Here's my own "Mnuchin Principle" : will somebody please punch him in the face?

Want to see some smirks? Try this:

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/05/01/treasury-secretary-mnuchin-says-trump-tax-plan-will-eliminate-all-deductions-except-mortgage-interest-and-charitable-giving.html

We're supposed to simply TRUST that shaving 15% off the highest tax bracket, eliminating AMT, eliminating estate taxes, etc., won't benefit the highly wealthy? He's not making any sense, anyway. Eliminate all deductions except mortgage interest and charitable giving? REALLY? Does that include business deductions like payroll expenses, depreciation, travel expenses, what, what, what? What the hell does he even MEAN?

1. Yeah, acts of gratuitous violence are just what Democrats really stand for.

C'mon, we're better than this.

2. Many churches do this as well.

It can be difficult to realize visceral reaction and reaction when one reads everything as literal.
