67. But they would get so much more in return by way of free college tuition and free healthcare...

 



If you don't go to college because you don't want to or because you have to work to support your parents etc., you miss out!

If you already get subsidized health insurance and pay virtually nothing because you are poor or near poor, you miss out!

And the people in the middle class who are helping family members still get hit with the tax increase although that money may very well have gone to that help.

Just the sound of this tax burden, no matter what might happen to the projected economy will drive people to the GOP. And if we withdraw from the international economy while this is going on, the US consumer will be taking triple whammy. Nothing happens in a vacuum. And the economists who have supported this plan are doing so ASSUMING a 5% growth rate that absolutely will not happen if we foul up our moves on trade.
