Tip to the media: Stop calling Trump's tax changes a "reform"

One of the ways the media is unknowingly assisting the Trump regime is referring to his proposed tax changes as "tax reform." As Merriam Webster puts, it to reform something is "to put or change into an improved form or condition" or "to amend or improve by change of form or removal of faults or abuses" or "to put an end to (an evil) by enforcing or introducing a better method or course of action." None of these can be expected from Trump's proposed tax changes.

This kind of thinking, calling tax cuts reform, are based on the erroneous assumption that cutting taxes for the rich improves economic performance. Just another part of the big lie.
