    It’s hardly trump’s fault te dems in your state have massively high taxes. The US Govt shouldn’t be subsidizing your state’s high taxes

    I can't fault you for the misguided links, but I can assure you that if these tax haven't helped you then you're either on government assistance and/or unemployed, or you're knowingly spreading false information because you hate Trump. I do, however, fault you for buying into the bullshit.

    I don't really care either way, but I do find it odd that it's only liberals and other misguided social outcasts that aren't seeing higher paychecks, etc. from Trump's tax cuts.

    Yes, you care. And it is not "only liberals and other misguided social outcasts."

    And then, of course, you have to take into account that you are explicitly ignoring the other goals of the GOP tax cut and why it is failing so hard. It is not increasing wages, it is not creating jobs, it is not bringing back overseas revenue, and it is not spurring investment.

    The only statistic that is truly being helped by the GOP tax cut - the only INTENDED beneficiary as well - are corporate profits.

    It is explicitly trump's fault that they tried to balance the massive increase to corporate profits on the backs of individuals who reside in states with higher state taxes.

    (Also known as the States who already contributed the most money to the Federal government).

    All proven Trump supporters I'm sure, as twitter is such a trustworthy site.

    I got a $6,240.00 a year raise which moved me up a bracket, and I'm still getting a refund back.

    But hey, maybe it's just me and everyone else I know that his taxes positively helped.

    So when do these people get the point that living in a high tax, high crime, high welfare assistance, high poverty blue state is a bad idea? My guess is that they won't, and that's how progressive liberals keep winning in those blue states. Suckers for abuse I suppose.

    Hardly....all he did was close a loophole....the issue here is blue state legislatures tax people to death. You can still deduct up to $10K...so really only the rich are being hurt...which is why they are fleeing NY

    Calm down. You mentioning job creation is a joke. Unemployment is nearly non-existent and employment among blacks and other minorities at all time lows. More women in the workforce than ever before. Higher wages? With low unemployment comes higher wages but you already know that. Just 13 hours ago,

    Some states still have yet figured out how to handle the implications of this new tax bill. bill. MN being one.
    I get you hate trump which is probably why I like him so much not to mention the 44 new judges he appointed last week alone which will help both of us.
    Park your rage, rejoice in the 44 new judges he appointed last week alone which will help both of us, and think how much further along we would be if Trump didn't have the whining lefties slowing his every step.

    Liberals in Blue States: Tax the rich!! Close the loopholes!!!

    Trump Tax Cut passes, closing loopholes.

    Liberals in Blue States: You sorry SOB, my taxes went up....I'm not voting for you (but it's not like i voted for you the first time).


    I think it's funny as hell.

    It really just shows a gross incompetence of the tax system....which at least one liberal poster finally admitted to having.

    August 17th, 2018 is not "almost one year old." And since you have a difficult time with calendars, you could use an education.

    Which article is more recent? August 17, 2018 (mine) or July 11, 2018 (yours)?

    When is the tax cut supposed to increase wages, create jobs, bring back money from overseas, and increase investment?

    Those same employees got 11.7k in bonuses last year.

    If you want to make a thread about the 44 judges approved by a judiciary committee last week, go for it. But they have zero relevance to the failures of the GOP tax plan.

    A growth that does not exist above and beyond the trend lines that took place before the law was passed. And goes negative as soon as you take into account inflation and population growth.

    Do you know what would happen if they truly made taxes easy? How many govt employees and CPAs would be out of work? So they purposely keep it complicated to preserve jobs. Creepy=)

    I used my 6 month old source to refute your 7 month old source.
