    You cannot trust anyone in politics. They are all liars and scammers. Doesn't matter who is in office. It is sickening. I am debt free at 54 and our government is 22 Trillion in debt. Wow! I think little old people like me should be running the government! They are without a doubt a bunch of dumb asses!

    Like the $400 billion funneled thru Clinton foundation? Or Obama defense bill that funnels money to Mainstream media for propaganda. Trump just stopped that! Hence the layoffs in media already! About time!

    You would think if there not given enough time to review something or there unable to make out the legibility of the document it would automatically be the politicians responsibility to vote “NO” to safeguard against such shoddy tactics.

    Sad thing is, your typical Trump voters probably have no idea what just happened. They are too busy watching the Kardashians to pay any attention to what their “savior” is doing to them. Which is what Trump, and the conservatives, are counting on.

    I don't understand you people, even a Chinese, I can see Trump's tax reform can help a lot for Aemerica economy and middle class people. Chinese goverment is criticising Trump, because the tax rate in China is too high, more companies may move to USA.

    Just so you don't look as ignorant as Stephen Colbert, use this tax calculator: Also consider that In 2013, the top 1 percent of taxpayers accounted for more income taxes paid than the bottom 90 percent combined.

    I understood tax cuts for the rich was a good thing. If im not mistaken thomas sowell spoke on this issue. If you tax the rich more they feel inclined to send theyre money elsewhere and simply refuse to pay or look for other said loopholes. If you lower the tax they are more likely to pay it. Trickle down effect i agree to be rubbish. But i thought taxe cuts in itself was a fairly decent thing.

    Sigh 😔 whyyyyyy why can’t we have a system in which the Poor, Middle Class, and the Rich pay the same percentage of taxes I mean it makes sense the rich do not need any more money!!! I know the idea seems radical and maybe “communist” to some but why can’t we have a system where everyone pays taxes and the rich pay the same percentage of taxes as poor people.

  • Joe Jupiter

    What about letting the money trickle up instead of down?
    Give the poor more money, more people will be able to buy stuff, stuff has to be produced, factory owners will make more money, to keep on producing they hire new people, those people earn money they can use to buy more stuff.
    For trickle-down economics, we need rich people that actually spread the additional money and don't just keep it to invest it in another Ferrari.
    For trickle-up economics, we need poor people that don't just put the additional money they get into their bank account and leave it there, but spend it on all those things they always wanted and/or needed or didn't have enough of it.
    What seems more likely?
