Trump Concentrates on Money Grab

Resistbot from September 27:

The current President's tax proposal amounts to a level of self dealing we have not seen in this country since at least Teapot Dome. The New York Times reports that he could save $1.1 billion under the proposal. The GOP Congress has enabled him to continue to flagrantly flout the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, and is now engaged in helping him avoid his tax obligations. The tax proposal seems almost singularly targeted at reducing his own tax bill. The so-called Kansas Experiment demonstrated conclusively that massive tax cuts for the rich do not result in revenue replacement through economic growth. Please oppose the current president's kleptocracy in all its forms, including his attempt to turn his time in office into a massive tax windfall.
