https://theweek.com/articles/822464/gops-tax-cut-just-keeps-getting-worse So let's review 5 of the alleged goals from the GOP Tax Cut. 1) Boost Worker's Wages. - Once you adjust for inflation, worker's wages have not budged since Trump took office. #Fail 2) Create Jobs. The number of new jobs created is almost precisely the same trend line as before the law was passed. #Fail 3) Create more investment. - New capital good orders (tracked by the Commerce Department) and new capital investment by small businesses barely changed from the same trend line. #Fail 4) Return Corporate Profits from Overseas. - The overall trend of keeping money overseas has not shifted in the slightest. #Fail. 5) Result in a larger tax rebate for most voters. - Tax Refunds are down an average of Eight Percent so far. #Fail All five of those alleged goals are failing. At best, the GOP was sloppy and bungled the implementation of its most significant policy initiative. At worst, the GOP intentionally deceived the American people solely to make corporate profits higher. Either way, the Government Accountability Office has already concluded that the Trump administration ****ed up the Federal Tax Withholdings. The only goal, the real goal, of the GOP tax cut is to drastically increase corporate profits. And by that standard, it was a resounding success. Corporate tax revenue is down 31%. Oh, and the federal deficit has increased by 17% despite a booming economy.
