Top 5 Most Ridiculous Reactions To Congress Passing Tax Bills
November 4, 2017
At 2 a.m. Saturday morning, America, democracy, and all the “poor” people died, at least to hear the media and liberals tell it. In reality, the Senate barreled toward passing one of the most significant tax reforms in three decades, passing their version by a sliver, 51-49.
The bill is conventional in that it’s neither the best thing since legislation began, nor the death knell of all humanity. But that didn’t stop liberals from acting like Republicans had choked them by pushing a 479-page bill down their throats. Here are the most ridiculous reactions we’ve seen so far.
1. GOP Is Literally Killing People By Passing a Tax Bill
The tax bills roll back several aspects of the current tax code, eliminating some major tax preferences and limiting others, like the state and local tax deduction. In its current form, the bill drops the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 20 percent, which is incredible.”
2. It’s Vile to Let People Keep More of Their Earnings
Under both bills, middle class and rich people will pay less in taxes. This is only a problem if you believe it’s fair to tax them at much higher rates than the rest of the country. Really, breaks for them are a much-deserved respite, as such folks have been paying the most income taxes for decades.
3. Claiming Jesus Would Hate This Bill
One of the most absurd reactions came from liberals who tout abortion as a pillar of their party yet claim this tax bill doesn’t represent Jesus’ values. It appears that liberals only pull out Jesus’ teachings when it’s a convenient talking point, and ignore him on other points, such as the personhood of the unborn and the immorality of theft.
4. Taking Less of People’s Earnings Is ‘Theft’
It’s not clear how freeing up some of the hard-earned cash Americans who fall into specific tax brackets earn robs other people of funds, but according to some people, it does. So either math is hard or it’s just easier to spew nonsense than understand basic economics. The tax bill is a lot of things, and it certainly isn’t perfect, but thievery is an overdramatic and just plain false charge.
5. We’re No Longer A Democracy Because Representatives Passed Bills
For the party that hardly seems to understand what democracy, means let alone appreciate this form of government, it’s bizarre to see liberals insist that duly elected representatives passing a bill with far fewer shenanigans than passing the sacrosanct Obamacare is somehow undemocratic.
Read the entire article HERE. It is well worth the read. Be prepared to laugh.
After 71 amendments, a lot of posturing and complaining, H.R.1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed the House on November 16 by 227 Yeas and 205 Nays. On December 2 in the wee hours of the morning, the Senate got its version through the vote by 51 Yeas and 49 Nays. Corker was the single Republican Nay in the Senate otherwise it was strictly along party lines.
So now the push begins on reconciling the two bills and coming up with a finished version. There is still hope that it could be finished before Christmas.
Until the ink is dry on the bill, this isn’t totally over but again we are seeing the toll of the Liberty Bell signaling that conservatives and patriots have had their voices heard. Now we have to hope that the final Tax Bill reflects our best interests.
Of course, it has been well worth seeing the theatrical show put on by the Democrats. And hey, it was FREE. Thank goodness because I wouldn’t have paid a sow’s ear to sit in the audience.
