The Sun's tax reform hypocrisy

The Tax Policy Center claims the tax cuts President Donald Trump outlined would increase the deficit by $7.2 trillion over the first decade, and The Sun seems to be appalled by that number (“How about Trump-Schumer-Pelosi tax reform?” Sept. 13)! Where was The Sun's outrage when President Barack Obama increased the deficit by over $9 trillion in just eight years? Wow, the hypocrisy of The Sun and the left leaves me speechless.

Oh, and by the way, The Sun never fails to mention the never-ending demands of the Democrats, as if they matter. They have no power unless the Republicans say so since they lost the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives in the last election, or did you forget that little tidbit?
