    The Republican tax bill is doomed.
    Republicans may as well ramp up the culture issues
    for the 2018 midterms because they'll have nothing else to run on.
    My suggestion: Instead of a chicken in every pot,
    Republicans can promise "an AR-15 in every home."

    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.


    Here is what people are not noticing of the GOP..they have placed unneeded pressure on passage of this tax bill as if ....it is such a promised legislation to their constituents.

    There has never been a big cry from the GOP rank and file for tax reforms.


    This has always been a tax cut for the rich sold as "meaningful tax cuts for middle class Americans". BULLSHIT.

    Democrats

    Congress: Democrats


    Congress: Job Ratings

    Congress: Job Ratings (1)


    Trump: Job ratings

    Trump: Gallup tracking

    Taxes and other issues:

    You could say it a thousand more times, but it won't matter. They don't care. "Unfair Death Tax" is the name they will always remember.

    The left is angry and bitter. The saddest part of this scenario is that they believe these lies, similar to how they also believe every Trump supporter is a Nazi. Angered and bitter people make a lot of noise and will go to any length to achieve their goals.
