Exclamation Next Up......"Tax Cuts This Year!!!"

The pivot has taken place. The White House is abandoning health care and will focus on TAX CUTS......woohoo!!!
Please don't let this turn into another fiasco! It is time to get something positive for the American citizen.
We don't need (nor can afford) Tom-foolery, arguments, tweets, etc.......we need real action from the folks that are supposed to be working for us.
Ironically, my Congressman leads the House Ways & Means Committee thus there is a bull's-eye on his back from his constituents..........time to produce or get out of the way!!! Lets watch this one closely folks, this is the Superbowl for the administration, Congress and the citizens.

Lord i pray these " republicans " have the courage to cut taxes.
They seem to think that they will be seen in a negative light if they do.
Of course the dems will speak of starving kids and women but for our futures sake they have to uave some courage to do whats right for the country......not whats popular with the dem party.
COURAGE.......Freakin idiots

If they keep funding Obamacare, it's gonna be even harder to make an argument for a tax cut. Repealing Obamacare has to happen in order to get tax cuts, most likely.

There will be no repeal.. 3 Rep women have all stated they will NOT vote for a all out repeal.. which is the last effort there is on this matter... that kills it. its over.
Everyone of these Rep need to be removed at primaries. They have failed their constituents.
The ones that voted FOR the repeal the first time around when they know it wouldn't pass, did it for election purposes... they recanted this time around when they knew it had a chance at passing.
They are in the swamp.

Disappointed in Trump for not calling them out on it... and instead insisting the democrats will come crawling to want to fix it when it fails..
no they wont.
they don't make mistakes. ever. even when hit about the head with them daily.
its a fiasco.

Despite what the closet TBH Socialists (and the one Marxist) claim, most of these "Republicans" were elected or re-elected for one purpose; to REPEAL Obamacare, not keep it. As for the polls they cite...NBC, CNN, etc. That's humorous. Actions have consequences and many of us are paying attention.

I hope it is going to happen, but feel these career politicians are going to keep jerking us around. They don't want Trump to do any good, they want to stall him out so come next election they can say "look at what he didn't do because he isn't a politician." These career politicians saw their way of life threatened when the American people voted in an outsider.

Someone said it best.....paraphrasing. ..most of the Repubs that are there now rode the tea party wave. Right or wrong that is why they are in office! To not vote in unison now needs to be instant banishment by there constituency. ......just shamefully appalling! !! I know my guy is a weasel.....Kevin Brady. .....if he don't come thru on tax breaks I will truly support the "next man up!"

My Congressman is John Carter. That back-stabbing bast*ard lost my vote last go-round. I voted for the "next guy in line" who was a good choice but he got no traction District wide. The People could care less. They like the idea of being Republican/Conservative/Constitutionalists but when it comes time to do the research, they are asleep at the wheel. Point being, it is 75% the fault of the voters.

This BS has to stop, it makes me furious. They haven't done anything. Several good posts above I completely agree with. These folks need to be jobless next go round, we need to do everything we can to remind folks to remember how bad Americans have been screwed by these crooks. The American people deserve much better.


Just like this tactic, voice vote so we can't see how these spineless waste's of spaces voted. http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...ment-jobs/amp/

Well, I truely believe that Trump is about to just plain call the slimy republicans out and expose them for the swamp smelling eels they are. They will either join him or be exposed. Yall know i didnt start out a Trump man at all. Now that he is my President, I am impressed with the common sense platform. He does some silly stuff but love America....He DOES!

Congress SUCKS

I hope they raise taxes so retired gods of war like myself can continue to receive checks for top dollar guns and whiskey.

Aint nothing wrong with that Steve!!! We have spent hours on this subject and life in general while on the water bowfishing. You know I am all about the USA.....period! HE is my PRESIDENT as I will support AMERICA always......no matter who sits in the chair. To me, calling them out really is not the answer as the clock is ticking. WE all thought our tea party folks were ready to roll.............that has not be true. The time to replace them is not on his side. President Trump must start spending quality time with those RINO's/Tea Party Congressman/ and the Senators that are KEY to getting this stuff done. The silliness is definitely sinking his boat but it is firing up his base.....which is not a way to govern. It is great for local, county, state and national arguments, but not for the citizens that want him to succeed with his platform that could actually get our nation on track.
