The President and the Senator tangle over taxes

Even on Christmas, Bernie Sanders didn’t take a break from lashing Donald Trump over a massive new tax bill.

The President and his allies have characterised the sweeping overhaul as an economic rejuvenator, saying steep cuts in the corporate tax rate will invigorate the economy.

But Mr Sanders and other Democrats argue that it will starve the government of funding for needed programmes, a point the Vermont Senator elaborated upon in a tweet listing various initiatives the $1.5tn could pay for.

Among the programmes Mr Sanders listed were repairing infrastructure — a goal Mr Trump has embraced but not yet acted upon — Mr Sanders’ cherished goal of providing tuition-free college and a children’s health insurance program whose funding expired months ago.
