If you don't understand the Democrats' version of tax cuts (and you are not alone), here's an example:

50,000 people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out and a refund was due. The team was about to send out refunds when the Democrats stopped them and suggested that they send out refund amounts based on the Democrats interpretation of fairness. After all,
if the refunds were made based on the price each person paid for the tickets, most of the money would go to the richest people.

The Democrats' plan says:
People in the $10 seats will get back $15, because they have less money to spend.
People in the $15 seats will get back $15, because that's only fair.
People in the $25 seats will get back $1, because they already make a lot of money and don't need a refund.
People in the $50 luxury seats will have to pay nother $50, because they have way too much to spend.
The people driving by the stadium who couldn't afford to watch the game will get $10 each, even though they didn't pay anything in, because they need the most help.

Now do you understand?
