Who's gonna pay 4 Trump tax cuts?. . . *PIC*

(Politico.com) Rand Paul: "If you lower the taxes on the rich and lower the taxes on the poor and then say, ĎOh itís going to be revenue neutral,í weíve got to raise somebodyís taxes to pay for it."
. . ."Senator Rand Paul will continue to advocate for a tax cut for all. He is not trying to dictate exact policy. There is a wide variety of scenarios that he would support, but raising taxes on the middle class should be a non-starter," said Sergio Gor, a spokesman for Paul.
. . .Republicans have yet to write a bill, but GOP leaders and the White House have presented a framework to lower corporate taxes, expand the standard deduction and restructure income tax brackets. Paul has repeatedly cited a non-partisan Tax Policy Center analysis that found some in the middle class would pay more in taxes under the plan.
. . .Paulís legislative eccentricities have been magnified by the GOPís narrow majority even as the party controls all of Washington. Just three GOP senators can stop tax reform, just as they did on health care. And thereís already worry among Republicans that McCain, Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and a handful of other senators could vote against the nascent tax plan.
