As Tuesday is the deadline to file your taxes, we note that it’s been 30 years since St. Ronnie started the trickle-down on us, and the Russian Usurper doesn’t have Ronnie’s mandate (Sad!), nor has he unveiled so much as a plan.
And as we saw in the Ryan-Trump take-away-your-healthcare abortion, Mr. Fart of the Deal couldn’t find his way out of a bag with his like-minded waterheads if he had a flashlight, and both hands to operate his Android Phone pre-set to Google Maps. Watching him try to rewrite the Tax Code when he has actual opposition should be pretty stellar entertainment, bigly.
So we bet that the Republicans will muster a corporate tax cut and probably another one for their real bosses (the CEOs), but it will have to go through some arcane reconciliation rule to pass in the dark of night (with amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell doing some hideous voodoo dance) and will not be actually a tax code rewrite.
Also taxes: Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets to demand the release of Trump’s returns, and Trump responded by twitter-twatting:
Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!
