Politics / Republicans, Not Biden, Are About to Raise Your Taxes

OPINION
Republicans, Not Biden, Are About to Raise Your Taxes
President Trump built in tax increases beginning in 2021, for nearly everyone but those at the very top.

By Joseph E. Stiglitz (Mr. Stiglitz, a university professor at Columbia, is a Nobel laureate in economics.)

The Trump administration has a dirty little secret: It’s not just planning to increase taxes on most Americans. The increase has already been signed, sealed and delivered, buried in the pages of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

President Trump and his congressional allies hoodwinked us. The law they passed initially lowered taxes for most Americans, but it built in automatic, stepped tax increases every two years that begin in 2021 and that by 2027 would affect nearly everyone but people at the top of the economic hierarchy. All taxpayer income groups with incomes of $75,000 and under — that’s about 65 percent of taxpayers — will face a higher tax rate in 2027 than in 2019.

They are already planning impeachments where there are no crimes, and their MAGA troupes of 'breaking it so that they are the only one that can fix it' (to ensure their relevance.)

Here a lie there a lie even more lies everywhere
Old McCarthy had a scheme … EIEIOH

IN OTHER WORDS, once again, the Republicans only succeeded because of voter suppression and voter intimidation, not because they were popular enough to win the vote like free people in a democracy.

I've watched the speech more than once today.  He did well and I am proud of him!

Looks like Shanon Sharpe and the NFL Community are speculating about the increasingly realistic possibility of California Representative Kevin McCarthy joining the 08 Lions & 2017 Browns for being the only ones to be winless in January at 0-16.

Just a gigolo
Everywhere he go
People know the part
he’s playing
Paid for every dance
Selling each romance
Every night some heart
Betraying
There will come a day
Youth will pass away
Then what will they say
About Kevin McCarthy
When the end comes I know
They'll say he’s just a gigolo

Thanks for the correction.  Maroon and Grey

Update from Hamlin’s Rep: Damar Hamlin’s ‘vitals are back to normal’ and he is undergoing further testing at hospital

Now, I am a Case Manager who works the ER and ICU for the hospital that I work.  The rep's statement also noted they were placing Hamlin on a breathing machine.  While this is "news", its still not great.  A breathing machine (ventillator} is not a device that support 'vitals are back to normal' as one of the vitals happen to be breathing (respirations).

My prayers continue for the player and his family.

i'm still salty about coach Sam getting fired also.  And Decks, you are not the only person on this board "in the minority" about who is rumored / key / about to be signed up and the next coach.  I will also take a wait and see take on the next hire, and support him in his new tenure.

My family said a prayer for this young man and his family.

I'm old enough to remember Len Bias falling out on the basketball court during a game.  Yet, the ball bounced on.  I was in the air preparing to jump when the previous flight had an airborne soldier experience a seizure and all jumps cancelled.  Yet, we are still jumping...  A referee fell out during a UNC Football game.  I was there.  He survived to officiate again. 

Look, what is important is the player's health.  Hamlin is in my prayers.  CPR and the use of an AED during a game is very, very serious.
