I am not quite sure how this happened but the much hated tax cuts (which are NOT tax cuts) for the rich have suddenly become a non factor.
Somehow the White House came up with the Pie Chart below and the bullet points below it. Amazingly the chart shows that the cuts to the rich that EVERYBODY said was giving away the store turns out to be a non issue. It amounts to only 13.2 percent of the whole package. Wow! Somehow the large percentage would go to the middle class. How could that be? Maybe because there are just more there. Take a look at how the White House decided to sway the vote.
Let’s cover the bullet points now.
1. Save or grow jobs. Guess what you can not measure SAVED jobs. Don’t be fooled by this out-and-out lie. You CAN NOT MEASURE SAVED JOBS!
I don’t think I need to say anything else here. 22 million jobs? With no real cuts in taxes. I will put money on that number not happening. Which brings me to the next point.
2.More than 155 million workers will receive a tax cut. Folks THIS IS NOT A TAX CUT! It is an extension of the status quo. You are not getting any more money from this. Maybe 15 percent will if they do way with the Average Minimum Tax.
3. Over 7 million can rely on unemployment while they look for work. When was the last time you looked at the want ads. Go to Monster there are jobs out there but people will not take them as long as they cn make more on unemployment.
4. Millions of Americans will be kept from going below the poverty level. A strong manufacturing base would prevent that too. But the EPA, OSHA and other federal agencies are blocking that growth with a green agenda driven by the environmental lunatics in charge of those agencies.
5. Maybe if the Government got out of the higher education business the cost of an education might stabilize. In the meantime federal money flows to the colleges and they spend like drunken sailors then raise the tuition accordingly.
