A Senate GOP Meeting (Cartoon) (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 12/05/17 4:44 am)

    JE comments:  Can you be "developing" after you've already developed?  I have no answer, but Tor Guimaraes raises a bigger question of the Trump economic scheme:  are entitlements slated for the chopping block?  Senator Marco Rubio made this prediction a few days ago:
