The npr link has the resolution (bill) also.
And a liberal continues to complain about our democracy and can never understand that WE ARE NOT a DEMOCRACY! We are a republic! Understanding our own constitution is far more important than understanding Marxism unless your goal is to live in a Marxist nation. But if you want to understand about freedom, not about democracy; read the UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION and BILL of RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!
Isn't that the constitution that did not include American Indians as citizens?

Maybe we could arm some of the Democrat beloved illegals and send them to Venezuela to shoot their way thru. Something must be done and soon. We cannot sit back and watch them lose the fight as we did with the Hungarians. They begged for help and we let them down. They went down fighting. Our darkest history. Then we helped the Muslims to destroy Yugoslavia. Make any sense?
The rivalry between Croatia and Serbia had nothing to do with Islam. The growth multiple ethnic nationalist groups following the death of Tito and weakening of the Yugoslav communists led to the breakup, not just Muslim discontent.
Yeah! Those other stations were real fair during 2016. HA! HA! HA!
CNN almost always has Trump apologists on any panel discussing political issues. More than a few have histories of working for Republican office holders and candidates.

This should be in it's own thread, not one on "Reparations for slavery", although the GND might satisfy any need for reparations.

It seems to be a list of aspirations with some suggestions on how to attain those aspirations. It doesn't specify any expenditures, so people will make guesses...
In February 2019, the American Action Forum, which Bloomberg News described as "a Republican-aligned think tank," estimated that the plan could cost between $51 and $93 trillion over the next decade. They estimate its potential cost as $600,000 per household. The organization estimated the cost for eliminating carbon emissions from the transportation system could cost $1.3-$2.7 trillion; guaranteeing a job to every American $6.8-$44.6 trillion; universal health care estimated close to to $36 trillion.
Notice, this is not debt
, but cost
. AOC has made some suggestion about how to pay for these additional costs.
I would assume that Medicare taxes would go some toward paying for the $36 trillion universal health care estimate.
While your "little bird" was trickling in your ear with his little pecker he probably also left a larger deposit on your shoulder that may spread further and faster than the progressive rumor he was trying to start and spread. Apparatchik agitprop is truly a nasty business.
There is probably an law about jokes posted on the internet similar to Poe's Law about irony. My family can always tell when I'm joking, but for some reason they never laugh...
To understand my Crypto-juslim "joke", one would need some familiarity with Sicilianthing's posts.

That still only accounts for 90%.
Do you mean, this accounts for only 90% of the US governments spending? This condition is called "deficit spending".

OK, let's try it this way. Who is the US government's biggest creditor, by far?
Off the top of my head, I would say, the Social Security Administration is the US government's biggest creditor.

None of my ancestors were on the American continents when Columbus crossed the ocean blue.
None of my ancestors immigrated to the United States of America.
So you dont know where you came from or who your ancestors were.
I have to make a correction. Many of my ancestors might have been naturalized under the original United States Naturalization Law of March 26, 1790, when it was enacted. I say "might" because I can't attest that they would have been judged "of good moral character". I have traced my family lines back at least four generations, most five and six, a few further back. None of these ancestors immigrated to the United States of America.
You can believe all this crap about Numbers all day long... I’m a member I know daily what they’re doing.
You can think the SPLC is also doing any good thing, They’re NOT but I do like some of their research.
Either way, what side are you on ?
Are you a transplant by chance ?
Am I a transplant? If you are asking where my ancestors and I came from, as far as I have been able to determine, none of the US citizens in my family lines immigrated to the United States of America, none were naturalized, and all who lived in the US were US citizens.
Perhaps I should have said, "I like to
imagine that's paid with the money we borrow from the Chinese."

The most recent forecast from the Office of Manage... (
The federal government estimated it would receive $3.422 trillion in revenue. Most of the taxes are paid by you, either through income or payroll taxes:
Income taxes contribute $1.622 trillion or 49 percent of total receipts.
Social Security, Medicare, and other payroll taxes add $1.238 trillion or 36 percent.
Corporate taxes supply $225 billion or 7 percent.
Excise taxes and tariffs contribute $152 billion or 4 percent.
Earnings from the Federal Reserve's holdings add $55 billion or 2 percent. Those are interest payments on the U.S. Treasury debt the Fed acquired through quantitative easing.
Estate taxes and other miscellaneous revenue supply the remaining 2 percent.
