Temporary Tax Cuts Are Coming

Here Comes The Flim Flam Man.
Coming for your votes any way he can.
 “Massive tax cuts”. “Responsible tax cuts”. “Read my lips, no new taxes…
We’ve heard them, had them, and read them time and time again. Each time the GOP manages to elect another chief executive, the main plank of his agenda is always the promise of generous tax cuts that will save the day.
We always get the cuts and once the fat cats use their cash to buy some personal watercrafts, and some new automation for their factories, the lay-offs come down and the tax rates go back up to recoup the loss revenue. They always claim to be in favor of tax cuts and against government assistance for non tax payers, but any non-biased accountant will tell you that a tax cut is government assistance for tax payers. Any honest assessment of every tax cut that we have seen since Ronald Reagan has been at best a temporary windfall that stimulates the economy just long enough to engage in prominent double talk during the next mid-term election. Then quietly a more sobering tone sweeps their consciousness and they are forced to ease the taxes back up, under the weight of the sinking ship. We all know it, but it works every time that it is tried and then it fails every time that it works.
George W. Bush at least came up with a novel idea. His administration devised an innovative variation on the same old theme. They promised tax cuts, and delivered them in the form of a $300. instant payout to every man woman and rent paying recipient of their voter bribery scheme. There were smiles galore. An instant tax cut, that seemingly returned your own money to you with no questions asked, no Form 1040, no schedule C, and with no accounting fees required. The check simply arrived in your mailbox for you to pleasure yourself and your family, while stimulating the economy. But who knew that the windfall was deep undercover, and while wearing it’s sheep’s clothing well, it turned out to be a drooling and snarling wolf that bit you on the ass the very next year. That’s when your accountant got the news that the $300 would have to be considered as part of last year’s INCOME, and declared as such on next year’s 1040.
Sucker. It was slight of hand like all others. The truth was on the table, but by the time the Flim Flam man finished moving it around under his shells – your tax cut evaporated and you would have to wait another 4 – maybe 8 years for the game to seem new again. That’s when it will be delivered by the new GOP shyster.
The Trump 3 ring circus has thrilled and entertained us all for the past 9 months, and now its time to get down to some serious pocket picking. Let the games begin.
