House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed Wednesday that Democrats will rework the GOP tax bill if they successfully retake the House in the 2018 midterm elections.

Speaking at a Culver City town hall event as part of the “Repeal the Trump Tax” tour, Pelosi pledged that Democrats would overhaul the tax bill into one that “creates growth, creates good-paying jobs, as it reduces the deficit.”

“Over 80 percent of the benefits go to the top 1 percent,” Pelosi said of the GOP tax cuts. “Eighty-six million middle-class families will see a tax increase while they advertise it as a middle-class bill.”

According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, the average household will receive a tax cut of $1,610 in 2018. Only 5 percent of taxpayers will see increased taxes in 2018.

She is as dumb as Republicans voting to repeal Obamacare while Obama was in office. Different party, same stupid.

The only way it will be the same stupid is if they simply vote to "repeal" the bill, without any consideration of reworking or fixing, and repeatedly do so dozens of times despite the Senate's refused consideration or the President's certain veto. If any of those things happen I will thoroughly pissed off at the dems too.

But from the rhetoric it looks like they want to be specific: repeal the tax cut on the top 1% and perhaps raise the corporate marginal rate to 25-30% (Obama actually proposed reducing from 35 to 28% during his tenure, but the GOP wanted nothing done on anything period) -- any of these might be a no-go on veto though unless worked into a package and smooth-talked into Trump's hands.

They don't want to repeal it, they just want to vote in a show of resistance. Keeps their constituents happy, they can blame Trump for stopping them and, best of all, nothing changes so they don't risk being held accountable for any potential fallout.

There was no possibility of democrats working on the first draft. Republicans didn't need a single democratic vote to pass the legislation, so why would they have willingly made any concessions?

CBO estimated the tax bill will raise taxes for at least 25% of middle-income households within the next decade. And the federal income tax cuts for all middle-income earners expire in 2027 in the GOP bill. So Democrats could do one better and both raise the corporate rate and increase or make permanent cuts for middle and working class Americans.

Whether they do or not depends on whether they decide to continue to just be Republican lite.

Or how about they just stop wasting money by cutting spending and just have a flat tax?
