Question for you "Tax Experts" gloriously expounding about the evil Republicans and the brave, Democratic "resistance"...  

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

I'm not talking about The Washington Post's, Rachel Maddow's, HuffPo's or MSNBC's take on it...  I'm talking about the actual bill...  (...and no, Maui Faker...  "looking it over" [which I don't believe for a damn second] doesn't count).

I'm betting not a damn one of you.

In the 0.0000000001% chance that you actually DID read it, how many of you can impartially analyse what you looked at???

I'm guaran-damn-teeing not a damn one of you.

So, here...  READ THE FUCKING THING before you start the standard, partisan bullshit that masquerades as knowledge around here...

Once you get done reading and cogitating over all 440 pages of that thing, HOPEFULLY you will have a BUNCH of questions.

Once you have them THEN bring them back here and share them with the rest of us to see if we can answer them.  

I, personally, have a LOT more training in determining tax consequences then most people and I have a buttload of questions myself, so don't be shy... come one, come all!

...but, for the love of doG, PLEASE learn something about what you are spouting off about BEFORE going into the standard kabuki "WE Democrats are good/THEY ("They" being anyone who disagrees with Democratic oriented partisan politics) are BAD!" bullshit.  It accomplishes nothing and only makes you look stupid(er).

BTW, Ron...

I do have an initial generalized question about HR 1:

The tax cuts in the bill are allegedly there to stimulate the economy.  Seeing as how the GDP is growing, we have virtually full employment, the stock market and corporate profits are way up and the small cap private sector is doing just fine, what is the reason for a government instigated economic stimulus right now?

I  tend to read time saving federal digests and legal summaries re legislative enacts that have yet to become law... A practice and habit I picked up while in law school...

Here's a sample:

https://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/federal-tax-reform-the-house-tax-...


Re your generalized question: My comment from the MSNBC post:

"What's so striking about the analytic discussion is the Republican economic advisor says that there is absolutely no economic justification for what the House Republicans have done...NONE!"

So far all you've been able to establish with your superior insight on the legislation is that you know the number of pages in entails...

If that's the extent of it , we're all in trouble...

Now, where's the citation/link re your "Elitist Dixiecrats"? It might be a tad easier for you if you were to simply admit that there is no such thing as an "Elitist Dixiecrat". 

But hey, keep Googling, you may yet come up with something or someone that might, as you would  put it. cover your ass.

So that would be a "No, I did NOT even try to read it!" vote from Ron.  (sprinkled with some of the same tired BS that didn't wash before).  Quelle surprise.

"So that would be a "No, I did NOT even try to read it!" vote from Ron.  (sprinkled with some of the same tired BS that didn't wash before).  Quelle surprise."

No, my vote is: no need to  read 440  pages of material that isn't law yet and likely not to become law when perfectly competent time saving digests and summaries that are often cited  in legal briefs, judicial opinions and scholarly research are accessible...

Fact is you have shown nothing that demonstrates no more familiarity or facility with the material than anyone else here has acquired...

I doubt that you could have ploughed through the whole thing since it wasn’t passed by the House until Thursday last week....No need to make such an effort prior to then unless you were charged with the responsibility to actually vote on it.

You are being hypocritical and disingenuous if you're accusing people of not doing something you haven't done yourself. The fact is there is no evidence of you having read the document here at all, absolutely none whatsoever.

Given your penchant for hyperbole and invective it renders this entire post highly suspect in its intent and purpose.

Since it's just as likely that you haven't read the bill as passed by the House youself, what is your point exectly...

Or do you feel a need to duck , dodge, avoid and evade as c you have done re your statement /assertion re "Elitist Dixiecrats" or can we take your silence on the subject as a "yes I  made the whole thing up"?  

Just as we can take your bombastic bluster and attempted bullying as your attempt to sell the fantasy that you've read something that others here haven't.  

QUELLE SURPRISE, INDEED!
