A direct transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich that explodes the deficit more than any social program could hope to built on a piece of legislation that was rushed so hard the last part was handwritten. Fucks sake!

With Trump being largely unfavorable, and the GOP failing to pass a very unpopular healthcare reform and now trying to pass a very unpopular tax reform. I'm expecting a trouncing of the GOP next year.

Don't. People are idiots. They've demonstrated this before and they're going to demonstrate it again. They'll vote for anyone with an R in their name if it means making "dem durn fuckin' libtards" mad.

Don't expect good things out of this. It's not going to happen.

It's darkly ironic that a government elected on nativist/xenophobic/ultra nationalist sentiment just sold their country down the river to a bunch of multinational corporations that clearly don't give a single fuck about them!

Will a trillion dollar debt and fatter billionaires MAGA? Not bloody likely!

I think the again time he's referring to is the 1930s. Remember that time when people were really rich and wealthy and then the economy tanked in one of the most devastating financial crisis the world has ever seen? Well I'm Donald Trump and I'm gonna get us back to that time!

I think the next slogan the dems should run on in the 2020 presidential election is Make America Great Again. Just to really troll Trump.

Oh, and now Mueller has issued a subpoena to Deutsche Bank for Trump's financial records.

And Trump is freaking the fuck out.

Trump: Himmwer! HIMMWER! I DON'T WANT MULLER GOING ANY FURTHER!! WAAAH

Pence: For one, my name is Mike Pence, not Himmler. And two, compose yourself with a little decency and grace, will you?

Trump: WAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Yeah, but it also came out that Pence tried to get Trump kicked off the GOP ticket after the Access Hollywood tape came out. I bet Trump's trying to find any means he can to get Pence to quit since he'd see that as a personal betrayal.

Serial sexual harasser Donald Trump thought he'd be Time's Person of the Year. Instead, it's all the people who came forward about being sexually harassed.

Yeah, uhm...if it gets out that Russia basically bought him, wouldn't that mean that Trump, at the very least, would be guilty of actual, literal treason?  If he is, he will certainly be remembered.  Right alongside the likes of Nixon, except he'd be the first President to ever be both impeached and subsequently put to death (I believe treason still carries the death penalty) for treason.

That's not counting anyone who might've colluded with the whole ordeal.

https://slate.com/business/2017/12/senate-republicans-may-have-made-a-usd260-billion-mistake-in-their-tax-bill.html

...Ooops.

TL;DR by someone:
Quote
Took me a while to get my head around what has happened, but what I understand is: They lowered the corporate rate to 20% and removed the AMT. Then at the last minute the AMT goes back in, but instead of being inserted at a rate lower than the corporate tax rate (which is what it is supposed to be because it is an alternative minimum rate) it was left at its old rate, which happens to be 20%, exactly the same as the new actual corporate tax rate.

So the "alternative minimum" rate is now just "the rate" - which is a huge blow to companies which spend a lot of time and effort trying to pay the AMT and not the usual rate of corporate tax.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

It's getting to be the natural order of things, isn't it? Fish swim, birds fly, grass grows, and Trump makes really bad decisions.
I also pissed in an old woman's sauce pan when I was a child. Have you?
