Yes. Trump's not alone. Federal income taxes paid by corporations a year after his tax plan was signed into law: $0: Amazon $0: GM $0: Netflix $0: Chevron $0: FedEx $0: Eli Lilly $0: Starbucks Dr. King was right. We have socialism for the rich, rugged capitalism for the rest.

Trump's not alone. Over a three-year period, the top 1% avoided $800 billion in taxes. That's enough to: 🎓Make public colleges tuition-free 👩‍👦‍👦Eliminate child hunger 🚰Provide clean drinking water to all 🏡End homelessness Yes. The 1% have got to pay their fair share of taxes.

So, when California has rolling blackouts, now you’ll have no lights, no a/c, and...your govt-mandated electric car won’t recharge. 💡💡

If it was anyone other than Joe Biden’s son, there would be a criminal investigation. Where’s Chris Wray?

President @realDonaldTrump  signs an executive order on the America First Healthcare Plan! US

The stakes are enormous: Healthcare. Climate change. Roe v. Wade.   Voting rights. Dreamers. Campaign finance. Civil rights. Pre-existing conditions. Our rights are at stake. Our health is at stake. Our democracy is at stake. No confirmation before inauguration.

I am repeating this because it is so insane. Wisconsin Republicans are trying to shut down a voter registration/ballot witnessing event in Madison tomorrow.

The report also reveals the Trump Organization wrote off around $26 million in unexplained “consulting fees” between 2010 and 2018. Some of those tax deductions match consulting fees paid to Ivanka Trump in her financial disclosures.
