Tonight at the State of the Union, President Trump said: “Since we passed tax cuts, roughly 3 million workers have already gotten tax cut bonuses — many of them thousands of dollars per worker.” That just doesn't add up.
It's great that a few American workers are getting bonuses, but what about the thousands that are getting laid off by these same firms? Comcast, AT&T, Walmart and Kimberly Clark are just a few of the large companies touting the benefits of the Trump tax plan at the same time that they're laying off huge swaths of their workforce. And what Trump, his party, and big business don't want you to notice is that these bonuses are just a rounding error compared to the immense amounts of wealth that they're stealing from the working class as part of this scam. That's how 'trickle down' economics works.
What we believe is that it's the economy is only as healthy as the ability of the middle-class to support it. Policies that benefit the working class like raising the minimum wage, providing health care and paid family leave will benefit society as a whole. And we need Democrats in office that aren't afraid to say that. If Democrats nationwide are going to take back the House and Senate this fall and put an end to Trump's wrecking-ball agenda, it's important that we talk about the economy, and that we tell people the truth about what's going on.
It's critical that we take Virginia's 2nd Congressional district this fall, but it's equally important that we elect a candidate that supports workers and puts their interests first.
So if you're sick of what you heard tonight and want a Representative that will put truth to power, MAKE A CONTRIBUTION and help us continue the fight.
