|President Trump's one-page tax plan may have fooled the writer of The Record's Page 1 headline, but cartoonist Dave Granlund and other newspapers denounced the phony's assault on the middle class.|
"... The skimpy one-page tax proposal released" by the Trump administration "is, by any historical standard, a laughable stunt by a gang of plutocrats [wealthiest citizens] looking to enrich themselves at the expense of the country's future.
"Two of Mr. Trump's top lieutenants -- Steve Mnuchin and Gary Cohn, both multimillionaires and former Goldman Sachs bankers -- trotted out a plan that would slash taxes for businesses and wealthy families, including Mr. Trump's, in the vague hope of propelling economic growth.
"... Some middle-class families might not benefit much or at all, because the plan does away with important deductions like those for state and local taxes."
