Last 24 Hours:

This should not be normal

It’s not just Trump.

As Rebecca Kysar notes, courtesy of Tax Policy Center estimates:

“The House blueprint … awards three-quarters of its tax cuts to earners in the top 1 percent ….  Even factoring in favorable macroeconomic effects, the plan would also add trillions to the country’s debt, creating an unsustainable fiscal chasm.”

We’ve been too gaslighted for too long to find this surprising. But if you step back for a second and just think about it in political, social, economic and budgetary context, its reckless and malicious irresponsibility beggars belief. In no still-sane country could such a plan even be proposed by anyone, apart from tin-hat lunatics ranting on street corners.

This is not normal.  A country in which it has become normal is not normal.
