CHAPMAN: Will tax cuts help Republicans in 2018?

CHAPMAN: Will tax cuts help Republicans in 2018?

Those Republican branding wizards. How they get there might be complicated.

President Donald Trump congratulates Republican congressional leaders after passage of a new federal tax code at a rally on December 20, 2017, in Washington. Dems want to subpoena Don Jr.to compel his testimony, which could shed light on what happened at that meeting and how far Trump has gone to prevent the truth about it from coming out.

Now that the new GOP tax law will go into effect, we citizens of Long Island, when given lemons, must make lemonade. Meanwhile, those with very little continue to suffer. McConnell would go broke trying to sell beer on a troop ship.

How unpopular are the Republicans entering 2018, an election year?

"And Democrats have a massive enthusiasm advantage", he said, while arguing their 13-point lead over Republicans in "generic" Democrat vs.

Fivethirtyeight.com says that's the most dismal figure for a majority party in Congress since the 1938 election cycle.

North Carolina political consultants from both parties said in interviews that 2018 election outcomes will rest on registered unaffiliated voters. The Stanford authors (who actually lean to the right) noted, "I$3 t is clear from the commentary accompanying the forecasts that most of the authors were more concerned about overpredicting the Democratic losses than underpredicting them." Heh.

They'll be partaking of every benefit of the GOP tax bill. Republicans and Trump are fresh off a tax victory, and Democrats don't want to position themselves as obstructionists. But one person who knows what's in those returns is Robert Mueller. "We need to do DACA clean", she said.

In terms of political expedience and ultimate cost, the Trump tax cuts are reminiscent of the invasion of Iraq. We need to restore the art of negotiation as a necessary and proper tool of governing. We did it because we could.

"You got a strong slate of candidates on the Republican side, strong candidates on the Democratic side".

They won't let the details stop them.

This includes all that debt, which immediately is being spun as a reason to further carve away at important human services.

Himes added, "It would be a tragedy if the report has a minority section that says, 'Look, we wanted to talk to these two dozen witnesses and weren't able to do so'". About $8 billion. So how, Sen. Iowa's congressional lawmakers all voted in favor of the tax bill. Or we could allow people to donate a portion of their income tax payment to a designated state-run nonprofit - perhaps the State Education Resource Center Foundation, claiming a federal charitable deduction that way.

These were the same big-spending voices in the past who opposed the Kennedy tax cuts in the 1960s and the Reagan tax cuts in the 1980s, both of which strengthened the USA economy and improved the lives of ordinary Americans.

Just 35 percent of Iowans surveyed in December said they approved of Trump, while 61 percent say they disapproved of his work performance, according to an end-of-year poll conducted by Des Moines-based Selzer & Company.

The Republicans' revoking of mandated coverage under the ACA is projected to drive up premiums for those Americans by 10 percent.

"Government funding may depend on a deal with Democrats on" dreamers, said Stan Collender, a nonpartisan budget expert and Forbes columnist, "and Trump may not be willing to do that without money for his wall". Really? Millions of Americans will owe their health coverage to the ACA in 2018.

Maybe people who receive government subsidies are still capable of reaching a complex and "rational" judgment that they don't like a coercive policy anyway? Under that option, Medicaid funds are used to purchase private health plans in the state's marketplace. But as Susan Hennessey and Benjamin Wittes point out on foreignpolicy.com, we can empirically evaluate whether Republicans are - or aren't - making a good-faith effort to interview all the witnesses necessary to establish the full truth about Russian interference and possible conspiracy with it.

In 2017, when it appeared outrage was dead, outrage in fact flooded the streets - the Women's March, the counter protests to racist goons, the March for Science, and the parade of all those voters to the polls to send a message to Trump and his enablers.
