“Hey, how did all this cash get stuck in my pockets? I demand answers!”
Bob Corker is shocked,*shocked* by a provision stuck in the Republican tax bill shortly before he conspicuously flipped his vote. But, surely, it’s just a coincidence. After all, if MAGA meant anything, it meant that the economic anxiety of the American people would be relieved if pass-through income for real estate developers without many employees was taxed more favorably. Build a wall, bring back the coal mining jobs, and lower the tax burden of landlords — that’s what Real Americans demand. So, clearly the timing of the Corker-enriching scheme and Corker’s legislative-saving change of heart was just a happy coincidence.
Even so, it has to be stressful when the whole world thinks you sold out the financial future of millions of Americans, past and present, just to make yourself a little richer. That’s why, if you need to shut up your conscience, we suggest you uncork a Corker Kickback.
