Republicans are already trying to raise taxes

"Republicans in the House of Representatives are inadvertently setting a nasty political and economic trap for Donald Trump. Yes, it's the Republicans, not the Democrats, who are ready to administer an unnecessary black eye to the new President. That's not their intention, but it manifestly will be the result. The vehicle for this unwitting GOP punch is a new exaction called the border adjustability tax. This levy will cost American consumers at least a trillion dollars over the next ten years. Knowing how Washington politicians calculate these things, you can bet the amount will end up being considerably more." (02/15/17)
