MUST WATCH!   How media pressure leads to White House action

President Trump: With tax reform we can make it morning in America again

Evidently Donald J. Trump has never studied US History or Economics? I wish we could see his college transcripts! AFTER the 1981 Tax Cuts the economy tanked and unemployment went UP to 10%!  Recession of 1981–82

How do I know that? Because I was 21 years old in 1981 and remember it. The 1980s were good for RICH people, not so much for the NON-Rich people (sound familiar?) That 1981 Tax Cut Trump bragged about was mostly rescinded in 1982 and guess what, the economy (and Reagan's approval rating) went back up  Reagan’s Recession
