Nitwits that vote republican that write policies like permanent tax cuts for corporations.
Because anyone with a brain knows that corporations DON"T pay taxes. If you raise their taxes all they do is raise the price that consumers pay for their products. You tax a corporation and the consumer suffers!!
Mark if Dems are taking control (like they claim) then they can easily make the cuts permanent
Why do we have to wait for that to happen? Why is it ok for your tax breaks to be temporary? No one seems to be able to answer that. So vote republican, get screwed and hope that the democratic party wins back the agenda and fixes what the republicans did? That's not an answer to why regular people vote republican. I don't believe republican voters are stupid. I believe they've been suckered into believing trickle down works. It does not.
It doesnt matter how strong the mkt is. It matters how strong main st is.
The only way the tax cuts could be passed was to make them temporary. The original bill was written so that the cuts were permanent-as far as the market goes, anyone who has an IRA is affected when it drops. That's just about everybody- when corporations are strong, the economy is strong. Even if you don't like Trump, he's been very good for business. (I wish he'd cool it with the tariff threats.)
The "temporary" tax cut for individuals is 10 years. A recently revised report from the Tax Policy Center revealed that only 25% of Americans "might" pay more taxes in 10 years, not everybody under the new code. 10 years is a long time in politics, so rest assured, Mark, your democrat politicians will have plenty of time to muck it up and raise our taxes back to where they were, or worse, once they get back in power. I should probably put this in meme format if I really want him to understand.
