The Broad Support for Taxing the Wealthy 20.6.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Summer 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  The 2018 elections in November could be as important to Democrats as the anti-Obamacare 2010 wave election that shaped American politics for almost a decade was to Republicans—if Democrats don’t let ’em hide from their tax scam for the rich. And we do not yet know whether Democrats will get it right. As Democrats allowed issues of health care, Medicare, Medicaid, and the tax cuts to move to the sidelines, the national generic vote has narrowed and Trump’s approval rating has crept up. Democrats have deferred to the Republicans on the economy, even though it remains the simplest, most important determinant of the off-year congressional vote, and even though the Democratic base and swing voters are deeply suspicious of what Trump and the congressional Republicans are doing passing a tax cut for the rich. Am I really recommending that we run in 2018 on raisingtaxes? Yes. We will raise taxes on the rich. Count ...

The Emblem of This Era 20.6.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Andrew Harnik President Donald Trump is silhouetted in a car on his arrival at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam.  This article appears in the Summer 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  This is the first time in nearly 30 years of publication that The American Prospecthas devoted an entire issue of the magazine to a single topic. We are doing so because the 2017 Tax Act so perfectly displays so much of what is rotten and false about this period of Republican rule, and sets up an epic debate about what the two parties stand for. Tax cuts are invariably political winners, or so the Republicans thought. But this one is so grotesque that it is already backfiring. Whether it truly blows up on the right, and becomes a major political liability this fall, depends in large part on how skilled Democrats and commentators are at narrating all that is wrong with it. The law makes clear that the deep corruption in this era emanates not just from Trump personally. He would ...

Sharing the Tech Wealth 14.5.2018 American Prospect
This article appears in the Spring 2018 issue of The American Prospect magazine. Subscribe here .  When the Democratic “blue wall” stretching from Wisconsin through Michigan and Ohio to Pennsylvania fell on November 7, 2016, its breach reflected a growing socioeconomic gulf between the prosperous coastal states and depressed non-metro America. The vast majority of economic growth since 2008 has flowed to the coasts, while the Midwest and rural America have seen spikes in deaths of despair, divorce, an opiate crisis, and a moribund economy. It wasn’t always like this. Once upon a time, from roughly 1880 to 1980—an era Trump’s white supporters may have in mind when they demand America be Made Great Again—incomes of different regions more nearly converged. Much of U.S. manufacturing and its supply chain was based in the Midwest. Thanks to unionization, a good deal of basic industry paid decent wages. Meanwhile, other industries such as textiles and apparel migrated from New England to the Southeast, raising ...
