    This seems rather inexcusable. The rationale for these tax cuts has been that it would spur investment in the US Economy. That idea has dubious credibility historically - but - the cuts would apply retroactively to 2017, even though the cuts won't technically happen for a few years. How would you inject money onto the Economy under those conditions?

    Also, I guess several members of Trumps' Cabinet, who needed to divest themselves of business interests to serve will come out rather nicely...

    Thoughts?

    *edit* these retroactive tax cuts will mean more borrowing by the Govt - with no demonstrable upside to the Economy.

    On the one hand it's disgusting what will happen to people. On the other, this move is going to save me quite a lot of dough. Thanks, Donald?

    !Ole.

    On the other hand, there's going to be a decent boom for the funeral industry.

    Both parties have a philosophy of the more debt the better.

    One day the bill will come due, and the pain will be very real.
