    The GOP is a dog shit party full of gutless, worthless leadership.

    Tax reform is easy.

    Finding politicians with the spine and balls to resist special interests from bribing them into putting carve-outs in the tax code for them is what is damned near impossible.

    The only reason this is happening is because the rubes aren't paying attention. Which is just how our American Politboro and their propagandists like it.

    Yeah. The only ones enthused are the Freedom Caucus, who have embraced deficits for Trump. I dunno. Trump's obviously a disaster in terms of having no core beliefs (aside from ego) ... even W had a better sense of his view of govt. But we started out with a "vision" to lower rates at least on workers, and paying for it by ending tax deductions that went more to the wealthy. THAT was what Bannon campaigned upon.

    But now we're ending the estate tax - which might be a good thing if the revenue was raised in a neutral manner, but as its proposed has absolutely nothing to do with income tax reform beyond being a Yuuuge boon to the 1% - and ending state tax deduction that directly target blue states and actually hurt workers.

    McConnell is just a vote counter. He doesn't even pretend to lead beyond giving protection to any goper senator who has to OH MY GOD THE HORROR cast a vote that might make someone mad. Ryan .... has to push anything that might get through the House with just gop votes.

    It's just no way to try and run a republic. And the effect of trying is that the dems are not going to do a single helpful thing. Of course Obama jammed Obamacare through. But McConnell preserved his precious 5 seat maj in the Court, so I'd think may he could just get the fuck over it. But Trump won't steadfastly stand behind anything ... beyond protecting his base so they'll blow him.

    guess not, maybe I should have voted for her.

    GOP F'ups are because Clinton and the media totally overpower their weak ass and make them screw up 24/7.

    The GOP is debating whether tripling the deficit like Reagan is politically worth being able to say they passed tax reform.
