Poverty Is Over! So Why Are Republicans So Quiet About Their Chief Economic Accomplishment?

Poverty Is Over! So Why Are Republicans So Quiet About Their Chief Economic Accomplishment?

Jim Hightower

Listen ... Can you hear it? Listen to the eerie "sound of silence" from the Trumpeteers and congressional Republicans who so loudly cheered themselves just a year ago for bestowing a trillion-dollar tax giveaway on corporate elites.

Cage fight idea for TV:

Pit dollars against an equal amount of dollars. There would be plenty of time for commercials as the bouts wouldn’t even need an egg timer.

The uber rich fuckers probably don’t even know the date 1789. I suggest that we cap the Secret Service pay at $15/hr.


Republicans Chief Economic Accomplishment:

Stealing $1.5 Trillion From The American People.


we will fast become a third world country if we continue to let these theatrics to continue. look at the homeless problem and the water problem. these things go before a fall for the “normal” people but the rich continue on their merry way

No worries. Thanks to Hair Furor we now know how to use the government to punish individuals, companies and our friends. Can’t wait til it’s our turn at bat. Then we take that bat and walk up to the pitcher and beat the shit out of him before slapping a 50% tax on the rich, cutting defense by 50% - there - easy peezie. Then we can free the children from their concentration camps and start locking up the traitors. They will be fixing our roads, picking our produce, making our burgers and trying to be de-programmed and re-educated into actual Americans instead of Putin-Americans. Or not. If not there’s always a pot hole needing repairs.

No they won’t.
Unless they want to take turns serving each other canapes at their own parties, fueling their own vehicles and all the other things they need people for. Nothing says fun like a room full of republican donors having a polonium tea party. There’s kind of an irony there that can be sussed out if you want.

We all knew it was a scam and still did nothing about this Bill passing into Law. Easy to blame a few con artists wihen millions of us watched it fly right over our stupid heads.

Why stop at 50% for the highest individual tax rates? Let’s put it back around the 75% or so then current in the Eisenhower years (that would be a true MAGA!!).

was as bad as any other 3rd world country he had ever seen!!

How can anyone expect them to understand or care when Trump says that he only got a small amount of money as a loan from his father? It was a mere million, that’s all. Don’t we all get a small amount of money as a loan from our fathers? Just a mere million?
