Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
And the "tax bill" (it was changed at the last minute with lots of parts not even typed, instead scribbled in the margins so hard to know exactly what it was) was passed 51-49 during the night.

It is, of course, an atrocity. Done in a complete rush by a regime that knows its main actors are about to be indicted (see Flynn).

So far the usual view was that US institutions were successful in their power checks. This shows how wrong this is on what truly matters. This will be a huge transfer of wealth to the super rich, coupled with a de facto destruction of Obamacare (the mandates are needed for it to work), that will be extremely hard to reverse.

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed. Gandhi
