If you managed to survive the repeal of net neutrality as well as the reintroduction of chocolate milk with 1 percent fat into the school lunch menu, make the best of the time you have left — Sen. Susan Collins says she’s a “yes” on the GOP’s tax bill that has been said will kill somewhere between 10,000 and 15,000 people every year … maybe everyone in America by the time it’s done.
SUSAN COLLINS is a YES on the final Republican tax bill.

Guy Benson notes that The Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist thinks Collins is “sadly” forfeiting the stature she gained by being one of the fatal “no” votes against the GOP’s “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.

Food for thought: If a progressive Democrat walks into a conservative Republican-owned bakery and asks for a “Please stop killing us” cake to deliver to Susan Collins … well, just check out these sweet cakes the Women’s March thought might ply Collins into opposing the tax bill.
Activists delivered these cakes to @SenatorCollins with an important message:
Kill this bill. Don’t kill us.

That’s cute, in a mildly disturbing way.

Still not full? Try these.
And yes, I'm serious. The #GOPTaxScam bill is that reckless, dangerous, and destabilizing. A vote for it cannot be justified on *any* grounds.

A Republican senator finally voting with the rest of the GOP majority … horrifying indeed.
