For Democrats, even cutting taxes will kill you

kill you

Early this morning, I went onto Twitter and discovered that the Senate passed the Tax Reform bill. Cutting taxes. Sounds like a great thing, right?

Well, it turns out, cutting taxes will kill you.

Who knew?

Oh, the drama!

From the way the Senate Democrats were kvetching, you’d think the Republican majority just voted to open extermination camps.

Meanwhile, in the Real World, the millions of Americans who were forced to purchase health insurance against their will were thrilled to learn that the Senate plan got rid of the liberty-killing “Obamacare Individual Mandate.”

Which, according to the Democrats will kill you.

The idea that being able to keep more of your own hard-earned cash is somehow a death sentence is so preposterous.

But are you surprised?

Democrats have been using the “This irresponsible Republican bill will kill you” argument for everything.

Because Democrats are so completely opposed to over-the-top rhetoric and reckless hyperbole.

Okay, not really.

Speaking of over-the-top rhetoric and reckless hyperbole, here’s the economically-illiterate doofus from Vermont.

If only he got this upset when Black Lives Matter idiots looted Ferguson.

So not only are the Republicans killing people, their robbing the Treasury.

And by “robbing” I mean, not taking so much of your money.

See, that’s what has Bernie’s BVDs in a twist.

Bernie would prefer that the government loot from us.

What Democrats fail to comprehend is it’s our money not theirs.

A tax cut does not rob the Treasury.

Instead, it just enables us to keep more of our own money.

For Bernie, every cent you earn belongs to the Government. And it is only through generosity that the Government permits you to keeps some of it.

For Democrats, we’re not working for the weekend; we’re working for them.

And for all their drama, when you get right down to it, that’s what pisses them off about this tax reform.

The Democrat Party has abandoned working class Americans, small business owners, and job creators.

And the only people they “fight” for are the permanent underclass – the ones who do not pay any taxes at all.

Democrats don’t want a vibrant, growing economy because a vibrant, growing economy will actually lift people out of poverty – and out of government dependence.

The Democrats need a permanent underclass solely dependent on welfare and government largesse.

Without that permanent underclass, the Democrat Party loses what little power they have left.

They oppose tax cuts because tax cuts benefit people they don’t give a rat’s ass about.

But they certainly can’t admit that, can they?

So instead they resort to fearmongering, outright lies and pearl-clutching hysteria.

And like in most things, the Democrats are pushing too hard and too far with this over-the-top “It will kill you!!!” rhetoric.

But it’s all they have.

The truth is, the Democrat Party has no earthly idea how to manage the Federal Government. They never did.

Why do you think Barack Obama was able to double the national debt in just eight years?

To them, the US Treasury is the everlasting gobstopper of ATMs. And if it’s running low, it never occurs to them to maybe cut spending. Instead, Democrats believe it is the government’s right to reach into your paycheck and take a little more.

They’re like heroin addicts – addicted to our money and the votes they buy with it through government hand-outs.

But the louder they scream, the more hysterical they become, the more I know that this tax plan will be a benefit to the American people and our economy.

And when you get right down to it, that’s what upsets the Democrats most of all.

Because what benefits the American people and our economy will kill the Democrat Party.

    The rich celebrities from Hollywood are crying that this will kill people and give the rich tax cuts. You’d think that would be a good thing for them when they have 3 houses.

    Except the last time Republicans did this, we had a great financial collapse. So perhaps they’re not so much clutching pearls as simply paying attention to things.

    Maybe if you took the blinders off you would too.

    To those of us in the center, both you guys and the left are what’s wrong with this country. A bunch of loud parrots with no real ideas.

      Do you expect to be paying more taxes yourself then?

      And yet here you are Thomas, listening to this loud parrot. So, in addition to being a self-righteous centrist, you’re also a closet bird lover.

    Much as I love to watch DemoRATS squeal, I can’t say I’m particularly happy about this tax overhaul. Have you read the actual bill? Because I have. While the cuts on the business side make sense and hopefully will kick the economy into overdrive, they barely cut tax rates for individuals and kill a ton of deductions. Important deductions. Mortgage interest. State income taxes. Property taxes. Medical expenses. Student loan interest. I calculated what my 2016 tax bill would be under the proposed legislation and the results are staggering. Far from the “big, beautiful, fat tax cut” for everyone we were promised, my Federal income taxes would INCREASE A WHOPPING 23% under the House bill and 29% under the Senate bill! Now I’d be OK with no cut for me. Hell, I’d be fine with a reasonable increase as I think this may well benefit the country as a whole. But I didn’t work my butt off for 8 years supporting, contributing & campaigning to hand the levers of power over to these GOPe a$$clowns so they could not repeal Obamacare and rape me on taxes like a drunken Democrat. As you are fond of saying, Dianny, Sorry, No Sale!

      It nearly doubles the personal deduction ($12K for individuals/$24K for couples).

      Property taxes can be deducted up to $10K. The Senate bill includes medical expense deductions in large part because it gets rid of the Individual Mandate. Mortgage interest is retained (Senate first $1M, House $500K). We’ll see what happens when the House & Senate reconcile their two bills.

      But either way, I doubt it will kill us all.

        I’m not crying here, Dianny, and I’m sure I’ll survive, either way. But as I said, I didn’t work these last 8 years to help elect people so they could rape me on taxes more than any DemoRat would have dreamed of doing

          I had to go back and read my reply to see when I said you were crying. But it turns out the reason I couldn’t remember saying you were crying is because I didn’t say anything about you crying. What I did write about was the deductions you said are eliminated that are still in the bills.

            I never inferred you did say I was. I was just saying that this isn’t just me being a big baby, here. I did the math with the House bill which allows $10k property taxes, as is now in the current Senate bill. The 23% increase figure is accurate. This means over $6k/year in Fed taxes to me. To some people, that’s a drop in the bucket, but that’s real money to me. I doubt you’d be particularly happy if your taxes were raised $500/month by the very people who promised to cut them.

    @John Gaultcsa, perhaps you’d like to try to convince me why -> I <- must pay the state income taxes of people in high-tax states such as California and New York, especially when that money is being used for things I categorically oppose, such as sanctuary for illegal aliens, and for which I have no way to vote the criminals who impose those taxes out of office. Why don't you vote out the politicians in your state who levy those taxes on you instead of thinking people from other states owe YOUR taxes?

    Why do you think I owe for your mortgage(s), interest, or property taxes. My name isn't on the deed or the loan papers. Why do you want to foist your expenses on anyone but yourself, and why are ANY of these additional taxes a responsibility of the federal government in the first place?

    Convince me. If you can.

    Congrats, Phuzzy. You echoed the GOPe talking points beautifully. Now I’ll show you why that’s horseshit and YOU AREN’T PAYING MY TAXES OR MORTGAGE, as you claimed.

    First, here in the People’s Republic of NY, we have a ridiculously high cost of living and salaries to match. A family living on Long Island earning $200k lives about as well as someone in TN or AL, making $75k, but we pay MUCH more in Federal taxes, even after deducting our obscene SALT. For the money my tiny ranch house on a 60×100 foot postage stamp costs, I could buy a mansion in most of the country. Food, clothing and just about everything else is correspondingly high, as well.

    Second, what we pay in taxes is only one piece of the puzzle. What if, for example, a particular state can afford not to tax its residents at high rates because it receives disproportionately more funding from the federal government than states with apparently oppressive tax codes? That would change the narrative significantly, revealing federal dependence where bold, efficient stewardship was once thought to preside, don’t you think?

    Check this link (https://wallethub.com/edu/states-most-least-dependent-on-the-federal-government/2700/). I could list many more impartial sources, but I think you’ll get the gist. I’m far from endorsing the commies running our beautiful state into the ground, but it turns out most of the red southern states are much more dependent on the Federal government than many of the big, disgustingly blue ones. The whole red states subsidizing the blue states, is a load of crap.

    I don’t know where you live and where your state ranks along these lines, but unless you’re a multi-millionaire (which I am not, but good for you if you are), the odds are I paid A LOT more Federal taxes last year than you did. That’s before getting a 23% increase as calculated against the House bill (which the Senate one is now actually close to) jammed down my throat. Care to put real numbers down and see? You show me yours & I’ll show you mine.
