President Trump's “massive” tax reform strengthens economic and national security

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff


I gave you my analysis of the GOP tax bill that will be heading to President Trump’s desk to be signed into law, and why I think it could very well see Trump go down as the greatest president in history for our economy.

Common Sense,

Nice dodge, because you clearly don’t know what you are talking about.

You are just supporting Trump because he’s not the Democrats and you can’t actually be objective and admit that this budget is a piss poor job by any economic standard, which is why economists are laughing at this budget plan.

It would be nice to read on The Rebel just once – yes I support Trump, but man did he fuck up with this. There is ZERO objectivity.

Dear Frank. please take notice, the sun, that ball of fire 93 million miles away does not take VISA or cash to change it’s effects on the climate, period. You are another paid liberal troll. Well done, you opened your mouth and removed all doubt, just another.

Common Sense,

I own a business. You are missing the point, because you are too busy sucking on Trump’s balls.

They could have achieved the same thing or even better with an actual great tax plan. Instead they are appeasing the average stiff with a bit of extra money like showing something shiny to a monkey, but the consequences of that per the tax plan are horrible and will have long term negative effects to the economy.

If you can’t see that, then you are clueless on how budgets and economics work.

And Jihadi Justin keeps raising taxes to spend on Islamics!

Obviously Frank, you have never owned a business. And you said you finally got around to looking at it, but you didn’t spend any time thinking about it, like a business would. AT&T for example, $1000 bonus to employees (over 200,000 of them) and an investment in the billions, which means more jobs, not just a few more dollars, but jobs for thousands of people, it’s called growth. You should really spend more time understanding, and less time trolling when all you do is open your mouth yet again to remove all doubt how foolish you look.

A piss poor job actually can & will be attributed to the Democrats the NDP & of course the Liberals !
I will take a couple extra dollars in my pocket & the billions being reinevested in the economy over the carbon tax & ensuing capital flight any day !!

Jim Reinhart,

This tax reform is garbage ultimately. A piss poor job that is a smokescreen because it will give Joe Sixpack a few more dollars, but the consequences of that are horrible. There are plenty of reason to vote against this.

If this is the best they can do with a new tax plan – that’s pretty sad.

- Strengthening economic and national security and looking out for the nations’ interests is what the president and elected officials are supposed to do. It’s supposed to be a no-brainer. The fact that Democrats & RINOs are not only opposed to it but are actually in meltdown over it says a lot about them. For 8 years (maybe longer) businesses were sitting on funds that they would normally use to hire new people, expand operations & buy new equipment because they never knew what new business killing regulations or tax they were going to be hit with. Trumps’ election released some of those funds. His moving ahead with eliminating regulations released more of it. The fact that he was at the very least not going to raise taxes released even more of it. Now that these tax cuts are going through, expect an economic boom of epic proportions.

With all the Never Trumpers the MSM & their constant negative rhetoric towards him I’m sure we are all subconsciously warily of him in some way.
Regardless of what people may or may not (feel) about him lets just try imagine the state of affairs we’d be in had he not won !
Go Trump Go !

Nobody cared a wit when Obama ran the deficit up to 20 trillion and was the highest spending President in history. Donald Trump spends $1.98 and the left goes nuts. Where was the outrage then?
Or does the left finally realize that debts and deficits are bad. I’m not holding my breath.

I finally had a chance to look at it. It’ll give the average stiff a few extra bucks, but drive up the federal debt in the process due to the large tax decrease for the wealthy. Honestly, it kind of sucks if that’s Trump’s best attempt at tax reform.

Fair comment Doug Laird… which should be a “heads-up” for what is coming down the pike vis-a-vis Canada/USA relations…

I certainly can’t argue with Cardillo’s claim that Trump may go down as the president that was the best for the economy. I may not like everything he says, or everything he does, or some of his Twitter rants (even though I do love a lot of his Twitter rants, especially the ones I recognize as successful attempts to play the MSM like a fiddle, he knows exactly how to get them to react the way he wants and I think that’s funny.)

In fact, to be honest, even though it will put me way offside with everyone here, I never really liked the man, and probably never will. I always thought he was kind of an arrogant jackass, and probably always will. During the run-up to the Republican primaries, I frequently hoped that someone I could support would enter the race, and the Donald would declare it all a big reality show and drop out, and would then be put forward as the new president’s Secretary of Commerce. With the economic policies he espoused I thought that might be a great place for him. But alas, no such candidate existed, That left Trump as the best of a bad bunch, to me. Rubio, Cruz, Bush – I just couldn’t envision them as president.

And then came the campaign for the Presidency. That, to me, was a no-brainer for anyone who has two neurons available for critical thinking. Notwithstanding Hillary’s obvious shortcomings, I just couldn’t foresee how the Democrats’ continuation of the failed policies of the last twenty-four years would help America (and yes, I include George Dubya in that failure.) So again, that left Trump as the better of two choices that I didn’t like. (Did I mention that I always thought he was kind of an arrogant jackass, and probably always will?) I just hoped that he would surround himself with a balanced group of people that would keep him on the right path.

And now I am seeing the results. With what levels of wins the obstructionists in Congress and the judiciary have let him have, those results actually look pretty good, especially economically, and somewhat in the return to the rule of law and the return to some measure of control over their own borders. I don’t always like his choices for the people he places in the administration. I still may not like everything he says, or everything he does, or some of his tweets. But I am wise enough to know that there will never be a candidate in any party, in any country, who I will agree with all the way down the line. (Did I mention that I always thought he was kind of an arrogant jackass, and probably always will?)

But at least he’s our jackass. And we’re gonna keep him.

Great quote, “Economic security means national security”, something Justin ‘the budgets balance themselves’ Trudeau has no comprehension of.

A promise made and a promise kept, a rarity in this day and age. Well done President Trump.

Very good analysis John.

Great commentary John Cordillo. Your analysis of the sanity of Republican tax policy and the social welfare and economy destroying lunacy of the Democrat tax agenda, make it clear what a tremendous achievement the final passing and Presidential signing of this historical bill will be. For all the criticism of President Donald J. Trump, it is unlikely this would have happened as decisively under anyone else.

IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND OR RELATIVE WHO YOU THINK WOULD ENJOY THE REBEL MEDIA …. WHY NOT BUY THEM A SUBSCRIPTION ….. I’M SURE THEY WOULD LIKE THE NEW LINE UP … FROM TOMMY ROBINSON’S READING OF THE MORNING PAPERS ,,,, JOHN CARDILLO’S EXCELLENT REPORTING ,,,, THE DAILY TONGUE IN CHEEK REPORTS FROM DAVID MENZIES ,,,, CHRISTOPHER WILSON REPORTS FROM THE LEFT COAST ,,,,, START YOUR DAY WITH MARK LATHAM COMMENTS FROM DOWN UNDER.
