POPULIST PROPOSALS UNVEILED …

|| By FITSNEWS || Confirming his prior statements, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump rolled out a populist tax plan this week that he said would take “nearly 50 percent of current filers off the income tax rolls entirely” while “reducing the number of tax brackets from seven to four for everyone else.”

Trump’s plan – which his campaign stated was “revenue neutral” – would reportedly eliminate the income tax for 73 million American households (those making $50,000 or less).  Another 42 million households currently filling out complex tax forms only to determine they owe no taxes “will now file a one page form saving them time, stress, uncertainty and an average of $110 in preparation costs.”

The new four-bracket tax code would eliminate the marriage penalty, the alternative minimum tax and provide individual filers with “the lowest tax rate since before World War II.”

Courtesy of his website, here’s a look at Trump’s flattening of the tax code …

Trump tax brackets

“These lower rates will provide a tremendous stimulus for the economy – significant GDP growth, a huge number of new jobs and an increase in after-tax wages for workers,” Trump said.

In addition to the new tax brackets, Trump also wants to eliminate the death tax and impose a flat fifteen percent tax rate on all business income.

“This lower tax rate cannot be for big business alone; it needs to help the small businesses that are the true engine of our economy,” Trump said.  “Right now, freelancers, sole proprietors, unincorporated small businesses and pass-through entities are taxed at the high personal income tax rates.  This treatment stifles small business.”

That’s for sure …

So … who pays the freight for Trump’s tax cuts?  According to him, his wealthy buddies.

Specifically, Trump’s plan calls for the reduction or elimination of “most deductions and loopholes available to the very rich.”  It also calls for the reduction or elimination of “corporate loopholes that cater to special interests, as well as deductions made unnecessary or redundant by the new lower tax rate on corporations and business income.”

Obviously this website has never seen the value of revenue neutrality.  We believe economic expansion is best achieved by tax cuts, not tax swaps.  Having said that, if Trump is serious about targeting his relief to the middle class and letting wealthy one-percenters pay the freight … well, we’re not going to argue with that.

We’ll have to do some further digging on Trump’s proposals, but at first glance they certainly seem geared toward changing the current structure in such a manner as to empower the individual consumer – while extending lower tax rates on business income to sole proprietors and other small businesses.

Those are good things.

Now … do we agree certain Americans should pay no tax whatsoever?  No, we do not.  We believe a truly fair tax plan requires all Americans – even those at the lower end of the income spectrum – to chip in something.

Anyway … we encourage you to do some digging on Trump’s tax plan, too.  And let us know your thoughts as you do.

Liberal-Tarian collapse September 28, 2015 at 12:32 pm

Liberal-Tarians have lost Boehner. McConnel may be next, and Jeb, Lindsay and Hillary are in the Crapper…

Is this FITSNews conceding that they think Trump gives them the best chance to cling to power,and continue using our money to feed their greed?

Trump better hope the FITSNews types are not on his side. It’s the kiss of death after what Obama has done to our nation.

That said: FITSNews boringly regurgitating what we already know, is worthless. But what it says about the left’s strategy (or position) for those of us who can read them, is invaluable.

Trump won’t be the nominee.Rubio or Cruz (Rubio a better chance) with Trump Fiorina and Carson long shots.

What Trump has done is get rid of Bush and Boehner while assuring that there won’t be amnesty or a path to citizenship for decades.

Democrats are finished.Obama destroyed the party and Trump just buried it.

I am beginning to think that Trump will not be the nominee. He is down to low 20’s in most polls. We will see what this does for his numbers, I suspect a boost, but long term, I am not sold on yet.
Rubio looks like he could be the solid candidate that could garner support in the minority community.

SCPD was a lot of fun September 28, 2015 at 3:27 pm

I did not really care that they boycotted, if they did. The few made no difference. I got feedback, especially from liberals, from all over the country. They had never been talked to with the authority and command I imposed on them. Provoking them was my intent, and it was a wild success.

Stopping it was a time and priority matter w/ me. I manage other websites, and SCPD outperformed many.

People in SC are hungry for it. Once I get some other things lined up, I may ramp SCPD back up. It was a lot of fun. But good writing, and Liberal attacking can be draining. It was a responsibility.

And some of the best traffic I got was defining FITSNews, and the lemming dolts who follow it. That was very personally rewarding because I did it so well, and pissed them off so much.

FITS, last night on his extended interview with 60 Minutes, he said his tax plan would take in the same “or more”. He elaborated that he was going to ramp up military spending, and go fight ISIS. Add in his inherited, and personal career long crony capitalism ventures, it is implausible that you can support this windbag.

“Some people that are getting unfair deductions are going to be raised.
But overall, it’s going to be a tremendous incentive to grow the economy
and we’re going to take in the same or more money. And I think we’re
going to have something that’s going to be spectacular.”

Only way you are going to get free loading Democrat Socialists to pay ‘something’ are user fees.They pay ZERO state or federal income tax however they enjoy all the FREE services the taxpayers provide-Section 8 housing,Food Stamps,Medicaid etc…

Oddly, at first blush, it’s not that bad of a plan. The biggest cuts are actually at corporate taxes which are a smaller portion of overall tax revenues.
