David Brooks on Taxes

Wowza does David Brooks – socialist writer for The New York Times – nail *it* with this write-up from Tuesday.

He gets it: The GOP proposal was brilliantly designed by lifelong CA/NY Democrats – Trump, Cohn, Mnuchin – to box in the Democrat Party in order to pay for corporate tax cuts & reform. It is that simple. Of course Brooks works for The NYT, so in order to retain his socialist stripes he cloaks this brilliant business-friendly plan as a socially-driven endeavor.

But he knows better. This is the most business-friendly administration to ever step foot in the Oval Office, and this plan is designed to make the US the single greatest global destination for corporate investment.

It is just really, really too bad that President Trump is letting his Twitter-led craziness getting in the way of this plan accruing to his benefit. I have learned to never, ever bet against Trump (due in large part to having sat under Maine Governor Paul LePage for 8 years); so perhaps it is accruing at the ground level with the American electorate. It is just tough to see that happening with an election result like Virginia on Tuesday.
