RE: TAX REFORM

Well its the first time I've seen a chart like that. Kinda numb actually. Tax reform is another step closer today and a Thursday vote looks likely.

RE: TAX REFORM



From the very little that I do actually understand this does not sound like a good thing for average Americans.

RE: TAX REFORM

Democrats don't like it because the Grand Old party is doing it.

I was reading some people who said there is a lot of what Obama wanted in the plan years ago but Republicans had been totally against it. I guess it's different when the idea is then claimed as their own.

I think it will too. I don't think this is a good thing at all.

RE: TAX REFORM

The bill has passed and this tax reform will become law. Hopefully it helps as many people as possible. Now they need to pass a budget something that hasn't been done in quite a few years.

The Senate tax reform bill just got the required votes to pass. But, a bill won't make it to President Trump's desk until the House and Senate bills are melded and the consolidated bill is passed by Congress.

There is still disagreement between the two branches when it comes to mortgage-interest deduction, taxing small businesses, and keeping the alternative minimum tax. It looks like the Republicans are very motivated to negotiate though and it will probably happen soon enough.

Trump handled this legislation much better than the Health Care repeal effort, in my opinion. Instead of insulting resistant senators publicly, he reportedly talked to them and worked to address their concerns (and made some concessions for Senators Johnson and Collins).

I don't like a lot of things about this tax reform proposal, but hope it really does end up generating enough economic gains to help most everybody.

Here's the senate bill: https://www.wsj.com/public/resources/doc...012017.pdf

RE: TAX REFORM

By most accounts this tax bill is a baldfaced stripmining by the wealthy and corporate donors at the expense of the working class and elderly. No wonder Wall Street loves these guys. They're fully paid for.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

I read it was a big kiss to the donor class.

I see it goes back to the house. I believe it goes through. Hopefully before Christmas.

Have I been wrong all these years in thinking you are fiscally conservative?
