Brett Arends’s ROI: Of course Donald Trump’s tax cuts are in trouble

Wall Street has been betting that Donald Trump will get his big tax cut plan through Congress — which would be supposedly good for stocks and the people who own them.

But those tax cuts were always a long shot — even before the health-care debacle.

The political pundits can jawbone all they want. But the logic is painfully simple:

1. Even with tax rates as they are, the U.S. budget is heavily in deficit and the national debt is predicted to keep spiraling upwards — as the Congressional Budget Office has confirmed.

2. Tax cuts will increase that deficit still further.
