It seemed like every time Obama did anything, it cost a fortune. Americans paid $35 MILLION dollars for our dear leader’s many excursions to his (alleged) homeland of Hawaii. When he went golfing, which was frequent, he managed to keep both his pen and his mighty phone, it cost taxpayers $36 million just for one game with Tiger Woods.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, has managed to save the American people millions just while having breakfast, and this is only his fourth day (second work day) in office. He’s kept more promises before he was even sworn in than Obama did during his whole eight years in office and has saved us more money on his second day in the chair, too.
Trump said during a breakfast business meeting that, “We are going to be cutting taxes massively for both the middle class and for companies,” adding, “And that’s massively. We’re trying to get it down to anywhere from 15 to 20 percent.”
When Ronald Reagan cut taxes in the 1980’s it lead to the not only the almost overnight recovery from the grief that was the result of Jimmy Carter’s presidency, but also lead to an economic boom that to this day remains perhaps the greatest economic run in American history.
The average family saved thousands of dollars and companies could afford to hire, which they did. Not until the Bush and Clinton era of NAFTA disasters (of which repairing is on Trump’s “to do soon” list) did Reagan’s plan become fully null and void.
One can argue that the people of the state will pay dearly if the laws are lax, but this line of reasoning is just as heavily flawed. To begin with, the EPA oversaw one of the worst disasters to hit the United States in quite some time, affecting four states. The EPA has also allowed deadly nuclear power plants to increase the cancer rates and overall health decline while chasing their imaginary friend, Global Warming.
Meanwhile, if states had had more control over the say of what was and was not allowed, perhaps the accident could have been accounted for, replacing the dead silence and lack of accountability that the EPA has shown. No citizen or governor is going to allow their state to be poisoned just because the Fed’s are not there looming like Lurch.
While again thankfully saying that companies that attempted to move jobs away from America would pay, and Trump also promised that “If that happens, we are going to be imposing a very major border tax on the products when it comes in.”
Trump also said that he was surprised by how damaging some regulations can be. This statement needs to really be allowed to sink in because Donald Trump is a billionaire who has met more than his fair share of businessmen and even he is taken aback by the extent to which overly cumbersome regulations hamper the American economy. There is volumes worth of knowledge to be absorbed in that one fact alone.
Trump also said that “We are going to be cutting regulation massively … we think we can cut regulations by 75 percent,” which is exactly why the American people so proudly and with great enthusiasm put the man into office. There is over regulation around every corner, restricting bars/nightclubs, oil drilling, private land use, raw milk, and countless other hurdles too many to name.
How can America compete when we restrict ourselves for no reason at the behest of every environmentalist who buys the warming lie and bows at the feet of the UN when every other nation is producing as if ordained by God?
It has been the standard practice of every president in recent memory to be obsessed with the thought of holding America back or of otherwise harming the country. They allow burdens to be put on how we conduct business not only with the world who is often given unfair leverage over us, but also even within our own borders. Our leaders sign us up for awful trade agreements that give our jobs away like charity baskets while our unemployment lines and welfare rolls grow like an Obama deficit.
America is not allowed to produce anything for a reasonable rate and the rest of the world is allowed to produce anything that it wants in whatever way they choose.
It is time for America to stop allowing the left to shame our people in failure. Yes, a few rich men owned slaves two hundred years ago but that does not mean that America has to hang it’s head low for the rest of human time any more than it means that just because we freed France from the Nazi’s in the 1920’s that we need to keep meddling in every affair as we do today. History misapplied can be as bad as not learning history at all.
Removing these burdens from the economic landscape could very easily lead to the greatest economic boom since the Atari was new.
