The tax reform of the Republicans is a blow against the welfare state. It strikes low-income persons and was prepared in the 1970s. $5 trillion is given to households with over a million dollars income! Tax cuts for corporations and the super-rich are paid for with an additional $1.5 trillion in deficits!

The tax reform is profitable for Donald Trump but could cost the Republicans a re-election. The character of the tax heist (NY Times) can be understood with the help of the history of the Republican tax-cutting obsession. Public policy is different than sadism, greed and chaos.
