I think everybody regardless of political leanings wants to pay less tax and keep more of their hard earned money.
Yeah, they generally do.
But the fact of the matter is it will do nothing to fix the wasteful spending of Government.
Add that to the fact that the cuts made to offset the loss of tax usually occur to the most vital services & programmes.
I’m being negative.
One thing at a time I guess.
Another thing to point out, because I certainly think it’s valid, is the idea that the cuts to the richest corporations will lead to job growth
Of course this is definitely a possibility...
But considering that the richest corporations weren’t short for money in the first place, I don’t see that there was any legitimate reason for
that to not have been happening anyways, regardless of tax cuts.
Basically, it’s wishful thinking, based on faith and a feeling of trust, rather than a guarantee.
Personally, I don’t really put a blind faith into the biggest corporations trickling down instead of hoarding upwards.
Because historically, that hasn’t been the case.
The ball is fully in their court now.
I’m pretty confident in saying greed will rule the day.
I hope I’m wrong!
