Republican Sen. John McCain denounced President Trump's attacks on the media noting "dictators get started by suppressing free press…that without it we would lose our individual liberties." GOP Sen. Rand Paul blasted McCain for his criticism of Trump's approach with the media saying "it's fueled more by personal issues with the president than valid concern, to be taken with a grain of salt as John McCain's the guy advocating for war everywhere."
Would you favor Pittsburgh financing their Affordable Housing Trust Fund by increasing real estate sales taxes only on large commercial properties?
