Fake Deadlines!

They’re planning on passing this flaming turd on Wednesday afternoon. Their self-imposed and totally artificial deadline of giving Trump a multi-million dollar Christmas present at our expense prevents us, the losers in this game, from getting a complete idea of what’s in store for us. The most important bill we have, that will actually kill people – some of the 13 million who will lose their health insurance as a result of removing the ACA mandate and some who depend on Medicaid and other programs, is still cloaked in secrecy.

They won’t wait for Doug Jones, unlike the courtesy paid to them by Democrats who held off a health care reform vote for the newly elected Scott Brown. (Every good turn done to Mitch McConnell reminds on of the Scorpion and the Turtle story.)

Their game is incredibly cruel and corrupt.


Fake Compromise!

This is all we know so far. They’ve just shuffled the goodies for the rich people’s stockings around a little.

  • 37% top individual rate
  • 21% top corporate rate starting 2018
  • $10,000 cap on State and Local Tax deduction
  • 20% deduction for “pass-through” corps
  • Ends corporate AMT, keeps for individuals over $1 million
  • Double estate tax exemption
  • Repeals individual health insurance mandate (will d
  • Raises repatriation rates from Senate bill (likely 8% for non-liquid funds, 15% for cash)
  • Keeps grad student deduction
  • Keeps medical expense deduction at 7.5% the next two years
  • Allows drilling in ANWR
  • It does NOT include the dark-money-from-churches language because all parts of the bill must have a budgetary effect to prevent opening the process up to Democratic filibuster. Burn!

Real Pain.

The tax cuts for the wealthy will be paid for by us. No tax “cut” that they can give will make up for the losses we’ll suffer.
