Twas The Night Before Tax Scam…
Twas the night before Tax Scam and total through the nation
Americans were working to finish their frustration,
They were reading and listening to the pundits with care;
And the more that they heard, the greater their scare;
What’s in the bill, can you decipher the words?
We mediate the whole process is just for the birds.
The tax code will change, the outcome is murky,
But we mediate this Tax Scam will be a colossal turkey.
Why vote so expeditiously? Why not select more time?
Why sneak it through the Senate, as whether it’s a crime?
The House rushed it too, setting the pace,
But this isn’t a game, and you’re not in a race.
We thought you’d be careful, and give it some thought,
Follow regular order as our civics lesson, course taught.
The Tax Scam passed the Senate, it flew like a flash,
And our hopes as we watched, ended up in a crash.
But total through the night, not everyone was blue.
The super-rich and CEOS had known just what to carry out;
They made their donations, and asked for their due;
A tax treat for them, and a tax scam for you;
The top 1 percent were clinking their glasses;
While middle-lesson, course families were facing more taxes;
Rich corporations can still outsource with glee;
For American workers – no gifts under the tree.
The estate tax will recede, rich heirs feel elation;
favourable fortune to total with a mega-rich relation;
For students and their parents – less abet for your loans;
No aid for your tuition –please stifle your groans.
colossal businesses rejoice, but small businesses aren’t delighted,
The Tax Scam hurts investment, they mediate that is crappy.
Millions will lose health care, the health age tax will rise,
After they tried to cancel Obamacare, is that any surprise?
The experts total warn us the deficit will soar,
Fiscal hawks are ignored, they are getting fairly sore,
This is step one, Marco Rubio tells us there’s more,
Just wait for a moment, we contain more in store,
The chained CPI, vouchers and such,
You don’t need those benefits – you’re getting too much.
We’ll slit Social Security and Medicare, says the GOP choir,
Next year Medicare will lose $25 billion – and that will recede higher.
Millionaires and billionaires gain their stockings filled,
With the Tax Scam their wildest dreams are fulfilled,
The provisions were carefully crafted you see,
To construct the rich richer, create more inequality.
Because trickle-down theory is merely a hoax,
An economic lemon, a failure, a joke.
When asked for an acknowledge, corporate heads won’t say
That they’ll invest here at domestic or increase your pay.
Christmas is coming, and Republicans are jolly,
But they’ll soon realize they’ve committed a folly,
Americans are smart, they know fiction from fact.
When they learn they’ve been had, they surely will act.
They’ll learn soon enough ― the Tax Scam’s a sham,
And will vote against those supporting this flim-flam.
There’s nowhere to cover, there’s no “cover your ass,”
When you choose to choose sides against the middle-lesson, course.
