Goodlatte and Trump pull a fast one on taxes

To celebrate the House of Representatives’ approval of the Republican tax heist (which Congress ultimately passed with zero Democratic support), Congressman Goodlatte posted this tweet highlighting the alleged benefits for ordinary working people:

Surely even Goodlatte realizes what a joke the “taxes on a postcard” and “do away with special interest loopholes” pledges turned out to be. And President Trump gave away the game yesterday when he said honestly (for a change) that the corporate tax cuts– not middle class tax cuts– are “probably the biggest factor in this plan.”

It would be interesting to know how much Goodlatte will benefit personally from the tax plan compared to his less well-to-do constituents. But we are as likely to find out about that as we are to see President Trump’s tax returns.
