Why Does the Democratic Party Disapprove of A Consumer Tax Cut?

( Even Trump’s fiscal 2021 budget, has in it a projected individual (Consumer) tax cut costing $1.4 trillion. Yet, Dems, through presidential candidates, “lead messaging” ignore the need, for such a Tax Cut. However, any Republican Tax Cut to consumers will lightly go through a 3rd party, diluting any real benefits to consumers, rewarding instead the 3rd parties, who will be millionaires and billionaires.

A pragmatic solution, of A 10%, $25,000 Consumer Tax Cut, which will grow our economy beyond 3% GDP is realistically doable. The power of our economy is consumer spending, which is 70% of GDP. Consumer spending is weakening, due to low wages and increasing rent, student loan and credit card debt.

Trump’s $1.5 Trillion “Direct” Tax Cut to millionaires and billionaires failed. Annual GDP for 2019 DROPPED TO 2.3%. 3% GDP, prior to the Great Recession of 2008 was the norm for the U.S. economy. It’s obvious even to Republicans A Demand Side Tax Cut is needed, according to Trump’s budget.

The key issues of Voters deal with MONEY. 42% of VOTERS say Health Care is an issue. Health Care comes down to MONEY, which you need to pay for it. 18% say Income Inequality is an issue; MONEY again! 60% see MONEY as issue #1.

We should ask Democratic candidates, why they disapprove, of A DIRECT TAX CUT to consumers? We can see, 5 DIRECT TAX CUTS to millionaires, billionaires and corporations (MBC’s), since 1980 worked in making MBC’s wealthier, without growing our economy. Yet, A TAX CUT to us “will grow our economy, as consumers are 70% of the nation’s growth story.” When consumers stop spending, the economy will go into a decline.

Consumers want what millionaires, billionaires and corporations get in TAX CUTS; Money handed to them “DIRECTLY,” so they can decide how its spent.

A logical delivery channel, for such a TAX CUT, is Social Security. Why not Use SS, as the mechanism through which a 10%, $25,000 Consumer Tax Cut can flow, efficiently? By giving consumers such A Tax Cut; We Grow OUR Economy, Impact Poverty and Income Inequality.

Baby Boomers, who would be the targeted group of such a tax cut, include an equitable number of the black population. They are retiring at a rate of 10,000 a day. Hand our retirees a 10% tax cut of approximately $25,000.00 and reform this capitalistic economy.

Why is it, doable? The math is on America Consumers’ side. Do the MATH, yourself. 10,000 Boomers a day RETIRING times $25,410.00 = $254,100,000.00. 365 days times $254,100,000.00 = $92,746,500,000.00, annually. 10 years times $92,746,500,000.00 = $927.5 billion, over 10 years. The $927.5 billion cost is less than Trump’s $1.5 Trillion Tax Cut.

How do all Americans benefit? They benefit, if the tax cut plan is continued beyond the ten years the tax cut legislation will be initially written for; to have it enacted into law. And, if I were a betting man; once the law is enacted, it will become permanent and extended to future retirees.

This “Direct” Consumer Tax Cut, is an opportunity for one generation, the Baby Boomers (1946-1964), to leave a legacy of reformation to America’s capitalist system, that will benefit and be felt financially, by future generations: Generation X (1965-1980); Millennials (1981-1996); and even Generation Z (1997-2012), when it comes to income inequality.

This is a vision of our future “in which every one should be able to see themselves.” Can you see yourself receiving your $25,000.00 Tax Cut check, as part of your first Social Security retirement deposit and thereafter, your regular Social Security check?

How do you make your TAX CUT a reality? It is simple! Put this plan ON the ballot. Make a $10.00 donation FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, by purchasing “The Fix This Time,” making it a #1 best seller, where no politician can ignore YOU.

Remember, even Republicans have now acknowledged, the need to spend at least $1.4 Trillion on the Consumer. It is our way of saying strongly and specifically, how that money should be spent, that is, if you like the idea of receiving $25,000.00. If you don’t make the effort to be heard, who then can you blame?
