FEATURING RICHARD (RJ) ESKOW – Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer warned Republicans this week as they passed their behemoth tax bill skewed to the rich that it, “will be an anchor around the ankles of every Republican.” Indeed Schumer and other Democratic Party leaders are also celebrating the passage of the tax bill because they see it as lighting their path to retaking both the House and Senate next November.

The special election in Alabama which gave the liberal party a surprise seat in a deeply red state helped fuel that optimism. Now, the passage of the deeply unpopular tax bill could help push that momentum to political victory for Democrats. But, as has been the case for years, Democrats are often their own worst enemy.
