Today, President Trump is in Speaker Ryan’s Wisconsin district attending a closed-door fundraiser and touting the GOP tax scam for the rich at the groundbreaking of a new facility owned by Foxconn, a multinational company headquartered in Taiwan… just days after Harley Davidson, an American company headquartered a mere thirty miles away in Milwaukee, announced they would be shifting motorcycle manufacturing overseas.
Today, a new Kaiser Family Foundation poll reveals an overwhelming majority of American voters believe health care is a top issue and protecting provisions preventing discrimination against the 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions is one of their highest priorities.
Maybe President Trump should have paid more attention to his GOP tax scam for the rich – a tax scam which actually rewards corporations for shipping American jobs overseas, just like Harley Davidson.
Tonight, President Trump heads to Columbia, South Carolina to give what he calls a ‘campaign speech.’
But… we know what he’ll actually do: tout misguided ‘accomplishments’ like the GOP tax scam for the rich and sabotage of Americans’ health care, while ignoring devastating impact of Republicans’ agenda for hard-working families in South Carolina.
“Minds are going to change and people are going to change their view on [the GOP Tax Scam for the rich].” – Speaker Ryan, December 2017
House GOP Narrowly Passes Partisan Farm Bill More than 375 Groups – Representing Millions of Americans – Oppose

Six months ago, House Republicans passed their tax scam for the rich – ransacking our children’s future to hand massive handouts to big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent.
Today, President Trump is traveling to Duluth, Minnesota to host a roundtable with workers where he will undoubtedly herald the six month anniversary of the GOP tax scam for the rich. Later in the evening, the President will do what he clearly loves best – headline a campaign rally where he will likely launch into a wild attack on core American values, denigrating immigrants, people of color, journalists, Democrats and the few Republicans brave enough to stand up to the leader of their party.
The Trump Administration continues their barbaric ‘zero-tolerance’ policy separating families at the border – literally ripping children out of the arms of their mothers and fathers – as they prosecute asylum seeking families at the border for illegal entry.
In an attempt to defend their inhumanity, President Trump blamed others for his own policy, Attorney General Sessions quoted the Bible, and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen tried to claim it wasn’t happening at all…
The Trump Administration’s latest cruel effort to strike down key consumer protections in the Affordable Care Act preventing insurance companies from denying coverage or charging more for covering people with pre-existing conditions has far reaching consequences.
