We all know that Democrats love to spend other people’s money. They recklessly spend it on unnecessary bureaucracies.
They give themselves pay raises, courtesy of the taxpayer. And they dump money into programs like welfare to buy themselves votes in the next election.
At this point, they have zero understanding that the money that comes into Washington is actually from backs of hard-working Americans from all across the country. Liberals literally think that this money belongs to them.
Enter President Donald Trump. As a businessman, he completely understands that every dollar an American earns is important and should not be taken lightly. He also understands that the less money the government has to play with, the better off America is.
In short, Trump understands that the taxpayer can spend their money in a much better manner than the Democrats ever could. So that is why he made sure to take $147 million from Liberals and give it back to Americans in one fell swoop.
From Conservative Tribune:
Because of the tax reform bill President Donald Trump signed into law last year over Democrat opposition, Iowa residents may soon see a reduction in their heating and cooling bills.
By lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent, the new tax law is saving businesses of all stripes millions of dollars, and according to the The Des Moines Register, utility companies in Iowa intend to share their savings with their customers by either lowering rates or providing a “tax rider.”
MidAmerican Energy is expected to share savings of between $90.8 million and $112.3 million with customers, while Interstate Power & Light is looking to share savings of between $18.6 million and $19.6 million.
“Alliant’s gas customers could have between $500,000 and $3.7 million returned to them,” the Register’s report continued. “Black Hills Energy would return $1.6 million to its gas customers, the only service it provides in Iowa. And Iowa-American Water Co., which provides service in eastern Iowa, would provide $1.5 million and $1.8 million to customers.”
Combined, this reportedly comes out to a potential $147 million in savings.
As an Iowan myself, it is an encouragement to see such money coming back into the hands of the taxpayer. Despite a Republican Governor, House, and Senate, Iowa has experienced a ridiculous increase in their taxes over the past few years. And there are few assurances that things are about to get any better.
Here is hoping that President Trump’s decision to send $147 million to Iowa will be a glowing example for its leaders to do the same.
It is time to reward the worker, not the politician.
