Naturally they want to suck up to the teachers, as it’s they and their unions who keep Democrats in power. Congressional Democrats want to give a big salary bump to teachers and pay for it by canceling the tax cut for the nation’s top 1 percent of earners.
Of course this whole idea is the brainstorm of Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, whom on Tuesday are expected to propose giving states and school districts $50 billion over a decade for teacher raises and recruitment.
That’s just the Democrat way, tax and spend. When the money runs out, raise taxes even more. And note, all this money nearly always goes to liberal groups or causes.
The Democrats’ plan is an election-year slam at the tax cuts passed by the Republican-controlled Congress and signed into law by President Donald Trump. Democrats say the cuts are a windfall for the wealthy at the expense of other Americans. Teachers have been rallying for pay raises this year, particularly in states where they’re prevented from unionizing.
Republicans defending their congressional majorities are certain to oppose any tax cut rollback.
Remember folks to vote these people out of office come November, as Democrats want to undo all the good that Trump has done in his first year of office.
