While Republicans talk tax reduction, the Left will hammer them with the tired refrain of “tax breaks for the rich”. Of course, media outlets will join the Dems in their clarion call and the street anarchists will carry out demonstrations (riots) in support of Democrats. Real debate will be hard to come by. Trump will continue tweeting crap and should Putin and Trump fart while being in the same room it will be called collaboration/collusion and a topic calling for investigation.
With a real Republican majority in the Senate of only 52 (less RINOs), the weak leadership of McConnell and Ryan and the level of dissention evident among Republicans, meaningful tax cuts might be hard to come by. Trump will need to stump on tax cuts, taking the case for cuts directly and in person to the American people in a way he failed to do on repeal/replace. Cuts will need to be passed in Congress and the bill signed by Trump before Thanksgiving for the cuts to be retroactive to Jan 1st of 2017 and the effects felt before the mid-term elections in November 2018.
Can Republicans deliver on meaningful tax cuts? I’m not holding my breath.
My suggestion: “Primary” as many RINOs as you can in 2018. If Trump won’t drain the swamp, we had damn sure better make an effort to do so.
That said, I don’t believe a damn thing any of our leaders say. They are all full of crap. Congress will continue to go out on “recess”, Trump will remain politically inept and Democrats are nuts. Considering the domestic and foreign backdrop against which the current melodrama is playing out, we are in deep Shiite.
One final shot: Repubs claim a need to continually recess so they might go back home in order to meet with their constituents and receive “feedback”. They don’t understand how pissed their voters are? How freakin’ stupid and out of touch can these fools be?
