GA Republicans Mobilize Behind Trump Big Lie Tax Reform

Georgia Republicans once more give us “Lies: And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them” as Senator Al Franken once wrote.
Americans have now had 28 months, since Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy, to understand the empirical facts that show conclusively that Republicans, led by Trump, have made lying a way of life in American politics. Actually, Trump had been telling the Trump/Republican biggest Big Lie of all—that Obama was not a native-born U.S. citizen—for at least four years before announcing his presidential bid in 2015.
The media have ably catalogued Trump’s lies since he was inaugurated, which I believe numbered about 300 when this list was compiled in July 2017.

Georgia’s Congressional Republican contingent has eagerly gone along with Trump’s lies. IndieDems has singled out Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue and Representatives Barry Loudermilk and Karen Handel as the most prominent Republicans for whom this egregious, in-your-face violation of God’s Commandment means nothing.
  • Georgia’s Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse spit in God’s face, for example, by not batting an eye when Trump claims, without a shred of evidence, that millions of illegal votes in 2016 skewed the election outcome, or that Obama had Trump Towers bugged.

The unwavering 60 year-old truth about the Republican Party: Republicans have no sense of decency.

And now, Trump and his Georgia lap dogs have mobilized the full force of their lying skills in support of another of Trump’s Hitlerian-level Big Lies, the tax package now being considered by Congress.
