The GOP/Republican Tax "Reform" Bill is really just a Christmas present for the Scrooges of the world with the promise of hurting the Tiny Tim's of the world from one of the top republicans. Its basically what Freedom and the Spirit of the Constitution would look like, if it were upside down (i.e. they make sure the rich are more "equal" than the rest of us by crushing the economy for the poor and middle class).

Why the Republicans passed this particular tax "reform" bill...
CNN: Hill Republican dilemma: Dash to pass tax reform or face donor backlash
NY Post: GOP’s big donors threaten to close wallets if tax reform isn’t passed
WASHINGTON – Republicans have a lot riding on tax reform — including campaign contributions.
The failure by the GOP-led government to score a significant legislative victory in the year since President Trump was elected has caused some Republican donors to close their wallets.
“I’ve just reached my breaking point with it,” said Dan Eberhart, CEO of Canary LLC, an oilfield services company. “Do something for goodness sakes.”
In protest, he’s stopped sending donations to the National Republican Senate Committee – the main fundraising campaign for Senate Republicans. Instead he’s been meeting with Steve Bannon, Trump’s former chief strategist, who is courting GOP primary challengers to blow up the establishment of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Politico: Angry GOP donors close their wallets 'I’m sick and tired of nothing happening,' one contributor says of the party's legislative failures.
Republicans are confronting a growing revolt from their top donors, who are cutting off the party in protest over its inability to get anything done. Tensions reached a boiling point at a recent dinner at the home of Los Angeles billionaire Robert Day. In full view of around two dozen guests, Thomas Wachtell, a retired oil and gas investor and party contributor, delivered an urgent message to the night’s headliner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell: Just do something.
With so much pressure from BIG donors the politicians/"statesmen" didn't even bother to read the bill...

Colbert is referring to the fact that "Supply Side Economics" Republicans have been using for the past 30+ years is known NOT to work.
All republicans (such as James Lankford) are saying cutting taxes will lead to more investment and thus more jobs, none of which has happened historically (and to say a person getting back more money from taxes will give it too employees in raises obviously has never owned or worked for a business). In any case, even if we didn't have historical proof that the GOP are lying we still have actual business people saying they won't invest under the GOP's tax cuts ...

More than 400 millionaires and billionaires signed their name to a letter calling on Congress to abandon the GOP's proposal to cut taxes. Those Americans said that the Republican Party would be harming the country if they reduced taxes on the richest families when the nation's debt and wealth inequality was the highest in decades.

"We are high net worth individuals, many in the top 1 percent, who care deeply about our nation and its people, and we write with a simple request: Do not cut our taxes."

Wednesday’s headlines from Washington perfectly displayed the dysfunctional personalities and darkening politics that are turning America into a plutocracy ruled by sociopaths and authoritarians. Whether or not it is coincidental, orchestrated or a bit of both, the latest reality-denying fantasy-embracing outbursts and provocations from President Trump gave Senate Republicans more cover to continue ramming through a tax bill in a manner that defies any pretense of representative government.
