Donald Trump recently gave an outstanding economic speech in Detroit where as one of his main points he touted the concept of reducing taxes as a way to grow the economy. Several days later, Hillary followed him to Michigan and told her supporters that reducing taxes would mean no money for infrastructure needs while the rich would benefit. She followed with a comment that the lower half of society would get no such break and, therefore, Trump's plan was to put the cost of the tax increase on the back of those who can least afford it.
There are a couple of major problems with Hillary's logic (or lack thereof) which need to be addressed. First, when taxes are reduced, it puts more disposable income in the hands of those receiving the tax break and results in more consumer spending. A rich guy might buy a new Cadillac or other high ticket item while someone of more modest means might buy that much needed new washer or dryer. And secondly, Trump was talking about a tax reduction, not a give away. The number of people who pay no taxes is approaching half of the population and is likely soon to be in the majority. In the past they have been given deductions in addition to their zero liability which means that those paying taxes are paying for those who pay none. This destroys initiative, merely adds to the numbers and amount of dollars given for doing nothing and is always a negative on society.
So when Hillary panders about the rich, remember that first, she is extremely rich herself although not through hard work but influence peddling. And second, her power comes from using people who know no better who accept her statements as fact when they are based on falsehoods. She will use anything she can to gain power, power which will be used to finish Obama's transformation of American from a land of liberty to a welfare state. Remember that when you go to the polls in November. If you vote your pocketbook and work for a living, the identification of who to vote for should be obvious and it won't be Hillary.
