Tax cuts and some other relatively good news makes this a surprisingly better end-of-year than many of us expected. However, as we note throughout the show, the victories are fleeting and akin to the Cleveland Browns winning the last two games of the season after losing the first 14 games. At the same time, it doesn’t mean there is absolutely no use to winning and to the lessons that can be learned from it.
In this episode, we discuss the advantages of the tax bill along with repeal of the individual mandate of Obamacare. We also celebrate how we dodged a bullet and succeeded in blocking amnesty and the insurance bailout from the budget bill. No, we didn’t throw any touchdowns, but with this political franchise, not tossing interceptions is a victory. The prophet of lamentations has some good news for once!
We also delve into some stories you might have missed, from Republicans ruining one of the few court victories they ever secured to the Trump administration re-nominating the architect of Obama’s transgender agenda as commissioner of the EEOC.
- GOP agreed to give away court victory on Obamacare subsidies
- The tax bill actually makes code more progressive, Dem opposition is indefensible
