At what point does corporate America start disinvesting in the Republican party?

Not any time soon seems to be the answer. Having rushed a tax bill through the Senate that will deliver tens of billions in tax cuts to rich people and corporations …,

Why should it bother the average business owner if the Republicans want to put an Islamophobe into the Senate to represent Alabama?      Continue reading

Donald Trump and Jerusalem: ‘I Don’t See Potential Upsides’
