Damian Palettea – The Washington Post:
President Trump and a top adviser on Wednesday pushed back plans to overhaul the tax code, saying they wanted to prioritize first a renewed effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
The comments from Trump and Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney mark a sharp reversal from the administration’s approach just a few weeks ago. After they were dealt a stinging defeat when conservative Republicans refused to vote for a GOP health-care plan, Trump angrily said he was pivoting to tax reform and has been peppering his top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, for details of their tax timeline ever since.
Say it with me … “they don’t know what they’re doing.”
Kidding aside, Mr. Trump has been lashed by opposition to “repeal and replacement” of the Affordable Care Act, some by his own base who voted for him not realizing that they 1. have an ACA health insurance policy, and 2. that the Affordable Care Act, the ACA, and Obamacare are all the same thing and they stood to L-O-S-E; lashed by tax scolds who wanted taxes cut despite ours being the lowest income tax rate among western nations; and lashed again by his true base, the very wealthy whose taxes were raised significantly to pay for – you know it – the Affordable Care Act.
At least we know who Trump’s masters are. Now, about those Russians …
