As a small-business owner, I’m happy with tax reform. It will lower the business income taxes I pay, as well as slightly reducing my personal taxes.
Like everyone else on the planet, I like the idea of reduced taxes. But as a consumer reporter, I’m obliged to point out six lies you’ve been spoon-fed about the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
I’m not suggesting the bill itself is necessarily bad. Fact is, until the law has been in effect for a period of time, we can’t be certain what the effects will be. What we can be certain of, however, is that not all of what you’ve been told during the path to this bill’s passage is true.
Every responsible citizen needs to understand the motives and methods of those we’ve elected to represent us, and this law offers a clear view of both.
This isn’t about Democrats or Republicans. It’s about politicians and the masters they serve.
