Buck Sexton weighed-in on President Trump’s new tax push on Thursday night, calling the current debate in this country blatant class warfare; with democrats using the politics of “envy and resentment” to bully Republicans into caving on significant tax reforms.
“Just like with healthcare, where the democrats offer you ‘free.’ It’s free, healthcare will be free, everything will be free. Do they have to explain themselves? No, not really, because they’re the good guys, because they want to give it to you for free. Only the rich will pay,” said Buck.
“You could see how this translates into the debate over taxes, where only the rich should really pay, and any break is a break for the rich. It’s just class warfare. It’s the politics of envy and resentment which are incredibility potent, very powerful forces as we know,” he added.
“This is why you get some of this polling that says the majority of Americans don’t think the rich should get a tax break, don’t believe that corporations should get a tax break,” Sexton said.
Buck then outlined some of the President’s proposals, including significant tax cuts for corporations but more modest cuts for average Americans.
“That’s nice, that’s hopeful. But, If you’re making a hundred grand, one thousand dollars isn’t life changing,” said Sexton. “That’s why I worry that you could see a huge corporate tax break.”
“You’ve got to look at how this is going to be portrayed. Because that thousand-dollar tax break that you may get now, might only last a year if it looks like the American people are getting the short-end of the stick,” he added.
