Champagne? More likely to be fracking fluid…
It’s champagne because the rich get to drink the costly drink from the new tax cuts. What trickle down the rest of us get, is if the rich allow a few drops to hit the floor.
The GOP wants to “help” working people with trickle down economics. They can’t help them directly, even with tax cuts focused ONLY on the middle class, because helping Joe Everyday directly would be SOCIALISM. We can’t possibly have any of that even if the policies they are pursuing have been proven not to work.
Let us vote to give rich people all of our tax dollars!
It’s actually kind of funny, reading the claims of how this is all “balanced” and “gives EVERYONE” a break.
So, the rule is that they have to make this revenue neutral. And corporations get a cut from what they were paying (in theory) of over a third.
Therefore, somebody has to make up the difference. That’s third grade math.
And the rich are getting a BIG cut for their pass through companies. That’s different from corporate.
Hmmmmm. Gee whiz and golly me, who does that leave to make up the difference?
If you just can’t figure that out, ask a third grader.
First panel Trump with hair down looks like Bannon offering cotton candy.
There should be no tax cuts to anybody at least until our budget is balanced. Who’s doing the thinking around here ?
There is no free lunch.
The Republicans always offer the illusion of “tax cuts,” but after years of them cutting taxes, the benefits have been zero. Every cent cut in taxes translates to paying extra dollars for goods and services. The burden will shift to those who can least afford it.
The tax cuts which will benefit the rich, will require spending cuts that will hurt the poor. They will increase tax revenue through other streams, which will affect the middle class.
Trickle-down tax cuts have never benefited working families. Trickle-down tax cuts don’t create jobs. They will come at the expense of middle-class families’ economic security, education, scientific research and infrastructure. The American people do not support tax cuts for millionaires at the expense of working families, so the Republicans pretend that tax cuts will “trickle down” to working families in he form of strong economic growth. Recent history and an abundance of economic research shows that trickle-down tax cuts don’t create growth or jobs, they create a wider gap of inequality between the top 1% and everyone else.
The biggest economic threat is the national debt. This tax cut for the 1% will make the debt much bigger. This is no longer a democracy Or a republic, it is an oligarchy. and several other type garchies. It is no longer constitutional. The 1% hate the constitution. The ONLY thing t rump has done are Executive orders. E.O.s take precedence over the constitution and Every One of his E.O.s are UnConstitutional.
Coolidge lowered tax rates and reduced the size of government…and nearly retired the National Debt.Hoover hiked taxes and tariffs…and exploded the debt, then FDR’s New Deal extended the Depression for five years or more.Kennedy cut tax rates, and the economy came back from recession. LBJ implemented the Great Society, which destroyed Black families, increased poverty, and increased the debt.Reagan cut tax rates, and poverty and unemployment went down, while revenues doubled. The debt was not paid down, because Dems refused to cut spending.
We lived through eight years of malaise, with a doubled debt, 1% or less GDP (which didn’t keep pace with population growth), exploding violence, and our country’s lessened international standing.
Now, Trump is calling for decreased tax rates and simplified laws and regulations, and he’s accused of being a drug (candy and champagne) dealer. Does Kallaugher know that The Donald doesn’t even drink? Try reality, Mr. K. This fantasy comic ain’t cutting it.
What so many willfully ignorant and politically blinded right wingers who have been brainwashed to hate the word “TAX” don’t realize is those same phonies pushing tax cuts, first and foremost, are opening the doors for more FEES to cover the lost revenue. If you’re one of the working stiffs, the money is still coming out of your pocket, one way or the other. The big difference is with lower taxes comes fewer benefits for the working class. The ONLY big winners are the uber wealthy who manipulate the clueless to blame the poor, or the undocumented, or the aged, or the minorities, or the handicapped for their financial hardships in life. And they keep voting for these self-serving phonies…
