2 By Floor: Dems Equate Replacing ACA With Russian 'Act of War'

Passionate debate on the health care measure is to be expected, but is replacing Obamacare really comparable to a Russian “act of war”?

Clearly it was a ‘Red Dawn’ for Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) on the House floor on Thursday.

“If a foreign power, like the Russians, proposed to do this to America we would consider it an act of aggression and war against the American people,” Raskin ranted.

I know liberals desire to relate everything not generated from their party to Russia right now, but this seems to be a major league stretch.

One fourth of your income is not enough for liberals.

On Wednesday, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) pushed for a resolution on releasing President Donald Trump’s tax returns. While he was making his argument, he let something slip.



Referencing the public disclosure of the president's 2005 tax returns, Pascrell said it shows “that he paid a low rate of 25%.” 

A quarter of your income is a low rate?

Taking 25% of a person’s income is just not enough for liberals.

As Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) once told a gathering of progressives, “The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it.”
