Paul Ryan was so giddy about the tax cut that he tweeted:

"A secretary at a public high school in Lancaster, PA, said she was pleasantly surprised her pay went up $1.50 a week ... she said [that] will more than cover her Costco membership for the year." He later deleted the tweet.

Thanks GOP!

Dems fight to give out more "free stuff" than we could ever possibly count. I know it's hard to understand for some but tax cuts aren't giving away free stuff so you don't have to "pay" for a tax cut, it just means the government is taking less of our hard earned tax dollars from us. Republicans are just as bad as Dems when it comes to cutting spending, that's where the true issue lies.

I'm not understanding how any of this is involved in the left attacking a local Houston businessman for taking a picture with the attorney general.

So how much of a tax cut did your family get? How much additional crumbs do you get to keep every week/month? I've never gotten an additional $4K back in a year under a Dem administration, if anything my taxes have gone up.

What does any of this have to do with the owner of a local Houston eating establishment taking a photo with our Attorney General? Most of us on the conservative side of the isle dislike Jeff Sessions on a massive scale because he's a pansy who needs to stand up to the Dems but I'm not calling for a boycott against anyone.
