I went through the articles in all 4 links
All I saw were articles that reneged on their own "glorified headlines"
You dont seem to have read the entire article linked on all 4
Learn to read the entire article.
Dont cherry pick and/or just read the headlines.

BS! I'm not seeing where those articles "renege" on their headlines.

Do you doubt that GOP has plans to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security?

So predictable. Tax cuts for the wealthy, plunging the US into further deficit, that Paul Ryan & Co. always planned to pay for by gutting the social safety net, Medicare, Medicaid, SNAP, cuts to Social Security and Welfare. Then get Trump to blame Democrats for sounding the alarm and campaigning against it. His base will buy it, to their own detriment.







Keep lying.

The ~$1000 tax cut makes a DIFFERENCE to working families.
It's THEIR money, not yours, not the government's.

Not everyone is like Chelsea and can rely on a "trust fund" of 100s of millions stolen by her parents as part of a charity scam....

Where it should be , yes.
Social Security is one of the worst monetary "black holes" (and has been as it was set up to be a personal line of credit for Congress with no payback required)
But dont you fret and worry yourself sick over the older folks in the US
We are doing just fine
Have been
Will be.
Only liberals fear "cuts". Takes away from their "gravy train"
Knowledgeable folk read with understanding.

The only President to really cut Medicare was Barry
$716 billion worth
Get it ?
Got it ?
Good.

Okay, so we can agree that the GOP wants to cut these programs. All the while, Trump is claiming the Dems want to raid these programs. Do you see the contradiction and lie in Trump's dog whistle claim?

Depends on who , what , when , where , why , and how a determination is made.
See .
And we do not agree.
All Social Security Programs need a thorough going over and revisions made
There was the Barry phone....
The people that fit the requirements for one did not want one. They had the latest iPhone purchased from the Welfare check
The folks that got one , did not qualify. Made too much money
(for the highest percentage of issued Barry phones)

One of the carriers "Q-link wireless" for those Barry phones are fraudulently billing the government for people who don't qualify, or break qualifying factors, new higher paying job, etc, and faking records when many previous subscribers don't even have a phone from the program any longer.

It seems every single democrat derived social entitlement program is corrupt from it's very beginnings, especially Obama created programs.

The proof of Dems raiding taxpayer funded things to foster socialism has already existed and is still happening in big ways.
This blows the OP's intended sarcasm right out into space.

Yeah , help me out here
We need to perform due diligence to ATS for one member who forgets the motto on a consistent basis
Perhaps part of the 716 billion that Barry cut went to Iran ?
For the folks that qualified there for a Barry phone?
Who knows ?

You're defending Trump's wanting cut backs. I get that. But, this is what Trump is claiming:


“They want to raid Medicare to pay for socialism,” Trump said as the crowd expressed agreement via loud boos.


So, while Trump is calling for deep cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, he's claiming the Dems want to go in and steal funds away, raid, these social programs. That's not a true statement. Dems aren't asking for increases or looking for ways to funnel money out, they're trying to hold back cuts.

Trump IS responsible for the economy
thehill.com...

Obama never achieved above 4% growth, never achieved Trump's employment numbers.

In addition, look at the stock charts of X or NUE since Trump was elected, industries that according to Obama "Those jobs aren't coming back".


Obama had 4+% growth during 4 quarters during his presidency.

Why do people keep repeating this lie? It's easily disprovable.

Not only did Obama break 4% growth multiple times throughout his Presidency, he actually almost hit 6% once.

Since when have Democrats given two apples about the deficit? Bill Clinton was the last Democratic President to do something with the economy. Bush 43's economy was terrible thanks to end less war. Under Obama we were told that 2% was the best we could do (GDP growth). Yet Trump comes along, promises 4% and actually delivers 4.1%

Seriously. Where is this history revisionism coming from? It's REALLY easy to see if Obama hit 4% economic growth or not. Why don't you just check instead of baselessly spouting off numbers you have no idea are true or not?

Krazyshot, are you claiming Obama's stagnant economy was anything near Trump's? Our stock markets have been breaking records all year, and our growth is optimistic. Jobs are being brought back into America, putting Americans to work and more corporate money is going into America

Obama's socialist policies were far too expensive for an already far overtaxed and extremely burdened middle class. The middle class can barely afford to live even under the current tax scheme, most can't spare even another penny

Given all the "good ideas" we've seen in the news, Democrats expect the American worker to shell out even more money every 2 weeks in the name of big-government ideologues and feel good programs that benefit everybody but the ones footing the bill.

So far the US economy has continued trends seen under Obama including one of the longest periods of GDP growth in US history.

There is in my view a lot to criticise about Obama economic record, however the idea that Trump has performed an economic miracle isn't supported by the facts.

So far Trump has done a good job on the economy, the bizarre narcissistic need to talk it up into something record breaking however is misplaced.

Since you are accusing 'Leftists' of lying you might want to look at Trumps GDP figures using the metric you selected.

Who would that make the liar?
