Well, we finally know the details of the "Plan."
He will cut taxes, if Congress cuts them. He will not reduce taxes paid by high income Americans. He will raise them no more than the amount that Congress reduces loopholes. Except he will reduce deductions to a maximum of $17,000 to $25,000. He will spend $2 trillion more on the military, if Congress lets him. He repeal Obamacare and will allow the states, everyone of them, to implement Obamacare. He will increase education spending, if Congress passes it. He will keep Medicare just like it is for everyone that it stays the same for, but replaces it for everyone that Congress changes it for. The $716 billion that Obamacare has saved for Medicare, he will put back in Medicare, which would obviously raise the cost by that amount. Social Security, which will not change until Congress changes it, and then it will be different and better, by definition, because it isn't the same. Social Security must continue but it may change to a privatized system, if a Republican Congress does what it voted to do in the Ryan Budget.
He said 3% of the small businesses employ half of the workforce. How small is that?
To quote Borosage: Now he's pushing tax cuts and deregulation, but don't worry. "My plan is not like anything that's been tried before." We're all in this together. Of course, the plan is secret; the details too complicated. But elect me first -- let me as always take my piece up front -- and then you'll see, we'll all prosper. If the man from Bain can sell that, we are all in big trouble.
Bottom line is four years of George W.
