unless democrats can come in and overthrow and repeal the tax cuts bill its a waste of time.  republicans have gotten what they voted to get through so they can could care less if the democrats win congress, they will just revert back to deficit hawks and be a nail in the democrats works….if the democrats can get their game together at all.

I expect better from RT than another "expert"/warmonger to discuss the Trump national security strategy. Should at least be a peace activist on to challenge him.

Too bad for people who's choices have made it where this or any other bill effects them. Has no effect on me or my life.
If you're a wage slave and allow some company to take taxes from you before they give you your earnings,
you be a silly fool. lol
These gov. swamp dweller talking heads are part of the problem. Never worked a real day in their life. Metromen.

The tax bill helped every one who pays taxes. 47% of the people filing tax returns don't pay at all.

Amos Soma · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

After 8 years of Obama spending the national debt through the roof, the Democrats are suddenly worried about the deficit.

Amos Soma · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Larry King, retire!! You were boring 20 years ago and you're even worse now.

Ilfart 218 · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Call these Corporate crooks on their bullshit when they trot out their entitlement program garbage. Entitlements are you pay into it so when you get sick/injured/unemployed you can draw from it and not starve or die. Stop letting these jackasses demonize safety nets.

Dan Nowman · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Shays is right about 2018 not being as good as Democrats think it is going to be, but they all don't understand what it means to have 56% disapproval rating (Real Clear Politics) and because left politics is all but completely left out in this country, that 56% seems conservative to me because the real progressive left is ignored by the established except when it comes to efforts to marginalize or eliminate it as a legitimate voice. Look at what establishment politicians have done to Bernie Sanders, the bipartisan Citizen's United, etc.  It's a D I S A S T E R !

Kathy Claytor · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

OMG, did that guy just say our military needs more money ??? More money than the next 10 combined isn't enough??? For fucks sake.

hoodiewoman louisiana · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Anti-Trump movement? You ain't seen anything until you see the dump the corporate Democrats movement! It's starting to gain momentum now. The election of 2018 will be a time of trial and error, as we learn how to best gut the smelly dead Democrat bottom feeding political fish. The presidential election of 2020 will be the test to see if the Dems will be sidelined in favor of a constitutional peoples' party. I want my Constitution and my Country back!

hoodiewoman louisiana · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Very nice necktie, Larry. And apparently neither speaker likes Trump !?!

Charles Wilson · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Make America great again? What? Going to mars? One small step for man one big step for fox studios. Bloody liars even your face shows it. America have got no allies. Face the facts bloody idiots.

uykczd · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

All Democrats must be voted out of office, then we elect Independant.

Dan Harris · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Look people, denial at this point is getting pretty old. The Republic is dead and not coming back. The corporate fascists are in charge and are not giving back what they worked so hard to steal. You are a debt/wage slave meant to work and consume and nothing more. Your hopes and dreams are irrelevent and voting is the very last way you will accomplish anything. You either fight the fascists or the fascists will own you. That is your choice and I am really really tired of waiting for you to realize it. Wait much further and I'll be too old and you will have to fight them by yourself.

Titus Robertson · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Get that JEWDOG out of here you commie bastard!!

My dear God, to take away health care from the elderly and poor in this country who are already suffering and cannot afford food, shelter and basic needs to live is a crime by any government but to do this to the American taxpayer who has paid all our working lives and now there are no jobs for us -while this over bloated government sits in their $1,000. Dollar suits and takes our tax dollars and gives them to multinational corporations and secret programs is right down Criminal! It's a shame upon every member of congress, senate and a shame upon the office of the president if he does not stop or amend proposed cuts to Medicare and Medicaid to citizens born in the USA who are about 65-68 years old. I watched congress created s loophole that allowed my Airlines to steal my pension, I've watched the greed in this Government grown into a beast without a heart. It's a death sentence to our nations elderly!
I voted for Trump and I'm asking him to protect the aging poor on Medicaid and Medicare!

Tellthetruth n/a · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

The GOP hopes they can buy votes with a few extra dollars in the paychecks of wage slaves. Most Americans have figured out that this bill is another scam. Unfortunately, the Dems have nothing to offer either.

Shan Ri Ha · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Can’t believe people could be so sycophantic as these blinkered Repugs, Who by the way screamed how much of a looney Trump was in the Primaries and did everything to stop him. Now they call him God basically. When you listen to these morons like this fool here make sure you have a bucket in front of you. What a pack of losers these creeps are. By the way Russia, Iran and Syria destroyed the U.S and Zionist israel’s ISIS terrorists. You yanks are selective truthers, the truth you select though are LIES.
Peace

chocomalk · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Didn't most of the Dems vote for this anyway?

PaulRevere Werner · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Why I even liked RT In the first place I’ll never know . What a waste of time . An old liberal interviewing a beta leftist and a do nothing rino . This is becoming worse than CNN and FOX

Janet Baker · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

The Democrats and the Republicans are both dead parties! You talk to any millennium person and they will tell you they don't believe in either of the parties. Why do we keep talking about them ourselves? They are so corrupt and out of line there's no way anyone with a brain would vote for either of those parties. I do hope that our president is on the right track although it is kind of hard to tell. But I'll tell you one thing right now president Trump is not a Republican or a Democrat. People seem to forget this! The Republicans are trying to suck all the credit out of everything Trump does. They don't deserve the credit for it. Especially when they won't even support their own president!

Larry looks like he's dying

TrickyVickey · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

This UN Assembly Representative is an ASSHAT. Defund the UN. We give them 80 Billion dollars PER YEAR. I think that is a damn nuff. Bring our soldiers home and let them rebuild our infrastructure or schools with that 80 billion a year.

TrickyVickey · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Henry Kissinger is a F-ing WAR CRIMINAL and you invoke HIS NAME?

Jose Lora · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

This 2 people are then responsible for doing nothing
Just look at the way they speak
They love this bill

Happy happy happy
Is like when they pass
The fedral reserve bank back in 1913 on around the same time
Theft

TrickyVickey · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Russian meddling? What was that shit John McCain did in Ukraine with his cookie delivering Bullshit.

Inisfad · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Trump’s tax bill is a good thing. Public opinion, that is based on mainstream news and globalists who are panicking over the Trump presidency, feels that the tax bill will be a detriment. But all working class and lower and middle middle class homes will see a difference. Anyone who says otherwise is a globalist shill.

Marie Conick · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Sounds great for Very Large corps., & The Chinese

Keith Croes · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Strange to know that Larry King, who entertained most of America on late-night radio across the country for years, is now working for RT. Not sure how I feel about RT, when all the personalities claim they have been asked/told to do nothing on behalf of the Russians.

john kennedy · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Democrats will continue to lose as long as they stand for nothing and keep their party rigged. The unity reform commision decided to keep superdelegates, voting to keep the party rigged for corporate candidates. People are sick of that. Yes republicans in congress are fleecing the country. The dems need to demonstrate they wont just do the same. Since they wont, if we want any sort of positive policy passed it will have to come from a new party.

BELL ONE · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

Which Mad House, did you Find this loon From W.T.F. America O BRIEN Helping not making America Great Sickafanint Fool

TrickyVickey · December 29, 2017 at 10:43 pm

How about we get out of the god damn WAR business. My investment in it has not paid off for me but pays off handsomely for some weapons producers and various other corporations. The people that have died to make some people Billionaires I bet their families don’t like our Empire building and Resource stealing. Some of them probably hate us for our freedom from breathing we gave them.

This congress is garbage. The GOP and democrats are garbage. It's so disappointing to see it go in this direction.
