Probably pretty good since the POS has been running free for decades.
um...re-read my posts. I didn’t post what you think I posted.
Sigh....expand your eyeballs.
Bravo! Love your application of English!
(ready your rifle)
The changes in the tax law is a pertinent topic for discussion, because I believe it was a major contributing factor towards the GOP losing the House (that and Vote Fraud).
Even Cohen and Mnuchin admitted that the tax bill was really a Corporate tax cut (35% to 21%). They had to figure out a way to "pay for" that cut.
So what did the GOP do? They went searching through the sofa, looking for loose change. Take the SALT deduction for one. It had been federal tax policy since 1862.
It was considered "immoral" to force citizens to pay taxes upon monies that they already paid in taxes.
The Corporate tax cut required a $4 Trillion bill to pay. The GOP shifted that burden to individuals and families. The tax bill picked "winners and losers."
There’s no sense talking to a person who doesn’t understand that Corporate taxes are paid for by individuals and don’t do anything except destroy the competitive ability of our companies and result in loss of jobs.
As far as morality goes, all federal income taxes are immoral. That is why the constitution did not allow them. It is also immoral to tax dividends, capital gains, and death. Yet it happens, and none of it is personally directed at me or you.
Taxes suck. This year it sucks less for me - that’s a big change, because every other tax reform has taken me years to dig out of the hole. So I’ve been there. Not once did I ever get all bent about it. Things suck sometimes, but life goes on.
I am not unsympathetic, but I do think it is a good thing that high tax states and millionaires with dozens of houses have limitations on the federal subsidizing of their taxes.
I didn’t like losing the sales tax deduction, or the credit card interest deduction either. As far as the election, there were many variables there - I don’t know anyone that voted DEM due to tax changes.
Anyone stupid enough to vote for DEMs or stay home and let DEMs win over a fairly understandable tax change is just cutting off their nose to spite their face.
And it’s rather pointless to continue the bitch fit, since it’s pretty obvious that not many feel here feel the same way you do. It really doesn’t matter-the law is now changed, so do what everyone else does-adjust to the new reality.
Just hope that the next tax change isn’t the DEMs raising taxes to pay for medicare for all and the green new deal. Cause that’s gonna hurt a heck of a lot worse.
As I said before, I hope all eventually works out better for you and all of us too.
hort of plastic surgery (recall Chelsea / Webb Hubbell rumors), I am convinced.
Speaking of Chelsea, I just read she is pregnant with her *third*...
1) How can any guy be in such dire straits as to do her three times?
A. (Quip) “Paper bags”
2) Three children? Why does she hate the planet?
3) When do the college admission scandals start? She’s none too bright.
I'll just jump in. Congress rhymes with dumbass -- the rhyme isn't perfect. That's called an assonance. 😜
The herd mentality is strong, especially on these threads. That doesn't make it true.
Like I said, pointless to talk to someone who adopts the idea spouted by commie leftards that cutting corporate taxes somehow shifts a tax burden to individuals.
Individuals pay that tax burden one way or another. That’s just the left painting those EVIL corporations and pretending that everyone can have a free lunch by raising the corporate rate.
Reality is not their strong suit. Sorry you fell for it.
“It seems that a LOT of us here have been experience strange computer and/or internet problems.”
Last night the power went out on me. Address to the left, right, and across the street had power, but I didn’t. Took about an hour for it to come back on. Also hit a nearby ATT substation, as I could hear their generator running.
That's what the tax bill did greeneyes.
I am not trying to be argumentative. But let's be fair.
The tax bill shifted trillions in revenue from corporations to individuals and families.
Gary Cohn admitted that their priority was to cut corporate taxes, and they had to "pay for" that revenue shortfall somehow.
That book mentioned in the article (An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America. ) is still available...
Just how bull headed are you? I have a degree in accounting and finance. As well as a certified financial planner and corporate tax experience.
That shift language they like to use is because most people don’t understand finance. They ought to quit using it. You can’t shift something to an individual that is already paid by the individual.
They ought to cut the dang tax rate on corporations to zero. That way Corporations could lower their product prices. That would be good for individuals here, and make their products more competitive in foreign markets.
Now you can pay that tax through the prices you pay for goods or you can pay it with your tax return. Either way you pay for it.
The taxes paid by a corporation are part of the cost of the product. Raise their taxes and the cost of the product goes up, or they fire people to get their costs down.
And those stock buy backs that article you posted bemoaned help every individual with a 401k, and every pension fund that exists, and any mom and pop with an account at Ameritrade etc.
I applaud every tax cut to corporations and small businesses that is made. And rich people already pay the majority of the taxes. Almost half the people in the lower brackets don’t even pay income taxes.
Like I said income taxes are immoral. They should be outlawed for everyone.
And with your degree and background, you cant admit that the revenue shortfall created by cutting corporate taxes was shifted to individuals via capping (and eliminating) long standing deductions? That is being bull headed.
No it was going to be paid by the individuals regardless. What you are buying into is an illusion.
Like I said to begin with, there is no sense talking to someone that buys into the erroneous idea that Corporations pay taxes and give individuals a free lunch. That is not reality.
