What price a country?
We’ll see who he will aim for.
The poor, disabled, or sick? Unlikely.
Single mothers? no way!

Almost a definite. Thus guaranteeing a vote or ten,
How he will do it is by using tax breaks.
Except that won’t help 3/4 of the population who are struggling to even earn enough to pay tax. Those who are borderline poor, just receiving benefits, and as a result will lose everything they are getting.
Thus the rich will get richer and it will the poor that will reap the pain.
