Tax cuts are looking more and more like President Trump’s first major legislative win. The pieces are all in place, fake “polls” (which give voters 3 or more options to slant all results toward 33%) have been ignored, and Congress is almost ready to vote.
All that remains is telling American tax-payers all about their Christmas present!
Trump hailed the cuts in a speech from the White House today, declaring that the United States could be on the verge of an economic “miracle.”

In his speech in the White House, the president introduced four middle-income families who thanked the president and described how they would use the savings from their tax cuts as Trump compared the overhaul as akin to reform carried out during the Kennedy administration.
“We are going to make our economy work for you again,” Trump said of the cuts. “And we are going to make the American dream . . . be the dream that you want for your children and your grandchildren once again.”
“Fifty-five years ago this week, President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat, launched a historic effort to pass sweeping top-to-bottom tax cuts,” Trump said. “A half century later we are reminded that lowering taxes is neither a Republican or Democrat idea, but an American principal and an American idea.”
The families invited by the president to share the stage were from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and Washington — and described the home renovations they planned, and in the case of one family, how they would share the savings by helping those less fortunate in their community.
“It’s our joy to stand before you,” Emily Howard of Washington told the president. “And what this means to us as a family is we will be able to pour out into community, giving to families in need or setting them up for success in any way that whatever God has planned for our family.”
“We are blessed to have an amazing president and what a good steward he is of our country,” she added.
Leon Benjamin, an African-American pastor of a church in Richmond, Va., told the president his family was representative of many in his community.
“We need this now,” he said of the tax reform.
