Tax Reform

2017 Tax cuts toon by Branco

Stilton was in fine form:

Despite the good the tax reform plan might do for their voters, Democrats are unanimously opposed because some cuts go to those who pay the vast majority of taxes (the Evil Rich, who should more properly be hung like piñatas and beaten with sticks until they explode in a shower of bloodstained wealth) and other cuts go to corporations to encourage them to produce more employment. And if there’s one thing Democrats hate, it’s jobs.

On Monday, Nancy Pelosi, who has previously praised unemployment for giving people the free time to become artists, writers, philosophers, or meth addicts, was scheduled to speak before a huge rally of angry anti-tax reform protesters. Hilariously, so few people showed up (about two dozen) that Pelosi simply blew off the protesters – perhaps to spend time with her accountant figuring out how the new tax rates will affect middle-class taxpayers like her who have approximately $200 million in assets thanks to “putting a little aside each month” and clipping coupons.

Democrats are universally against the tax reform simply because Republicans, and particularly Donald Trump, are for it. Because the last thing they want to see for the next three years is America and Americans (of all economic levels) succeeding.

    Rosie O’Donnell did one of her usual calm and reasoned political commentaries on Twitter, by which I mean, of course, that she went completely ALL CAPS MOON BAT CRAZY and LITERALLY offered to “give 2 million dollars to senator susan collins and 2 million to senator jeff flake if they vote NO” on the tax bill.

    A number of Tweeters pointed out to her that bribery and attempted bribery are illegal, but this was my favorite: “This is actually illegal, but luckily for Rosie all of the people who could prosecute her for this were already killed when the FCC repealed Net Neutrality rules.”
