Democrats are throwing a tantrum and refusing to even look at the latest version of the tax bill before saying the hate it. The bill promises Regan-era tax cuts that would stimulate the economy and create jobs, but it seems Democrats intend to stand in the way of any positive change. They were also more concerned about starting their weekend instead of wrapping up the week’s business.
Just about every elected official on the left side of the aisle condemned the bill, but they were caught in a nasty bind when they admitted unanimously that they hadn’t actually read the piece.
Democratic icon Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., uploaded a video to Twitter in which she blasted the bill and used the hashtag “#GOPtaxscam.”
In his remarks following the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell dismissed the notion that the process was rushed, declaring, “Everybody had plenty of opportunity to see the measure. You complain about process when you’re losing, and that’s what you heard on the floor tonight.” In the final tally, all the Democrats voted against it and the only Republican to vote against the legislation was Bob Corker of Tennessee.
Republicans gleefully pointed to Nancy Pelosi’s famous quote about the Obamacare bill when she said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” (via: Rare)
Many Democrats have said they refuse to pass any bill that does not protect the “rights” of illegal immigrants and keep “Dreamers” in the US. It’s a sad state of affairs when they care more about non-Americans than US citizens. They also showed they cared more about getting their holiday shopping than doing their jobs.
