On Twitter today, liberal propagandist Sally Kohn of CNN wrote in a meme that President Trump‘s proposed tax reform, one of the largest tax cuts in history, is “taking money from the people” and giving it to businesses favored by the Federal government.
Let’s indulge in some basic civics and math, shall we?
Though involuntary taxation, the Federal government collects money earned by private citizens and businesses. In the past, the govt has often collected 35% or more of individuals’ earnings.
Trump’s tax reform plan pledges to knock many such %’s collected down to 15%, or even 0.
That means that Americans will be keeping more of their earnings and sending less to the government. Some, such as earners under 25K per year, will be asked to pay no taxes at all.
If anyone can figure out how this amounts to the government taking money away...from anyone…there might be a job for you at CNN.
