  7. Attacks on teachers, colleges, and public education.
  8. Indifference to disaster in Puerto Rico.
  9. Bashing of responsible news media.
  10. Renewed reliance on voodoo economic ideas.
  11. Increased use of scientific gerrymandering.
  12. Increased hostility towards environmental protection.
  13. Backwards on Mideast peace prospects.
  14. Cruel actions targeting immigrants.
  15. Little effort to protect elections from foreign interference.
  16. No progress on control of firearms in spite of increasing domestic violence.
  17. Neo-Nazi’s, white supremacists, and KKK resurgent.
  18. Loss of important health care benefits.
  19. Unwise repeal of necessary regulations.
