Using budget gimmicks...the U.S. House of Representative tax plan will ultimately cost the federal government $1.4 trillion over 10 years. How dare Republicans attempt to unshackle the producer! In a welfare state...the producer is enslaved...the product of labor grabbed...and...never is there any discussion about liberation...not ever.
Instead of telling the world that government spending is to be reduced mightily...the Republicans are writing a tepid tax cut that is gimmick-packed so that they might pass it under the budget reconciliation process which requires only 51 votes. Why McConnell didn't eliminate the bill-locking filibuster and thereby avoid this barrier won't be known for decades to come.
While the freedom-hating MASS MEDIA won't like it...the Republicans need to scrap the tax cut as written...and...write a tax bill actually deletes taxes and leave the gimmick-route for the freedom-hating Democrats to propose. To do as much they'll need to delete the filibuster-rule so that Democrats can be side-stepped, (WSJ A-17;11-09-17).
