Your GOP and Your Tax Plan

As the GOP and Trump go about the business of celebrating their gift to corporate America and the nation's top 1% income earners, we should be thankful some agencies (Websites etc) keep an eye on the false promises of the tax plan.

Yes, of course, Ryan and company will throw-out a bit of "cake" for us common Americans. The GOP is offering up yet another tax plan based on Trickle-down/Supply-side economics; a proven economic failure proven via Post Clinton GOP policy.  So, all said the GOP is offering a modern-day example of:
"Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche." (Alleged tp have been spoken by Marie Antoinettte.  Of course, she never utteted the words.)
As for the GOP tax plan, the proof is under the icing and the reality is the tax plan is a dead-on give away for the uber-wealthy (including members of the US Congress and US Senate.

The Economic Policy Institute (EPI) is one such agency. The EPI makes great (and informative) use of data from the Tax Policy Center, a project of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution.

The GOP tax plan over 10 years.

MSNBC's Joy Reid and 40 seconds on Trump's Estate Tax.
Trump's carnival barking lies are easily assimilated by Ryan and McConnell and crafted into law. Law which over the long run is as nation killing as George W. Bush's tax cuts and two wars.
