~Senate Has Passed the GOP’s Sweeping $1.5 Trillion Tax Reform Plan~

 Jubilant Republicans pushed on early Wednesday, December 20, to the verge of the most sweeping rewrite of the nation’s tax laws in more than three decades, a deeply unpopular bill they insist Americans will learn to love when they see their paychecks in the new year.

After midnight, the Senate narrowly passed the legislation on a party-line 51-48 vote.

On Tuesday night, December 19,  in the Capitol, any residual semblance of bipartisanship – and you would have been hard-pressed to find one in recent months – wheezed its death rattle. The Republican-controlled Congress passed a largely unpopular tax reform bill along strict party lines in both the House and the Senate; not a single Democrat in either chamber voted “yes.”

~~VERY PERSONAL THOUGHTS~~

I was born in an Island in the Caribbean, an island surrounded by water, big water. My country is, and will always be, Puerto Rico. I was born in 1950.

Puerto Rico became a commonwealth in 1952.

This means that I grew up under the shade and influence of the United States of America.

I went to a private, Catholic school from kindergarten through high school. That’s a total of thirteen years of learning, adapting and embracing the “American way”.

These were my ingrained perceptions.

It was my dream to come to the United States and live the rest of my life here. I was able to live my dream in 1999 when I moved to Florida. That year, my dream come true. As years have gone by, I have matured, aged, (if you will) and I have seen the American nature up close and personal.

I understand that there’s not a thing that is perfect, there’s not a nation that can claim to be the perfect place but the America that I was taught about throughout my formative years was the “best country in the world”. I believed that.

It was ingrained in my mind and my nature … I believed it all hook, line and sinker.

I must confess that I haven’t really been a political person. Politics started to creep a bit into my mind during the Obama presidency. At that time is was barely on the sidelines of my perspective.

It wasn’t until that questionably ‘memorable‘ day when HE descended the escalator and began his tirade about the Mexican people that I started paying close attention.

Much has been said since that moment. Many unsavory comments, actions, statements, bold-faced lies have I seen and heard from the individual who rode down that escalator.

Those sane Americans who have been paying attention, who have a shred of decency, morality, honesty know what I mean.

Today, as I write this, I am very sad to see where the American governance has descended to.

Republicans just declared war on the middle class, looted America wholesale, and pulled off the biggest robber baron heist in modern history.

Let’s call it what it is:

TREASON against their fellow countrymen.

DON’T YOU EVER FORGET THIS!

“Occupy Democrats”

Today, my alliance is to my country, Puerto Rico.

Today the ingrained perceptions of America, which I’ve held for more than 60 years, have been shattered to smithereens by the actions of this ‘so-called president’ and the shameless enabling of the Republican members of Congress.

These enabling members of Congress have gone along with HIM because there are secondary personal gains for them.

THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I KNEW, THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA I ADMIRED, THIS IS NOT THE AMERICA THAT I WANT TO BE A PART OF.
