Be very careful about tax reform.

by Eric Matteson Monday, Nov. 27, 2017 at 5:21 PM

Tax reform might INCREASE YOUR TAXES instead of reducing them. Please be sure that Obamacare individual mandate repeal is in bill before voting for it.

Keep taxes high Republicans got elected by promising to repeal Obamacare.

Senator John McCain (R Arizona) decided on his own to break that promise
for the entire Republican party.
The Obamacare individual mandate is unfair to poor people because
the 5.00 minimum tax value is a higher percentage of a poor
persons income than of a rich persons income which is
exactly backwards compared to any normal TAX!!

Republicans are considering a tax reform plan and as of 11/13/2017
we do not know yet for sure what will be in it.
News reports claim that there will be a tax reduction for corporations
but a tax increase for all Californians because the state
income tax and home mortgages will no longer be deductible .
Tax reform will not create a single job until something is legislatively
done to make Obamacare less severe or repealed.
TAX REFORM MUST BE DEFEATED
( unless one of the following amendments is added in. )
  • Repeal the Obamacare individual mandate.

  • Change Obamacare individual mandate to just 1 per cent
    of amount of income over 000.00 and get rid of the
    5.00 minimum tax.
    AND do not reduce taxes on corporations that provide
    health insurance until Obamacare is totally repealed!!

Remember that tax reform will be EVEN WORSE for taxpayers if
Obamacare is not repealed or at least made less severe.
There are two possible ways to
pay for tax cuts to corporations.
  • Abolish SSI disability payments.
  • Repeal Obamacare individual mandate.

  • Pretty please believe that repealing the Obamacare individual mandate is a lot more FAIR than abolishing SSI. Disabled and sick and old people over 65 NEED SSI to pay their rent and buy food with. Abolishing SSI will do FAR MORE HARM to needy people than abolishing the individual mandate. A small or other size of gasoline TAX could be used to raise money for health care instead of charging premiums or a individual mandate health insurance avoidance fee. Before the individual mandate repeal was considered Republicans were planning on a separate WELFARE REFORM BILL after tax reform that will include DISABILITY PAYMENT REFORM. If and only if the Obamacare individual mandate is repealed to pay for tax cuts then the disability payments reform including abolition of SSI will be automatically removed from the separate welfare reform BILL. ----------------------- Pretty please SAVE SSI and Social Security for disabled adult child payments by making sure that Obamacare individual mandate repeal remains in 2017 Tax reform bill including the conference committee final version or whatever final version is voted on!!

Tax giveaway has 1000 errors!

by marc Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 at 11:00 AM

Denial, distraction and a corrupt corporate media can lead to depolitization. Federal judge Orrick in CA ruled Trump can't punish Sanctuary states. But the corrupt media only talks of hypocrites like Mulveney who said children deprived of school lunches are better students!

The GOP tax bill has at least 1000 mistakes (taking billion from HUD, trillions from Medicaid and food stamps and 0 billion from Medicare are examples). Are they waiting for the next 1000?

Tax bills should close tax havens and end tax competition. Tax fairness means McDonald servers shouldn't pay more tax than the parent company! Profit shifting enables McD, Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Nike, GE and Microsoft to declare profits in mailbox firms in miniature states.

If the tax giveaway passes, the term "honest Republican" becomes an oxymoron like "military intelligence." More at www.freembtranslations.net and www.grin.com
