Tax Reform

0 comments

 

Determined to avenge themselves after the humiliating defeat of Roy Moore for the Alabama senate seat, Republicans were even more determined to push through the tax reform bill. This tax reformed bill is touted by Trump as a huge tax relief for the middle class. However, most economist state that the very rich and corporations are the biggest winners. In fact, this tax reform bill is wildly unpopular. Recent polls show that approximately 48% of the population disapprove or this bill.

 

 

Most economist state by 2027, there will be a tax hike of approximately 31% for the middle class. The tax breaks will remain constant for corporations. According to the Trump administration, the corporate tax break will trickle down providing better salaries and more jobs for the middle class. Now, most economist refer back to the Regan era that provides the best indicator that this in fact will not happen. But hey maybe the Trump administration knows something that the best economist don’t! You be the judge. Do you think that giving corporations huge tax breaks would trickle down to the masses?

    Y’all know that our political environment is a hot mess right now. With Cohen, Manafort, and the Russian probe how much more can we take! Well some of you may not of heard this story – On August 22, 2018 Y’all’s president sent the following tweet: “ Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump I have asked Secretary of State @ SecPompeo to closely study the South Africa land and farm seizures and expropriations and the large scale killing of farmers. “South African Government is now seizing land from white farmers.” @ TuckerCarlson @ FoxNews ” What he’s referring to is South Africa’s policy of land redistribution. In a recent Wall Street Journal article, the African National Congress (ANC) is planning to change the constitution. It wants to allow the redistribution of land without compensation to overcome the inequalities in land ownership during Apartheid. Under the Apartheid system the white-minority rule, which only made up 8% of the country’s population, own the majority of the land. Still today they own 73% of agricultural land. South African President Cyril Ramphosa and other ANC members, quickly denounced the rhetoric of Trump and that awfully racist tweet! It appears that South Africa is putting in a real effort to right the racist wrongs of the past. It seems to me that America can take a page out of their play book! Trump mind your business, you about to be indicted! Leave your thoughts comments feelings reactions?!

    Another mass shooting. A high school in South Florida experienced a mass shooting on February 14, 2018. There were 17 people killed by a 19-year-old gunman. He purchased an assault weapon legally. Innocent children gunned down. Their lives cut short. They will never get to experience growing up, pursuing a career, having children of their own. Terrified survivors pleading with Trump and the Republican administration to do something. Trump addressed the nation. He blamed mental illness as the major culprit of this massacre. He said nothing of gun control. I ask, why does a teenage need a AR-15 rifle? Why does anyone need an AR-15 rifle? Yes, I am for the 2nd amendment, however, I don’t believe you need assault weapons. Pistols to protect yourself and property but assault weapons, come on!!! What do you think? How should we reform our right to bear arms system?
