If Libertarians behind Heritage Foundation want a Convention of States for a Balanced Budget Amendment, they should have opposed blowing a $2 Trillion hole in the National Debt with the #TaxScamBill.
But they *pushed* the bill.
They're hiding something.
1/
They don't want to *really* balance the budget; they want to eliminate what they consider the welfare state. They want to kill:
- Medicaid Expansion
- Obamacare
- Caps on greenhouse gases
- Assistance to children's: insurance, school lunches, disability support,
...
2/
- Retraining displaced workers
- Federal contract oversight (to make fraud easier)
- Public reports of OSHA findings (to hide worker safety violations)
- College PLUS loan program (cutting aid to students)
- FAA & TSA (➡️for-profit co's)
- Pricing controls for airlines
...

Just wanting to lay out a timeline of some of the skullduggery the @GOP (specifically @SpeakerRyan, @SenateMajLdr, and @DevinNunes) have been up to in a timelined tweet.

#TheResistance
09/30/16 GOP ignores warnings from the Intel community that Russians are hacking the election, instead choosing to focus on the HRC email "scandal."

12/11/16 McConnell blocked Obama from going public with the Intel Communities' assessment the Russians hacked the election, even after the Gang of 12 were briefed on the matter.

1.)

Eric, I'm going to be straight with you. You are not known as the smart Trump, so I am going to have to do multiple Tweets (a thread) to TRY to educate you. It turned out to be 15 tweets.

Yes, we know that all he cares about is "green".
2.)

He proved that with the #TaxScamBill. Got a lot for you guys with that one. #InheritanceTax

You got the "Green Thing" right, so let us talk about the #Racist thing. I know you believe what you say, but your problem is you do not know what #Racism or #Racist means.
3.)

Tell me what you think after you learn what it means, ok.

rac·ist

ˈrāsəst/

noun

a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

THREAD: I'm a small-business owner. A job creator. Met with my CPA; learned that @SenateGOP @HouseGOP #TaxScamBill #TaxScam will result in a massive net tax increase to my business & me, constraining employee wages, benefits, & our ability to hire.

@GOP will pay at ballot box.
2/ Talk to your accountant. If you run a small business or are an upper-middle-class professional, you are about to get hammered thanks to the @GOP, @SenBobCorker, @SenatorCollins, etc. You may think you're rich in their eyes—statistically you're right. But no.
3/ The @SenateGOP @HouseGOP @GOP is taking money from you—YOU, the real job creators—and giving $1.5 trillion to massive C-corporations. Country club Republican doctors, lawyers, accountants, small-business people who needed relief to expand? It's your pocket being picked.

1. #TAXscam explained by a nerd -
Imagine a video game 500 yrs ago. Even though everyone had to play every day, only Christian white males were allowed to earn points from everyone's work. Everyone could pass their points down to their children, but only white males had points.
2. It's 2017 & rich white males have more experience points than everyone else. Not only do they have more experience points than everyone else, but they also have more health, property, and education points. They even stole points from others.
3. They look at their points and they decide (as the super players) they want more points from the total points available. So, they get together to change the rules. Through rules, they take away the ability of other players to earn more health, property, and education points.

At the risk of being called a party pooper, I'd like to remind #TheResistance that: 1. #TaxScamBill if anything GOP may now try to shove faster now, suppository style; 2. #NetNeutrality & #NationalMonuments are still in danger; 3. #infrastructure spending & many state services
have been cut to the bone; 4.#CorruptionMustDie & so does #nepotism, but both alive & well; 5. #NazisInAmerica & other hate group rampant, & there is no #GunControlNow or even serious discussion of it; 6. #StateDepartment is being decimated & deserted by many career ppl & that is
one of USA ramparts against isolation & a means to avoid wars; 7. worldwide US credibility, relevance & trustworthiness, even by staunch traditional allies, is at an all time low; 8. ppl whose only credentials are closeness to 45 are still in key positions & some have made wrong

THREAD/ Each and every person who had a hand in crafting and passing the #TaxScamBill’s monstrous transfers of wealth to the super-rich must be held accountable.

Here are some of the conspirators who merit special attention:
corporatepresidency.org/tax-scam-namin…
GARY COHN decided the “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to make history by cutting taxes for the rich was too great to pass by. Cohn is on record saying, “The most excited group out there are big CEOs about our tax plan.” thehill.com/policy/finance…
DONALD TRUMP once said, “This is going to cost me a fortune, this thing. Believe me. Believe. This is not good for me.” Then went on to champion a #TaxScamBill that could save his family a billion dollars or more.

Congress has their hands full this week — A #TaxScamBill showdown, gun bills, Dream Act, CHIP funding, and, oh yeah, a potential government shutdown Friday at midnight. ⏰

Here's a quick rundown of what to expect and what to get loud about... (THREAD)
MONDAY NIGHT: The House will vote to move forward on the #TaxScamBill! Most likely to send it to Conference Committee, but *slight* chance they'll just pass the Senate bill. Either way, CALL YOUR HOUSE REPS NOW. 🔥📞🔥

☎️ #'s/script: 5calls.org/issue/stop-con…  (2/x)
If the #TaxScamBill goes to Conference Committee, a window of opportunity opens up to derail the bill. House/Senate could struggle to reconcile differences, previously agreed upon caveats may fail (👉Collins, Flake👈). We must get LOUDER than ever before!! (3/x)

If you spent the last week protesting the #TaxScamBill, calling, faxing, writing your senators every day, don’t despair.

You did the right thing.

This is a war to save democracy. Last night was a battle. If you’re still fighting, it’s not over.

Here’s what to do next.
First, don’t stop calling. Don’t stop faxing. Don’t stop going to protests.

Republicans need to KNOW what a big mistake they just made.

They need to KNOW you saw them. And you’re not letting them get away with it. And you vote.
Second. This bill isn’t on Trump’s desk yet. It goes to conference next.

I don’t know if we can stop it. But even if we can’t, we can kill parts of it.

Last night Democrats killed the #HillsdaleHandout AND the personhood clause.

Priority one should be killing mandate repeal.
