Trump, at New York City’s exclusive 21 Club tells diners: “We’ll get your taxes down, don’t worry about it.” There is really nothing new here. He campaigned on this. My question is, how is the going to pay for tax cuts for everyone, and still boost military and infrastructure spending? His tax cuts for the rich are enormous.
I predicted this when Trump first ran for office. He is in this for himself and the very wealthy. Do we really believe that a man who has spent 70 years looking out for number one, conning everyone he got his hands on, is all of a sudden interested in rural Americans and their plight?
Who are we kidding?
The Trump tax cuts for the rich will make the Bush tax cuts look puny in comparison. And let’s remember this: Clinton built up a surplus over his eight years, which Bush couldn’t wait to spend. And he did, and after eight years the economy nearly collapsed. It took Obama eight years to get us out of that mess. In the process, he ended up doubling our debt. And the Republicans blame Obama for that debt.
During the campaign, Trump said this:
We’re gonna be lowering your taxes very substantially. We’re gonna be simplifying the whole deal. You won’t H&R Block anymore, believe me. You’re not gonna need ’em. Middle income people, the taxes are coming way down, they’re coming way down. And many people that are not earning enough money, but they’re out there really trying, they have no tax to pay, and it’s gonna be a very, very simplified procedure.
Let’s record what the national debt is today on November 16, 2017:
Let’s watch what Trump will do with this number as he lines his own pockets and those of his cronies. I’ll keep pulling this out from time to time for a tally.
