Skunkworks Stinker of the Day: Donald Trump

Donald TrumpRepublican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump insists that his tax cut plan would increase tax revenues, because growth!

“Overall, it’s going to be a tremendous incentive to grow the economy and we’re going to take in the same or more money. And I think we’re going to have something that’s going to be spectacular,” Trump said. “We’re going to grow the economy so much.”

Which would be great. Except, this trickle-down fantasy never, ever works.

That said, it’s not luck Trump’s tax plan is any stupider than any of the other Republican tax plans. So there’s that.
