The Tax Plan

The President’s agenda is to make himself and the top 1% of the richest people in the United States even richer, at the expense of the middle and lower class.  That 1% have 42% of all the wealth in the country.  You have to give credit to those wealthy who stand against Trump.  At the top of that list is billionaire Tom Steyer, who is spending over twenty million dollars to try to get Donald J. Trump impeached.  He is also spending over thirty million on getting Democrats elected in 2018.  At the time of this blog post, he has collected over four million signatures to that end.  I was an early signer, and if you just Google his name and I am sure you can find it.  It should be noted that on November 12, 2017, over 400 millionaires and billionaires signed a letter telling Congress, “Don’t cut our taxes.”  Most of them are not household names, just good people who put the needs of others first.  One you might recognize is Ben & Jerry (the ice cream guys).

On December 22nd, 2017 President trump signed his first major legislative accomplishment, which he calls the biggest tax cut in history (it is not), to no hoopla.  This is the man who takes credit for there being to deaths in American commercial airlines for the year.  This is a person we know loves seeing his name in the news.  I don’t get it.  When I have a theory, I will share it with you.

The gap between the haves and have-nots has grown drastically.  Check out the chart below:

Published on December 2017 on the Washington Center for Equitable Growth website,

This tax plan was done just to keep that orange line headed up, forcing the other 99% into a smaller and smaller portion of this nation’s income and wealth. In 2017 the portion of U.S. workers living paycheck to paycheck is 78%.  Trump’s core voters are middle-aged and elderly white people without a college degree,   A lot Trumpers fall into that  Trump promised his core that he would be the President to protect the little guy.  At some point, all of these middle-class white people are going to realize they were sold a bill of goods.  Simply put Donald J. Trump looks at all of the people as either winners or losers.  If you are part of that 1%, you are a winner.  If not, you are a loser.  The only people he will look after is the winners and himself.
