I would argue that it is nowhere on the entire planet that you could find a bigger, more determined, and more dedicated bunch of liars than those politicians who operate under the banner of the Democrat Party and who continue to run roughshod over a segment of our population whose IQ, when added all together, would result in a collective IQ somewhere in the very lowest of single digits. That segment of the population who likes to so very proudly refer to themselves as Democrats. You know, you’ve seen them. They would be the ones with the idiotic little bumper-sticker, on whatever rolling piece of shit they happen to drive, that says, “Proud Democrat.”
And so it was then that shortly before the Senate passed the new tax cut bill 51-48, that we were witness to what was little more than an act of pure dishonesty when we heard from one of the more devoted leftists in his party as he made what was a rather bold prediction. You see, it was Sen. Chris Murphy, Democrat, who, in trying to pull off his best Nostradamus impersonation, actually predicted that Republicans “will probably lose the House and the Senate” in 2018 because of the Republican tax reform bill, and Murphy also said that “absolutely” the Democrats will try to overturn the tax legislation if they do regain control of Congress after the midterm elections.
It was one of MSNBC’s many resident Trump haters, Rachel Maddow, who asked Murphy this past Tuesday night, “If your prediction is right and Democrats do take the House and Senate after the midterm elections, do you think that Democrats would try to overturn this bill?” To which Murphy replied, “Absolutely!” Murphy then went on to say, “We have to, given the assault that’s occurring here, especially on the East and the West Coast. I would hope that we would take a look at the entirety of the bill. Listen, the corporations in my state, they wanted a corporate tax cut, but none of them were expecting to have the corporate tax rate dropped to 20 percent.”
Murphy said, “They would have been thrilled if they got the tax rate below 30 percent. And so there is plenty of room to go back into this bill to make up some money and return it to the middle class or the working class that’s losing out here. And went on to say, “And of course what we haven’t talked about is the repeal of the individual mandate which is going to increase everybody’s premiums by 10 percent, compounding every year. So that conveniently in year seven of this bill, your premiums will have doubled and your standard deduction will have gone back to its previous levels.” The same sort of gibberish we always hear from those on the left.
Naturally the Republicans disagree with Murphy’s blatantly ideological assessment of the new tax bill saying that it most certainly will deliver tax cuts to the middle class, and low-income people may end up paying no tax at all. And some higher-income earners in high-tax states who normally itemize deductions may end up paying more. And really, I think it says far more about the Democrats than it does the Republicans in that not one Democrat was willing to vote for this bill. Democrats want to do nothing that either makes or current president look good, or that might result in bringing our economy back to life after eight years of having a Democrat president.
And it was while speaking on ABC’s “Good Morning America” Wednesday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan said skeptics have been “hit on their TV screens” by confusing media coverage saying that the tax bill will benefit only the rich. Ryan said, “So I think when people actually see that instead of getting tax increases, they’re getting tax cuts; when they see the withholding tables changing in February and seeing more money in their paychecks; when they’re seeing the economic growth that will result from historic tax reform, I think minds are going to change, and I think people are going to change their view on this.”
If there is a change of who’s in charge of Congress next year, I disagree that this tax bill will be what brings it about. But that’s not to say that I am confident that come January 2019 it will be the Republicans who will still be running things. Because if the Republicans do come to lose control of Congress next year it will be because they decided to push forward in their quest for amnesty for those in this country illegally. That’s why they could lose. Meanwhile Murphy can make all the noise he wants to about overturning the recent tax cuts, because President Trump, who will be in office through 2020 would still have to sign it. And I just don’t see him doing that.
Murphy is nothing if not proof that the Democrats still refuse to admit that the tax revenue acquired by the government is OUR revenue. And it is not theirs to spend however they please. We the people earn that money by WORKING very hard for it. Despite all of this moron’s claims, the tax reform bill WILL come to benefit working class Americans when the economy booms as expected (and it will). And when that happens the chances of Democrats winning much of anything will decrease. I look forward to seeing their pitiful expressions the day after the mid-terms. The same expressions we saw from them when President Trump was declared the winner.
And while many on the left persist in making the claim that our current “booming economy” began in June 2009 during the Obummer era, that’s hardly the case. And it only serves to make all the more clear the alternate universe that they must be living in. How else could they be talking about an eight year stretch of time during which growth in the Gross Domestic Product never got over 2% as a “booming economy?” Or the eight year period during which the labor force participation rate stayed at its lowest level since the Great Depression? Or maybe the eight year period in which the Dow grew at only 3.6% per year? Booming? Hardly! It was considered anemic at best.
And all of the endless doom and gloom, heard from Democrats like Murphy, regarding the new tax bill is already being proven to be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of those very same Democrats. We’ve already begun to witness the effects that it will have on our economy, it’s going to take off. And when people start to see some extra money in their pay check, they will be blown away. And that’s really what has the Democrats terrified. They are always on the wrong side of tax reform because it peels away at their power. Let’s face it, there has never been a Democrat who didn’t get some level of enjoyment out of spending other people’s money.
Lastly, it is becoming very clear that the Democrats now think that a very large segment of Americans are pretty stupid and actually enjoy paying taxes that are too high. And since there is nothing that prevents one from paying more in taxes if they wish to, why is it that Democrats, or anyone on the left, never seems willing to do that? Democrats keep working against those things that would bolster this country and its citizens out of pure hatred of our President. People with any sense see what’s happening, the sham that Democrats are ‘working for their constituents’ has been exposed and could very well come back to bite them in their rather sizable butts.
