It is time for the GOP to payback the billionaire donors. Over the last election cycle, the $80-billion Koch brothers have spent well over $100 million on nation-wide GOP campaigns. The GOP controls Congress, the Senate, and the Presidency. Congressman Paul Ryan and Senator Mitch McConnell are ready to deliver for billionaire Trump not matter what the cost to the national debt. The economy is doing very well with record corporate profits. That is not enough for corporate billionaires. They want more. Billionaires do not want their estates taxed when they die. They made billions off US taxpayers; why not pay a percentage back to Uncle Sam when they die? There is another down side to the giveaway. Our national debt is now past $22 trillion and middle-class wages have not enjoyed increased wages since the Reagan and Bush “trickle-down tax programs.” The Trump trickle-down tax program promises the same while adding another $1.5 trillion to the national debt. Trickle-down III locks in massive tax breaks to the top 10 percent while giving the middle class a kiss and a promise. The billionaire con man will not show his taxes and how the tax giveaway helps him.
