GOP tax "reform" exposed by GOP member


Recommended Posts

By Jay Bookman
Every year since taking control of the U.S. House, Republicans have promised the American people that they would enact tax reform that would slash the top income-tax rate from 39.6 to 25 percent and do so without raising the deficit or hurting the middle class. The policy has been the centerpiece of the GOP "jobs program," such as it is, with promises that once enacted the tax-rate reduction would produce millions of new jobs. It was also embraced by 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who made it the foundation of his economic platform.

And all along, year after year, Democrats have claimed that such tax policy would be mathematically impossible, and that the plan would actually increase taxes on poor and middle-class Americans while slashing them on the richest 1 percent of Americans. Blog posts here and here and here and here documented that case thoroughly.

Now, thanks to U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and a Republican from Michigan, we know who was right. It wasn't the Republicans. To the contrary, Camp's work documents thoroughly just how unrealistic and even deceptive the GOP claims had been.

In drafting his 978-page rewrite of the federal tax code, Camp tried heroically to put the vague promises of his fellow Republicans into actual policy. He took them seriously, and found them unworkable. The tax-reform package that he released last week contains a lot of good work, but in the end, after cutting a lot of tax deductions, he was able to bring the top tax rate of 39.6 percent all the way down to ... 35 percent.

ROTFLMAO

The ignorance of this person is extreme. The house under the Republicaans has sent a budget and hundreds of bills to the Senate where Majority leader Reid just kills them. What Republicans are now pushing for with the failure of Obama care is to increase the lead in the House and take the Senate. The Democrats will love the filibuster rule they passed when that happens.

Republicans like Ryan are actually domestic terrorists, they are on record hating poor people and the more dead poor people the better, for them.

 

Also, you cant be a republican or teapartier aka American Taliban and be a Christian, it is not possible.

I do not think Republicans can run anything.. let alone this country

 

It is going to take some serious actions to make think of ever voting for a Republican..

 

I considered Romney... the more I learn here the more I am glad I voted for Obama

 

The 1% will not reinvest their money in the citizens of the US.. They could care less about us or the US.. They want a free ride to make more money and f*ck us all

Both sides suck to high heaven, toward the end of Bush's last term I had swore I would never vote Republican again but the Dems actually make me ill. I've been saying it for years, phuck the 1%'s but I've seen no real sign the Obama administration feels the same way, in fact they seem content attacking the rest of us.
