That long-predicted day is upon us.

Not to worry, though - "Social Security’s costs are expected to exceed its income in 2020 for the first time since 1982, forcing the program to dip into its nearly $3 trillion trust fund to cover benefits."
THREE TRILLION!!!! Golly!
I'd love to see the run down on those assets.
Gold bullion?
Cash?
Shares in profitable companies?
Certainly real estate - Uncle Sam has nearly all of Nevada.
Oh, wait - it turns out the 'fund' is the tax payers' wallets.
Just wait until we 'tax the rich' to pay for everything. It'll be swell.

Scenes’ Gal is shining bright lately. She has found her groove.

“In a video clip flagged by The Washington Free Beacon's Brent Scher, Ocasio-Cortez praised the VA healthcare system, saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

"The idea that this thing that isn't broken, this thing that provides the highest quality care to our veterans somehow needs to be fixed, optimized, tinkered with until you don't even recognize it anymore," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Here's the thing, they are trying to fix it, but who are they trying to fix it for is the question we've got to ask. They're trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical companies, they're trying to fix the VA for insurance corporations, and ultimately they're trying to fix the VA for a for-profit healthcare industry that does not put people or veterans first."

"We have a responsibility to protect it, because if it is any community that deserves Cadillac first-class healthcare in the United States of America it is our military service members," Ocasio-Cortez added.“

Saying the Leftinistas would trash William Barr was a no brainer. Here is the next predictions: trashing IG Horowitz. Time will tell.

Toes 1046pm... the politics of personal destruction is a well worn bit of applied Machiavelli... In The Prince, Machiavelli wrote a thought that is generally misunderstood... he didn't write, "The ends justifies the means"... he did write something like "when judging men, especially Princes, and there are no disinterested observers, one must take the results into account"...which means that when you have an honest person doing their jobs, like Ken Starr, Barr or Horowitz, you've got to trash them so the useful idiots can work their magic.

I expect the next 12 months to be very interesting. Yes, Trump is still standing and he's pissed.

Breaking NEWs! In the 'fuck the rule of law department, us goombahs do what we want to protect our asses' trump will not turn over his tax returns AS REQUIRED BY LAW to Congress. for those with eyes that see and minds that think.. this is scary shit when people try and circumvent law.. Does the term 'wanna be despot' ring a bell? Hitler was a wanna be despot who pulled it off because people bought into his lies and his appeal to base instincts like fear, nationalism, and racism to rally his supporters. Does history repeat itself.. can history repeat itself?

Don Bessee

IRS code says no so what law oh cross one with purple face do you refer?

Bobby 511pm, no, Trump is not REQUIRED BY LAW to turn over his tax returns to Congress. Try again.

Here's a quote of the relevant section of

26 U.S. Code § 6103. Confidentiality and disclosure of returns and return information
(f) Disclosure to Committees of Congress
(1) Committee on Ways and Means, Committee on Finance, and Joint Committee on Taxation

Upon written request from the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, the chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request, except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.

I doubt Trump would consent in writing (or verbally) to "such disclosure".
Do the Democrats really want to weaponize the IRS more than they already have?
