They can't make up their minds if they should cheer that cut they've been screeching didn't exist (even though it does), or if they should follow the "we need to tax MORE" line of communist arguments...

1. I'm confused
Republicans have created a massive deficit. How can we just cut taxes? Cutting taxes is a Republican thing. Why are we trying to compete by cutting taxes? Does this bill end the tax cuts on the rich and corporations? Otherwise this is weak sauce. It reinforces the Republicans' message.

10. no
Republicans cut taxes for the rich.
This bill attempts to take the burden for that off of those the Republicans want to surreptitiously crush. Republicans can either pass it or reveal to the majority of voters exactly who they are.
Recovering the Republican kickback to ultra-rich can come later.

4. How about taking back
those huge tax breaks for the rich and big business? As it is now, is little folks are footing the bill for them.

And THIS precious little commie thinks 37% (double what he pays) isn't enough... paying 37% is being "a parasite"

9. "Plenty of taxes"

Let's see. Using 2018 tables:

100K taxable income = 18% federal income tax
The median income in the country is about 50K = 14% federal income tax
1 million taxable income = 34% federal income tax
"Plenty" is a rather subjective term but the above rates don't seem onerous to me at all.
The top tax bracket is a mere 37% in 2018 while, in 1981, it was 70%. Using inflation-adjusted figures for the above:
36K (100K today) taxable income = 30% federal income tax; while
396K (1 million today) taxable income = 64% federal income tax

The above makes it quite obvious that it's a silly notion to promote a "middle-class tax cut." It's not needed. Instead, the parasite class has to start paying their fair share to support their own country.


Sometimes I do wonder if as a country we deserve to go the way of the DoDo bird. We have nearly half of the country thinking like and supporting communist ideals. I suspect that one day they will get the remainder of their wishes, and that will be the end of what was once the most prosperous and free country on the planet.

When you look at the latest group of dummies elected to congress it makes you wonder who it is that they represent and if they are an image of their constituiencies, we are really in trouble.

The DUmpchump talking about the 'Good old days' of 70% tax rates omits to mention what a tremendous drag it as on the economy, and the huge off-the-books economy it created in every profession that could get away with it.

well, it is just a glimpse into the mind of a communist.
when you ASK them what percentage they think is "fair", they will never answer. Apparently that number is 70% or higher.
And that is why these cretins need to be vanquished

This dummie actually nails it but not like it thinks.  The parasite class are all those on welfare, not the rich. Cut welfare 75 percent and the deficits goes down considerably.  Not to mention Tayquanisha will have to get off her lazy ass and work to support her 12 bastard children thus joining the ranks of us taxpayers.

Small glitch in your post there, Hermie...
The tax cut INCREASED federal revenues...
Yes, republicans will bitch about the deficit, because of all the spending going to worthless POS's like you...
