Left-wing newspaper disregards conservative president’s tax overhaul
The Arizona Republic has taken a breather from its incessant Trump-bashing to focus on a serial sexual predator. But does anyone really care about the license plate on the van transporting Harvey Weinstein to the Van Nuys airport? Are you concerned about the model of the private jet he was flying to a Wickenburg, Arizona rehab for sex addicts, or to whom it was registered? The state’s newspaper of record seems to think this is newsworthy.
Prestige, power and money — lots of it — make the unappealing strangely compelling, especially when the aggressive predator was a high dollar honcho in Democrat circles. Open Secrets lists the 185 individual political donations Weinstein has made. His predilections were well-known and ignored by Hollywood elites and the Dem recipients, who didn’t want the money train to stop.
President Trump is dedicating his energies to tax reform, a major issue that resonates with American taxpayers, though it doesn’t have the salacious aura of Weinstein, an Oscar-winning producer, spending decades hitting on alluring Hollywood stars, on the rise or already there. It took Hillary Clinton, supposedly the great women’s advocate, nearly a week to denounce her prolific donor’s debauchery.
Ignore the garbage, just as you ignored the recipients of Weinstein’s largesse.
With these words: “Your government is working for you once again, not for the donors, not the special interests, but the hardworking taxpaying citizens of our country” — President Trump outlined his bold plan to lower rates for Americans in every tax bracket, simplify the tax code, and reduce the U.S. corporate tax rate, which is one of the highest in the world. There is no rational argument against keeping more money in the hands of those who earned it.
