Bill Clinton Is Right On Obamacare

Obamacare works well for a lot of people but will never totally fix the problem. And why is that? Easy -- it’s because Obamacare, for all the good things it does, like do away with discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions and providing free healthcare for low-income people, still keeps in place the for-profit health insurance system for most of us. So in a way, Bill Clinton is right about Obamacare being crazy, just not in the way Republicans are saying.

Politics Panel: The Filipino Trump Says, “Go To Hell"

Hughey Newsome, BOLD.global/Move-On-Up & Sarah Badawi, Progressive Change Campaign Committee & Bryan Pruitt, RedState joins Thom. "You can go to hell" That's what Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte said today after President Obama expressed concern about his country's increasingly violent drug war. Since Duterte - who calls himself the Phillipino Donald Trump - took office in July - 3,600 people have been murdered in a wave of vigilante killings that the Phillppine president has apparently fully endorsed. Duterte has even gone so far as to positively compare the violence to the Holocaust - saying, "Hitler massacred 3 million Jews … there’s 3 million drug addicts I’d be happy to slaughter them.”

Progressive Roundtable - Is Trump Helping Down Ticket Dems?

Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View & Linda Benesch, Communications Director-Social Security Works both join Thom. Clinton's surge comes after Trump suffer a week-long meltdown after Hillary Clinton brought up Trump's sexist treatment of a former Miss Universe winner. Instead of running on the issues and focusing on how Hillary Clinton would move the country forward - the Democrats have spent most of their time and money attacking Trump's personality as being so defective that he couldn't possibly win the presidency. Are we seeing that strategy finally payoff at the presidential level? And will downticket Democrats be able to attach Trump to downticket Republicans to help take back the House and Senate?

Progressive Roundtable - Trump the Artful (Tax) Dodger

Joe Madison, The Joe Madison Show/SiriusXM Urban View & Linda Benesch, Communications Director-Social Security Works both join Thom. If an average person were unemployed and filed a year or two of "losses" on their tax return - they couldn't use those losses to get out of future taxes owed - but billionaire real estate developers like Donald Trump can - and that's essentially what he did. Beyond that - even though Trump's campaign is acting outraged at the tax loopholes helping special interests - Trump's tax plan doesn't do ANYTHING to close those loopholes and it's likely that he - or his children - would still manage to pay nothing in taxes if he became president. Trump lost nearly $1 billion in a single year - so why have we been paying for it for almost two decades?

Get Ready For A Climate Denier Heading up the EPA?!

You need to know this....

So far, Donald Trump's choice of cabinet members has been - well - deplorable.

He's picked someone who wants to privatize Medicare to oversee Medicare as his secretary of Health and Human Services.

He's picked a bankster who foreclosed on a 90-year-old over a 27 cent underpayment to oversee banksters as his Treasury Secretary.
