Trump/Republicans put more money in the pocket of all working people regardless of salary/wage range thru paying lower tax rates.

Read the budget

Look at the assumptions in the tables covering receipts. it's all there in the GOP budget. No democrat had a hand in it. Taxes on individuals go from $1.6 trillion in 2017 to $2.9 trillion in 2027. These are the GOP estimates of the receipts on taxes it includes all the shiznit you are going on about. It also reflects the well known sunsetting of the cuts on those individual taxes in 2025. Corporations get permanent cuts. Taxes on corporations go from $297 billion to $406 billion. You can do the math right? it's all about who is paying to balance this monster over the next decade. The answer is bigger tax increases for individuals and deep cuts to domestic spending while making sure the wall is funded and military spending reaches record highs. Who pays?

Democrats don't have to get back to the WH and Senate to get higher taxes--already fully baked in to the GOP plan.
