The AZ Daily Star, as predicted, has sided with their Democrat cohorts in opposing the Tax reform plan currently being voted on in the Senate. They say that big corporations would get rich by the reduction in corporate taxes from 35% to 20%, and those cuts would be permanent, but that the tax cuts for the middle class would expire in 10 years. Well, the "Star Opinion" conveniently left out that it is because the 2018 budget reconciliation process will only allow a tax bill to pass the Senate with a simply majority, rather than the standard 60 votes, but only if that bill does not provide for more than $1.5 trillion in tax cuts over the next ten years. The tax plan also reduces rates for small businesses. And, reducing the corporate rate to be aligned with other nations, i.e., in Europe, will create economic growth.
