Two Trump Companies Discovered In Cyprus, EU’s Russian Off-Shore Banking Haven

Oh My...

The Democratic Coalition uncovered two Trump companies registered in Cyprus, the tax haven and money laundering center serving Vladimir Putin and Russian oligarchs.
Notably, Cyprus is the only EU country which has given the Russia military and Navy the right to freely use their bases for operations.

Millionaires the Big Winners From Repealing the Affordable Care Act, New Data Show

Chye-Ching Huang
Paul N. Van de Water

Republican plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would provide large, lopsided tax cuts to households with annual incomes over $1 million, just-released data from the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center (TPC) show.  TPC also finds ACA repeal would significantly raise taxes on about 7 million low- and moderate-income families due to the loss of their premium tax credits to buy health coverage through the marketplace.  These tax increases would compound the harm to low- and moderate-income families from repealing the ACA’s other coverage provisions — cost-sharing assistance and the Medicaid expansion — and would add tens of millions of people to the ranks of the uninsured.

Next target for organizing: Trump’s newly opened (and probably illegal) hotel in Washington DC. Tell us more, HuffPo!

Rachel Maddow says it looks like a giant tacky knife hilt stabbed into the desert. Good call.
I think it looks like Trump's homage to the Tang tinted erect penis.
