Many here have always tried to tell the readers here that the GOP are basically tools of the wealthy class.

The analysis of their tax plan by impartial analysts have stated the plan is a sop to the rich and now the GOP have basically admitted this



The report found that the bulk of the benefits from the GOP tax bill would go toward wealthier Americans. The report also found that by 2027, 28% of Americans would see their taxes increase, relative to current law.


www.businessinsider.com...



“The most excited group out there are big CEOs, about our tax plan,” Gary Cohn, the leading White House economic adviser and former chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs, said in an interview with CNBC on Thursday.

My donors are basically saying, ‘Get it done or don’t ever call me again,’” Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), himself a millionaire, said on Tuesday.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told reporters on Thursday that a failure to pass tax reform would fracture the Republican Party and lead to more far-right wing primary challengers. “The financial contributions will stop,” he added.

“Representative Chris Collins confessed that donors are telling him to cut their taxes ‘or don’t ever call again,’” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) tweeted. “That’s why this bill raises taxes on middle class families.”

Lies.

If we cut the Corp tax rate jobs will flow in like never before, and then the great paying jobs will employ the multitudes. (sarc)

Admissions like these have the dembs wetting their pants while doing a happy dance in anticipation of the midterms.

No wonder so many Republicans are retiring early and simply bailing out.

As well as cutting salaried overtime pay for workers, I'm really not sure how anyone could consider the Trump administration as being anything but establishment.

Kind of off topic, but I haven't seen many threads on ATS about the tax plan. I, however, have seen the continuous Hillary Clinton threads.

Wonder why that is?

I think the dems voters have a real chance with the likes of Sanders. But the Dem leaders defecated on all their mindless followers that just rolled over and showed their genitals in a submissive pose like good little mongrels.

I think we would have seen a very different outcome if the Dems+Hillary would not have rigged the election.

100% agree.

And if the dems were trying to pass the same goat screw mess, it would be the same situation. Something called the ACA proves this.

Is it okay for Roy Moore to do what he did while Anthony Wiener goes to jail?

Can't we just agree if someone breaks the law they should go to prison. Thanks.

The ACA was the compromise and is Bob Dole Republican plan from the 90s. The Dems wanted single payer but the Dems always cave in and compromise. This why practically ALL the Democrats were thrown out of office in 2016.

Republicans never have any real reason for even being in politics other than to protect the wealth of the elite.

They do nothing while in office but stop the congress from raising their taxes and try everything in their power to cut their taxes and do favors for the wealthy. That’s all they do and all they ever have done.

There is not one societal innovation or progress for the middle class or poor class that the GOP has EVER done.

All they do is play the part of the reactionary force protecting the interests of the rich

They have no humanitarian interests in being in congress. It’s all love and protect the rich and watch the poor and middle class from taking our tax money to progress the country

All the GOP congressmen who are leaving watch where they go---it’s time for their payoff for serving loyally the rich and powerful!

BY BY SUCKERS WHO PUT ME IN OFFICE—THANK YOU


Their leaving because its time for the big payoff: a big time high paying job with a lobbyist firm paying in the millions a year at least. High paying job with an insider white shoe law firm in the millions. Million dollar job with a think tank. Million dollar job with a big time Wall street firm. Easy no show cushy job at some conservative university. Be put on 10’s of boards of directors of major corporate companies, just sitting there once a month and pulling in hundreds of thousands of dollars to just smile and show their faces.

Their set for life...

btw this is both parties, its just the GOP are the most obvious in their vast greed and unlike some of the dems don't want to do anything for the poor and middle class.

…And just like supine sheep going to slaughter we the people accept this running criminal bribery enterprise at the head of our governmental apparatus.

IF we were so inclined we would shut this down in a week.

Here a rundown on the millionaires club we call congress

time.com...

The Center for Responsive Politics analyzed the personal financial disclosure data from 2012 of the 534 current members of Congress and found that, for the first time, more than half had an average net worth of $1 million or more: 268 to be exact, up from 257 the year earlier. The median for congressional Democrats was $1.04 million and, for Republicans, $1 million even.

Money corrupts. Street people would have to lick the same donors boots for the money to run for any office. Corporations are people too, extremely rich and powerful enough to buy our democracy and keep it all for themselves.

Because Trump said so. And he never lies and is smarter than everyone.

One very simple and effective way to stop this is to end the personal income tax on earned income, which enables and empowers the corporations and congress critters to play us against the "big boys," and of course we always lose...

Take earned income out of the equation -- the fruits of our own labor and sweat and blood -- and we can no longer be used as pawns to be sacrificed on the altar of greed and avarice. Nothing good can come from taking from the poor to give to the rich.
