Affordable health care has nothing to do with being “self sufficient”. Under the US system, you could have saved or earned enough money to take out a top of the line policy but STILL be denied because of a pre existing condition that you were born with. Most illnesses or disabilities are not obtained through any fault of the sufferer.

Thank so much for educating me on how to get my news! Ummm…yeah, I actually DO get my news from a variety of sources INCLUDING New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc – that is HOW I know those sources ARE NOT the reliable news they once were! I would watch Trump’s speeches IN THEIR ENTIRETY, then tune into ALL the news channels to see what they were saying. Don’t be so quick to denounce certain sources as “unreliable” – I don’t agree 100% with any source (or any politician), but I do know sources I once thought were “reliable” are anything but!

Surprise, surprise, Trump is headed to Mar-a-Lago for the fourth consecutive weekend! So the taxpayers will be on the hook for another $3 million.  Let’s just cut the EPA budget a little more, or do away with some of those pesky USDA inspectors, save a few bucks, right?

Horseradish :  Don’t forget that a portion of that expense is for the government employees that travel with him (secret service, etc.) and that money goes into his own pockets. Disgusting!

I think he will eventually live in Florida and visit the WH. And the taxpayers will pay and he will profit.

Horseradish :  Which also houses secret service – more profit.

The “fiscal” conservatives don’t seem too bothered by any of it either.

Anyone who still supports this guy is …not a good person (that’s nicer than I want to frame it).

The Trump administration is now floating a proposal to separate women from their children putting them in separate detention facilities if they cross the border illegally as a “deterrent.” Because that’s humane. Are we going to be gassing them next?

Seriously. The fact that this was even considered is disgusting.

Katie-Didnt :  this sounds like an awful idea, that could go bad in so many ways. First of all the US has a pretty horribly run DCF. And i doubt the DHHS is a whole lot better at taking care of kids.

Yes, I simply gave examples of some of the places…I read and watch everything at some point of another…BBC is better, but not impartial either.

I have taken those quizzes as well…there was one circulating back in the 2012 election..I always land in conservative land.

Btw – to all the people complaining about the money “wasted” by Trump’s travels and maintaining two properties, I am surprised you haven’t had a problem with us ALSO paying for Obama to maintain two properties – DC AND Chicago (and when was the last time he was even IN Chicago??) as well as Clinton’s home in NY and DC. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

PS. You are also delusional if you don’t think that we paid for Michelle, her entire staff, her daughters and her mother to travel EXTENSIVELY throughout the world on a VERY regular basis. FAR more expensive than Trump going to his other HOME in Florida.

…and every time Obama or Biden went to NY to appear on one of those late night shows, host a fundraiser or have lunch with a group, ect – it cost the city hundreds of thousands of dollars – even if the trip was ony 20 minutes long.

The media doesn’t report ANY of these things.

ct2015 :  That travel was reported actually and the same fiscal conservatives who freaked out over Obama and his family’s vacations to Hawaii now have no problem with Trump going to Florida every weekend at the expense of the taxpayers.  It’s not that Obama didn’t cost the taxpayers money in travel, it’s that the fiscal conservatives only seem to be outraged when it’s a Democrat doing it.  And that is hypocrisy at its finest.

Hawaii was the least of it and it is a hell of a lot more expensive to travel to properties other people own, than your own home. Also, as a “fiscal conservative”, that was the least of my problems with Obama – when you are President, there are simply costs that come with the job – his security is one of them.

We can compare the expenses/ financial situation of the country of both administrations after 4 years. Bitching one month in is pretty ridiculous.
