Buried in the Fine Print, Trump Rule Would Give $2.5 Billion Tax Cut to Big Bank Fat Cats

Jake Johnson, staff writer

As Wall Street banks continue to enjoy record profits thanks to President Donald Trump's $1.5 trillion tax scam, Trump's Treasury Department—headed by former Goldman Sachs executive Steve Mnuchin—quietly moved to hand big banks yet another major gift on Wednesday by hiding a $2.5 billion tax cut in the fine print of an "

Wow. Once again, Trump betrays his base. Wonder if they’ll get it this time? Nah. Fox News (and MSM) won’t be reporting it, so how could they know? They’ll just keep supporting him as he drags the entire country into even more horrific debt, saddling everybody except the 1% with the bill.

Our local Trumpbots predictably respond that “Hillary would be worse” or “haven’t you ever done anything wrong ?” whenever they are questioned about Trump serially screwing them.

We probably will not be here long enough to pay the debt.

Again, they steal from all of us.

When will we bury them in the fine print?

WHAT? Banks are not “financial services?” so what are they—the mafia? Although when China calls in its loans, does the Treasury pay up, or do the taxpayers then lose everything and anything?
