Trump Drops October Surprise on Dems During Cruz Rally: Massive 10% Tax Cut

Path 27

In a brilliant move before the midterm elections, President Donald Trump proposed a massive tax cut for the middle class.

Trump spoke about his plan at a rally for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday in Houston.

“We’re going to be putting in a 10 percent tax cut for middle-income families,” he told the crowd.

The president said he has been working on it for a few months with Rep. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and it will be introduced next year.

As expected, those gathered at Toyota Center roared with applause after hearing Trump’s proposal.

“And that is in addition to the big tax cuts that you’ve already gotten, but this one is for middle income,” the president added.

This is a great move ahead of the midterm elections because it won’t be easy for Democrats to oppose this plan.

Do you support Trump's proposed tax cut?

Democrats have attacked Trump in the past for his hugely popular tax cuts, which lowered taxes for both the middle class and wealthy.

With an additional round of tax cuts just for the middle class, they are going to have a hard time spinning this as “tax cuts for the wealthy.”

The Democrats running for office likely will have no choice but to bite the bullet and agree with Trump’s proposed tax cut for the middle class.

Voters on the far left, however, are having a hard time accepting Trump’s proposal.

I almost feel bad for Democrats who have resorted to coping mechanisms like denial to comfort themselves.

It’s not just the left who will feel pressure after Trump’s proposal. The Republican establishment, which has had a shaky relationship with Trump at times, will face the ire of middle-class voters if they don’t get behind the tax cut proposal.

Judging by the uproarious applause coming from the crowd at Trump’s rally with Cruz, middle-class families welcome tax cuts.

Trump’s proposal is a game-changing move that will help secure the support of middle-class families.
