    Under the new tax laws, many of my middle class friends are posting the changes they are incurring under Trump's new tax laws.  I'm hearing anywhere to $2,000-5,000 changes in negative ways.

      I know a couple who mentioned that, but I don't know specifics. My husband does our taxes and we came out pretty much the same as last year.

      The IRS is reporting that average tax refunds for the middle class are 8% lower than they were last year. Large numbers of filers are receiving much lower refunds than they expected and a great number are saying they've had to pay for the first time ever.

    Like everything else Trump and republicans desperately try to accomplish, the Socialistic "Corporate Welfare Tax Scam" they unconscionably passed a while back when the GOP controlled congress was diabolically designed to pull the wool over our eyes by shifting TRILLIONS of OUR money away from Americans who desperately need it to pay bills, provide food for families etc, and into the greedy little claws of weasels like this guy, Steve Mnuchin millionaire who made money in the past by foreclosing on home-owners and now he'll be more than happy to take even MORE of your money: DISGRACEFUL: He'll be standing next to Donald trying unsuccessfully to explain his abominable actions to the good lord when he departs this Earth and heads directly into the red boiling abyss:

    Republicans passed laws which transfer Trillions of dollars in unnecessary Socialism Programs to enrich the wealthiest among us and not only do they refuse to provide HealthCare for all Americans, but they and the mad oval office resident continue to ASSAULT our HealthCare System stranding Americans in the streets without an insurance policy: The good news? The Mighty BLUE Progressive WAVE of Righteousness defeated the Russian Red congressional republicans by 10 MILLION Votes in the 2018 midterms, a record number and we are poised to DEFEAT Trump and the Russian Red Senators by another record margin in 2020 and will implement a "HEALTHCare for ALL" plan in the very near future despite the constant dark attacks from the alt-right oval office:
