Let's all take a look at something that will actually negatively affect all of us that aren't rich. The tax bill is going to pass at the end of this week unless a few senators suddenly grow a conscience. Those that voted against the health bills are all on board here (one cause it opens up drilling in the national park in Alaska, hilariously). This thing not only raises taxes on anyone making less than 50,000, but it makes steps towards criminalizing abortion, adds in the aforementioned drilling in Alaska, cuts taxes massively on the rich, vastly increases expenses for grad students, and massively increases the national debt (vastly more over time, so the ignorant won't be able to follow cause and effect and vote against those who passed it). The real pain kicks in at 2027, so whoever's in charge then will catch most of the flack. Clever. Here's a good summary of it. Yes, this particular article is from a "biased" source. No, Fox news isn't covering jack about this since it's massively unpopular with EVERYONE and thus wouldn't have any spot on that channel as it makes their own guys look bad. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/29/...column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news Some choice excerpts: This is calamitous and makes me really worried for where my parents are going to be, considering they'll be retired at that point and probably in retirement homes. I don't have any illusions about reaching the 1,000,000 per year income bracket by then, like I think many of the handful of rubes who support this bill do. Bleh. Carry on!
