Albion--And yet the trump rangers continue to support this lying fool as he pushes us closer and closer to a Third World country.

And like third world countries, only the leaders and those close to the leaders will have the money while all the rest suffer. Good job, trump supporters; you should be very proud that you've helped a Jacksonian-like dictator destroy our country. 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

Lemontop, like jrbush and Reagan before him, claim to be SIMPLIFYING the Federal income tax, but in reality all they've done is to reduce the number of tax brackets and eliminate deductions that the 99% have a chance of using.

 

He wants to abolish the inheritance tax that has helped slow the creation of the Oligarchy and instead cement the power of wealthy families as firmly as the rights of succession kept power in the hands of Royalty (which he thinks he is) for centuries.

 

And like all Republicans before him, Lemontop thinks the way to PAY for these taxscams for the wealthy is to shred the social safety net for the 99%.

 

I'm still wondering how all the bottom 50%ers still support Der Trumper when his policies will guarantee their kids won't get as far as they did, let alone do better. Guess they really don't like their kids or grandkids.

Trump's tax proposal would push US below Greece on inequality index

 

Donald Trump’s tax reform plans would, if enacted, increase the gap between rich and poor Americans and see the US slip below Greece on a new global index of inequality.

 

Making America great again.


Thanks for the post. These facts, and the remedy for pernicious inequality contained in the article, caught my interest. 

 

"In 2012, 43.3% of corporations in the US paid no federal income tax. US employers are required to provide zero days of paid maternity leave, while Sweden offers 480 days. The US federal minimum wage of $7.25 is well below the $10.60 an hour needed for a family of four to stay above the federal poverty line...The report makes clear that inequality in the US could get worse if efforts to reform tax and repeal the Affordable Care Act are successful. If, instead, Trump decided to attack inequality in the US, O’Brien said he would need to create a more progressive tax system that lessens the burden on the poorest people, improve labor laws, and “ensure that investments in healthcare, education and social protection gave all Americans an equal shot at the American dream”.
