Stephen King Slaps the Hell out of Trump’s Tax Plan: He ‘couldn’t give a sh*t’ about working class


Best-selling author and long-standing Trump critic, Stephen King, has attacked President Trump’s tax reform plan. King says the president has no concern for the working man.

King argued that argued that the tax plan which the Trump administration  unveiled on Wednesday effectively rewards the wealthiest Americans while it neglects poor Americans.

At an event in Indiana, the president said our current tax scheme is a relic and a “colossal barrier” which is preventing an American comeback. Donald Trump framed his plans to overhaul America’s tax code as a a “one-in-a-generation” opportunity.

King took to Twitter to give his feedback on Trump’s tax reform vision.


In addition to dropping the federal estate tax, which will benefit this president’s family directly — while doing absolutely nothing to help the poor —  Trump’s plan also seeks to drop the corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to 20 per cent.

The plan is broad on hype but scant on details. At this time, we know it proposes individual tax rates of 12 per cent, 25 per cent and 35 per cent respectively. There is also supposed to be a “surcharge” on the very wealthy, which seems both dubious and off-brand for Trump. We have no real information on what the average blue-collar or middle-class family might gain by this tax reform, if anything.
