First, Give Tax Cuts. Then, Build.

Dec 6, 2021

In the last presidential election, Democrats howled about the injustice of Trump’s 1.7-trillion-dollar tax cut for the rich. How obscene it was!

But what is the second-biggest item in Biden’s next Build Back Better bill? Tax cuts for the rich!

The wealthy class will be given a tax break on their SALT taxes, which stands for, state and local taxes. All told, they will be able to write off an extra 285 billion dollars over the next five years. No other expense category in the bill is bigger, except for the universal childcare program.

It’s not only the Republican party which caters first and foremost to their wealthy donors!
