    The Press is insufferable but I always look forward to watching Sarah slap them around like “wack a mole” too bad she can’t give them a real sledge hammer pounding on the head. But popcorn’s done and I am ready for it to begin! Go Sarah Go!

    Special kind of stupid – stumbled into CNN trying to find the press briefing on tv, and some moron was saying that because of the way Twitter works, they can now check Trump’s twitter timeline to “see exactly what he was doing for Puerto Rico recovery over the past weeks. We already know he went to a rally instead of helping” blah blah blah (not exact quotes)

    Honest to Pete – I just get embarrassed for them sometimes. Don’t look at FEMA, don’t look at USCG – look at twatter.

    I was thinking the other day that if these people didn’t have Twitter, what would they talk about 24×7? It’s not like they Ever bother with actual news –

    I was not sure about Sarah taking this job at first as I did not know much about her, other than she was Mike Huckabee’s daughter. I have come to really appreciate the job she is doing a great job representing the WH and President Trump. She does not allow these jackals to throw her off her game. She does not suffer their stupid repetitive questions.

    So, we can deduct the first $24K of income, PLUS deduct $12K for the individual deduction? Cohn says that 25% of taxpayers itemize, but I am sure of that almost all are small businesses.

    • TheWanderingStar says:

      That may now be true WSB. Over the years the government has been reducing the amount of deductions a taxpayer can elect and also raised the AGI percentage hurdles to take away or reduce deductions. So, what we may be seeing are people who once were able to itemize are falling back to the Standard Deduction or as I know first hand, there people who are on the plus side slightly, who are electing to take the Standard Deduction instead of doing the record keeping.

    • Kroesus says:

      it is the STANDARD deduction that is to be adjusted….so Gross Income (GI) – $12000 (individual) or $24000 (HoH or Joint) or you can take mortgage interest, childcare costs and/or charitable contributions from your GI to get you to your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) if you choose to itemize…..unless they change it you can take the std deduction OR itemize……AGI is used to calculate your tax liability with the proposed %s of 12 25 35 depending on income level……the “loopholes” they talk of eliminating are additional items you could itemize decreasing your AGI and lowering the amount of tax applied to the remainder

      I heard that standard deduction goes to 24K. You lose most state imposed taxes but keep mortgage interest. Not sure about property taxes. Exemptions are still taken but not sure of the amount. Who knows what congress is going to do to it.

      Liked by 1 person

    • $24K is the deduction for a couple filing jointly. If there is only one person in the household (children not included), the the deduction is $12K. It is not a deduction, per se. Deductions come from mortgage interest, and one or two other expenses. Hope this helps.

        Understood, thank you.

        Isn’t there a non-taxable amount in addition to an individual deduction, like the first $15, $20 or $25K? And would those two add up?

      I listened to Cohn’s entire segment and he was awful. He just was not prepared for anything about the President’s taxes. He did answer questions specifically enough. Yeah, a family saves a $1000 bucks and they are going to buy a new car? C’mon Gary. Do not put him in front of the media again. That was embarassing. Bossert runs circles around him.

        • I thought he did a great job. The question about President Trump’s income was rude. Cohn pointed that out obliquely by telling them 3 times that the emphasis was supposed to be the people of the US not whether President Trump was paying more taxes. I still don’t think his taxes are our business. He is audited yearly so if he wasn’t following the code it would have been uncovered. The rest is no one’s business. If the press said they needed to see him have a colonoscopy real time to be sure he didn’t have colon cancer would that be OK?
          Finally Cohn explained for the press babies the facts of life about who estate tax hurts and the fact that the truly rich pay none anyway. The loss of the deductions is what will hit the super rich.

  13. Typical family making $100k a year with two kids and ONLY has standard deductions will save $1000 per year. I love Trump and still will after this tax plan, but this is NOT what I was expecting, $1,000/12= $83.33 per month. That is a pathetic joke of a plan and I bet if you DO itemize, your taxes will go UP. Before people come at me as a Cruzbot, know I can’t stand that scum. I have and will be with Trump ALL 8 years, but this piece, if true, is uniparty BS. We need to make sure that this deal gets much better before they pass it. Sorry Treepers, just being completely honest. My hope is that this is NOT Trumps plan. The other pieces like state deductions and marriage penalty removal are great, but the Gov’t still gets my money and most likely more now, NOT a tax cut. Note: I live in Florida and I do itemize, so this is not a “I am from a blue state and don’t want to lose state deductions”.

        For those of us who live in California no tax reform will be good for us since we will not be able to deduct payment of State taxes from what we pay to the Federal Government. Won’t be good for us personally, but imagine the hurt that will be coming California’s way since they depend on this kind of “stealing” from the Fed Govt. The more Cali has taxed us, the less we have to pay to the Fed Govt. Now Cali taxes will hurt just as much as Fed taxes. Might wake up a bunch of people.

      Unfortunately, without the Ozerocare repeal there are no YUGE tax cuts bc it will look like it blows out the deficit without ending the Medicaid subsidies.(under dopey CBO scoring)

      That is why POTUS tried repeal before tax reform.

      As soon as I saw CoC endorse this plan, I knew it wouldn’t be good for me.
      Maybe we will still get some things good for the country like lower corp tax and repatriating foreign money. Because those benefit the CoC constituency as well as the country.

    • I think that the business part will have a big effect on the economy and that will make a difference in everyone’s life. The actual $ saved in tax will be nice but is not supposed to be a lifesaver. The raise, the ability to find a better job, the return of cash that will be fed into the economy are the real effects. $1000/$2000 feels big on a personal level but a 10% raise puts either to shame.

      • Agreed, and I am excited about the business tax plan, from what I have seen it is what POTUS campaigned on, but this is not a tax cut for the middle or upper middle class. I define middle class as 80k to 120k, upper middle, 120k to 400k, after 400k you are on the lower end of being rich, over a million a year and that is venturing in wealthy territory. When I grew up 50k was middle income. These are household numbers. Lastly, I would argue that the next great competitors of these globalist scum are the middle class earner. With lower regulations (greatest barrier to entry for any business) and extra cash from higher wages AND tax cuts are a quick way to get real competition and innovation going again.

    Oh, these people are insufferable! They do not concentrate on what is important – but, oh how knowledgeable they are about what is happening in Puerto Rico – when not one of them has physically been there – they have the nerve to question the level of urgency – in light of the fact that the logistics of providing assistance is astronomically impaired –

    We need to airdrop these people and let them see firsthand what problems the municipal operants are having – they see a few pictures and automatically they can assess the problems on-the-ground – it is apparent they do not know squat – Tom Bossert knows and has given them an excellent overview of what is involved in providing assistance – and yet – they still criticize the response!

    Sarah has the patience of a saint – how she puts up with these ignorant p-pool children I will never know – but, I certainly admire her – and now – we have April – trying to make something out of nothing – women’s rights – civil rights – what is wrong with her other than she probably needs to be relieved from participation – she just doesn’t get it – the p-pool really doesn’t understand the issue of disrespect because they do it daily – making a mountain out of a mole hill – talking about First Amendment Rights – please tell me what does disrespect for our nation have to do with the First Amendment – the backlash from the American people should be enough to help them understand –

      Utter ignorance by the press on what First Amendment rights actually are.

      This whole NFL farce is a workplace issue, where employers can and do have behavior expectations of employees. The teams’ customers are the fans. The customers are not happy with the widespread disrespectful actions of the employee-players that the employer-owners are encouraging. Because of their unhappiness, the customer-fans are disengaging from the product offered, the NFL. Simple as that, but apparently too complex for the press to comprehend.

        Excerpts from the article “Lengthy Power Restoration…”

        “We thank (U.S.) President (Donald) Trump for authorizing 100-percent cost shar- ing by the federal government for 180 days of emergency work to help begin the process of repairing damaged energy infrastructure,” said APPA President and Chief Executive Sue Kelly.”

        PREPA (PR Electrical Power Authority) was 9 BILLION in the hole due to mismanagement. Poor collection practices,etc. and declared bankruptcy in July.

        http://www.sanjuanweeklypr.com/pdf/Sep-28-17/local.pdf

        PT waived PR’s responsibility to pay the first 25% of the emergency relief costs. Sorry can’t find that article posted on a PR paper yesterday.

        So much for PR paying any of this bill. PR should pay something for their restoration just like TX and FL must have, but PR is bankrupt and won’t be.

        86 NYFD firefighters have arrived in PR to assist. HEROS, everyone of them.

        FEMA is activating the Army is to help restore PR energy grid. First time the army has been used to do this. Both articles are listed in the above Iink, but there are lots of other articles which details what DoD and other US depts. are doing.

That doesn’t mean they will pass it. That may be were the ultimate sabotage occurs but it won’t be in the language.

    Tom Bossert is the MAN! He slapped these POS around like rag dolls. The fact that our President waived any payback from PR for six months tells me that those bastards on that island better build a few damn monuments to our LION!

    I guess none of the press are concerned that the POS running against Roy Moore is in favor of late term abortions. The same way HRC was. You can rip the baby out a day before the birth and have the child kill! His stance against MUSLIMS being in political positions may have Roy win by 30%+!!!!!!!!!!!
