14 weeks agoRandall Lipsius Don't let Trump come up here and try to sell you on his bad Tax Reform bill. It will hurt this country $$ and hurt people like me who need the medical deduction!
15 weeks agoJayne Brown What about illegal immigrants receiving government benefits such as food stamps? If government employees know the person is illegally here... what is mandatory in working with them? What if there is CPS reports on those who are here illegally?
An emailer wants to know why Republicans in Congress aren't working with President Trump to pass our agenda. I outline a number of examples in the video response here, but look for an opinion editorial I will be submitting in a few days for an update on legislative accomplishments of the 115th Congress.
16 weeks agoDeborah Singletary Trump and congress is working hard but I find it hard that Obama got more passed when they had fewer in congress. (DEMS). IS this what is happening to R? But the Democrats fell short of the ambitious election gains they had hoped for and their rivals had feared. Because Obama's party lacks the 60 Senate votes needed to defuse legislative obstructions, Republicans have their backs to the wall but can still make canny manoeuvres.
16 weeks agoBrennan Dyk I do not support GMO labeling. Since organic already means non-GMO, if someone cares about items being non-GMO, then they can stick to buying those. If someone is concerned about GMOs, companies right now are voluntarily telling you that their product is non-GMO. So if you want to buy non-GMO, you buy organic or self-labeled non-GMO. You could then already safely assume that everything else is genetically modified. Not sure why you would need a new system to do this. https://www.usda.gov...organic-products
16 weeks agoDeborah Singletary if labeling increases the cost of the product why can' they have some that are not labeled for ppl who do not care? Why do ppl have to pay for things they don't want. Like Obamacare?
16 weeks agoTerri Edmonson Scott YES. PLEASE. I do not support GMO's, I think you are being given the wrong information on them. If a GMO is produced to kill insects when they bite the plant, don't you think that same plant will also be toxic to humans. So then who decides how much toxic ingredients are safe & if you have a salad with the gmo's you are getting that much more in your system. GMO's are also cross breeding in the fields & creating hybrids that were never intended. Indian farmers are now producing more on organic farms than they ever did using gmo's.
