    Gillespie 43

    Reading more about the tax plan…….I definitely do not like that all of these bills need to be so big. 400 pages are needed to “simplify” ?

    That said, it looks like I will not be adversely affected by it, as far as I can tell so far.

    Will Senate Republicans pass it?

    It’s going to be rough sledding for the tax bill. According to one poll 60%, at the get go, don’t like it. Ouch!

  7. mnw says:


    Sure! I figure we can ABSOLUTELY count on McCain & the 2 lameducks, don’t you? When have those guys ever let us down, right? Look how easy it was to repeal and replace. This one will be a little chip shot.

    One thing for sure, though: There won’t be a single DEM vote for it. Nada. Zero. None. Null set. (Manchin has already announced “no”.)

  8. janz says:

    I wonder if there will be a viable challenge to Manchin in the next election?

    6. I find it hard to believe. there will be a ton of push polls. The GOP has to play to its base and pass this. The upper middle class and upper class do not need a tax reduction, because they will benefit the most from the higher growth in the economy. the most important aspect is reducing corporate tax rates. Moving from anemic growth to 4% growth would solve a lot of problems and that will come from corporate tax cuts.

    I am watching the 2nd debate between trump and her thighness.

    Thighness got owned in the pre debate and in the debate.

  11. Mr.Vito says:

    Gravis poll is registered voters. why?

  12. Tina says:

    Donna brazille wanted biden to replace her thighness, after she fainted.

  13. Tina says:

    Donna Brazile considered replacing Hillary Clinton with Joe Biden as the nominee just weeks before Election Day: (link:

  14. NYCmike says:

    Interesting that Donna Brazile wrote she was terrified for her life after Seth Rich was murdered……maybe Sean Hannity was her ghostwriter, Robbie?

  15. Tina says:

    Donna brazile sounds like she is alt right.

    The jebots need to go after her.

  16. Blobbie says:

    “Trump beat Hillary by a whopping 63-27 margin last year ”

    Jeb would have won by a 64-26 margin you Chumps

  17. Redmen4ever says:

    Gravis only does registered voter polls.

    here’s the link

    On p. 6 of the attached cross-tabs, is a breakdown of voter intention by “liklihood” (possibly this means liklihood of voting). In any case, it shows Northam well ahead among those who are very likely, and Gillespie ahead or else it’s close among those who are likely or somewhat likely.

    Donald Trump’s administration set to DEPORT 300,000 refugees from US

    DONALD Trump’s government has announced around 300,000 refugees living in the country can be deported over the next few months.

  19. Tina says:

    Look for more triggering.

    The emergency status for Central americans to be revoked.

  20. Tina says:

    Rtheir protective status needs to end, no war and no drought.

  21. Mr.Vito says:

    Looking at Gravis crosstabs… some similarities to yesterday. Most undecideds are

    no degree

    Disabling parts of the brain with magnets can weaken faith in God and change attitudes to immigrants, study finds

    By shutting down the threat-processing centre of the brain, scientists weakened people’s faith in God and made them less prejudiced

    Rand paul assaulted at his home in ky by registered drat.

  24. Tina says:

    It is being reported as an acquaintance. I thought rand was a cw permit holder

  25. Mr.Vito says:

    From CNU poll:

    “Do you see your vote choice for governor this year as a way to send a message to President Trump and the Republicans who control Congress?” (if yes support or disapproval)

    No: 84
    Yes, support: 0
    Yes, disapprove: 14

    No: 31
    Yes, support: 12
    Yes, disapprove: 57

    No: 65
    Yes, support: 29
    Yes, disapprove: 4

    This does not appear to be a referendum on the republicans….

    independents vastly don’t care, few republicans are protesting with their vote, many more democrats are supporting with their vote…

  26. Mr.Vito says:

    22: well there is the definitive proof… atheists’ and globalists’ brains don’t work right.

    If Rand Paul was assaulted at his home for political reasons that’s a big deal.

    Thank you, never trumper.

    Tthe fat slob must have wrote that on deck of the nro cruise line.

    Facebook page of the man who assaulted Senator Rand Paul

  32. Tina says:

    The FBI is saying the assault isn’t political, because he was an ‘acquaintance’ from Sen Paul’s old medical practice…

    Yeah, but he has not practiced in a long time.

    The fbi also said iraq had wmds.

  33. Tina says:

    The fbi director also cleared hilkary before starting an investigation.
