There’s a train coming down the track, a gravy train, and it’s filled with holiday treats for the Trumps, the Kochs, the Mercers, the Adelsons and lots of other GOP billionaires. For you, me and over 90 percent of Americans it’s like inserting my artificial leg in your southern exposure. Only Republicans can stop it, so here is a preview of which ones might.

I'm afraid the only ones that can stop it are we the people aka the 99%, but it will have to be in the future....let us hope I am wrong and some of these suggestions work to stop it now

Well, none of them is mine, nor am I on any of their mailing lists. So I guess I'll just keep on signing the generalized letters and petitions which I have been getting notice of.

WE THE PEOPLE are the ones who can derail this gravy train! Contact your Senators and keep bugging them. Remind those reps who voted for it that they are up for re-election next year, and they had better listen to the majority of their voters. Keep signing petitions, sending messages and postcards - and remember to vote! That is the most important thing we can do, as that could be the last chance we have to turn our country around - by legal, peaceful means anyway.

I got an e-mail from GOP Rep. Bilks, in Florida, where I have a property. He waxed POUD of his idiot vote for the house version. Nelson will vote with the Dems, Rubio, like Bilrakis, is a lost cause.

Those who have selected the path of greed have nil compassion for the needs, survival and zilch compassion for their happiness. That is how the greedy prosper, by being focused on personal gain, and having a 'tough luck' attitude towards the more wholesome of the species who prefers to be of a generous nature and have an inclusionary perception of what being wealthy should mean. The DINOSAUR brains of survival trample upon flesh and bones of those beneath them. Our hope is that the voices and cries of those who suffer will in time - awaken the monsters of destruction upon the innocent and find solutions to our economic system which supports the best in ourselves. Otherwise, those DINOSAUR thinkers just keep on stepping all over the masses without a glance back at the poor souls who fought to live in peace, on good terms, and with good-will among our fellow beings. (it's all been said before, but we can't stop repeating the message until the meaning sinks in)

Fortunately, my senators are Dems and will vote against this bill. However, we still don't have enough of the GOP who can't get it through their heads that giving more money to the rich never works for the working class. Even the rich admit they won't use the extra money to hire or improve what they have, they will just keep it. If they won't believe the people they want the money for, then they aren't going to believe anyone else. Thanks for the post, TomCat.

Right Sheila, - trickle down is actually fickle promises. Even if the trickle happens, the drip is exceedingly slow and tedious, seldom helping those who need it now.
