President Trump has been facing a wild insurgency in Washington D.C. ever since he stepped foot in the White House, but today he may be able to celebrate a major victory.
Trump waltzed into the White House with several ambitious legislative goals on the docket, all stemming from this time campaigning around the nation and listening to the American people. Then-candidate Trump ignited a passionate fire in the United States’ conservative majority, and the nation elected the businessman President last November in an astounding electoral landslide. America had spoken, and they had demanded that Washington get to work on immigration, healthcare, and taxes.
While the immigration and healthcare pieces of the Trump agenda have so far been stymied by liberal judiciaries and clandestine Deep State shills, it looks as though the Trump tax plan may make it through the legislative branch after all.
“Senate Republicans on Friday were confident that they had locked in enough votes to pass a sweeping tax overhaul later in the day. Wavering GOP senators offered their support and a holdout who worried it would add to the deficit all but conceded defeat.
“Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) Friday afternoon became the latest holdout Republican to move his name into the ‘yes’ column. The Arizona Republican announced his support hours after Sens. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) and Steve Daines (R. Mont.) made similar declarations. Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine) still hadn’t committed to the legislation, but said she was making progress in reaching her goals. That likely leaves Sen. Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) as the sole Republican expected to vote against the tax bill.
“’We have the votes,’ Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) told reporters.
“It could put Republicans one step closer to the dramatic reshaping of the tax code they have been talking about for years and deliver a legislative victory for President Donald Trump. The bill would cut tax rates on corporations, remove or limit longstanding tax breaks and subject fewer wealthy families to the estate tax.”
Perhaps signaling a massive change in attitude among the establishment cronies, RINO songbird John McCain indicated yesterday that he himself had been swayed to side with the President regarding the tax reform bill.
Could this be the momentum shift that the President will need heading into the new year? For too long, the “resistance” types had been stymying every piece of the Trump agenda merely in order to signal their opposition to the Commander in Chief that their fellow countrymen chose. Now, with one major victory under his belt, Trump could be free to revisit some of his previous hurdles in 2018.
