Every time we have a cut in taxes we are told that they will pay for themselves and that all the benefits for the wealthy will trickle down to the rest of us peasants….both are lies that the people believe every time and every time we , the average person, gets the shaft.
That said what about the tax cuts of two years ago the Speaker Ryan helped pass and screw us people….
After two years, President Trump’s tax cuts are not on track to pay for themselves, the latest Treasury data released Friday suggest.
Total federal government revenues ended up lower in 2019 than was projected before the passage of the GOP tax overhaul in 2017.
Then, in 2017, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected that fiscal 2019 revenues, without the tax cuts, would be $3.69 trillion. Instead, revenues with the tax cuts were only $3.46 trillion.
To be certain, the difference, $225 billion, cannot be attributed solely to the tax cuts. Other economic factors have influenced economic growth over the past two years. For example, the tariffs put in place as part of Trump’s trade wars likely counteracted the stimulative effect of the tax cuts.
THat was a con job…..but what about all the bravado that Trump thumps his chest about….like” this is the best economy in our history”
More con….more lies…..look at the stats for yourself…..
It’s true the economy has been doing well – but there have been periods when it was even stronger.
The truth is that the economy is the best in decades but only if you are already wealthy and are getting wealthier…..the rest of us continue to struggle….day to day……
