Who cares

The evening news just spent more than 5 minutes complaining that president Trump was going to save money on his taxes under the new tax plan. It's as if they want a plan specifically aimed at Trump and his businesses. It's enough to make one wonder if any of the journalists have half a brain. Of course any tax plan that reduces taxes will seem to  favor the wealthy, the wealthy pay the lion's share of the taxes.

This whole debate over taxes is frustrating because congress refuses to give up control of our money.They should be discussing the elimination of the income tax and the institution of a national sales tax. However I think that is just a pipe dream it would make it to hard to buy votes with loopholes and handouts.
