Trump's Economy Was Plummeting Even Before the Pandemic | DCReport.org

Trump's Economy Was Plummeting Even Before the Pandemic | DCReport.org

DonateDavid Cay JohnstonThere’s fresh evidence that the robust economy Donald Trump inherited from Barack Obama was faltering before the pandemic.State personal consumption spending growth slowed sharply in 2019 compared to the year before, the federal Bureau of Economic Analysis reported Thursday morning. The growth rate plummeted by a fifth.Personal expenditures grew in 2019 but by only 3.9%, down from 4.9% in the previous year.Counting on Trump to sign a new relief package would be like trusting that he actually knows how to improve the economy for all Americans, not just the already...

Trump Strong-Arms Georgia's Top Election Official | DCReport.org

Trump Strong-Arms Georgia's Top Election Official | DCReport.org

DonateTerry H. SchwadronDid Donald Trump just commit another violation of federal law by threatening the Georgia secretary of state to find votes for him by recalculating the November election results or face vague criminal charges himself?The Washington Post obtained and published the audiotape of the call; the key excerpts , the full transcript can be found . The Post quoted election experts who noted that the call was beyond inappropriate and immoral and verged on violations of state and federal law.“I just want to find 11,870 votes,” one vote more than the Joe Biden majority in the...

ES&S Voting Systems: A Friend To Republicans | DCReport.org

DonateAlison GreeneAfter initially focusing on the surprisingly lopsided results of the senatorial election in Kentucky, broadened our scope to look at the electronic vote-counting software and electronic voting systems that we rely on to tally our votes. This prompted us to raise questions about Electronic Systems & Software (ES&S), America’s largest voting machine company. What we found was a revolving door between government officials and ES&S.Voting results in three states that saw surprising majorities by vulnerable incumbent Republican senators—Maine, North Carolina and South...

Trump Land: Just Another Whacky Weekend | DCReport.org

DonateTerry H. SchwadronEven for Donald Trump and the Republican Tabernacle Choir of the Senate, this weekend was an all-star level of crazy-making. The White House again ignored a pandemic killing 3,000 Americans a day, widespread misery and an attack on the nation while discussing the possibility of martial law over Trump’s election loss.What saved it was the last-minute, roller-coaster deal in the Congress for a coronavirus aid bill, as ugly a compromise as possible, but an agreement nevertheless. Stand by for the conflicting credits and new discoveries about what actually passes today...

CEOs Don't Earn the Millions They're Paid | DCReport.org

CEOs Don't Earn the Millions They're Paid | DCReport.org

DonateDean BakerA new shows that the top five executives of major corporations pocketed 15 to 19 cents of every dollar their companies gained from two recent tax cuts. The paper, by Eric Ohrn at Grinnell College, should be a really big deal.The basic point is CEOs and other top executives rip off their companies. The officers are not worth the $20 million or more that many of them pocket each year.Again, this is not a moral judgment about their value to society. It is a simple dollars-and-cents calculation about how much money they produce for shareholders. The piece suggests that it is...
