Toon: Trump tax bill and the middle class

Cartoon by Toles for the Washington Post.

Unless you are an antique train buff, you may not get that the car the engineer is shoveling from is the coal tender, from which coal was shoveled into the firebox of the locomotive to generate the steam that drove the wheels.

It's a pretty close fit to what Trump and the GOP Congress think of the middle class.

Note especially that while the rich and the corporations get permanent tax cuts under the tax bill, the rest of us suckers will find any tax cut disappears in 2025.

Welcome to Trumpworld!
