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.

Sandy Parker, an Indivisible Gainesville member was shocked by some of Rep. Ted Yoho’s statements at recent Town Halls. So, he did some investigation and found out that there are many times when the things that Yoho has said boggles the mind. Here are the Top Ten Ted Yoho moments.
1) Ted floats the nutty idea that citizens should be allowed access to the same weaponry as the military to make it a fair fight when the government needs to be overthrown. Stick around for the weird lottery and poison analogy. Read more
People attending Monday’s town hall hosted by Representative Yoho expected many things: he would endorse tax cuts, discuss Trump’s proposed budget, and speak about repealing the Affordable Care Act. What attendees did not expect was for the congressman to admit that he was wrong. Read more
