The Republican National Committee took Tax Day as an opportunity to boast about the GOP tax law’s benefits to “hardworking Americans” on Monday, but critics on Twitter weren’t having it.

 

The GOP tweet didn’t mention that corporations — who saw their tax rate slashed from 35 to 21% — and the top richest 1% of the population are the law’s biggest beneficiaries. The tax law also contributed to the country’s $22 trillion debt, which is $2 trillion higher than when Trump took office and the largest in U.S. history.

 

The law is turning into a political headache for the Republican Party even as Trump traveled to Minnesota on Monday to whip up enthusiasm for what he called “historic tax relief.” Only 18 percent of Americans believe they paid less in taxes the first year of Trump’s law, according to a poll by The Hill released Monday.

 

The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center predicted last year that about 65 percent of Americans would benefit from the tax law, with an average cut of $1,260. Yet it predicted that only 27 percent of individuals in the lowest income quintile would get any benefit.

 

For many, tax savings this year are so modest that they’re barely noticeable. Former GOP House Majority Leader Paul Ryan bragged last year about a school secretary whose paycheck was up $1.50 a week thanks to the tax law.

 

The benefits are also uneven. Many homeowners in high-tax states with expensive property owe more taxes than ever because real estate tax deductions are now capped at $10,000

 

Many people responded to the GOP Tax Day tweet by saying they’d written their first-ever checks to the IRS. Others slammed the inequity of the law’s benefits.

Tax cuts cut taxes based on earnings. Obviously everyone will not get the same dollar amount cut. And as to "27 percent of individuals in the lowest income quintile would get any benefit" - the bottom 47% pays NO tax, how do you cut that???

 

As to companies - they pay no taxes, the consumer does

No, it was "just some people did something".

For Some Reason Muslims who cause Mass Murder are Terrorists - but the White Guys Who Perpetrate Mass Murder are different - what is the Difference?

 

Please Explain

 

 


Fine, if it makes you happy, we can look at any killing (mass or individual) as "somebody did something".


Ahh - that must mean you cannot explain, and are posting instead a childish and meaningless three words...

Well, he’s right about the reagan tax cuts!

And this supports devos on private school funding? We may want to get another site’s view of this budget, like the National Association of Educators or School Teachers. 

If trump and devos are involved, it’s not good for schools or students!

What is your point in the spending graph? It only goes up to 2016. What about the last three years with trump and devos in charge. Especially with the proposed cuts by them for the Dept of Education. 

 

Support of lies and hatred is immoral


Well, as you know we have a poster who blames everything on the Reagan tax cuts. but, you're right - here's an update -

This is really disturbing. 


This kind of Stuff coming from a American President is just so embarrassing regardless of your politics or your personal reaction to what Ilhan Omar said..................

 

As a Military Veteran and someone who realizes the back woods of Kentucky and the Corn Fields of Ohio are not the only places that exist on this planet

 

People - Good Decent Human Beings - See This Stuff All Over The World and There is Only one message it sends

 

Americans Elected this Guy so they must support all this Hatred he is allowed to Spew unchecked

 

Make no Mistake - This is Not Patriotism - This is HATRED of anyone who Doesn't Look and Talk Like Trump - This is White Supremacy - That is the Message to everyone else in the World

 

Africans - Muslim - Hispanic - Even Jews - if you're not counting Trumps Money For him or making Trump Money - your just another Tool in his White Supremacist Belt

 

He has No Problem Hiring Illegal Immigrants - Because he knows Illegal Immigrant Employees Have Even More Reason To Be Loyal to Him

 

Trump is Single-handedly destroying the US Constitution - just look at all the - Hey Whataboutism in play on this Forum Daily

 

Every President from now on will try to become King - the only thing that can Stop Him is Term Limits and if a President can Break the Law in Plain View - don;t think for a Minute the people in Congress aren't doing the same thing and making money of their corruption just like Trump

 

Regardless of anything else - even if you could stomach the White Supremacy - how does any American especially this month.........

 

Sit back and watch Trump sell Access to the US Presidency in Plain View at Mar A Lago - at Trump Hotel in Washington & then Cheat on his Taxes and now he's using the IRS as a Weapon to hide it all while he's Breaking the Law - where are the Whistleblowers in the IRS?

 

I just don't get it
