    Republican senators in those blue/purple states will now have a much harder time holding onto their seats in 2020 which could end up flipping the Senate to the Dems.

    If that happens you will only have your own party to blame for motivating the Dem voters to turn out in higher numbers.

    Got to wonder what happened to the conservatives who were whining that it was "their money" when they were demanding tax cuts for the wealthy?

    Now suddenly conservatives have INCREASED taxes and they are applauding.

    What will they say when they are on the receiving end of tax increases by the Dems?

    No, we just need to INCREASE TAXES on the wealthy and ELIMINATE the special rates for capital gains.

    Why must the BLUE states subsidize the RED states?

    Trump Hates America

    Trump Hates the Middle Class.

    Trump's Tax "Policy" is all about making himself and his rich buddies richer (on the backs of hard-working Americans).

    Trump is a DISGRACE.

    Dems are going to be motivated all across the nation in 2020 and what the GOP and your beloved BLOTUS did with this fiscal malfeasance taxcut is going to ensure that those Dems in blue states will be contributing via ActBlue to the opponents of ALL of those Senators. You only need to see how the fundraising closed the gap in Texas in 2018 to understand how effective it can be in 2020.

    ActBlue is NOT a "big leftwing pac". Instead it is the anti-PAC solution that has OUTRAISED all of the corrupt corporate PACs. Since the conservatives have no equivalent they are going to be seriously hurting in 2020.

    No it’s a 501c3 PAC...for the left. It’s been around since 04. No doubt it will spend a lot of money. But why do you want to raise my taxes and that of other American workers?

    And that is exactly what is. Leftist propaganda. Think Progress was one of the first to put out the bullshit. Their claim was factchecked as spin.

    People are getting less back because most people paid less throughout the year. They kept more in their 24-26 paychecks and therefore didn't give the government an interest free loan. If you are upset that you didn't get more back than last year, its because you spent it already and have a very fickle mind because you want big daddy government to give you a big check at the end of the year since you cant save it on your own.
