GOP Releases All 479 Pages Of The Tax Reform Bill - "Vote-A-Rama" Begins

The Senate tax bill is headed for a potentially unlimited series of decisions on possible amendments - known as “vote-a-rama” - as the full text of the revised bill has just been released.

As Bloomberg reports, it’s unclear how long that process might take, though we do note that unlike Obamacare, Senators will at least get to see what's in the bill before they vote on it.

Democrats could spend hours offering numerous amendments meant to highlight any flaws they believe the bill contains.

WTF happened to the republican party that wanted smaller gov? These pieces of shit can't find ONE THING to cut.

It truly is a red/blue one party system now. DC is just a flea market for selling our representation to the highest bidding corp or foreign gov. Steal everything you can and who gives a shit about the decay everywhere in plain sight.

And their employees in the form of EMPLOYER taxes.  EMPLOYEES pay corporate taxes as well.  An oil tank cannot pay taxes.  A forklift cannot pay taxes.  An admin building cannot pay taxes.  Only employees, customers, and owners pay corporate taxes. You would have a Giant raise if corporate taxes are cut.  Assuming management passes that along to you and not to the owners(stockholders).

479 PAGES????????????

That's bigger than a Charles Dickens novel FFS!!!

The idea that a 'bought & paid-for', "we gotta pass it to see whats in it", dementia-ridden CONgress will be meticulously & judiciously reviewing such a weighty tome of legalese gobbledygook - with the best interests of the tax-extorted wage-slave in mind - is, it goes without saying, an exercise in utter delusion to the Nth degree - with "N" asymtotically approaching infinity!

The Washington Circus wants to baffle us with bullshit. If anything does come out of all their promises we should have very low expectations as to the quality of reform and whether it will really benefit our country over time by stimulating economic growth. It is quite naive to think legislators polarized and unable to agree upon anything can tackle an issue as complex and divisive as tax reform.The article below delves into why we should lower our expectations.http://Tax Bill If Passed Will Fall Very Short Of Promises .htm

One thing's for sure:

While J6P is getting his neck wrung like a chicken, there'll be big enuf loopholes to drive a 5-lane highway of corporate & bankster stretch-limos thru - in each direction!
