Trump tax cut unlocks billions for a GOP election blitz

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/18/us/politics/tax-cuts-republicans-donors.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

WASHINGTON — Republicans are struggling to make the $1.5 trillion Trump tax cuts a winning issue with voters in the midterm congressional elections, but the cuts are helping the party in another crucial way: unlocking tens of millions of dollars in campaign donations from the wealthy conservatives and corporate interests that benefited handsomely from it.

Billionaires and corporations that reaped millions of dollars in tax cuts are pumping some of that windfall into the Congressional Leadership Fund, a “super PAC” closely aligned with Speaker Paul D. Ryan that is flooding the airwaves and front porches of swing congressional districts with increasingly sharp attacks on the Democratic candidates vying to wrest control of the House.

1. "Pass it or don't call me again"

That's what they were told and that's what they did

2. If people are stupid enough to believe the commercials, then we will accomplish nothing.

 

Only when people/the voters start thinking for themselves and educate themselves on what each candidate is saying, the GOP will lose.
