Tax cuts will not trickle down | Letter

Congress continues to find ways to steal our tax money and give it to the people with the least reason to spend it wisely.

Lower corporate taxes will not trickle down to the middle class. Corporations will not hand out money to workers or build new manufacturing plants with their sudden surplus. Corporations have been awash in cash and profits for years and wages have not increased. Are we so naive that we fall for this “BS” every time?

This year social security is still running a surplus. That surplus is going to contribute to this massive withdrawal for the rich. When trickle down does not materialize, the rich will demand that the social security trust fund be liquidated and the whole SSA be abandoned. While everyone continues to pay into a great security net at a surplus we are being robbed of our future.

Is this really our priority or are we being conned by the Ayn Rand crowd?

Michael Jeffers,

Kirkland
