“Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) was still scrambling to do damage control Monday after it was revealed that he switched his vote on the GOP tax bill to yes soon after a tax deduction was added that could benefit his real estate investments. ” (HP) So they add one tax deduction to get the vote of the guy who complained loudly that the tax bill would increase the federal budget deficit by a trillion $$ over the next ten years? And he didn’t/doesn’t even know what specifically is in this bill?
Corker has denied that his change of heart was related to the new perk and said that he had nothing to do with drafting the provision nor did he know it was in the latest version of the tax bill. Then why did he switch his support if he didn’t know what was in the new version of the bill? Corker admitted to the IBT: “I had like a two-page summary I went through with leadership. I never saw the actual text.”(HP)
”Mr. Corker, in the interview, called the accusations ”disheartening” and said that he had not changed anything in the final bill. “There’s nothing to buy me off with,” Mr. Corker said.”(NYT)
I’m wondering if they finally succeeded in ‘breaking’ Corker, have him genuflect before the Dear Leader, and swear the loyalty oath:”I thank you for the opportunity and the blessing that you have given me to serve your agenda.” (Previously performed by Reince Priebus, who was fired not much later.)
Well, Trump ain’t going to release any information about his taxes voluntarily, that’s for sure. Apparently, he can’t.... , ..... “ The American public cannot determine exactly how Trump would benefit from the tax bill because of his ongoing refusal to release his tax returns. Sanders brought out the same old dodge on Tuesday, saying that he can’t disclose his financial information because “the president’s taxes are still under audit.”
This is false. The IRS has affirmed that “nothing prevents individuals from sharing their own tax information.”
Apparently Corker made a big booboo..... “Sen. Bob Corker failed to properly disclose millions of dollars in income from real estate, hedge funds and other investments since entering the Senate in 2007, according to new financial reports filed by the Tennessee Republican.” (WSJ)
Interesting to note what committee this slimebag is on: “The senator is the third-ranking Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, which oversees the real-estate and financial-services sectors.”(WSJ)
Another very disturbing things is that most of these slimebags haven’t even read what’s in the tax reform bill. But yet they claim they did! “HuffPost had to ask 18 House Republicans to identify the tax brackets before we finally came across just one member who could: Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah. (We stopped asking after Stewart, meaning the percentage of the House GOP conference who knew this key aspect of the bill could have been much worse than our imperfect survey suggests.)” And as for Trump, I don’t think he reads most of the stuff he signs.
And as for Trump, I don’t think he reads most of the stuff he signs.
And Melania is very grateful he doesn't !!
It's becoming clear that Many, if not MOST, of Congress who voted for this will get big personal dividends and breaks (aka Corker) from its clauses... that should further INFURIATE the voter base. note I said should... let's see who's awake and who's asleep (from drinking the cyanide kool aid) !!
Maybe I’ve been wrong all these years, but shouldn’t those jerks in Congress at least have a smidgen of an idea of what they voted for? Apparently a lot of them just blindly follow orders from the party leaders.
