Weekly Wrap-Up

After one of the best jobs reports ever, the Trump tax cuts continue to make America’s economy great again.  Ironic, isn’t it, that many corporations that are celebrating the tax cuts with boosts in pay and benefits for workers, actually supported Hillary Clinton – who would never have given the economy such a massive jolt.

There was bad news this week, though, about Social Security and Medicare – both programs are facing fiscal catastrophes.  Washington’s answer for too long has been to do nothing, and Obamacare actually weakened Medicare. And now Bernie Sanders and the Democrats want “Medicare for All” that will put more burdens on the program.

Here’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll: What concerns you the MOST about Medicare and Social Security’s financial collapse? 

As Democrats go left and then even farther left, our conservative candidate Marc Molinaro is actually presenting sound ideas for New York. 

What do you think would be the BEST outcome of electing a conservative governor? That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

Molinaro also understands that unlimited power helps entrenched pols like Andrew Cuomo take more and more control of our lives – so he’s pledging to limit himself to two terms if he’s elected governor and calling for term limits… two four-year terms for state offices including governor, and 12-year limits for state lawmakers.

Kudos to him for moving the term limits debate forward – and let’s keep it going with this third question in our new Weekly Poll: What is the main reason that you think term limits would be good for New York? 

Other news items I want to make sure you didn’t miss this week: 

  • Many are celebrating the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of a baker who didn’t want to participate in a gay wedding, but some think the decision was correct but “half-baked."
  • There seems to be no end to the Obama Administration’s efforts to help Iran – maybe this is the kind of collusion that should be investigated?  

Have a great weekend!
