“At his daughter Ivanka’s urging, President Trump is showing us his liberal or progressive side by urging Congress to enact tax-code legislation relating to childcare and paid leave. Of course, this shouldn’t surprise anyone given that conservatives have, one, long supported other liberal programs, such as Social Security and Medicare, and, two, have long supported the income-tax code as a method of social engineering. Trump is providing a valuable lesson for Americans. Not only does income taxation provide government officials to seize whatever percentage of people’s income they want, Trump is reminding us that it also provides a means by which government officials can provide special benefits to people or manipulate them into doing what the government wants them to do.” (03/03/17)
