Donald Trump spent the better part of last year touting his newly passed tax reform. He, along with the help of his money-grubbing GOP constituents lied to the American people, and told them this new tax bill would greatly benefit the middle class citizens of this country. But, the reality is, it does the exact opposite. While it increases the already massive debt facing this nation, it makes the insanely rich even more wealthy than they’ve ever been before. To say this piece of legislation was criminal would be a major understatement.
As soon as it passed, millions of Americans were outraged. We weren’t going to sit back and watch this notoriously greedy piece of sh*t take our hard-earned money. No f**king way, man. And we weren’t the only ones who were feeling such outrage. Many members of Congress were experiencing similar bouts of frustration.
In an official statement on the matter, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that, “We believe it is illegal, and we will challenge it in court as unconstitutional.” And he proceeded to call this particular piece of financial legislation, “the first federal double taxation in history, violative of states’ rights and the principle of equal protection.”
The respected Democratic lawmaker from N.Y. continued onward with his statement, adding, “Washington’s tax plan now uses New York and California as piggy banks to finance tax cuts for Republican states.” Governor Cuomo concluded his statement by saying, “It is complicated, it is difficult, but it is clear that we must protect New York taxpayers from this [federal] assault.”
We can only hope that more politicians follow suit and take legal action against this greedy administration.
