk away.. Now he needs to go..badly Two masks for Biden now. Science?
In abrupt reversal, Trump will now grant federal wildfire aid to California, governor saysThis is another example of finger-pointing between California and the administration over wildfires. Gov. Gavin Newsom says the increasing intensity and frequency of the fires are evidence of global warming, but President Trump blames forest management. The forests that the Federal government owns 58% of? Trump makes it sound like the Boy Scouts can solve the problem with a few rakes and some marshmallows.
