    The Republicans are in charge, and we promised to fix it, and we have to go fix it, he said. If we dont fix it, then the American people are entitled to say, Well, you know, howd you people make it through the birth canal, for Gods sakes? And I dont blame them. They ought to be asking that question.
    Weve got to go pass this bill, he added. Id rather drink weed killer than not pass this bill.

    give a huge tax break to the rich, while only some middle class folks may benefit, while getting rid of local and state tax deductions. A bunch of bad ideas given how Republican's got thumped last night. That's why this particular quote. It perfectly describes the Republican's attitude. Which is being so desperate to put a "win" on the table they're willing to piss voters off in the process (as long as they keep the big donors happy). Well that, plus it's a hell of a thing to read first thing in the morning.

    You're welcome.
    I heard Kennedy yesterday. He knows they are gone because they have done nothing. He might want to get out that weed killer. It will come in handy.

    Republicans are great at fuzzy math. They can not even count how many will vote for their disastrous policies in the Senate.

    The bill contains a cut for pass-through firms to 25% down to 40% and ends the alternative minimum tax. It's a huge tax break for the rich. That's going to be millions for some people.

    Anyway, this boondoggle is likely dead, they might be able to get some bipartisan fixes passed but that well is also kinda poisoned after all the work that was put in to Alexander-Murray only to have the president unilaterally kill it. Tuesday's election leaves blue state Republicans scared shitless, and they alone decide whether there's a working majority or not. They're not going to pass SALT deduction repeal, and probably not mortgage deduction repeal, and without that the bill runs smack into the deficit ceiling of $1.5 trillion.

    The 2018 election is now a choice between a Republican coalition that can't functionally get anything done, and a Democratic-led one that also will not get anything done (because Trump will veto everything they pass out of pique if nothing else) but will at least be able to deny funding for Trump's worst excesses and investigate him freely.

    It's like they instantly shit themselves, then spend the rest of the time on the thread trying to wipe their asses.

    All you said was there was no huge tax break for the rich. How is that "addressing" the OP's comments.

    What part of the proposed tax break is not real?
