The Hilarious Way Republicans Define “Middle Class”


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Trump's tax plan just makes the rich richer. John Iadarola and also Mark Thompson, the hosts of The Young Turks, break down the details of the plan. Tell us what you assume in the remark section listed below. Join TYT:

" For months, I have actually been mentioning that Donald Trump as well as congressional Republicans have actually been providing "non-plans" to alter the tax obligation code.

Issuing news release containing absolutely nothing greater than obscure bullet factors– yet somehow also making it clear that their best plan would be extremely regressive– the ruling celebration assured that the last plan would certainly supply on their years of promises of fundamental tax obligation reform.

Well, your home's strategy is currently in, and also it is … not tax reform.

It is a widely regressive tax obligation cut, however unless there is a new definition of "reform" such that word currently means "adjustment in different uncoordinated as well as unprincipled methods," then this is not tax reform, and it is absolutely not does anything to essentially transform the nature of the tax obligation system.

Transforming the dimension of the common deduction, or getting rid of some preferences while broadening others, and even transforming the variety of tax brackets, is merely transforming things within the same standard system.

Several of the Republicans' proposals (especially on business side) are costly and also bad plan, yet they do not change the framework or logic of the tax obligation code."

    Poor, conservative whites will still try to fight for this tax plan, even though it will hurt them.

    “I don’t care that Donald Trump’s proposed tax plan will make so I can barely afford to feed my family. Donald is keeping America safe by banning people from Muslim countries and that’s more important than feeding my family.” This is what Donald Trump supporters will say about Donald’s proposed tax plan

      Trump said during the campaign that the minimum wage of $7.25 per hour is too high.

    This right vs. left debate has got to stop. There are members of the Democratic Party that are just as crooked as Republicans on economic policies. The real fight should be against the career politicians who have sabotaged our entire democratic system to benefit the wealthy. VOTE THEM OUT!

    • Posted by metube, at Reply

      yes, ordinary people who have had real jobs (so that’s not real estate or PR) need to stand in elections. You cant possibly trust anyone who works in PR to work in politics – all they do is spin stories not solve concrete problems

      The gdp has had a steady growth of around 2% since 2010…
      That bill will create a system where there is supply and zero demand because no one can afford anything…

    It’s laughable yet, they intend to push this through and will probably succeed. Middle class is more like less than 100K depending on your race, your educational status and a job that pays in excess of a hundred thousand a year.

    • Posted by Chad Austin, at Reply

      To be honest though, it also depends on where you live too.

    • Posted by Roberto Blake, at Reply

      John Frank depends if you are small business owner actually because gross income on those self employed is usually taxed higher but also making that doesn’t mean keeping that.

      You could make $250,000 but what if to make that you spent $80,000 in salaries and equipment?

      Then after Federal and state taxes on your $170,000 you probably were left with about $135,000.

      If you’re cost of living is $70,000 (metro area that is a mortgage and cost of living modestly for a family of 5)

      You only had a business net profit of about $55,000 which seems like a lot but it’s not even a year of of operating capital for your business, just enough to cover emergencies and a few months of living or business expenses.

      So as messed up as it sounds, $400k is still middle class…

      It’s just the difference between being a salary employee vs being an employer with 2-3 people who work for you part time or full time.

      Unlike employees, anyone with a small business has to spend 30% or more of their money to make money and then pay 20% to 35% of that in taxes.

      When I started making money on my business, it required me to spend almost as much as I used to make when I was an employee.

    • Posted by Steven perdue, at Reply

      John Frank I hope it does go through. That will be the end of Conservatism for At least the next decade and when Trump is impeached and a Democrat gets elected we will just fix the mess….like always. Go ahead, commit political suicide.

    Anyone who gives this video a down vote must immediately admit that they hate facts and will blindly support anything the Republican Party does simply because they hate the Democratic Party. Just be honest and own up to the fact you’re simple minded, petty and worthless to the rest of society.

    Common sense tells you that someone making more than $400k a year is NOT middle class.

    • Posted by Django Marine, at Reply

      Luis San The hell you say? $33K a month is a crap load of money.

    • Posted by Dollius, at Reply

      Born into a “middle class” New English family. My father worked not because he had too, nor because we were struggling, but because it was a thing a man had to do. He spent most of his time hunting, camping and taking us on trips (e.g. England, France, Italy . . . etc). My parents were not working class.

      I am working middle class, because if I don’t work I will lose my house and would have to send my kid to public school. My wife and I combined income is only $250K a year, and we itemize *everything*. We are “struggling” because we have to work to afford our lifestyle.
      Yet we are considered working middle class. Even in California $400K a year is upper middle class (regardless if you work).

      Upper class people do not work, their investments and properties make money for them. They may manage their assets, but usually pay others do it for them. The same applies to non working middle class.

      Most Americans are poor and destitute and have zero savings. If it wasn’t for loans and credit cards the US would look a lot more like El Salvador, than Detroit.

      Django Marine well, not saying it isnt a lot of money. It isn’t as much as u think when u have a family and mortgages to pay

      If I made 400k I could buy a house and quit my full time job for a part time job!

    You know, even in Canada, we had the American dream, and up to about 1980 we were able to strive for it. My Mom and Dad, (now 85 and 86 respectively), were the LAST generation to be able to work hard, save for retirement and enjoy their retirement. THAT DREAM IS OVER!!
    I’m a registered psychiatric nurse and I could work until I drop and NEVER be able to retire like my parents have been able too. My family is small and so my parents can leave a little to my sister and I when they pass, but I won’t be able to leave very much to my loved ones because it will all be eaten up by that time I’m sure.

    • Posted by Advocate For A TYT Canada, at Reply

      Great point

    • Posted by Brigitte G, at Reply

      Just curious Stephen if you and your gf have kids. Only asking b/c there is no, and can be no ‘saving for retirement’ on minimum or slightly above wage when kids enter into the picture. Minimum wage retirement savings WITH kids? Savings? A HA HA HA HA…. Weeeeeee. Just sayin’

    • Posted by jaycol21, at Reply

      Advocate, I’ve been saying this since I was a kid (21…close enough) and had just started working. I remember being told that I could retire a millionaire with a 401K. My first thought was “A million dollars is kind of a lot now. What’s it going to be in 30-40 years? Not a whole helluva lot. My grandparent’s old house (2,000+ sf with a finished basement/attic/yard) cost them $13k dollars and a car was about $3K”.

      The funny thing is that they’re talking about reducing pre-tax contributions as part of this plan, ensuring you’ll never get there through savings. This is a “grab a pitchfork and take to the streets” situation going on right now. It’s depressing how silent everyone’s being about it considering the noise around removing a bunch of statues because of “heritage”, many of which are younger than my dad.
