Relief needed

Tax reform will aid Americans

By Jason Rapert Special to the Democrat-Gazette

This article was published November 20, 2017 at 2:09 a.m.

Time and time again, politicians have promised federal tax reform and tax relief to American citizens, only to break those promises and leave American families and business owners shouldering tremendous burdens of taxation at the federal, state and local levels around the country.

Let me think, is there anyone LESS qualified to determine the impact of either the house or senate tax bills on Arkansans than Rapert...nope; no one. I'm guessing he hasn't read either bill, nor has he read the expert analysis of any number of bipartisan orgs whose job it is to do just that. Both bills will hurt Arkansans and he couldn't care less.

Thanks to the ArkTimes, we know there will be a protest of the bill tomorrow at noon at 7th & Main. I'm sure Rapert won't be there as that's when he's stuffing his fat a$$ on the dime of some lobbyist as he does most days.

thank you Senator Rapert. I do pray that the GOP can get their tax reform bill passed. however, I believe there are too many democrats and some republicans that will vote against it. just to try to harm President Trump. no matter what relief it would bring to the American citizenry.

No ruby. It's the fact that the tax bill is poorly written, hurts too many people, and benefits the richest people and corporations. Get your head out of the dark place and face the facts and the truth about this boondoggle.
This is just a public relations ploy and has nothing whatsoever to do with helping Americans, making America stronger, or dealing with the debt. Nada, darling.

When wall street economists that lean to the right say it's a bad plan, maybe fuzzy butts should heed their warnings:

The preacher pays due deference to his alternate holy trinity - David Koch, Charles Koch, and Donald Trump.

How foolish. Most of Rapert’s admirers are going to lose out while the very rich are getting the biggest gift of their lives. They aren’t struggling to pass the farm when they die! Haha..You are stuck in the dark ages of time..The rich are getting payday heaven on money they’ve never paid taxes on anyway. You think they didn’t know how to stash it?

So Rapert parrots the already debunked Republican talking points and tries to make it look like original thought. Oh well, no one ever said he was the sharpest tack in the Lege.
...
BTW ruby, the opposition is standing not to harm Trump, but to prevent harm to the average American. I know that's hard to comprehend but you need to step away from the Fiddlin' Idiot and do some real research on this.
