One cannot make a silk purse out of a sows ear, and Democrats know that. They are protecting average Americans.

Democrats are holding the line for average Americans against a tax bill focused on the wealthy and corporations. I called that standing for Americans more than anything. Of course, when he benefits greatly from this reform he’s going to call it being obstructionists.

If anyone needs to check his repetitive posts, gohogs, it's you.

You might want to investigate the possibility of getting a life. It CAN be done, you know.

Well with their tax bill the republicans gift the nation with a turkey for thanksgiving( but its not a free turkey as the poor and the middle class will have their pockets picked ) and Trump is the ham , so the rich will have a great feast of tax cuts and increased wealth.

Armnar, that's a common phrase most say regarding voting. I say it a lot myself. I think that's being a little picky attacking gohogs about it. Heck, we used to say in TX all the time as a joke.

gohogs needs to revisit the reason he offered his ersatz apology to me some weeks back.
