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.

Democrats have been negotiating with Republicans on a bipartisan “stabilization bill” that would include a guarantee that CSR payments continue. But merely guaranteeing those payments is not enough. Ask your MoCs to ensure that the bipartisan bill continues protections for people enrolled in association health plans, that short-term plans stay truly short-term, and that CSR payments continue.
The University of Florida is home to many students who are referred to as DREAMers, individuals who were brought without documentation to the United States at an early age, who have assimilated to U.S. culture and have been educated by U.S. school systems.
CALL TO ACTION: Last weekend, Donald Trump intentionally threw gasoline on the flames of the culture wars when he called for the firing of NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem.

“City of Gainesville Commissioners: The Voters are Ready for This!”
Again this past Thursday, your city commissioners postponed the action of placing a referendum on the March 2018 ballot that would move our city elections from the spring to the fall federal elections cycle. This shift would save the city money and allow more people to participate in our elections.

Mr. Budd expressed concern that only an activist minority supports this change and that it will create more partisanship so he wants to hear more opinions; Mr. Goston expressed concern that this is an attempt to place more white officials on the commission.

Here is the backstory: Because of Congressional unwillingness to pass an immigration plan, specifically one that contains a resolution for dealing with children (commonly referred to as DREAMers) who were brought into the United States by undocumented immigrant parents, then-President Obama issued two directives. One directive in 2012 that provided temporary protection from detainment or deportation to those children (the DACA directive) and another in 2014 that applied to undocumented parents of children born in the US (the DAPA directive).
