List of Republican Senators who voted in favor tax deform bill

By Lynda Carson — November 29, 2017

On November 29, 2017, 48 Democrats voted against the GOP’s disastrous tax bill up for consideration that screws the poor and middle class by proposing $1.5 Trillion in tax cuts for the filthy rich.

In contrast, 52 Republicans voted in favor of begining a period of debate for the despicable tax bill that favors the rich. A debate that may last up to 20 hours. A final vote on the legislation will occur after debate, and a series of votes on amendments. The House and Senate will have to reconcile the differences between the two competing tax bills, before a final vote occurs.

For what these despicable Senate corporate myrmidons are proposing to do to the American people on behalf of the filthy rich, it appears that if they got what they deserved, they may be 6 feet under someday if the American public ever got their hands on them.

I am not advocating any kind of violence towards anyone. But considering what has happened to Mayor Harvey Milk, President Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Huey Long, Gabby Giffords, President Abe Lincoln, President James Garfield, President William McKinley, including many other American politicians that have been shot, it appears that when riled up, the gun manufacturers have made it so easy for anyone to get guns, that the American public does not have any qualms about shooting or killing politicians that have pissed them off. Indeed, considering that around 500 people were shot in Las Vegas recently, the gun manufacturers have contributed to these very dangerous times.

What the despicable GOP is doing to the American public with their disastrous tax deform bill that favors the filthy rich is totally insane, unacceptable, and unreasonable.

Meanwhile, the GOP’s racist mad dog commander in chief made global headlines today by retweeting some racist anti-Muslim videos earlier. Once again, Donald Trump reminded us that he is not mentally fit to be president. As recent as November 27, the ignorant racist dog President Donad Trump used a Native American slur by calling Senator Elizabeth Warren, Pocahontas, while honoring Native Americans that were standing in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson, the former racist president who had thousands of Native Americans slaughtered while he was in office.

That would be comparable to honoring a group of Jews in front of a portrait of Hitler.

These are insane times.
