"Tax Prom" with Mike Pence draws Tax March Chicken, protesters

The evening of Nov 16 featured a pro-GOP tax plan "Tax Prom" staring theocratic VP Mike Pence, $2,500 VIP tickets-and some uninvited guests making plenty of noise outside. The Tax March Chicken and Corruption Cleanup were in attendance, the former a reference to the refusal of Donald Trump to release his tax returns while peddling a tax "reform" bill to jack up middle class taxes and cut taxes on the rich.

Odd police behavior at Democrat/Indivisble/Not One Penny protest against Trump tax bill

On November 15, the Senate planned to vote on Trump's tax "reform" bill that would raise taxes on the middle class and cut them for the rich. No vote by 6:30PM that day, and at noon protesters were outside the Capitol East Front. Several Democratic members of Congress spoke, so a hefty Capitol Police presence was no surprise but their behavior was another matter. As soon as a known antifa journalist set up a camera on a tripod, police fanned out to surround the crowd.

Update 6PM Nov 15: GOP Sen Ron Johnson will vote NO

Trump tax plan draws protests, bill not published by self-imposed deadline

Donald Trump's tax "reform" bill to cut taxes on the wealthy and partially pay for them with tax hikes on the middle class was not released by its original self-imposed Nov 1 deadline, probably due to dissention preventing agreement on a bill. Meanwhile, protesters gathered on Capitol Hill and a billboard truck set up next to Trump Hotel to oppose the plan whatever form it finally takes.

Trump tax cut speech for Heritage Foundation draws protest, "Tax Chicken"

On the 17th of October, Donald Trump gave a speech for the Heritage Foundation at the Marriot at 901 Mass Ave. Organizers of the April 15th Tax March set up the "Tax Chicken" in the adjacent park, then they and other protesters marched onto the sidewalk where Heritage members and Trump supporters were filing in.
