1. Don't worry, they'll fix it later, before it really hurts anybody...

In case you didn't grab the intent:

2. $1.4 is the key to them

That allows them, as I understand it, to use reconciliation instead of needing 60 votes.

3. We are defininately fighting a class war.

And the GOP manages to get low-mid income idiots to help fight their battles for them—along with those boneheads who have a million dollars in the bank, and pretend to be in the 1%. The latter group is in for a rude awakening.

8. We take from the Poor and keep it.....



is the mantra of the GOP then as it is now.

Those that voted for Trump and still support him, will be shocked as to how they will be hurt the most.

12. But, Earl, they aren't PAYING for the tax cuts. They are borrowing $1.4 trillion.

And the taxpayers who don't get cuts (=the middle class) will have to pay back that money. So it transfers that $1.4 trillion obligation from wealthy taxpayers to working class taxpayers.

They will claim the tax breaks for the wealthy will create jobs. I have never heard of any hiring manager at a multi-billion dollar corporation say, "Hey, we need to hire more people because our CEO got a bigger tax refund." They'd get fired for suggesting something that stupid.
