The Yoho Flip-Flop

by Mae Shields and Bill Radunovich and other volunteers of Indivisible Gainesville

Dizzy and disoriented by Trump’s daily attempts at gaslighting the American people, we admit we occasionally indulge in a moment of nostalgia for our pre-2016 lives.

Back in 2016, politics had a certain predictable feel. GOP congressional representatives could be counted on to rail against whatever President Obama was up to. And nowhere was this GOP opposition more feverish than when it was directed at budget deficits. Read more

GOP Screws America: Welcome to the most regressive and repulsive tax bill to ever come out of the US Congress.

In the dead of night Saturday (at 1:36am, specifically), the Senate GOP passed the most regressive and repulsive tax bill to ever come out of the US Congress. Under the guise of “tax reform” the Republicans in the Senate (including Florida’s own Marco Rubio) approved a plan that increases our national debt by at least $1.5 trillion, raises the cost of college for middle-class Americans, and adds 13 million people to the ranks of the uninsured.

Indivisible Gainesville’s response to Ted Yoho’s Tax Reform Op-Ed, November 14th Gainesville Sun

Representative Yoho’s Op-Ed is full of omissions and outright lies.

Yoho’s Endorsement of Roy Moore Was Indefensible Even Before the Allegations Surfaced.

Back in September, US Representative Ted Yoho endorsed Roy Moore: “Judge Roy Moore is a proven conservative leader. He refused to bow to political pressure in Montgomery, and he will refuse to bow to political pressure in Washington. We need men like Judge Moore in the Senate to advance the conservative policies America sent us here to enact…I am proud to endorse Judge Moore and look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with him to fight for America, and against the failed status quo of Washington.”

I know what you’re thinking: But that was September. This was before the child molestation accusations. True. But if we factor in what Yoho surely knew about Roy Moore, his endorsement is still alarming.   Read more

Myth vs Fact: Trump’s Tax Proposal

Fond of giving himself high marks for nearly everything, President Trump receives low marks for his recent tax plan. When he introduced the Unified Framework for Fixing our Broken Tax Code in a speech on September 27, 2017, he made several statements about it that are easily refuted. Why would he lie so blatantly while coming out of the gate on such an important part of his agenda? Read more
