The Boston Herald has endorsed President Trump’s reelection, citing Biden’s plans to raise corporate tax rates and platforms that are a “potluck of agendas pushed by far-left party members such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez”
In the new piece, the editorial staff writes “Biden wants to increase the corporate tax rate. The Hill cited an economic study by Kevin Hassett and Aparna Mathur which concluded that corporate tax hikes lead to a substantial decrease in wages and spending, and spurred businesses to move out of the country. That’s not what we need, especially as a report by Yelp found that 60% of businesses around the U.S. that shut down due to the coronavirus will remain closed forever.”
They later add “most disconcerting is that Biden’s platform is a potluck of agendas pushed by far-left party members such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Sanders and Biden hashed out a Progressive Unity Platform this summer, and AOC joined other progressive lawmakers in telling Biden who he shouldn’t have in his Cabinet.”
In contrast, the Herald writes points to Trump’s success with the stock market and trade negotiations.
They write “the Dow hovered around 19,000 when Trump was first elected — last year it hit above 26,000 — good news for everyone with a 401(k). Trump didn’t spend his way to a robust economy — he cut regulations and got tougher with trade negotiations. He’s against defunding police, for holding China accountable for COVID-19 negligence and putting America first on trade, defense, the courts and, again, the economy.”
“He’s what America needs right now, decisive action to get us back to pre-pandemic strength — not an unfeasible spending spree in the name of a progressive utopia,” the piece concludes.
