When rich people give themselves and their companies huge tax cuts that money has to come from elsewhere, like the middle class.

This isn't even that surprising given that most non wonk economists kept trying to explain this is what the proposed (at the time) tax plan would do. The numbers don't lie, politicians though...

Lies, damned lies and statistics. Numbers are used to lie to us all the time. “Factoids” like the US tax rate being ‘12 times higher’ for a married couple with one income and two kids may be true, but is specious when presented out of context.

In general, comparing taxes and other expenses in the US to those in Canada is a game for fools, which makes it a perfect subject for the agenda-driven journalism of the H.P. :smt045
