Forbes Outlines the Consequences of Delaying Tax Cuts… and They’re Drastic

The two-time GOP presidential candidate Steve Forbes says there will be consequences if Trump and the House don’t get things rolling with a pro-growth agenda. Do you think Forbes needs to take a chill pill and wait just a bit longer? Or does he have a point?

“If they botch this thing on taxes,” Republicans could lose control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections, Forbes warned, putting Trump in the tough spot of having to work with Democrats who have not been shy at showing their disdain for the president.

“I think [Trump] realizes if this economy doesn’t grow, his presidency is finished, would be seen as a failure,” the chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media said on “Squawk Box.” “That’s why I think he needs to move fast on the tax cuts, get things moving.”

Forbes said Trump has gone after the low hanging fruit of bracing companies to move manufacturing back to the U.S. and signing executive orders to get the ball rolling on reversing Obama administration regulations in energy and banking.
