The price of a can of Coca-Cola? Likely going up. A package of Pampers? That too. Plane tickets? They also may be more expensive. These items and more may cost more in the coming months as people start feeling the effects of higher fuel prices and raw-material costs as well as a range of tariffs.
Janette Hendricks said she has noticed higher prices on â€śjust about everythingâ€ť in the past three months or so. Thatâ€™s put a little pressure on the recently retired nurse in Washington. So she goes shopping less often, â€śmakes things stretch,â€ť and she always shops for things on sale. She said she has also considered going back to work to have more cushion in the budget.
â€śThe economy is doing great, so why is everyone doing so poorly?â€ť she asked....

Replacing Obama is not enoughâ€”Trump has made the negation of Obamaâ€™s legacy the foundation of his own..... all of which could be targeted for destruction or redemption, thus reifying the idea of being white. Trump truly is something newâ€”the first president whose entire political existence hinges on the fact of a black president. And so it will not suffice to say that Trump is a white man like all the others who rose to become president. He must be called by his rightful honorificâ€”Americaâ€™s first white president.

You do realize, Phillip, Donald[URL=https://tinyurl.com/z92bhus]]]"an ignorant, amoral, dishonest and manipulative, misogynistic, philandering, hyper-litigious, isolationist, protectionist blowhard"[/URL]Trump picked the last head of the Federal Reserve?
How so UPS You mean because Trump is a so-called Republican he can't overstep his authority in trying to trample states rights?

Count us in, Mr. Beasley. Weâ€™re with you, though we tend to go with dangerous rather than stupid. And no one could be more surprised that weâ€™re saying this than we are.... [ ]

The Federal Reserve is to blame. Most people are ignorant of how the Fed came into exsistence. The Federal Reserve is unconstitutional it is not a part of the U.S. government. It is also an institution that as well as being illegal, is immoral. A private, secretive group of individuals get to print money according to their political and economic agendas. Guess what? If you and me were to do that we would be arrested and convincted as counterfeiters.
ABC News Radio wrote: ...Environmental groups who support the gas mileage standards that aimed to reduce air pollution slammed the proposal.
"The Trump administrationâ€™s proposal to slam the brakes on Americaâ€™s successful Clean Car Standards is a massive pileup of bad ideas," Environmental Defense Fund President Fred Krupp said in a statement. "This proposal will substantially increase pollution and will cost the average American family hundreds of dollars a year extra for gas."
"Itâ€™s a proposal that attacks the statesâ€™ right to protect people from dangerous pollution, one that no one -- not the American public, not the states, not even most automakers -- really wants, and one thatâ€™s being presented to the public under the false and easily discredited guise of improving public safety," the statement continued....

Paul Krugman wrote: Thereâ€™s no mystery about the Republican agenda. For at least the past 40 years, the G.O.P.â€™s central policy goal has been upward redistribution of income: lower taxes for the wealthy, big cuts in programs that help the poor and the middle class. Weâ€™ve seen that agenda at work in the policies of every Republican president from Reagan to Trump, every budget proposal from party stars like Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House.
This policy agenda is, however, deeply unpopular. Only [URL=https://tinyurl.com/ybejvdeh]]]https://tinyurl.com/ybejvdeh (small minorities)[/URL] of voters favor tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations; even [URL=https://tinyurl.com/ychddy52]]]https://tinyurl.com/ychddy52 (smaller minorities)[/URL] favor cuts in major social programs. So how does the G.O.P. stay politically competitive? The answer is that the party has mastered the tactics of bait and switch: pretending to stand for one thing, then doing something quite different in office....
