Kudlow: New tax cuts will 'probably come out sometime in September'

Source: The Hill

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow on Friday said that the White House hopes to introduce new middle-class tax cuts by the fall.

"It'll probably come out sometime in September," Kudlow told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo.

Kudlow added that the September goal was set by President Trump in a recent Oval Office meeting, ahead of November's presidential election.

In addition to the new 10 percent tax cuts for the middle class, Kudlow said that Trump wants to strengthen and solidify "some of the other tax cuts."

2. Yeah, sorry, voters didn't fall for it last time, and certainly won't this time.

We're still angry about the previous Trump/GOP tax hike.

12. The 2017 tax hike is a resounding success

for the bilionaire class.

Not so much for the other 99.9% of us.

7. Followed closely by cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, infrastructure spending, etc. etc.

And our social safety net is NOT A FUCKING ENTITLEMENT, I've been paying into social security for over 40 years. Now that I'm at a point where I need to take advantage of it (thanks to a greedy corporation cutting jobs) this bastard who's occupying the White House is attempting to wreck that for me as well.

9. That's one way to fix the deficit.

Not.

It'll be a better way to sabotage the economy for the next president and force the democrats to "raise your taxes".

18. Yep, those damned tax and spend Democrats

I shouldn't really need the thing but I'll include it just in case.

Yes, that's exactly what has been happening since Rayguns, gopers screw up the economy, Democrats fix it, people forget how fucked up the economy was and elect another goper...... repeat.

10. trump/gop attempt to bribe the middleclass and force democrats to go along with busting the budget

even more or democrats stand against the taxcuts.

What democrats SHOULD do is accept trumps taxcuts and then double down with even more "give aways" perhaps in a form of $500 of $1000 one time check to each Social Security precipitant. Bust budget even MORE,

let GOP/Trump go along or deny.


this is called strategy.

13. Bribe the middle class? By hiking our taxes?

It was only a "cut" for billionaires. For most of us who do any of these things:
Live in a state with taxes
Pay a mortgage
Have medical bills
Donate to charities

It's a tax HIKE.

15. Yeah, they made that claim the last time. We discovered quickly that it was a lie.

It was a directed tax cut, aimed only at billionaires.

16. No, "that's the plan"

Wait until a month before the election, propose "Middle Class Tax Cuts", and then campaign against Democrats who will obviously not pass the legislation as "being against YOU!!". Its so transparent, its ridiculous.

20. And the Democratic strategy in the House should be clear

Take the administration's middle class tax cut and amend it to add a roll back of the tax cuts on the wealthy. Then pass it over the no votes of Republicans and send it to Senate where McConnell will let it die even though it contains a tax cut for the middle class.

The difference between now and 2017 is that in 2017 we didn't have a majority in the House so we couldn't do much to stop the Trump tax giveaway. Now we can say we're offering a tax cut to the middle class and also trying to prevent even greater deficits by rolling back the cuts for the wealthy.

21. New unsustainable deficits coming this fall

More deficits which, of course, counters Trumpís claim of a great economy, coming to damage the economy when it enters recession.

Republicans are a cancer.
