It just keeps getting uglier and uglier with the US republican party.
Not only do they have a traitor for a president…
They now have a Holocaust denying nazi running as a republican for Congress in Illinois
A former leader in the American Nazi Party is about to be the only Republican on the ticket for a congressional race in Illinois. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Arthur Jones, a Holocaust denier who has repeatedly tried ― and failed ― to attain office, is the only candidate seeking the GOP nod for the seat in the heavily Democratic 3rd Congressional District.Paul Ryan who made damn sure that US billionaires got the sweetest tax deal in US history, with the 1%ers getting over an average of $51,000 in cuts a year, got a massive "donation" of $500,000 from the Kochs for saving them billions. http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/politics/a15844720/paul-ryan-tax-bill-koch-donation/
House Speaker Paul Ryan collected nearly $500,000 in campaign contributions from Charles Koch and his wife after helping usher through a massive tax reform law. According to a recent campaign finance report filed Thursday, Koch and his wife Elizabeth each donated $247,7000 to Ryan’s joint fundraising committee… The Republican tax overhaul plan passed in December benefited Koch Industries, as it cut the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, among other cuts. The legislation then got a boost from the Kochs' multimillion-dollar public relations campaign to highlight its benefits. And 13 days after it passed, Charles and Elizabeth Koch made the near $500,000 donation to Team Ryan, which raises money for the congressman, the National Republican Congressional Committee and a political action committee run by Ryan. On the same day, Charles and Elizabeth Koch also each donated $237,000 to the NRCC.Then tweets about a woman who gets an extra $1.50 a week... the middle class gets $60 a year as trickle down. Before deleting it when people rightly called him out for how out of touch he is with the reality of most Americans who can't afford to buy him off like the Kochs. https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/03/politics/paul-ryan-tweet-tax-cut-backlash/index.html
House Speaker Paul Ryan deleted a tweet Saturday touting the GOP tax overhaul after critics called him out for appearing out of touch with the reality of low-income individuals' financial situations. The tweet shared the story of a secretary who, according to a report by the Associated Press, was "pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week." "A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week ... she said [that] will more than cover her Costco membership for the year," Ryan tweeted with a link to the full article.They are totally out of touch of reality and in some cases as with the nazi downright evil. I think taking massive payoffs to work exclusively for billionaires by a Congressperson is its own kind of evil, when you consider that millions of Americans will be losing health care and Social Security to pay for this massive windfall for the already incredibly wealthy. Like I said, who the hell would vote for these creeps... besides the assholes who keep buying them off.
