The GOP tax plan; Screwing Over the Working Class Once Again
The GOP tax plan, scheduled for a vote as early as this evening, will screw over the working class despite claims to the otherwise. Donald Trump and the rest of the GOP are hiding the fact that most of the benefits of the GOP tax plan will benefit the 1%, as usual. Why should we be surprised, especially at this point in our history?
A study by the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) a governmental agency assigned to the task of analyzing tax bills and other legislation affecting taxes, revealed that 38% of American workers will not even get a tax break on the GOP tax plan. The Republican Party has worked overtime trying to use every accounting gimmick they can think of to deceive the American people into thinking that their tax plan will benefit the working class the most. In reality, the working class will get screwed over, as they usually do in these cases. This is sure especially given that the Republican Party has always been best friends to the wealthy while being enemies of the working class.
This really shows what a liar Donald Trump is when he claims that the GOP tax plan “will cost me a fortune”, especially since the majority of wealthy people won’t see a tax increase or may even benefit financially from the GOP tax plan. Any way you look at it, the GOP tax is a bad deal for working-class Americans.
If the GOP tax plan should pass through the Senate and House, the next step will probably be for the GOP to propose “entitlement reform” to make up for the huge deficit created by the GOP tax plan. This means that they will probably be going after Social Security, Medicare, SNAP, and other welfare programs as a way to balance a budget.
Working-class and poor Americans had better wake the hell up while we still have something left. If the GOP tax plan passes successfully, it will just be the start of a landslide that could bury all of us. As a socialist, I’m extremely angry that the working class seems to be asleep at the wheel once again. This thing must be stopped!
