In a move that may come as a shock to liberals, President Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon is reportedly pushing for a tax increase on the very wealthiest Americans.

But wait- CNN, MSNBC and the rest of those Obama loving liberal hacks including Democrat politicians insist that Trump wants to strip healthcare away from millions so the rich people will get a tax break!

As it sits now, those who are in the top tax bracket are already taxed at a whopping 39.6 percent.

So what is Bannon pushing for and why?

A Trump administration source told Fox News that Bannon wants “the top tax bracket to have a 4 in front of it.” As in 40 percent +.

The source said Bannon wants higher taxes on the wealthiest earners in order to give a bigger tax break for the middle class and investments.

Axios first reported on Bannon’s push, noting the plan would run contrary to Republican orthodoxy but potentially represents the kind of populist philosophy on which Trump campaigned.

On the record, the White House pushed back on the Bannon report.

“The report is not an accurate representation of Steve’s thinking,” Press Secretary Sean Spicer told Fox News.

But the administration source made clear Bannon is pushing for a change in the approach to tax reform.

The tax reform talks publicly have taken a backseat to Senate negotiations over a new health care overhaul – which are expected to extend through the July 4th recess.

Axios reported that economic adviser Gary Cohn and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are anxious to get a tax deal done and claimed Cohn has told associates that tax reform will never happen if officials don’t hammer it out this year.

You won’t hear about this from the liberal media- they’re too busy talking about Trump’s tweets and, of course- RUSSIA!

God Bless.
