Sanders: Trump’s budget is a disaster for Vermont

first_imgby US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) President Trump’s budget is morally obscene and bad economic policy.  It would cause devastating economic pain to tens of thousands of Vermonters making it harder for our children to get a decent education, harder for our working families to get the health care they desperately need, harder to protect our environment, and harder for the elderly to live out their retirement years in dignity.  Sadly, it follows in the footsteps of the Trump-Ryan health care bill which gives massive tax breaks to the people on top, while throwing 23 million Americans off of their health insurance and dramatically raising premiums for older workers.This is a budget which says that if you are the richest family in America, the Walton family of Wal-Mart, you can get a tax break of up to $52 billion through the repeal of the estate tax.  But, at the same time, it says that if you are a lower income senior citizen in Vermont you and 21,000 other Vermont families will not be able to keep your home warm in the winter because the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) would be abolished.This is a budget that says that if you are the second wealthiest family in America, the Koch brothers family, a family which has contributed many hundreds of millions into the Republican Party, you may get a tax break of up to $38 billion.  But at the same time, if you are a working class student in Vermont trying to figure out how you could possibly afford college, your dream of a college education could disappear along with over 20,000 other Vermonters through the elimination of a number of student financial assistance programs.It is a budget which says that if you are a member of the Trump family you may receive a tax break of up to $4 billion, but if you are a child of a working class family in Vermont you and 100,000 other Vermonters could lose the health insurance you currently have through massive cuts to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Medicaid.At a time when over 40 million Americans are struggling with hunger, the Trump budget would eliminate nutrition assistance to 2,800 pregnant women, new moms, babies, and toddlers in Vermont through a 23 percent cut to the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program.  An additional 21,000 Vermonters would no longer receive the supplemental nutrition assistance they need to feed their families.The Trump budget would cut-off affordable housing assistance to more than 700 Vermont families, putting them at risk of eviction and homelessness.  It would cut Head Start in Vermont by $1.7 million, which could throw 140 low-income children off high-quality child care and early education.  It would kick 7,100 students in Vermont off of after-school programs. Meanwhile, at a time of massive wealth and income inequality, President Trump would provide a $3 trillion tax break to the top 1 percent over a ten year period.  This is the Robin Hood principle in reverse – taking from the poor and working people and giving to the very rich.  When Donald Trump campaigned for president, he told the American people that he would be a different type of Republican.  That he would take on the political and economic establishment.  That he would stand up for working people.  That he understood the pain that families all over this country were feeling. Sadly, this budget exposes all of that verbiage for what it really was – just cheap campaign rhetoric that was meant to get votes — nothing more than that.The budget that President Trump has proposed would break virtually every promise he made to the working people of this country.  During the campaign, candidate Trump promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.But now that he is president, Donald Trump has proposed a budget and health care bill that would slash Medicaid by more than $1 trillion, raid the Medicare fund by more than $125 billion, and make massive cuts to Social Security for people who have severe disabilities, children who have lost their parents, and the poor. The economic theory embraced by the Trump budget, trickle-down economics, is and it has always been an abysmal failure and a fraud.  This is a budget written by the billionaire class and is designed to benefit the billionaire class.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.President Trump’s budget must be soundly defeated and replaced with a budget that meets the needs of working families, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor – not just the 1 percent.Washington. 5.30.2017last_img read more

FLASHBACK: The Top 10 WWE Summerslam Main Events Of All Time

first_img Related TopicsBret HartJohn CenaSummerslamThe UndertakerWWE Summerslam WWE Summerslam is known as the biggest party of the summer, and for good reason.  The main event is typically the result of a 3-month buildup, much the same way we look at WrestleMania.  This year’s main event, not so much.  Although it has had a “3 Year” build up, the thought of yet another Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar clash doesn’t have many thrilled.Let’s cast that aside for now and look back at some Main Events still talked about today, and that have lived in WWE lore forever.  For sake of playing fair, I decided the easiest way to list the top 10 would be in chronological order.  Enjoy!1988 – The Mega Bucks vs The Mega PowersThe main event that started it all featured the evil Million Dollar Man and Andre The Giant facing the greatest force in wrestling history.  The Mega Powers were red hot as the tandem of Hulk Hogan and Macho Man were unstoppable.  Throw in Jesse The Body Ventura to make the three count on Ted Dibase and this one was not too be missed!1991 – The Match Made In HellThe name was hokey but the carnage was real as these two teams hooked it up in front of a rowdy MSG crowd.  The Triangle of Terror took on Hulk Hogan & The Ultimate Warrior.  We would come to find out years later that The Ultimate Warrior almost skipped this match after he held up Vince McMahon for more money.  In the end yet another special guest referee, this time Sid Justice would raise Hogan’s hand in victory when all the smoke cleared.  Literally, there was napalm powder that looked like smoke.1992 – Macho Man vs The Ultimate WarriorThis match was part one of the gigantic double main event as Macho Man Randy Savage defended his WWF World Championship against The Ultimate Warrior.  The storyline heading into this one was whose corner Mr. Perfect would be in.  It turned out to be neither as Perfect and Ric Flair would come down and attack both men.  The match itself, was an instant classic and would be good enough to close the show if the greatest Summerslam match in history wasn’t up next.1992 – British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith vs Bret HartIn what is widely considered the greatest match in Summerslam History, these two men put together a true spectacle for the ages.  The brothers in law were both fan favorites, but the hometown boy Smith had the 82,000 strong in Wembley Stadium firmly behind him.  Hart carried 99% of the match, but it was his shoulders pinned to the matt when it was over as Smith walked away with Harts Intercontinental title.1997 – The Undertaker vs Bret HartThe drama was so thick you could cut it with a knife.  If Hart failed to capture The Undertakers WWF World Championship, he would never again be allowed to wrestle in America. It was yet another special guest referee playing a major role in this one, as Shawn Michaels accidentally hit The Undertaker with a steel chair, to cost the Deadman the belt.1999 – HHH vs Mankind vs Stone Cold Steve AustinWhile the match itself wasn’t a classic for Austin’s WWF World Title, you can’t forget about a match featuring 3 future Hall of Famers.  Four if you count “special guest referee” Jesse The Body Ventura.  In an ending no one saw coming, it was Mankind walking away with the title with the shocking win.2000 – HHH vs Kurt Angle vs The RockThe Rocks championship was on the line as these three men tore down the house.  This match is memorable for HHH attempting to pedigree Kurt Angle through a table.  The table would give out and Angle would end up with a legitimate concussion.  This made way for the most electrifying man in sports entertainment to take center stage.  The Rock shined as always and managed to retain despite the relentless attack both men brought at him.2002 – The Rock vs Brock LesnarIn what was supposed to be a passing of the torch moment, Brock Lesnar defeated The Rock cleanly to win the WWE World Unified Championship.  The crowd was behind Brock as well.  It was a landmark night.2005 – Shawn Michaels vs Hulk HoganIcon vs Icon was a dream match and despite the ego of Hogan getting in the way leading up to it, it delivered on every level.  People tend to bash this match for HBK’s over acting, but in my opinion it made it even better.  This match was excellent, and falls only behind Bulldog vs Bret Hart for best ever.  Hogan even posed with Michaels after the big win.2010 – The Nexus vs Team Cena/WWEThe best matches in Summerslam history continue to be the ones without the World Championship on the line.  This one was no different.  Team Cena featured men like Bret Hart, Edge and Chris Jericho, a regular murders row.  Also, a young upstart by the name of “Daniel Bryan”.The drama was unreal as The Nexus was seen as the biggest unstoppable force since the NWO.  The Wade Barrett led group seemed unbeatable.  That is of course, until the Cena led squad beat them.  Despite the predictable ending, it was still a great match!It was tough to narrow down 30 main events, to just 10 of the very best.  Here below are a few that didn’t make the top cut, but were worthy of honorable mention.1998 The Undertaker vs Stone Cold Steve Austin2004 Randy Orton vs Chris Beniot2009 CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy2013 John Cena vs Daniel Bryan2015 Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker Vince McKeelast_img read more

Rockford, ranked third in Division 1, is now 4-0.Friesen did a lot of damage when the Sailors could least afford it.Mona Shores led 14-7 with just seconds left before halftime when Friesen broke loose for a 51-yard touchdown run. The PAT kick made the score 14-14 at the break.Mona Shores’ Tre’shawn Hatcher takes the hand-off from Caden Broersma. Photo/Eric SturrThen late in the game, with Rockford clinging to a 27-21 lead and facing a fourth-and-one at the Mona Shores 37, Friesen broke through for another touchdown scamper to ice the victory for his team.“He’s a big back,” said Mona Shores Coach Matt Koziak. “They do a great job. They don’t deviate from what they do, which is why they’ve been in the playoffs for 20-plus years. That’s a great football team, it was a great football game, but we’ve got to play better in games like this.”The Sailors were their own worst enemies at key times, particularly in the fatal second half.After falling behind 20-14 in the third quarter, Mona Shores mishandled a snap from center and Rockford jumped on the loose ball, giving the Rams first down at the Sailor 20. The Mona Shores defense held its ground, forcing Rockford to attempt and miss a 31-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, and it looked like a new ballgame.But the Sailors were flagged for roughing the kicker, a 15-yard penalty, and two plays later Friesen scored from a yard out. The extra point put Rockford up 27-14.Mona Shores fought back, scoring on a 5-yard run by Brady Rose with 1:22 left in the game, and the extra point pulled the Sailors within striking distance at 27-21.Mona Shores then tried an onside kick, but the ball went out of bounds and Rockford took over at the Sailor 46. The Sailor defense again held tough, forcing the Rams into the fourth down situation with 1:05 remaining, before Friesen nailed the coffin shut with his final touchdown run.Mona Shores’ Brady Rose turns the corner and picks up a first down for the Sailors. Photo/Eric Sturr“We didn’t execute when we had to, but a lot of that had to do with Rockford and their scheme,” Koziak said. “You can’t get behind the sticks against Rockford.”Rockford took the opening kickoff of the game, drove 77 yards on 14 plays, and scored on a 4-yard run by Friesen. The Sailors answered on their first possession, driving 71 yards on eight plays for a TD, which was scored on a 31-yard run by Rose. The extra point made the score 7-7.The teams traded punts after that, then the Sailors went up 14-7 midway through the second quarter on a 19-yard touchdown run by Tre Hatcher.That lead nearly held up until halftime, but a tough decision took that opportunity away.The Sailors faced a fourth-and-three at the Rockford 43 with under a minute left in the half. They decided to go for the first down, but were stopped short, giving Rockford the ball with 25 seconds left. Friesen broke loose for his 51-yard touchdown on third-and-14 from the Rockford 49, and the Rams went into the locker room with the momentum.“There is still another half to play, but going in 14-7 instead of 14-14 is really different, for sure,” Koziak said.That led to the second-half mistakes by the Sailors and three more Friesen touchdowns, and Mona Shores had its first loss of the season.While Koziak was disappointed with the loss, he credited the players for staying in the game despite their errors. He also encouraged them to remember the pain of the loss and use it for motivation down the road.“Ultimately you want to win football games,” the coach said. “The kids work extremely hard, so this should hurt and this should feel bad, because this is what they work for. We don’t want them to forget what this feels like. They should draw energy from this.”Hatcher led the Sailors with 71 yards on 10 carries while Rose finished with 67 on five carries. Cam Sobish led the defense with 12 tackles and Gary Humphrey recorded nine. DEAL OF THE DAY Not relevant × Thank you! This will help us improve your ad experience.

President Trump’s Inauguration Speech Sounds Familiar to Batman Fans

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Those who didn’t vote for President Donald Trump may joke that he reminds them of a comic book villain — but he’s not helping matters by directly quoting one in his inauguration speech.Fans of the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises thought Trump’s speech sounded a bit familiar — well, at least the part where he said, “Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.”In The Dark Knight Rises, the villain Bane, played by Tom Hardy, tells the residents of Gotham City, “We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people.”Of course, it didn’t take long for someone to make a mashup of Trump’s speech and the movie clip.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Two homicides linked to killing of psychiatrist who consulted on JonBenet case: Police

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHOENIX) — The killing of two paralegals has been tied to the recent murder of the notable forensic psychiatrist who worked on the JonBenet Ramsey case in Phoenix the day before, Arizona police said.Veleria Sharp, 48, and Laura Anderson, 49, were both shot about 2:15 p.m. on Friday near the law office where they worked as paralegals.One of the women was shot in the head and attempted to get help by flagging down a bus parked at a nearby intersection near the law firm the law firm Burt, Feldman, Greneir, whose offices are located on East 1st near North 75th Streets in the Old Town section of town.That woman was rushed to a local hospital and pronounced dead, according to a police release.Responding officers then found another woman who was wounded, police said.On Saturday, investigators in Scottsdale say the killings of Sharp and Anderson were tied to the murder of the psychiatrist, Steven Pitt.“Our investigation has determined that this double homicide is related to the shooting of Steven Pitt on May 31, 2018, in Phoenix,” they said.Pitt, a 59-year-old father of two children, was found shot to death outside his Phoenix office on Thursday night.Cops noted that there they were responding to reports of a third homicide on Saturday a neighborhood known as The Greens at Gainey Ranch — some 17 minutes away from the law office crime scene.So far, it’s unclear if it is related to the other three murders.He earned acclaim as a forensic psychiatrist who consulted with law enforcement on a number of high-profile cases, including the mysterious death of JonBenet Ramsey back in 1996.On Thursday, witnesses told Phoenix police they heard an argument between two people outside his office followed by gunfire, according to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV.A $1,000 reward has been offered for the capture of Pitt’s killer.Police describe the suspected shooter as a bald Caucasian man wearing a dark hat with a short brim.Steven Pitt & Associates is headquartered in Phoenix, but Pitt worked on a number of nationally known cases, including Ramsey’s murder. The murder of the 6-year-old beauty pageant competitor found dead in the basement of her family’s Boulder, Colorado, home has never been solved.Pitt was brought on by Boulder police and the district attorney to consult on the case in February 1997.In a 1999 profile of Pitt by the Phoenix New Times, centered around the Ramsey investigation, the psychiatrist was described as “a street-smart, openly ambitious wiseguy who seems most comfortable helping detectives sort out the psychopathology that has led someone — known or unknown — to commit a crime.”After Pitt’s consultation on the “Baseline Killer,” the suspect, Mark Goudeau, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2011 for nine murders.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Inter set to beat Manchester United and Chelsea to signing of Stefan de Vrij

first_img1 Inter Milan are closing in on a deal to beat Manchester United and Chelsea to the signing of Stefan de Vrij.The Dutch central defender is out of contract at Lazio in 2018 and he has so far refused to pen a contract extension – despite a late attempt by the Italian club.The reason he has not signed a renewal, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport, is because he has his heart set on joining Inter Milan.Scouts from the San Siro club will be in attendance at the two Holland games this week, in which de Vrij is expected to play.However, their presence has been described as merely a formality with Inter already lining up a summer offer.Lazio do not want to lose him on a free, when his contract expires next year, so are expected to cash in on him when the window opens in order to fund a move for a new defender.United and Chelsea are both aware of the situation but they look set to miss out on him with Inter willing to meet the fee and hand de Vrij a four-year deal.
