Do you like the GOP tax bill that will increase the deficit by $1 trillion?
If hate it then I ask you, did you contact your 2 senators that represent you via email or phone? Since 1971 the middle class has lost 30% of its wealth What this bill does is take $8 billion from the middle class to give to the top .01%. Proverbs 22:16 He that harms the poor increases his own affliction and he that gives to the rich suffers loss to his soul.
God has nothing to do with this, and the simple solution is to replace the income tax entirely with a National Sales Tax and not even a Flat Tax. The Flat Tax still uses the Income and that means no real change. The NST will remove the need for the bulk of the IRS and it also gets rid of the Internal Revenue Code. And it is that code that gives the rich the escape from paying their fair of the tax burden.
You are looking at this TAX situation in the wrong light.
Ask why both the left and the rights want to keep the income tax system?
Senate Republicans' tax scam is not guaranteed. Trump and McConnell can afford to lose only two Republican votes — three would sink the bill. The next vote begins TODAY at 11:00 AM. There is still time to get in another call.

This is like really important. If they put a 'trigger' in there it is going to totally suck to be us.
Massive permanent tax cuts go to corporations and the wealthy, while the crumbs to the middle class are small and temporary. It imposes a mountain of debt on our children and grandchildren.
The massive tax cut has never changed it is called the Internal Revenue Code and it doesn't favor wage earners. The wealthy don't make their fortune by earning wages. This is the shell game, and calling congress is not the answer. Prob is bipartisan.
Bradski would love for you to not contact Congress, Contact here: https://www.contactingcongress.org/

Doesn't have any arguments on my comments.
Sort of like Hillary's presidential platform. "We hate Trump" "Don't vote for Trump".
Both parties are at fault on the tax bill and they have been at fault since 1913. IRC is major problem
US GDP growth rate from 2006 to 20016 - the last ten years have been the following in order; 2.7%, 1.8%, -0.3%, -2.8% 2.5%, 1.6%, 2.2%, 1.7%, 2.6%, 2.9%, 1.5% BUT the FAKE MATH of GOP is based on 2.9% steady for TEN YEARS. That's insane to assume.
Red Herring Alert --- distraction alert.
We don't need any data, we can feel the difference since Trump became president.
Not a big fan. At a minimum, the tax plan should have been balanced between corporate tax cuts and more urgent relief for working-class and middle-class workers. I'm not convinced that any trickle-down plan will keep pace with automation.

When Obamacare passed it began life with a high approval rating. Once the GOP propaganda juggernaut kicked into high gear (along with some amazing, but temporary Dem incompetence), that approval rating tanked and stayed that way until the GOP tried to repeal it. Today, Obamacare is well...

The Senate jammed through their version of the GOP Tax Plan the morning of 12/2/17 with only one vote to spare since GOP Sen Bob Corker voted against it. To get 4 or 5 wayward Senators to vote for the bill, various types of pork had to be included in the final version (which was being written...

What is your opinion?In my humble opinion, these few GOP senators that is blocking the bill, are miss guided.Even if the bill is not perfectly worded, they should pass it. That way, the whole system can be revisited.How it gets implemented in detail has very little to do with the actual language in...

It seems to me this newly elected member of Congress could use some help. She seems energetic, expressive, full of passion and wanting to do good...Being the youngest member of Congress at age 28, she did not have much experience as a leader or legislator...Perhaps we can give her a leg up and...

I cannot wait to hear the responses on this one. A day after Obama was threatening how he will not pay the armed services, not pay Social Security, not fund Medicare, and more. "we do not have the money to pay these things We need to rasie taxes" I agree with him on eliminating tax breaks...

Here's a small idea for the Super Committee that's supposed to report on how to achieve a trillion dollar savings in the federal budget by November 23--stop paying pension costs of Defense and Energy Department contractors.http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/13/busin … f=businessI wonder what the...
