Are you a successful small business owner or a self-employed hard worker?
Do you think you’re giving enough money to the government to fund social projects?
Well, Donald Trump would disagree.
Donald Trump said on Sunday he is open to raising taxes on wealthy Americans, backing off his prior proposal to reduce taxes on all Americans.
“I am willing to pay more, and you know what, the wealthy are willing to pay more,” Trump told ABC’s “This Week.”
Trump’s tax proposal, released last September, included broad tax breaks for businesses and households. He proposed reducing the highest income-tax rate to 25 percent from the current 39.6 percent rate.
“By the time it gets negotiated, it’s going to be a different plan,” Trump told ABC. He emphasized in interviews with both ABC and in a separate interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” that his priorities were lowering taxes on the middle class and businesses.
At least Trump is willing to work with both sides of the aisle. It doesn’t appear he’ll force anything down our throats the way Obama has for the past seven-plus years.
So, that’s a plus.
Otherwise, thumbs down.
Trump has to know that raising taxes on the wealthy doesn’t solve any problems. I mean, he has to, right?
