With the GOP tax bill being passed by the House last week, the bill now moves to the Senate for a vote after Thanksgiving. We’ve outlined some of the crazy things we saw in the bill, but this is more than just crazy, it’s also dangerous to the middle class in America – and the majority of voters.
Congressman John Barry Larson outlines some of this insanity and calls it for what it is – political theater. The fact the GOP is slipping this through to appease their donors and just to say they got something done is horrendous. No major rewrite of the tax code that penalizes so many Americans should be pushed through without hearings or full analysis.
Watch a furious Congressman John Barry Larson (CT) absolutely nail what's wrong with the #TaxCut plan.
