A tax cut from 39.6% to 35% doesn't sound like much,
but when it deals with hundreds of millions of dollars it
adds up. Our non-job creators don't need the money.
They already control enough of the wealth to prevent
the economy from ever getting any better.

Johnny Weeper- Of- The- House Boner .......... don't judge us on legislation we pass, judge us on legislation we don't pass.

And this fairy tale is another one.

Anyway, these boys are again too busy repealing ObamaCare - for the 50th unsuccessful time.

If this boy Camp really wants to do us all a favor - tell him to "pull a Plain" - and quit.

16 % ARE ON WELFARE AND DESTITUTE ,32% BARELY enought to live on...thats 48%. the only tax lowering is MEANINGLESS for 48 percent.THE HIGHER BRACKET WERE LOWERED ,NOTHING ELSE. and even if you pay no federal tax.. THE STATE AND COUNTY TAXES arent lower ,ARE HIGHER...... "lower taxes" is for those that are math challenged, cant add, and dont know that TAXATION IS THE BIGGEST AND ONLY BUSINESS IN THE COUNTRY... EVERYTHING ELSE IS part of a "MONOPOLY GAME".
