Trickledown... Not any more...

Why is it when we give huge tax breaks to the top 1% and Fortune 500 companies its ... "good for the country"... but when you want to end those tax breaks.... "its socialism" ??

As I have stated here many times... The "old GOP" is so out of touch with the 21st century. We need a GOP that looks at the country and world with 21st century eyes and not the old eyes of 30-40 years ago like we do now.

Trickledown worked 28 years ago when Reagan was elected because businesses could not pack up, move over seas, still get huge tax breaks and bring their products back into the US without tariffs.

Over the past 8 years the Republicans have allowed huge tax breaks and written laws that benefit only the top 1% in this country. Again with the notion that the wealthy will spend money and it will filter down to the middle class.

Now when the Democrats want to let those tax breaks expire, they are called socialist or communists and that they want to “spread the wealth around”.

Just one of many examples of why the GOP needs to change.
