How many of you actually READ the House's "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act"???

The reason is straightforward: those folks have reached escape velocity from the Real World. They choose to believe anything from the Right Wingnuts.

Don’t they know there’s nothing new under the sun? Personally, I think a lot of guys just go to…Continue
