Gold Star Widow Called White House To Discuss Taxes, They Hung Up On Her

Millions of Americans found themselves on the short end of the stick when they filed their taxes under Trump’s new scam of tax laws this year. One of the most affected groups of people were Gold Star families that are collecting survivors’ benefits — leaving those families to pay out thousands more in taxes at the end of the year. Considering these specific families have already lost their main financial support, it makes this added financial turmoil that much more disgusting.

3. And a lot of mega corporations paid nothing.



The following is a list of the country’s largest publicly-held profitable corporations that paid no federal income taxes in 2018 on billions in U.S. income, according to ITEP analysis of 560 companies. ITEP reports U.S. income before federal taxes, and takes into consideration paid state and local taxes, which could reduce or increase U.S. income. The report does not look at total tax provision, a number that could include foreign taxes and deferred taxes. All figures, except for tax rate, are in millions.

After all, he has shown such respect to veterans in the past.

6. The notion of "sacrifice" is foreign to cadet bone spurs

As evidenced by his unvarnished contempt for Gold Star families, including Khzir Khan and his wife during the 2016 campaign. So this news comes as no surprise.

As my father — a career US Army NCO — used to say: he wouldn’t make a decent pimple on a PFC’s butt!
