Letter to the editor: Trump’s tax cut

| Tuesday, December 11, 2018 10:03 a.m

Why doesn’t President Trump take credit for losses in the stock market? He took credit for the stock market when people were making money. He took all the credit for a robust economy that he inherited.

All those tax breaks for the rich will eventually be paid for by the working people. This “pay me later” attitude is being eaten up by inflation.

Congress will never pass a flat tax. Republicans say Democrats will raise your taxes. But Republicans are the heroes because they add it to the national debt.

Think of the stock market as a full glass of water. When the water is removed, or lowered, somebody makes a lot of money. It’s called shorting a stock. The big investors who hold vast amounts of money, investments and pensions make most of the money. Companies use that money for their own agendas. And the profits go to them, not the investors. Greed is only good for the investment companies who invest other people’s money and pensions. Scraps are thrown to the little guys.

It’s the American way: “Screw you, stupid, because you don’t see it.” Trump learned that lesson long ago. Whom does his tax cut benefit?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
