The treasury secretary stood up and outright lied about the tax bill by saying only millionaires will pay more. His remarks are easily proven false, but there it is. Pretty much every millionaire will, in fact, pay less, while millions of middle class Americans making under $200K will pay more.

Does that make sense?

Yeah, who needs research?

Hey, if you have a private jet or run a golf course, you stand to save amazingly. If you don't, well - you're not really GOP constituent material, then, are you?

What Republican legislation has been suggested that was "good for the American economy/people"? Not this crap sandwich, for sure.

Not everyone who is wealthy is going to get a tax break if congress eliminates certain deductions. It really depends on how your wealth is structured and distributed.

That said, I don't care if the wealthy get a tax break or not. That's their money, not mine, and they didn't get it by stealing anything from me. I'm not obsessed with other peoples money.

They have my cousins in lockstep. They don't pay attention to facts at all. They like trumps style.

I don't have any idea what that has to do with my post. I was responding to this:

This is the most elite, self entitled administration that has ever existed in this Country. I really think these people think that they own America and can do exactly what they want.
