I keep hearing the term tax reform being bounced around, by people who have a reputation of applying innocuous names to the most horrid and despicable things. Usually it’s the Republicans that do this, but the top Democrat (cough cough)Obama is also guilty of double speak e.g.
the National Defense authorization act, (NDAA)an act that authorizes indefinite detention for suspected terrorist, or anyone else for that matter. I wonder why a black man would sign such a dangerous bill. Another such horrendous bill is the Patriot Act, that was passed by both parties. Both bills were an assault on democracy, both Republicans and Democrats are responsible. the people are aware of the duplicity and that’s why we have Donald Trump as President. The ground work for a dictatorship has already been laid.
On top of the steady chipping away of our rights, they (meaning the GOP and the DEMs)are figuring out ways to make us a third world country. This so called tax reform bill that Paul Ryan keeps pushing, is nothing more than a redistribution of wealth upward to the one percent. The richest people on the planet, are whining about tax breaks and their Washington lackeys, are more than willing to smile in our faces on television and tell us bald faced lies, about how much good this tax reform bill will do.
Trumps speech on tax reform yesterday, was his usual gibberish with no real details. He’s a smooth operator. Giving tax breaks to corporations and repealing the estate tax, will not help anyone except the super wealthy; while cutting programs like medicaid, medicare, social security and food stamps, will adversely affect the poor, middle income people and the elderly. I’ll let Bernie Sanders explain, he does it a lot better.
Do you see the problem that I have, with calling a junkyard dog, a champion show dog. The budget and the alleged tax reforms go hand in hand, steal from the poor and middle class and give to the rich. We as a nation should be disturbed by this trend forget about wedge issues and ignore the smoke and mirrors and pay attention to the slight of hand going on here. Our tax money supports the government and thats a fact this present republican administration are more or less stealing from all of us to give tax breaks to their class. the wealthy class. vote for your own best interest.
