No, the tax reform bill passed by the Senate did not signal the “death of America” as we know it.

Senate GOP’s tax reform bill just paved the way for Obamacare repeal with this major achievement

It was the vile Obamacare bill that killed decent and affordable health care for millions.

Via Daily Caller.

The Senate passed a tax reform bill early Saturday that gave Republicans a rare legislative victory amid a recent famine of achievements….

Like all major legislative packages that come before Congress, there was a lot of heated rhetoric voiced against it before its passage. Tax cuts for the rich at the expense of the poor. Puts America further into debt. It won’t help our economy at all, etc.

These are all typical complaints about Republican tax plans. But what was unusual was the reaction to the passage of the bill by many prominent liberals.

Judging by these responses, you would’ve thought the GOP had just enacted the forced resettlement of all millennials into gulags.

“America died tonight,” bemoaned liberal journalist Kurt Eichenwald on Twitter. “Economic suicide adopted to feed the insatiable greed of donors, who have been refusing to dole out $ to GOP until they got their tax cuts. Voters fooled by propaganda and tribal hatred. Millenials: move away if you can. USA is over. We killed it.”….

“And that’s it. By a vote of 51-49, taken at nearly 2 a.m. on a Saturday morning, the U.S. Senate has just voted to gut the U.S. tax code, with implications for every American,” tweeted progressive meteorologist Eric Holthaus. “A bunch of old white men are applauding as democracy dies in the darkness.”….

    I just loved in the Weekend Update when Tammy said that the Hollywood crowd stopped raping each other long enough to come out against this tax bill! Lol! That was perfect!

    ‘Voters fooled by propaganda’ relative to gov’t finances. Why yes I do remember 2008 when Obama consistently criticized Repubs for running up the national debt putting the future in danger. And then after he was elected, he acted to double what Bush did. And then in 2012 he framed Romney as representing Greedy Fat cats. So fool me once, fool me twice, and voters elected the multi-millionaire outsider in 2016. Most voters see Crying Wolf as Propaganda 101. What else you got?

    These libs have to be emotionally exhausted. Everything is doomsday, apocalypse, death death death…. the end of life as we know it. They are being told that THIS time it’s the end of the Trump presidency; but then it’s not. Until the next time, THIS is the end of Donald Trump’s presidency; except it isn’t. But THIS time it REALLY is the end of Trump’s presidency; except it isn’t. At some point will they grow weary of the roller coaster and step away from it?
