Positive Donnie has no idea how to read a bill let alone write one.  Is there one person in the WH that has any experience in major policy reform?

Word template for all future White House press releases:

"The Administration will not be releasing a version of <blank>, instead relying on <blank> to take the lead."

/Trump is a <blank> <blankety> <blank> with <blank> for <blank>.
 
2017-08-24 06:50:25 PM  
"Congress will take the lead because we don't know what the fark we're doing, but then we will swoop in and claim it was all our idea anyway, unless it doesn't pass."

Official emphasizes WH never committed to releasing its own bill proposal. Says more important than details is that Hill pass something.

Yes. One thing we all know about laws is that 'something' is far more important than the details.

How hard can it be to write "Cut rich people's taxes, fark the poor"?
 
2017-08-24 06:56:04 PM  
Because they don't have one of those either?
 
2017-08-24 06:56:28 PM  
Hahahahaha.

The incompetence is actually working in the favor of the people. Who knew?
 
2017-08-24 06:59:23 PM  
Of course not.  Because you can't assume any blame for when it fails when you had nothing to do with it.  But you can blame everybody else for failing to get it done the way you wanted it.  Even though you never realistically had any idea how that should be.

Yeah, maybe there is a *insert supreme being* after all.

It could raise taxes on him and have the title "Trump tax cuts" and he would sign it with gusto.
 
2017-08-24 07:17:36 PM  
This asshole is clueless... which inevitably makes him dangerous. Maybe he will have another media event with flashing cameras like his worthless signing statements. I just revisited his list of BS Executive Orders, which in most cases actually did jack squat other than gutting environmental protections.

ImpendingCynic: Because they don't have one of those either?


Of course they don't.  When you're spending eight years shrieking about Obama and Benghazi and pretending to repeal the ACA dozens of times over, who has time to come up with anything?

Of course they don't.  When you're spending eight years shrieking about Obama and Benghazi and pretending to repeal the ACA dozens of times over, who has time to come up with anything?


But he does have time to tweet about other people spending years shrieking and not coming up with anything.
 Priorities, you see.

This is the least surprising thing I've read all day, and I spent most of the day reading Rick Romero's memoirs.

Pence has some. I hear it generally had disastrous results, but at least he has some idea in principle of how you're supposed to get to the point where you find out whether it's disastrous.

eurotrader: Positive Donnie has no idea how to read a bill let alone write one.  Is there one person in the WH that has any experience in major policy reform?


No. No they do not.

Most administrations, even if the people at the top don't know what they're doing, at least bring with them experienced staff members with some amount of capability.

This one did not.
 
2017-08-24 08:21:24 PM  
These people are all stupid and completely incompetent.

The incompetence is the only thing saving us from them.

Lao Tsu says "Just as the journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step, a tax bill begins with a single word..."

In this case, FFUUUUUUUUUUU
 
2017-08-24 08:22:02 PM  
I can see their plan now.

If you have money, you keep more money
If you have no money, you get no money
If you have enough money to get by, expect to keep less money until you have no money.

They're Republicans, expect the worst.

So, just like healthcare reform?

President numbnuts brings absolutely nothing to the table.  Zero.  Zilch.  Nada.

Somebody please remind me again why we're spending tax dollars protecting this worthless shiatgibbon.

Just today, Speaker Ryan visited a Boeing plant in Everett, WA to try to sell the workers on his new tax plan that will cut corporate taxes and "provide more jobs and higher wages,"

Funny thing is, WA Dems recently gave Boeing the biggest state tax cut in American history and still had benefits cut, wages depressed, and hundreds of jobs slashed.

What a slap in the face. In short, fark Paul Ryan.

Sometimes I have wonder if I am trapped in some sort of dark political satire.  Writers!  If you can hear me stop tormenting me!!  Proceed to the final act already!

My last boss is well qualified to work for the Trump administration.

When you've got a skeleton crew in Treasury and you hate the IRS, it's not surprising you don't have a plan to submit and want Congress to do all the work.
 
2017-08-24 08:29:34 PM  
Take the lead == take the blame =/= take the credit
 
2017-08-24 08:37:20 PM  
Trump's tax reform just released, simple and clear:

1. Trump don't pay no taxes.
2. You do.

Clear?

Because it's still bad form to let even a useless figurehead be assassinated?

He has no plan, he's never had a plan for anything.

Raising taxes on the upper class, especially for businesses named after the owners is something, isn't it?

Priebus was competent in a shiatty way, but Trump never listened to him, and fired him anyway.

Iskur's Trump Insult Generator
"President Trump is a frequently bankrupt megalomaniacal obnoxious narcissist."

I swear to God that thing gets more accurate every time you use it.  I only hope Iskur took steps to prevent it from achieving sentience.

Trump is actually worse than useless.

Giving more money to people who are already wealthy with help everyone. Trust us. Pay no attention to the fact that this has literally never worked ever.

Pretty sure that the guy who killed Hitler spoke fluent German.
 
2017-08-24 09:06:33 PM  
Of course not.
a) he doesn't have to do anything
2) he doesn't have the staff to craft it
d) he can blame the GOP leadership for its inevitable failure
 
2017-08-24 09:06:50 PM  
This is probably for the best.

For the GOP chucklefarks in Washington? Very hard.

And now we know why he doesn't pay anyone.
 
2017-08-24 09:16:04 PM  
I can give you almost a 100% guarantee I know what it'll entail.

"Anyone making more than $1,000,000 annually shall pay no taxes of any kind. Everyone else gets the hose again."

The issue is while they want to fark the poors they don't want to get poors on their sexbits because they are afraid it might be contagious...

Like Vietnam.
