Are you sure the "opportunity zones" part of the Trump tax plan is really helping the poor and the poor with business opportunities?

It is the latest example of the benefits of the Republican tax package flowing disproportionately to the richest of the rich. Even a tax break that was supposed to aid poor communities — an initiative called “opportunity zones” — is being used in part to finance high-end developments in affluent neighborhoods, at times benefiting those with ties to the Trump administration.

    It's the norm, not the exception for a GOP program to be a mechanism for funneling the tax dollars from our public treasury into the private pockets of the already wealth. If it happened in an African nations, Our Corporate Media would be telling us "President's Cronies Loot National Treasury ... Again."

    Slow down there, Karl Marx...

    Are you actually suggesting that because a tax initiative for the poor might also positively affect wealthier stakeholders that we shouldn't do it?

    If the rich benefits, no one benefits?  Yeah?

    Stupid.  Lolz

    It makes it easier to open business in poor areas. If you think their life is getting better without that happening I got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale cheap.
