    Here is further evidence that "the short run" is not nearly as important as "the long run":

    In the short run, the tax law coupled with federal spending acted as a stimulus, a "sugar rush," but there are indicators the economy may slow this year.

    As a result of the Republicans' so-called "tax reform," children of fallen service members are forced to pay thousands of extra dollars in taxes on their survivor benefits – but, hey, at least banks, big corporations and the wealthiest 1% of Americans got a huge tax cut. Republicans don't care about anyone else.

    Emperor Trump promised his tax cuts would lead to higher wages. They didn't. Emperor Trump promised his tax cuts would lead to a surge in investment. They didn't. Emperor Trump promised the tax cuts would beneft everyone, not just the wealthiest Americans. They didn't. Emperor Trump promised the tax cuts would "pay for themselves." They didn't. Emperor Trump was lying. Is anyone surprised?

    A devastating analysis of the tax cuts shows it did virtually no economic good

    Higher wages! A surge in investment! Everyone, not just the wealthy, will benefit! Trump made several grandiose promises about his tax cuts. The promises may have sounded good in Trumpworld but in the real world they meant nothing.

    More people owed the IRS money after Trump's sweeping tax reform

    Emperor Trump gave huge tax cuts to banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans (including himself). Now he wants to bypass Congress and give another big tax break to the wealthiest Americans. A University of Pennsylvania model estimates that the wealthiest 1% would receive 86% of the benefits. Does anyone still believe Emperor Trump cares about America's middle class? He doesn't. He never has.

    Emperor Trump and the Republicans – who care about banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans and not about the middle class – are demanding that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin give the wealthiest Americans another tax cut via executive fiat. To do so would, of course, bypass Congress. The Trump administration hates working with Congress. That would mean adhering to the rules laid out in the Constitution of the United States of America. Emperor Trump is above the law.

    Incredibly, GOP Senators seek another tax cut for the rich

    Emperor Trump's huge tax cuts for banks, big corporations and the wealthiest Americans included a reduction in the corporate rate, from 35% to 21%. Trump said the tax cuts would be like "rocket fuel" to boost the economy and increase capital spending. That didn't happen. Many companies spent their tax savings on stock buybacks. In the last quarter, business investment fell for the first time in three years. But hey, at least America's millionaires and billionaires are happy!

    "Our framework ensures that the benefits of tax reform go to the middle class, not to the highest earners," said Donald Trump on October 11, 2017. Nobody believed him then and nobody believes him now. As this Yahoo News story notes, "After refunds, the IRS collected about $93 billion more from individual American taxpayers in 2018 than it did in 2017. Interestingly, that number stands close to the tax break amount that corporations received from the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act in 2018. Last year, big businesses paid $91 billion less in taxes than they had in 2017, prior to the new law’s passage."
