One of the stories still dominating the news is the last push by the Republican Party to steal $billions from poor and middle classes and give it billionaires and their giant corporations. It just passed out of the Senate Finance Committee a few minutes ago, and it is now free for a final vote in the Senate, perhaps on Thursday. If this passes, you’re going to need a chastity belt for your butt. Paul Krugman calls it a tax scam.

Nothing to add … except call, write, show up at your Senators, especially any Republicans up for reelection.

Adding in the ACA language to destroy affordable health insurance in Alaska, Maine and elsewhere and the triggers to Medicare and Medicaid cuts buried along with fetal personhood, Alaska off-shore oil drilling and funky structure on pass through income that doesn't really help small businesses and how many poor and middleclass will pay higher taxes each year 2019 thru 2027 given its structure...and how it explodes the deficit, how ceos agree there tax cuts will not increase worker pay or investments (contrary to WH sales pitch)...hopefully the trade-offs for votes (sounds like at most 50 right now) will destroy it...

Robbing and they would like to wear Hoods if they could..........the fact that so many people will vote for the GOP is so awful to me.

Paul Krugman is spot on, so is Chris Hayes and his guests and so is every article I’ve heard and every news comment I’ve seen on the subject: these This Tax Reform, for once aptly called the Cut Cut Cut bill by Drumpf, is a scam and will lead America into its next recession. And since America hasn’t been isolated enough by Drumpf from the rest of the world, we’re all going into a recession. And that in a time when ALL need to invest in durable green energy and stop this planet from melting down.

The GOP knows that if they fail to pass this tax reform before the end of the year, they’ll have failed their masters and not made the plutocrat coup of 2017 come to fruition. They know their punishment will be harsh, and their party’s existence is imperiled, so they’ll do everything in their power to have all their senators vote “Yes” on this bill. This could be the moment those senators who are on their way out to have their moment of glory like McCain had with Drumpfcare. But that needs backbone and too little time to grow one in so…

If it passes there will be many petitions to sign and I hope many protests to go to as well. :-(
