House GOP tax plan more wildly successful at screwing the middle class than we thought possible

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/11/7/1713501/-House-GOP-tax-plan-more-wildly-successful-at-screwing-the-middle-class-than-we-thought-possible

there has been some time to analyze Trumps tax "cuts"
bad BAD news for the average person

"By 2026, 45 percent of middle-class families would pay more than what they would under the existing tax system."

SUCKERS !!!

The Palm Beach Post reported Friday that Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., won the permission after first applying for the H-2B visas in July. The request was originally filed during Trump’s “Made In America” week at the White House.

I can scream all I like about how inhuman that is, so could anyone of us "social justice warriors", but the Trumpetts are not going to hear that.  They appear to hold dear the principles of "I'm alright Jack", racism and "show me the money"  to the exclusion of all else.  So perhaps this argument will strike a chord:

The potato famine sparked the Irish rebellion.
The Bloody Sunday Massacre sparked the IRA membership of many people including Martin McGuinness
Treating people unfairly makes them angry, you bloody stupid idiots!!!

Do you think this little girl has no relatives; no one who loves or cares for her?  The terrorists you fear so desperately are made this way, they do not randomly appear in the form of innocents seeking help.  They are driven to their deeds of horror by acts of brutality just like this.  People grow old and eventually die, but societies remember indefinitely.  That is why my examples are Irish ones - like me.  That cultural memory means that the ramifications of this act of callous stupidity will reverberate long after the orange tyrant is gone.

It would be nice if people stopped this sort of thing because of their conscience; failing that, if you have none, stop and think of the backlash.

Chomsky: Trump's #1 Goal as President


https://www.alternet.org/chomsky-trumps-1-goal-president

. There, out of the spotlight, the most savage fringe of the Republican Party is carefully advancing policies designed to enrich their true constituency: the Constituency of private power and wealth, “the masters of mankind,” to borrow Adam Smith’s phrase.

These policies will harm the irrelevant general population and devastate future generations, but that’s of little concern to the Republicans. They’ve been trying to push through similarly destructive legislation for years. Paul Ryan, for example, has long been advertising his ideal of virtually eliminating the federal government, apart from service to the Constituency -- though in the past he’s wrapped his proposals in spreadsheets so they would look wonkish to commentators. Now, while attention is focused on Trump’s latest mad doings, the Ryan gang and the executive branch are ramming through legislation and orders that undermine workers’ rights, cripple consumer protections, and severely harm rural communities. They seek to devastate health programs, revoking the taxes that pay for them in order to further enrich their Constituency, and to eviscerate the Dodd-Frank Act, which imposed some much-needed constraints on the predatory financial system that grew during the neoliberal period.

That’s just a sample of how the wrecking ball is being wielded by the newly empowered Republican Party.



Chomsky nails it
maybe it is better that the huge majority of AMuRIkAns don't see what the future holds for them and their children

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE AMERICA ?
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE ???

What is the point of getting $40 back if your health insurance goes up by $4,000?

Oh yes!  I forgot.  To keep the freeloaders from getting healthcare.

more on Trumps "best ever" tax cut for the middle class

According to estimates by the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, households with children earning less than $75,000 would get just a $20 average tax cut in 2027 from the GOP tax framework released in late September, compared to a $200,000 tax cut for households with children earning $1 million or more.  And when Congress turns its attention to paying for those tax cuts, low- and middle-income families would lose far more in health care, food and housing assistance, and educational services that they need to thrive now and in the future.

I've got one word for you

SUCKERS

don't spend that whole twenty in one place now ya hearLOL

The Rethughs in my state pulled the same crap
they cut the income taxes but raised DOZENS of other taxes
the net result was a family of 4 with an income of  $40,000
got a whole $40 dollars back
while the richest families in the state got?
well you know the story by now

SUCKERS

Get ready for the Republican push for 'small business' tax cuts for the 1 percent

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/10/17/1707561/-Get-ready-for-the-Republican-push-for-small-business-tax-cuts-for-the-one-percent

Trumps tax cut proposals have been out long enough for some analysis to be done on them

Get ready to hear a lot about “small business” as Republicans try to sell their tax plan. Who doesn’t like small business? It’s your next-door neighbor, it’s the corner store that

bails you out when you just need one thing and don't want to go all the way to the big store, it’s the coffee shop where they know your name, it’s the site you turn to for news, activism, and community. Right? 

Yeah, not so much. Sure, those are all small businesses, but they’re not the ones who’d benefit most (or even at all) from Republican plans for a “small business” tax cut. Republicans want a 25 percent tax rate for “pass-through” businesses, where the business pays no taxes because all of the profits pass through to the owners, who pay regular income taxes.  And, according to the Economic Policy Institute:

In fact, 49 percent of all pass-through income goes to just the top 1 percent of households. This makes pass-through income one of the most concentrated-at-the-top income categories in the entire economy. [...]

For example, take a married couple whose small restaurant made them $150,000 in net profits. They will not be helped by this proposal because they’re already paying a 25 percent marginal income tax rate. 86 percent of households with pass-through income already pay 25 percent or less, so will see nothing from this Republican tax plan. The people this pass-through loophole helps wealthy people like President Trump, whose top tax rate on income from more than 500 pass-through businesses would fall from 39.6 to 25 percent.

So when you hear that Republican “small business” refrain, always ask which kind of small business they mean. Your plumber or neighborhood restaurant? Or Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner?


not looking good

just more trickle down peeing on your leg and trying to tell you it is raining

One former official even speculated that Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis have discussed what they would do in the event Trump ordered a nuclear first strike. “Would they tackle him?” the person said.


(Pretty damn scary!  I figured that this conversation has been had amongst the generals (McMaster, Kelley and Mattis).  


When Nixon started to crack up, they had to take steps to defuse his attempts to launch nuclear bombers.  


Hopefully, this presidency won't last much longer, but anything can happen.

Results be damned, Betsy DeVos loves her some online charter schools

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/10/9/1705462/-Results-be-damned-Betsy-DeVos-loves-her-some-online-charter-schools

Betsy DeVos is a big fan—huge fan—of online charter schools, from investing in a virtual charter company in the past to pushing them in her current role as Donald Trump’s education secretary. Because to DeVos, “choice” is the top goal of the education system, rather than, you know, education:

… in Pennsylvania, an early adopter where more than 30,000 kids log into virtual charter schools from home most days, the graduation rate is a dismal 48 percent. Not one virtual charter school meets the state’s “passing” benchmark.

do people realize what Trump is doing to this country ???
happy NOW ???
