GOP Senate adds last-second provision to guarantee Americans NEVER benefit from their tax scheme
By Dartagnan

"The monstrous Republican tax giveaway to corporations which they intend to vote on next week just got immeasurably worse for ordinary Americans, that is, those without an “Inc.” or “LLC” after their names."
"Most of us who have been watching the transmogrification of a bill that was falsely hyped as providing “tax relief” to the middle class already know it does nothing of the sort. It contains nothing of substantive benefit that won’t be wiped out by higher health care premiums and the elimination of critical deductions that most Americans have come to expect when they do their taxes."
"But even this betrayal of American citizens wasn’t enough for the party of corporate greed. While the tax bill has been almost uniformly judged as an abomination that will explode the deficit, with its real end purpose to bolster new calls for huge cuts in Medicare and Social Security, the GOP still wasn’t satisfied. If, by chance, the predicted deficit-devastation of such a massive transfer of wealth to corporations (who have no intention of doing anything but pocketing the profits being handed to them for the purchase of newer and bigger yachts) somehow doesn’t manifest itself, then Republicans had to ensure ordinary, working Americans would never, ever enjoy the windfall or benefits from the revenue being raised."
"Call them. Tell them this attack on American citizens—because that’s exactly what it is—will not be forgotten in 2018. No matter how many stupid tweets we’re forced to endure."

The Republican Tax Bill has turned into an American horror story! Can you American voters now see what electing Republicans to the White House and to Congress means for you? Can you? You should be stark raving mad about what they are trying to do to you so underhandedly.

You need to call your Senators and Representative and tell them that if they vote for this travesty of a tax bill you will vote AGAINST them next time around! GUARANTEED!

Those bastards.

Am thinking Daily Kos is really on to something this time!!!


Go KOS!!!
You bet! They are on to something big! That's why right-wingers are so deathly afraid of them and try to discredit their news reports and stories. But they most often include excellent links to support what they are saying!

Be sure to pass this report on to others!!

In other words there would be 9 years to amend the tax bill. So you think no president or congress will make needed correction in that time. More Daily KOS democrat talking points

Have Republicans passed a Healthcare Bill? Have they built that egregious wall? So yes, it will more than likely take a Democratic President and Congress to pass a WORKABLE Tax Bill with parity for all not just a select few, the rich.

You mean you want democrats to raise taxes because democrats never lower taxes. If you want a tax cut you better hope the GOP gets something passed

I do not care what they can amend. It shows what the Republicans have become.

And,I am not mocking,Prag. I am dead serious. If you had any sense you would be,too. The whole bill is a giveaway and you think it is funny.

The Senate version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made the GOP’s relative indifference to middle-class tax relief especially stark. In order to comply with arcane budget rules, Mitch McConnell’s caucus had to write a bill that wouldn’t add to the deficit after 2027. The upper chamber solved this puzzle by phasing out most of their bill’s middle-class tax cuts in 2026, while making corporate tax cuts — and provisions that raised taxes on a broad swathe of the middle class — permanent.
In a section titled “Revenue-Dependent Repeals,” the Senate plan would prevent some tax hikes on businesses from going into effect in 2026 if tax revenue hit a certain “trigger” level. In total, businesses would get nearly $120 billion more in breaks in 2026 and 2027 if the trigger goes into effect.
I can see why no Republican would be upset by those two paragraphs, After all, it is the destiny of the working and middle class to support and praise the 1% in perpetuity.
