The next step, according to Ryan, is cutting spending. And while Congress hasn’t gotten that far yet, the agenda is clear. If a version of the tax plan passes, the next major item of business in Congress will likely include major cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

The entire tax plan is built around one premise: that cutting taxes causes the economy to grow and creates jobs. The problem is, this doesn’t appear to be true.
This time, “welfare reform” won’t just target low-income mothers; it will mean drastic cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
A study from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business found that additional economic growth due to the tax plan would be miniscule — less than a tenth of a percent per year in the near term. That’s not the kind of growth the economy needs to produce more, or better-paying jobs.
Meanwhile, a study from the Institute for Policy Studies found that corporations that paid lower tax rates actually cut jobs — while passing the gains on in the form of higher CEO pay.
Buying legal marijuana in California could be pricey enough to keep the black market healthy.
Are you living paycheck to paycheck? Is so, you are just like most other hard working Americans. As you will see below, 78 percent of full-time workers in the United States say that they are living paycheck to paycheck. That is the highest figure ever recorded, and it is yet more evidence that the middle class is under an increasing amount of stress. The cost of living is rising at a much faster pace than our paychecks are, and more families are falling out of the middle class with each passing month. Unfortunately, this is something that the mainstream media really doesn’t want to talk about these days. Instead, they just keep having us focus on the soaring financial markets which are being grossly artificially inflated by global central banks.

Orville Almon, the lawyer representing the Route 91 music festival and Jason Aldean, the singer onstage when the Las Vegas shooting began, has been found dead. He was 66.
Almon, a prominent Nashville attorney, opened his private practice Almon Law in 2010 where he represented musicians and entertainment industry organizations during battles with the law.
While his practice included re-negotiating existing agreements and new technology issues, and was renowned for negotiating with law enforcement, recent social media posts suggested the experienced attorney was feeling the strain of his latest high-profile case.

Thousands and thousands have lost everything in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. One month later I visited the devastation seeing entire suburbs destroyed over 39 counties and no one is there to help. No one.
50 inches of cold rain came in just 3 hours in the middle of the night. Now thousands and thousands have no home, only the clothes on their back and each other. Hurricane Harvey was downgraded to “tropical” the day before the storm hit, so very few evacuated.
Water stayed for four days, chest deep due to release of the dams above in many counties and now mold has taken over their homes, most have no insurance, and those that do, have not seen an house inspector so they can begin repairs…those that have any money, that is.
FEMA is nowhere to be found, Red Cross has taken in well over $300 million, yet I could not find one person that has received the $400 promised to them or have seen a Red Cross official anywhere. In Wall Street terms, it’s called “Disaster Capitalism”
