Buy Now, Pay Later! Tax Scam & Election Timing

148 Views
Message 1 of 1

It's pretty obvious that the Trump/GOP tax scam is partisan; designed purposely to hurt Blue States and certain other Democratic constituencies such as the Millennials.

 

However it's also designed to support a deeply unpopular president and GOP Congress during the 2018 & 2020 elections. 

 

That's because any tax cuts initially enjoyed by the voting middle-class are temporary.  Once the cuts disappear, working and middle-class Americans will be worse off than they are now from both tax and, especially, safety-net viewpoints.  (The latter as Rubio & others have promised.)    

 As per WAPO's article on the topic:  "Republicans are calculating they can turn stronger economic growth into victories at the polls, even if it means more debt and greater inequality later on."
