So much for trickle down… maybe Trump was talking about Russian hookers? I wonder if anyone’s done the math for the splash zone in that Moscow hotel.

Oh no! We couldn’t possibly have seen this coming for the… what? Like, 20th time? Since supply-side economics became the working theory of the white house in the late 1970s.

Is this actually surprising to anyone?? Corporate tax cuts never benefit working people. Never. And the thought that Republicans give a single solitary fuck about working people is laughable. Sadly, the MAGA folks will either not see or will not believe this news at all. They have been so brainwashed by the “fake news” meme, actual facts no longer matter.

Well, you could put strings on the cuts, making things contingent on hiring numbers or investment in the US or whatever. But it would take clever and good-faith legislative work on the tax bill, and then continued oversight with actual teeth afterwards. So, not going to happen with the GOP in charge.
