How’s about an early Christmas present, folks? Late last night, the Senate finally got off their lumpy posteriors and did some legislating. That tax reform bill the Republicans have been hyping? It’s about to be on its way to Trump’s desk. Yes, really.
The votes are in, and the ayes have it. After a marathon evening of debating and considering amendments, the US Senate has approved the GOP’s tax reform bill, which would simplify the tax code and cut taxes for the vast majority of American households, small businesses and corporations. Every Republican voted yes, except for Tennessee’s Bob Corker. Democrats uniformly voted no. This is a big legislative victory for the GOP, which overcame a great deal of ferocious opposition — much of it rooted in misinformation — to pass the legislation.
I get to keep more monies?! Huzzah!
But wait, that’s not all they passed.
Senate Republicans have approved the repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate as part of their tax-cut bill, a major step toward ending an unpopular part of the health-care law.
So, the raping we get from the tax man will be gentler AND there’s no more gun to our head, forcing us to buy crap insurance? It’s a Christmas miracle!
This will set off a chain reaction of awesomeness. We’ll have more money to spend. We’ll give it to businesses in exchange for products. They’ll grow bigger. We’ll live larger. The government will still rake in enough revenue to keep the lights on. Everyone wins!
Leftist sourpusses are no doubt shouting “Bah, Humbug” about right now. They’d prefer the holidays to be a more somber time. Sucks to be them. The economy is booming like the subwoofer on a crack dealer’s Chevy Caprice. “Merry Christmas” is no longer verboten in the White House.
This tax reform victory is the proverbial cherry atop a terrific year. Here’s to many more.
