You'd never think that the "fiscally responsible party" would rush through tax reform in a matter of weeks, would reprise Trickle Down Economics as if no one remembers Ronald Reagan and maybe they don't but I do and I'm going down a rabbit hole of I can't believe that they are doing this while all the while they are doing this to all of us, except those of you who are very very very rich.... or are corporations, because you are people, too, it seems.
