Like I said when I started this thread - this entire bill is a complete sham and BS.  I call it like I see it.  Most people won't see an extra dime from this. 

What a FNG waste. 

If we are stuck with ObamaPOScare and the net result of this tax idiocy is that anyone pays a penny more in taxes - than whats the point? 

If we are cutting taxes across the board - why would anyone who pays taxes have to pay a cent more? 

Total crap.

To me - the most people should be paying less taxes. 

hhhmmmm.   

as a middle class idiot in NYC area - this causes me to pay more.  So guess what - I'm not happy about it.   Sad

I'm with you on this. Only a fool would be happy to pay more taxes. I'll lobby for any changes that lower my tax burden and I'll lobby against any changes which will raise it.

Do you think the money is being wasted as it is, or what?

There is always monetary waste, whether it is in government, business or on a personal level. I wish this was not true, but it is. Like almost all people, I benefit from government programs, whether they have to do with infrastructure, education, defense or health, etc.

I was a state public employee for the bulk of working life. The wages covered my cost of living. The benefits, such as sick leave, vacations, group health insurance and retirement investments have all been good. Not get rich good, but having a decent quality of life good. I was and am grateful for this. I saw waste, but I tried never to contribute to it.

Regarding the current political scene in Washington D.C., waste continues or has escalated. Promises of "draining the swamp" haven't happened and probably won't. Trump's weekend breaks travel expenses are wasteful. We all pay for his continuing campaign speeches around the country in preparation for reelection, when the cost of this should be bore by campaign fund-raisers, not to mention he's doing it using time he should be spending being President. His appointing people with no government experience has been wasteful in several ways, not the least of which is progress. It appears as if Trump thinks he's still hosting his reality show, The Apprentice, because every Friday he say's "you're fired!" to someone he appointed only 8 or less months ago. Except as entertainment for some, Trump's tweets and off-the-wall comments are a waste of time and a danger to our security, international relationships and progress.

Yes, there is a lot of waste in government, now that I think about it.

Do you think you're becoming more conservative in the traditional sense, with Trump in office?
