How can the right deny that they only exist for the wealthy?

I mean can they read. Their hateful cruel budget bill takes trillions from the needy and gives it directly to Big B, the wealthy and the military(which of course is to the wealthy). They say that we need tax cuts and deregulation for business at the same time that Big b has the highest profits in history, the fastest increase of profit in history, and the highest percentage of gross that is profit in history. Business needs nothing. They are trying to sell it as a jobs bill, how stupid do they think people are.
Probably what bothers me the most is how weak minded their supporters are, to go along with this, when it is totally against their best interest. It's disappointing to see a population with that level of intelligence. It only tells me how easy it would be for some wacko to take over this country as a dictator.

Funny how the Left wing nut cases tell us how the taxes will effect this class that class..

The law has not been written that.

If the tax is written to what Trump Requested (median family income ~50k/year)
Gross income

$50,000
Qualified plan contributions
-
$3,000
Adjusted gross income
=
$47,000
Standard/Itemized deductions
-
$24,000
Personal exemptions
-
$8,100
Taxable income
=
$14,900
Tax liability before credits

$1,490
Child tax credits
-
$1,490
Estimated tax liability
=
$0

Can you break down the plan and explain exactly how it does all these horrible things? Or are you just regurgitating something some liberal talking head said. Maybe the needy(lazy) could help out, and get a job, and stop making excuses like I have 4 kids with 4 different fathers, so I don't have time for a job because they all ran off. Oh and I can't live off of money working fast food, because it isn't supposed to be full time work with great pay, and benefits, so I will stay on the couch and eat Twinkies.

I'll go you one better !!!!

Equifax gets hacked. The financial data of 145,000,000 people, quite literally almost half the people in the nation, is possibly compromised. So what do they do ??

First, they wait WEEKS to notify the relevant agencies about the data breech.

Then they set up a website so consumers can see if their data has been compromised. However buried WAY DOWN DEEP in the fine print was language that said, if you use the website to see if your data has been compromised, you AGREE NOT TO SUE EQUIFAX. You have to submit to arbitration, which 80% to 90% of the time sides with the business.

The backlash was massive and Equifax was forced to remove the language. Now the Consumer Protection Agency, set up after the housing crash, has already implemented a rule that prohibits mortgage lenders from forcing arbitration. They had a similar rule set to go into effect in March of next year for credit cards, reporting agencies and other consumer loan and credit related businesses.

Last night, at 10pm our lovely, compassionate and oh so protective of the average guy, Republicans quietly voted to KILL THE RULE. It's expected that Trump will sign it !!!!

64% of Republican support the rule.
73% of Democrats support the rule.
67% of independents support the rule.

That's pretty substantial support for a rule. Yet last night our legislators showed us WHO OWNS THEM and that they have absolutely sold their souls to corporate America, killed it off.

I don't know where you learned of this but Axios is the only place I have seen it.

It should be the top story all over the country. The banks run the country and Dotard and the Republicans kiss bank ass.

The news feed on my iPhone picked up a Wash Post article about it.

The fact that the banks run the country is exactly WHY it's not a top story.

The truth is Trumpos latest blatherings are infinitely more ratings worthy than the absolute raping of America by the bankers and their puppets in congress.

Only an idiot would think more taxes on business is a good thing. How can a good employer give good employees big raises and bonuses when they're forced to give that money to the government?
