President Donald Trump is arguing that the most effective public policy answer to hurricanes is to cut taxes for the very wealthy.
The President said that Congress must accelerate 'tax reform' (code for tax cuts for the very wealthy) because of all of the destruction brought on by natural disasters.
“We will discussing our plan for dramatic tax cuts and tax reform. And I think now with what’s happened with the hurricane, I’m going to ask for a speed-up. I wanted a speed-up anyway but now we need it even more so.”
