  • Q: Many elected officials, including Karen, believe that the Trump Agenda is divisive and the wrong path forward, so they are working to resist it. How would you like to see your elected officials resist the Trump Agenda?
    A: Speak out, I think Nancy Pelosi got played when she made a deal with Trump. By making the deal they GOP was able to go back to the AHCA and ressurect it. If the House/Senate had to work on the Harvey Bill, the financial bill, raise the debt ceiling, etc the GOP couldn’t have played Pelosi. I promise you Trump and McConnel and Speaker Ryan the liar will bring this up at a later date and say how they played the Democrats. Pelosi thought she was doing the right thing for the folks of Harvey and Irma but were not looking at the bigger picture because Trump and McConnel and Speaker Ryan and Grassley, Lesley Graham and the others are always playing a game and that does not include the United States Citizens. The GOP is working for Wall Street, big Pharma, Insurance companies, and the banks, their buddies the Kock Brother’s who own the Heritage Foundation (corrupt group), Citizens United that allowed for corporations to donate as much money as they wanted into our political system including those from other countries. Harvey and Irma, Marie and any other hurriane should be a separate bill that no Senator or Congressmen/women can add any pork or any anything to the bill. There should be zero pork in any bill. We are broke Americans and yet these same fisically conservative Senators/Representatives love to put extra money into the bills for their personal goodies for their communities so they can get re-elected. Thank you Representative Bass for what you are trying to do with the AHCA and I think there will be a time that you are invited to the White House. I hope you realize you will be invited so you can be used for a pawn and that you don’t drink the koolaid. I think it is smart to listen but not sign a deal or become enamored of the situation. I woud like to see Bass fight against Trump and his son’s and Pruitt from raping our national forrests and the four moneument/national parks that he would like to turn into profit machines for the Trumps. We put the national parks into protected lands because of people like Pruitt and the former Governor of Texas Perry. I think Bass should work toward putting a bill forward that makes the citizens of Texas buy flood insurance since they don’t pay a state tax. Texas is a state with only 2 out of 10 people purchasing Texas is an insult to the American tax payer. Bass should put forth bills that we stop rebuilding roads and public buildings in areas that are in flood zones. We are continually wasting tax dollars on government buildings, roads, along with homes that have flooded numerous times and this should include all states. You have free will to not buy insurance so you shouldn’t expect the tax payer to pay for your poor choices. Texas for years made a choice not to put in drainage and dams to protect the people. They fought for 20 years over the money for some dams and now it will cost 600 million. Time to make Texans pay a state tax for the costs of these protections. Texans and many Americans have forgotten how many hundreds of millions we have given them to upgrade their lack of a system for flooding. Most Texans like Lying Ted Cruz refuse to believe in Climate Change or costing Texans one more dime, and look where that got him. It cost money to do the right thing Cruz. There has to be a limit that the taxpayer should pay for states that choose to stick their head in the sand and do nothing and make any change to make sure we do more to support climate change. It is time that the gas companies pay their portion. How do they think the water warmed up, with a big water heater that we put in the big ocean? Texas and the refineries have to pay for their share of what they have gotten away with for decades and destroyed the ozone, polluted the air and the water and lyin Cruz is going to have to make his constituients pay unless they plan for yearly Harvey’s. Cruz’s stupidity deserves a censure from Representative Bass for having been such a stupid Senator. Tax payers should not have to pay for stupid Senators/Congressmen/women. Bass should bring forth a bill that would make it illegal for men to masterbate and ejaculate as that would be potentially destory a human being since this same group is against Planned Parenthood that takes care of women. Bass should not allow the government to make medical decisions against medication that affects chronic pain sufferers because drug addicts get high and die from opiates. Karen Bass should be fighting for chronic pain sufferers who are being attacked by her and her cohorts that think they are going to help people by taking away opiates. What she and Chris Christy, Grassley and the rest of the uninformed are causing more pain patients to lose their doctors have kiled themselves because the intractable pain is too much and yet she and her cohorts don’t bring up the pain sufferers. The chronic pain sufferers who take opiates and benefit from them are not brought before any committee to tell their story and how the opiates make their life possible and how they wouldn’t survive without the pain medication. Those who are real pain sufferers are not getting high, not dying, they are just trying to cope and live a life that doesn’t cause them to want to jump out of a window because the pain is so bad, despite all of the different treatment they have tried. I know I have written Representative Bass and have gotten inane comments back on opiates as well on the robo calls. I can say that other than the opiates represenative Bass has worked hard to fight for healthcare and pre-existing conditions, Trump’s profiting from being president along with his family. I would like to see Bass make sure not one corporation get a tax break. The corportations have taken huge loans from the Feds with the zero percent loans and purchased companies. They did not hire anyone or create anything. When we finally raise the interest rates who do you think will cry the loudest when the interest notes come do. The corporations don’t create jobs. Look how many of our corporations are laying off thousands of jobs and Trump and company want to give them more tax breaks. They should not be able to write off their golf, their football rooms/seats, donating money to the ballet when they are a public corporations. The CEO’s can donate their own money. The corporations get so many write offs from the tax laws they will pay less and less. It is already a joke that these companies are paying the taxes of their CEO’s in some cases. that they give a person who is being fired a golden parachute package. If you are going to give a CEO or board member or your favorite corporate employee the golden parachute you should have to give the golden parachute to every person in the company. The golden parachute is a scam and should be eliminated. I would like to see that Bass bring a bill that if an insurance company doesn’t want to go on the exchange that they can’t sell a policy via Medicare, Medicaid, or in the private sector. It is time to take the USA back from the corporations. I would like to see a bill that does not allow a company to go to Ireland and such and pretend they are an overseas company and stay in the USA and they can pay a lovely import tax if they want to sell their product in the USA. The company doesn’t get to have it both ways. I want to see Bass stop Microsoft, Oracle, etc bring in folks from India and make the Americans train them for the jobs the Americans have because of the bogus loophole that if Microsoft,etc pays $60,000.00 or whatever it is to stop that law. We have cheated our own workers in the computer field, the medical field, nursing, etc. How is it legal that our government (congressmen and senators) allowed these rules where Americans had to train foreigners for their jobs, go on unemployment, not find a job, and the companies lie about how we don’t have any Americans who are capable to do a job? What a hoax. Like all Americans are dumb. I would agree we have at least 64 million aren’t that bright, but Americans should not be training any foreigner to do their job unless we can’t fill the job and that has been a scam for decades. We have the top universities that thousands of foreigners want to come to and the nerve of the corporations to say Americans aren’t capable of doing the jobs. We invent half the crap and yet we can’t do the jobs. We need to close the loop hole for the visas for the foreigners and taking the jobs. Once we have gotten the Americans jobs and we need more people than we search them out. We need to stop Trump and the idiot female he has working saying birth control is a failure. If birthcontrol was a failure we would have a few billion more people on the earth. For all the baby lovers and folks that say they are prochoice, try adopting the children that are in Foster Care. We have one million kids and the prochoice folks need to step up or shut up. I love that they are against healthcare, food for the kids or people, forget about the Veterans they claim to love as they wave the flag and yet you are willing to step over the man who is talking to himself. Just remember, he was once Joe Average and went overseas, fought, saw his buddies blown to bits, and killed people when he was never a killer, and since he is home he should forget about the most stressful part of his life. I would like Bass to force Trump to stop the roll back of the laws that protect our lands. Allowing the coal jobs and the poison that goes into our water for the few coal jobs wil cost the tax payer more that what the coal jobs bring in. Poisoning our water has been going on for centuries because of the coal industry and they haven’t paid a dime for the damage to the water, air and land. The coal companies haven’t paid a dime for the cancer and damage to the reproductive parts of women and the problems that children have as a result of the poisoning of the coal. How many of the folks from coal country are bottling up the poison water and selling it to the Trump Administration or at least drink the poison they want the people of the Appalacha to drink. It doesn’t take a genius that the water travels and will go downstream and posion many others. I want to see the EPA put back together. Trump and the idiots running the EPA aren’t even aware that Nixon created the EPA. We need the EPA now more than ever. Why do you think so many towns and big cities and corporations are making the changes to help their companies because of the positive benefits for the health of the companies employees and the health of their bottom line. Trump will try and take credit, but it was Obama who got the ball running. I want to have the exchanges for the polluters stopped. If you have used your pollution script up that no more polluting for you. Why is it we all want to breath? Such an odd phenomenon. I want to see Ivanka and Jared gone from the White House. Both of them are a liability. They have zero experience. Ivanka who states she does not have to speak up. Dude, you are the advisior to the President, it is your job to speak up even if the President, daddy doesn’t like what you are going to say. If you can’t handle confrontation and recogninzing that you have to speak up than get the hell out of the White House. You aren’t their to take pictures of you and the kids at the White House. Isn’t funny that Ivanka doesn’t even recognize that her dad gave her husband a top job above her. I want to see that we have zero nepotism because it is toxic. I want to see Trump’s taxes or have a good hacker hack them. I want jared out. If Jared Kushner feels like he is a woman, I am okay with that. If Jaren can’t tell the difference when he fills out an application for the voting form and checks female/woman, than he should not be in the White House. THE DETAILS MATTER IN THE WHITE HOUSE OF ALL PLACES. I would like to see Tom Price removed from his job. Price should be removed from office for insider stock trading, along with his corrupt beliefs that we don’t need healthcare and should go back to the High Risk Pools in the States that failed. The states failed at insurance for years and Tom Price (so called doctor Price) and he thinks we should go to the states for great healthcare. Mnchinn is corrupt and cheated us for the bank he purchased and dumped on the tax payers at a loss as he made millions should be in jail. Mnchin is another corrupt person from crooked Goldman Sach’s. Goldman Sach’s has been running the White House for decades and helped get us into the debacle we are in. Tim Geitner was a Goldman’s disaster. Lyin Cruz’s wife is the head of the Houston Goldman Sach’s office where he got his million dollar loan that he could never have gotten anywhere else by walking through the door. I would like to see Trump not roll back the Barney Frank Law. We need our banks acting as our fiduciary and not trying to steal from us or enhance their bottom line while ripping us off. Jaimie dimon of Morgan/Chase robbed America whilst he made sure his dirty bonds were sold before the crash. Jaimie Dimon and Mr. Morgan walked away without going to jail. I would like to see the people responsible for the crimes to go to jail. The to big to fail or to big to jail is a joke. Mr. Morgan new that Bernie was a fraud and the money he was stealing from his clients was going on and it was going on at his bank for years. If we can investigate the heck out of the Clinton’s for years we can go back and go after the men and women that stole trillions from Americans and foreigners in 2008. I would like to make sure that we keep Title Nine in place. I do not think we can make all the dreamers citizens that are over 15. Once someone is a citizen we will have to pay for Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc. We can not have someone become a citizen at 30 and say you are American. That is already at least ten plus years of working and tax paying that the County did not get. I don’t think we can continue to honor those families that have broken the law. We have educated, medicated, and done enough. I do believe many have worked hard, and I think many have allowed their troubled kids to come home and lay their head on the pillow knowing they were out doing things they should not have been doing. I think we need workers and we can sign you up legally in your country. I think we should choose people who follow our laws and reward them. I don’t like the idea of someone constantly looking over their shoulder or being threatened because of lack of documents and that is why I think it is important to obey the laws. I do not like having a President who calls Mexicans rapists, drug dealers and killers. Did this same man forget these are the hard working people who were cleaning the hotel rooms in his many hotels, the janitors, the men that were building the hotel in Washington, DC, the men/women who were checking people into their rooms at the hotels, etc. How does he condemn these people and hire them at the same time? We had a system years ago where we went to towns and found farm workers, and we knew who they were, they were vetted, they paid taxes, they got refunds from taxes. The bad part was there were some farmers that took advantage of the Mexicans and charged them for sleeping quarters that were like living in squalor, and the water wasn’t potable, and the people were crammed together with too many people in a room. The Mexicans didn’t complain because of being threatened with their job because they knew someone else would take their job. No one should live in such conditions. Just as today, no matter what country you come from, when you pick fruits or vegetables you shouldn’t go home with cancer because you are standing in poison, or you should not have to take a pee in a toilet that is over flowing and disgusting because you are considered an illegal. I think it is time to go back to the towns or confront the workers in the farm communities we have now and vet them and give them a pathway to citizenship since they have been doing back breaking labor and standing in Round up and help them out. I can’t say I agree with all of the othr stuff at the moment, but I would like to see Karen Bass fight for some of the farm workers. I would like to see a bill that allows the Illegals that joined the armed services get the citizenship they were promised. My Irish releatives in the 60’s that wanted citizenship had to fight in the Vietman War. It was supposed to be for a limited time but the Irish were forced to fight long and they got their citizenship. If you fight for the USA you deserve to be a citizen. I think the DREAMERS and others can prove they want to be citizens by signing up for the armed services just the way the Irish had to in the sixties. Citizenship has to be fair to all who obey the American laws and who wait their turn until their number is called. Many times it takes years and those who cross the border illegally forget we can’t cross into Mexico. Mexico enforces their laws and they do it quiclky and swiftly. If you are sick they dump you at the border. Mexico doesn’t wait until you are stablilized, Mexico doesn’t care if you are in labor, need kidney dialysis, food or a room over your head and Mexicans can’t expect the same from the American tax payer. We also can’t lay all of this at the foot of the Mexican. The corporations that hire are part of the problem and the corporations deserve to have a bill written about them and enforces. I believe we already have several bills that have been written when Bush (W) was president and he always called off the raids of the corporations. None of the Congress/Senate wanted to see the donations that come their way leave and they did not enforce our laws. Instead, all the blame was put at the foot of the person with darker feet and that isn’t fair. People wouldn’t cross the border if the jobs weren’t being offered to them. I would like to see Karen Bass continue to fight to kepp the best parts of Obamacare. I would like to see Bass bring an amendment to have a huge statue of Obama made in his likeness for getting rid of Osama Bin Laden. I would like to see if there is a way to have Mitch McConnel and the other seven censured for working against the American people when Obama was President. They were subversive and trying to obstruct justice and to keep America moving forward because they were prejudice, spoiled, entitled, white Americans. I beg you Representative Bass that you and your cohorts are killing those of us with chronic and intractable pain who rely on strong pain medication, are doctors don’t have time to write letters asking for us to have over the limits of the medications that you are putting in, we have had too many suicides from chronic pain sufferers because you are all short sighted and don’t understand how pain works, and addicts are different than chronic pain sufferers. The addicts wil be on to the next drug de jour and where will we be? You will be forcing law abiding citizens into doing things they would never do. Are you asking us to move to Belgium and as for death by euthenasia because you think we should suffer? We aren’t law breakers Reprentative Bass. We can’t go back and change the operations, the medical mistakes that doctors made, the nerves that were damaged, the car accidents, the drunk drivers that have injured and killed and maimed people and continue to do so everyday. What you, Grasssley, Chris Christy, Trump and the rest is so short sighted is a joke. Why aren’t you stopping smoking when you know it kills and costs us money? Why aren’t you stopping the drinking, the bars and the beers and spirits companies? Why are you punishing millions of people who suffer and suffer and don’t have options other than killing themselves except that they want to live. Addicts choose to get high and they choose to die, the same way when someone drinks and drives, they know they can crash and kill and they don’t care. Obviously, drug addicts free will, alcoholics free will, smokers and the obeses free will is more important than those of us who are in intractable pain and can’t move and function isn’t entitled to the same free wil. 187,000 die of obesity related deaths in the United States yearly and that my dear is the epidemic but no one will stop Governor Chris Christy, Trump, or any of the obese from getting their oreos, soda, ice cream, chocolate, etc. The Obese are causing insurance to skyrocket, more workdays missed, shorter life spans, kids with shorter lifespans, more type II diabetes, more kidney disease and blindness and that is the real epidemic and it is choice and free will. Pain and nerve damage and arthritis, and bone deformities, inability to walk, function, move, spasms, not sleep, that is not free will or choice. That is the human body giving you the middle finger and the opiates is the medication that helps you get out of bed, so one can dress, eat, wash,work, help take care of your family and yourself, try and smile when all you say is the f-word because it hurts when you move, and try and live a normal life and your government is working extra hard to take away your life, scare the hell out of your doctor who has done nothing wrong, and turn insurance companies into doctors when they are not and they decide the kind of life you should have as you pay these greed bast…s money every month for a crap insurance policy.

    A: Trump’s “agenda” [I don’t believe he has one] is absurd. It amounts to letting big corporations and the wealthy rape and pillage more than they already have.
    But, I do not care about the “social” issues the Alt-Right uses to “bait” Democrats. For example, I could not possibly care less whether “transgender” people are allowed in the military. Nor do I care what bathroom they use. Caring about an issue like that is like trying to decide what china pattern to buy after you rebuild your house that is in the process of burning to the ground.
    I support tolerance toward all people but we cannot be the party whose main interest is protecting transgender people or some other niche, ultra-liberal issue.
    The economy is still in the trash. There is an opiod epidemic. Our standing in the world is dropping daily. Citizens United lets corporations donate unlimited funds to politicians. The GOP has gerrymandered the country. These are real and important issues. But what gets the most attention? Liberal outrage that transgender people won’t be able to join the military. Seriously? We’ve got more immediate concerns than that.
