Regarding the GOP tax package, President Trump tweeted yesterday “the results will speak for themselves, starting very soon.” I did the math. Based on the figures reported in the Gazette-Times on Dec. 21, people who make less than $25,000 will get a meager 0.2 percent cut ($60 divided by $25,000). People who earn $86,000 will get a 1 percent cut ($900 divided by $86,000). People who earn more than $733,000 will get almost a 7 percent cut ($51,000 divided by $733,000).

Trump is right. The results speak for themselves, and what I hear is a tax package singing to the wealthy.
