Left Marooned By Trump Tax Cut

By Dick Morris on January 2, 2018

Democrats and liberals have bet the house that the Trump tax cut would either not pass or not work. Now that the first has happened and the second is happening, they have no good place to position themselves.

They complain that it gives too much to the rich and does nothing for the poor, an accusation that rings more and more flat as black unemployment reaches a twenty year low.

They can argue that it is a giveaway to rich corporations, even as its job creating impact among smaller companies becomes more and more evident.

The impact of this tax cut is too wide and too broad for even Democrats to miss it in their daily economic lives.

The left will, doubtless attribute the economic growth to Obama — just as it blamed the bad economic times on Bush. But, after a year of radical Trump regulatory and economic changes — and the passage of a tax cut bill all agree is a radical departure –the blame or credit for economic change would seem to be fairly affixed to the Trump policies, not to any residual Obama hangover.

Democrats can argue that the substantial increase in the deficit constitutes the real cost of the tax cut and that its economic harm will be felt for years. But they had better hasten to make that argument. The Treasury Department estimates that, at a growth rate of over 3%, the deficit won’t go up.

(In the last two quarters, the growth rate was 3.1% and 3.2% respectively).

Democrats have painted themselves into a corner by their violent opposition to the tax cut and their partisan refusal to cooperate in shaping it.

Of course, they can switch gears and attack Trump over the phony Russian collusion story or await his next tasteless tweet. They can call all those who back Trump “deplorable” and ask how such a monster can ever be president. But they are too late with their recycled rhetoric.

The fact is that the left is out of options.
