On Tuesday, the Senate passed the GOP tax bill along party lines, a measure that has been roundly condemned as a huge boon to the wealthy at the expense of the middle and lower classes. The bill includes tax breaks for private jet and golf course ownership, just to give you an idea of who was prioritized. The bill received a few new provisions after the vote, and will be revoted on in the House on Wednesday, according to CNN, but it doesn't look good.
MSNBC host Chris Hayes has been tweeting about the tax bill a lot, but this one pretty much sums up why the GOP's stance that the bill will hep the average American family is such a crock of bull.
"The typical American household, two parents, two kids, 7 limited liability partnerships, a dozen individual real state LLC’s, several investment vehicles throwing off streams of passive income, will be doing quite well!," he wrote.
