Trump is paying it down, its the truth, according to Price... I don't know how he created that reality, but did it nonetheless.

10 months later, who benefits from the tax cuts? Even a Fox News poll finds Obamacare more popular that the tax cuts.

"Unfortunately, corporations have not used the money they've saved from the tax cut to raise workers’ pay and any potential increase in compensation could be soaked up by health insurance premiums. And, of course, paying more for health insurance doesn’t help households buy food or shelter. Without substantial income growth for most Americans and without new productive investment by businesses, tax cuts will not boost economic growth. Worse, government spending cuts triggered by cuts in tax revenue could cause a recession."

Obama added the money to the debt because of the 2008 financial crisis caused by Republican policies in banking.

There is clearly a debt crisis in all of American and is like a house of cards. When one collapses so will the rest. Just wait until college/universities start to go bankrupt and all the college profs are in the unemployment line.

They will be asking for bailouts from the feds to support them as well.

It's not the colleges/universities that are holding the bag.

"Baby boomers" is too broad.

You really want to punish those who fought their entire lives to protect SS and Medicare?

How about Vietnam vets?

The tax windfall that wasn't: A troubling new IRS report suggests many Americans may be giving money right back to the government



Americans like their tax refunds. Refunds are good for tax administration, too. Plenty of evidence shows that tax compliance is higher when taxpayers see refunds on their tax returns.

But millions of Americans looking forward to their tax refunds are about to be disappointed, even upset. They will not see their expected refunds when they file their returns in 2019. Even worse, many will be required to pay extra taxes. Why the change? The Republicansí push to sell their tax law to the American public is the culprit.

The tax law signed by President Trump in December of 2017 made many changes to the tax code. The standard deduction increased, but the personal exemptions disappeared. Business owners got a rate cut but the deduction for state and local taxes shrunk. Mortgage interest deduction became less generous, but child credit expanded. Because of all these changes and many others, the withholding form that every American employee filed with his or her employer became outdated when 2018 arrived.
