Tax reform
« on: December 20, 2017, 03:42:44 AM »
Senate passes the conference bill, 51 - 48.  The House has to revote, but that's really just a formality now

my one big critique about this is that they did a very poor job explaining this bill. true it`s going through but i do not recall very little talk about it as an incentive to bring overseas money to the states. I hear zero mention about this from trump but that was his campaign promise.

This is how the democrats were able to dominate the news at the moment.

Agreed, they could have done a better job at explaining all the positives to this reform, while also portraying all the mantra about this is "only" a tax cut for rich folks, as the lie that it truly is....but....the media did their job quite well in paint-brushing the polling landscape with all the emotional colors that the Dems kept pushing.

It sucks and will add more to the deficit that Obama did.

Trump is a lying, corrupt, crooked motherfucker who got a HUGE BRIBE for claiming he is moving our embassy.

Nothing's going to come close to Obama's deficit making. 

What was it that Obama was claiming to try and rationalize his abysmal economy, under his policies, such as GDP of less than 2%, when historically a good economic indicator was one of over 3%?.... Oh yea, ""It's the new normal".  Well, lookee there, GDP not above 3, but above 4% under Trump's policies, demonstrating it wasn't a "new normal", but simply hyper-leftist policies as the anchor
