If you really want to understand how it is that Republicans have been winning elections by getting people to vote against their own best interests, then you MUST read this article. Republicans have been running a con game against the American people for the last four decades and this article explains how they are doing it. We, the vast majority of the American people can not take our country back from the Party of Greed, until we understand what we are up against.

A short excerpt:

“The Republican Party has been running a long con on the American people, and Trump’s new tax cut proposals are just the latest iteration on it. This con involves getting Democrats to shoot Santa Claus (Clinton cutting welfare/Obama proposing the chained CPI cut to Social Security) and using tax policy to put a jolly old Saint Nick outfit on the Republicans

As Bruce Bartlett – one of the architects and major salespeople for Reagan’s tax cuts in the ‘80s – wrote in USA Today this week: “Virtually everything Republicans say about taxes today is a lie. Tax cuts and tax rate reductions will not pay for themselves; they never have. Republicans don’t even believe they will, they are just excuses to slash spending for the poor when revenues collapse and deficits rise. There is no evidence that tax reform raises growth, although it may improve fairness and tax administration.” 

So how do Republicans get away with this lie, and why does the press let them get away with it? It’s a fascinating story…………….
