Top 20% of Income Earners Will Pay 87% of Taxes in 2018

From The Political Insider:

2018 will be the first year with the Donald Trump tax cuts in effect.

While initially unpopular, the majority of voters do now support Trump’s tax package. Most had been misinformed by the media that the tax cuts were just tax cuts “for the rich,” and not for ordinary Americans.

In reality, the Trump tax cuts reduced the top income tax rate from 39.6 to 37 percent, and the bottom rate fell from 10 percent to zero. The 15 percent rate dropped to 12 percent, the 25 percent rate to 22, the 28 percent rate to 24 and the 33 percent rate to 32. The tax cut was most beneficial for the lower and middle class, and the standard deduction was doubled.

Taxpayers are seeing the proof in their paychecks.

Additionally, the hundreds of companies announcing $1,000+ bonuses to their employees as a result of tax reform also helped boost the tax cut package’s popularity.

One social experiment showed that liberals even favor the Trump tax plan when it’s presented to them as being attributed to Bernie Sanders.

Just three years ago, the top 20% of income taxpayers paid 84% of all income taxes. For some context, the top 20% earn “only” about 51% of national income in a given year. In other words, they’re paying out of proportion to the percent of total income they earn (which is to be expected with a progressive income tax).

This year, despite media cries that the Trump tax cut is only for the wealthy, they’ll be paying a larger share of the income taxes this year.

According to the Wall Street Journal:

In 2018, top earners will pay a higher share of income taxes.

The individual income tax matters—a lot—because it is the largest single source of U.S. revenue. And its share has risen in recent years. For 2018, it could raise 50% of total federal revenue, according to estimates from Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation, up from about 48% last year.

Surprised? Only the mainstream media should be.

Sherrod Brown: 'Studies' show white supremacists have allies 'sprinkled around the White House'

“Instead of performing theatre for the extreme left fringe, his time would be better spent fighting for everyday people by supporting the Trump agenda of pro-worker trade and immigration policies that will raise wages and living standards for all American”

Unbelievable

From The Washington Examiner

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said Sunday white supremacists are “sprinkled” around the White House, adding he wished President Trump would apologize for his call to the family of one of the four soldiers killed during a deadly ambush in Niger.

“I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist and Stephen Miller seems to be,” Brown told CNN, referring to Rep. Frederica Wilson’s comments on Friday that the Trump administration is “full of white supremacists.” “And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled around the White House.”

He didn’t say which “studies” he was referring to.

Brown waded into the controversy surrounding Trump’s dealings with members of Gold Star families by saying the president should apologize and admit that what he told Sgt. La David Johnson’s grieving widow “didn’t come out right.”

“It would be a nice touch if the president would once in a while act that way instead always attack, always attack, always demean the way he does too often,” Brown said before continuing that Trump had a habit of insulting people by not naming them.

According to Wilson, Trump was needlessly insensitive during his condolence call with Myeshia Johnson on the death of her husband, who was killed during a reconnaissance patrol as part of an advise-and-assist mission in the west African country earlier in October. The family has backed up Wilson’s version of the call, while Trump and the White House disputes it.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders hit back at Brown’s “outrageous and slanderous” remark, saying “the nonstop name-calling from the left continues to show an inability to build consensus and fix the problems ailing hardworking Americans.”

“Sen. Brown needs to understand that when he calls out public servants who are part of the Trump administration, he is indicting the voters in Ohio themselves who overwhelmingly voted for the president’s agenda,” Sanders said in a statement. “Instead of performing theatre for the extreme left fringe, his time would be better spent fighting for everyday people by supporting the Trump agenda of pro-worker trade and immigration policies that will raise wages and living standards for all Americans.”

I do not agree that Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller are white supremacists. What is with all the batshitcrazy black females in govt?
Pass the Raise Act!

We need to take our States back!

I just got off the phone with my Montana State Transportation Dept. Why was I calling them? Well, in my state, citizens that use gas for “off road” use are entitled to a refund from the state tax we paid on that gas. My state is primarily an agricultural state so there is a large majority of farms and ranches that use gas for their farm equipment, which never see pavement, among other things that use gas. But the refund is for anyone that uses gas not intended for vehicles that drive on the roads and highways of Montana. (boats, ATV’s, snowmobiles and jet skiis are exempt, I know how stupid is that, they never see pavement either)

I apply for the refund every year because I use gas to run our generator for our electrical use. And since I am not a business or a farm/ranch I never had to submit my gas receipts unless something did not jive and they asked me for them. Until now.

I was told today by the helpful man who handles these refunds that I must submit every gas receipt for the year that I was requesting a refund. Each receipt must have my name and address on it. When I asked him why I had to do that this year and not all the other years I had been requesting a refund, he told me that the federal government ie; the IRS had come to the State of Montana and told the State they were changing the rules surrounding the State gas refund.

The first thing I said to this helpful man was that we need to take our State back from the federal government. He said “I agree one hundred percent”. This from a state employee!! He told me that the IRS was also requiring businesses, farms and ranches fill out IRS forms so that the federal government can tax the gas refund. Yeppers folks, the federal government wants to tax a State refund. It’s a wonderful life huh?

Anyway, I was also told by this helpful man that his boss was so afraid they would loose their job that they told the IRS agent that they would do anything to accommodate the federal government. So what was the response from the IRS agent to this submission? We’ll be back in four months. (Don’t want to loose those federal highway funds, nope nope nope)

How many other sneaky policies are being instituted across this great Republic against the States? How many State bureaucrats are folding like cheap lawn chairs to the will of the federal government?

I keep all of my receipts so this is just going to be an inconvenience for me. But it should be an inconvenience brandished upon me because of my States’ decision, not some pencil pushing federal dope located somewhere in Washington DC. We better wake up people, things are getting dicey.

Liberal “New Republic” suggests Obama use military against Tea Party
On Tuesday, the liberal New Republic published an article that was a not-so-subtle suggestion that Barack Obama use military force against the Tea Party in the same manner Boris Yeltsin used it against hardliners in his government nearly 20 years ago.
Shutdown halts federal regulations
The government shutdown has all but turned off the regulatory spigot, reducing the flow of new rules from federal agencies to a trickle. Regulators and proponents of stronger protections warn that rulemaking delays will jeopardize public safety and health. But some conservatives say the reprieve from red tape is welcome, even if it doesn’t last long.
$2,472,542,000,000: Record Taxation Through August; Deficit Still $755B
The federal government raked in a record of approximately $2,472,542,000,000 in tax revenues through the first eleven months of fiscal 2013, which ran from Oct. 1, 2012 through the end of August, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement for August.
McAfee On Obamacare: What Idiot Set This Up? “This Is A Hacker’s Wet Dream!”
On Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto” on Wednesday, computer programmer and founder of McAfee, Inc. John McAfee said the online component of Obamacare “is a hacker’s wet dream” that will cause “the loss of income for the millions of Americans who are going to lose their identities.”
ObamaCare Employer Mandate: A List Of Cuts To Work Hours, Jobs
ObamaCare’s impact on jobs is hotly debated by politicians and economists. Critics say the Affordable Care Act, with its employer mandate to provide health insurance, gives businesses an incentive to cut workers’ hours. This year, report after report has rolled in about employers restricting work hours to fewer than 30 per week — the point where the mandate kicks in. Data also point to a record low workweek in low-wage industries.
Astronauts worst fear floating off into space
Of the 7 billion people on the planet, only 530 have been in orbit, and less than half of those have ever physically been outside a module, walking and working and floating in space.
No film in recent memory has sparked as much terror and fascination with the idea as “Gravity,” starring Sandra Bullock as an astronaut who becomes untethered from her space station, possibly lost forever.

IRS is targeting the American Legion with new set of guidelines

Look the IRS is Constitutional. How they operate is not. Who will be next? Again, this is a story we didn’t get to on the show.

From The Daily Caller:

The Internal Revenue Service is targeting the veterans’ organization the American Legion, and a U.S. senator believes that Lois Lerner — a key figure in the IRS scandal – is to blame. “The IRS now requires American Legion posts to maintain dates of service and character of service records for all members… The penalty for not having the required proof of eligibility is, apparently, $1,000 per day,” the American Legion stated.


Minnesota Government Shuts Down

From online.wsj.com

Minnesota encountered its second government shutdown in six years on Friday as Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican lawmakers failed to reach a compromise on closing the state’s $5 billion budget gap.

Meanwhile, lawmakers in Iowa averted a shutdown Thursday, and several other states waited for governors to finalize their budgets.

Without a two-year budget agreement in place, state parks and the Minnesota Zoo will be shut for the July 4 holiday weekend, nonemergency road construction will halt and thousands of state workers will be furloughed.Minnesota’s battle has been echoed in budget fights across the U.S. States had to close a collective $86 billion budget gap for their new fiscal year, which began Friday for most states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Is your state next? Scary times folks. Are you and your family prepared? It’s time to think about self-reliance.Technorati Tags: , , , ,
