They seem all a buch of BIG CRYING LIARS...... THER' S A WOLF OVER THERE,!

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/12/2/16724978/gop-tax-bill-deficit-debt-fraud Since regaining power in January, congressional Republicans have embarked on a relentless campaign of proving themselves pure nihilists. The GOP spent the Obama years in a frenzy over debt and deficits. Now they are passing a tax bill that will add trillions to the national debt, complete with budget gimmicks that, if they play out the way Republicans are publicly hoping they will play out, will lead to an even higher price tag. That bill includes repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s individual mandate without any replacement — a policy that will break Republican promises to stabilize insurance markets, lower premiums, and ensure more affordable and widespread health coverage.

The nihilism extends to process too. Republicans complained bitterly during the Obama administration that Democrats weren’t holding enough hearings, that they weren’t leaving sufficient time to read final bill text, that they were passing important legislation on party-line votes, that they were using the budget reconciliation process improperly. Now they are passing sweeping tax reform through the budget reconciliation process with no hearings, no effort at bipartisan compromise, and bill text that was not made public until hours before the final vote. In a darkly comic twist, changes were handwritten into the legislation in the final hours:

class and poor have seen meager gains. Since the mid-20th century, the top 1 percent have more than doubled their share of the nation’s income, from less than 10 percent to more than 20 percent.

Donald Trump said he was going fix it — that he would represent the forgotten men and women, the people who had been left behind in this widening of income inequality.

But the tax overhaul his Republican Party passed through the Senate early Saturday morning would make America’s income inequality worse. Maybe a lot worse, economists say.

“The bill is investing heavily in the wealthy and their children — by boosting the value of their stock portfolios, creating new loopholes for them to avoid tax on their labor income, and cutting taxes on massive inheritances,” Lily Batchelder, a New York University professor who worked as an economist under President Barack Obama, said. “At the same time, it leaves low- and middle-income workers with even fewer resources to invest in their children, and increases the number of Americans without health insurance.”

The Public has got to fight has got to continue the fight that they finally took up in battling the rethuglican wealth care health care that has for the moment stopped that load of crap.

So tweeted in the hope of reaching some of this public that have found their feet:

Sociopaths, Psychopaths, Narcissists, Greedy & Insane r they who currently control those in t majority government office that cater 2 them the wealthy few!

So how sick are those in office @GOP @SenateGOP @HouseGOP that cater 2 that kind of depravity? https://twitter.com/DKAtoday/status/936987869364842496

I feel the worst is that we have left the children rubbish and problems, and not dealt with the crap we were shoveled and allowed to continue.

We were not the greatest generation .... Sad for my grandkids

It looks like Herr Sumpf has forgluttoned "the people who had been left behind in this widening of income inequality." He didn't forget because he's running out of time in Office so he must show his true colors before he is jailed. Deception works for "a time, and a time and a half," so says the Bible. "There is gnashing of teeth in the dark, for he knows that his time is short."

@8:44: "See in this world, there's two kinds of people, my friend - those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig." "Do you see what I see?" "A Child, a Child, shivers in the cold. Let us bring Him silver and gold."

Unsurprisingly, the Mammonites are duplicitous as always and love turkeys for Christmas, too. Their crying about the debt and deficit was just a ruse for obstructing Keynesian stimulative recovery of the economy in order to gain partisan power by blaming the Retard-I-Can'ts-prolonged bad economy on the ruling party. We certainly have Idiots amongst us who still believe that Herr Sumpf's magical pawing helped clean up the economy. I tell you FrisCo restraint is too preoccupied with pawing at our roll of good ol' American toilet tissue paper ("Novus Ordo Seclorum"). FrisCo restraint doesn't work as well as ViiRu the Cat does, who uses up the Entire roll of good ol' American toilet tissue paper ("Don't leave home without it!" - a bowl of water may not suffice).
