    It’s funny that Trump Disciples are not even claiming that this tax ‘reform’ is anything but a massive transfer of wealth to the already rich.

    .

    But I guess it’s worth it to them because it cuts Medicare and Medicaid and will help in the sabotage of Obamacare, all resulting in eliminating health care for thousands and thousands of people.

    And it will defund Planned Parenthood, which will eliminate health care for many poor women, another bonus.

    .

    Many of the Trump Disciples who are not rich enough will also pay higher income taxes, but I guess it’s a small price to pay for the other bonuses.

    It continues to astonish that the Trump Disciples believe that increased wealth inequality is a good thing — and that somehow means that Trump is ‘on their side’.

    Haven’t critics long complained about capitalists being “vampires”?, – swigging the lifeblood of lower-level workers and bourgeoise sectors, as well as of colonized places and other types of foreign economies?

    VAMPIRES – {rhyme}

    Fat Cats grow fat not by eating themSelves; …

    … but by dining on Others from their pantries’ shelves,

    and by eating sweet treats for which Wall Street delves. -

    - And assisted by the prez and the legislature,

    they denature the old woman Mother Nature.

    After all, they’re the model for Marx’s portraiture

    of Capitalism’s abduction

    of economic production.

    Will the GOPig tax scam create jobs? Few if any. Will it raise wages? If history is any guide, nope. Will you or I see any reduction in our taxes and/or overall expenses? Dream on. Will it make it easier to maintain and upgrade our obsolescent infrastructure? Ha! Will it balloon the deficit? For sure.

    One thing that almost all economists, and anyone with any sense, agree on is that in prosperous times (Thanks, Obama!), it is more than wise to reduce the deficit, not increase it. The proposed tax scam is nothing more than a destructive sop to those who own the Republicans. In the long run it will benefit no one, and harm everyone, including the wealthy.

    Revenge policies seems to be a direct result of our self-serving, mutually exclusive governing, incompetent but greedy, two opposing party system … and it continues to escalate.

    Republicans want all of your tax dollars. No government services for you.

    The .1% will enjoy a few billion more while programs are cut for the poor, taxes are raised for the middle class and our children get a bill to pay. All of this so more money can go off shore, more factories can pollute and automate. More people will be laid off, and the divide between the haves and the have-nots will increase.

    This is what Republicans have been voting for, steal from the poor to give to the rich in some Dennis Moore-ism scheme to ensure everyone suffers for not being a white male christian. even if the white male christians have to suffer.

    Under Congressional rules, SOME of the tax cuts are required to expire after 10 years. Your choices are: (A) the tax breaks for actual human beings go away OR (B) the ones for corporations go away. Any guesses which approach Congress is taking?

    Imagine the standard cliche’ of a visitor from another planet trying to understand us, and in this case we try to explain our tax system. It would not go well:

    “You see, we tax EARNED income at a much higher rate than UN-earned income.”

    “Bloople veeple blorp blorp WHAT THE HELL THAT’S INSANE!”

    White male blue collar workers should be aware that they are going to suffer even more come the new year. The White House is decided that there is too much scamming going on in the welfare program. The fact of the matter is that 44% of welfare is paid out to white male blue collar workers. So when they get cut from the program they get to blame it on….. Wait for it….. POTUS….. Because POTUS thinks when he cuts all that scamming, he’s going to eliminate all of the black blue collar workers from collecting welfare checks. He doesn’t want all of those minorities getting all that free money. For help with things like food, housing, clothing, and medical bills. Doesn’t he know that his voter base is in there, too?

    You can believe the foolishness about the 39.6% tax rate if you really prefer ignorance. American corporations presently pay 20-22%. Those that pay more should fire 1 their tax attorneys, 2 the pimps they pay off in Congress.
