Remember this con job?

“Trump came in there to the factory last December and blew smoke up our asses,” Brenda Darlene Battle, a twenty-five-year Carrier employee, said. “He wasn’t gonna save those jobs.”


So much special interest money trying to derail the bill.

He won't be able to save those jobs until fair trade is implemented.

what bill? the House bill? that was a non starter...Raising taxes on the people who pay the most taxes, and then going to ZERO on the estate tax is crazy.

I don't mind paying the same rate if I get the estate tax. Estate tax is bogus, because everyone sets up trusts to avoid the tax.

Buffet will pay no estate tax, but his heirs will control all the money.

If that were true, the Repubs wouldn't be using political capital on an unpopular idea...The Trust fund babies in Greenwich are hammering for a repeal. Hey Steve-O, Trump promised the voters in front of 90,000,000 people during a debate that he too, would get rid of carried interest....No dice, another lie bro....Maybe because half his cabinet pays carried interest. They pay 15%, I get crushed by the new tax bill to the tune of about $200,000...sounds fair.

No, no you'll probably pay a little more, but Prez T is bringing the brackets way up so you'll save there. I'm buying some more tax advantaged investments to ease the pain. You should too. I'm saving big on the AMT.
🤣
Best solution is to vote R in California....Trumps not stupid, neither are you.🤣

NOT TRUE.
35% goes from $417,000 to $260,000...Hard working tax payers who foot the FED bill are getting CRUSHED...I never thought I would see the day when Repubs were digging higher taxes, and Roy Moore and Louis C.K. had something in common.
AND NO CARRIED INTEREST! He promised to eliminate CARRIED INTEREST....Liar. In. Chief.

Democrats win back Albuquerque mayoral seat in a rout

Quote:
According to unofficial results, Keller beat Republican Albuquerque City Councilor Dan Lewis with 62 percent of the vote compared to 38 percent – results CBS Albuquerque affiliate KRQE called "a blowout" -- in a race that centered on the city's raising crime rates and its struggling economy. [...]

Keller told a packed room at Albuquerque's historic Andaluz Hotel his victory was a rejection of fear and "language that divided us" - a veiled jab at President Trump.

"We embraced inclusion. We embraced unity," said Keller, who will replace GOP Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry, who opted not to seek re-election.

Booker goes in on Roy Moore with epic Tweet



Quote:
U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., eviscerated Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore on Saturday, taking a jab at the Republican who is facing allegations that he pursued and sexually assaulted teenagers.

Booker said he wondered whether Senate pages would be safe from Moore should the GOP candidate -- backed by President Trump and the Republican National Committee -- win Tuesday's special election.
