"Socialism, consisting of evolved individuals, will prevail in the end. But as long as people are not highly evolved, individualism will keep coming to the surface. Individualism only exists for the ushering in of spiritual socialism in which evolved souls will live for the greatest good of the greatest number."

~Paramahansa Yogananda

It seems like we're in a world now where if you have the time to contradict, you almost always can successfully. I guess it depends how much it means to us.

Tax policies;

Trump:

Trump wants to cut taxes for all income brackets. New federal income tax brackets 0% eliminate AMT lower corporate tax rate to 15% Trump's tax plan would cost the federal government 9.5 trillion dollars.

Clinton:

Clinton wants to raise taxes on high-income households. Increased taxes on high-income earners new tax bracket of 43.6% for incomes exceeding 5 million dollars Clinton's tax plan is estimated to get 200 to 500 million dollars in higher for the federal government.

Trump:

Position on minimum wage, is all over the map. In Republican debate said wages are too high but later said $7.25 an hour is too low. " I think people should get more." Wants to let States set the minimum.

Franken replied.

But the comedian and former “Saturday Night Live” star quickly pivoted to an attack on the GOP health care bill, which would slash Medicaid for millions of Americans and cut taxes for the wealthy.

“If you’re talking about limousines, how about the top 400 people in terms of tax cuts here?” Franken said. “The amount of money they’ll get in tax cuts would pay for Medicaid for 750,000 people.”

Franken then cited a recent survey in the New England Journal of Medicine which concluded that for every 750,000 people who lose Medicaid coverage, 1,000 to 2,000 people will die.

“So that means you are killing one to two thousand people — killing them!” Franken said. “Basically, people on Medicaid have better health care outcomes; they have access to a doctor. They don’t have to have catastrophic costs; they don’t go bankrupt. This works and it saves lives.”

The senator used the same term former President Barack Obama used to describe the Senate Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

“This is mean,” Franken said, adding: “This is worse than mean — it is cruel.”

Do you remember the big pathological lies that the Don told us about when he said...'We will not cut Social Security Medicare and Medicaid. The Don and his rich Republican buddies wants to cut 23 million people off health care while they give themselves huge tax breaks to satisfy their glutinous desire for power and to live in luxury while most people live in economic slavery perpetuated by a small amount of aristocratic monarchists in Washington. Do u you remember why we fought the British? To rid ourselves of power hungry rich aristocrats.  Well guess who the new kind of monarchists are who are trying to tax us to death with economic burdens, financial burdens, and job serfdom? Yes the Republicans with thier Mifiaoso 'Don' at the top.

The only thing the Republican Party knows how to

From the Washington Post
 
President Trump speaks to members of the media outside the White House on Wednesday before heading to Indianapolis where he announced his administration’s tax plan. (Zach Gibson/Bloomberg)
By E.J. Dionne Jr.  Opinion writer
October 1 at 7:54 PM
Add this to the growing file folder that can be labeled “Depressing but not Surprising”: The only thing today’s Republican Party knows how to do is cut taxes for the very rich.

It’s depressing because the GOP has abandoned roles it once played in our public life: pioneering programs aimed at assisting Americans of modest means in lifting themselves up, and supporting productive government investments that the private sector was unlikely to undertake.

The party of Donald Trump, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell has abandoned the legacy of Abraham Lincoln, who championed the Homestead Act and land-grant colleges; Teddy Roosevelt, who protected vast tracts of nature on behalf of future generations; and Dwight Eisenhower, who pushed for student loans and the Interstate Highway System.


The heirs to Honest Abe, TR and Ike seem to believe in only one thing: throwing vast quantities of money at the already wealthy. And they have the nerve to pretend that they aren’t really trying to further enrich the moneyed classes. They claim that comforting the comfortable will someday, really and truly, help working people by creating jobs and economic growth.

They pretend a lot of other things, too. They say their goal is to “simplify” the tax system, so they reduce the number of individual income-tax brackets to three. Isn’t it funny that in their “simplification,” the tax rate for the richest among us (people earning more than $418,400 a year) would drop from 39.6 percent to 35 percent, but the tax rate for the poorest (those earning less than $9,325 a year) actually would go up , from 10 percent to 12 percent?

The GOP apparently believes that taxing the poor is part of the recipe for growth. Now there is an innovative idea.


The Republicans claim that this tax increase would be offset by other provisions. But there is no way to know exactly how their tax scheme would work because they have still not put out a full plan. All they have offered is a sketch.

For eight months, Republicans told us repeatedly that they would enact a tax bill. Yet they still can’t show us the whole thing.

In fact, for a large swath of the middle and upper-middle classes, this is not a tax cut at all, but a tax increase. Using the details available, the Tax Policy Center concluded that nearly a third of taxpayers with incomes between $50,000 and $150,000 would see their taxes go up, as would a majority of those making between $150,000 and $300,000.

There is much that is very bad here, but perhaps the most insidious aspect of the bill is the part that might be called the Punish Our Opponents Tax Act of 2017.


To pay for their tax cuts for the rich, Republicans propose to make the tax code “fairer” by getting rid of the deduction that people can take for the taxes they pay to state and local governments. Republicans rail against “double taxation” of income when it comes to capital gains. But they have no problem with double taxation when it hurts taxpayers in states that ask their citizens to pay a bit more to provide decent public services and stronger social safety nets.

As the Wall Street Journal reported, the states with the largest deductions for state and local taxes as a percentage of adjusted gross income are New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, California and Maryland. All voted against Trump.

Republican House members from the higher-tax states may yet scuttle this provision that belies the GOP’s devotion to “states’ rights.” Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) called their bluff: “Republicans used to say that the best decisions are made locally, and now they want to tax local decisions.
