This is unfracken believable in my 67 years


This is unfracken believable in my 67 years. The biggest bill in history with hand written notes and no time allowed to even read it! Has written changes from lobbyists in the margins. The got it before Dem Senators at last minute. What are they afraid of?

The bill was supposed to be voted on yesterday, then postponed till 11 A.M. today, Now its approaching 10 PM. And NO VOTE. It appears to be going up in flames. Mitch McConnell claims to have the votes needed. But, I think he is bluffing.

    I respect discussion, but unless we agree to the same facts, odds of compromise is impossible. That is a huge problem across this country, and will result in a decline of democracy unless addressed by individuals and leaders.

    I just posted a perspective that this is far more than a tax cut. It’s opinion not provable fact, but is based on considerable experience.

    Actually Julian, on mathematical terms, it would not be “fewer” but less as in less than or greater than in numerical comparison based on symbols <>

And, there’s this. I remember when the Republicans really were the party of fiscal responsibility. That horse has clearly left the barn.
