|Let's defeat the taxman this year!|
But no matter what the Republicans do or say, the timeworn mantra of the democrats is always class warfare. Envy drives the left. Tax reform is only going to benefit the "rich" they say. They always say that. It is ridiculous. Just like California, the tax system is dependent on those that are "rich" and the rest of the folks get a free pass on most of the confiscation of their money. At the federal level, the top 10% of the taxpayers pay 70% of all taxes. Same in California at the state level. How is that fair? And why should those that pay the bulk of the taxes not get a break anyway? Cut spending!
Some say we may see a vote today from the US Senate on the bill. If we get all the R's to say yes the vote will be 52-48. And the two leftwingnuts called "independents" will be part of the NO. Not one democrat wants to help the middle-class workers of America keep their own money. These leftwing democrats have moved so close to communist thinking it is truly scary. They used to worry and fight for the middle class. Now they have abandoned them altogether. They represent the poor, uneducated and illegal apparently. To hell with the middle class of America. So maybe this is a good thing. The middle class can give the democrats the middle finger and get on the Patriotic Train of the "right".
Let us see how it goes today. Maybe there will be an epiphany by the hardworking middle class that the Republicans have their back. I hope so. I have fought against overreaching government all my life and it sure would be nice to have some help. By rejecting the middle class, the democrats have opened a huge opportunity to make the Republicans the party in power for another full generation.
