As tax season drew to a close in April 2019, and Americans all across the country struggled through their newly-convoluted return forms, their paltry or non-existent refunds, their minimum wage, and salary increases, and their resulting financial status, a slowly dawning realization began to take shape.

It was the unpleasant recognition that yes, in fact, they had been conned.

The title of this analysis by Think Progress, reporting on a study just released by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service, really says it all: New study confirms ordinary Americans got fleeced by the Trump tax bill.

And Michael Hiltzik, writing for the Los Angeles Times, explains just what a colossal, shameless rip-off the Republican Party and Donald Trump perpetrated against ordinary Americans, with the passage of their so-called “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” a legislative abomination which the formerly Republican-controlled House of Representatives and a Republican Senate foisted upon all American taxpayers in the dead of night on December 20, 2017.
