Almost everyone in this Country knew a Government controlled entirely by Republicans could and would pass a tax reform bill.  However, I doubt there were many in this Country who believed such a tax reform bill would be as unpopular among the electorate as this one appears to be.  Very surprising the GOP couldn't or wouldn't design a bill the people would get behind.

Corporate profits that remain in foreign countries presents a credible and very real threat to American workers.   When a company has offshore funds, they are incented to fund new business creation and efforts in those foreign countries where they have funds.   This is just common sense.

Bringing those funds back to America will create significant job opportunities for American Workers.  Additionally it is likely the government will receive significant windfall as companies bring that money back home.   This also is just common sense.
35% of 0 is 0
20% of Kajillions is a ton of money.

Companies are believed to have on the order of $3T or more in offshore accounts.

America works best when corporations, government and citizens join together to create a strong and thriving economy and all can join the American dream together.   

Don't listen to the loudmouth socialist that prattles endlessly here.  Apply a bit of common sense.

Would love to repatriate that money.  Who is holding it up?

Heard Little Marco might vote no on the tax bill?

Saw that article.  it was on Wapo paywall so I don't need to read it.
Voting no seems ludicrous.  

Only Dewey could try to spin major tax incentives in a negative way.  If it happens, I am betting that interest rates start going up.

I can't begin to imagine how much future generations will enjoy the wealthy of today filling their pockets while their national debt obligation rises even higher than without this tax cut.  Someday more of us must stop and think about those behind us as we borrow more money in order to allow the wealthy to pay less taxes.  The Corporate tax?  OK, I hear the case being made.  But the wealthy getting tax cuts?  Bad idea for all generations, current or future.

I heard some Conservatives want to cut the SS of the elderly collecting today.  Is this a goal of most Conservatives or just some?   Imagine if next year we cut the SS payments being made to our parents right after we cut taxes for the wealthy in 2017.  That would be incredible.

Never heard you caring about "future generations" when President Obama was running up more debt than all the Presidents before him COMBINED.

How come during the Obama administration, you never whined about the fact that the income gap widened?

Democrats try to raise minimum wage, give more in child tax credits, including child care credit, and try hard to increase taxes on the wealthy, including estate tax.  All these efforts are done to close the income gap and to try and match revenue with spending, aka a balanced budget.  Admittedly, we have a hard time selling these tax increases to the GOP (all they seem to do anymore is get cut) and thus the income gap widens and the deficit rises higher.

It's absolutely fair to bash Democrats for supporting more revenue, in the form of taxation particularly on wealthy folks, as they try to close the deficit and wage income gaps and move us closer to a balanced budget.  The GOP obviously disagrees with our approach.  With that in mind, it's extremely unfair to also accuse Democrats of not caring about deficits when, as I just explained, they try hard to reach a more balanced budget.

The next comment will ask why Democrats refuse to reduce spending.  Democrats are for driving down healthcare costs and reducing waste.  But what should be clear today, as obviously Republicans haven't found many areas open to cuts other than elderly people drawing SS, the budget is going to have to be balanced primarily on the revenue side.  Unfortunately, we're slashing revenue growth every decade or so with these tax cut demands and the debt just goes up and up and up.  As so many politicians have pointed out, the GOP constantly kills revenue in order to tell Americans we don't have the money for the programs they desire.  This game is costing future generations a whole lot of money.

On another note what kind of person frequents a website on a daily basis knowing full well how disliked they are for posting lies under multiple hanldes and getting called out for it over and over. Who seeks out that kind if negativity in their life and gets enjoyment from it.

You think the way to close the income gap is to give the poor a few hundred dollars more?  You really are an idiot.

I will ask again, do you think a $50-75 dollar minimum wage is a good thing? If you think it is excessive, please enter into debate as to why that is so. Also, please tell us what in your experienced opinion is the correct minimum wage, and why. I am awaiting a response based on your superior economic knowledge to be shared with employers nationwide. After all, what would we do without your guidance and superior intellect?

If UE rates are at an all time low, why is it that my State UE taxes went up? Could it be that the operating staff that send state employees all around the state doing seminars need a hotel and minibar upgrade? I get at least 6 emails a year urging me as an employer to attend their seminars to explain how they go about extracting money from my company, and how I benefit from them confiscating my hard earned cash.

Yeah, I know. DD just left the Government sector and is jumping into the private sector on the corporate/business side of a large corporation. I had urged her to stay on the safe side that the government provided to a young woman with a family. Oh well, I told her to get ready to actually work 12 hour days and all. Time to join the real world. Should prove to be a learning experience at the least. We will see how it works out, and knowing her, she will chew through concrete, and spit it out on the other side, and look good doing it. Some people just seem to be able to skate through life, encounter obstacles, and blow through them. Not sure where she got that from.

The sausage grinder has produced a tax reform bill. Which EGOP members will prevent American taxpayers from getting a tax break? We know the Dems will oppose anytihng that stops taxation. Which RINOs join them?

Sen Rubio and Sen Lee want more middle class tax cuts.  Considering millions of middle class families who itemize are likely to see tax increases, a change from 12% to 10% for the lowest tax bracket and a return to 39.6% instead of a drop to 37% for the highest tax bracket would seem to be a better route to consider.

They are taking way more of upper tax income tax deductions away.  The lowering of their rate was to keep some sense of parity.  The 39.4 percent already bear a disproportionate amount of the the tax burden.  It has been shown here numerous times.

Still waiting on an answer from someone from the left on how much is the upper bracket's "fair share"

40% ?
50% ?
60% ?

Not from the left.  But will venture a reasoned answer.

39% is excessive taxation.  Giving up more than a third of what you make is awful.  That means you work from Jan 1 every year to April 20th or so, just to pay excessive tax burden. 

30% still seems fairly high. But more reasonable.

As we lower upper income tax rates they tend to get way more generous in their support of charities.  This is a much more efficient way to make sure our poor and needy are getting the help they desire.  Funneling that money through a massive bureaucracy which in turn wastes about 60% seems a bad concept.
