Greedy Republicans Are Seriously Going For A Second Round Of Billionaire Tax Cuts



Republicans know their days controlling Congress are numbered (235 days to the midterms as of this writing). With a string of special elections loses turning into a noose, they can clearly see the writing on the wall. So as their final act as the party in power, they're going on one last looting spree:

“We're actually going for a phase two which will help — in addition to middle class, it will help companies and it's going to be something I think very special,” Trump said in Missouri. “Kevin Brady is working on it with me, Congress is working, the Senate's working.”

Brady (R-Tex.), the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, confirmed another tax-cut bill was in the works.

“We think even more can be done,” he gushed on Fox Business Network.

Of course more can be done. There's still non-rich people that can afford to feed themselves. A few more tax cuts should crash the economy and take care of that. And that's really what we're looking at here: A looting spree designed to sabotage the economy once theGOP is out of power.

1. republicans are crippling America

They are refusing to defend America against the hostile cyber attacks of russia on our elections, they are boosting polluting climate chaos coal over solar and wind leading to instability, they are making America a laughing stock around the world with their Draft & Responsibility Dodging sexual bafoonery & general golf-goof-off chicanery, and they are fattening the fatcats while screwing regular Americans with their republican Tax Cuts for the Wealthy.

Deplorable, morally corrupt republicans are weakening America.

2. Of course. They planned many tax and regulation cuts

for the wealthy over the next 3 years, a lot more than just this.

As for taking more than a generation to repair, depends on us, doesn't it? The Germans rebuilt Germany in that time after WWII.

It's not all bad, just as the Great Depression's forcing change wasn't all bad. Destruction is a chance for rebuilding with improvement over old. The inherent stability of our existing systems is very necessary and good, but we have new knowledge we need to incorporate into our existing systems and new problems we must address. This will be a chance to do that right.

4. Permanent tax cuts for the wealthy, temporary tax cuts for all the working class republican cogs.

5. It's more that 235 days.

The election is November 6, 2018, but the new Congress will not convene until January 2, 2019. I shudder to think what sort of self-protection the Republicans will try to commit before the Blue Tsunami takes over.

6. Susan Sarandon is getting her chaos.

Not that her rich ass gives a shit. She will have elegant meals and an elaborate roof over her head. I can promise you that if republicans pass the second round of tax cuts, Social Security and Medicare will see cuts under the gise of "saving" them.
