Nobody's Opinion

What? Tax Reform? Are We Taking Bets?

Nobody Knows

Everybody is wondering: Will Congress actually pass tax reform? All Americans want it, and Congress doesn’t seem to even have to pay taxes, so they can go around pontificating about the deficit and blah blah blah…but none of this affects them. Whenever they evade paying taxes, not a thing happens to them.
If they were paying the same taxes as us, they wouldn’t become millionaires.

Only two republicans can afford to wreak the whole mess, especially if there are no democrats to break from Chuckie and Nancy, and right now, eight are saying they don’t like it…so it doesn’t look good.
There ARE no sensible democrats left in either house, so, is this going to come down to one vote again?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve heard so many views on the different plans, from so many different sources, at this point, why should we expect any kind of functioning at all to come out of our government?

Mark Levine is especially mad. He’s in that higher bracket and he just started a big new venture with his television/cable, so, I can see why he’s mad. He’s not made it to that top 1 percent yet.

Rush Limbaugh says the plan really doesn’t do as much as they say it does. I have to agree with him that usually, when they give you a break in taxes on one thing…they stick it to you on another.

It never fails.

But President Trump says it will help the middle class. What we don’t know is: where exactly does the “middle” class start? $50 thousand? $65 thousand? $75 thousand? $200 thousand? I’ve heard all these figures given by different pundits. And since half the people don’t PAY any taxes, how can they afford to keep all their big welfare and refugees in cash and comfort?

They can’t. And Paul Ryan wants MORE refugees, more workers…Paul works for the corporations. Paul has already figured out how to screw the American people, but we won’t know until we wake up and look at the price of living…later.

The companies want cheap labor, and the democrats want votes.

If the only thing that comes out of this, is a lower tax rate for the big companies so that they will move back to the United States and start hiring more people here…than that would certainly be a good first step.  But, only if they stop the massive immigration. Companies will just keep paying the low wages and you might get a job, but you still won’t be in the “middle” class. They’ll just bring in more foreign workers, and wages will stay low. It’s a win/win for the Fortune 500.

At least, that’s Ryan’s plan I think.

So, what do I think will happen?

I can think of a few outcomes:

  1. They will pass tax reform, but they will not get rid of the Obamacare mandate. Everybody will start dying off.

(Big companies win.)

  1. They will pass tax reform, but most Americans making under $75 thousand will only see a small amount of increase….and their refund at the end of the year, will be much smaller.

(Government wins.)

  1. They won’t pass tax reform, more than one will reject it, and because of the fury of the American people, somehow, we will go to war. Probably with North Korea.

To take our minds off what just happened.

(Nobody Wins)

Nobody Knows who will be blamed if tax reform doesn’t pass…but this Nobody is pretty sure…the American people will NOT blame President Trump.

And Nobody Wonders, if it even matters to the GOP if they go down in history as the Congress that just couldn’t get it up…for the American people.

I’m optimistic about the President…but I have no faith or trust whatsoever about Congress.

How about you?
