One of the great canards of American politics these days is that the “struggling” middle class needs and wants a tax cut. It doesn’t. What it needs and wants after years of tax and spending cuts is more and better government services for the taxes it already pays.
"The Middle Class Doesn't Want a Tax Cut. It Wants Better Government." is from the September 27, 2017 Perspective section of The Washington Post. It was written by Steven Pearlstein and narrated by Sam Scholl.
