Political Leaders: The Entire Country is being Held Hostage by 545 People
“The Government only moves slowly for the 99 percent.”
“Donald Trump was not the illness. He was the symptom.”

Donald Trump did not drink from a solitary glass of water in Flint, Michigan and proclaim that the lead-poisoned water was okay to drink. That was Obama.
Donald Trump did not allow the cases of fraud committed by banks and their CEOs to sunset past their statute of limitations. That was Obama.
Donald Trump did not choose to allow millions of homes to go into foreclosure in favor of the banks that caused the collapse of the American Economy. That was Obama.
Donald Trump did not oversee the post-economic recovery a
