Let's start with taxes and social security.
Trump has promised to lower taxes and to keep social security completely untouched.
According to The Center for Poverty Research, around 15 percent of Americans live in poverty in the U.S., equating to about 48 million Americans.
Add on the middle to lower middle class (who aren't officially in poverty but still need to budget for the month), and you have a lot of people. Of those people, many of them voted for Trump because he will "Make 'Merica Great Again."
Now, here comes the painful part.
Under Trump's tax proposals, according to Politifact, "the top 0.1 percent would get more tax relief than the bottom 60 percent of taxpayers combined."
Now, if the rich are giving less money to the government, this means the federal deficit is projected to balloon by at least $10 trillion over the next decade, according to Politifact. So if the government is a lot poorer, guess who suffers. Answer: The people who aren't rich.
Also, sure, they get a tax break too. But just re-read that statistic. The tax break isn't going to be that big for you unless you're super rich. So, we now have a government who has a lot less money. How then can social security remain untouched? So often this is the area that is the first place governments look to cut when dealing with deficits.
Also, Trump supporters have been very supportive of regulation to safeguard their ways of life. They want to do away with Dodd-Frank? Hang on *scratches head* this is the act that was put in place in 2010 to regulate big banks, so we wouldn't face another financial crisis remember?
I could have sworn we just went through years of everyone yelling (especially those not working in banking) that we need to regulate banks, and that giving bankers too much control was bad. OK, so now we want bankers to have more control. Sorry, my mistake.
