The meager cuts aimed at the middle class will eventually expire in this Republican-sponsored tax reform bill. If they are made permanent by some future Congress, it will explode the deficit. Supposed concern about deficits will be used a justification for "entitlement reform." That's not-so-secret code for cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

"His Kevin" is all-in with this indefensible plan. Congressman Kevin McCarthy is a reliable fund-raiser among those dependent on the donor class (the rich and the unbelievably rich). See the connection?
