What's the primary reason leftists believe Trump's tax cuts are for the wealthy only?

  1. They don't have jobs so don't know any better.

  2. They have jobs but don't pay income taxes, so they don't see a difference.

  4. The truth is inconvenient & prefer to share lies. Possibly because they're short on material.

    Funny all their narratives and beliefs. Who knew the mega-wealthy are primarily liberals. Same with the make-up of the wealthiest zip codes. I guess Republicans have "their" best interests in mind.

    At any rate, what's the primary reason leftists believe Trump's tax cuts are for the wealthy only?

    Funny when then Hussein decided to keep the “Bush Tax Cuts” that the left screamed about for years, we didn’t hear them screaming that the Hussein was giving tax breaks to the rich.

    With the left, it’s always a double standard.

    Everyone got a tax break. The 1 percent always benefit the most as they control most all the wealth. There's just not much left for the working masses. That's why social security and Medicare are so vital for 99 percent of the population.

    Who pays the taxes? We have a progressive tax system that taxes the richest the most and very little or not at all for the poorest. Of course tax cuts benefit the wealthiest. What Democrats want is tax redistribution. The Democratic mantra "Tax cuts for the rich" is intentionally dishonest.

    The rich tax cuts are permanant, everyone else gets sunsetted. Everyone gets something now but in the long run it's a clear giveaway for the wealthy. It's bait-and-switch. Add to that what the tarriffs will end up costing consumers as well as dozens of other ways all this chaos can cost us real money and Trump has not given the working class anything.

    They're intellectually dishonest AND only parrot what they're told.

    Study Finds Trump Tax Cuts Failed to Do Anything But Give Rich People Money

    The biggest effect of the Trump tax cuts is obvious: People who own businesses and other sources of concentrated wealth will have a lot more money, and the federal budget will have less. But the advocates of the tax cuts insisted it wasn’t about letting the makers keep their hard-earned money rather than handing it over to the takers. It was about incentivizing business to repatriate funds and ramp up its investments, thereby increasing growth and wages.

    Actually, Trump's tax package gave short term tax cuts to most, but only the wealthy got PERMANENT tax cuts. That's what has so many taxpayers with a fucking brain to see the inequality objectively pissed. Being a TRUE Conservative, I can understand the angst and fury of the lower 95% of taxpayers!
