No matter how Trump tries to dress up this tax bill as a "Christmas present for the middle class," it's still meaner than something even the Grinch would do.
Here's what's happening:
Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee suddenly switched his vote to “yes” on the upcoming tax bill after GOP leaders added a provision to personally boost his real-estate income.
What more proof do we need that the so-called Tax Reform Bill is a boon to billionaires?
When International Business Times interviewed the Republican Majority Whip, John Cornyn, they uncovered how the blatant bribe was wrapped up to "cobble together" the necessary votes to pass the controversial tax bill.
Cornyn tried to defend the last minute provision as "just one piece" of a 1000 page-bill when asked if it was put there for Corker.
Corker, and Trump, both real estate tycoons, would benefit greatly from this sneaky little add-on. No surprise there. This is shaping up to be Trump's biggest con...and most Americans will be the victims.
Not so happy holidays...
Time for me to walk on down the road...
