With the resulting negative impact on the federal deficit where will the funding required to repair and improve this country's crumbling national infrastructure, critically important to millions of small businesses and corporations, come from? America cannot continue to ignore the deterioration condition of its highways and interstates, its aging, weakening bridges, its dams and waterways, the outdated electrical grid, and our failing water delivery and sewer systems.

Yes, wealthy Republican donors are applauding Republican efforts and are renewing their promises of generous donations. However, Republicans would do well to enjoy the moment because their current state of euphoria will not last very long; in fact, it will last for less than a year.

Over the past year the American people have shown their great displeasure with many of the policies and actions taken by Republicans and President Trump, and that's why Democrats have had great success in various state elections across this country. Their attempt to destroy Obamacare was one of them and will come back to bite them.

That misguided, short-sighted move, coupled with this disastrous tax legislation, will serve to lay the groundwork for their political demise, starting when they have to face the wrath of the many millions of Americans who will pay them back for their acts of betrayal in the 2018 elections.
