Working Poor Lose Health Care While Rich White Drug Pushing Billionaires Get Tax Breaks

Thom plus logo Every month tens of thousands of people lose their access to healthcare because Republican states are imposing all sorts of restrictions on access to Medicaid. We are literally the only developed country in the world that doesn't provide healthcare as a right, and now we see an entire political party committed to stripping healthcare away from people so they can save enough government money to give more tax breaks to billionaires like the billionaire Sackler family, whose greed addicted and killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.

The Saklers, who got millions in tax cuts from the GOP, then came up with a scheme to make even more money off the opioid addiction epidemic they caused by selling us anti-addiction products.

A black teenager who sells four Oxycontin tablets faces 30 years in prison and working poor people suffering from OxyContin addiction can't get access to healthcare while the rich, white Saklers get a tax break and billions.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
