Of course they should have don't it faster, because not letting states run out of money wasn't good enough if this is all about politics to someone.

There was support on both sides for this kids insurance plan, it will be passing. But of course many are blowing it up as if the Republicans are not going to let it go through. I hate this political frenzy nowadays with lies from the left flying every which way but towards the truth just to make the Republicans and Trump look bad.

There's nothing in the tax bill that cuts any social program funding is there?


that has literally nothing to do with what i posted.

also, the routine is always to pass large tax cuts and run up the deficit and then turn around and cut the social programs after, to make up for it. they're already talking about it.

your little duck and shuffle routines are brainless, to be quite honest. but you have a great future in right-wing media...


Admit it, you've never seen a president as smooth and smart as Trump, every promise the left has told us about him has turned up empty. Stay the course though, fiverx, y'all are driving us right into another huge sweep for 2018.

Til March. Do rich people and powerful people ever think that the low class needs stability too? The low class have futures too.

What's more of an issue to you... 1.5 trillion over ten years, or 10 trillion over 8?

It's pretty ugly, but they're only hurting themselves in this corrupted lust for power. If this was as bad as they claim it is then they wouldn't be so mad about it, they'd let it take its course and drive America into the ground. Republican success to them is like holy water to a vampire. They cringe and hiss at the sight of it.

Instead of getting worked up about it, why don't you wait and see what happens when Congress comes back from their break next year.

Well, the majority of our congressmen, both Republican and Democrats, believe in this program. This never should have been an issue. There is a lot of support from the Republicans on this......votes count...lots of people know someone who get benefits or get direct benefits from this program. My grandchildren are even covered by this. It helps with the deductible of my son in law's work insurance.

This has nothing to do with the rich or powerful, our votes are important to both parties. The rich do not object to this program, many of them actually benefit from it.

It is easy to find information on the net about bi-partisan support for this program. That is if a person actually looks for it instead of looking at all the propaganda from the left.

i believe those stories are actually about how the GOP prioritized ramming through a bunch of tax cuts for rich people, and let CHIP lapse to the point that many states were about to run out of funding, forcing them to deny services. you might want to read past the headlines?


Are you and Willtell the same person, or are you both so triggered you can't think straight? The only thing causing all of this is the stonewalling by the Democrats... The problem is the Democrats hold significant leverage because Republicans do not have enough votes to pass a spending measure without some Democratic support....

End of story...

The poor little CHIP kids will still get it...lol So this is not about the big old bad Republicans...

Other than the tax bill is now poised to bring in a lot LESS income to pay for these programs?

No, the cuts are in the budget (not tax bill.)

Starred because at least one person in this thread has at least a basic understanding of our economics and the delineation between the two of those important distinctions.

and they don't have the democratic support because they are not working to create a bipartisan bill. compromise isn't one-sided.

True, but the Republicans could vote on the cure for cancer and the Democrats would still be 100% vote against. It is not about compromising...it is all about making the majority look as bad as you can while doing nothing at all but to vote nay on everything.

This is all about winning seats in 2018 and taking the White House in 2020, CHIP be damned if it gets in the way....

Lot's of ifs there. You can be right IF this tax cut does nothing to jump start the economy to higher levels. We can't just decade after decade keep hiking taxes and spending...at some point we need to baseline both, and this is what I see.
