After months of negotiations, false starts, and several disturbances  — Republicans have cast their final vote in approval of the long-awaited tax bill.

The House officially passed the GOP’s sweeping tax reform bill.

The Republican legislation passed on a 224-to-201 vote along party lines Wednesday.

The bill cuts the corporate tax rate to 21-percent, lowers seven individual tax brackets, and repeals the Obamacare mandate.

It will now head to the president’s desk for his signature, delivering on his promise to bring tax cuts to Americans by Christmas.

The historic tax cuts also mark the first big legislative success for the Trump Administration.

The new law will also simplify the tax code itself.

President Trump calls the tax reform vote a “historic victory.”

During Wednesday’s cabinet meeting at the White House today, he said the bill will provide a “tremendous amount of relief for the middle class,” including making farms and certain small businesses exempt from the estate tax.

He thanked house speaker Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell for their leadership on the bill, calling it a Christmas gift for hard-working Americans.

President Trump has said infrastructure will be the next item on the GOP’s agenda.

    Good day to be an American Conservative…another bad day for the Demos. MAGA!!!! Now, build that wall!!!!

  • aldoro

    I didn’t see ANYTHING about the repeal of obama’s DEATH TAX”

  • Rufus Firefly

    By cutting medicare, social security, etc

    • Andrew Moore8

      By putting your lazy azzss back to work…..

  • Scotty

    I have a response for you; you’re blocked troll.

  • nfcapitalist

    Who voted against this Bill besides 100 % of the goose stepping communist party, I mean?

  • Glenda Hammer

    Finally something to look forward to. Last year I got back less than 2 hundred dollars, this year I’ll get back between 2 and 3 thousand dollars thanks to this tax bill passing.
    When was the last time working class Americans had anything to look forward to, especially at tax time? Everything was set up to help the wealthiest.
    All we’ve ever done is pay the bills for the governments massive debts.

  • Anton Percival VIII

    A very good point, one that is often overlooked.

  • All American

    Also “Thank you VP Pence for staying to cast your vote🇺🇸“

    • Rufus Firefly

      What a laugh that was. He used that as an excuse to avoid his Middle East trip, where he would have been shunned.

      With McCain at home, there is no way that the vote could have been tied. Pence lies just like Trump.

  • michaelparsons

    I’ll bet Chuckie Poo’s crying now.

    • Brad

      And of course pelosi

      • internettoughguy

        “Chuckie Poo” and Pelosi have nothing to cry about. The parents of the children who’re going to lose their health insurance might be a different story.

  • MeMyself&I

    I and the rest reading all this know I am right. All you spew is blather. Nothing of substance. Fact. Deal with your mental disorder.

  • PatrickJ

    Went over to my neighbor’s and watched the victory speech at the White House. Most of it was predictable of course, but that’s okay. It was a big win for the President and when that happens, you need to celebrate a little. Very emotional speech by Orrin Hatch of Utah.

  • John Alexander

    Thank You Mr President!
    You are making America Great Again! Despite all your opposition Thank You for your great work!

  • WSWSapphire

    I don’t see his comments anymore, but I sure laugh at some of the replies. I can only imagine what mush the pest must have put out!

  • WSWSapphire

    We’ll take our golden opportunities one at a time, thank you. Now why don’t you stop worrying about us & go help elsewhere.

  • WSWSapphire

    No, cuz he’ll get rid of it soon enough. Now how long did it take your boy to create that crap & then implement it? You have a short memory. All those people not being able to use O’s stupid online site. O is incompetent, among other worse things. He’s good at deep corruption, which is not a compliment.

  • mark abby

    Woo hoo!!!

  • Living in the Times

    Rosie O’Donnell offered the GOP senators $2 Million to vote against the tax bill. Is that not bribery?????

    • Rufus Firefly

      Are campaign contributions bribery? or just free speech?

      • Living in the Times

        This was not a campaign contribution. She offered specific GOP members the money to vote against the bill. Google the story. It is on Fox for starters.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Of course it was a campaign contribution. Just like the ones from hedge fund managers.

          • Living in the Times

            Ok…I see what you did there! Yes, I am sure they will find a diversion if questioned about any legality of the pledge.

          • MeMyself&I

            Believe me…. What you just said went way over it’s head.

          • Living in the Times

            Of course it was NOT a campaign contribution! She went on Twitter and offered two separate GOP members to vote no and said she would pay them each $2 million dollars to make that vote. How is that campaign related?????? She may call it that to avoid charges, but it is what it is!

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            I’d take the money first- then vote yes- then donate it to St. Judes. Let her whine maybe that head will expode!

          • Andrew Moore8

            Yup, you can call a turd almond rocha if you want…but at the end of the day it’s still a turd.

      • Brad

        Sack it, your liberals lost and is going to lose. You’re more than welcome to join the winning team once you obtain your citizenship.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Did you say something?

    • WSWSapphire

      I don’t know much about those things, but Rosie seems to be losing it… in more ways than one.

    • Brad

      Rosie – What is she still doing in the United States, didn’t she make the promise if our President was elected she was going to leave???
      I’d gladly throw her(it) in the back of a dump truck and dump in Mexico. Only risk, is being charged with dumping hazardous waste. Yea Rosie, we’re talking about you and your liberal low life’s!!!

      • Living in the Times

        Unfortunately, she and all of Hollyweird who made the bogus claim to defect are still with us. Sigh

      • nfcapitalist

        Bet she’d be popular in Mogadishu… not so much in Iran.

  • Richard McMeekin

    Short verse:

    Glory glory hallelujah don’t let this tax reform fool ya!
    If the Democrats get a majority, they’ll stick it to ya!
    If Our Republican majority remains intact, made of steel,
    After years of Trump’s tax relief It’s a law Dems won’t dare repeal

    OK I am not a poet, I know it! But you and I must get out the vote and ensure we keep conservatives in power in the House and Senate. Amen? A M E N!!!!!!!

    • Living in the Times

      And all the people said…Amen!

  • Bud W

    Winning!

  • PatrickJ

    And so it begins, the criticism I mean.

    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Republicans will “rue the day” they passed the tax overhaul.

    “Given the bill’s substance, it’s no surprise they’re in such a rush.
    Eleventh-hour backroom deals have managed to only make their bill even
    worse. They don’t want people — folks — they don’t want to discuss it,
    they don’t want to have it — have some light shed on it. They don’t want
    anyone to know what’s in it because it is so, so bad. And the public
    knows it,” Schumer said.

    Like Obamacare, Chuckie? We have to pass this bill so we can see what’s in it?

    • WSWSapphire

      Sounds like they’re really mad(angry & nuts). Oh, and they’re the ones who didn’t even show up for the meeting.

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    President Trump was correct. I am sick of winning and it’s only year one.

    • WSWSapphire

      But it’s a nice kind of sick-lol Rest up & be ready for more!

    • Greg Waters

      It’s a good sick though. I want to stay sick of winning.
      Actually it is great to win.

    • Deplorable Dirty Harry

      Only thing better than all this winning……..watching the demoRat scream, whine and shyte their diapers!

  • DrMitoFit

    I think the Dems plan was an all out attack on Trump’s ego to frustrate him with lack of success, lack of accomplishment, and Washington quagmire, so that he would give up and not run for reelection in 2020. Since Trump has a booming economy, low inflation, record low unemployment, record optimism, military successes (crushing ISIS), an effectively castrated Mueller investigation, an FEC investigation into Hillary’s money laundering, and now this tax relief law, there will be no stopping him.

    • MeMyself&I

      Something else you never hear the media reporting on is how the Trump administration has brought back Americans that were wrongfully held in other countries. The left is mad that he is keeping all his promises and winning. I say that if they don’t like it, they can all go commit suicide. The world would be a better place for it.

      • Deplorable Dirty Harry

        plenty of tall bridges

        • MeMyself&I

          Amen brother!!!

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            no guns, we know the libaturds would blame the nra

          • MeMyself&I

            Yep. You have given me a great idea!!! I need to start a bungee jumping business!!

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            just make the cords ten feet longer than needed (thats for the ‘libatard’ line)

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    Here’s to wondering if democrat politicians will work to prevent this tax cut from being expired several year after its passage. We’re watching!

  • Jock E Shift

    Refreshing to have a President who keeps his word.

  • Rexlion

    I’m glad it passed along party lines. That way, when the new law causes the economy to roar alive, everyone will know which party aided the economic boom and which party tried to prevent it.

    Honestly, I never thought I’d see the day when more than half the people in the country would be stupid enough to oppose a tax cut.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Tax cuts in a time of economic highs don’t cause the economy to boom.

      • MeMyself&I

        Speaking of stupid, look who shows up but Rufus the dufus.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Your ignorance is showing

          • MeMyself&I

            Ignorance?? Not at all little boy. Sorry if can’t stand the truth. Deal with your mental disorder.

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            yours will be while doing your taxes- if you in fact pay taxes like the rest of us.

            MAGA-get use to it!

          • Rufus Firefly

            They tossed you a little treat so you wouldn’t notice their corrupt additions that benefit themselves and Trump and his friends. Corker was a no until one thing changed – his own multi-million dollar cut. Your little treat distracts from the big fat gifts to the 1% who give them money. They wanted a return on their investment.

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            watching CNN will make you go blind

          • Scotty

            That, and what he does while watching it.

          • MeMyself&I

            Pse excuse dufus rufus….. The stupid is extreme with that boy.

          • Rufus Firefly

            Do you have anything worthwhile to say?

          • MeMyself&I

            Seems like there are a lot of people that have asked you that very same question. You surely don’t and everyone knows it.

          • Rufus Firefly

            The most valuable bit of factual information that you all ignore is this – Trump is a con man.

          • MeMyself&I

            You keep saying that with no proof. Typical of you leftist crybaby trolls. Just admit that you are butthurt because you lost and we are winning. All your pathetic whining and crying will never change the fact that you lost little boy. Get over it.

          • Deplorable Dirty Harry

            yeah sure skippy

        • WSWSapphire

          That made me laugh! I have him blocked which makes it more pleasant for me personally, but I do get a kick out of seeing some of the replies.

          • MeMyself&I

            😉

          • Scotty

            Same here!

    • SaidNO2Liberalism

      Like the Geico Insurance commercial, I just saved a ton of aggravations by blocking trolls.

  • Sylvia Avila

    Great News! Trump has made History again, man, he must have an Angel on his shoulder. God bless him for hanging in their and putting up with not only the Deep State Gang, but misguided Dems and some GOP people in his own party? That is why he is called a deal maker! God Bless President Trump! 2020 MAGA!!

    • Living in the Times

      Well stated friend!!!!…MAGA

    • WSWSapphire

      I remember seeing him speak to a group during the campaign, and he mentions he wrote “The Art of the Deal” and advises the then current admin. to “Read it. Quick!!!!” as he was speaking about their horrible trade deals-lol I agree so much, him hanging in there and still enthusiastic through it all. Keep MAGA, President!! You’re doing great!!! p.s. Thank you for the wonderful Christmas present

  • Sylvia Avila

    Yes, people need to educate them selves on that, and how our Country works? Public Schools are one big indoctrination class room! They Stop! teaching real History and other facts completely. Why? Because it seems our Public Schools have been hijack by Militant Liberal crazies who do not care about anything but their Liberal Agenda.

  • Legion

    You’re an idiotic troll, just leave already. Nobody wants you here.

    The tax bill that just passed essentially has killed obamacare once and for all. You’re just to stupid to comprehend that.

  • DrMitoFit

    I am a doctor and my wife is an architect. We are very hard working, no medical conditions, no kids, and paid off mortgage. We were being taxed up the wazoo with our only deductions being state and local taxes, which will now be capped at a deduction of $10,000 if you itemize. It normally takes me 2-3 hours to itemize with my H&R Block tax program, and still have to write a huge end of the year check to pay my taxes. With the new doubled standard deduction, we can file our 2018 taxes without itemizing in less than 5 minutes on a postcard, just like president Trump promised. A tax calculator says I will have a nice 15.7% reduction in my federal tax burden ($102,000 instead of $121,000). Thank you President Trump! We hard working wage earners needed a break! We will still pay over $35,000 in state and local taxes. So we will contribute about $137,000 in taxes to society every year, in case you think we won’t be paying our fair share.

    • Living in the Times

      $102,000.00 in taxes???? WOW, tax BURDEN is an understatement!

      • DrMitoFit

        Actually, we currently pay $156,000 in total taxes every year (fed, state, local, and real estate).

        • Living in the Times

          You definitely deserve a break. Maybe take PatrickJ’s advice from above.

    • PatrickJ

      None of my business Dr., but you need a good investment counselor. I know people in your tax bracket who pay a fraction of what you pay.

    • Deplorable Dirty Harry

      Antifa/Bernie would want your money and property but still want your hard labor all the same.
      We should all THANK GOD, HilLIARy did not become potus45!

      MAGA T-45!

  • conquest915

    I love how the dems hate and despise this even though it helps their voter because of their vicious hate and spite.

    They will obstruct, condemn, criticize, lie about anything good Trump tries to do even at the expense of and damage to the country and its citizens. And they can’t deny it when they are so blinded and it is out in the open.

  • DCBlueBlood

    Michael Bloomberg:

    “CEOs aren’t waiting on a tax cut to “jump-start the economy” — a favorite phrase of politicians who have never run a company — or to hand out raises. It’s pure fantasy to think that the tax bill will lead to significantly higher wages and growth, as Republicans have promised. Had Congress actually listened to executives, or economists who study these issues carefully, it might have realized that.”

    Fantasy Land

    • Scarlett

      Well once again Bloomberg is wrong …AT&T is now giving all their Employees a $1000.00 Bonus plus they are now going to invest 1 billion in the economy ….all thanks to the Tax Reform & jobs bill passing this morning !!!!

      Suck it up Buttercup …..President Trump is bringing our Economy Back Hugely …With these tax breaks ..us Working American’s will have more money to spend on what we haven’t bought in the last 20+yrs …….

      • DCBlueBlood

        Ooooh a whole $1000 be like Microsoft, Sales Force or Facebook give $10,000 that’s a bonus. After tax $1000 woopie.

  • Paul Curto

    Congratulations to the President and the GOP. They now have proof of the ability to govern. Now on to issues that will rebuild the country. First, let’s have roads, bridges, powerplants, sewage treatment, waterways and dams built and restored asap. It’s way overdue. Second, we need to restore our dignity and culture of diversity brought together in the American melting pot. Then we must build peace and prosperity across the land. In the meanwhile, enjoy the holidays with our families!

    • Legion

      Merry Christmas!!

  • Martin Arredondo

    Nice. I’ll get a “raise” next year. Haven’t had one in about 8 yrs or so.

      Agree not excited at all here – guess we’ll have to SEE the difference personally. Trickle down only works when we have benevolent corporations – don’t see many of those

    • conquest915

      As history has proven, I will play the optimist because if the dems were so dead set against it, it must really be good for the taxpayers.

      • Deplorable Dirty Harry

        yeah demorats are pissed because tax spending bug swimming studies are doomed. And the masters’ run 50% on welfare days are over, their ‘brain slaves’ are free to work and earn a living.

    I bet Pelosi and Schumer are in the closet crying together like the libs did when Hilly lost the election! pahahahahahahaha

    • MeMyself&I

      Good!! I hope they cry themselves to sleep every night.

      • Living in the Times

        You know…as of September, some are still in therapy dealing with Hilly’s loss…for real! S-A-D!!!!!!

        “A New York Times reporter says that she knows people who are “still
        in therapy” ever since Hillary Clinton lost to President Trump in
        November. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, Yamiche Alcindor said
        that Clinton’s new book “What Happened” was a way for Clinton and her
        supporters to “vent” and cope with the election results.”

        • MeMyself&I

          LOL!!!! Sad isn’t it? So much butthurt.

          • conquest915

            Well, on the bright side, libs in deep depression and butt hurt over this election are prone to be suicidal. And I would like to wish them all the luck in the world on that endeavor if they so elect and thank them for thinning out the herd and cleaning the gene pool.

          • MeMyself&I

            Amen brother!!

          They are the biggest babies. Selfish, too, as it never occurs to them what it felt like for us. We didn’t cry, as awful as it was, and it happened 2 elections in a row. Wonder if they’ll be out of therapy b/f the next election?(Crybabies may end up throwing a good deal of their lives away over Hill who only cared about their votes so she could rob them. Hill deserves to cry from shame. But why can’t those babies open their eyes & enjoy all the good that’s started & going to continue?) Sheesh….

      Trickle down economics does not work, and never has.

          Lol!!

        • Deplorable Dirty Harry

          every day is a rainy day for RF

  • Todo

    Well, personally, it is good for me …from what I’ve read so far. I take the standard, make around 60k, don’t own a home, no kids, and no health insurance. I usually pay around 9k in income taxes, somewhere around 15%. Also, I paid $695 extra last year for that stupid mandate penalty. So, all-in-all it probably puts 2 thousand in my pocket. Just a guess though. We’ll see.

    • Rufus Firefly

      And who pays the medical bills when you have a pulmonary embolism? (it could happen)

      • Andrew Moore8

        Who pays for your medical Rufus the Dufus when you stab yourself in your own eye with a pencil????

        • MeMyself&I

          Unfortunately we do. He’s a welfare queen.

      • Todo

        In that case I’ll just drive myself to the hospital and crash the car. Then, the auto insurance will pay for it. Haha

        • Andrew Moore8

          Crash it into Rufus the Dufus, then I will be a witness that he ran into you and have HIS insurance pay for it….

        • Rufus Firefly

          In actuality, everyone else ends up paying for your medical bills.

          • Andrew Moore8

            That’s only if he has to get medical attention numb nuts….if he is healthy and doesn’t need a doctor then nobody is paying for sheet…..God you libtards lack free thinking skills.

          • Todo

            Well, I put 150/month in a savings account I call “Health Savings”…if you have to know. Hopefully, it stays in that account until I get much older. I felt that was my best option since I haven’t been to the doctor in 11 years…thank god, knock on wood, rub a rabbits foot. Anyway, I felt like I could handle my own health costs if necessary and the savings account along with paying the 695/year seemed like the best plan for me.

          • Todo

            Andrew is right. I haven’t been to the doctor in 11 years…thank god, knock on wood, rub a rabbits foot. And before I needed that shoulder x-ray 11 years ago it had been another 10 or so since I’d been. …Actually, I did go to an urgent care 2 years ago when I got strep throat but they gave me a prescription for an antibiotic and it was like 10 bucks, the visit was 95 without insurance. I started a savings account for future health costs (150/month), hopefully that money stays in there and I won’t need it. Also, I don’t take any prescription meds. I read somewhere that most of America is on some kind of prescription, so I feel pretty lucky there.
            Honestly, I just couldn’t see paying $450 a month for something I never use. And I don’t mean to rub it in sick people’s face but I never go to the doctor. I don’t even have a primary doctor, so I’m not sure where I’d go even if I had to. The guy at the urgent care was pretty nice.. I eat healthy (no fast food), no sodas (just la Croix), no added salt in the house and no sugar crystals either. Those are my big rules; no added salt, no fast food, no added sugar, and no sugary sodas. So far it has worked out. 10 years from now I may need to buy a policy but I’m going to roll the dice until then. Think happy thoughts rufus, it may help

          • Rufus Firefly

            Just sayin’. You never know. Three years ago I tripped on an unexpected step in the shadows and broke my wrist and boogered up my knee. The “without insurance” cost would have been $60,000. Insurance is for when you need what you didn’t expect, too.

          • Greg Waters

            Government insurance sucks. Ask a Veteran. Free Markets govern. Right now we have an Oligarchy. Only the largest corps can play.
            When Reagen deregulated the il industry there was an uproar from the Left. At the end of the day they over produced and the price on oil plummeted.

          • Rufus Firefly

            ACA does not offer “government insurance” to the individual market. All plans are from private insurance companies.

          • Todo

            Private insurance companies? You’re kidding, right? There was only one company that even had approved insurance available here in my state. How is that a market?

          • Rufus Firefly

            That does not make them any less private.

          • Todo

            Yeah they’re private, private and exclusive. A private monopoly with no competition

          • Andrew Moore8

            but it does make them very very expensive.

          • Andrew Moore8

            Yea, most were going broke so they pulled out of the market…..

          • Rufus Firefly

            We should do better with veterans care, but we should have better health care available for everyone. Vets should just have insurance so they can go anywhere they want.

            But there are still some things that may best be done in a VA environment surrounded by other vets. Things like PTSD, TBI, prosthetics, wound care. If they did only those things and vets could go elsewhere for diabetes, cardiac, and other non service connected stuff, they might get better care.

          • Greg Waters

            That was an honest thoughtful reasoned response. Thank you!

            True, I can’t argue with that. Anything could happen, sure. I have my clumsy moments for sure, like everybody else. And you know, we are all going to die …someday. I can save money for emergencies without the government’s help though. So thanks, but no thanks. I’m going to do like Nancy and “just say no” to their health insurance. Remember to think happy thoughts!
            By the way, I know what insurance is for. I’ve done my own risk assessment and I have determined …I ain’t buying it. I’ll stick with the savings account.

        Also, Rufus I just want to say how important it is to balance your sodium and potassium intake. If you are concerned about heart problems specifically, make sure you get just as much or more potassium in your diet as you do salt. Too much sodium is the #1 problem today, imo. So fruits and veggies have high levels of potassium and low levels of salt. That’s why doctors want you to eat your fruits and veggies. If you don’t listen to another thing I said, just remember that; balance your sodium and potassium. If you eat some super salty food make sure you eat like 5 bananas right after. You’re welcome

        • Rufus Firefly

          That’s Trump’s health care plan

          • Todo

            lol, ok that was pretty funny. Eat 5 bananas and call me in the morning.

          • WSWSapphire

            I don’t know what he said, but that was funny!!

  • Harold Swift

    Yeah. McConnell finally became great. NOW, lets dump him at the first possible chance. Many of these zebras need to go in 2018 as they don’t know if their stripes are black or white. We know them, Also kn0wn as rhinos.

  • Rufus Firefly

    This is not a “middle class tax cut”. They threw you a bone so you would not notice that this is just a massive cut for the 1%. Trickle down economics has never worked. Corporate tax cuts will NOT result in investment and jobs. Corporate windfalls will be used to buy back stock. There are no provisions to prevent overseas job moves. They could even be encouraged. Jobs, jobs, jobs.

    No hearings. Rushed through. Why? So it passes before you know what it really has in it.

    Trump said this would not benefit the rich and that he would pay a lot more under this bill. Both of those statements are lies, but who could have known that Trump lies? Everything that Trump promised about this bill was a lie.

    The 1% already control a bigger share of wealth than ever before – this just widens their lead. 13 million folks will lose health insurance, but Trump says that’s positive.

    The increase in the deficit will just strengthen the republiecon impetus to cut medicare and social security. Ryan has already said that is next.

    The real beneficiaries of this bill are the republiecon donor class, the real masters of your representatives.

    • Harold Swift

      Without the moneyed people, there would be no jobs and the way the dems were going, there wasn’t any anyway. Now you will see some come back and gest people off or boot them off welfare.

      • Rufus Firefly

        This bill will not create jobs – or bring jobs back from overseas. There may be more job moves.

        • Andrew Moore8

          Same old bs you been spewing since you learned how to spell you name and joined OANN comment section….In the mean time best employment numbers ever, best GDP ever, stock market hitting 25000 any day now……Yup, I would say you don’t know jack sheet about what your talking about.

          • conquest915

            Just block Rufus the Dufus’s sorry arse, it has nothing but hate and discontent seasoned with massive amounts of stupidity.

    • Andrew Moore8

      My question is why are you Rufus the Dufus not one of the 1%ers? Could it be because you are lazy and lack work ethics and discipline necessary to become successful? Or are you just content sucking off the teat of America.

  • freeaxle

    It is a shame that so many people have been mislead on the conservative liberal difference. All that seems to be going on is hateful ideas thrown at each other. Together we have a great country, as it is with all the political bashing we have a third word country. Liberals and conservatives working together can do, and has done great things. Working against each other will lead to a civil war. Take your pick because your voice counts.

    • Andrew Moore8

      I vote civil war….lets rid these great states of these liberal numb nuts once and for all.

      • WSWSapphire

        Yes, if it comes to a choice between that and socialism, we better do something big, or we’ll all be trapped, with the wealthy, corrupt elite as our masters. (I hope it doesn’t come… well, ever, but I think it will someday. Hope we have a few glory years, though, as the U.S.A. All the hard-working U.S. citizens deserve it. And if it ever does become a socialist jail, the people who stupidly went along w/it will see just how utterly foolish they were when remembering back to the good ole great America glory days, and realize too late what they’ve done.)

    • WSWSapphire

      If one side refuses & spews out lies, which they do, then they’ve made it impossible. They’re dangerous, as well. Imagine if you were accused of a crime you didn’t commit(and a conservative as well). Would you rather have Trey Gowdy(Republican Oversight Committee), the R.Mueller special, or Comey FBI investigate your case? It’s Mueller who picked the most biased people he could find. That would never be allowed in any (non-corrupt… what a shame to have to add that here) courthouse in the U.S. It’s one of the most important things done when picking a jury for a case. I expect you know about Comey…

      • Rufus Firefly

        Choose Gowdy only if you can find any possible way to blame HRC.

        • Andrew Moore8

          WE don’t have to blame HRC…she pretty much makes it apparent for the world to see on her own.

    • WSWSapphire

      You meant third world, but third word will fit it the libs had their way. We used to watch Star Trek and think of great advances that might be in store. Socialism – how backwards can that be? Let’s have a dictator, where the people have been dumbed down, and by the time they have grandchildren, it would be to the point of 3 word literacy. Books & reading for the elite only, like the good, old, horrible days… or even modern day NK is all but there, as they can at least read. Take your pick, and bye bye to “Where no one has gone before”.

  • DrMitoFit

    All the Dems voted No for middle class tax cuts and competitive corporate tax rates. But I bet they will all rally together to support DACA and illegal immigration and threaten to shutdown the government unless illegals get amnesty. They are no longer representing America. Disgraceful!

    • conquest915

      Absolutely correct, And I want to hear one of their favorite lies about republicans and conservatives being the party of obstructionist again.

  • DrMitoFit

    Really disappointed with the Dems putting petty partisan politics above what is good for the middle class. Really upset with Sen Joe Manchin D-WV. Where is the pay back for Trump helping West Virginia, increasing coal exports by 70% via deregulation, and increasing WV GDP by record amounts? Congress even bumped the corporate tax rate (which was Manchin’s so called sticking point) from 20% to 21%. Yet he voted No. Manchin is pretty stupid if he hopes to get reelected in his red state.

    • Andrew Moore8

      All libtards are stupid….liberalism is a mental illness.

        What’s strange is there a cure for it, but it just happens to be illegal.

          Can it be a self induced cure? Just asking because it works for anyone that crosses the clintoons.

        Just having the RINOs register as the Democrats they are and force the 60’s Bolsheviks from the party leadership and back to CPUSA would be major improvement.

      How does this improve America?

      • Andrew Moore8

        Rufus the Dufus is asking another question….You have to forgive him….his obummer mandated common core education will not allow this genius azzclown the free thinking skills necessary to figure it out for himself.

    • Andrew Moore8

      because liberalism is a mental illness….want proof? just read some of Rufus the Dufus’s past comments….You will see exactly what I am saying.

    • conquest915

      Hate and spite of Trump and any success he is having would be my 1st guess. They have failed miserably the last 10 years with the country finally getting back on its feet thru Trumps leadership will highlight those failures. And they know it.

      • Legion

        They told some Liberals about the Tax Bill on the street but told them it was Bernie’s plan and they applauded it .. they were shocked when it was revealed it was instead Trump’s plan.

        These idiots have no clue about laws or politics. They run on pure emotion and blindly hate anything Trump.. but they could never give you any specific reasons why.

        Liberals are idiots.

        • Andrew Moore8

          Liberalism is a mental disorder….

        • zeitgeist

          If we had a truly investigative media they would run with this idea and go to colleges, Union meetings, Teachers unions, government employee unions etc and represent the tax bill as written and passed by the congress as a democrat plan, take a poll on whether it was “good or bad” and then publish the results. I bet 80% would say it was a great plan. But I won’t hold my breath for that to happen.

      • Rufus Firefly

        And you do?

        • Andrew Moore8

          Yes, we do….because we are smart enough to know where to find the draft of the bill online and we are smart enough to read it….If your name wasn’t Rufus the Dufus and you didn’t suffer with obummers common core education you probably could have found it and read it also.

    • Andrew Moore8

      Hey numb nut….he did show you his taxes….and he paid more as a percentage than most middle class working Americans do…..What’s going to haunt D’s like you is the fact that you are going to have to get a job and actually do something other than riot and protest….You are going to have to (oh my god say it isn’t so) contribute to society.

    • DrMitoFit

      The leaked Trump tax return showed that he paid nearly twice the tax rate (25%) of socialist Bernie Sanders (13.5%). Trump is not making a salary as President, donating it all to charities. He is not in it to make money, he is in it to help America.

      • Rufus Firefly

        Trump himself leaked that return because it was from the only year that he paid anything. He is never “in” for anything except to help Trump.

  • nfcapitalist

    Steny Hoyer saying this bill will cause great debt… shrimp on a treadmill, UFO millions to Harry Reid’s crony, fraud and waste… cut where we don’t see lasting value… how dumb is that?

    Not to be too melodramatic about it, but this comes at a good time. It’s just a few days before Christmas and while the season of Christmas is uplifting itself, this just puts the icing on the cake.

    As is my normal habit each morning, I shower and dress for the day, grab a cup of tea, turn on the Mac and put some christmas music on. Then I go to OANN to catch the news. This morning it was good.

    Merry Christmas to President Trump and Melania and Merry Christmas to all of the OAN readers and family.

  • Merry Christmas and enjoy this I re wrote:
    Twas the night before Christmas 2017 Version

    Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house
    not a Clinton was stirring not even the louse.
    The nooses were hung on the gallows with care
    in hopes that Saint Mueller soon would be there.

    The Deplorables were nestled all snug in their beds
    while visions of tax reform danced in their heads.
    Sarah’s done with her briefing and Bannon’s in a cap
    they posted for all; its time for a nap.

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
    Conyers sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
    Away from the woman he had in his house
    Through open the shutters like he tore off her blouse.

    The moon on the breast of the innocent aide
    Gave light to the Senate’s and Congress charade.
    When what to Franken’s wondering eye should appear
    But a MAGA sleigh and eight rowdy reindeer.

    With a little old driver, so witty and plump
    I knew in a moment it must be Ole Trump.
    More rapid than “Eagles” his “Courses” they came,
    And he Tweeted and tweeted, and called them by name

    “Now, Ryan! Now Corker! Now, Gowdy and Jordan!
    On, Schultzie, On Maxie, On Nancer and Chuckie!
    To the top of the Mt Rushmore! To the top of Kate’s Wall!
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
    As I ran down the stairs, and was turning around
    Down the chimney St. Donald came with a bound.

    He was dressed all in white , from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all tarnished with grasses and soot
    A bundle of clubs he had flung on his back
    And he looked like a golfer, just opening his sack.

    His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry
    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a berry!
    His hand held his pen so tightly and bold
    And the hair on his head was as yellow as gold.

    He was Bubbly and Pumped , a right jolly ole elf,
    And I laugh’d when I saw him in spite of myself
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a lie but went straight to his work
    And called them Fake News, he said with a smirk
    Closing the Border and Trade Deals he froze
    And then giving a nod, up in the Polls he did rose.

    He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew, like a Fat Mans Missile
    But I heard him exclaim, to the Country’s Delight

    We say Merry Christmas, now get this just right
    Keep Christ in Christmas and have a Good Night.

    • PatrickJ

      That was remarkable! You have a gift for writing. Merry Christmas, Patriot.

          Lol – True. (He did mention the sun)… but they’d complain even more, if it was a beautiful sunny day. And Trump likes to describe quite a few things as big, beautiful…. so we’re gonna need good earplugs to shut out Lib noise!

            Someone said the UK citizens gave up their gun rights…don’t know if it’s true or not…but I guess there would be no reason for gun ranges if there are no guns…In America gun ranges and training centers are everywhere.

    When it goes back to the house, they will add a couple trillion dollars in pork to it. President needs “line item veto”, and we all need “One Bill at a Time”

  • TwoInchPattern

    Actually that’s also not quite accurate. One cannot accurately omit the “democracy” aspect of our form of government. Ours would best be described as a “constitutional democratic federal republic”. If one insists on a shorter form, then “democratic republic” would best fit. Some believe that “democratic” and “constitutional” may be interchanged, but the folly of that approach is not difficult to imagine. Unfortunately one cannot find a definitive authority on this matter; there are many opinions on the exact description best used.

  • Rich Parker

    and you failed at trying to deflect from the WIN the American WIN!

  • Javanne

    Hopefully it will pass the House re-vote, and the president will sign it into law. However, given the history of its development and the debacle of the Obamacare repeal effort, I won’t cheer until that happens. Even then, the Democrats are likely to fight some or all of its provisions in the courts, probably starting with the 9th circuit, in an attempt to delay its implementation until after the 2018 election or at least until it becomes too late for the bill to have a tangible effect before then out of fear it will work as promised. I hope the GOP has a plan to get immediate relief from the likely 1st round Democratic victory at the Supreme Court.

    • PatrickJ

      Isn’t it amazing that even with such a, “get things done” president, we still have an opposing party and also some on our side, that want to block anything the President tries to do that is good for the country? These people don’t represent the American citizens. They only represent their own interests.

    Venezuela or North Korea?

    • PatrickJ

      But only because we have a president who created the right conditions for that to happen.

    • Vera Orsova

      I was thinking the same, about Pelosi. The only thing missing is our Nancy to take off her shoe and pound it on the table.

  • Rich Parker

    This is a win for the GOP and it doesn’t matter how you spin it, I am not concern whether I get more money in my pocket I just want to see America become more prosperous and if that means the rich get richer then so be it because with their prosperity comes prosperity for all. The dems as far as I am concern can sit on it and spin!

    • nfcapitalist

      Exactly… making America great again is the vision, the mission, and the world will win when the USA is strong.

    • PatrickJ

      Remember back during Obama’s first term when New York and several other states I believe, imposed a 10% luxury tax on expensive yachts? The rich refused to pay it and the industry was devastated.

      It created a loss of 30,000 American jobs and destroyed dozens of companies in the process,and the revenues never materialized. For every dollar that was collected on the luxury tax, it was estimated the Federal Government paid out $5 for each dollar collected in unemployment benefits and other costs caused by layoffs. Then, too, a contracting economy brought sales that were subject to the tax to a virtual standstill, causing unemployment, plant closings and foreclosures in the marine industry.

      It was repealed a couple of years later, but not before causing a great deal of hardship for the companies and employees who worked in that industry. Perfect example of how Liberal policies don’t work.

  • nfcapitalist

    Schumer looks and sounds like the Grinch forecasting disaster and he and Pelosi’s Progressives (communists) will make that chaos come true if they can… they do hate our country.

    • hoplophile

    As I read somewhere, as pro is the opposite of con, so is progress the opposite of congress, nu?

  • ShemSilber2

    Yes, indeed, but can we list the presidents who actually had any respect for the Constitution, let alone in fact observing the oath to “preserve, protect, and defend” it? Maybe there was some evidence of that in Ronald Reagan, but hardly in anyone between him and President Trump, and especially not in Pharaoh Barry, and even less in Bonnie-Parker-&-Clyde-Barrow-on-steroids Clinton.

    Praises to Almighty Yahuwah for hearing America’s prayers for relief from the DNC program of the destruction of America and giving us a break, and for that we ought to give hearty thanks to Him, in the Name of our Creator and Redeemer, the Master Yahusha, His Son, amein.

  • ShemSilber2

    It seems to me that the best part of the bill is the repeal of the Obama-SNARE mandate. We need to stop all of the prenatal murder of our babies, let alone the FORCED payment against our will and against even the most basic human morality that tells anyone with a lick of sense in their heads what a demonic practice pre-natal murder is, yet outfits like Planned NON-Parenthood (Murder, Inc.) make big bucks off it AND selling the body parts to whomever will pay for them. Oh, they’ll PAY, all right, but not with the currency they like to give out, says Almighty Yahuwah, in the Name of the Master Yahusha (Lord Jesus), who formed all our lives in the womb, ever since He formed Adam from the dust of the earth (John 1:1-18; Colossians 1:13-17; Hebrews 1:1-3), halleluYAH and amein!.

  • Brad

    I see many have an opinion either in support or not in support. Let’s give this piece of legislation time then assess the impact. I believe if provides more for the working group. I’m retired and some of my monthly income is social security and to-date I have seen no evidence there will be an impact. Now, if I listen to pelosi or Schumer then I’d better be ready to meet my maker for they continue to predict the sky is falling.

    • hoplophile

      one of the major impacts that we don’t need to wait and see about is the fact that it fails to repeal obamacare.

      now the republican’ts will smile, pat themselves on the back, tell the gullible americans who voted for/support them that this is a good thing (and some parts of it are), and then they’ll move on to focus on other things and obamacare will not be repealed.

      it’s kinda like lazy, illegal immigrant workers hurriedly doing a half-azz job, dressing it up to look complete, then haulin’ azz, rather than taking the time to do it right.

      • Legion

        This tax bill just killed obamacare you idiot.

        Why don’t you just leave you stupid troll?

    • PatrickJ

      A sensible comment, Brad. I believe as we settle in with this new tax cut plan, there will be some out there who will continue to criticize it just on basic Liberal principles, but I predict the overall impact will be a big improvement for working class Americans. I think the reduction of the corporate tax will have the biggest impact on the economy.

  • AshJonson

    All this cheering and BS means nothing until the Senate passes theirs and they merge the bill and THEN get it to President Trumps desk. It’s not a victory until POTUS signs the bill!

    • PatrickJ

      True what you say Ash, but it shouldn’t keep us from talking about it in the meantime.

  • Glenda Hammer

    Thank God they’re doing this.
    Obama wasted 10 trillion dollars in 8 years, and left me and millions of American taxpayers to pay the bill. Now instead of paying thousands of dollars in taxes and getting next to nothing back, I and millions of middle class taxpayers will finally get a large part of our tax dollars back.
    If you work for a living instead of receiving welfare, you should love this bill.
    Don’t listen to the lying Democrats who supported every dirty thing Obama and Corrupt Hillary did.

      Now if they can cut, scratch that… now if they will cut spending and fraud.

    Chuck Schumer is calling it a disgrace saying people shouldn’t pay more taxes than corporations

    I think chuck forgot he voted for gov cuomo’s corporate tax relief which gave corporations a ten year no-tax break if they moved into NYS.

    • Nick Rose

      Outstanding observation.

      I can use that, thanks.

  • Section Ate

    1. The GOP’s tax bill hurts veterans, AcDu service members, & their families in a number of ways. The bill repeals the “Work Opportunity Tax” credit now available to employers when they hire svc-connected veterans, is unemployed, or receives food stamps. Also repealed is the “Disabled Access Credit,” which helps small businesses provide access to veterans & others w/disabilities.
    2. The bill eliminates the education loan deduction, making schooling more expensive for those who have to take out a student loan to supplement GI Bill benefits. AcDu service members stand to lose from the change to the capital gains tax exemption, requiring residence in a home for 5yrs to be eligible. Military families that relocate more frequently will no longer qualify for this tax break. Because many states’ tax code mirrors the federal IRS these changes apply to filers.

    • nfcapitalist

      Donald Trump is the CC and will support veterans with solutions to Schumer initiated holes that were intended to block tax reform… DT is the POTUS and promised to have the military’s back… you think he won’t?

      • Section Ate

        By repealing the “Yellow Ribbon” program in the “Post-9/11 G.I. Bill,” @nfcapitalist, this tax bill does a disservice to veterans, AcDu military, & families.

    I don’t even care if I get a tax cut. Americans need tax cuts. Not a single democrat voted for these tax cuts which says a lot. Be sure to tell everyone you know in 2018 primaries that democrats did this.

    • PatrickJ

      To most Democrats, taxes are like manna from heaven. Taxes on the masses is what makes their world work. Without our taxes, they don’t know where to turn, because they count on those taxes more than they count on the sun coming up tomorrow. One of the main reasons Democrats sicken me.

      • phil thompson

    While I am fully aware that a small number of us here tend to dominate the conversation, that is not really our intent. The main reason most of us come here in the first place, is that we thrive on conversation. Please, come here. Tell us what you think. I’ll shut up. I just want to know what you think about this mess. Because in the end, we are all simply Americans.

    • SaidNO2Liberalism

      All I know, and like Bill O, I’m a very simple man, is that I love my 45th President!

  • PatrickJ

    I guess the conclusion of this argument here this evening is that while we have a government that is mostly corrupt, we still have at the same time a President who is not. While I don’t know if I should be happy about that or just shoot myself in the foot, I don’t know. But since I am rather fond of my foot, I think I’ll just continue to support this rather remarkable President.

    • Wanda

      No one else could have accomplished so much in such a short time against so much adversity. He really is remarkable.

      • Rufus Firefly

        That is complete hogwash conceived and repeated by Trump the con man.

  • PatrickJ

    Even when something of this magnitude takes place, I have my reservations about the so=called victory.
    Because most of the people in the Senate think the people in the House are minor league participants in the entire process. They don’t see them as real equals. Big mistake on their part. Because our Founders didn’t see it that way exactly.

    Political scientist Richard Neustadt wrote that the Constitution created “separate institutions sharing powers,” and that’s precisely the right description of the legislative authority vested in the House and Senate. While it’s all the rage right now to denounce Congress and the political system as “broken,” it’s worth remembering that the Framers designed the system to frustrate quick, easy action by government, and to enable government action only when people broadly agree. The distinctive structures of the House and Senate, as well as the resulting political difficulties, are a significant component of that design.

    • Rufus Firefly

      the republican house and senate seem to be unaware that they do not work for Trump.

  • nfcapitalist

    Finally got what we needed… a businessman for president and he’s showing the world they are wrong and that doing the same thing with respect to our economy and that money stream we know as taxes and expecting change… is crazy.

    Government has no idea where those trillions, thousands of billions… are spent… do you know how your personal money has been spent this last year? The bureaucrats in the State Department lost Seven billion $ under Hillary’s watch… think the FBI is looking for those billions?

    • PatrickJ

      Here lately, we seem to be finding ourselves more and more on the same topics with the same opinion. We’ll have to be careful going forward. People are starting to talk. Not that I care, really. Actually, I find the whole thing amusing.

      Go Trump!

  • SaidNO2Liberalism

    I also challenge democrats in Congress and Senate to prevent this tax cut from being expired several years from its passage. Tax-and-spend liberals must be beside themselves with this historic event. MAGA!

    Republican Senators and Congressional Representatives from CA, NJ, and NY need to know that the rest of America will not be subsidizing their constituents for their choice to live in highly taxed areas.

    • CDG

      That’s exactly why these “republicans” were against it. The federal government should not subsidize property in high tax states. Those in California, New York, and New Jersey need to vote out tax and spend politicians or move to states that are not as highly taxed.

    “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” violates budget rules, according to the office of Senate Budget Committee ranking member Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

    “The short title has no budgetary impact,” said Sanders spokesman Josh Miller-Lewis. “They have to strike it and use the official title: ‘An Act to provide for reconciliation pursuant to titles II and V of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2018.’ ”

    UPDATE: At least two provisions of the tax bill Republicans didn’t bother to read will violate the Byrd Rule in the Senate, forcing Senators to make changes to the bill, vote on it tonight, and send it back to the House for a revote.

    The two provisions are: 529 savings accounts applying to home schooled children, and the Hillsdale College exception which would have eased unrelated business taxable income on their endowment, NBC reports.

    Twas the Night Before Christmas 2017

    Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house
    not a Clinton was stirring not even the louse.
    The nooses were hung on the gallows with care
    in hopes that Saint Mueller soon would be there.

    The Deplorables were nestled all snug in their beds,
    while visions of tax reform danced in their heads
    Sarah’s done with her briefing and Bannon’s in a cap
    they posted for all; its time for a nap.

    When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
    Conyers sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
    Away from the woman he flew like a flash,
    Tore open the shutters like he tore off her blouse.

    The moon on the breast of the innocent aide
    Gave light to the Senate’s and Congress charade
    When what to Franken’s wondering eye should appear
    But a MAGA sleigh and eight rowdy reindeer.

    With a little old driver, so witty and plump ,
    I knew in a moment it must be Ole Trump.
    More rapid than “Eagles” his “Courses” they came,
    And he Tweeted , and smiled, and called them by name!

    “Now, Kelly ! now, Nancer! now, Reince and Ryan!
    On, Comey! On, Chuckie, on Waters and Maxie!
    To the top of the Mt Rushmore! To the top of Kate’s Wall!
    Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!”

    And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
    The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
    As I ran down the stairs, and was turning around,
    Down the chimney St. Donald came with a bound
    .
    He was dressed all in white , from his head to his foot,
    And his clothes were all tarnished with grasses and soot
    A bundle of clubs he had flung on his back,
    And he looked like a golfer, just opening his sack.

    His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
    His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
    His hand held his pen so tightly and bold
    And the hair on his head was as yellow as gold.

    He was chubby and pumped , a right jolly old elf,
    And I laugh’d when I saw him in spite of myself;
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.

    He spoke not a lie but went straight to his work
    And called them Fake News he said with a smirk
    Closing the Border and Trade Deals he froze
    And then giving a nod, up the chimney he rose.

    He sprung to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
    And away they all flew, like the Fat Mans missile
    But I heard him exclaim, to the Country’s Delight
    We say Merry Christmas, now get this just right

    Keep Christ in Christmas and have a Good Night.

        Oh I’m pro US Constitution, making me pro-Republic, pro-individualist, anti-collectivist. Democracy is chaos and our founders knew it. Republics give representation without the mob effect; they are not democracies.

        I was a Kennedy liberal, until I saw the top-down anti-capitalist anti-family leftists minimize StalinMao and shift over to long march; dividing our culture and pitting it against itself. I saw the red-diaper leftists spitting on drafted-soldiers. The left’s tune is the same, their instruments are different.

        • TwoInchPattern

          Amen. I share the exact same political/philosophical maturation as you. But remember that a Kennedy liberal is much closer to todays moderate-conservative Republican. Liberalism (now back to being called progressivism) has been pulled radically leftward since the 1960s.

          • Letmesay

            Which tends to reason why Kennedy was assassinated.
            Those in high places did not see him as a Democrat but as you mentioned more like a moderate-conservative. Listening to his speeches,today he makes more sense then some moderate conservatives today. And I don’t believe that Kennedy was for the one world order. But today we know that people like the Bushes are go figure.

            Trump has never written any books. He does not have the attention span. He used hired writers – at least one of whom is pretty sure that Trump never even read it.

          • PatriotInk

            Amazing how much liberals like you know about everything you make up…

          • Rufus Firefly

            Don’t say nay until you are sure – look it up. The truth about Trump is available – just not from him.

  • Rufus Firefly

    This bill has an overwhelmingly negative response. GOP will pay for it in 2018 (just not in the sense of funding it)

  • Rufus Firefly

    They have been tossed from the Trumpjugend.

  • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

    rufus firefly is a paid troll from c n n. Ignore the nutjob.

    • Rufus Firefly

      Wrong on all counts

  • Rufus Firefly

    Oops. It ain’t over ’til it’s over. Senate has to remove parts of the bill because they used chicken litter reconciliation. Means House gets a do over, too.

  • Louis Hoang

    The Dems oppose the tax cut bill because they worry that there won’t be enough money for them to dole out to entitlement programs and illegal aliens. Also, it’s ironic that most protesters are the unemployed ones who don’t pay any tax at all.

    • Rufus Firefly

      It’s ironic that all people who voted for Trump supported a con man.

      • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

        Good evening Troll. Your stupidity makes us conservatives even stronger! How much did soros pay you to troll? Tax-free? Go to your safe space FAKE news cnn, Your existence here makes OANN dirty.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Insult. Inanity. fantasy. fantasy. Parroting. Insult.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            Period usage overwhelming… Especially when you used “insult” and “fantasy” twice each.
            I’m running out of food for the troll….

          • Rufus Firefly

            I was commenting on each statement in sequence.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            Well then… “trigger” would have sufficed in your case for all responses, it seems.

          • Moore by +9

            These people are not smart enough to understand that. But, I think it is gold. And true.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            “These people” … And you accuse US of class warfare.
            Of course you only responded AFTER he explained himself so… I’ll take “Grain of Salt for $200, Alex” that you initially understood him in the first place.

          • Moore by +9

            You assume a lot of things, I assume.
            You assume people like the president. Most don’t, but 35% approve!
            You probably assume people like you. Again, outside of your little internet world, no, people probably don’t like you.
            You assume that the country is better, and hey, why not? You are ignorant! But again, you would assume incorrectly.
            See how assumptions work?
            And when I say “these people”, don’t assume that it is class I am speaking about (something I assume you don’t have anyway, like 45), but I do mean the trumptards that populate this place and brainwashbart. Steve bannon needs some meth, why don’t you hook him up?
            Feel better about what you think I know? Good.

          • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

            What kind of vocal diarrhea are you spewing now?
            Good lord, if I need to relieve myself in pig s+it I could do it in your mouth.
            Since we’re assuming here, I’m assuming you finished high school in the bottom half of the bottom half of your class… I also assume you made it to college… Oh not those big famous ones, but the “community” type.
            While we’re at it, I can assume you made it to shift manager at Arby’ s where you were doing good until you were caught putzing off into the deep fat fryer after hours, and consequently fired.
            After that and 3 failed marriages plus one rumored gay “live in” arrangement, you wound up here to enlighten us with your immaculate verbage.
            Welll damn… Aren’t WE blessed!
            So back atcha, sparkly.

          • Moore by +9

            Yeah, you know what they say about assumptions – I’m right and you’re an a**h*le.

        • Moore by +9

          What if he is just an American that disagrees with you, like me?
          OANN is dirty.

          • Rufus Firefly

            It may not be dirty, but it is poorly filtered

          • MeMyself&I

            He’s not and neither are you. You are both trolls

          • Moore by +9

            Yeah, you are genius. You got me.
            Idiot.

          • MeMyself&I

            No idiot. You got yourself.

          • Moore by +9

            A stellar response. Got anymore like it?

          • MeMyself&I

            Plenty

          • Moore by +9

            I see…… well? Is your trumpcabulary that limited?

          • MeMyself&I

            If you want to hold a conversation with me you will need to stop being childish and acting like a fool. Got it?

          • Moore by +9

            You showed up talking trash. Do I want to hold a convo with someone like that? Not really. So talk your trash or quit bothering me. I made my statement.

          • MeMyself&I

            You are the one that showed up on this site talking trash. Do I really want to hold a conversation with someone like you? Not really. So talk your trash elsewhere or quit bothering us. I made my
            statement. Deal with it.

          • Moore by +9

            You also upvote yourself. You have no credibility, so unless you want me to continue you may just want to block me.

          • MeMyself&I

            You never had credibility here from the start fool. Your whines prove what a loser you are. You will have to go away troll. I am going nowhere.

          • Moore by +9

            You forgot to upvote your comment.

          • MeMyself&I

            You didnt forget to whine though. LOL!!! idiot

          • Moore by +9

            I guess, but if you don’t upvote yourself, how do I have the confidence you will be the short-sighted and shallow person we all know you are? I only like to argue with people that think they are better than everyone else, and those that upvote themselves tell me that right away! So don’t forget again. I like to know who or what I am dealing with.

          • MeMyself&I

            You guess?? There is no guessing about it. You whined like 2 year old. Proof of just how pathetic and childish you are. Of course nothing less is expected of you. All you leftist nut jobs are whiners..

          • Moore by +9

            Funny to hear the same argument over and over again. “You leftists are childish and whine and nut jobs and blah blah blah”
            This is how we know you lost. Not just the arguments, not just some of the battles (hell, you won some of the battles), but you are losing the war for the government.
            Forget me for a sec, think about the future full of me’s. You have a tax bill that about 65% of the country doesn’t like, and that about 97% of the country will not benefit from in the near future. But you don’t care. I don’t like it, so you love it. Good politics there. Well, your good politics will lead you to defeats in ’18 and ’20. All because you want to troll your “fellow” American.
            So, you can say all day I whine (I don’t, but whatever you say), you can complain all day that we are trolls (when the actual troll is the *hole that votes to make Americans angry and no other reason) and you can say we are nut-jobs. None of that matters. What matters is what is happening. Pay attention, you may learn something yet.

          • MeMyself&I

            Who’s arguing?? I only stated facts and truth. All you have done is blather and whine.

  • Deplorable Phytomorphogenesis

            What insults?? Why are you insulted by the truth?

          • Rufus Firefly

            What truth?

            Everything he posted is truth. Sorry if it hurts your little feelings. Go to your safe space if you can’t handle it. Maybe even seek puppy therapy if you are that butthurt.

  • Rich Parker

    OH NO THE SKY IS FALLING THE SKY IS FALLING…get a life people and stop all the virtual spewing! The tax plan is good for the country and improving the job situation that will help people, not hurt people. But as Obama said…we won and you lost now get over it.

    • Legion

      They just hate it because Trump .. if you showed them the same bill and said it was from Obama or Bernie they would love it!!

      Campus Reform did a whole video on this where they pretended it was Bernies tax plan and the liberals applauded it like trained seals.. when in reality they were being told about Trumps tax plan instead!

      • WSWSapphire

        I saw that & bookmarked it!

  • …remain calm and return fire

    Shepard Smith doing his best to denigrate the bill before the senate vote. Of course, Shepard is so confusing it’s really hard to figure out what he’s saying.

      I’m sure the difficulty in understanding him is that he is so very different from Dooce and the Stooges.

        Fox is almost unwatchable, and any program with Juan Williams is an automatic channel flip.

            You are not the only game in town

          • Rufus Firefly

            Sweden? pfft. Why should USA be like any other country? It would be nice if it were not reverting to its 1950s self or showing hints of 1930s Germany.

    227 to 203, not very “sweeping” if you ask me. 400 Yay to 30 Nay, would be SWEEPING!

    • Rufus Firefly

      But this tax bill passed by a landslide, just like Trump’s other victories.

      • Savatage64 (Always Deplorable)

        Considering every victory he gets is against total democratic and partial republican obstruction… Yeah, that’s a landslide.
        The rules of the comments section above said “.. And don’t feed the trolls.” Sorry… You looked hungry.

      • CPO(Ret)_Luv’n_Life

        I guess if small margins are considered “landslides”, than ok. I’m good with this passing. I think it’s funny, the way media makes things sound BIGGER than they really are.

        • Rufus Firefly

          Trumpist media makes it bigger than deserved, just like Trump himself calls his election a landslide.

        • Karl Hungus

          Are you really that thick headed? The tax reforms are sweeping not the margin of victory. Comprendè

          • Rufus Firefly

            The “tax reforms” are a corrupt payback to wealthy republiecon donors and politicians (including Trump)

          • Karl Hungus

            Yeah well, like that’s just opinion man.

          • Rufus Firefly

            An informed opinion

            Not in the slightest.

      The need to repeal the entire Obamacare scam. It’s killing people.

      • Rufus Firefly

        Name one.

        • Eric Smith

          How about my monthly bill is $300 higher then my mortgage. That said, it has a $6,500 deductible. If I have chest pains I will pause and most likely not go to the emergency room… Before OC my monthly was a forth of what it is and the deductible was $2,500… So, to answer the “Name one” of it’s killing people, I say possibly ME! EVERY health insurance except Blue -Cross has LEFT my county and they only offer 3 plans, and I’m on the LOWEST… Dirt-bag Hillary said “look for other options”… NONE, except not have insurance and pay this TAX at year end… Bite me.

          • Rufus Firefly

            And what exactly did your previous plan cover AFTER the deductible? I suspect not much – and with an annual and/or lifetime limit, with severely limited choice of facility. If you go back to 2010 and compare apples to apples – premium, deductible, out of pocket, services covered, limits, facility restrictions, you may find that your old policy did not amount to much..

          • willnkc

            My previous insurance covered almost everything, not it covers NOTHING! Obamacare is the biggest scam this nation has ever imposed on the people.

          • willnkc

      Feel for those who didn’t have a choice though. You know when the congress and senate exempt themselves from a law, your in trouble. When a law is so complex and huge the congress and senate can’t even read it, your in trouble. When the people that wrote the law don’t even remember whats in it, your in trouble.

  • brad m

    We are not a democracy! We are a republic. The democracy thing is a farse. We need to stop saying and spreading that idea!
    And no, it doesn’t mean Republicans are pro republic.

    • GreatGrannyInGeorgia

      Thank you!!

    • Rufus Firefly

      It’s not a farce. We are a representative democracy. Republicans seem not to like the word “democracy”

      • brad m

        Look up what a republic form of government entails. A republic form of government is what is guaranteed by the Constitution. It’s a representative form of government that is bound by laws

        • Rufus Firefly

          The reason that republiecons insist on the distinction is because of the names of the respective political parties. A republic is a subset of representational democracy.

          • brad m

            I suggest you look up and watch The American Form of Government video on YouTube

          • Rufus Firefly

            Thank you, but unsourced, uncredited videos are not where I choose to get my education. A republic is a subset of representational democracy, which means that ours IS a representational democracy. The nit-picking is just alt-right gamesmanship.

          • brad m

            Are you a Democrat or a Progressive?

            So I guess this where you are confused similar to when you said tories were conservatives and the founding fathers were progressives; to which I demonstrated that you were incorrect. I think you need to do more research

    What really seems weird is that no one, and I mean no one has ever mentioned the loss of the Personal Deduction. Look at line 6 and 42 on your 2015 return. GONE!!! Repealed. For a family of 5 that is a $20,250 deduction that I dare say will never be made up. You got that deduction on short and long form. Good luck to all the families.

    The Feds have hiked the interest rates 3 times in 2017, what are you talking about?

    • HarryObrian

      From -.01% to 1.5%? That’s nothing when real inflation is running 5 to 7% and credit cards are ripping people off at 12 to 18%. Ever wonder how credit card companies can be so generous with their fraud coverage and why fraud is allowed or even condoned?
      The FED would have raise rates to at least 3% to even affect the market and they’re offering CD’s at 2% right now out to 2020.
      Their rate hikes are nothing more than smoke and mirrors.

    They’re a bunch of lying sacks on both sides of the aisle. There is NO repeal of the mandate….they are merely setting the penalty % to zero….so when the Demonrats are back in control, they’ll reset the penalty %. Also, I thought this was supposed to be simplification. There’s still going to be 7 brackets. And, I’ll be paying taxes on MORE of my income with the loss of personal exemptions. It’s great for corporations and small business people which should help the economy. But, as it stands now, I’ll hold my assessment of the individual taxation aspect until I see all of the details, although what I’ve seen so far is not encouraging.

    Our New York state and local politicians have been jacking up our taxes for years because of the federal write-off and now we pay the highest taxes in the country! They either need to roll back the state taxes or the mass exodus of people and businesses will accelerate! Same goes for CA, CT and other high tax states!

    • KMA

      I lived there 20 years,do you seriously think they would “roll back taxes”? IMO what needs to happen is for the “Big Apple” to fall off into the Atlantic, it’s built on trash (literally some of it) anyway.

    • HarryObrian

      I agree but where is everyone going to move to that won’t eventually become the same? Little wonder so many old people are happy they are.

    • TexasDeplorable1134

      That is what the rest of the country besides CA and NY have been saying for decades. “Why the heck are you taxes so high?”. Now you just have to start electing fiscally responsibly people into office. FORTUNATELY, they will more than likely NOT be a Democrat.

    What’s up with the sunset
    previsions?

    We know taxes are an ugly fact of life.

    However, what we don’t know is whether the 16th was properly ratified by the states.
    William Benson’s tome The Law That Was. Proves this to be the case.
    He spent ten years in a protracted battle with the IRS.
    In the end when he finally got his day in court the IRS didn’t show up.

    If this has peaked your interest read about joe Banister as well.

  • Bull7822005

    ..And then when will we get a balanced Federal budget? Or heck, even a budget at all?

    • landy fincannon

      Reagan busted the one trillion dollar bench mark, then doubled the debt.

      Now at 20 trillion, which amounts to 640.000 years of seconds. A balanced budget is un- achievable

  • nfcapitalist

    Flake has already made arrangements with the dark side to run as a progressive… he will vote against America’s interests and for what he thinks are his own interests… he will become a traitor to constitutional conservatives and this is his ticket to become one of… them.

  • Andrew Moore8

    John Mcstain is going to try and pull a fast one and kill this bill….

    • AlexanderYpsilantis

      I don’t disagree, but we have enough votes even without McCain. It would be political suicide for any Republican to vote against this bill and even those leaving office (Flake, Corker, etc.) wouldn’t want to be held responsible to their constituents for torpedoing the Stock Markets. McCain is going to look real silly if he abstains and the bill gets passed over him

      • JL Ziegler

        He’s not capable because of health concerns, reminds me of the stuff Hill was going through. Oh well, if you can’t handle it, step down.

      • TexasDeplorable1134

        I do not think McCain really cares at this point. The cancer he has gives him at most 5 years and that is only 5% of the people who lasted that long. 95% last for far less time. He may not even finish his term.

  • kaiju

    Their going to pass it, not because they want to, but because they know Trump will personally call them out as RINOs if they don’t.

    • Javanne

      That won’t matter. Their votes will be based on what their constituents want. Those in high tax states will vote NO, while the others, who are mostly in red states where constituents voted for TRUMP will vote YES. It’s all good. That’s how democracy is supposed to work.

      • kaiju

        Democracy has little to do with our current corrupt congress and senate. They will do what is good for their hidden bank accounts. This is what Trump was elected to change.

        • HarryObrian

          Believe it or not, the population of the US is too large to effect change and the politicos know this so they fill their own wallets and the wallets of their friends and owners. They really don’t know or care to know any different and I’ll hold my reservations about President Trump for the time being.

            Um before he was sworn in?

          • WSWSapphire

            2 yrs. before for me. For some reason I saw the Dem.Nat’l. Conv. 4 yrs. prior to his election. When I heard him speak, I figured he would have a career in politics, though he was on the wrong side of right so I wouldn’t be supporting him (he actually morphed into another type of D… w/a pitchfork.)
            Reporters interviewed attendees, many had glowing praise for this new, ‘dynamic’ speaker (all he is actually-empty words). I thought it would be a minimum 8 yrs., if he ran. Was shocked to hear he was 4 yrs. later. I knew almost nothing about him, except he was young & inexperienced(turns out extremely cunning & evil, as well.)

            Just as well(as it was inevitable dims were going to nominate him), b/c waiting 4yrs., then 8 yrs. in office – he’d currently be… ick, not even gonna finish that. And likely we wouldn’t have Mr. Trump deciding at 73 to go through a marathon nomination process. Would’ve been 4 yrs. older – would be a bigger strain physically & dimwits would’ve used age against him. But they wouldn’t have & didn’t count on Pres. Trump, who is not your average septegenarian. (Even dim politicians know this, but would rather play dumb than acknowledge the truth.)

            Reply in advance of incoming predictable troll drivel (‘No, he’s below average, etc. etc.’) : President Donald J. Trump is an exceptionally excellent, effective and intelligent septegenarian. The best!!

          • All American

            I always felt Barry was totally fake. Not the real deal. I wouldn’t have voted for him if someone offered me a million dollars. He is evil PERIOD. Liar, cheat, thief, master of illusion, a mental disorder that makes him believe that he is somehow better and more relevant than anyone/everyone. He never fooled me but my Holy Spirit life gift is discernment. So many fools “followed” while he “led” them down the path of destruction. But remember there were many that thought Houdini really performed “magic”!
            President Trump is the real deal! What you see is what you get…an American Patriot and a Business Genius🇺🇸

          • WSWSapphire

            You had more insight than I did. I knew a lib, esp. an inexperienced lib is something we didn’t need. It seemed crazy to put such a person as commander-in-chief when you have terrorism, a madman in NK, and other very grave issues going on in the world. People were comparing O to Lincoln b/f the election, but I remember thinking the world was very different when Lincoln was president. And now, absolutely ludicrous- O, yes evil & we haven’t begun to know the extent of it yet, corruptor & destructor – O is the complete opposite of Lincoln. A half-way decent person would also be the opposite of O – the evil is so deep.

          • All American

            You’ve hit the nail on the head 🔨
            I forsee him behind bars for a long long time👍🏻 He will have lotsa time to perfect his Alinsky commie skills!

          • WSWSapphire

            Now that’s great to hear -as a gift of discernment is rare, at least as far as I’ve known-but it’s real. I don’t think O is invincible, but when you get 9 big agency heads corrupted, as well as many more going further down, there’s so many evil there with power & influence, a person wonders if they’ll get away with it like Hill. almost did, but things are looking up. In fact, that’s where we & our leaders have to look. We need God’s wisdom & help- I think our President made it with His help- and if we keep going, then I believe we will, as a nation see justice for all these crimes committed within.
            Thank you for your replies & I really appreciate your posts!

            O would prob. rather be trying to perfect Houdini skills when he’s behind those bars-lol Yep, Trump is the real deal, a patriot & absolutely a business genius!

          • WSWSapphire

            Actually, he said it would cost him personally & joked that some of his friends were mad at him(speech a couple of months ago). The very wealthy’s taxes are increased (just another reason so many dims weren’t happy- don’t know why, as they have far more than most of us will ever see.)
            But businesses are getting cuts, so though individual wealthy tax will increase, their profits will, too.
            Agree w/your sentiment, though. If increasing his acct. meant the country would get better accordingly, so be it. But it’s already much better, and will continue at an accelerated rate once the tax cut goes into effect. (I take your last sentence as sarcasm.)

            Oh yes. I’ve become quite educated on that, since moving here to the UK 5 yrs. ago. I think w/Pres.

Those poor people trapped in NK… Further up the road… could happen if another regressor-oppressor like O managed to dupe their way into the top job at the Whitehouse.

            A constitutionally limited representative democratic republic [where] . . . the constitution, limits the power of government. We elect representatives, so it’s not a pure democracy. But we do elect them by majority rule so it is democratic.

          • chatty cathy

            I used to think the same thing, but my extremely patient Mr has helped me understand that we are indeed a republic. Think of the Pledge of Allegiance. The constitution protects us (the people) from the mob rule of the gov. Out founding fathers were very wise men- a country of the people, by the people and for the people. And if I understand correctly, it’s also why we have ‘electoral’ votes- to ensure fairness of our voting process so the “mob rule” couldn’t “buy” votes- not that that doesn’t happen with all the fraud of the illegals and dead voting 😉 but you get the gist. Trying to help, not embarrass you. Pretty deceptive how democracy/ democratic have been presented. Hope this makes sense. Have a blessed day!!

            allowed those that represent us to stick around long enough to be bought and make a career out of stuffing their own pockets. Look at Obamacare; they voted that onto We the People while keeping THEIR own Cadillac medical plans.

          • HarryObrian

            You’re asking for too much because there are too many greedy liberals in that representative chain. The majority of ALL government workers are politically aligned to the left. People joke about the little service they get from their local, state and federal government… well that’s not accidental, that’s unionized liberals not giving a F about the people while they take home salaries that are one to two times greater than their private sector counterparts plus substantial healthcare insurance and pensions that follow them for life. Their attitude is simply, “If you don’t like it, move.” and “Take it or leave it.”, or one of my favorites, passing the buck, “We don’t control that, the state does.”

          • KMA

            I’ll agree it has accelerated due to the fact we now know what we all have suspected, but could never prove until the age of the internet.

            “Acting” with civility and respect for one another is “right”(open to interpretation) and just and not the “kumbaya” way.

          Not impossible, but requires representatives who are ethical and honest about who they are and what core values they pledge to always prioritize in their decision-making process. Yes those values are difficult to find in todays representatives because of the mind-boggling sums of cash over which they have been granted custodianship.
