GOP: Win first, consequences later

Republicans seem so focused on getting a legislative win that the details and consequences of their "tax reform" bill appear at best secondary. Chasing faster economic growth through tax cuts has been shown over the last decades to always fail and yet they persist.

Also clear is that the "reform" bill will serve corporate interests and the bottom lines of the top one percent.

This result will only increase the income and net wealth disparities that are already hurting the many voters who elected President Trump and created Republican majorities in both houses. The Republicans are effecting the very mantra they live by which is that government is the problem and not the solution.
