I am cautiously optomistic.

Im thinking that these desperate repulsicans will do anything to stop Obama being a successful president. But hopefully they will not succeed. We need to make sure that Pres Obama knows what the People want and that the People keep up making sure he does the right thing. Hopefully he will go after all these fossil fuel giants and please stop exporting LNG to Asian countires. Here in Oregon, there is a proposed export terminal by a foreign country that wants to run a 234 pipe line through forests, private properties, etc. to ship LNG into an area that is a tsunami innundation zone. Lets hope Pres Obama doesnt let this happen.

I think not. I think that with determined, with strong leadership, the President has staked out his vision and the Republicans as political wing of the uber class never let us forget theirs, I expect some achievement these first two years of his second term but most will occur in 24 months when Americans send a majority of Dems to the House and a super majority to the Senate. Then will he cement his legacy and set the stage for the unprecedented election of the next Democratic President of the United States. I can wait.

The Kochs vs Trump - Who Will Win On Healthcare?

The fight to repeal and replace Obamacare is rapidly becoming a battle between factions of oligarchs.

So who will win - the Koch brothers faction that hates the Republican healthcare plan?

Or the Trump-Mercer faction that supports it?

As it stands right now, the Republican plan to replace Obamacare still doesn't have enough support to make it through a House vote.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
