Skip to comments.Senate Tax Legislation May Delay Corporate Tax Cut [semi-satire]

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed concerns that the House proposal to make corporate tax cuts take place immediately "has sparked apprehension among our Democratic colleagues that such precipitous action would put their Party's candidates at an unfair disadvantage during the 2018 election. They fear that the repatriation of corporate money currently held outside the country that such a tax cut would initiate would lead to too big of an increase in investment and jobs and that it would essentially ensure a Republican sweep of all competitive races for House and Senate seats."
"Rather than tilt the playing field against our colleagues we are considering postponing the planned corporate tax cuts until 2019," McConnell said. "That would put any potential economic resurgence into a period beyond the date of the election and remove the unfair advantage it could give Republicans in the minds of the voters."
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) was effusive in his praise for what he called "Mitch's extraordinary devotion to fair play. That he would turn away from using his Party's power to ram through a measure that could guarantee his Party remained the majority is the kind of selflessness you rarely see in politics. I don't know if I could be as magnanimous were our roles reversed."

I have never hated politicians like I hate these GOPE republicans. They are going to get slaughtered in 2018 and Trump is not to blame. Trump will then rule by veto and the justice department with a new AG.
And we, the voters will be blamed for voting with our feet. We just don’t fathom their brilliance.
