While the U.S. watches Brett Kavanaugh, the House passes a bill with $3.8 trillion more in tax cuts.

The down-to-the-wire 2017 tax act passed in late December contained a mix of permanent and temporary changes that had to result in a net increased cost that fell within a structural limit of $1.5 trillion that allowed the Senate to approve the bill with a simple majority. 

Without special rules in place, the Senate would vote under normal procedures, which can require 60 senators’ votes to pass a bill that is heavily opposed.

While the lusty adventures of Blah Kavanouch resonate, this article is one of those that really tell the story. Behind each colorful route, there is a plodding beat of rip-off going on, as the GOP once again empties the coffers while some nonsense is paraded in the press to distract.

The proof will come (and I wish to be remembered for this prediction) with the next Presidential election, when the GOP inexplicably goes underground, nominates a loser for a fraudulent, cheap campaign barely proving they're actually running; a rerun in short of the showy McCain campaign; because there's nothing left to steal.

We'll elect a Democrat, the treasury will fill up again, and bless my soul, the GOP will proffer an actual candidate to slurp it all up again. I've been watching this rhythm for years.

Welcome to Distraction Theater. Everybody's kept busy watching scene after scene after scene, while the ushers quietly pick their pockets.

I wish I could think that the election of a democrat would change things for the better, but that branch of the war party is also beholden to the oligarchs. However, I feel that the intentional polarization of the population using phony crap like "Russia did it" makes the re-election of Trump a more likely possibility. Remember when all the dems thought that the selection of Bush, the Idiot Son, was unlikely and Chaney's re-election impossible? My wishful thinking glasses are broken.
