Your tax cut is funded by deficit financing. It will be paid for all of us and our kids as we shoulder the increased public debt for years to come. Enjoy your government handout.

Wow they are sounding like the Democrats in CA. Tax, tax, tax.

I think it may not get through the Senate. There is already one definite "no", another senator has made remarks that don't sound like "yes" will be forth coming at this point.
I am pretty sure I will pay less Federal tax if this tax bill becomes law. The amount saved would not be great. But, I don't think the numbers add up. What I mean is I think there definite probability of increased borrowing under this tax plan.

Yea R Hunter, Duncan CA 50th

We Californians need to remember this in 2018.
What they voted for is the GOP because they forgot that they are supposed to represent the voters in their districts, not the GOP. I'm sure there was some bullying going on behind the scenes to persuade them to vote the way they did. I'm not really a fan of the three that voted no, but I will give them credit for representing the voters ahead of the self-serving interests of the GOP. That's the way it is supposed to work.

Thank you!

BTW, don't all Californians want to pay ever more taxes? Shame on you for not wanting to pay your fair share.
