GOP Tax Plan

I’d like to comment on the new Republican tax plan, but no one has seen it yet. Apparently the strategy this time is to pass it before anyone has a chance to figure out what is in it.

Why? Because the Republican big donors want their ROI. For forty years they have been funding the ascent of the Republican party so that when the party finally takes over the government they can slash top taxes. Now they have the presidency and narrow congressional majorities. But they got there through gerrymandering, big money, and bait-and-switch campaign promises. So the only chance of passing deeply unpopular legislation is to ram it through before anyone can react. Welcome to American “democracy” in 2017.
