Today a Robert Reich piece got my attention in my newsfeed that I figured needed some coverage especially in these times where Donald Trump is sucking up all the air with matters that do not help most people.
The biggest fear Progressives had with the passage of the tax cut scam was that Republicans were forcing the hands of every American. Tax cuts, even if unpaid, is easy to pass. Increasing taxes is difficult because Americans have been conditioned to believe that taxes are bad instead of something that secures us all.
Well the GOP got their tax cut scam signed into law. Now they must find a way to pay for it. Unless we act, you will pay for it with big cuts in your Social Security and Medicaid. And millennials, forget help for education and student loans.
