taxpayer

I’m still feeling zero sympathy for the growing number of ManChildTrump voters who are realizing they were fooled.

Those who wanted ObamaCare killed while they had coverage under the Affordable Care Act. No sympathy.

Caitlyn Jenner, who knew the people with whom Trump aligns himself want to dissolve same-sex marriage and eliminate protections for transgender people. No sympathy.

Immigrants who came here, then voted to keep refugees out…even those from the same country they escaped…then cry because their family members can’t enter the US. No sympathy.

People who claim to care about their children’s education…or the air they breathe…or the water they drink, only to see the unqualified people Trump appointed to his cabinet. No sympathy.

And, Middle Class taxpayers? Here’s a prediction. When Trump releases his tax plan, you’ll discover you’re paying higher taxes so the rich/corporations can stack up a few more pennies on their counting tables. No sympathy!

In a month, the Trump family has cost taxpayers almost as much as the Obamas did in a year
Donald Trump’s family’s trips have cost taxpayers nearly as much in a month as Barack Obama’s cost in an entire year. The US President’s three visits to his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida since his presidential inauguration, combined with his sons’ business trips, reportedly cost $11.3m (£9.1m).

“This is an expensive way to conduct business, and the President should recognise that,” said conservative watchdog Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, speaking to the Washington Post.

“The unique thing about President Trump is that he knows what it costs to run a plane.

“Going down [to Mar-a-Lago] ain’t free.”

The three Mar-a-Lago trips in Palm Beach cost the federal treasury around $10m, based on figures used in an October government report analysing White House travel.

This includes cash for coast guards to patrol the exposed shoreline. Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw also says it has cost local taxpayers $360,000 in police overtime for his three weekends in Florida since 20 January.

Judicial Watch estimated Mr Obama’s travel expenses totalled an average $12.1m in each of his eight years in the White House.

Trump Tower security is costing the US taxpayer $400,000 every single day
The New York Mayor is going to send the White House a bill for $35m to cover the cost of the enormous security operation around Trump Tower. Bill De Blasio has said he is going to write to the Obama administration setting out the daily $400,000 bill from November 8 too January 20 - the day of Donald Trump's inauguration. The letter reads: "Municipal or state resources should not be subsidizing the President-Elect's decision to maintain multiple permanent residences.

Hey; it’s only money! Screw the taxpayers!

Yes, the article is from December, but a more recent article reports Melania Trump isn’t moving to Washington, DC, so they’ll still be using heavy security around the building.

Tax breaks are reportedly helping racist, anti-Semitic hate groups disseminate propaganda

  • Whether you like it or not, American taxpayers are likely indirectly helping to subsidize studies of whether people of different races have different IQs — and whether Jewish people are a threat to civil society.
  • That’s according to a new investigation by the AP, which found that four hate groups were able to claim tax-exempt status for the last 10 years. 
  • Organizations included Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute and the New Century Foundation, which “studies” racist ideology.
  • All told, the groups raised $7.8 million, which donors could then use to reduce their tax burden — since donations to 501©(3) organizations are deductible.
  • The AP reports the money raised was primarily used for editorial purposes and conferences to help perpetuate the groups’ ideologies.
  • In all four cases, money was used as personal compensation for the groups’ leaders. Read more

But America has spent more in a month protecting the President on all the vacations he’s taken than they spent on Obama in a whole year. ( http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/donald-trump-costs-trips-security-taxpayer-barack-obama-month-year-a7586261.html )/p>

And transgender kids, refugees, and immigrants and their children can sleep in fear….

America is so great now.
