Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, March 02, 2019

A government report has revealed that 11 million taxpayers are losing out on $323 billion worth of deductions due to a punishing change in President Donald Trump's tax law. The deduction wallop detailed in the government report centers on capped deductions for state and local taxes -- including real estate taxes. The cap was imposed to help pay for huge tax cuts to corporations, whose taxes were slashed by 40 percent, from 35 percent to 21 percent.

Simple transfer of wealth. You either understand that or lie to yourself to justify your support for Trump and the Republicans. They didn't even say thank you.

"Democrats are complaining about progressive taxes on the Favored Fifth, the upper 20 percent."

Republicans steal elections, suppress votes and then us Democrats don't like it when they give the 1% huge tax cuts and run up huge debt. I plead guilty. Of course we don't like it because it is bad for the nation but morons like Nulli and Andrea applaud them because that is what trained seals do.

And you ignore the tyax cut and increased duductions for the lower end of the tax payers. How did he cut taxes for the rich and not the poor? You cannot explain your stoopid claims.

Biggest bitch seems to be those people who can no longer deduct their 'state and local taxes, ['also known as SALT deductions']. I believe that those deductions should have never been allowed in the first place and glad to see it now gone. Now they can also pay their 'fair share' [gee, but I think I'm beginning to like that term].

Yeah, God knows tax incentives to buy and own property are terrible.

You really have become a complete joke, but at least you've got your little terrier Andrea following you around to NW flag your posts.

That went away and life still went on, but like you there were those who moaned and complained. Of course those without credit cards thought it was a fair move. Just another move toward paying their fair share IMO.

LOL I hope we meet in person some day, Andrea. I'd love to find out if you're the hairy, over weight, lazy eyed guy in a wife beater who always has a slight scent of cheese that I envision.

They are complaining because the elimination of the SALT deduction hits the States with the highest taxes the hardest.

Surprise, surprise, those States almost overwhelmingly went for Abuela in the GE. Now the residents of those States are going to push back against higher taxes that are funding the programs that the Unions their Democratic lackeys need to get votes.

No duh. It was inserted into the "tax reform" because nothing can be done by the current GOP that isn't a middle finger to libruls.

All things equal, a person living in Texas earning $500,000 in income shouldn't pay a higher federal income tax than an exact clone living in New York pays to the federal government.
