The whole deal with the tax plan of our insane POTUS was designed for one thing: They KNEW the ND would rise to 22 or more, they didn't give a shyte.
The real goal was to say 'since the ND is going through the roof (through no fault of our own), the only way we can deal with this is to cut entitlements, run SS into the ground, kill medicare and such but simultaneously give away trillions to corporate America and now the common folk are finding the tax cut was in fact not for them, most of them paying higher taxes.
The most cynical anti-American plan ever devised by those sickos.
Like the cynical bastards saying we will protect pre-existing conditions clauses in the ACA but at the same time coming out with dozens of lawsuits to kill that exact same thing.
The bottom line is the old man party of Republicans have one thing on their so-called minds, continuing in power no matter the cost to the country.
Suck up to corporations so they will continue the infinite money flow for re-elections and gerrymandering voting suppression to ensure their continued throat hold on American citizens whom they could give a shyte about.
