The Republican tax scam is passing, so it might not be the darkest day this year, but it’s definitely not the brightest. However, it is a great day to hit the links—and here are a whole bunch of them: 

David Waldman congratulates Congressman Jerry Nadler! Well, congratulations to the system for functioning occasionally, still.

Here’s your middle class tax cut! It’s the best day since “We’re in the Money” was a satirical hit, especially for “typical families”, with not so typical tax write-offsGreg Dworkin knows how the game is played: Yay generic Dems! Brand X Dems are looking good, which is a good thing. But does this mean that we need to be more “generic” or more “Democratic” in order to win elections against Republicans? Is it enough to be anti-Trump? Some conservatives are finding out how bad it is being pro-Trump. Fake morality embraces Trump as real morality gets the hell away.

Joan McCarter’s laryngitis certainly did not silence her this week: Chuck Schumer will force a Senate vote on Net Neutrality, which you’d think would have a lot of support. Susan Collins votes for tax cuts, which do not have a lot of support. The Corker Kickback 14 cash in. Alabama announces the shutdown of enrollments in its children’s health insurance program, as Doug Jones comes to the rescue. No CHIP, but look at the tax cut! By the way, the tax bill will help destroy the rest of our healthcare system. Now that they have stolen everything, what are Republicans going to do? Maybe they now have the time to proofread their bill, and figure out how it works.
