Actually, this works in favor of the Republicans. With new tax tables applied to existing withholding, most tax experts are expecting many fewer people will receive refunds this year than in past years… so the real shock is not the delay, but the ways in which the 2017 Republican tax bill has shifted tax burdens from wealthier individuals and corporations to middle and blue collar tax payers.
One can expect a lot of unhappy people come April 15th.
The tax bill was the one clear legislative success of the first two years of the Trump Administration and it was very telling that almost no Republican campaigned on it as an accomplishment in 2018.
And others actually care about their fellow Americans. Some of us actually love our brothers and sisters. You can deride it as virtue signaling all you want. You clearly need to in order to feel better about your callousness towards others. That’s fine. Deride away. I want you to feel better about yourself.
The House passed legislation that was unanimously approved by the Senate two weeks ago that addresses border security to the tune of another $1.3B in addition to the $1.6B already provided for border security. Of which only 10% has been spent. Are you wanting the Senate to also pass this legislation?
The Democrats passed legislation to open the government. The same legislation that was already approved by the Senate. The ball is now with the Republicans. And yes, the Republicans are heartless bastards that don’t give a rip that their pettiness and ineffectual inability to govern will hurt average Americans.
