Who is benefitting the most from the Republican tax law? Big banks and the most well-off and well-connected Americans, not average hardworking families.

Jason from Delaware says: “The tax cuts recently passed by Congress and signed by President Trump don't help me at all. In fact, my middle class taxes are going up as a result of the huge tax cut windfall Trump gave to the top 1 percent of earners.”

The was never about anything except lining the pockets of big corporations and the top 1%. It has not created jobs as promised by Trump and has led to falling wages, stock buybacks, and rampant offshoring.

Today at a Joint Select Committee on Pensions hearing in Ohio heard from workers & retirees affected by the pension crisis. Rep Neal is finding solutions so Americans who worked hard & followed the rules don’t have the rug pulled out from under them in retirement.

Not only are workers not receiving the $4,000 Republicans promised the tax law would deliver, but due to gas price increases, “for the typical consumer, the increase in monthly spending consumes almost 40% of the tax cut benefit of $78 per month.”

“Once in a while, Donald Trump will remember he promised American voters he would bring down drug prices. But Trump’s actual agenda seems to be little more than a smattering of tweets and a white paper lacking needed details.”

With their tax law, Republicans prioritized the well-off and well-connected, not average working families. Democrats believe tax policy should be fair and expand opportunity for all taxpayers, not just reward people at the top.

“Because many senior executives are paid in company shares, buybacks temporarily boost their pay (as well as other shareholders' portfolios), sometimes at the expense of investments in infrastructure or workers.”

Instead of investing in workers, companies are spending record amounts on stock buybacks. Who benefits from those? Shareholders and top executives.

For example, Republicans promised that every worker would see an additional $4,000 in their paychecks because of the tax law. In reality, this year, “worker pay in the second quarter dropped nearly one percent below its first-quarter level.”
