Republicans aren’t even lying to Americans anymore. They’re just coming right out and saying that they’re trying to cheat the middle & poor classes. In the latest edition of rob from the poor and give to the rich, the GOP is cramming its tax bill down America’s throat.
McConnell just changed his tune about the tax bill, saying:
“I misspoke on that. You can’t guarantee that absolutely no one sees a tax increase.”
Trump’s own alma mater, The Wharton School, conducted a study on the measure and concluded that it benefits the wealthiest Americans the most.
The Wharton study also found that the administration’s claim that the average American family would receive a four thousand dollar raise under their tax plan is false, echoing a number of academic studies that conclude cutting taxes for corporations does not raise wages for workers.
Gary Cohn used the same “trickle down” logic in a recent interview in which he admitted the small population of American CEOs is the most excited about the measure. He too assumed that cutting taxes for corporations leads to higher wages for workers.
McConnell also added this bit of nonsense:
“What we are doing is targeting levels of income and looking at the average in those levels and the average will be tax relief for the average taxpayer in each of those segments.”
Please elaborate on those “averages,” Mitch.
