Trump Plans To Sell Tax Cuts For The Rich To His Populst Base

Trump will give a speech today that he will sell to his base the same way Republicans have sold their tax cuts for the rich to their uniformed base.  Its the same old version of trickle down economics.  Cutting taxes for corporations will encourage them to hire more workers in the US.  We can also cut the tax rate without increasing the budget deficit because the tax base will expand in response to the tax cuts.  The plan will throw a few crumbs to the middle class so that Trump can argue that everyone benefits from the plan.  His base will welcome the crumbs because they have no idea about the distribution of the tax cuts.  Trump the huckster can do this with the conviction of a snake oil peddler.  His base has believed in this magic since Reagan.
