Sad.

He said he would cut taxes. He did that. Just because you socialists.do not comprehend basic economics and keep yelling that the sky is falling does not make it so.

The people who voted for him wanted him to push for a tax cut. He did that. But please, continue on w/ the attempt to spin this as a negitive. Maybe you can try and connect the tax to Russia too.

It doesn't make you look petty or anything.


Good job.
Thanks from Jimgorn

I will use it for all kinds of things. I am not sure how much ill be getting back. Sure I like a McDonalds cheeseburger once in a while. Love the fries. Lets say I get $50 more in my check every week from it. Sure I guess I could go to McDonalds and get a meal every single day for the next year. Probably I will want to switch it up and go to Subway or get some pizza some days. I sure won't be getting your vegan tofu meal. Ill leave that for you.

Who knows. One thing is for sure, if your team had their way everyone would give the government more of their earnings. Because the peasants cant be trusted to decide for themselves and stuff

It is a really good bill for average earners and it is a good bill for upper middle income earners.


So in other words, no I am not concerned about your characterization of the President and this tax cut. I like it and so will millions of others when they get the adjustment. Then they will realize that the liberal press and the democrat politicians have been moaning day and night about how terrible it is and all that is going to melt away.
I understand you are not concerned with the character of Trump. It's OK. I get it.

No you dont get it. His character is just fine. He is making good on his campaign promises. Next he is going to get democrats to agree to a bill that includes building a wall. Its going to be very entertaining. Ill take that kind of character over soft spoken race baiting and soft pedaled communism any day of the week.

Obama bowing to foreign leaders, now that was character! If only we could have that again.

Excuses should be coming in: 3, 2, 1......
I retired 7 years ago when 59 and my only income is SSA retirement. It is been at least two years since SSA has not given a COL on Jan.1. I hope Trump gives my COL back which Obama took away.
