A NY Democrat? Donald Trump wants to raise taxes on the rich

Did the American people elect a New York Democrat? That’s what it looks like more and more.

President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that rich Americans may pay more in taxes as the administration seeks to reform the tax code. After meeting with top Democrats, the president said that high-income citizens may be taxed at a higher rate, though he stopped short at highlighting what the tax rate may be.

He said during a meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers:

“[The wealthy] will not be gaining at all with this plan. … If they have to go higher, they’ll go higher, frankly.”

The White House has yet to release a detailed and comprehensive tax plan, but some Republicans say a first draft may come out at the end of September.

This is why tax reform is a scam, and that no American should ever believe that the tax code will be improved for the average American. Whether it’s a Republican or a Democrat, the tax code is never simplified or reduced – scrapped would be ideal. The tax code is only ever amplified.

Trump was a Democrat for much of his life. It’s no surprise that he is returning to his New York Democratic roots.

With his flip-flop on DACA, his base is getting impatient. Even Ann Coulter wants Trump to be impeached.
