The Resistance Now: Republicans to face 'retirement parties' over tax bill

Tax bill passes … but could it retire Republicans?

Well that wasn’t the end to the year that many people were hoping for. Donald Trump signed the GOP’s tax bill on Friday, bringing to an end weeks of spirited protests by progressive groups.

Activists in the press gallery shouted “Kill the bill, don’t kill us”, and about 70 protesters were arrested, as the vote took place, but Republicans were soon celebrating Trump’s first legislative triumph as president.

Progressive organizations soon rallied, however, with Indivisible calling for activists to hold a series of “retirement parties” at Republicans’ offices.

1. Both of my senators,

AND my congressperson, are retiring -in one way or another. But I'll be damned if I'll give them a party. More like a boot in the . . .
