It’s Tax Cuts Time Again!

Trump has been on a losing streak now for 9 months….he tells us all about his accomplishments in the last 9 months….oh good.,…what are they?

NO fucked up health care.  Close enough to a shooting war with N. Korea.  Pissed off most of our allies (which we will need when he succeeds in a shooting war).  Our State Department is run like Sesame Street.  He has fucked the environment for a generation.

And now after 30 years Trump gets to screw the Middle Class with this lame trickle down bullshit that has not worked since forever.

Ever noticed when you are gonna get screwed it is always to help the Middle Class?

Well sports fans as usual a good screwing is coming…..even The American Conservative sees it…why cannot you?

Can we define the middle class in practical terms? To be sure, there are probably as many sociological definitions of the middle class as there are commentators seeking definitions. So let’s set aside the socio-swamp of beliefs, values, and taxonomies of class in favor of a definition with measurable thresholds.

Many commentators attempt to define the middle class by income, and people tend to self-report that they belong to the middle class based on income. The self-evident way to define the middle class by income is to set aside the top 10 percent (households earning $145,000 or more) and those defined as poor by the U.S. Census Bureau (households making less than $25,000), roughly 25 percent of all households.

Nothing your president and Congress is about to do will do anything to change this downward slide.

But that’s okay….he, Trump, will finally have a win that he can thump his chest about and you can continue your drive to the poor house.

Ain’t American politics grand?

  1. This ‘trickle down’ theory is much lauded by the Conservatives here. Tax cuts for companies and the rich provide employment and better wages for the workers. Never going to happen, and never has. Just look at Victorian England, or America in the late 1920s.
    It’s just an excuse to continue to exploit the workers, and give more money to your rich friends.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      1. This new film is on my radar, probably for a DVD purchase early next year. I know his work here very well, as ‘In The Thick Of It’ is one of my favourite TV comedies ever. I also enjoyed the film ‘In The Loop’, but have never seen ‘Veep’. Iannucci has great wit, and is an intelligent political commentator too.
        Regards, Pete.
