JCT Estimates: Final GOP Tax Bill Skewed to Top, Hurts Many Low- and Middle-Income Americans


https://www.cbpp.org/research/federal-tax/jct-estimates-final-gop-tax-bill-skewed-to-top-hurts-many-low-and-middle-income


Under the amended bill, in 2025 (when most of its provisions would be in place), high-income households would get the largest tax cuts as a share of after-tax income, on average, while households with incomes below $30,000 would on average face a tax increase. By 2027, when many of its provisions would have expired, those at the top would still get large tax cuts, but every income group below $75,000 would face tax increases, on average. Yet despite raising taxes on millions of middle- and lower-income households, the bill would add $1.5 trillion to deficits over the decade due to its large tax cuts for high-income households and corporations.


isn't ALL the evidence pretty clear at this point???


as I've said

this bill is basically good news for me

I will benefit

but the majority of Americans won't

but being the Social Justice Warrior type I am

I think this bill is absolute CRAP

it is a FRAUD and a FARCE

and ONLY low information voters or the 1% think it is a good idea

You are confusing Congress with the President. These are congressional issues and have nothing to do with President Trump. As usual, Social Justice Warriors are oblivious to reality or facts. They only respond to gut level feelings and accusation is enough without any proof.

Blame where blame is due. It is Congress - and the Democrats who have failed the people to deliver much of any useful law or accomplishments except for the tax break today.

It is the responsibility of Congress to control the money and this includes Children's Health Care. If they want to increase funding for it, then lobby in congress so the will pass legislation to do so. Stop whining about Trump.

No one is stopping Congress from doing anything they want.

This Tax Accountant's Thoughts on the New Tax Law

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/12/20/1726234/-This-Tax-Accountant-s-Thoughts-on-the-New-Tax-Law

This is a draconian tax bill for employees. it creates incentives for self-employment, which means that we will see more and more people look to work for themselves, and companies and corporations already have incentive to hire sub-contractors instead of employees to avoid paying benefits. Without the mandate to have insurance, health care premiums will go up, and self-employed people will have to bear the cost without employer subsidies. 

It will particularly hurt wage-earners, you who are employees. It will specifically hurt police, fire fighters, nurses and teachers. Why? Because it eliminates employee business expenses. Teachers can take $250 of deductions, but "Masters plus 30" education — teachers can get raises up to 30 hours past their Masters Degree —  will no longer be deductible if you earn more than $65,000 as a single person or $130,000 as a married couple. In other words, education you pay for on your own dime to become better at your job — any job — will no longer be deductible starting January 1st. You can take the Lifetime Learning Credit, but it phases out completely at these income levels. Starting in 2018, classroom supplies, photocopies, incentives, classroom decorations, class parties, union dues are all gone. Police, nurses and firefighters, who previously deducted uniforms and equipment, you can kiss that goodbye, along with union dues. Carpenters and electricians can no longer deduct equipment, tools and supplies.

Yes, there will be a higher standard deduction. And those who pay for supplies and union dues out of pocket will be hurt disproportionately compared to those who don't. And, as has been discussed elsewhere, the $10,000 SALT cap hurts my clients who live in Connecticut, New Jersey and New York, where I prepare taxes as an Enrolled Agent, licensed to practice before the Internal Revenue Service.




This is the wave of the future, which technically expires for individuals in 2026, at which point we don't know what will happen,but the corporate tax cuts will be permanent. This will create massive budget deficits.  Speaker Paul Ryan is already saying that the increase in the deficit means that Congress will likely attempt to cut Social Security and Medicare benefits. We're going to have to get back next year at entitlement reform, which is how you tackle the debt and the deficit,” Ryan said during an appearance on Ross Kaminsky's talk radio show.   "...Frankly, it's the health care entitlements that are the big drivers of our debt, so we spend more time on the health care entitlements — because that's really where the problem lies, fiscally speaking. In other words, Congress will be paying for tax breaks to corporations by cutting Social Security and Medicare to pay for it.  

Make no mistake. This law Is designed to benefit they Republican donor class, who have threatened to cut off funding unless and until this has passed. It also is insidiously designed to social engineer our society, away from wage earners and the benefits that employers are obligated to provide, to become an increasingly non-union and non-employee based economy of contractors and sub-contractors, with no benefits, sick pay, family leave, unemployment insurance, workers compensation, or vacation pay.

And, of course, no health insurance.

And still, the debt will grow by trillions....


oh well

this is what Trump supporters wanted ???


life is hard

it's HARDER when yer STOOPID

(let me know if you want me to explain thatLOL )



and I REALLY hope that anyone on SS or Medicare pays careful attention

you see what Paul Ryan has to say don't you ???


be afraid

BE VERY AFRAID

Distributional Analysis of the Conference Agreement for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act


The Tax Policy Center has released distributional estimates of the conference agreement for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as filed on December 15, 2017. We find the bill would reduce taxes on average for all income groups in both 2018 and 2025. In general, higher income households receive larger average tax cuts as a percentage of after-tax income, with the largest cuts as a share of income going to taxpayers in the 95th to 99th percentiles of the income distribution. On average, in 2027 taxes would change little for lower- and middle-income groups and decrease for higher-income groups. Compared to current law, 5 percent of taxpayers would pay more tax in 2018, 9 percent in 2025, and 53 percent in 2027.


translation?

the rich get richer

and the poor get poorer


83% of the benefit goes to the top 1% of the population

cause you know they live paycheck to paycheckLOL


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wealth_inequality_in_the_United_States

he "richest 1 percent in the United States now own more additional income than the bottom 90 percent"

yeah

you read that right


and guess what

that 90% isn't enough


they want MORE and MORE and MORE

and they are going to get it

America’s Worst Graveyard Shift Is Grinding Up Workers

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/america%e2%80%99s-worst-graveyard-shift-is-grinding-up-workers/ar-BBHuUb7?li=BBnbfcN


thank goodness we are a KriStiAN Nation with a KRiStAN PresidentLOL

OSHA’s power has always lain more in its capacity to shame than punish. The fines for serious safety violations seldom exceed $20,000, a trifle for most manufacturers. Now OSHA doesn’t shame much, either. In the past, the agency called out safety violators in press announcements, often resulting in embarrassing hometown headlines about injured workers. But this year, under President Trump, OSHA has issued 121 press releases, compared with 546 last year under President Obama. 

The Trump administration has also stripped OSHA’s website of data on workplace fatalities, replacing it with highlights of the agency’s cooperative safety initiatives with industry. Among the Obama regulatory proposals that Trump’s OSHA has dropped this year is an updated standard for lockout/tagout, the crucial procedures workers should follow to shut down dangerous machines before working on them. And this fall, after the GAO reported that meat and poultry workers are suffering health problems from being denied bathroom breaks and fear punishment if they complain, OSHA rejected the GAO’s recommendation that its inspectors ask about bathroom access during plant visits. “OSHA does not routinely ask questions about any potential hazards that go beyond the scope of a complaint investigation, unless those hazards are in plain sight,” wrote the agency’s Loren Sweatt to the GAO in response to its findings.


yeah

cause Trump is a "man of the people"  LOL

Few people who knew Trump had illusions about him. That was his appeal: He was what he was. Twinkle in his eye, larceny in his soul. Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance.

Lawmakers got a two-day briefing in December from a psychiatrist about Trump's mental state—TWO DAYS

In private meetings with more than a dozen members of Congress held on Dec. 5 and 6, Lee briefed lawmakers – all Democrats except for one Republican senator, who Lee declined to identify. Her professional warning to Capitol Hill: “He’s going to unravel, and we are seeing the signs.”

In an interview, she pointed to Trump “going back to conspiracy theories, denying things he has admitted before, his being drawn to violent videos.” Lee also warned, “We feel that the rush of tweeting is an indication of his falling apart under stress. Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency.”

I don't care. I am deathly ill with the flu and tired of reading this crap on the media while there is no news at all about the flu.

Across the United States, Americans are coming down with potentially deadly strains of the flu this year, with at least twelve children who have already died after contracting the flu this season. According to a report by the Centers for Disease Control And Prevention, "influenza activity" is increasing across the southern half of the US, with the deadliest, most dangerous cases attributed to the H3N2 strain. As the flu is a viral infection, antibiotic drugs are completely useless against it, and antiviral drugs only serve to make symptoms potentially milder or shorter. The CDC estimates about 5 million flu cases are prevented annually by receiving a flu-shot. Wochit

It is so serious, deaths have already occurred in some states this flu season:

  • In California, at least 11 people younger than 65 have died, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The state does not track flu-related deaths among those 65 and older.
  • In North Carolina, 12 people, including a child, have died.
  • In South Carolina, seven have died. All were age 65 or older.

they don't count people older than 65 or even report it in California.
