There are lots of things to think about.

Do We Need A Tax Cut?

Leave a comment

I admit.  I am puzzled.  Why are we getting a tax cut at a time when corporations have a lot of cash?  Okay, I said “we” but it is the corporations who are getting the tax cut.

But why?

Doesn’t the country need the money?

Where is the expected infrastructure improvement?  Better roads, needed bridge repair, tunnels, airports, public transportation?

We have seen one disaster after another in the country this year.  Flooding, fires, Puerto Rico has been devastated.  How do we improve the electric grid, how do we reestablish wetlands, how do we rebuild the devastated areas of the country and its territories without extra money?

Climate change?  I know that the President and the Republican party have denied it.  But that denial does not make it less real.  Where will the money come from to pay for the damage caused by climate change?  How do we deal with a world where revolution, poverty, and refugees are all increased because of drought, flooding, and fire?

In order to pay for the tax cuts, our country will allow the deficit to swell, and services to be cut.  Health care, job training, immigration services:  are all of these to be cut?  Will we stand for this?

Really?  Do we need a tax cut?
