Struggling Republicans Think ANOTHER Tax Cut Will Save Their Jobs In 2020


Republicans right now in Congress and the
Senate are a little bit scared. They’re scared of what’s going to happen to
them in the 2020 elections. Not only have they all decided to, you know,
hitch their wagons to Donald Trump, which is going to cost a lot of them dearly, but
they also in general are horrible politicians who their constituents now know are horrible
politicians should they’re trying to come up with something to offer people to say,
Hey, we may not have good ideas like the progressive democratic socialists, but we got one idea
for you and one idea only. We want to cut your taxes and I’m not speaking
in hyperbole right now. That is actually the plan that is being discussed
with the white house and Republican members of Congress according to staffers for Republican
Mark Meadows who spoke to the Washington post and they said that absolutely Republicans
are working on tax cut 2.0 because they think that’s going to save them in the 2020 election. Now, just to recap, the tax cuts and jobs
package that they, uh, released or passed at the end of December, 2017 has done nothing
to stimulate the economy. It has done nothing to give average workers
a raise, which Paul Ryan and Donald Trump both said we’d get between four and $9,000
a year. But it turns out a lot of us are actually
paying even more in taxes. So we got doubly screwed on the deal. We didn’t make money. We lost money on that plan from the Republicans. People understand that uh close to 90% of
the tax cuts actually went to those at the top. Everybody knows this. Even Republican voters, they are willing to
admit, yeah, I didn’t get a tax cut. This whole thing was a lie. And Republicans in Congress are responding
by saying, you know what? Let’s do it again. Let’s do it again. Let’s just cut taxes. And it just further proves what I have been
saying forever. And that is Republicans haven’t had an original
idea since the 1980s. Everything that has come up, every problem
Republican’s face, their answer is, let’s cut taxes. Let’s cut taxes. These are the dumbest people we could ever
possibly have representing us in Congress because this is the only thing they know how
to do. They are facing utter annihilation according
to the latest polls, which they will change eventually, but they are facing annihilation
in 2020 in all they can think of is, what if we could taxes again, this sounds like
good idea, right? People like that. No. The problem with Republican politicians is
that they think their constituents are even stupider than they are and they’re not. Maybe there was a time when they were, maybe
there was a time when voters out there could be hoodwinked. Course that was an era before the age of information
that we’re currently living in where you didn’t have YouTube explaining to you why the tax
cuts didn’t help you. You didn’t have Twitter telling you that Republicans
are lying to you. You didn’t have Facebook doing a really horrible
job of fact-checking, but nonetheless, people have access to information right now and they’re
using it to finally come to grips with the reality that Republicans have no ideas and
they have no desire to develop any new ideas. And that, to me, is the worst part of that story.

  1. Funny how there was an increase in the unemployment rate in spite of the number of jobs added last month. So now people will be working for even less, given companies are hoarding profits. Republicans have learned well to feed the hand that donates to them πŸ™„

  3. If their dumb supporters fall this crap again, then they deserve to lose everything that will eventually lose like Social Security, Medicad, and Medicare. Just like the Bible says. The dogs eating the crumbs from his Master's table. Imagine a big pan of cornbread and he sprinkles down a few crumb and yet you're supposed to be satisfied. Wow they are some dumb and stupid people you. You rejoicing over a crumb, but they're getting millions and hundreds of thousands.

  4. More tax cuts, goodbye economy, hello recession, but you want to hear something I found out why the republicans always spend so much of tax payers money. Look up Judd Wanniski, the two Santa Claus theory, the republicans live by this. The democrats had the support of the people because they had given them, the minimum wage, 40 hrs work week, unions, medicare and medicaid, subsidies education, low cost student loans, etc. The republicans instead of serving the people they took on this two Santa Claus theory to discredit the democrats and spend like a drunken sailor and when the democrats took office, yell and scream about the economy like it's their fault which has worked until now. I kid you not, every time a republican are in the seat of the presidency we suffer economically over a tactic to try and destroy the democrats, this is how much, their patriotism goes and how much they care about America, a party of dysfunctional thinkers for power. .youtube.com/watch?v=uu68vZ8Hx-k

  12. Problem is in spite of the PredatorInChief all financial numbers look good (employment, wages, consumer spending, markets etc). There are damaging collateral damage from these stats and some are misleading but it’s what the mass public is hearing. Some genius hacker needs to leak some the (I’m sure disturbing/heinous) facts about DJT that woukd finally not just shut up his apologists/supporters but shame them. Leaked in a block chain way so not traceable and witnesses protected. Let’s start with truth behind taxes, Epstein docs and truth behind the missing migrant children.

  15. 196 said yes to Trump and what Trump's America perverted vision is, that's 196 "turncoats", I would bet Trump would want his name on Mount Rushmore for ego after he builds "the Wall". I was there in Germany in 88 and for almost a year traveled with my grandparents through out Europe at a very hostile environment towards Americans, but I eventually got to see that wall come down, never in my life time did it ever occurred to me that I would ever see another wall of hate be erected for the sole purpose of separation between two different people's.

    I am completely ashamed to be an American under the presidency of Trump's administration.

  23. Let's cut our 100 senators pay, and healthcare, free retirement, then demand they spend 90% of their year at work. That sounds like one hell of a tax cut.

  24. Republicans are not interested in the majority of the people, they are serving the majority of the capital. The rich have used their money to hijack the public discourse, telling us tax cuts, deregulation, saving on healthcare and education is needed to advance the economy to the benefit of all. Reality shows us tax cuts have not improved the economy at all. Logic: you're not going to invest just because you have more money. You're going to invest because there's more demand for your product. Which will not follow from tax cuts, but from salary increases.
    A healthy population is happier and productive. That's not obtainedd by tax cuts, but by tax raises on those who don't need that money to survive, in order to help those that do need help to survive. Helping people with healthcare will improve healthcare quality and – as opposed to tax cuts – will cause increased spending as people have more budget available and less fear of not being able to literally survive.
    Increased education helps with innovation, a necessity on the competitive world stage. Better educated people tend to earn more and live healthier, all benefits for society. If society is to survive, the answer is taxes, taxes and taxes. Not out of jealousy or to punish the rich, but out of essential need of redistribution of resources. It's not the 1% that can keep the world economy going, as the real demand and work force is with the 90%.
    Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Jef Bezos, Warren Buffet, Larry Ellison, the Koch family…. none of these will have to stay awake worrying about their survival, if you tax them at 90%.
    But millions of people could have a much much better live with a fair contribution the 1% – and thank them for it -.
    An entrepreneur should only be hailed for the contribution he makes to society,
    not for the money he makes on employing other people.

  25. The deficit has increased 26% since Trump's tax cuts according to the Washington Post and CNBC https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/25/federal-deficit-increases-26percent-to-984-billion-for-fiscal-2019.html. Our country is broke guys. That will become apparent in the near future. Hold on to your Social Security retirement and Medicare. 'Cause that's what the Republicans have their eyes on even though we pay for those in each and every paycheck. Eff 'em. Vote Blue no matter who in 2020.

  26. On another subject, I saw on TV today that trump wants to have a fireside chat. He wants to read his transcript to the people so he can explain how perfect it is. I say let him, I also say make sure it is the transcript that they locked away on the secure server. Now, that would be perfect.

  32. When will the average American realize when most politicians talk about tax cuts and helping the American people, they are only talking about the 1%?

  39. They also do a few other things aside if cutting tax for the wealthy, they are all about allowing huge corporations to openly dump toxic chemicals openly into the environment so they don't have to spend money disposing of it properly, they are all about allowing huge corporations to rape the land and leave smoldering lifeless holes everywhere, they are 100% in favor of removing regulations that were put in place to stop the banks from crashing the world economy AGAIN! They complain about a single mother getting $500 a month to help her feed her children yet don't say a single word about giving 100's of millions of dollars away fir FREE to oil companies who posted record profits for years on end, they are oh so eager to send other people's children to far off lands to get blown up and shot to hell & back while then call them leeches while claiming they are costing too much when they get back and need endless medical help and therapy to recover from their wounds, yet strangely enough for Republicans, not a single one of their children end up in the front lines, EVER!
    They now openly support a president who sings the praises of communist despotic dictators and how great they are while also denigrating our own national security outfits and federal law enforcement agencies and takes the word of a Russian thug who he can't say enough good things about. What use are they?

  41. How many more times will the Repubs get away w pulling these deficit building 'Trickle-Down' BS tax scams before these dolts finally catch on?! It's been debunked a thousand times over the past 30 years. Trumpanzee's are loath to admit they were doing far better under President Clinton and later Obama than they ever could under a 1% coddling, union busting, wage lowering, benefit slashing LIAR like Reagan, W Bush, or Fuhrer Trumpler. If any of those useless Repubs hadn't left a badly neglected, or complete train wreck economy when they left office America would have been much better still. Keep voting for the party that makes life harder for the middle class, and you'll keep struggling. Or as good old Forest Gump once said – "Stupid is as stupid does".

  42. I hate to say it, but a tax cut might work as an electoral strategy if they actually give it to the working class. It would be a terribly short-sighted Hail Mary pass, with devastating economic consequences, but what else do they have to offer? I hope progressives rise to the top and make a good enough case so the swing voters think: "Thanks for the check. I'll cash it, but I still want Medicare for all."

  46. The Repubs.are pretty much a one trick pony.Stimulate the rich to make sure the rest have a chance to make a better living.Decrease interest to sucker in speculators while lending predatory money,with little basis of assets to back up or insure the loan.If economy goes busto ,another ,,"fire" sale occurs of distressed or bankrupt property,which the wealthy have plenty of accrued cash to buy up at a huge discount.Big tax cuts to them amount to huge savings accounts not much stimulation for an economy.If it all works out it'll be another 07-09 smash and grab of assets,and big bailouts for the Biggies.and a stupid, very expensive lesson again for the little guy.Military Industrial machine will do well regardless.Deficit and Natl.debt don't seem to matter to "conservitudes"

Ideas on how to cheat the election system. Ideas on how to make schools worse. Ideas on how to take away healthcare and Social Security and eventually our pensions and 401K's. They know EXACTLY what they are doing. They are NOT stupid. There ARE many Democrats that are the same too. Just not ALL of them.
