Rand Paul criticizes GOP tax plan for increasing middle class taxes

EY Says Trump Cuts May Be Tax Push for High Incomes

There should be no tax cuts for "the rich" until the president releases his tax returns ("Trump, GOP outline proposal to lower, simplify taxes", September 27).

First, our plan would move from the current seven tax brackets to essentially four brackets: 0%, 12%, 25%, and 35%.

"That's going to be a tough issue, both with regard to the substance of it itself and the politics", said Rep.

[T] he vast majority of American taxpayers pay little or nothing in income taxes; they instead mostly pay payroll taxes such as Social Security and Medicare. Eliminating these deductions will also close numerous loopholes and shelters that reward special interests at the expense of everyone else. Pennsylvanians are sixth, with some the biggest savings seen in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties - all represented, at least in part, by Republicans. "I want it to be the right kind of bill", Hatch said. The New York Times estimated his savings at around $1 billion.

Consider a Burlington County couple. By repealing the estate tax, also known as the death tax, we will no longer punish families when someone dies, and they want to leave their business or farm operation to a loved one. All they have offered is a sketch.

Rep. Frank LoBiondo, a Republican from the Atlantic City area, called the idea "a problem" for him, echoing many others in the region. He also said that the tax center has economists who support the Democratic group, which explained the group's findings opposing the tax-reform plan. That is what Trump and Republicans should be focusing on.

What is the deduction? . The tax code didn't get the way it did by accident. The Tax Policy Center estimated that only about 80 small farms and businesses would pay estate tax this year. Taxpayers in the bottom 95 percent would see tax cuts averaging 1.2 percent of after-tax income or less next year.

The Republican framework aims to be even more ambitious than that - cutting the statutory rate down to just 20 percent, making it lower than the effective rate now paid and meaning there's no way you could pay for it via simplification and loophole closing.

Limiting Interest Deduction of C Corporations.

National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn is one of the administration officials who has been using that 3 percent benchmark, which he repeated on CNBC on Thursday while declaring that perhaps we might get even "substantially over 3 percent". Then came two wars funded on more debt. "That is a basic core premise of our plan and we're committed to it and we're sticking with it".

"We've definitely identified the items that can get us there. I hope the final details are better than this", Paul said in a tweet.

Sen. Bob Casey (D., Pa.) disputed that math, though, citing the bevy of lost deductions.

Eventually, after coming to terms with the failure of their supply-side experiment, the state partially reversed its disastrous tax cuts. For lawyers in high tax states, it's "likely to be close to a wash", said Columbia tax law professor Alex Raskolnikov.

Keep in mind that you should only make tax planning moves and implement tax strategies around the current tax code, not guess the future.

They also say their constituents will face what is, in effect, double taxation. They claim that comforting the comfortable will someday, really and truly, help working people by creating jobs and economic growth.

It is unclear if farms will be able to deduct interest costs.
