It isn't a tax cut if we have to pay off a trillion dollar deficit.

Anyone stupid enough to believe they are getting a few hundred dollars
when their liability goes up a few thousand
deserves to get shafted so billionaires can steal a TRILLION dollars.

There is a lot of talk about who would save money under the proposed Republican tax plan, MSNBC's Ali Velshi breaks it down.

1. Easy, peasy.

Once the tax give away passes, the Repugnants "suddenly" realize that the deficit is exploding. Of course, the "only" remedy will be to cut spending. Also of course, the spending to be cut will be to "entitlements," i.e. Medicare and Medicaid.

Two for the price of one: Tax breaks for the donors and throw granny out of the nursing home.

What's not to love?

Do I really have to attach ?

2. Ali is great at explaining finance and the economy.

Even I can understand it. This plan is so sick and twisted. DO something...Even a call Congress (202)224-3121. I takes 3 min and you feel good afterwards too!

3. Tax cuts are nothing but deferred taxes, burdening of future generations

And the Republicans have already burdened us with $20T of it.

I don't need $900 if it means adding another $20T to the deficit. Fuck you KGOP!

4. Who collects interest on the deficit, the people robbing the US Treasury to create the deficit.

What a sweet arrangement, steal the money from the people and turn them into debt salves at the same time.
