Is it awful that it makes me smile

Seeing Middle Class and Working Class voters who voted Republican in 2016 completely shocked and pissed to realize their taxes actually went up because of tax bill? Dumbasses- we told ya you were never their target audience. Enjoy paying for Congress repugs Billionaire buddies’ and donors’ 10th yacht. 🙄

1. Nope

The Deplorables deserve everything they get.

Too often they're too dense to realize that their support for Trump has real-life consequences.

Idiots.

2. No, as long as you remember...

that innocent people are being affected, too.

We're all in this together and the Trumplodytes are pulling the rest of us down with themselves.

4. Absolutely.

And would much rather none of this was happening and that the bill had been blocked. That said, those who supported him and the Repugs and are now finding that coming home to roost? Having a hard time working up much sympathy for them.

3. I'm going to pay thousands more this year, but it's almost worth the price.

Not really, but I am enjoying their misery.

5. "One should never

find pleasure in the suffering of another even if the other brought it upon themselves."


Oh, screw it, it makes me smile!!!!!

I do feel pain for those who had it forced on them.

Good luck with that.

16. Yeah, but it is more embarrassing for me.

I lived there for two years ( yeah, only from 8-10 ) and my brother was a German consultant. I also have a German friend and his sister I hang out with a lot. Yeah, so I want to crawl under a rock.

10. It's a great campaign issue handed to us on a platter. Advocate for tax cuts for the middle class,

and tax increases for the multi-millionaires and billionaires.

13. Did their taxes actually go up? Or was their withholding lowered unrealistically?

Either would create a nasty surprise when doing taxes.

15. In a way, both...

Many deductions were eliminated or reduced, and it looks like withholding was decreased, too.

Bottom line, more taxes due come end of year.
