Trump is going to be in Missouri today talking with a group of blue collar workers about tax cuts.
If any of them are hoping for specifics, they're going to be disappointed since Trump won't be offering up an actual plan. Rather he'll be pontificating and waxing unpoetically about the need for tax reform. (as if that was even in question.)
Frankly, I get tired of hearing politicians drone on about the importance of tax reform and then seeing nothing get done. The truth is, Trump can't talk about specifics because he doesn't have any. His tax plan died with Obamacare reform. The money to make his tax plan worked came from cuts in Obamacare.
I use the term "cuts" loosely since they wouldn't go into effect for ten years and the likelihood of them ever being implemented was close to zero.
No, this speech is just another set of empty promises and pipe dreams designed to rally the base and give the appearance Trump is actually working for the people.
I thought it would be a good idea to run back through it again.
Don't forget to share the show!
