You might like candidates who promise one thing, and do something different after they've suckered you into helping them win. I don't.
"Suckered?" Well the guy you say "promised" to do what he's doing isn't exactly doing what he promised. I remember watching many of you Trump
supporters cheering him on when he "promised" he would build a wall and "MEXICO" was going to pay for it! How exactly did that turn out? Now
taxpayer's are expected to pay for it?? So really he's not much different than many current politicians who say things that they can't fulfill.
He also said he was going to help raise the wages of America's "forgotten man and woman."
Real wages have remained mostly stagnant despite an expanding economy, record stock prices, soaring corporate profits and a giant deficit-fueled
stimulus from Trump's tax cuts that took effect Jan. 1. The Trump administration claimed its policies would immediately boost wages, with its tax
overhaul ultimately increasing average pay by $4,000 to $9,000.
It sure seems like his tax breaks were more focused on his own corporate interests than hard working Americans. How did his tax-cut plan work out
for you? It sure wasn't what he touted on the campaign trail. It sure seems like corporations made-out much better at a 13% tax cut compared to the
majority of hard working Americans who received a paltry 2-3% tax cut. Exemptions were reduced and many Americans are paying more on federal taxes
Trump's Tax Plan and How it Affects You
There's much more, but I'll spare you the details, you can read it for yourself in Politifact...
Tracking Trump's Campaign Promises
Instead of spending billions of dollars building a wall, I can think of a lot more domestic issues that would have a much bigger impact on Americans
pocket than a wall. A revised healthcare plan that would cover all American citizens. We're behind many industrial nations who have compassion for
their citizens who provide them with affordable healthcare and much lower prices on prescriptions.
How about across the board 15% tax rate? Eliminate the complexity and expense of our unfair tax system. How about legislation that protects consumer
privacy? Our government is allowing corporations to take advantage of consumer privacy on the internet and soliciting them in the privacy of their
How about spending that money on cleaner and reusable energy technology? We've been in the pocket of big oil far too long.
If we took a quarter of what we spend on the military complex, we could address many of these issues and more. Yet many feel a war machine that can
wipe out all of humanity is worth the trillions of dollars our government spends on it. Talk about being suckered, Americans continue to defend
millionaire politicians and their political party as if they truly can relate to the majority of American citizens. (Did you really believe Trump
when he said "he could relate to the federal workers not getting a paycheck" during his government shut-down?) LOL, give me a break.
