The sales job to peddle the GOP tax plan as a good thing for the average Joe and Jane has already started.
The simple truth: There is enough window dressing in the bill to distract us from the fact that it is a permanent tax cut for the wealthiest and corporations, and at best a short-term benefit for most American taxpayers. Economists largely agree that the impact of this “reform” will increase the deficit to a staggering extent that could lead to another financial disaster for the American economy.
After all their complaining about budget deficits, the GOP plays a dangerous game not to be confused with governing. We can consider this deficit as a loan to be repaid by our children and grandchildren, stealing the last vestiges of the American dream.
Don’t be fooled. This is another #goptaxscam.
