You all just got a lot richer....

Remember then?
"The rich will not be gaining at all with this plan. We are looking for the middle class and we are looking for jobs -- jobs being the economy." ---Trump on the tax bill, Sept. 13, 2017
And later:
“This is going to cost me a fortune, this thing, believe me. This is not good for me. . . . I think my accountants are going crazy right now.”
--- Trump on tax bill, Nov. 29, 2017
And now:

"You all just got a lot richer." ---Trump talking to his Mar-a-Lago buds about the tax bill, Dec. 24, 2017


Excuses should be coming in: 3, 2, 1......
Thanks from Camelot and Clara007

Trump is thinking, "The fucking morons won't notice the difference", and he's right.

"Merry Christmas guys" trump says "i didn't get you much, just decided that you get to keep more of your stuff"

"Oh, thanks" says the individualist

"The sky is falling" says the collectivist



Nancy Pelosi calls the bill “monumental, brazen theft from the American middle class,”

You just can't see it, can you? It has much less to do with money than it has to do with Trump treating Americans like chumps. He'll tell ya anything to get your endorsement on the bottom line.

Sad.

Not sure what you are on about. I just say "show me the money". When are we supposed to start seeing the change in our withholdings?

You don't mind your president lying to you as long as you get yours.

OK. I see where you're coming from.

Not quite. I am not concerned about your characterization of Trumps policy. I love this whole tax cut deal. Its great and not only do I like that I will get a break on taxes but I really like the corporate tax cuts as well. I think it will bring some businesses and some expatriated money back home and will keep this good business climate rocking.
Thanks from Sabcat

OK, you don't mind your president lying to you. That's OK. No problem.

The President was not in complete control of the bill as it was negotiated about in the two houses. The nature of the bill changed. Trump is rich. He will do well of course. There is a segment of rich people who are not uber rich who will lose money with this tax plan. No doubt about it. It is a good bill for low income people. It is a really good bill for average earners and it is a good bill for upper middle income earners.


So in other words, no I am not concerned about your characterization of the President and this tax cut. I like it and so will millions of others when they get the adjustment. Then they will realize that the liberal press and the democrat politicians have been moaning day and night about how terrible it is and all that is going to melt away.
Thanks from Jimgorn
