Anyone who is honest and knows anything about the state of business in our country knows that Trump's tax cut was a giant scam. Now even a Republican is admitting that it isn't helping the middle class. I know I haven't seen a penny from it, and I am a contractor at a fortune 100 company.

I got to keep more of my money, the government got to take less.



Little Marco can suck it.




Just goes to show that leftist douche-wads are also republicans.

Wow, dailykos is not a biased anti Trump hate site?
Aside from that, there is no real research there to back
up that claim. But just in case there are a few people
out there that see no benefit to the Republican led
tax cuts, what would the point of voting Democrat,
as they promise to raise our taxes?

Does he want to see my paycheck? Because I get to keep more of my money every other week. I was very happy.

Me too. Not sure how it's going to work out next April though.
I need to get on it.

I think Rubio's point was that companies don't seem to be trickling those tax savings down. Surprise.

A few more dollars are always good for us serfs but Trump’s booming economy is what we're talking about

The few dollars we get is nothing compared to the boon the rich got.

Maybe you’ll get a new TV, a new iPhone, a dinner out with the girlfriend but a boon, no, that’s for the rich.

Trump was talking about a booming economy, jobs, raised salaries, that we ain't got, and we won't get it from that tax cut.

B.S.

I am middle class. I have my own Subchapter S business. I just spent several hours with my CPA in tax planning. The Trump Tax Cut is saving me a ton on my taxes.

It's not about lining your personal pockets. It's about the economy as a whole. Whether the tax cuts will do that or not, meh? I don't know. I kind of doubt it. I do know we have one of the highest tax rates for corporations in the western world, and the tax cuts hardy dented that. And I do know that half the people in the US pay no federal income tax at all, so yeah, you don't get a tax cut because you don't pay anything anyway.

Frankly, I don't CARE what the 'rich' get. I'm focused on what ***I*** get. Stop with the politics of envy.

Why do you guys always say one hates the wealthy? I don’t hate wealthy people at all.

If I am a person who cares for the poor than I am naturally happy some people are well fed, the greedy fu___in pigs!

Sorry. According to my paycheck I will make an extra 1400-1500 on my base pay and a few more grand on my bonuses. An extra. I clear over 100k a year. That means I am keeping quite a bit more than I was.

Take a look yourself. Everyone will get more money in their paycheck.

Every little bit helps the economy because it allows people to move up and not stay stagnant. Wages have done nothing in the last 2 decades will goods have gone up 3, 5 10%.

Less business tax also brings more jobs which brings more taxes for goods and services.

No if the government would step in and regulate healthcare costs we are golden.

Who cares?

Why should you care what anyone else makes?

It's none of your business!

Why?
They all got cost of living raises every year.
I doubt he did.

Talk about cool aid?

What has always amazed me is why conservatives seem to worry so much about the taxes the rich pay.


You think they give a damn about you?


You're being very adroitly scammed.
