Letter: Trump will not help middle-class families

Trump will not help middle-class families

Greed in America is destroying this country. The Electoral College just elected the greediest person in America to be our president. Although Donald Trump and his mouthpieces say that he won the election in a landslide, Trump lost the popular vote by more than 2.8 million votes.

Trump has benefited from $885 million in tax breaks from the state of New York since 1980. He also boasts that he did not pay federal taxes for 18 years.

I find it hard to believe the middle-class folks who work and pay taxes voted for the likes of Trump. People like him are the very reason the middle class is struggling. The very wealthy and large corporations like General Electric, which hasn’t paid federal taxes in over a decade, will now have Trump to give them even more tax breaks.

If the wealthy and large corporations paid their fair share of taxes, just maybe Social Security and Medicare would have enough money to stay solvent for many years to come.
