    So what?

    Not sure where you got any of this based on what I said....

    Complete load of nonsense - but I'm not overly interesting in rehashing why you are 100% wrong on Citizens United. There is an old thread about it should you have any interest. But on the topic - Clinton outspent Trump about 2-1.

    And your claims of "foreign money laundering" only serves to diminish your own credibility.... got any evidence for this nonsense?

    Of course the Democrats won't try to justify their votes that way.

    If, indeed, the average voter pays less in taxes, the Democrats will take a hit on that issue. If, as some predict, many voters will wind up paying more, then the Republicans will take a hit.

    It it's a mixed bag, some pay more others less, then it will be a wash.

    The argument of the Democrats is that the tax cut is for the rich. That's how they'll justify their votes. The real reason for voting against the tax bill, though, is exactly the same as the Republicans' reason for attempting to overturn the ACA: It was written by the other party.

    The real world result of the tax cut will be an increase in the deficit, but no one cares about that any more.
