Will Trump Haters Derail Tax Bill?


Donald Trump has faced more intra-party opposition than any President in the last 40 years. From the 17 candidate field he faced in a contentious primary, to his candidacy for president after the primary when many GOP candidates refused to endorse the would be president.

His first year in office has been marred by congressional inability to craft legislation that is reasonably similar to what President Trump campaigned and won the presidency on.

We've seen repeated embarrassing failures in healthcare reform, and the inability of the  Senate to pass "Kate's Law."

Now some members of the Senate are threatening to get in the way of Trump passing comprehensive tax reform. Among other things, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) wrote on Twitter Friday that he was dissatisfied with the size of a tax credit that low-income families can claim for their children.

Whether or not these tweets signal a vote against the bill is something only Senator Rubio knows for sure but he can potentially torpedo both the 2018 midterm and the President's first and perhaps only term with if he fails to vote yes to the historic tax reform measure.

  1. Trump haters?? Oh yeah, those with a balanced state of mind and intelligence. DT's first year has been marred by his own epic ineptitude and incompetence, in addition to the R's in the Congress/Senate who care about money, not the people. You know, the 'guys and gals' that you currently support who are attempting to pass the most inane and unpopular tax bill ever created. Tax reform possibly could fail as it will be close but the R's have already torpedoed themselves for both 2018 & 2020 elections. You seriously support this boobs?????? You really must not like sad...bigly
