    Right, wage slaves need a raise. Republicans figure a way to give them a raise without it coming out of the employer's profits. At he same time employers get a tax cut.

    All hail Trump - the most excellent god of the sort of free market.

    They need to repeal this huge tax cut for the 1% first.

    edit:
    Because we already know that is going to add trillions to the deficit.(unless you think trickle down is going to cover it, like it has never done in the past)

    Nah, I think it's very possible that the Repubs will suffer a "SHELLACKING" in the mid terms just like the Dems did in 2010.

    Nope, wouldn't surprise me at all.

    But, why would Putin allow America to expel so many of their "diplomats"?

    Why oh why would he allow that?

    Yes, Thor. Here's the question: Why the FUCK would we want that? WHY would we WANT another housing bust? Why on EARTH? Given how much PAIN we went through with the last one?

    Can you riddle us that?

    Maybe I am wrong, but its not so much what we necessarily want but due to demographics and such, its what we get. People werent pleased with suburban sprawl back in the 60s and 70s either and sounded the alarm but it happened. Now with tons of homes from the boomers, its a passing of the guard to the next generations who are trying to get in the game. I do think the real hurt comes in the next 20-30 years as the boomers are gone and the millenials dont have nearly as many kids. What will we do with all these leftover McMansions?

    OK, actually it's only some crazy Trump Haters who believe that.

    But, for the sake of argument, I'll play along.

    What about the other 20 or so other countries that are kicking the Russkies out?

    Are they ALL giving Putey Poot Poot what he wants?

    The top 1% weren't affected that much by this tax reform package. A lot of it Dems said they wanted when Obama was in office, including Obama.

    Should they repeal Obama's tax cuts as well?

    What spending needs to be cut?
