The quote “Oh! What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive” refers to how complicated life becomes when people start lying. It originally referred to a love triangle in the play “Marmion” by Sir Walter Scott. Currently this has been the practice of our Congress. This group of people have used every rosy sounding bit of tripe available to them to forward their agenda. They are no more than con men in nice suits. With the advent of TOTUS they have used his Tweet storm as a cover for their own nefarious deeds. His cabinet choices were at best poor but this Congress granted them access to push their personal agendas in healthcare, education, EPA (our air and water quality). Now the recent speedy crafting of Tax Reform and cuts will give us another gut punch while the lies keep flowing. All of this because they do not give a damn about the oft cited “American People”. Since they never asked or explained in plain words what this legislation was or would do gives rise to many questions. Several questions involving the actual effects of the cuts , why are the cuts for the middle and lower income folks saddled with an expiration date while the higher earners cuts continue?  The deceptive practices of this Congress should be a chargeable offence under the law but since this Body is untrustworthy, there will nothing done unless we the voters do and say something about it. Our course of action is call, write, tweet our representatives and let them know our feelings about this poor legislation.  Our own elected officials have apparently taken to scamming us about legislation and we have never as far as I know taken them to task for it. Looking back a few years: The lied about the ACA and would not support it, they ignored Trumps unfitness to serve (so they could get their own agenda moving), they obfuscated the truth about the economy (which is growing however slow) and they dislike the Dodd Frank act since it offers consumer (us) protection against the deceptive practices of financial institutions. Apparently these actions are more about appearing to be true to their word ( which we should already know is worthless). Given the current circumstances and potential harm to us, why do we want to keep these folks in office?
