You did shit. Wat you posted provided no statistics about all eagle deaths.
So, no Republicans polluted?
YES BECAUSE THEY STILL OVERALL PAY LESS
What part of that don't you understand?
Way less than who?
So when you find out the top 1% pays 30% of the taxes and the top 10% pays 70% you still say stupid stuff.
...less than themselves WITHOUT the budget busting tax-cut bill, duh.
Top 1% takes home around 25% of all income in this country why the fuck should they not pay 30% of taxes?
It is as if Republicans got together and thought - hmmm, how can we max-out our credit cards to help people that need it least in this country?
No taxes are being raised on the rich. Taxes will go up for some middle class people. Trump will get a big cut thanks to the pass through provision which will be a big loophole for the rich.
Trump dill do MUCH better than that, the bill is practically WRITTEN for Trump and his kids:
“This is going to cost me a fortune,” Trump said on Wednesday in Missouri. “This is not good for me.”
So surely at least a few of the most egregious loopholes that benefit Mr. Trump and real estate developers like him will be closed.
Not in the slightest.
In fact, the proposals seem almost tailor-made to enrich the president and people like him.
“Commercial real estate came out essentially unscathed,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum, a conservative advocacy group. Real estate developers “didn’t lose anything they care about,” and they got even more breaks, like a shorter depreciation schedule in the Senate tax bill, Mr. Holtz-Eakin pointed out.
Mr. Trump still has not released his tax returns, so it’s impossible to know to what extent he would personally benefit from the legislation. But there’s little doubt that he would.
“Lower pass-through rates and the repeal of the alternative minimum tax — those two alone are so hugely beneficial to Trump that I have trouble imagining any way that he wouldn’t come out ahead,” said Steve Wamhoff, senior fellow for federal tax policy at the nonpartisan Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy. (The pass-through reference involves income that typically comes from partnerships and limited liability companies.)
Not only that, but rental income, royalty payments and licensing fees — some of the president’s major sources of income — get especially favorable treatment under new rates for pass-through income. (Mr. Trump’s assets include more than 500 pass-through partnerships and limited liability companies.)
“Trump will make out like a bandit on all the big items,” said Steven M. Rosenthal, a senior fellow at the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center./
Trump Says G.O.P. Tax Bill Wouldn’t Benefit Him. That’s Not True.
Trump and the GOP cut funding for cancer patients who have Medicare.
Didn’t your lying media tell you that?
