The faithful, as usual, won't see what's going on. The scam is: the tax cut is how they complete the theft of the Social Security Trust Fund, built with the payroll tax on the lowest incomes, and secure it in the pockets of the rich parasites who own the country.

The military contractors and Medical Corporate fraudsters already got most of the SS Trust Fund that conservative [corporatist] politicians of both parties borrowed and spent to further profits on [America's] owners' intrigues. The tax cut and budget cut will be the reason the debt to America's workers must not be re-payed. SS and Medicare, solvent on paper with the Trust Fund, will need drastic cuts to give Trump and his cronies big tax relief.

Oh well ... the rich get richer ... C'est la vie ... bend over! It's the way it's been since antiquity. We can't change it. The Republicans designed this scam and have been preparing us for it for years.

The Dems will probably continue to ignore the working people and cling to the semi elite middle class snobs and wannabe assholes, and wonder why the working poor (a much larger segment than it was 50 years ago) vote for morons and frauds like Trump, Ted Cruz or Paul Ryan.

Our only hope is that those politicians and persons of influence who claim progressive values begin to understand the growing desperation of most of us and start to nourish genuine class consciousness. ... It's possible! ...

The worst of it is cuts to SS and Medicare that give the Trust Fund working people's payroll tax built to the top 10% in the tax cut! The money has already been borrowed and spent on overpriced medicine and the fraudulent military industrial complex!

The "tax cut" is a giveaway of the SS payroll tax that has been borrowed and spent. The beneficiaries are to the top ten percent who pay little or none into the Trust Fund. When they reduce or eliminate SS and Medicare to "balance" the budget, the ripoff of the poor to further enrich the parasites who own everything will be complete.

AND these united states will move alot closer to being Bankrupt - which means the wealthy few will get hurt as the general public continues to take a beating from government in the pocket of the wealthy few. Yeah assholes (wealthy few) - sooner or later all of your machinations will see you create the final downfall of not only the united states but also the downfall of all your hoarded wealth as the USA currency becomes worthless.

Every Public safeguard put in place to see that the USA never sees a great depression again is being destroyed and to make matters even worse - those who caused the great depression and then the great recession have been given even more freedoms to expand upon bad (criminal) practices! Going to Hell and moving at the speed of business!

How did we (society/civilization) get to where we are today? It has been a very long ad campaign designed to make the public want what is being marketed. ALL OF IT good bad or indifferent. Yes Fossil Fuel - wall street - fat - fat diet - sugar - sugar free - guns - me 1st etc etc etc etc etc

One good movie that does a good job of laying it all out is Branded (scene set in Russia with the introduction to and rise of capitalism)

Psychological warfare practiced on the general population for decades - centuries!

We find ourselves at a point in history - where truth has little or no place in marketing (yes including politics) and so truth has little or no place in society/civilization!

Samuel L. Jackson as villain in "Kingsman: The Secret Service" said that a virus causes the temperature of the host to rise to fight it. Either the virus dies or the host dies and then the virus dies. He continued that the planet is the host and the human race the virus, exemplified by the global warming we've produced. Either we will die or the host will die ... then we'll die.

It's not a perfect metaphor but I sure get the message. In fact I communicated the same sort of message to a psychiatrist in 1970. He thought I was projecting and wanted to explore my self destructive tendencies. The hope of salvation is slim!

It's funny coming from Samuel L. Jackson - I mean - you know = the credit card pimp!

But yes - there is the underlying truth = Unfettered greed is killing the world.
