Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

President Trump has been willing to accept almost anything to close the deal on his giant tax cut bill before Christmas, including staying mum about a measure that would allow illegal immigrants to pocket the more generous child tax credit included in the package.

Illegal immigrants have been collecting the payoff from the "refundable" tax credit for years because of an IRS interpretation of how the rule was drafted. The Republican-controlled Congress this fall had a chance to correct that in the tax code overhaul that in the Senate version doubled the child tax credit to $2,000 and expanded eligibility.

The House bill increased the child tax credit to $1,600 and upped the income cutoff to receive it.

For starters, I believe the word you're seeking is "here," not "hear."

You're welcome.

So you don't believe in Habeas Corpus or the Right To Trial. Things that the Constitution guarantees to all people, not just citizens.

Why do you hate Habeas Corpus and the Right to Trial? Is it because you're a totalitarian fascist licker of jackboots, or do you have other reasons?

If you were worried about it you wouldn't have committed it in the first place.

Oops.

I suppose there's a good reason why you would condemn your own hands.

Not providing you the pleasure you seek?
