  1. Anyone really think the Never Trumpers in the Senate are going to do one thing to advance his agenda?

    Each and every day more never TRUMPERS in the congress and senate are revealing themselves and that’s a good thing.

      Unless the NeverTrump RINOs are voted out in the primary nothing will ever change. For example, Paul Ryan ran against a conservative 2 elections in a row and the voter turnout in the first primary was less than 19%. Ryan won the primary. The voter turnout in the second primary plunged to less than 15% and Ryan won again. Politicians and diapers must be changed often and for the same reason. Mark Twain

        Your comment made me start thinking of the Speaker position. In Ryan’s most recent emailed newsletter, the lead article was about his visit to the Harley Davidson plant in Menomonee Falls, WI. It is located in the 5th District whose congressman is Jim Sensenbrenner, who did not accompany him. Ryan is congressman from the 1st District. The visit had the appearance of being a campaign stop (which I have no doubt it was). He discussed taxes. In the clip I saw of his speech, there was no mention of President Trump or his tax agenda and leadership role in pushing tax reform.

        Paul Ryan is certainly putting himself front and center, seldom, if ever, mentioning President Trump (except to criticize, of course). On occasion he does use the designation “the Trump Administration.” But as far as he is concerned, he is the leader and he pays the President little mind when he out and about.

        Duties of the Speaker of the House…the Constitution merely states in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 5 that there should be such an office. It gives no particulars on who the Speaker should be or what his duties are. Apparently the position is what the Speaker wishes to make of it.

        This is a good article describing the present-day duties: http://www.ilonanickels.com/CC_speakerhouse.html .

        The Speaker’s sole interaction with the President is…”To negotiate with the Senate and the White House to resolve any legislative differences To amass votes, building coalitions large enough to pass bills.”

        One might give Ryan some credit for being interested in what those who work in factories are thinking. Unfortunately, because of his seeming lack of respect for President Trump, I’m aways suspicious of his moves and motives.

    It seems to me that paxpayers in high tax states will move or vote in politicians that will lower their taxes.

      Most likely they will try to vote in politicians to lower taxes. Instant never trumpers. Look at the stupidity of this situation. Muhlveney was so sharp before. He sucks at putting lipstick on this pig. Voters aren’t going to see this any other way. Did my taxes go down substantially or not? They’re not going to give a rats ass about Muhlveney telling them what he thinks is fair.

    Well the track record suggests that all this talk of tax reform is just that.. talk. It amounts to a stalling tactic against actually doing a damn thing and serves more as proof that they have no intention of acting than it does as a predictor of what’s to come. JMO

      I agree, stinkfoot63.

      They’re doing this to make our President Trump look bad and to create a narrative that “Trump is inept. He didn’t get anything done.” etc. for Election 2020.

      These people don’t deserve to live in America, much less serve us. Traitors

      Fake Congress

        Yup. As far as I’m concerned they are enemy combatants… criminals. They are of the same ilk that got swept in during 2010 and 2014 off year elections on a mandate to reverse the Obama/progressive agenda.

        They engaged in show voting and tough sounding rhetoric… all of which became nothing more than a meaningless charade intent on fooling the masses when the votes actually counted and they predictably and magically kept falling JUST short of making good on campaign promises- which themselves were revealed to have been lies.

        It’s the GOP that’s at war against us every bit as much as the Democrats. The thing is the Republicans have a very important role: playing advocates to to very people they’re at war against.

    the Senate version has a 1.5 trillion cushion (added to the deficit) to enact this – the House doesn’t.

    a) they plan on ironing that out in reconciliation, so the number will probably be lower?
    b) this one’s going to get Noisy
    c) I’m really glad we/Trump can point to the amounts of relief/recovery money backed by the government recently – hopefully it will provide some perspective on numbers

    Remember Pelosi, with the first TARP or whatever – lol
    “Seven Hundred Billion Dollars” over and over again – what was the ROI on that one?

    Mick says senate is in recess this week, well next week the house is. We really need to do something about their work calendar. I keep hearing congress members saying, we should stay until we get something done, but we know it is all just show. Thought this calendar was clearer than .Gov.

    Will tax reform be less of a fiasco ? Maria wants to know.

    Looked at without blinders, here is what I see. Sundance’s reservations about Muhlveney were correct. He may be a fraud. What is the actual GOPe goal here? To shear the sheep just a bit more. Raise middle class taxes in the name of conservatism. And cut corporate taxes, and taxes on the wealthy significantly. That’s not winning. Muhlveney is a bald faced liar, willing to go on TV and advocate that requiring you to pay taxes on the money you paid taxes on, is in his words, the right thing to do, even if it raises your tax burden. Trump signs something like that, he’s a one termer.
