The Senate bill will kill Obamacare, taking health insurance from 34 Million Americans who will go back to using the ER as their primary care physician.

 

The House bill allows tax exempt organizations to become politically active.

 

Both bills give 80% of the benefits (reduction in acutal taxes paid) to the top 10%.

 

Both bills reduce Government Revenues by $100Billion each year IF they absurd projections for economic growth actuall could happen. A more realistic estimate of the revenue loss is over $200Billion.

 

The loss in Federal Revenues will require massive cuts to Medicare and every other discretionary program at the Federal level. Either States will need to increase their taxes or the services provided by those descimated Federal programs will be lost for the 99%.

 

As for job creation, a meeting of CEOs was asked what they would do with the windfall from the Republican Corporate tax cut, and 10% said "invest to create more jobs" while 90% said "buy back outstanding stock" which greatly increases the value of the executives stock options and tightens their control over the Corporation. Guess which will happen if either Republican bill becomes law.

The Winners and losers in the GOP tax plan

Everybody, except Trump Cult Members and Trump Lovers, understand this is not a middle class tax cut. This is a bill written for donors which:

 

  • is a gold mine for corporations
  • eliminates several middle class tax cuts
  • adds as much as $2 Trillion to the deficit
  • is a gold mine for rich people like the President who should make more than One Billion dollars if the law passes

No time to read them?? As a Liberal/Democrat she should know you have to pass a bill before reading it. Hint-Obamacare


Hint, the ACA took over a year to write and pass and Congress held open and televised committee meetings.  BIGGER HINT, the GOP is a fraud.


Hint - "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it".


Sadly the far right Reb. will not understand it after it is passed and they are paying the higher taxes at the State, Local, Fed level. They will think they got a tax reduction.


That will only happen in the bluest states like California, NY, Ct, NJ, etc and the Democrats know this which is why they were against lower federal income taxes. This will end the red states subsidizing the blue states.


You prove what I have been saying about the far right all along. This tax bill is designed to hurt the all the people living in States who did not vote for Trump. Yes that is what the far right does just like Hitler did in Germany, and Trump has been preaching he will do all along. Lock her up, High Taxes if you oppose him, Lock up the press who tell the truth about him, Sue or hurt the women who he abused. Our far right wing Reb plan is now exposed by its followers. By the way my State has a Reb. Governor and my state is going to have to raise taxes to cover the losses it will suffer from the Trump, far right Reb. tax bill.

So in denial or so uninformed. Some choose to believe the lying Washington Republicans and ignore all independent studies.


While SOME look to "the view" for their news and don't consider logic.

Warning overly medicated.

 

But, despite passage of the tax bill, don’t these wondrous people still need to finish writing the darned thing to combine House and Senate bills into one cohesive😂 package.

 

Preferably one NOT written entirely by lobbyists.

 

Or are the pain med’s still clouding my brain, I really don’t think I missed that many days of Junior High School Civics.

 

Correct me If Wrong, please.

can’t this piece of expletives still fail, if enough R’s get complaints and calls.
