Puerto Rico's 3. 5 million citizens, U.S. citizens, are facing "near-death conditions" following Hurricane Maria. "Just yesterday, we have been canvassing one by one all of our elderly homes, finding our elderly―and I’m not kidding―we [had] to transfer 11 of them in near-death conditions, no food, no water, no electricity and really the sanitary conditions were deplorable," reports San Juan's mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz.
So what's the U.S. House of Representatives doing about it? Nothing, unless you count scheduling a vote on an unconstitutional abortion ban some kind of help.
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) announced Tuesday that the House would vote on the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act," on Oct. 3. The bill last passed the House in 2015 but was blocked by Senate Democrats.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), would make it a crime to perform or attempt an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, with the possibility of a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.
They're tweeting about this with a hashtag #theyfeelpain . Funny how they use the hashtag #theyfeelpain bill for fetuses but not for people, oh, needing Medicaid. Or medical marijuana. Or for people starving and stranded in Puerto Rico.
It's always time for some red meat for the base when you're a Republican. They can't deliver Obamacare, so they might as well do this. Or, you know, spend some time trying to actually save actual living people.
Puerto Rico dying? Obamacare repeal failing? Time for an anti-abortion vote in the Republican House
Just in case you. We're wondering the current value of 1 Bitcoin. Can you afford to own 100 Bitcoins? That's about a ok amount of bitcoins to be in a low but ok level. #cryptocurrency vs #middleclass#depopulate#nwo
A rewritten Graham/Cassidy bill was announced overnight. It is just as disastrous as the last. Read the latest >> http://bit.ly/
Although most of the talk surrounding the #GrahamCassidyBill and saving the #AffordableCareAct has centered around the most vulnerable citizens, the bill will also affect people from all walks of life. Let's talk about #professionals and the #middleclass .
If you currently receive #healthinsurance through your #employer , particularly if you have a #preexistingcondition , you will have to stay with that employer in order to keep your coverage and hopefully you won't get fired or layed off. Have you checked the list of pre-existing conditions especially ladies? #Fibroids and #pregnancy are included.
Let's talk about our retired or near retirement parents. When a person retires, they receive #Medicare in addition to their previous employer's insurance. Many of our parents have some sort of minor condition where they take medication. The thought of their premiums increasing sickens me. I mention Medicare because it's next to receive cuts.#Medicaid#Disabilities#SaveMyCare#HealthcareForAll#Healthcare#Health#Wellness#HealthyLiving
The Meaning behind the Logo. The O is in yellow Which represents Gold along with the Pyramid of gold bars on the inside paying homage to Egypt for first using gold in trade. The G is in Grey that represents Silver. The U.S Dollar is falling in value so we put the Dollar sign below both Gold and Silver because it's not on the same level. The Organic Money Movement is to warn you about the Biggest Wealth Transfer in History. It's a shift being made from paper currency to hard assets ie #Gold & #Silver . We Post news articles so that you can raise your awareness, learn and take advantage. We feel that this Wealth change is very important and not talked about enough. The Middle Class is disappearing and their is a reason for it. #OG $ "Know what we are talking about"
Before 1913 the federal government did not steal your personal income. So what happened in 1913? The Federal Reserve that's what. The tax rate jumped to 70% then 90% during WW 2. It's been up and down, leveling out to 30% in recent decades. But at the same time the US population has skyrocketed, meaning the government is making even more bank off YOUR back... Your hard earned money. And what do YOU the #MiddleClass and wealthy get for having up to a third of your money hijacked? Taxpayers get NOTHING while those who don't pay a dime get all the government handouts. Great system isn't it? It's fun to take food out of our kids mouths to fund a #welfare system that feeds the lazy fat overpopulating overconsuming parasites. It's great to pay ALL the taxes and get NONE of the benefits... No refund, no health insurance, no cheese, NOTHING. THIS is what #Fascism looks like... #Liberals love it. #Overpopulation#Taxation#IncomeTax#Tyranny#Slavery#Socialism#Communism
Behold the ONLY Pro-Trump book in our public library which is not "missing." By missing we mean STOLEN by thieves, by fascist fanatical #Liberals who hate #FreeSpeech hate #America and ultimately hate themselves. Once upon a time being a #Democrat stood for #Democracy#Liberty and #Equality for all. Now it stands for fascism, ignorance and hate. #Liberalism is a mental disorder manufactured by corrupt politicians and #FakeNews media. It is the inevitable manifestation of the #Orwellian dystopian nightmare of mind control and oppressive ideology. #DonaldTrump is not the racist, the news media is the racist, twisting and distorting everything to fit into their agenda of character assassination. For example, he criticized NFL athletes for refusing to stand for the National Anthem, not because they were black. If white players were kneeling he would criticize them too. He calls it like it is. Fact is, Liberals don't want #America to be Great again, they want to tax the #MiddleClass to death to fund their failed #socialist#totalitarian#dictatorship But Trump threw a giant monkeywrench into their radical plan to turn America into a welfare state, and they won't stop until they find a way to take him out. #MAGA

Dear #PrimeMinister Trudeau, #FinanceMinister Morneau, and Leader of the #Opposition Mr Scheer, and every other Member of #Parliament in #Canada ,
I am writing to you to express serious concern with the Department of #Finance ’s proposed changes to #tax rules. It is my fundamental belief that the proposed tax changes will severely #impact my ability to compete in my industry here locally and everywhere else we do #business .
The core challenge and struggle I have with the draft legislation pertains to the new rules proposed around “passive #investment ” by Canadian Controlled Private Companies. In my experience – investments made by companies like mine are anything but passive. In fact, these are the most dynamic and important investments I have made. My business would not exist without them.
My business has grown because I have been able to actively #reinvest#profits into #growth . Growth is not always predictable. Innovation does not always follow from what might be core to my business. Over the time I have been in business, I have been forced to shift strategies, tactics and execution based on competitive forces. Each time I have had to do so, it was on the back of #capital . Capital that my business has earned and retained for active investment.
The speed of capital deployment within my business has been critical to my growth in revenue and employment over my time in business. Moreover, entrepreneurs like me use capital in our businesses to fund innovation, opportunity, emergency and risk. Again, these are very active and important investments – they are not passive.
Why would the #Government claim that this about #fairness for the #middleclass , when #smallbusiness#owners and #employees are the middle class? How does restricting access to the vast majority of funds to small businesses like mine support increased job growth, when we have been responsible for so much of it?
I implore you to do what is needed to stop any restriction to investment by #CCPCs like IMBA Online Corporation. My ability to #compete in an increasingly #global#economy depends on it.
