I know tax bills aren't as obviously threatening as the ACA repeal, but this is very dangerous in it's own way. It is a series of tax bills like this that have made conditions geometrically worse for working and middle class people since the time of Reagan. Like all Republican tax policy in my life time, this bill is designed to increase wealth inequality and harm people who work for their money rather than inherit it. This is yet another dramatic tax cut for the rich at the expense of everyone else that is expected to damage the economy the way all such tax cuts have done while shrinking tax revenues at a time when they are also planning to dramatically increase military spending so that they have an excuse to cut social services.

Please resist this with the same energy we resisted ACA Repeal.

If you have Republican Senators, or Democrats Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, and Joe Donnelly call, fax, or protest in person, asking them to stand against the bill with their Democratic colleagues.

* Today I gimped all the way to the book drop and back. It infuriates be how painful and exhausting this is, as the distance would have meant nothing to me before I got sick. Books needed to go, so I went. I lunged when I got home, and my legs went out from under me when I got up to start dinner, but it was a short fall and the sofa was there to catch me so I'm not hurt. I did use up most of the pain resistance and spoons, but I expected that. Litter really needs changing, but it will have to wait and all the things needing feeding got fed before I left as I knew it would be bad.

We scored a car appointment for Monday, but Squirrel is bleeding money on ubers to work until then, and I am trapped here. The library will carry until then with what I dropped today.

Thanks to a kind donation, we will have enough cash by Monday to fix the battery wiring assuming nothing is dramatically more wrong than expected. I'm still down about 70.00 on bills, plus we need cat food and toilet paper, but we will survive the month, I think, assuming no more emergencies happen. I'll still need to catch up somehow, and we still need front tires before the rains come for sure, but given this car is just old enough to drink, these small things going wrong is understandable.

* I also voted today. Yes, it is July and no one is thinking about voting, but my state has a lot of primaries. I know, I know, it's an off year and no one is thinking about voting right now, and the only races on the ballet were Port and Council-at-Large. Not glamorous, I know, but important. It's in these little local elections republicans kick our asses because they vote in every single one. We NEED to vote in every single one. Every single primary. (In my state it's open primaries, with top two going on to the general. This means that you can get two Republicans in November or two Democrats, or a Democrat and a Green or Libertarian. Primary turn out can determine if it's a lose/lose election or a win/win. People of Washington? Let's always aim for the Win/Win). Every single race even if's it's just for dog catcher. Every single General election. Yes even in an off year.

Vote early if you can, because it's better to find out you've been summarily disenfranchised by some bullshit Republican algorithm that decides there can only be one registered Jane Smith or Maria Sanchez in the entire country and therefore all of them are voting illegally early. The earlier you find out, the more time you have to fight to get your citizen's rights back from the Autocrats. Voting in primaries does that too. Better to find out in July and have time to get it sorted for November.

If you have a chance to vote? Do it. Use it or lose it.

* I was reading Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by @Seanan McGuire today and Tavy the Tiny Terror got really excited about the book for some reason and was aggressively sniffing and cuddling and head rubbing it for about 75 pages, before lightly licking my ear on Important Cat Business.
