Drinking Liberally Friday (but not the next)

This Friday, in the spirit of the season, we’ll be playing a game of Santa vs Jesus. Come early so you can pick your winning team! A quick note: we will not be meeting next Friday the 29th

The Grinch came early. The GOP rushed through their tax bill and it’s now waiting for the president to sign. Of course he’s not going to sign it before the new year because then automatic spending cuts to Medicare and other programs will kick in, which the GOP knows won’t be popular in the mid-term election year. So if he signs it after the new year, those cuts won’t happen until 2019. The bill will also get rid of the individual mandate, oh, and even open up oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And of course with that tax bill passed, congress is heading home for the holidays before voting on a DACA fix, putting a number of Dreamers at further risk.

So it seems that in the conservative world, Santa only visits the rich and powerful.

But enough of that. This is the season to be reminded of all the good in the world, and there’s still plenty of that. And many of those good-doers will be at Drinking Liberally tomorrow, so join us starting at 6pm in the back room of the Piper Down!
