"I think now with what's happened with the hurricane, I'm going to ask for a speedup. I wanted a speed up anyway, but now we need it even more so."

Please, do explain to the rest of the class how this is going to help people flooded out of their homes?

Trickle. Down. What's so hard to understand? Heck, they should just abolish FEMA and not pass extra emergency money for Florida. Instead they should just cut the taxes of the Florida wealthy. It will inevitably end up helping the rest of us.

Wow, that's actually brilliant. We collected $180B in federal tax revenue from Florida last year, which his about the damage estimate. Figure 6.5 million total households, 650k "deserving" of a retroactive 2016 tax credit. Boom.

This.  And we're pretty much in the worst position, between Harvey and Irma and the wildfires in the west, to be handing out corporate welfare.

This should be obvious to every American.  Should be.

I'm sure any sort of tax 'reform' that Trump would sign off on would also weaken the economy.

It makes perfect sense to a Republican.  The 1% get richer. Their grass root folks don't use logic - they respond to religion and rhetoric.

They would pay to have their mansions rebuilt regardless of the federal tax structure. Unless you're trying to say that the only incentive the rich have to rebuild is if they get their tax break - which is absurd.

Proof that God did cause this hurricane and He's a Trumper. I wonder how much insurance money for Lago del Mar or whatever it's called Trump's going to embezzle before he has FEMA fix it.

He probably thinks passing a tax reform bill will give people a refund on their 2016 taxes. Kid of like how stores do price matching guarantees.

We should cut corporate taxes and just raise the taxes on the hurricane to make up the difference.

And dark skin.

We find that white Trump supporters randomly exposed to a black (versus a white) man in the context of soliciting their support for a housing-assistance policy were more opposed to the policy, angrier about the policy, and more likely to blame beneficiaries for their situation. http://www.theroot.com/study-a-picture-of-a-black-person-can-anger-t​ru​mp-supp-1802753905

Tax cuts for the rich.

In theory: Stimulates economic growth by giving employers more money to hire workers and expand.

In reality: Rich assholes who don't need it keep the money, government agencies forced to "cut spending" by eliminating important infrastructure and projects that people actually need and use, which leads to a crappier country

Either the GOP is too stupid to realize this, or they're just assholes who do realize this and want the plebeians to suffer.

I'll take door #2. This is the same bullshiat trickle down economics that Reagan started 100 years ago. I don't think the want the poor to suffer necessarily, I just think they don't give a shiat.

Of course passing tax cuts during the hurricane is a crime of opportunity.  Yet, the GOP is so hard pressed about tax cuts and spending cuts that they will end up not doing much to help the nation pay off hurricane destruction without going further into debt, which also seems to be a hot button issue at the moment.  So pick your battles very carefully, Republicans.  Raise taxes to help people with relief effort, or be evil dicks.

Don't these people realize that tax reform is dead? In order to make it work without sixty votes in the Senate, it needs to pay for itself. In order to pay for itself, they needed to gut the ACA, and free up $260 billion. Without the bullets, the gun is just a stick.

Dealing with the aftermath of one major hurricane, while being hit by another, the Western half of the country is on fire, and FEMA is running out of money?

Sounds like the PERFECT time to reduce the amount of revenue the government takes in.

The sad thing is that it COULD work in THEORY if the very people calling for it weren't also hoarding their money like a goddamn dragon.
