The independent, non-partisan Congressional Research Service just released a report showing that the 2017 tax cuts for the richest Americans and corporations did not work. This confirms what anybody who has been looking at the data already knew. Investment did not boom and workers will not see the promised bump in pay . Instead, the federal government incurred massive deficits while wealth inequality increased to its highest level in three decades.

Even Trump admits that corporations used these tax cuts for stock buybacks ...

But Fox seems to be doing a pretty good job of spreading its propaganda. While I was in the store buying groceries, there was a pretty heightened attitude about how things were going on. One lady mentioned that Nancy Pelosi was trying to sabotage the bailout. Another guy said, she was trying to protect the consumers and that Trump was just interested in protecting himself and his rich friends. Naturally I added that Trup was interested in allowing companies to buy back stock and pay their executives lush bonuses.

Anyway, it was a regular row, and I liked it. Rich folks don't need no stinkin' tax cuts or buy backs.
