As we rev up for the 2020 election, remember: for the GOP elite, it’s all about me, not thee. I call it the TAFF Doctrine:
Tax cuts for me, but not for thee. (So the Trump tax “reform” benefiting business owners like him long term.)
Free health care for me, but not for thee. (So Mitch McConnell.)
Regarding the last point, it’s true that the biggest threats to free speech come from the left. Liberals are in fact the worst offenders of “me but not thee” when it comes to the First Amendment. But Trump has given leftists a sure run for their money.
