Donald Trump's "Economic Plan" Does Nothing For Middle Class America

Donald Trump made a big deal about unveiling his "economic plan" for America, hoping for a kind of campaign reset as he plummets in the polls.

The problem is, though, none of what he is proposing is visionary or innovative.

We learned "trickle down" economics don't work. Giving big tax cuts to the wealthy with the hopes that the rich will "reinvest" those gains into new employees or higher wages is a fallacy. Doesn't happen.

And eliminating the estate tax does nothing to encourage the economy to grow. It's just a big giveaway to folks like Trump's kids.

Once again Trump is attempting to do a little flim-flam action saying "look what I'll do," when in reality none of this will actually "do" anything.
