The Republican tax scam that is about to to pass the Senate stands to enrich President Trump to the tune of $1 billion, with special provisions for real estate magnates such as himself, but he says, “It’s not good for me. Believe me.”


Today, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated the president’s flagrant lie in front of the press pool, saying, “It likely will, on the personal side, it could cost the president a lot of money.”

Twitter was not buying the administration’s malarkey.  Iconic singer-actress Bette Midler immediately fired back, saying that the White House lies comprise a “colossal fraud.”

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich lambasted the shameless Republican con job, saying, “Never before in American history has this much money been transferred from the poor and middle class to the rich . . . .”

The massive redistribution of wealth the kleptocratic Republicans are in the process of perpetrating today will defy the core principle conservatives have always said they believe in, fiscal conservatism, by raising the national debt, which is already greater than the GDP, by up to $2.7 trillion.

83% of the revenue the tax cuts generate will go to the wealthiest 1% of the country and 63% will go to the top 0.1%.

Meanwhile, it effectively repeals Obamacare, skimps on the child tax credit, removes deductions for teachers who buy their own school supplies, inexplicably erodes reproductive rights, raises taxes on 50% of Americans, and generally serves as a big old Grinch delivery system  for the average Joe this Christmas.

Even Republican Senators like Texas Republican John Cornyn have admitted to adding provisions that enrich their colleagues, like Tennessee Senator Bob Corker, in order to buy enough votes to pass the bill, despite its unconscionable price tag.

On the heels of endorsing and funding a losing Alabama Senate candidate who was credibly accused by numerous women of child molestation, the 2017 Republican Party is now attempting to cement its legacy as the worst cohort in American history by stealing from working people at Christmas.

American voters will remember the Republicans’ abandonment of all morality and their blatant looting of public coffers when we go to the polls in 2018 and 2020.  We must bang the drum daily to ensure Republican lies don’t make us forget.
