A couple thoughts about the GOP's "save the rich" tax overhaul.
First, about the same amount of taxes could have been cut if "our" representatives and president had structured the deal to give the average member of the richest five percent $100 less of a tax cut and the average middle class taxpayer $20 more of one.
Members of the richest five percent need that extra $100 they're getting less than you and I need another dollar. They're getting it because most of the GOP Congress critters care about the rich a whole lot more than they care about the middle class or those worthless poor folks. And aren't a few of those critters actually in that richest five percent themselves?
