The federal week in review:1. Trump fires all Ambassadors and Special Envoys, ordering them out by inauguration day.2. House brings back the Holman rule allowing them to reduce an individual civil service, SES positions, or political appointee's salary to $1, effectively firing them by amendment to any piece of legislation. We now know why they wanted names and positions of people in Energy and State.3. Senate schedules 6 simultaneous hearings on cabinet nominees and triple-books those hearings with Trump's first press conference in months and an ACA budget vote, effectively preventing any concentrated coverage or protest.4. House GOP expressly forbids the Congressional Budget Office from reporting or tracking ANY costs related to the repeal of the ACA.5. Trump continues to throw the intelligence community under the bus to protect Putin, despite the growing mountain of evidence that the Russians deliberately interfered in our election.6. Trump breaks a central campaign promise to make Mexico pay for the wall by asking Congress (in other words, us, the taxpayers) to pay for it.7. Trump threatens Toyota over a new plant that was never coming to the US nor will take jobs out of the US.8. House passes the REINS act, giving them veto power over any rules enacted by any federal agency or department--for example, FDA or EPA bans a drug or pesticide, Congress can overrule based on lobbyists not science. Don't like that endangered species designation, Congress kills it.We - progressive, liberal, libertarian and conservative - need to all wake up to what is actually happening to our beloved country.
He's screwed over carpenters and other workers in his orbit for decades. Anyone who voted for him either doesn't care, or didn't do their homework.
It would be more surprising if they came out and said they had been paid in full.
Surprised that after 3,500 lawsuits for people not getting paid, and 6 bankruptcy's he could get anybody to work for him. The banks in the US sure wouldn't. That's why he had to get his money from Russia. Deadbeat Don.
Of course they are and they will have to keep waiting. My husband's company was stiffed when working on some of the Trump projects here in South Florida. NOTHING wrong with his work, properly permitted, passed final inspections but was not paid 100%.
par for the course from The Donald, Why would these contractors expect anything different? He's been stiffing these types of companies for years!
Does anyone really think Trump will treat the American people better than he treats his contractors? I think not.
Yep. We're going to have a President who thinks screwing people over and not paying for stuff makes him "smart." You can consider any successful thief to be "smart;" that doesn't mean "put them in charge."

Where are all the Trolls?*** Cue Crickets***They've got nothing to say about their King leaving all these companies holding the bag? Of course not. This man is an embarrassment. I feel awful for the American families that are sure to be impacted by this jerk not paying. AGAIN.
