House GOP Passes Tax Reform 2.0

With everyone’s attention seemingly focused on the circus surrounding Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, GOP House members were busy passing Tax Reform 2.0. On Friday, House Republicans, joined by three Democrats, passed the bill by a vote of 220-191. The legislation, should it pass the Senate (which will be a tall order), makes permanent the tax cuts established by last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

As usual, Democrats came out complaining that the legislation favored the rich. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lamented, “The GOP’s priorities have been laid bare. How can we milk the public, exploit the taxpayer by adding to the wealth of the wealthiest 1%?”

Ironically, it has been Democrats who are most guilty in seeking to carve out tax breaks for the wealthy.

Ironically the dumbocrat law makers are the ones who benefit the most since they're all millionaires.

Now let's improve the so called affordable care act. Insurance is still not affordable. And dems are going to push the message once Kavanaugh is appointed as a Supreme Court Justice. Plenty of voters out there unable to pay deductibles and co-pays and the dems are going after their votes.
