Yesterday, a traveling tour called Tax Cuts Work, hosted by a group called the “Job Creators Network,” arrived in Centennial to present GOP Rep. Mike Coffman with an award for his help passing the controversial Trump tax cut legislation. Depending on who Coffman is speaking with, it’s an award he might not draw attention to:

And apparently there were some technical difficulties during Coffman’s acceptance speech.

    Perfect metaphor for November.

    So lame. I'll buy them a new microphone with the money I'm saving from tax cuts, no problem!

      These tax cuts?

       

      First, the tax reform hasn’t yet resulted in appreciably higher wages for American workers. Real average hourly compensation actually fell in the first quarter after the tax reform was passed.

       

      Official data for the second quarter isn’t available yet, but private data isn’t looking encouraging. PayScale’s index of real wages shows a dramatic deterioration in the period.

        Nutlid's talking about this tax cut, apparently:

        Normally, a party that gives away $2 trillion without worrying about where the money will come from can buy itself at least a few votes. But Donald Trump’s tax cut remains remarkably unpopular,

      Too bad the government had to borrow a trillion dollars to cover your tax cut of $12.67 a pay period.  Do you understand math you fucking moron.  You Tea Party warriors are borrowing a TRILLION ($1,000,000,000.00+) dollars THIS year.  Ken Buck should be ashamed of his vote to explode the deficit to pay for his tax cuts for the elites.  The deficit hasn't climb this fast since Bush was in office.  Tells you something about the fiscal constraints of Republicans.  Of course, Republicans will use the staggering deficit to demand cuts to our social safety net all in the name of being patriotic.  What a bunch of turds.

      Sorry, Moddy.  Mics are way more expensive than $5.

    Hope Mike Coffman has more success with other maneuvers re: Republican Family Values.

    A Colorado couple adopted a child from Peru. Now they fear she could be deported.

    Coffman owns this vote to raise the deficit to a trillion dollars a year.  Dems should run ads non-stop on all media platforms showing the results of decreasing corporate taxes by 75%.  It exploded the deficit.  He can't worm out of this one like he did with the ACA repeal vote.  This one is on him.
