It’s Good To Be the King!

Remember when President Trump talked about his tax-reform plan, which he said would benefit the middle class at the expense of wealthy Americans like himself? And when he said: “They can call me all they want. It’s not going to help,” (he said of his rich friends). “And it’s not good for me, believe me.” (Did you believe him?)

Well President Trump is spending the Christmas holiday with his family in Florida this year (each trip there costs “we the people” 21 million tax dollars) and according to CBS News (all fake because they work for the Democrats and Hillary who actually rules the world) he told friends at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, just hours after he got there that: “You all just got a lot richer.”

Proponents of the bill celebrate it as relief for the middle class that also provides a tax cut based spending stimulus for large corporations… to the tune of 1.4 trillion dollars, which for all intents and purposes will be going to key donors and lobbyists, the richest members of Congress, President Trump, his family and other families like his. (but of course we don’t know for sure how much President Trump will get because our president won’t show us his taxes)

But we can all rejoice in the fact that our share should result in somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 dollars next year of tax relief, depending on the size of our paycheck today of course. That should amount to anywhere between 19 and 38 dollars a paycheck (or 38 and 76 dollars if you are paid bi-monthly) That’s 30 gallons of gas each month! (nothing to sneeze at, right?)

At that rate your tax breaks could save you enough money to take you by car from Maine to Mar-a-Lago in 2.12 months (of saving your tax breaks)…but if you wanted to go there in style like the POTUS does (at least bi-monthly, and for 21 mill a vacay) then you’ll have to save your tax breaks for 127,000 months or about 10,500 years! (That’s if your getting the BIG middle class tax break)

In conclusion?: It’s good to be the King isn’t it? (and I suspect it always has been)

    Every year when we’re in FL at Xmas we go up to the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach for Xmas Eve service. The service is amazing; huge pipe organ, great choir and a brass ensemble.If you’re a musician like me, it’s special. For the last 2 years, His Eminence The Donald, has been in attendance (2 years ago actually giving autographs, can you believe it?). Last year (post election/pre-inauguration), we were one of the few who didn’t stand (and certainly didn’t applaud) when he arrived.

    I imagine protocol says I must stand this year. I’ll pray for forgiveness for this afterward. Anyway, it’s almost time to leave to get there…..if you don’t get there nearly an hour before the service, you don’t get in. I wish he would go to church in a poor area of Washington, not here with his $$$$ peeps. He might learn humility. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.

    Typical of the plunderers and pillagers. Merry Christmas, in spite of it all.

    Don’t get too giddy, counting your precious pennies of tax savings. Wait until the dust settles on your healthcare costs…which it appears, will eat up any and all savings you might have. Don’t start that vacation drive to Florida just yet.

    You should NEVER trust anyone who tells you “BELIEVE ME!”
