It’s easy to see things like the Carrier deal, the jawboning of the likes of Boeing, and the saber-rattling against China on trade being quite popular, at the same time the truly big things happening in Washington aren’t, such as Obamacare “repeal” without a replacement, a deficit-increasing traditional Republican “tax cut for the rich,” and even — although this is much less likely — Medicare reform.Lowry not only admits that the GOP tax agenda is tax cuts for the rich but he also concedes that this may increase the deficit if not offset by things like “Medicare reform” which is not reform but repeal. Of course Lowry also penned something on repealing Obamacare. As Brian Faler notes:
The big winners in Republican plans to repeal Obamacare are likely to be the rich. Rescinding the Affordable Care Act means not only taking away health coverage from some 20 million Americans. It also means scrapping two big tax increases Democrats imposed on the wealthy to help pay for it all.That is the entire GOP agenda – more tax cuts for the rich.
