You won’t believe what tax reform will cost wealthy Californians in 2019
Post Date: 2018-04-18 09:31:53 by Tooconservative

Lots of people just talk about soaking the rich, but Donald Trump and the GOP actually did it — in California, anyway, although they won’t be alone. The controversial phase-out of the state and local tax deduction (SALT) will drop like a bombshell on high-tax-rate blue states, which is one reason why Democrats so staunchly opposed it. According to an analysis from California’s Franchise Tax Board, the Golden State will be Ground Zero: President Donald Trump’s tax cuts will be anything but for about 1 million California taxpayers who will owe Uncle Sam more money a year from now. They’re the Californians who will lose a collective $12 billion because the new law ...

The Richest 1% Will Own Two-Thirds Of Global Wealth By 2030, Report Finds [Full Thread]

Back in November, Credit Suisse highlighted an alarming - yet altogether unsurprising - milestone in the increasing concentration of global wealth that has been perhaps the most influential force behind the populist revolts that rocked the US in 2016 and have continued to unfurl across Europe. According to the Swiss bank's annual "global wealth pyramid," for the first time, the wealthiest 1% of the world's population had accumulated more than half of its aggregate household wealth. Credit Suisse's researchers describe in stark terms how global wealth inequality had actually improved somewhat in the years between the start of the new millennium and the financial crisis ...

The Omnibus Spending Bill Is a Fiscal Embarrassment

Republicans prove yet again why they deserve to be labeled the biggest swamp spenders.Republicans are once again proving why they actually deserve the label of the biggest swamp spenders. The latest gigantic omnibus spending bill would fund the government for the remainder of the fiscal year—with a price tag of $1.3 trillion. That doesn't include entitlement funding or payments for the interest on our debt—which continue to grow and drive our debt higher, as Republicans have apparently given up on slowing down spending. Most Republicans favor the bill as a way to avoid the self-inflicted risk of another government shutdown. Never mind that members have had no time to read the ...

Is The U.S. Economy Really Growing? (No) [Full Thread]

Most people are aware that GDP growth has been lower than expected in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis of 2008 (GFC). For example, real GDP growth for the past decade has been closer to 1.5% than the 3% experienced in the 50 years prior to 2008. As a result of the combination of slow economic growth and deficit spending, most people are also aware that the debt/GDP ratio has been rising. However, what most people don’t know is that, over the past ten years, the dollar amount of cumulative government deficit spending exceeded the dollar amount of GDP growth. Put another way, in the absence of deficit spending, GDP growth would have been less than zero for the past decade. ...

Against Trump's Tariffs

The Trump administration has announced it plans to raise taxes on Americans in the form of tariffs. On Thursday, the president promised steel and aluminum executives that he would protect them against foreign competition by levying tariffs on both metals in the coming weeks: 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum. The effect of tariffs will be to impose a higher tax burden on Americans, while increasing the cost of living, and the costs imposed on entrepreneurs using the taxed materials.For centuries, economists have examined and explained the negative consequences of tariffs. And for more than a century, the economists of the Austrian school have added even more sophisticated and ...

Add trade tensions and the threat they pose to economic growth to the list of worries that were already dogging stock-market investors in 2018. President Donald Trump’s announcement Thursday that he was set to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel imports sent stocks tumbling. Weakness continued Friday morning, with stocks opening sharply lower before rebounding off lows, with the S&P 500 SPX, +0.51% taking back some of the previous day’s decline while the Dow DJIA, -0.29% ended lower for a fourth straight session. While underlying fundamentals remain strong, investors said the threat of a trade war adds another layer of uncertainty to existing concerns about inflation and ...

White House Issues Statement On Today's Historic Market Crash (Dow Plunges Almost 1200 Points)

Today, the Dow Jones suffered (including the plunge after hours) its biggest point crash in history, turning negative for the year, which for a president who takes particular delight in every uptick in the market, was terrible news. So, as many expected, the White House issued a statement after the close, commenting on today's market crash. Predictably, there was little commentary of the "day to day" moves, and instead Trump deflected by pointing out that he is now focusing on the economy's "long-term fundamentals" instead. Full statement below: "The President’s focus is on our long-term economic fundamentals, which remain exceptionally strong, with ...

The Environmental Protection Agency, seen by President Trump as a bloated bureaucratic whale, is on schedule to fulfill his promise to reduce its staff nearly in half by the end of his first term mostly through retirements, not cuts, according to officials. The EPA Tuesday provided to Secrets its first year staff results which show that the agency is below levels not seen since former President Reagan’s administration.

The States' Unfunded Pension Nightmares

Pensions: The stock market boom has helped everyone, right? Nope. States' pension funds have nearly $4 trillion of stock investments, but somehow haven't benefited from soaring stock prices. A new report by the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) shows why this is true. It notes that the unfunded liabilities of state and local pension plans jumped $433 billion in the last year to more than $6 trillion. Let that number sink in for a moment: It's one-third the size of the U.S. economy, equal to "a whopping $18,676 for every man, woman, and child, or nearly $50,000 for every household in America," as The Daily Signal notes. It's a massive amount of money, in ...

The Higher the Better, Says 2017 StudySupply-side economics isn’t delivering. Many lawmakers in Congress and in statehouses around the country peddle the same supply-side theory about income taxes: the lower the tax, the more the economy will grow. But new research from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy reveals this economic approach is failing to deliver in the states. In fact, states with higher income taxes outperformed states with no income tax. My colleagues and I compared the economic track record of the states that have charted the most radically different courses with their income tax policies, or lack thereof. Specifically, we examined economic growth in the nine ...

Donald Trump: King of Deregulation?

In a speech on October 11 promoting his tax-reform plan, Donald Trump spoke rosily of America’s economic revival, crediting himself for having cleared the way for growth. “Since January of this year, we have slashed job-killing red tape all across our economy,” the president said. “We have stopped or eliminated more regulations in the last eight months than any president has done during an entire term. It’s not even close.” It seemed a characteristic bit of Trumpian magniloquence—he’s not only a boffo deregulator, he’s the best ever! Still, it was a remarkable claim.

A Conservative Tax Hike [ending state-tax deductions]

President Donald Trump’s tax-reform plan is in total a very expansive steaming pile of irresponsibility — and the president’s argument that it will lead to sustained 6 percent economic growth is pure fantasy — but it does have one attractive provision: raising taxes on blue-state progressives. The plan would eliminate the deductibility of state and local income taxes for federal tax purposes. In the highest bracket, Californians are paying 13.3 percent in state income taxes, and that money comes off the top when those high-earning Silicon Valley types are calculating federal taxes. In New York City, the Wall Street guys are paying 8.82 percent to the state and another ...

A companion piece to Andrew’s post this morning about the diminishing appetite among Republicans for tax cuts unto death. The mystery in Bannon’s case is why he’s pushing this knowing that Paul Ryan’s going to vomit when he hears about it and the conservative, tax-cutting House Republicans caucus will quickly dismiss it out of hand. Maybe that’s the point. Steve Bannon is causing a stir inside the administration by pushing an idea that’s anathema to most Republicans: raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans to pay for steep middle and working-class tax cuts.
