I like this part.
A net 33 percent of Democrats believe their taxes will rise,
Shouldn't they be praising Trump for that?

Am I the only one that see's the hipocracy when the Dems and Bernie supporters cry that the GOP tax plan may raise "their" taxes?
It's funny how they are always about raising taxes as long as it's not them having to pay more into the system that they use, and they use it at a much higher percentage rate I might add and have for decades.

No....the hypocrisy is definitely there.

Bob Corker was against the tax bill until a provision was written it that will be worth a cool 2 million in savings to him.

Now he's voting for it....HMMMM.... [-X

The system was designed for those in need, it's the ones who have taught it's a way of life through the Democratic Socialist mentality that keep their voters voting for free stuff regardless of the candidate that create the biggest issue.

The working poor and those on the "DOLE" obviously don't always vote Democrat.

I guess that depends on what you mean?
Do I think company's should be taxed higher? No, that only hurts the consumer, if a company writes a check at the end of the year for taxes, they didn't pay that the consumer payed that, that cost is factored into the products/services they sell.

I would like to see lobbying outlawed because all that does is allow company's to write legislation/regulation that favors big company's against any competition...That was the problem with Net Neutrality.

I think replacing income tax with consumption tax would be a possible solution, the poor would pay less and the rich would pay more and no one would be deterred from working and earning. Everyone in the country would be contributing to the systems we use and could be a way to a single payer/free market health care system.

The alt-right (teatards and trumptards) have gone off course of true conservationism.

Nationalist, fascist, fear mongers are not conservatives.

You are so clueless. Do you know the difference between static and dynamic?

Something to ponder.
Before the 07 crash the market had reached $14,000.00, during Obama's 8 years there was around 10 Trillion dollars pumped into the system, BTW that's tax payer money, that got the market bounce around $17.000.00, it took 4 years to get back to the 14,000 range.

So 8 years and 10 trillion the market gained $3,000.00 over it's peak.

Since Trump took office he has pumped $0.00 into the economy and in 1 year the market has gained $7,000.00.

Those who understand return on investment will get the point.

Two things:

1. It is more than likely that President Trump will preside over the biggest financial collapse since the Great Depression. He will, of course, be blamed for it, even though it was already an inevitability long before he announced his candidacy. Still, nothing he has done is going to avoid it or even lessen its severity. For that he'll bear a terrible responsibility.

2. All tax is theft.
