President Donald Trump wants congressional Republicans to push through a tax-cut plan that largely benefits extremely wealthy people like himself at the expense of everyone else.

The House of Representatives is set to vote this week on its version of the plan, with Trump calling on Congress to pass a final version by Christmas. Republicans such as Rep. Ted Yoho of Gainesville focus on benefits to lower- and middle-class taxpayers.

The reality is that the plan slashes deductions benefitting the middle class and would allow a tax credit for families to expire after a few years, while making massive tax cuts for corporations and the super-wealthy that would cause the deficit to soar in size.

The measure would add about $1.5 trillion to the deficit over 10 years. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a nonpartisan budget watchdog, estimated that $900 billion of the increase would come from business tax cuts.

While the rest would come from individual tax cuts, they include an estate-tax cut that only benefits the richest 5,000 families in the U.S. Repealing the estate tax would reduce federal revenue by $269 billion over 10 years — more than the budgets of the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Environmental Protection Agency combined, according to a group of 400 millionaires calling themselves Responsible Wealth who wrote a recent letter opposing the proposal.

Trump’s family alone would save more than $1 billion from the estate-tax repeal, a New York Times analysis found. He and other ultra-wealthy individuals would also benefit from a repeal of the alternative minimum tax‚ which would have saved Trump $31 million in 2005, the only year in which even partial tax returns from him are publicly available.

While cuts for the rich would be permanent, the plan would let savings for many middle-class families expire over the next decade. An analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities of the initial House plan found a family of four making $59,000 would get a tax cut of about $1,100 next year, but would see their taxes rise by more than $450 by 2027 as compared to current law.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has pushed for a larger refundable child tax credit to prevent more families from seeing increases but has so far been unsuccessful. Instead, the legislation takes aim at deductions that benefit working-class people and those attending or graduating from college.

The House plan would eliminate a deduction for high medical expenses that largely benefits filers making less than $50,000 a year, according to an AARP analysis. It would also count tuition benefits as taxable income, end a deduction on student-loan interest and eliminate a $250 deduction for teachers to buy school supplies.

The recent release of the Paradise Papers, which showed how corporations and extremely rich individuals hide their wealth in overseas tax havens, showed the need for real tax reform. Republicans should scrap their current tax proposals and the artificial deadline to pass them in favor of a bipartisan approach that focuses on truly benefitting middle-class taxpayers.
