How prescient of Donald Trump to again use the expertise of Larry Kudlow at a time where both he and the country could use a shot in the arm of economic adrenaline to keep the economy rolling. This is the divide that will either bring the U.S. into a greater place of prosperity or it will roll back the seasons to socialism that will befall a people who probably deserve it.
What kind of hard working fool would want an AOC-style Marxian tax increase? Like the rest, the middle-class in America busts their humps to provide a quality of life to their family that is better than that of the generation before. The red-lipped leader of “the squad” should put down the manifesto and head out of the gutter of New York to where Americans live. Fill a town hall with middle-class men and women and ask all those who want to pay more in taxes to raise their hands.
When no hands are raised, note cards for what to do in hostile environments come out by the speaker, forcing her to tell them that her worldly knowledge knows best what to do with those extra taxes that they should pay. Look, the average middle-class American understands that they need to pay taxes for public education, infrastructure, police, etc., but have a hard time swallowing paying for college for those who shouldn’t be there, and the gift baskets given out at the border to illegal aliens as they enter, by the ACLU promising free legal advice, a California driver’s license, and most importantly the socialist notebook that says America is racist for not letting them in after swimming successfully across the Rio Grande.
The Trump administration is pondering a middle-class tax rate cut to 15% which has set economists and other experts weighing the costs and benefits of such a move as well as its political implications.
The vermin on the left will cry as this will have a deleterious effect on the class warfare that they now wage. One cannot have a revolution without destroying the middle-class. The privileged avocado toast eating lemmings wish nothing but to create a Cambodian-style “Alice in Wonderland” economy, where doctors become cafeteria workers, and the uneducated are lifted into academia.
The dumbing down of the American youth has created a void of economic reality, certainly that of Reaganomics in the ’80s. It worked by the way, so the National Education Association works day and night to try to remove such conservative success from textbooks across the land. I won’t quote the Argentine philosopher again so just google history repeating itself. By the way, this trickle-down system may cause a short-term spike in the National Debt say the left, but as history will show that the velocity of money will increase as will consumption as a result of more money in the system, which in the longer term certainly creates economic growth.
Whether this is an election play by Trump or not, it is good that the idea of tax cuts for the middle-class are brought front and center so young quislings can see who the rats who want to raise their taxes really are.
