They are united in their opposition to the amount of the cut going to top incomes, so they need to focus on that. Some suggestions:

 

Increase the Std Deduction, restore the 39.6% bracket for incomes  $250,000 to $1M and add a new 45% bracket for incomes over $1,000,000.

 

A pledge to increase the SS Cap to $250,000 and index it to cover a minimum of 90% of income with no increase in retirement age would be good as well.

 

Perhaps make State lottery winnings tax free for the first year so you only pay on what you haven't spent or invested IN THE USA.

 

By Nov, workers are going to notice they really didn't get an increase in their real income because NRAGOP-induced inflation will have eaten away their paultry $860 cut, and they won't be getting any pay hikes from the Corporate Taxscam.

The bigger and more relevant question for 2020 should be will Trump even matter by then?

Dems divided over vow to repeal tax law

Message 3 of 3

Republicans spent much of the last decade firing up their base with a vow to repeal President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. But when it came to doing the deed, they found promises much easier than execution.

 

Democrats may be starting down the same path on taxes.

 

From New Mexico to New York, high-profile liberals are calling for the repeal of the Republican tax plan that President Donald Trump signed into law just two months ago. They're betting big that the message will resonate with voters in the midterm elections in November and provide the sort of clear, populist economic message some Democrats worry has been missing. But others, including red-state Democrats, are clearly queasy about the strategy, mindful that repealing a government benefit once it takes hold is far easier said than done — and not always popular.

 

When pressed, some leading Democrats conceded that they'd repeal only certain portions of the tax law despite the implication that they'd go further.

What will the 2018 and 2020 platform look like for the dems?  Will they move past "Hate Trump"?

 

FUNNY!
