Here's another reality, and that is the huge double standard of Trump Lovers. If our president was Obama, and a tax bill passed which added $1.5 - $2 Trillion to our deficit, Trump Lovers would be flooding this site with hundreds of new posts complaining about adding to our national debt.

 

But when it's their idol and hero in the White House, they have no standards.


More mind reading and childish "idol" and "hero" nosense. But - how do those not paying taxes get a tax cut??

Before you write about something learn about it. If you watch Trumps meeting which was on TV you will hear him say we should arm 10%, 20% or 40% of the Teachers.So stop making things up to suit what wrong statement you want to make. That is a trait of the far right, and is due in part to their inability to think for themselves.

Here's the reality of the Trumpscam for households:

The top 5% will see a cut of 3.1% or an average of $13,480

 

The top 20% will get a 2.2% cut, avg $7,640

 

The middle 20% (income $49K-86K) get 1.4% for $930 each

 

The bottom 20% get 0.4% or $60 each.

 

All those increases will end in 10 years.

 

The ones running the Corporations will get to share $460Billion this year and $740Billion NEXT year and  that will go on FOREVER.


How do those last two get a tax cut since they do not pay taxes??

Explain how you have a tax cut when you are adding to the National Debt, and that has to be paid off. What you have is asking others to pay what you get back now later.

Now Trump wants to have a new program in schools where up to 40% of teachers carry guns, and for that they would get a bonus. Well using the 40% figure, and $1,000 bonus that comes to well over 1 Billion per year in new expenses the Federal Govt. would pick up. Yes Trump said the Feds would pay for that. Now explain how that allows a tax cut.


As part of the Hillary/Obama cult, you should know that the tax decrease for 90% of Americans (including the Obama/Hillary cult) IS taking place. While that will cause a short term deficit of $1.5 trillion, it should take care of itself over the long term with more employment (which means more money into the treasury) and don't forget those corporate tax cuts which will bring businesses back to the U.S. creating more taxes (and employment).

 

Also, keep in mind that Obama accumulated $1.25 trillion in debt for each of his eight years.


No obama cleared the Bush recession so you are wrong again. Explain how you can have a tax cut when it increases the countries debt.

The bottom 47% pay no federal income tax right now. You can't get a tax cut when you currently pay no tax!

Many Democrats are complaining that they didn`t see an increase in their pay so far this year. Perhaps it is because the payroll dept in many companies haven`t made the adjustment in the withholding tax. The cut will be reflected when this happens or will result in a bigger refund at the end of 2018 tax year. I personally ask my pension plan not to change my withholding so I don`t owe at the end of the year and might even get a refund.It is difficult right now because SS,Ira`s and 401k`s ,capital gains etc.will have to figure in the total income.
