Oh God the irony. Do you deny Dems are funneling BILLIONS to illegals via the child tax credit, a credit they are not legally entitled to? You disloyal traitors in the Dem party belong in prison!

Again you are trying to change the subject. The child tax credit should be supported by Republicans who supported it several years ago.

And right there shows you the disconnect between the real inflation that folks are getting hit with and the promise of more "free" shit....Those two numbers should be much closer since more free shit will lead to more inflation.....Sadly it also speaks to the intelligence of the average voter.

It shows your lack of intelligence. By your logic, Congress should not pass a highway bill. No it does not automatically lead to inflation. The problems were created by the pandemic.

Nah, an a**hole maybe, but a stupid one, nope. Odds say, your side is screwed biggly, lol. That isn't rocket science, that is just obvious-) If you want to keep denying facts in evidence, then you are the stupid one, not me!

Your side is the stupid one. Democrats need to start calling Republiocans for what they are. Right wing fascist pigs.

Pouring non-existent money into the economy is what causes inflation. In the simplest terms, inflation is too much money chasing too few goods.

What is the reason for too few goods? The pandemic as well as big business' decision to mistreat their employees are driving factors. In addition big business is taking advantage of this too raise their profit margins.

Unfortunately the far right is motivated to vote while more moderate voters are not. A lot of Germans were asleep at the switch while Hitler took over. The same thingt could happen in 2022. If Trump gets his way, that may not happen. Trump is supporting far right wing radicals and Democrats need to call them out. They also need to call out Republican racists., Also wonder how voters are going to handle Republican deadbeats.
Very good description of what just happened in 2020. Too many Americans fell asleep and elected a socialist government and dictator to go along with it. 2021 clearly showed Americans have woken up.

Inflation is caused by many things. Racking up federal debts is one of them, and supply chain problems from the pandemic also have had this effect.

However, governments can be blamed for most of the supply chain issues. First, lockdowns across the world have contributed heavily to these issues while not actually stopping the spread. Second, vaccine mandates have resulted in a lot of firings and strikes. Third, paying people too much to stay at home has resulted in labor shortages as well. All of these come from government.

That’s right: The plan now is to raise the cap on state and local tax deductions for federal income taxes, otherwise known as SALT. The 2017 Trump reforms capped it at $10,000; Pelosi would raise that to $72,500 in 2021, then gradually to $80,000 over the next decade.


Per the Tax Foundation, this means a tax cut for more than 70 percent of US households making over $200,000, with those earning over $500,000 reaping the most benefits.

Trump capped SALT tax deductions. Pelosi raised those levels twice!

Doesn't that just make you angry? Not at Pelosi and the democrats, I'll bet.
No, it doesn't.
That was no SALT cap, at all, before 2017.
State and local taxes deductions were unlimited.

Your either going to pay the state or the federal government.
The provision is planned on being terminated in 2030.

YES, they did.

The FBI also asked the public to help it identify rioters, a call that drew ribbing on social media in light of the prolific coverage of the event. This included selfies posted by participants and videos of President Donald Trump’s supporters at area hotels before the attack.

Some individuals who had previously been photographed at Trump rallies and supporters of the QAnon conspiracy-theory movement were quickly identified. Online detectives focused their efforts on others.

That’s why states like CA and NY Could have such high taxes. They were fully deductible from federal taxes making them a wash for taxpayers.

From the link.

Trump’s tax law limited SALT deductions to $10,000, meaning that residents in higher-tax states like New York and New Jersey could no longer deduct the full value of their state tax obligation from their federal bill. No limit existed before the Trump tax cuts.

People and corporations pay one government or the other.
