Plutocracy gone wild at SwampFest: GOP expects Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will seal the deal for midterm elections

NPR, 10/4/2017

At left, reported in  Republicans push nearly $1.5 trillion tax bill through Senate after late-night negotiations.  (Wisconsin State Journal, 12/2/2017)

At right is a partial screenshot of Tax Cuts and Jobs Bill amendments, tweeted by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), with the comment:  This is so bad. We have just gotten list of amendments to be included in bill NOT from our R colleagues, but from lobbyists downtown. None of us have seen this list, but lobbyists have it. Need I say more? Disgusting. And we probably will not even be given time to read them.

Obviously, some lobbyists were invited to the GOP tax-cuts-for-the-rich SwampFest.
