The problem with the Republican tax cut plan isn't the desire for cuts, per se; it's where the Republicans are aiming them.

The real problem with the GOP's proposed tax cuts is who benefits: Cutting the tax rate on corporate profits showers money on wealthy shareholders. Aligning the 'pass through' tax rate with a lower corporate rate will allow wealthy Americans to rejigger their tax filings, paying lower rates than their less fortunate fellow citizens. While Republicans want to lower income tax rates across the board, the bulk of the benefits from their plans go to Americans pulling down six-figure salaries or more. Increasing the standard deduction is really the only part of this plan that has any sort of populist tilt.

Frankly, a lot of this probably boils down to the GOP's loyalty to their wealthy donor class.
