Who remembers at the start of Obama's administration, after the first economic stimulus, he wanted a second round of deficit spending to fix crumbling infrastructure? The Republicans nixed it, because it would increase the national debt. That is because they wanted to save that money until they were in power, and give it to their donors. The Republicans are as literally looting the federal treasury with this tax bill as if they opened the gates of Fort Knox and invited the corporate CEOs to fill up their private jets with gold bullion. And like when the Viet Cong launched the Tet Offensive, if you are going to do something truly, truly nasty, do it over your nation's biggest holiday, when people are distracted.
