    for the wealthy. Like a tease to get re-elected in 2018 and again in 2020 and then it's too late, all downhill from then on, with cuts to all social programs which are kicking in already and will enhance after the bill passes and gets signed into law. If you think the Pubs are going to raise the min wage or corps are going to raise wages, they will not ; if they can offer cost share on health ins (even if doubling what you pay- since the ACA and Medicaid will be defunded), and also most GOP states now are right to work, means an end to unions and prevailing wages. Sneaky!
    -------------------------------------------------

    The report shows that this bill is much like a teaser rate on a new credit card: there are some goodies in the first couple of years, but those disappear fairly quickly, at least for those below the median income. In 2019, the first full year that this bill would be law, the benefits are concentrated on the bottom of the income stream, with middle-class people, on average, paying just under ten per cent less in taxes than they would if the law weren’t passed.


    With each passing year the benefits shift upward, toward the rich. By 2021, those making between twenty thousand and thirty thousand dollars a year are paying considerably more in taxes, those between thirty thousand and two hundred thousand see their benefit shrinking, and those making more start to see their taxes falling.

    Question:

    How can anyone honestly comment on a bill that hasn't been written yet, much less voted on yet?
    Of course this never stopped the left from trashing it, claiming that it only benefits the rich.

    Answer: They're lying

    Good. The incentive should be to work and/or study harder to move up. It should not be an incentive to stay poor and on the liberal plantation for life.

    Democrats love the poor so much, they want to make more of them.

    Few have that incentive. Also if everyone was rich, who would work? The corps will not raise wages, that is a fallacy.

    They don't work harder, they just can launder their money better. Money begets money. Oh from Tn I see, did you vote for Diane Black, the witch.

    Oh yes they do. You're just jealous that you lack the work ethic that many of the rich employ.

    If you want your's, go and get it. If not, accept reality and quit worrying about what the rich are doing. That is why you have Hollywood to escape too
