Let’s see if these cuckold bozos can get something done for once!
The House just passed the budget approved by the Senate. This gives Republicans the ability to move forward with their tax reform package.
The Senate-approved resolution passed the House narrowly on Tuesday, 216-212, with 20 Republicans voting no and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., even having to cast a rare vote to help ensure its passage.
The budget does not have the force of law and does not need President Trump’s signature. But it does formally authorize a process that will allow Republicans to write a tax bill that needs only 50 votes to pass the Senate, circumventing the threat of a filibuster from Democrats since Republicans hold 52 seats.
Republicans plan to release their tax bill next Wednesday, with a stated goal of passing it by the end of the year. After many legislative setbacks this year, including failure to deliver on their long-held promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, Trump and Republicans are hungry for a signature legislative victory ahead of the 2018 midterms.
From a political standpoint, this was an important vote. The Republican led Congress has had few accomplishments this year. Their failure to repeal and replace Obamacare was and still is a major political embarrassment. If they don’t get tax reform done, the already angry Republican base is going to be even angrier. The base is definitely not going to tolerate two major legislative failures.
The good news is that there seems to be a decent chance that they’ll get some type of tax reform done before the end of the year. Unfortunately, it is impossible to be optimistic considering that the Republican party has historically been masters at snatching defeat from the jaw of victory.
It’s also impossible to have faith in cuckold fools like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. They’ve shown no sense of urgency with anything. Plus, you have political saboteurs like John McTumor and others in the Senate.
Passing tax reform will be necessary to keep political momentum on our side. If tax reform passes and Steve Bannon helps primary a bunch of these establishment cuckold Republican Senators, the Trump agenda should go into overdrive. That’s what we need in order to push the overton window further in our favor.
