A Republican Christmas Carol

“I said, we’re going to have Christmas again.... With Trump as your president, we are going to be celebrating Merry Christmas again, and it's going to be done with a big, beautiful tax cut.” (Santa J. Trump)(1)

Republican Senators comment on why this tax plan should benefit the wealthy while cutting health care and other essential services for the poor and middle class and even raising many of their taxes:

“I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who wonít help themselves, wonít lift a finger and expect the federal government to do everything.”
- Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)(2)
“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing, as opposed to those that are just spending every penny they have, whether itís on booze or women or movies.”
- Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)(3)

“For I was hungry and you told me food stamps are wasteful. I was thirsty and you called me lazy. I was a stranger and you deported me. I was naked and you told me to get a job. I was sick and you took my health care away.” (The Gospel According to Trump)

“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.” (The Real Gospel: Matthew 25:40)
