Wall Street Thrives and Working People Struggle as GOP Tax Cut Turns One

Max Moran

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 — the only major piece of legislation passed by the Trump administration — turns one year old this week. The law’s advocates promised it would create an economic bonanza for working people.

Wait until February when many working people find out that automatic FICA withholding reductions initiated early in 2018 are not the same as a tax cut.

Anybody getting divorced after 12/31/18 will be hit with higher taxes on settlements and alimonies.

The cult 45 crowd will, as usual, blame it on the Clintons and Obamas.

With the stock market tanking, the tax cut sugar high is looking rather short-lived. What a shocker.

The Donald has done us all in.

Can we please begin building the Gallows now?

Dear Max Moran, working people are getting what they deserve, they ELECTED Trump, remember that, please.

HI PonyBoy, using any one of the T’s in the TRUMP name—and they are all over the world --would work just as well. I think this is as close to “Hoisted on his own petard ,” as we could get. : )

This is stupid- anyone who works is a working person- and we certainly did not vote for Dump! Guess you are a one percenter with a huge inheritance.
