December 1st started out great! The news that Micheal Flynn was being arraigned and pleading guilty to lying to an FBI agent was awesome! Obviously he cut a deal with the prosecutors to avoid the charges in return for talking about his cohorts with Robert Mueller.
This will all lead to Trump's eventual downfall! Now THAT'S the way to start a day!
Then, later in the day, several of the GOP votes I was counting on to block Trump's insane tax giveaway announced they were supporting it!
And late in the evening (actually, the early morning hours of Saturday), the Senate passed the bill by two votes.
This will all lead to our NATION'S eventual downfall! Now THAT'S the way to ruin a day!
Yes, it'll go through reconciliation, and some of the less onerous provisions may be dropped or modified to appease the fence-sitters.
But the worst parts of this bill will likely be voted through. And we'll all be (with the exception of the 1%) paying for it for decades!
Elections have consequences.
Something tells me we're in for some even WORSE fucking consequences the longer this administration is allowed to carry on.
C'mon Mueller, you're our only hope!
