Are Senate Slaggards and McConnell At It Again and Showing Signs of Stalling On Another Key Issue



Senate Slaggards and McConnell At It Again

First they can’t seem to get motivated to approve President Trump’s appointees. Then they can’t make up their minds on Obamacare OR any other thing that has made it into their hands to review. (over a hundred bills are stalled from HR) NOW they can’t seem to get a TAX Change Bill concerning corporate tax – which happens to be a key element – done? Or is this just a “false start” issue?


Senate to delay corporate tax cut, breaking with Trump and House

The Hill

November 9, 2017

Senate Republicans plan to propose delaying a cut in the corporate tax rate until 2019, according to a GOP senator.

Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) also said the individual mandate will not be repealed as part of the Senate tax overhaul proposal expected to be released Thursday.

The proposal breaks with President Trump’s preference that a corporate tax cut be put in place immediately. The House’s tax-reform legislation proposes lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent in 2018.

Republicans are seeking to get a bill to President Trump’s desk by Christmas.

A House panel could report its version out of committee on Thursday, and that measure could get a vote in the full chamber next week.

Well, hearing Paul Ryan’s version of the coming days on tax reform reassures me tremendously. (NOT) I swear the Senate needs to take either an enema to clear up their sluggish system OR B-12 because the old farts need more energy.

    The senate is OWNED by special interests– you can’t expect them to do ANYTHING but masturbate in their closets!

    Good Point…chalk one up to Wise Owl, lol

    Senate totally in need of new leadership. McConnell, Cornyn and Co. just don’t cut it. McConnell so interested in maintaining the country club atmosphere in the senate and to hell with the American people. To McConnell & Co., either lead, follow or get the hell out of way. The man has been there 30 years and suffers from brain farts.

      lol I read foam there instead of fart….snark just viewed Terry’s liberal scream videos , the tears and screams simply deluged my reading memory I guess.
      yes we do BUT Be sure all over the age of 60 are removed first — you know at one time Germany had a mandatory 55 retirement age…maybe we need to do the same for Senate? average age in senate right now is 63– that should cover the globalists/RINOS, don’t you think?

      • Whitetop says:

        Foamy farts don’t conjure up a pretty picture.
        Commercial airline pilots are required to retire at 60 so why shouldn’t elected servants? After all I think flying w/a 65 year old pilot is less dangerous than a 65 yr old making legislation.
        Ryan and his shit eating grin convinces me the fix is in to screw the American taxpayers again. If members of congress were so great at keeping their promises why isn’t Obamacare in the trash heap by now?

    I don’t believe a friggin word coming from either Ryan or McConnell. Both have been virulent anti-Trumpers since day one. Now when reelection is on the horizon the talk gets tough. Yeah, right.

  5. Shar says:

    Nox, I totally agree. I don’t think they care if they lose the House in 2018. They want DJT out period. As far as keeping promises I say bull. We still have the unaffordable care act. In the end DJT will out smart the weaklings.

      I sincerely hope he does Shar. Pulling this off in the middle of an obvious coup is going to take brass knuckles and a corp of seasoned military
