poor americans don't fare well under trump's tax cut plan


washington — president donald trump promised americans "the largest tax cut in our country's history." but for low-income households, trump's plan would amount to crumbs.the poorest would get an average tax cut of about $60 a year, according to an analysis by the tax policy center. middle-income families would get about $300 on average."there's no significant benefit for low-income families," said elaine maag, a senior research associate at the tax policy center. "it's important because when low-income families get money they tend to spend it, putting it right back into the economy. high-income families tend to save it."republicans have backed a budget resolution that would enable congress to pass a tax package that could add up to $1.5 trillion to the national debt over the next decade.th
